Family Honeymoon’s hotel of choice:

Holiday Inn Resort Krabi Ao Nang Beach

You know you are in a child friendly resort when your child is handed a sticker book upon check courtesy of Holiday Inn. My travel story.

For IHG loyal ones, we all know that in Holiday Inn establishments, kids stay and dine for free, all day.

We chose a room with pool access and enjoy the  four water slides, dry playground/ trampoline areas. Also, the resort has a pool bar as well, a win-win situation for both adults and kids!

The kids Club is impressive, with around the clock activities for the kids, Arts and Crafts, playground area with ball pit and some activities by the pool side. Check with them daily. Your kiddos will never be bored at this resort. There is a nice pool bar for everyone to unwind with a drink or two. Cheers!

The icing on the cake is a FREE kids’ party on Saturdays! Free snacks, games, mascot appearances as well. It’s like a birthday party, just for hotel guests. Well done, Holiday Inn!

 

 

5 Family Honeymoon Picks  for Krabi

 1. Hop onto a long-tail boat and visit Railay Beach

krabi4

Railay beach is  on every list of top 50 beaches in the world and it lives up to its reputation. Accessible only by long-tail boats, it feels like you are travelling to a private island.

The boat ride there is an adventure in itself. The long tail boat ride, a type of boat native to South East Asia, docks right outside Holiday Inn. Our trip to Railay Beach was smooth and our 3 year old loved it. The return journey was abit rocky but it was like a mild rollercoaster ( Keep life jackets handy!)

It was also at this moment that my toddler grabbed my phone and dropped it smack into the above man-made turtle pond. Luckily, a quick visit to the convenience store later for a bag of dry rice saved it. Left my phone in the bag of uncooked rice overnight and phone was good as new the next day.

There are a few small cafes at Railay Beach front and I had the best milkshake of my life there. Oreo Milkshake. The thai food is authentic, making it an ideal lunch spot. The loo there is rather worn down ( not recommended for a shower) but you can probably grab a coffee or juice at the one hotel there and use their restroom instead thereafter.

 

2. Walk down to the Ao Nang town nearby 

Along the way, you will see more long tail boats docked, lovely bridges and a host of food and massage places. Do try their banana and chocolate pancakes, sold on carts in the town. Or a pinacolada served in a coconut. If your child is older, massages are cheap and aplenty.

 

3. Visit Emerald Pool and The Hot Springs

This one is 1.5 hr drive away. Immerse yourself in the mineral rich water of the springs near Klong Thom. After that, it’s a short drive to a much awaited cool and refreshing Emerald Pool to escape the heat.

4. Visit Krabi Town’s Weekend Night Market

 

This Night Market is a must! Food stalls selling just about every type of food. I loved the lady above with her huge variety of delectable brownies. Hit the spot. Also there will be a live band, rows and rows of stalls selling souvenirs, T-shirts and the like. The best part is we chanced upon a 30 Baht ( $1+) kids batik painting corner where kids are given paints and a batik and encouraged to unleash their creativity. Smack in the middle of a bustling night market! How fun is that! My little one was hard at work, intensely concentrating on her painting session as the night market stayed abuzz with activity all around these mini Picassos.

 

5. Krabi Kart Speedway

High Way No. 4034 | Sai ThaiKrabi Town 81000, Thailand

A fun place to enjoy some Go Karting. Double seats are available for your little ones and a paintball place is next door. Good fun for the whole family. Ready, Steady, Go!

 

Wishing you a lovely family honeymoon in Krabi!
