Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra Golf and Spa Resort is situated near Ao Nang and provides excellent value for money, especially in the slow summer season.
The arrival experience at this hotel was very nice with a cold towel and drink before being escorted to the room.
I booked a classic room, but because of my A-Club Gold status, I was upgraded to a superior room. The room was nice for the price, but it’s a must to have the flatscreen Tv’s replaced.
In most 5-star brand hotels around the world, the food is overpriced, but in this hotel, the food had a fair price, 250 THB for lunch at the restaurant was fair, and the service was good. The hotel does provide great extras for guests such as complimentary boat tours to nearby islands every day, one of the largest swimming pools in the world makes this hotel a great choice for everyone, especially families. Another complimentary service is the internet in the business centre, but highly chargeable in the room. If you want shopping, this hotel offers shuttle service to Ao Nang for 100 THB per. person.
I met with the General Manager, Mr Lhuguenot and was impressed with the fact that he welcomes every guest. While The Pavilions Phuket and Andara’s staff language skills didn’t impress me, this one did. The staff here actually speaks better English and that in a hotel where the rates are many times lower.
Overall it’s a top score for the value, but it’s still far from the best hotels in the world, but who would expect it to be for less than 100 USD per. Night?. – It’s a highly recommended hotel for it value for money and especially for families.
My opinion: Good experience.
