If you’re planning on visiting Thailand through the southern haven of Krabi, you’ve probably heard of the Sandbox scheme being implemented right now. Here are the best luxury hotels in Krabi you could consider.
The Sandbox scheme enables inbound tourists to stay in qualified hotels for at least 7 days, and unlike with Alternative Quarantine, they get to leave the hotel, too. These 4 hotels don’t only provide a reliably hygienic environment, but they also boast indulgent packages for a long stay. Whether it’s for this Sandbox scheme or for a seaside getaway, here’s where you could stay in Krabi the next time you visit.
