Beachfront and seaview resorts in Krabi

We are always asked about rooms with a view and actually, surprisingly few hotels and resorts in mainland Krabi offer rooms with ocean views, and those that do often only have a partial glimpse, rather than an inspiring panorama. Nonetheless, we have listed all of them below.

These Krabi sea view hotels have been further classified according to whether they offer direct beach access, i.e. if the resort is located directly on the sand, with no road to cross in-between. The very few resorts on the mainland that offer this quieter, traffic-free location are marked with a palm tree ?.

All the links will take you to the hotel’s information page on, where you can see more pictures, read reviews about the rooms and location, and – of course – make a booking. If you do so, we should receive a small percentage of the commission earned by, at no cost to you. This is how we fund the site, so thank you for your support!

If direct beach access is important to you, you will also find a good choice of hotels and resorts right next to the sand in both Koh Lanta and the Phi Phi Islands, as well as on Koh Jum and Ko Ngai.

Beachfront hotels in Ao Nang

These hotels are located along the main beachfront road, which means you can see the sea as soon as you step outside. The majority of the rooms inside, however, are non sea view; though some hotels do have a premium category of seaview rooms. Note that these are usually partial sea views as there are tall palm trees, and various electric cables that block the horizon. Krabi Resort has a unique position both on the road, and with grounds backing on to the beach.

Hotels and resorts with seaview rooms on the Railay peninsula

There is no traffic in Railay, other than the constant longtail boats, and most hotels are located on, or not far from the sand. However, only a handful have rooms with sea views – it is usually the restaurant and pool that have the direct views of the beach.
In Railay West, all four beachfront resorts have a few rooms with seaview:
?? Railay Bay Resort and Spa
?? Railay Village Resort and Spa
?? Sand Sea Resort
?? Railei Beach Club (private houses – book direct only)
On the east side of Railay, there is no real beach, but some hotels have sea view rooms:
? Sunrise Tropical Resort
? Diamond Cave Resort
? Anyavee Railay Resort
? Railay Great View Resort
No hotels in Tonsai Bay have rooms with sea views.
?? Centara Grand Krabi Beach Resort in Ao Pai Plong (between Tonsai and Ao Nang) has all sea-facing rooms directly on the sand, and, like the rest of Railay, has no road access.

Beachfront & seaview hotels in Klong Muang and Tubkaek

The majority of hotels in both Klong Muang and Tupkaek are “absolute beachfront”, and the absence of longtail boat traffic makes them incredibly peaceful.
