This modern family-focused resort sits on a peaceful part of beautiful Ao Nang Beach.

The Centara fronts soft golden sands at the quieter end of idyllic Ao Nang Beach. Its low-rise design leaves guests surrounded by Krabi’s towering jungle-clad cliffs and you’re just steps from the warm turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea.

The large lagoon-style main pool is the hub of this laid-back tropical resort. There’s a great kids’ club and the kids’ pool has a fun waterslide to keep little ones occupied for hours while you head off for a Thai massage at the soothing Spa Cenvaree. Guestrooms are refreshingly modern and light, each with floor-to-ceiling windows to showcase the pool or sea views. Dedicated Family Residences come with a children’s bunk bed area and a spacious terrace.

Food centres around Italian and Asian flavours. Tuck into tasty Pugliese pizzas at Piazere Pastaria, or head to Sands Beach Club for mouth-watering Thai seafood dishes such as green mango salad with soft shell crab. In the evenings, take a seat at the Beach Bar. The resort is also within walking distance of local restaurants and bars if you fancy a change of scenery.

Activities here are all about the natural landscape; take a long-tail boat ride around the Andaman Sea’s picture-perfect islands, go trekking in the rainforest to spot monkeys, or scale the limestone karsts on a rock-climbing adventure.
