Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra Golf and Spa Resort offers old-fashioned colonial luxury with Sofitel’s usual attention to detail and service. A huge swimming pool, international standard golf course, and beautiful spa are just some of the facilities that make this resort exceptional.
Why We Love It
♥ Thailand’s largest swimming pool – enough said
♥ Lovely colonial design
♥ The usual perks of staying with Sofitel, like excellent bespoke beds and attentive service
The location is a little bit removed from most of Krabi’s main sights, which can be a plus if you’re looking for an isolated resort experience. That said, many of Krabi’s most beautiful beaches are easily accessible for a day trip. Ao Nang, Krabi’s main transport and nightlife hub, is a short 20-minute drive from the hotel.
Style & Design
Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra Golf and Spa Resort stands out thanks to its elegant colonial style, which blends Victorian luxury elements like teak floors and romantic furniture with traditional Thai influences, such as temple-inspired roofs. The old-fashioned design gives you the impression of stepping back in time, which is perfect for travelers who want to get away from it all.
The resort is ideal for golfers, with the excellent 9-hole Phokeethra Golf Krabi course. However, that’s nothing compared to the swimming pool, which is actually Thailand’s largest at 7000msq. If you somehow manage to tire of swimming and golfing, there’s a high-quality gym with cardio machines and free weights.
Once you’re done exercising, unwind at the sauna or jacuzzi, or head to the spa for a pampering treatment with L’Occitane products. Wrap up your day with dinner at one of the resort’s many excellent restaurants: choose between Thai, Indian, Italian, and much more.
Each one of the 276 rooms is decorated in the hotel’s distinctive Victorian style for a classically elegant feel. All are spacious, and all come with a private furnished balcony – get one with an ocean view so you can watch the sunset without leaving your room. Sofitel’s signature MyBed guarantees a blissful night’s sleep, and high-quality amenities ensure you have everything you need.
Want proper luxury? Go for one of the private pool suites, which also come with Hermes products and Club Millésime access. This includes a highly personalized service from check-in to check-out, evening cocktails, and access to the exclusive lounge.
