As mentioned in my previous post, the kind folks at ICON and the Sofitel group hosted the hubby and me for 2 nights at Sofitel Krabi. We extended a few more nights out of our own moolah.
After the lovely time in Bangkok, where we shopped and ate to our hearts' content, we took a flight to Krabi. It was our first time to Krabi. Most of the times, we usually visit Phuket instead.
Some info about Krabi:
Krabi is one of the southern provinces of Thailand, at the shore of the emerald of the Andaman Sea. Dramatic limestone cliffs veil the wonders of ancient sea cave. Dense mangroves give way to waterfalls touched by the warmth of the sun. Most notable of Krabi are the solitary limestone hills, both on the land and in the sea as islands such as Phi Phi Island, Chicken Island, Hong Island, and other amazing unseen islands which are well-know around the world.
Friends all told me that Krabi was more laid back and perfect for honeymooners We thought it would be a welcome change especially after the hustle and bustle of Bangkok. We checked into Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra Golf & Spa shortly after we arrived.
Sofitel Krabi is located 40 minutes away from the airport and the journey was rather smooth without any hiccups.
The hotel is decorated in timeless French colonial style, all rooms and suites have a spacious bathroom, imported French bath products. We spotted Hermes products! o.O
