Centara Anda Dhevi Resort Spa - Krabi, Thailand

The beach town of Krabi is one of Thailand’s best destinations for vacationers and backpackers alike. The stunning beaches, majestic mountains, and lush greenery make for one of the most unique settings you could imagine. Throw in a great mix of restaurants, nightlife, and shopping and you have got one of Thailand’s premier holiday spots.


 A great place to stay within walking distance of all of the action is Centara Anda Dhevi Resort Spa, a beautiful resort just minutes away from both Ao Nang Beach and Noppharat Thara Beach. Upon arrival, the staff will treat you with the trademarked Thai hospitality to immediately make you feel welcome and at home. They start off with refreshing drinks and a cold towel to help you cool off from the sweltering Thai heat.

 Each room comes with all of the amenities you could ask for to make your vacation as relaxing as possible. Some rooms even have balconies that dip straight into the massive pool. The vast pool offers a nice, cool respite from the midday heat. At night, the lit up pool creates a beautiful ambiance that makes the resort glow even more. No trip to the pool is complete without ordering a mango sticky rice or mojitos from the poolside menu.

The resort also offers a number of luxurious spa packages at a very affordable rate. Thailand is already known for their cheap massages and even at a luxurious resort like Centara Anda Dhevi, they are much cheaper than what you would be able to get for the same price back home. The staff cater to your every need to make sure that you hit peak relaxation during your holiday.


 On site is the Palm Court restaurant that has both buffet style meals and a la carte items ranging from Western to Thai to other Asian favorites. Of course, Krabi is also a town known for its nightlife. Frequent happy hours at the restaurant, the lobby bar, and the poolside bar helps you prepare for an exciting night out in Ao Nang’s nightlife districts. The main hub of Ao Nang’s nightlife is less than a ten minute walk from Centara Anda Dhevi.

 If you’d like to wander further than your feet allow, motorbike rental shops are right across the street from the resort for just $6 a day. This opens up a lot more opportunity to explore Krabi beyond just the nearby beaches. Krabi’s other attractions include the vast night market and the strenuous but rewarding hike to Tiger Temple. Both are located in Krabi town about 30 minutes from the traveler’s hub of Ao Nang and can be reached cheaply by motorbike if one is up for an adventure.

And of course, no trip to Krabi is complete without hopping on a boat to visit the stunning beaches of Railay just a few minutes away.
