Swimming is one of Krabi's most popular activities. Whether visitors choose to get wet at one of this Thai province's many beaches or at any of the almost 180 hotels with pools in Krabi, they're sure to have good time.
Nearly every Krabi hotel property, regardless of size or rating, includes at least one outdoor swimming pool. However, no pool is larger than the sprawling lagoon at Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra Golf and Spa Resort. This four and a half-star luxury resort stands next to Andaman Sea beaches at one end and lush tropical gardens on the other.
The outdoor swimming pool at the even more luxurious five-star Rayavadee resort is situated near the breathtakingly beautiful Krabi Marine National Park. Private deep soaking tubs are also found in all Rayavadee pool villas. Ao Nang's largest swimming pool is lined with tiles of turquoise blue and located at Krabi La Playa Resort.
The scenery surrounding the outdoor swimming pool at the Maritime Park And Spa Resort, conveniently located just 15 minutes by automobile from Krabi Airport, consists of the Krabi River and the area's famous limestone cliffs. Many of the outdoor swimming pools at Krabi Hotels are infinity pools, including the pool at Klang Island's Islanda Eco Village Resort.
Aonang Phutawan Resort is one of the few hotels with a pool in Krabi not located within easy walking distance of a beach, but a beach shuttle service is offered for an extra surcharge. Guests who do not wish to pay this extra beach transportation fee can swim or sunbathe at this two and a half-star resort's children's pool, spa tub, or standard outdoor pool.
There are also many cheaper and more modest hotels with pools in Krabi Town. The swimming pools at these smaller two and three-star properties may lack the poolside bars, sun loungers, and special children's pools found at many larger properties. However, the water is just as cool and the atmosphere just as relaxing as several more expensive hotels with pools.
