Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Krabi 

Escape to a tropical dreamland

A classic and tranquil resort set in a secluded cove edged by emerald-cloaked cliffs.

Hidden away in a cove surrounded by tropical forest, a stay at the Centara Grand Beach Resort will leave you feeling like you have entered a different world. Arriving by boat is an adventure in itself and there is plenty to do during a stay here. To switch off completely, take a book and lounge on a sun bed on Pai Plong Bay before cooling off in the sea or the swimming pool. Children have their own pool and kids’ club to keep them entertained while you sink into the Jacuzzi or unwind with a treatment at the superb SPA Cenvaree. There are also watersports, fantastic snorkelling opportunities and a well-equipped fitness centre.

Why we love Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Krabi

  • Tucked away among the trees, the SPA Cenvaree is a scented haven where you can enjoy time-honoured holistic therapies

  • There’s a great variety of dining options, from a small and intimate Japanese restaurant to a laidback beachside terrace

  • It’s perfect for water babies of all ages, with a fabulous two-level pool complex and watersports such as canoeing and snorkelling
