How To Get There

Krabi is located on the southwest coast of Thailand, around 800km from Bangkok and 170km from Phuket. It is easily accessible by road and sea, but luxury international travelers will probably fly into Krabi Airport from Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Qatar by Qatar Airlines, Hong Kong, and China. The Pavilions Anana Krabi is around a 30-minute drive from Krabi airport.

The style of the hotel is zen with lots of woods, natural oatmeal furnishings, and pine mixed with crisp white sheets. The main pool is stunning with dark tiles and is surrounded by lime green foliage. Overall the property feels contemporary and voguish.

Service & Facilities

The pool here is fantastic, surrounded by fruit trees and tropical foliage and edged with stylish loungers topped off with snow-white umbrellas. There’s also a swim-up bar that offers cocktails and mocktails as well as snacks.

Their peaceful wellness experience enriches your soul with a dedicated Himalayan Salt room and exclusive spa treatments. Restore your body with natural volcanic water pools, and reconnect with nature with unique, sustainable excursion experiences. The Asana Spa by The Pavilions is a paradise that provides a range of unique balanced hot and cold treatments in the Himalayan Salt Room, Spa treatment rooms, and Sauna & Steam with panoramic private views of the resort.

On-site activities include kickboxing and training in the in-house gym, Thai cooking courses cooked in the rooftop bar while watching the sun go down, and you can visit the local Elephant Sanitary, where you can clean and feed the elephants and walk alongside them freely.


Rooms here are stunning, modern, and spacious. The walls have a marble finish, and the wood flooring is classy. The stand-alone tub sits near the bed due to the open-plan design, so you can almost roll out of bed and into the bath. Bathrooms are modern and stylish, with huge walk-in showers. Balconies are large with comfy seating.

Food & Drink

The farm-to-table culinary experience at this resort is extraordinary. The hotel has its own one-acre Permaculture farm, which sustainably embraces Thai nature while yielding an abundance of fresh and organic food for the resort’s restaurants.

At ANANA Sky Lounge, you can indulge in 360-degree views of Krabi and Phang Nga Bay’s natural beauty for a magical sunset dining experience. Located at the highest point of The Pavilions Anana Krabi, ANANA Sky Lounge is the home of creative drinks, Tex Mex tapas, mellow grooves, and a sparkling sunset.

Cooper’s Specialty Kitchen is located in The Permaculture Farm and serves organic, nutritious, vegan food and drinks, with natural ingredients sourced from The Farm’s freshly harvested produce. To preserve the vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, they process the food as little as possible.

Finally, Streats offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner in air-con comfort with Thai and international cuisine.

The Pavilions Anana Krabi is good for your soul and our planet. Add in the great food and the great service, and you’ll discover that this unique eco-hotel really is a hidden gem.
