Good Morning, Friends,
With almost 20 inches of fresh powder outside our front door, I woke up wishing I could be immediately transported back to the beautiful beaches of Krabi, Thailand. In Krabi, we were rarely without fruity beverage in hand and wore little more than swimsuits for almost five days straight..... ahhhhhh #takemeback
Jonny and I kept trying to describe how we felt while we were in Krabi and at the Centara Grand Resort, but the only adjective we could come up with was, "magical". It was the most stunningly beautiful, relaxing, yet fun and perfect place that either of us have ever been to.... simply magical.
Jonny and I witnessed the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets while we were in there. One happened to be while enjoying my birthday dinner beach side - it was incredible. We fell in love with Krabi it made our bucket list trip almost heavenly.
- Accomodations: Grand Centara Beach Resort and Villas
- Travel tips:
- We loooved our hotel - so that would be my first tip, stay there! Staff was incredible and the hotel was beyond beautiful and pretty much set in a monkey forrest. If you stay there, opt for "The Club", it includes a continental breakfast, afternoon snack (which is really lunch), happy hour (could be dinner), and evening cordials for $28 pp per day. The sweet staff overheard it was my birthday and brought me a giant cake and played "happy birthday" on the over head speakers as we were leaving. They definitely left a wonderful impression.
- Rent a private long tail boat for the day. For about $30 USD we had a captain and first mate and visited 6 of the neighboring islands around Krabi. It was so fun exploring the islands and snorkeling the clear blue waters on our own time.
- Hike the Monkey Trail into town. There is a short, but beautiful hike out of the resort into town called the Monkey Trail. We never saw any monkeys on the monkey trail (tons at the hotel), but found a fun swing and loved visiting the cute town.
Hope you are all staying safe and warm today! Can't wait to hear more about your travel plans. I love getting all of your emails about your fun trips!
