[Accommodation] Mercure Krabi Deevana, Thailand


I just received the most awesome birthday gift ever! Million thanks to Nuffnang, DiGi Telco, Malindo Air, Mercure Krabi Deevana and Asia Web Direct, I've won a 3D2N paid beach getaway (inclusive of flight + accommodation with free breakfast and hotel transfer) to Krabi! I almost jump in joy when I read the message from DiGi Telco as I've never thought that I will be travelling to overseas so soon after Macau trip in June.

I know some of you must have seen my updates of Krabi trip in Instagram or Facebook (thanks to DiGi's unlimited data roaming with Dtac at RM32/day) and hoping to see more pictures of it, but today I will be posting about the hotel that I've stayed in Krabi, Mercure Krabi Deevana.


"Mercure Krabi Deevana offers chic accommodation in contemporary low-rise buildings located a short distance from Ao Nang beach. With 213 stylish rooms and suites, each with a private balcony, guests can enjoy the resort's excellent facilities and benefit from gracious and personalized service from the welcoming Mercure team. The brand new resort features an exceptional restaurant and bars, three large outdoor swimming pools, a kid's pool, a restful and rejuvenating spa, and outstanding meetings and events facilities. Conveniently located a 30 minute drive from Krabi International Airport and 20 minutes from Krabi Town, the Mercure Krabi Deevana is the ideal choice for leisure guests, as well as corporate meetings and incentive travellers."

Upon arrival, we were greeted by their staffs and they're all so helpful and friendly. The check-in process was quick and they always try to fulfill our requests (eg. king bed instead of two twin bed, any specific view from the room's balcony). Then she show us around the hotel while leading us to our room. Fyi, Mercure Krabi Deevana does provide free shuttle bus to Ao Nang beach (which you need to reserve at concierge beforehand) as it's not located by the beach but 10 minutes walking distance.




Library and Internet corner right beside the lobby filled with a wide range of books, local and international newspapers and magazines. DVDs can also be borrowed to watch in your own room too.


While Starling Lobby Lounge on the opposite. They do serve international snacks and beverages, with live music adds a little extra sparkle in the evenings. I've been wanted to try it out but we always walk back to hotel with bloated stomach at night.


Thailand is always famous for its traditional Thai massage, hence most of the hotels in Krabi have their in-house spa facilities.


Swan Spa offers an extensive menu of rejuvenating massage and body services, each created to aid relaxation and improve wellbeing. They feature 1 private twin room with a Jacuzzi and steam room (couples are welcome!), 2 private single rooms, and 3-bed rooms for foot massage and authentic Thai massage.


Further down here's the Kingfisher Restaurant, which is Mercure Krabi Deevana's signature restaurant offering Thai and International cuisine served in the open-sided or alfresco on the terrace, from buffet breakfast to extensive lunch and dinner menus.


We've never skipped the buffet breakfast at Kingfisher Restaurant during our stay especially when you have such amazing view of this even though we need to leave at 8:30AM for activities.


As I've mentioned, Mercure Krabi Deevana has three large swimming pools and a kid's pool and they all are looking amazing. With broad shade giving parasols and comfortable sun loungers at the poolside, it's definitely the perfect spot for a refreshing dip and relaxation throughout the day and early evening.


They do provide parking space for guests too, but you will need to email them for detailed information.


I must say they've done a good job on cleanliness of the hotel as I do not see any rubbish in the corridor, swimming pool or any other areas.


Tadah, here's our 33-square-metre superior room with a king size bed! Like the usual hotel rooms, it's equipped with bedside reading lamp, flat screen LCD TV with cable channels, IDD telephones with voicemail, Wi-Fi connection (they will provide you the Wi-Fi password upon check-in), coffee and tea making facilities, mini bar and safety deposit box.


No doubt it's really comfortable but the only thing that I dislike is they have two pillows only. I'm the type of person who like to sleep with many pillows around me hehe. :P


Bathroom which includes a refreshing rain shower and Mercure branded toiletries. Double thumbs up that the housekeeper will change everything new everyday (eg. towel, tissue paper and even toiletries) especially when I have a fetish about cleanliness. They do provide two bottled water for free everyday too.


Little did you know that the bathroom has a huge glass window that can see through which adds a little bit more of romance. Of course you can also pull down the curtain if you wish for more privacy.


Best part is they have a private balcony for each and every rooms, the perfect spot to chill at night in a more economy way. :P


Nice view from our room overlooking the swimming pool. If you're wondering, those are deluxe pool access rooms where you can slip off a private terrace and into the swimming pool. How good if we're staying in pool access room aww...


Normally we will seek for guesthouse or homestay when we travel to overseas (except with family) to save money and we don't really stay in the hotel most of the time. But this time was an exception as it was sponsored by Mercure Krabi Deevana and Asia Web Direct and I'm so glad that we have a pleasant stay here in Mercure Krabi Deevana. Being ranked at 7th out of 84 hotels in Ao Nang, Krabi by Tripadvisor, I gotta say they have outstanding customer service,  quick check-in and check-out processes, great location as it's walking distance from Ao Nang beach and other stores (free shuttle bus is also available) and well maintained cleanliness of the hotel.

Overall, I'm very satisfied during our stay here in Mercure Krabi Deevana, except that we're not staying in a pool access room. I will definitely come back here again because 3D2N is never enough for me! Stay tuned for more updates about Krabi. :)

Mercure Krabi Deevana is now called Deevana Plaza Krabi-Aonang and you may visit their website at www.deevanaplazakrabi.com. As I've browsed through their website, there are nothing much changes of the management or facilities but the name itself.
