Sofitel Phokeethra Krabi

There is no place to soak in sunny skies and beautiful, clean beaches than Krabi where there are huge archipelago of islands for you to hop around. Known for the gorgeous beaches, Krabi has long been a favorite destination for beach-lovers worldwide.

One of the more convenient and comfortable access to the beach would be Sofitel Phokeethra Krabi, a resort hotel within steps from the sea. The hotel is within vicinity of boat trip rentals, various massage parlors and local delights. In fact, the road to access these is a straight road down near the pool of the hotel. It is a prime location for people who want a getaway from the bustling cities.

The hotel also boasts a private beach at your perusal. The private beach is definitely not as impressive as those that you can go via the rented boat rides but it is nonetheless still an option for the laid-back people.

The option of dining will bring you to a few restaurants located in the hotel itself, which covers a wide range of Italian, Thai and even Indian cuisine. On some nights, there are even barbecue events located by the pool.

The swimming pool is one of the biggest in South-East Asia as claimed, and it has a poolside bar that is great for chilling with friends or other tourists. It has the infinity pool concept and also goes around the resort, although there is a private section reserved for people in the higher-tiered luxury suites.

A homely feel - the room uses largely wooden furniture and flooring for the outdoor and nature risque. The is a balcony that oversees the pool, beach or forests. Toilets come with a bathtub and toiletries used are either L'Occitane or Lanvin, depending on the type of accommodation you opt for.

Unwind with aroma and florals at Le Spa, which is a must-try when you visit any Sofitel hospitality. The spa at Sofitel Phokeethra Krabi uses renowned French luxe brand L'Occitane for most of their massages. We tried out an aroma massage and immediately fell into deep sleep within minutes.

After which, take a soak in their outdoor jacuzzi which promises to end the whole massage off on the right note. Aromatic bath salt and fresh flower petals (from their back garden) are thrown into the tub to ensure you enjoy your experience to the very best.

If you have kids tagging along on your holiday, you'll be glad to know that one of the services available at Sofitel Phokeethra Krabi will be a "childcare" which has well-trained staffs taking care of your kids while you are at the beach, taking a swim at the pool, at a golf game, or even at Le Spa.

The childcare ensures that your kid will be taken care of so that you'll be at an ease of mind while enjoying your time alone. This includes a playground, activities such as coloring and painting, as well as a sleep room. And of course, supervision at all times.

Besides the basic amenities such as the pool and gym, Sofitel Phokeethra Krabi offers a range of water sports available such as kayaking, windsurfing or even chartered boats to Hong Island, which is about 15 minutes boat ride away from their private beach. There, we snorkeled in the very clear waters and got to swim with corals and fishes.

That being said, Sofitel Phokeethra Krabi is a place that we will be back for again should we plan the next trip to Krabi. If being in the sun, sea and sand is your kind of holiday, then this resort hotel will definitely be something that will not disappoint.
