The Kingdom of Thailand on Saturday.
Owned by Thailand-based Asset World Corporation

Tree Krabi,” said the resort’s General Manager, Robert Sexton.
“You are never more than a few steps from a canal with quaint
wooden bridges or within earshot of fountains and waterfalls among
The Banyan Tree Krabi offers eight suite and villa types.
The most modest accommodation type, coming in at 99 sqm, is the
Deluxe Pool Suite which features a sumptuous double
bed, situated beneath a pitched hardwood ceiling and fan. A
private terrace, plunge pool, and jet pool surround the bedroom,
giving guests the feeling of being on a small island.
The largest is the majestic seven-bedroom Presidential Villa,
which sits directly in front of the beach. Guests can reserve the
villa as a three-bedroom unit or take an option to combine the
three-bedroom with the two adjoining 2-bedroom beachfront villas,
transforming it into a seven-bedroom wonderland of saltwater
pools, canals, and myriad balconies and terraces. Designed as a
retreat for multi-generational family vacations and intimate
wedding celebrations, the Presidential Villa commands a palatial
1,335 sqm as a seven-bedroom arrangement.
All suites and villas have private saltwater pools
and water features.
Mod-cons include a lavish bathtub and jet
pool, high-speed Internet, IPTV with multiple-device connectivity,
a full range of multi-lingual channels on the state-of-the-art flat
screen TVs, and a premium coffee machine.
“Our owners have held onto this piece of land since
2006, waiting for the right time to open the resort,” said Banyan
Tree Area General Manager Remko Kroesen.
“Now, with so many areas in Phuket and Koh Phi Phi perceived as
overcrowded and undoubtedly impacted from an environmental point
of view, the time is right to make this stunning resort at Tubkaek
Beach a sustainable reality.”
