Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Sofitel Phokeethra opened in 2007 and it faces Klong Muang beach, in Krabi. It is a shame that it is not directly on the seafront, but sports enthusiasts will certainly enjoy the nine-hole golf course next to the establishment. This Sofitel, like the other hotels of the group, offers a good level of facilities, but the impressive building it is housed in does not blend in seamlessly into the beautiful countryside of this part of Thaïland.

    Location 1.0 /10

    The establishment is near to Klong Muang beach, some 20 mi from Krabi Town, which is around half an hour away by car. As for airport in Krabi, it's around 30 mi away, so it will take you around 40 minutes to get there . Finally, Ao Nang is some 10 mi away, approximately twenty minutes by car.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    Spread over three floors, the 276 rooms of the hotel are reasonably sized, from 490 sq ft to 1,600 sq ft. The Deluxe rooms even include a large lounge area. Whatever the category, they all have large beds. However, there are no distinguishing features in the interior decor; even if the rooms are very comfortable, they are totally devoid of charm. The superior rooms are decorated in pinkish tones and even if they are not as big as the Deluxe rooms, they seem to be more comfortable. The terrace, or balcony depending on which floor you are one, offers a fine view of the beach or garden. As for the equipment, nothing to complain about there: there is a television, a safe, air conditioning, a minibar with tea and coffee-facilities, a direct international telephone line, and room service 24-hours a day. As for the bathrooms, they include a hair-dryer, dressing-gowns and slippers. The bathtub and the shower are separate and the hospitality products are all from the Occitane brand (whereas the suites have Hermès products).

    Overview 7.20 /10

    It is hard not to notice the Sofitel Phokeethra, an imposing building on the coast road. Its colonial style, which in itself is not displeasing, really stands out from the traditional Thai buildings. When you enter the huge entrance hall, you are on the second floor which affords beautiful views of the sea. The reception desks are each built into their own little alcove. The main asset of the hotel is its huge 75,300 sq ft swimming pool that practically winds all the way round the hotel. There is even a bar in the centre of the pool, around which deck chairs and parasols are scattered. There is children's club here which offers various activities throughout the day, and while the kids are playing the grown-ups can take a visit to the spa which has 12 treatment rooms, with one dedicated to face treatments. All built around a central pool, it is a shame that there aren't any outdoor treatment rooms, although one bonus is that some of them can accommodate couples.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The establishment includes three restaurants. The main restaurant, the Maya, is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the cuisine is international. The interior decor is also inspired by the colonial style, but the place is rather dark. The only touch of colour comes from the blue glasses on the tables! It offers a buffet breakfast, and a la carte lunch and dinner. The other two restaurants, which are only open in the evening and offer an a la carte dinner, share the same terrace. The Venezia offers Italian cuisine while the Phokeethra is a Thai restaurant. In short, you have the choice between Western and Thai cuisine. Finally, if you have a sweet tooth, the Café Vienna offers a selection of tea, coffee and home-made pastries, among other sweets!

    To know

    The Sofitel Phokeethra is not directly on the beach, but on the other side of the coast road. Like all the beaches in Thaïland, this one is public, so there are no deck chairs or parasols. The fine sand beach is very vast. The seaside countryside facing the limestone islands is superb, and at low tide, the sea outlines a vast area that stretches out of sight. The slope is a bit too shallow for swimming though; rather than training your freestyle, it's quite a nice place to splash around in. The area gets very little wind and is very quiet - the ideal place to relax! The hotel proposes a few non-motorised water sports.

      The Sharaton Krabi occupies a 40-acre estate, so you will be happy to know that you can ask for a golf car to get around it! The hotel opened in 2003 and was built in the same vein as the other hotels belonging to the group, with comfort and high quality facilities and services being essential. It is just a shame that there is not an Asian touch in sight.

      As its name suggests, the Tubkaak is a charming little hotel located in Krabi. It opened in 2003 and the few facilities dotted around its 6-acre property have been designed to provide guests with the highest levels of comfort. It is worth bearing in mind that the hotel is not recommended for children though, and its clientele actually consists entirely of couples.

      With just 57 rooms, the Amari Vogue Resort is a small, modestly-sized establishment, its various buildings stretch (lengthwise) down towards the sea. This, of course, means that there are lots of steps around the resort. Given that the hotel offers no facilities for children, apart from a small swimming pool, this establishment is better suited to couples. The hotel's clientele consists primarily of French, English and American guests.

      The Centara Grand Beach Resort, opened in 2006, has taken over from its predecessor, the Central Krabi Bay Resort. Set in the heart of nature and surrounded by high karst relief, the only way to get here is by boat. Its strong point is its beautiful undisturbed beach, where you can relax in an isolated, idyllic setting.
