A look back at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel in Krabi, Thailand
On our recent trips to Thailand, we spent a week at the beautiful Holiday Inn Express Krabi Ao Nang Beach. A superb upper class resort ideally located across from popular Ao Nang Beach in Krabi, Thailand.
We have always enjoyed staying at the Holiday Inn Brand over the years and this hotel lived up to its name and did not disappoint!
Rating of our stay at the Holiday Inn Resort Krabi Ao Nang Beach
Below is a look at our most recent week long stay and what to expect when you check in to this excellent, fully-featured resort hotel. A wonderful family-oriented resort hotel ideally located in the heart of Krabi's tourist zone and beaches.
What we really liked is that the hotel is only a short alley away from the main road which results in very little traffic noise.
Deluxe King Room with Garden and Pool View
Our Deluxe King Guest Room was upstairs with a beautiful view of the garden and pool. We even had a slight view of the ocean across the street from our balcony! A perfect room with all the modern amenities you would expect from this class of hotel.
We were also warmly greeted with a friendly note and bed decoration waiting for us when we checked into our room. 🙂
Our guest room was immaculate and the king bed was very comfortable. A pleasure to have a bed that isn't worn out and sagging! All beds have a down comforter, white linen and firm or soft pillows.
The room was furnished with a comfortable chair and desk, which makes it ideal for business travelers as well. There is free WiFi throughout the room and throughout the hotel.
The WiFi internet connection was excellent throughout our week long stay with no interruptions.
The bathroom in the guest room was spotless and well stocked with the usual toiletries. There was also a nice walk in shower.
All rooms in the hotel have been designed in a modern Sino-Portuguese look, reflecting the history and natural beauty of southern Thailand. Each room has a lovely balcony with a view of the garden or the mangroves.
The entire grounds of the resort were immaculate and beautifully maintained by garden staff!
Guest room properties
Some of the standard features to be expected include:
Free high-speed WiFi;
In the room safe;
2 bottles of water daily;
Hi definition television;
Hard & soft pillows;
Wireless Internet service is free for all IHG® Rewards Club members.
Free breakfast buffet included
All guests at the Holiday Inn are served a free daily breakfast buffet, which is located just off the main lobby. We were very impressed with the wide variety of breakfast options. The huge selection is sure to please almost everyone.
From eggs, pastries, fresh fruit and much more, you definitely won't leave the buffet hungry!
There's also the Grab & Go option for those in a hurry. Room service is also available from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm.
Swimming pool and fitness center
The outdoor pool is huge and immaculately clean! Definitely a bonus and attraction for families and those who prefer a swimming pool over the sea. Fresh bath towels are available daily so you don't have to bring your own when spending time by the pool.
I really like that the hotel tries to implement guests and advise them not to reserve lounge chairs with their towels and other items. They have small cards tied to each lounge chair by the pool as a reminder which is great. This is definitely one of my travel pets when I see people do this and leave the lounge chairs empty for hours.
My only suggestion would be to leave a secondary reminder card with the guest upon check-in.
What I really like about Holiday Inn Express hotels is the self-laundry service. A great long stay option so you can pack even easier! 🙂
1 meeting room for business and travel representatives is available on request. The hotel also has an on-site business center.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to both business and leisure travelers staying in Krabi.
My wife and I had a wonderful stay during our week in this part of beautiful Thailand.
My recommendation to the hotel would be to add a dresser in the room for clothes. We were surprised not to see one in such a large room. A patio door to the balcony would also have been very helpful to keep the insects and mosquitoes away in the evening hours.
We always enjoy not using the air conditioning in the early hours of the morning and evening. 🙂
