Longbeach Villas

By Krabi Magazine Jan 4, 2014
An assuming turnoff along the busy road towards Khlong Muang, down a few kilometers of paved, lonely stretch without a house or business in sight, might turn away most adventurers, but those who dare will find themselves rewarded with the glory of Long Beach. Its name harbors no secrets yet it remains a hidden gem of unspoiled, practically uninhabited beach with panoramic views of the Andaman Sea.

As curious seekers of pristine beachfront in an ever crowded coffer of beachgoers, we found ourselves at Long Beach Villas, a small, tropical oriental boutique style resort situated right on the water. Ten luxury bungalows blend into the lush surrounding of foliage as they hug the sand and uncorrupted view of the water. The only soundtrack on this beach is the cadence of lapping waves. This is destination that draws

Many Kalinski, Resort Manager and also the expert engineer of some fine beachside cocktails, showed us around the property and its impossible-to-resist invitation to relax in the unblemished nature of Long Beach. After six years of living and working in the hospitality industry in Krabi, Mandy finds herself still awed by the beauty of this magical place. “The rustic landscape of the Andaman Sea gives me energy to pursue my dreams,” she tells us, and this couldn’t be more apparent with the stunning view that greets the villas every day.

Nature lovers will find that the resort enhances a visit to the perfectly lonely beach. “We want to offer a feeling of local Thai hospitality in a luxury setting, working in cohesion with the nature that surrounds Long Beach.” The on site restaurant offers local Thai dishes prepared by the resort’s talented chef. The intoxicating scent of his Massaman Curry alone is enough to melt your bones, which is perfect considering the lounge chairs sit on the sand just a mere few meters from the restaurant.

The beachfront bar boasts unique local ingredients incorporated into the exceptional cocktail menu on offer. The Melon Spice in particular is the perfect accouterment to an ocean view sunset.

All moderately priced rooms come standard with high quality linens and exotic décor, with one bungalow able to accommodate larger families into separate bedrooms and a private outdoor deck. Guests can enjoy complimentary breakfast every morning as well as free bike and kayak rentals. Content Content Content
