Whilst Krabi is not as overdeveloped as some other beach destinations, it does offer a great range of hotels with something to suit all budgets. Here is a list of great resorts in Krabi that have proved popular with gay tourists, divided by area:
Ao Nang - popular tourist spot and a great base from which to explore Krabi.
Railay Beach - famous area for rock climbing and sightseeing.
other areas – resorts in surrounding areas of Krabi that demand consideration.
Formally “Ao Phra Nang” (Princess Bay), Ao Nang is the most “Westernized” beach in Krabi and was originally a hotspot for backpackers. The beach is not quite as scenic as Railay, but there is a good range of accommodation, restaurants and tour agencies, making it a good base for exploring Krabi.

If you prefer to stay close to the coastal resort town of Ao Nang, with its great choice of restaurants and (straight) bars, then consider the very affordable Ao Nang Priceville Resort and Spa. The resort is just a few steps from the beach, and the rooms are spacious and beautifully furnished in a contemporary Thai style. The hotel has its own private pool surrounded by mature tropical landscaped gardens.

The new AoNang Cliff Beach Resort is set on a hill side off the AoNang’s main street – just a few minutes’ walk from Ao Nang Beach. The raised position means that the pool, sun deck and many of the guest rooms have great views of the cliffs and ocean beyond.
The rooms are stylish, modern and feature a LCD TV, mini bar and tea & coffee making facilities. The resort has elevators, a gym, spa and a restaurant that serves pretty good seafood and Thai cuisine. Having said that, you have a huge choice just moments from the hotel.

The Rayavadee in Krabi is an astonishingly beautiful resort. It really is difficult to describe the natural environment that surrounds this resort adequately in words. You need to see the pictures for yourself.
The accommodation is luxurious. The two-story traditionally-styled private pavilions have all the amenities you would expect. Expensive, but if you are planning a special romantic holiday for two then the gay-friendly Rayavadee demands consideration.

So we tempted you with Rayavadee and then you checked the price and nearly had a heart attack? Don’t worry. Railay Bay Resort is next door to the Rayavadee and much more affordable. The traditionally styled bungalows are nicely done and the view from the swimming pool is just as spectacular. Management and staff offer a warm and friendly welcome to gay travellers.
Unlike the Rayavadee which has its own private motor launches, the only way to reach this resort is by longboat from Ao Nang. This is quite a simple process. Take a taxi from Krabi Airport to Ao Nang Beach and then ask one of the many longboat men to take you to the resort (journey time is less than 10 minutes). For the less adventurous, contact the resort in advance to arrange accompanied transfers.

Located close to the famous Railay Beach, the Bhu Nga Thani Resort & Spa offers luxurious rooms and villas each with a private balcony, LCD TV, DVD player, free movie channels, free WiFi and tea & coffee making facilities. The bathrooms are spacious with separate shower and bathtub. The hotel has a fabulous swimming pool and a sun terrace with ocean views. Railay Beach is a 5-minute walk from the resort. Great, friendly service.
A wide range of accommodations are located in Krabi town and nearby beaches. While the water is not best for swimming, the area offers a more lad-back environment where visitors can enjoy many interesting activities such as kayaking, fishing and exploring the local village.

The first thing to point out is that The Tubkaak is an ‘away from it all’ resort (albeit with some interesting local exploration options). The nearest town of any size is around 30 minutes by car and the resort itself is relatively small. But it is beautiful. The views over the Ko Hong Archipelago are picture perfect. Watching the sunset over the distant islands whilst sipping a cocktail is magical. We can testify that both staff and management offer an exceptionally warm welcome to gay guests. This is a place to bring a boyfriend and a couple of good books.

The Islanda Eco Village Resort is something special. This beach-front resort offers gay guests the warmest welcome to its secluded, natural, unspoiled location on Klang Island. There are 30 creatively designed Thai village-style houses, each with free WiFi, open-air bathroom, flat screen satellite TV and DVD player. Guests can enjoy swimming in the outdoor infinity-edge pool, go kayaking, take leisurely classes on batik painting, go fishing and rice farming with the local village people, or simply relax quietly at the resort. The onsite Sea Breeze Restaurant serves tasty Thai and international dishes with optional in-room dining.
The resort is a convenient 5-minute boat ride from central Krabi and about 15 km from Krabi International Airport. Chargeable transfers are provided. Islanda Eco Village is part of MarKrabi Collection, as is the Red Ginger Chic Resort in Ao Nang.
