Centara Ao Nang Resort & Spa Krabi 

Bring the whole clan

This modern family-focused resort sits on a peaceful part of beautiful Ao Nang Beach.

The Centara fronts soft golden sands at the quieter end of idyllic Ao Nang Beach. Its low-rise design leaves guests surrounded by Krabi’s towering jungle-clad cliffs and you’re just steps from the warm turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea. The large lagoon-style main pool is the hub of this laidback tropical resort, while the outside activities are all about exploring the natural landscape.

Why we love Centara Ao Nang Resort & Spa Krabi

  • It has an ideal location at the quieter end of Ao Nang Beach, but only a short stroll away from lots of eateries and shops

  • There are family suites with bunk beds for the children, a great kids’ and teens’ club and a pool with waterslides

  • Eating is a refreshingly relaxed affair, whether you’re grazing on tapas at Sands Beach Club or Thai tastes in the main restaurant

  • When you’re in the mood for adventure, you can island-hop by long-tail boat or trek the rainforest to spot monkeys
