The Thai island of Krabi is calling us back with the opening of Banyan Tree’s luxe new beachfront hotel.
Powdery sands and sapphire seas bring the vacay vibes on Tubkaek Beach (a secluded treasure on the south-west coast) while the brand’s signature hospitality sets the holiday bar high. Nestled into the lush hillside, Banyan Tree Krabi is positioned opposite a dozen of the region’s iconic limestone karsts which jut from the Andaman Sea in postcard-perfect form.
All gorgeous, right (especially with the airport half an hour away)? But two words really sealed the deal for us: private pools. Yep, each of the 72 suites and villas has one, alongside fresh, modern, and completely stunning interiors which take cues from the coastal locale with a nod to Thai traditions. There’s also an infinity pool, rainforest-themed spa (very Banyan Tree), a stylish selection of bars and dining options, and a private wedding chapel.
Did someone say, surprise elopement?
Couples will love: a private candlelit beach picnic — toes in the sand, sea breeze in your hair, and stars sparkling above as you enjoy a memorable menu of Thai delicacies. Swoon.
