I booked 2rooms for my wife and I and for other family members. We checked in early and the hotel was flexible enough to accommodate that, but one of our rooms was not the class of room I paid for. I didn't realize this until the second day but the last thing I wanted to do at that point was pack up and move to a different room so I didn't mention it to management. The room was nonetheless nice, and the view was as beautiful as promised, and our maid tried very hard to take care of us. Our AC wasn't really up to the challenge of fighting the sweltering heat, so the only time the room cooled to a comfortable temperature was at night. The overall facility was comprehensive with beautiful pools, beach, gym, and restaurants. Our final experience at the resort was, unfortunately, unpleasant, though, as the hotel car we booked to take us to the airport (at more than twice the price of a local car) was quite late and we had to wait in extreme heat & humidity, By the time we left for the airport, we were overheated and foul-tempered. Despite this, we really enjoyed our vacation at the Centara and would probably go back, though probably not in May again as it was too hot and the hotel's facilities aren't really up to Krabi summertime heat.

I want to like the hotel but it needs upgrades and the staff needs training on treating guests, at least smile and not be indifferent. The hotel has the potential to 5 star, the location is great, the grounds are large and private. I had a view of the beach which was truthfully about a 30 second walk from my room. However, the air conditioning was extremely noisy, I had no hot water, the staff genuinely seemed disinterested in their guests, not rude but did not go out of their way to smile and be friendly, so un-Thai. The place was so empty it was creepy. No one was at the pool in the afternoon. The furniture was worn and dated. All in all I can't complain about the place, just a little TLC and staff training will really do the place justice.
The staff seemed a bit distracted at breakfast, but that was probably because there was no one there. Weak instant coffee too. Wonderful rooms. And we were hugely impressed by the free Christmas Eve buffet, which had everything. And suddenly the staff melted and were great... Fully recommend. Just a 10-minute walk from the beach and bars/shops/restaurants.

Had a great stay at the Phu Petra, really friendly and helpful staff, rooms very large and clean, nice pool area, food and drink reasonably priced, good free bus service into Ao Nang throughout the day and night. Excellent value hotel, would definitely recommend and would stay again.
This former fishing village in central Krabi Province still retains some traditional charm. A 10-minute boat ride takes travellers to Railay Beach for rock climbing and snorkeling. Other day trip options include island-hopping cruises to outer islands such as James Bond Island from The Man with the Golden Gun.
