Located on the Andaman coast on the picturesque province of Krabi, Southern Thailand, Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra Gold & Spa Resort is a luxurious oasis renowned for its timeless, colonial elegance and Thai hospitality. Having recently revamped their activity offering, guests of Sofitel Krabi can enjoy a variety of adventure activities designed to encourage exploration of the local area, including learning to sail either at the beautiful neighbouring islands or on the sun-soaked Sofitel Krabi beach during high tide.
An ideal destination for those looking for an active break at any age or experience level, children as young as 8-years-old and older guests alike can learn to sail like a professional with one of the resort’s seasoned guides from the Sofitel Krabi Water Sports team, where the constant wind and tidal waters make learning to sail easy for everyone. Guests can master the skill alone or try group sailing lessons for a different kind of fun with family and friends, with a maximum of 3 people able to learn at any one time. The sailing lessons aim to boost guests confidence, teach basic navigation skills and sailing techniques, as well as mooring and anchoring, so that travellers can return to sea at any time with the skills needed to sail like a pro.
Following a day of learning on the open water, Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra’s concierge can also organise private island tours for a slice of family adventure, on a speedboat trip to discover the natural beauty of nearby islands and hidden sandy beaches; including the beautiful Hong Island where explorer’s can snorkel or kayak through the lagoon surrounded by spectacular limestone rock cliffs, or try their hand at paddle boarding amongst the variety of colourful tropical fish.
After a day on the open water, travellers can take a swim in the resort’s lagoon-style swimming pool, the largest in Thailand, before practicing their swing on the 9-hole golf course, breaking a sweat in the fitness centre, on the running track or the tennis courts. A variety of gentle exercise classes are also offered daily, from Thai Chi to aerobics, to traditional Thai dance lessons.
