Discover hotels and villas with private pools in Krabi, Thailand
Not so long ago, the only way to get to Krabi was via Phuket. Back then, off-the-beaten-track backpackers used this gorgeous, mountain-flanked coastal strip as their playground, drawn by its snorkel-clear waters, seriously-white-sand beaches and astonishing karst cliffs (which they climbed for sport). Since the airport opened, however, Krabi’s been gradually evolving. New hotels mean places for Prada-packing mojito-sippers to rest their tired Manolo-shod soles in style and comfort. Compared to other hotspots like Samui and Phuket, though, Krabi’s still relatively underdeveloped, which is perfect if all you want is some quality time, barefoot, in paradise.
