The next part of my trip to Krabi was probably the most memorable. The resort we stayed in Krabi, Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas, is accessible only by boat as it is completely surrounded by huge limestone cliffs. When you arrive by boat it looks like a secluded oceanfront hotel in the middle of the jungle, absolutely stunning and so different from anywhere I’ve ever stayed. From there, you can grab a long tail boat to go to the other beaches around Krabi. We loved Phra Nang Beach & Railey beach, they are pictured below with the random cliff shooting out of the beach water. You can actually swim up to this cliff and there is a small area with sand that makes you feel like you are stranded in the most beautiful deserted mini island. The views here are nothing short of spectacular, as were the views from our balcony. Many people take day trips from Phuket to see these beaches as they are continuously voted the most beautiful beaches in the world, but I decided a day tour wasn’t enough and stayed 3 nights nestled away beneath the trees.
As most of you saw on my social media, I had a very remarkable morning one of the days. After going on a morning run and feeding a banana to a monkey hiding beyond the trees, we arrived to our villa to see an entire colony of monkeys waiting in our patio. We went inside the villa and the monkeys were hanging from the door knobs trying to break it! It was the coolest yet slightly frightening experience ever. Of course, I finally decided to make friends with the monkeys and walked outside with them (my boyfriend slammed the door behind me) haha. Eventually when some of the monkeys left and everything settled down a bit, we walked out and fed them and had them jumping all over us. One of the monkeys sat on my boyfriends shoulder literally just chilling and didn’t want to come down. Once we came back inside, we sat there just looking at a family of monkeys who adopted our balcony as a home and all cuddled together (pictured below), it was so beautiful. After my monkey adventure I found out they can actually be quite dangerous, so please, use caution when playing with monkeys. A scratch or bite will you give you rabies, which have no symptoms and are fatal. Monkeys are funny & cute and hard to ignore, but be smart with your encounter. Don’t tease the monkeys or feed one when theres many around or it might cause them to get aggressive.
Hope you all enjoy and this post inspires you to take a little getaway beneath the trees!
