Description

Hugging the golden sands of Tab Kaek Beach on one side and the hilly jungles of Mu Koh Phi Phi National Park on the other, Banyan Tree Krabi is located on one of Krabi’s prettiest plots of land.

Drawing on local folktales, the design is inspired by the naga, a snake-like dragon said to have roamed the surrounding jungles in ancient times. References are found throughout the resort, from the wavy wall panels designed to resemble the creature’s twisting movements to the scale-like patterns in the bathrooms, carpets, and wallpaper.

The hilltop lobby, resembling a dragon’s lair (albeit a very chic one) with golden stone tables and emerald lights the size of watermelons, is a showstopper: not only does it offer the best vantage point of the resort, but the infinity-edged water feature flowing down a seemingly bottomless pit is a marvelous work of art.

Private pool galore. Each of the resort’s 72 rooms, from the entry-level suites to the two-bedroom beachside villas, comes with its own pool and jet pool – some wrapping around three sides of a villa, others taking over the entire balcony length.

Swathed in purple silks, cream-colored fabrics, and sun-bleached wood, the bedrooms and living areas are bright and spacious and spill out onto daybed-dotted gardens or balconies perfectly positioned to take in the dramatic orange-and-pink sunsets. Book the suites if you’re after sea views. The villas are grand if you want extra space and more privacy.

The resort delivers on Banyan Tree’s reputation as one of Thailand’s leading wellness brands with a spa the size of a small village. Its centerpiece is a hydrotherapy complex with all the bells and whistles: an ice fountain, vitality pool, jet pool, heated beds, steam room, sauna, and others. There’s also a sizeable lounger-lined pool overlooking the beach, a kids’ club with its mini water park, a gym, and clear kayaks and paddle boards to explore a nearby hidden cove.
