Although Krabi doesn’t have the same wide selection of family friendly hotels as well-worn destinations like Phuket or Samui, it is improving all the time. Dozens of family friendly hotels in Ao Nang and Ko Lanta have comfy rooms and entertainment for families. To mirror that is a stunning environment with gorgeous beaches and access to lush national parks with emerald pools and plunging falls.
Most hotels in Krabi have a standard layout and are aimed at couples and general visitors. There is a growing number of apartments, boutique hotels and, indeed, family friendly hotels in Ao Nang, however. The only minus is you may have to head out a bit further to find these, such as to the Peace Laguna Resort, which is off the main road coming into Ao Nang.
There are other choices near here, as well as off towards the neighbouring resort area of Nopparat Thara Beach, such as the four-star Holiday Inn, with its kids’ pool and kids’ club. It is common for family friendly hotels in Krabi to have a splash pool connected to the main pool as it is at most larger hotels in the area.
These areas, together with the main town of Saladan on Ko Lanta, are the main bases for family friendly hotels in Krabi. They have the best resort feel and entertainment choices and are still well within trekking distance of beaches and activities .Ao Nang in particular has many choices, including the likes of the Phu Petra Resort, Nagapura and Vogue Resort & Spa, all well recommended for families. This area is the top place to be based for families, as well as couples, with its wide beach, boat rides and numerous places to eat, including Burger King.
Typically the layout and facilities of family friendly hotels in Krabi include rooms or connecting rooms designed for four people, possibly kitchen and dining facilities and cots on demand. WiFi internet is also typically standard in family friendly hotels, as in most other accommodation choices, in Krabi nowadays.
