Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort Review

Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort is a five star idyllic beachfront retreat, set on a private sandy beach (Klong Muang beach) with lots of landscaped greenery and space - the lawns between the pools and the beach create a very open feel and the hammocks in the trees are inviting for an afternoon of slumber.

If you want to spend your vacation relaxing, unwind and enjoy some quiet time, Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort may be what you are looking for.

If you want to be in the middle of nightlife action scene and shopping, you may have to look elsewhere such as Ao Nang beach.

 

Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort's location

Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort's location is quite isolated; far enough away from Ao Nang beach to be quiet and peaceful, but near enough for a visit to nightlife and plenty of bars and restaurants (10 minutes by taxi).

The resort has its own private beach which is beautiful and has soft sand and clear water. There are also sun loungers positioned on the private sandy beach front.

The pools are great, in particular the large pool is nicely designed with lots of seating with shade to both relax and swim or play with the kids. The pools are also children friendly which is not too deep.

The infinity pool made you feel like you are on the edge of the ocean when you swam up to the edge as it looks straight onto the beach.

The bar in the pool is great and you can drink a cocktail while soaking up the natural surroundings.

Recommended restaurants outside Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort

A 'Swiss Guy' owned restaurant (turn right out of the main gate, and it is 100 metres on the left side) was a definite winner real authentic Thai food, just amazing.

Outside the resort, literally across the road is a real nice restaurant called the Terrace, which offers a wide menu and is cheap!

Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort pool bars

The Deck is poolside bar under the umbrellas and coconut palms. It tends to be the local bar by day where you can order lunch at The Deck. The food is great the local fish with mango salad was the best.

Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort fitness center

Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort sport center

The staff at the beach sport hut are very helpful and friendly. You can rent kayaks, sailed the hobbycat and even take up windsurfing lesson. Diving course are also available.

Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort room

Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort room are in eight three storey blocks, four blocks either side of the main reception area

The rooms are of good quality but do not expect any sea-views from a Ocean facing room. The rooms are in 3-storey buildings which are a short walk away from the beach.

the rooms are spacious and clean

Superior Rooms are all located on the first and second floor, Deluxe Rooms are on the third floor. All rooms have a private terrace or balcony, the only difference is the price depending on the floor level.

Almost all of the rooms have views of the gardens and mangrove forest but not the beach or the sea. The hotel grounds are kept immaculate and the beach nice and tidy.

The room was cleaned not once but twice a day and the cleaning staff's attention to detail was second to none as they even prepared the bed for you in the evenings and changed the towels twice a day.

Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort Zen room
comfortable and more spacious

There are altogether 246 comfortable guest rooms, including 30 Zen rooms and 6 Executive suites Zen rooms (larger bathrooms with separate bath & Shower).

Make sure you ask for the Ocean Facing Premium Rooms that offer the ocean view across the mangrove landscape and swimming pool although the rooms are not so near to the sea to hear the sound of the waves.

Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort may offer Starwood Preferred Guests platinum member upgrades to Building E, which has considerably better views and easier access to the main lobby and restaurant.

Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort Service Standard

Check-in to Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort was stress free. We were very impressed with the warmth and hospitality, the polite and friendly room maids and their charming and smiling staff welcoming you every morning at breakfast.

However the true measure of a hotel is how they react when things get a little sticky. As the Bangkok airports were closed during the 8 day protests, Sheraton Krabi staff were very helpful and doing their best in keeping stranded travelers updated. The management even gave stranded travelers steeply discounted room rate including food.

Worth complimenting are Vicki and the Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort staff on how well they've handled this situation.

 

 

How much for a Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort room?

Depending on what type of room you stay

  • Average room rate USD 260 onwards per night for Superior
  • Average room rate USD 272 onwards per night for Deluxe
  • Average room rate USD 293 onwards per night for Ocean Facing Premium
  • Average room rate USD 465 onwards per night for Executive Suite

Biggest gripe:

  • lots of mosquitos as the resort is built over a mangrove forest

Thumbs Up:

  • greeted at the Sheraton with cool drinks and refreshing scented towels upon arrival
  • golf buggy ride to your room

Special tips:

  • For your wedding anniversary, the management can make special arrangements such as rose petals on the bed and bottle of champagne
  • The shuttle bus service from the hotel to Ao Nang is good as the bus times are regular and cheaper than getting a taxi
  • The hotel charges more if you book directly to them, so try to go outside and check out travel agencies out there, they can give you much discount at the same tour (the same tour operator) that the hotel offers
  • a walk on the beach by sunset is highly recommended; the views of the sunsets from this area of the resort are spectacular - 6.00pm each evening
  • try to avoid Block A,B,C and D. Opt for Block E,F,G and J which have an open garden view.

Is Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort worth paying?

Perfect for those who want to enjoy a relaxing and romantic getaway. For those who like to spend around their time in the resort vicinity and a lot of time relaxing around the pool.

Everything from service, rooms, hotel are just perfect. Comfortable and plentiful sunloungers on the beach and the pool area means you never feel crowded.

Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort deserves the premium price that you are paying in exchange for the tranquility and calmness of the surroundings.
