Centara Grand Beach Resort Krabi is a large, laidback property with great facilities set within its own peaceful bay against a stunning national park backdrop. In contrast to many other beachfront properties in Thailand’s Krabi province, it’s impossible to reach by road. The only way get to the resort is by speedboat from Nopparatthara Pier, which lends this wonderful location an all-the-more secluded and private feel. Despite its remote location, there are extensive facilities to enjoy including a choice of several restaurants, a two-tiered swimming pool and a luxurious spa and fitness centre. It’s a real pleasure to be surrounded by such incredible natural beauty, and there are plenty of activities to do ranging from cultural to sporting pursuits, from challenging activities to lounging around on the beach.

There are several accommodation categories to choose from including private units for couples complete with outdoor jacuzzis, private villas with plunge pools, family rooms and a range of standard and deluxe rooms to choose from. All rooms come with air conditioning and complimentary Wi-Fi and have views of either the ocean or the resort’s pretty gardens. The décor is modern Thai in feel with wood and stone furnishings throughout, and plenty of windows to let in the natural light.

When not lolling by the pool or in the spa, there are plenty of activities to participate in. Some are focused on nature and wildlife, while others are more geared towards culture and heritage. Visits to nearby hot springs, rock climbing at one of the country’s largest rock-climbing centres, white water rafting, snorkelling sessions and island-hopping boat excursions are all popular pursuits. Plenty of other activities such as beach football, beach volleyball, canoeing, aqua aerobics and paddle boarding are also readily available.

The facilities comprise three large restaurants and a casual lounge, and private dining on the beach at sunset can be arranged on request. It’s possible to upgrade to Club level accommodation and benefit from the facilities provided in the Club Lounge and reduced rates at the Spa. Swimming in the two-tiered pool or enjoying a leisurely stroll along the pristine 500metre-long beach are a real delight, and there’s also a well-equipped fitness centre, a shop and a library.

The resort welcomes children of all ages, although those of 12 years and above pay adult rates. Family rooms house two double beds, accommodating up to 3 adults or 2 adults and 3 children, and rooms with connecting balconies can be requested. The two-bedroom Beachfront Villa is also a good option for families looking for a spot of indulgence. Given that the resort lies in a national park, there’s plenty of wildlife around. Monkeys in particular can be curious and it’s best to keep doors closed at all times! There’s a children’s club with a program of daily activities and a pool just for children. Parents are reminded to ensure that children remain under adult supervision at all times.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

  • We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
