The Dusit Thani Krabi Hotel is a large american style resort with very little “thai” characteristics. The travel time from/to airport is about 40 min by hotel limousine. Rooms and suites are very modern, simply decorated, comfy and clean. Staff at the hotel is very attentive and curteous.

Location is wonderful as the beach is very long, clean and quiet. There are no motorsports, beach massages, or sellers of any kind which makes it a perfect place to relax.

The hotel offers 3 Restaurants. Mangosteen which offers thai and international food, Gecko’s which is italian and Malati with indian and thai food. I loved the atmosphere of Gecko’s as it is al fresco and offers authentic italian pizza, pasta and much more and the price of the food is very reasonable. Mangosteen’s is also nice and giving you a wide choice, including taking care of special requests.  I found the quality of the food served at the hotel very good and all meals were delicious. Unfortunalely most guests eat outside the hotel which is a pity. I found mostly empty restaurants in the evening even though the hotel was nearly fully booked.

There are 2 pools with sun-loungers, a huge green garden area and of course the lovely sandy beach. There is a kid’s club and a ice cream parlour available at the pool areas as well. There is no free water oder cold towel service provided. Plenty of beach towels are available for use.

The gym is open 24 hours which is very convenient for international travelers with jetlag. Breakfast at Mangosteen offers a very wide choice including some special features for children.

We stayed in club room suite which is well worth a little extra money. In the very stylish club lounge you can enjoy separate check-in/check out, all day drinks, afternoon snacks, and a generous happy hour buffet with cold and hot snacks and free cocktails and wine every night.

The martini bar offers a daily happy hour and live music entertainment nightly.

Free WIFI is available in the rooms and all hotel areas. The Dusit Thani in Krabi is a good choice for travelers who appreciate a large international resort with a wonderful clean long beach.





I did about 30 flight legs on Bangkok Airways in the last few years. The airline calls itself Asia’s Boutique Airline with a focus on quality domestic and international air travel.

Every passenger is entitled to visit Bangkok Airways own lounges where coffee, tee, water and orange juice is offered for free. Wifi is also available for everybody. Inflight service still consists of usually a small hot meal and a sweet item which is not to be found on any other thai carrier. Soft drinks are also offered. Crews are friendly, well trained and safety conscious.

If you are flying out of Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok I highly recommend web check-in as lines can be rather long (especially early morning). A good solid product which has not changed much over the years and still the airline of my choice for thai domestic and regional destinations.
