Entering the gated grounds of The Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra Golf & Spa Resort is like stepping into a world of exclusive luxury. The vast acreage sprawls out in manicured lawns, giving the impression of an extravagant country club. This 5 star resort is situated just across the road from a quiet part of Klong Muang beach, and though you’ll have to walk a few steps across the street to get to the sand, the property boasts the largest swimming pool in Thailand.  At 7000 square metres, this lagoon-style pool features an adults-only area complete with Koh Poda, a poolside dining experience that also offers swim-up seating. There’s plenty of room for pool sports such as water polo or volleyball, as well as a kids’ area, complete with a mushroom-shaped mini-waterfall. If you’re not in the mood for a swim, the Sofitel offers a seemingly endless array of activities, including tennis courts, Thai cooking classes, fully equipped childrens’ activity centre and fitness centre, and of course, a 9-hole golf course right on the property. Activities such as yoga, kayaking, cycling, meditation and Thai boxing are scheduled throughout the day, with many offered as a complimentary service. If you’d rather seek adventure outside the resort, you can enjoy the close proximity to the best of Krabi, with excursions to all the famous attractions in the area. Guests can choose between 276 rooms and suites, and enjoy meals in any of four restaurants, including Italian, Indian and Thai food. With a high class, on-site spa offering brand name products and sumptuous treatments, the Sofitel is truly one of the top resorts in Krabi.
