Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra Golf & Spa Resort

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 April 2011

I booked the hotel and didn't expect too much from the stay because it is just one night stop by ( on the way to Bangkok). The staff, hotel environment, room etc are very wonderful and they are beyond my expectation. I am sure to stay longer on my next Krabi visit. This time I haven't tried Spa yet.

First impression is hotel pick up at Krabi airport. On Time, nice and clean van.

Front service was great will convinience and also welcome drink.

Room was great. my family was upgraded to suite with seperate living room.

Bed was also great. you can stay in your bed forever. ^^

Restaurant: Maya, White Lotus, another Italian restaurant I cannot remember, were great.

Oh, free speed boat to Hong Island.

Last but not least, service was perfect in everywhere.


I definitely will be there again.

Sofitel Krabi is up to Sofitel standards. Everything you want is there, nice big rooms, nice food, nice staff, nice pools, nice gym, basically anything you need. Unfortunately it's 25 minutes from any life. You need to take a shuttle to Ao Nang.

I would not stay here again, but if you are looking for a quiet honeymoon, or have a lot of kids or is an older couple looking for a quiet location, this is perfect.

I recommend finding one of the better hotels in downtown ao nang. (didn't look like there was any good hotels there though)

Very nice hotel. Staff are friendly and helpful. very nice pool. Bought the package from AirasiaGo and was very reasonable.

The hotel room is spacious and they included an extra bed for free. The hotel provides a free trip to Hong Island (about 15 mins away). They can also prepare a lunch for your group if required (price will depend on your order).

According to the wife, the Spa is very good. However, expect to pay premium prices for the spa treatments.

They have a decent Kids' Club, and my kids had a great time.

The only downside of this hotel is its distance from Ao Nang town. It is approx a 30 min drive to Ao Nang, and this can add to the expenses if you travel in a group. The hotel provides a shuttle to Ao Nang for 100 Baht per person per way. Alternatively, you can get a taxi or tuk tuk for 500 Baht.

There are no shopping amenities within walking distance, so will need to go to town for shopping.

Whilst the hotel does serve pork dishes, there are plenty of seafood dishes for Muslim guests to enjoy.

We happened to stay during the Songkran festival, and the hotel had arranged activities. Alot of fun, but a bit loud if you are looking for peace and quiet.

All in all, a great stay in a very nice hotel.

Just stayed four nights at this hotel - it was excellent. Bit out of the way, but good transfers to nearby beach and island.

In Krabi I would definitely use again.

Room Tip: A club was exceptional
