Banyan Tree Krabi 

Where nature is the star

Surrounded by the protected landscapes of national and marine parks, this serene resort is a luxurious haven.

This 10-acre hideaway is surrounded by unspoilt nature – the lush jungle landscapes of Hat Noppharat Thara–Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park are on the doorstep and the resort backs the delightfully quiet Tubkaek Beach. And then there are the views over to the limestone islands perched out in the Andaman Sea. The architecture and interior design really make an impression as soon as you step into the grand lobby with its circular waterfall at its centre that cascades down into The Grotto below, and the framed vistas of karst islands ahead of you. A natural spring water stream that flows from the hills behind the jungle-cloaked hills backing the resort has been routed to create an ‘island’ where you’ll find a couple of the resort’s restaurants, the spa, kids’ facilities and the open-air Kredkaew Bar which is just a few steps from the sand.

The resort’s dining options are as unforgettable as its setting, spa and design. There’s the all-day Naga Kitchen where you can sit down to a wide selection of international and Thai dishes, and the open-air signature restaurant, Saffron. The unique and wonderfully romantic Bird’s Nest restaurant is going to be one of the hot tables in Krabi thanks to its setting on platforms above the lush jungle floor, the views out over the glittering sea and the mouth-watering Thai dishes.

Alternatively, eat your meals in the comfort of your own suite or villa. In-room dining is available round the clock. Enjoy Thai and international menus in your villa or suite, or treat yourself to the Banyan Tree's renowned in-villa barbecue which is presented by their professional private chef in the comfort of your own space.

The Naga Kitchen
The Banyan Tree Krabi’s main restaurant is where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served. The focus here is on both international and Thai cuisine.

The resort’s signature restaurant where you can book a table for dinner and enjoy the traditional tastes of Thailand and Southeast Asia.

Bird’s Nest
For a unique al fresco setting, head to the Bird's Nest where private tables are located amid the trees and have views of the Andaman Sea. The menu here has a host of innovative Thai dishes.

Kredkaew Bar
For a more informal experience, head to Kredkaew Bar which is located close to the beach. It’s open from 11am to 11pm and serves a selection of Mediterranean-inspired tapas dishes and refreshing drinks.

For that special night, enjoy a spot of destination dining. Enjoy dinner under the stars and with your toes in the sand and listen to the soundtrack of the waves as you dine on Western or Thai creations.
