Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra Golf & Spa Resort
Ranked #6 of 12 Hotels in Nong Thale
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 July 2012

Maybe as an executive summary: This hotels is one of the best managed, I ever stayed in. Service is absolutely perfect. Distinctive and personal, friendly and always with a smile! They upgraded us to a wonderful suite, never let any wish unanswered. Yes, it is a five star resort and you should expect a good and professional service, but the behavior still makes the difference. The park and pool area is outstanding and the direct entry to the pool was a gift we appreciated. Rooms and restaurants are well maintained, clean and little extras were always provided. Food options are ranging from Thai over Indian to Italian food. We tried the whole range and everything has been just delicious. Breakfast was very good and the offer would cover Global needs. There is multilingual concierge and tour consulting staff, so we would always get our questions about possible activities answered in German - tips were excellent and very professional too. You should take the opportunity to use the hotels speed-boat to Hong Island. But there is always an option too, to rent a car and do the Island hopping from Ao Nang or Krabi by longtail- or other boats on our own behalf. I can only recommend this hotel.

We have just returned from a trip to Thailand where we first spent 3 nights in Bangkok, followed by 4 nights in Phuket and finally 4 nights in Krabi where we stayed in the Sofitel Phokeethra Krabi Golf & Spa Resort. The highlight of the holiday was definitely Krabi, and we only wish we had stayed there for longer. We have vowed to go back to the Sofitel and spend longer there. Some highlights from the stay:

- room was amazing, very clean and spacious with all the amenities
- a huge pool which needs to be seen to be believed
- great restauraunt with great choice
- fantastic spa where we both spent a relaxing afternoon
- lots of activities, golf, rainy day activities, boat trips, spa's, swimming pool

The actual hotel is very grand and there has been clearly a lot of attention to detail and the theme throughout the hotel meant that it was a pleasure to spend time there - whether it it relaxing by the pool, sitting in the reception area or sitting in the bar. The hotel is extremely clean and everything was imaculate with the hotel staff regularly cleaning and clearly taking pride in the hotel.

Without a doubt the best thing about this hotel is the staff. I would say that this made our stay an unforgetable experience. The staff are so polite, welcoming and attentitive - they would actively seek to help where ever possible and always did so with a smile. In particular we spent some evenings in the Explorer Bar where the bar tender Ljoc (Lock) made us some fantastic cocktails and advised us where we should go during the day and what we should do and see. Drinking in the Explorer Bar was an absolute pleasure.

We also went on the speed boat trip to Hong Island - I would recommend this to anyone who stays. This is the Thailand that we wanted to see, with clear blue sea, powder sand beaches, and amazing wildlife. Here we went kayaking around the island to the emarald lagoon.

We have stayed in some great hotels over the years, and with out a shadow of a doubt this is number 1 and we will definitely being going back!!

You may get disappointed when you arrive and realize there is a road between the Hotel and the beach, however after getting in there, you will see how nice the staff is (they struggle a little to use English, but they do their best).
Good swimming pool, good kids area, the dinner is a good experience, the Thai dishes are excellent. The service during the dinner could be better if they had more people -They were really running to get all guests served.
But the best was the boat trip the Hong Island - 7 minutes by a fast and high quality boat, our little boy really enjoyed with other babies and small kids. Nice beach, lunch, and good service. It was really a memorable long weekend there.

Very nice rooms, a huge pool and helpful staff! Only thing thats was a bit of a disappointment was the extremly small beach but I guess the enormous pool made it up for it. The breakfast killed!

The Sofitels pool is certainly huge and amazing. We had garden view rooms opening out towards the kids pool which was good considering we have 3 young children. Unfortunately though our 2 rooms were not interconnecting so the 5 of us had to sleep in one room. I really don't know why hotels can not guarantee connecting rooms when you are booking in advanced. It is good that the pool is large as we would not recommend the beach. The beach has some broken glass. The food at the hotel was very nice. For cheaper meal options there are a couple of restaurants 5 minutes walk up the road. We went to a great bar just up the road across the bridge where we had cocktails. The hotel is certainly 5 star and also has the prices to match. The day spa was so nice and the traditional Thai massage was amazing! Though it was more expensive than a cheap massage on the beach it was well and truly worth every single cent..... So much that I had to have another and sent my husband to have a Thai massage. The kids club was brilliant, very very nice staff and very clean and well managed. Our kids loved it. We did the Hong Island tour from the Sofitel, I highly recommend this. It was beautiful and we enjoyed this more than our trip to Phi Phi Island by far. Our tour to Phi Phi island was very scary! Luckly our kids were in kids club as it was 2 meter swell on our boat trip and we were all terrified to say the least. I think the tours take you out regardless of conditions, we had no idea otherwise we would not have gone. One thing is that we didn't leave emergency details of people back at home in case something did go wrong. Also, all the stops to and at Phi Phi island were crowded!!!! and Phi Phi was very touristy, and crowded. Such a shame. To be honest, it wasn't for us. But, I regards to the hotel, it was nice and you wouldnt be disappointed in their 5 star service etc. do remember it is French influence and less of a Thai influence hotel.
