The spectacular setting of Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Krabi, with the verdant limestone mountains that have helped make this region famous, coupled with the local islands easily accessible from the shore, and the resort’s own private beach, make this an idyllic venue for meetings and incentives groups.
The resort has a number of meeting rooms, the largest of which is the Ao Nang Suite Main Auditorium, which can handle 200 guests theatre-style, and 185 for a reception.
The Royal Villa offers an exotic VIP location, with spectacular sunsets for private dinners and cocktails. The beach itself is also an attractive venue for receptions and coffee breaks.
Packages are available to suit the needs of events planners, including both the venue and added attractions.
These can include a coffee break on the beach, with fresh young coconuts being served, and a pre-dinner drinks reception on the beach, with the resort able to cater for up to 100 persons on these occasions. Pre-dinner drinks can also be served on a nearby island, with the resort able to cater for up to 25 persons.
For guests who are feeling stressed, an exercise or yoga session can be held on the beach at sunrise or sunset, and, of course, an invigorating swim in the clear ocean is perfect for toning anyone.
