BlueSotel Krabi: Hotel Review

Ao Nang, Krabi is a beautiful little beach town on Thailand’s coast and is probably my favorite stop on my Thailand tour thus far. The beaches and limestone peaks are gorgeous, there’s SO much to do and see (think island hopping & temple hikes), and the prices are incredibly inexpensive when it comes to accommodation, restaurants, and activities.

The prices here are actually so affordable that I’ve been living at the BlueSotel Krabi, a 4-star hotel for 2 weeks (and still have 1 week left!). This new and modern hotel located in the heart of Ao Nang, is priced at $50/night, so I only pay $25/night after splitting the cost with my travel buddy/BF!

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Luxury travel on a budget is SO simple in Thailand!! Keep scrolling to see what I mean ๐Ÿ˜Š

  1. Hi,
    All really great and awesome traveling place. this article is great writing and
    nice picture quality.
    best BlueSotel Krabi, a 4-star hotel in Thailand…

  2. I have read all your posts regarding Thailand and I am looking forward all the others coming ๐Ÿ™‚ I am going to T. for almost 3 weeks next month and I am now planning the places to see. Taking into consideration all your experiences I am making a huge plan. I can’t wait. I am also going with my man, so I am happy that we are safe and not the only one travelling without a huge group of friends. We have tickets to and from Bangkok so I need to schedule everything nice to see as much as possible and still to have fun and rest on the beaches !
    I wish you all the best ! Have a great time there and do not hesitate to share more pictures and info ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Gosia! I’m so happy for you, you’re going to LOVE Thailand!! Especially traveling here with your boyfriend ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll be posting many many more posts on Thailand so keep checking back! Based on everywhere I’ve been so far, I really recommend spending at least a weekend in Bangkok, at least 3 or 4 nights in Koh Tao (beautiful quaint island with the best diving & untouched nature), at least 4 nights in Ao Nang, Krabi (coastal beach town surrounded my limestone mountains, amazing beaches, and lots of nearby island hopping to be done), 3 nights on Koh Phi Phi islands (probably the most famous/beautiful Thai island with Maya Bay & Monkey Beach), and then 3 nights in Chiang Mai for their elephant sanctuaries and temples (I haven’t been here yet so I’m not quite sure if the timing is right on the amount of time you should spend here). Hope those suggestions help!! You can obviously tailor it how you prefer based on your preferences, but that should give you a good guideline to follow ๐Ÿ™‚ Have the best time and feel free to contact me with anymore questions you have!!

    I was wondering how much the whole thing cost in total? Like the hotel, some activities, and the travelling part. I am also wondering what plane you use and the cost and what your job is????
    And by the way, I love your blog?

    1. Hi Angeline!

      It’s hard to determine the total price, but here are some typical prices so you get an idea:

      Hotel- $525 for 3 weeks (21 nights) after splitting the cost with my BF
      Food- Typically $2-5 per meal and drinks typically $1-3 dollars depending on the type of liquor (beer always the cheapest, cocktails and wine more expensive)
      Personal driver from Phuket to Krabi- $60 but $30 after splitting the cost. You can take a bus though for under $10!
      3 separate days of island hopping (5 different islands and beaches)- As low as $43 total and can be lower if you’re traveling with a bigger group than a pair. The only activity I really splurged on was a $50 sunset/snorkel cruise which I really recommend. To see more details on island hopping in Krabi check out the post I wrote about it!
      Other transportation fees- We typically only walked everywhere because Ao Nang is small! But one drunk night we took a tuk tuk for only $2 haha!

      For the flight, we almost always used AirAsia because it tended to have the cheapest prices. We flew from Krabi to Chiang Mai for $100, if you’re lucky you could get cheaper because domestic flights in Thailand can sell as low as $40 sometimes!

      My job is now travel blogging, with a part time side job of being a social media manager (that I work 6-10 hours a week depending on how much more money I need usually).

      So happy you like my blog!! Hope all that info helps ๐Ÿ™‚
