When it comes to romantic getaways, a trip to a beach destination is always a favourite. And why wouldn't it be? There's nothing like a seaside retreat to get some rest and relaxation with the person you love. Credit: Giphy There are many destinations nearby for a great beach retreat, but a favourite spot has to be Krabi. This province on Thailand's southwestern coast is famous for its beaches, resorts, and also accessibility to beautiful nearby islands like Koh Yao Yai and Koh Phi Phi. But for Muslim travellers, it's also a great place to visit given its sizeable Muslim population, meaning halal food and facilities are pretty easy to find! So if you're planning a romantic getaway to Krabi, we've rounded up 8 affordable romantic accommodations in Krabi for the perfect seaside retreat for two. We've split our list between more mid-range resorts and also luxury resorts - so whether you're looking for a romantic stay that won't break the bank or looking to splurge on that unforgettable stay, we've got you covered! Most of these resorts are located in the Aonang area, within distance of the large Muslim community where halal food is easy to find. Where relevant, we've also highlighted if the resort is Muslim-run or provides halal food on its premises. Disclaimer: All nightly rates are based on a search in October 2019 for 2 adults. Prices may change during peak travel periods and over weekends. We recommend that you do a search before booking. Prices are generally lower if you book at least 3 months in advance, so start planning ahead to get the best deals! Mid-range resorts
1. Ao Nang Phu Pi Maan Resort and Spa
We had asked our readers on Instagram recently for recommendations on places to stay in Krabi, and Ao Nang Phu Pi Maan got an overwhelming amount of votes! But it's easy to see why - for one thing, the hotel is a Muslim-run hotel that caters to Muslim travellers needs, including fully halal food served at the resort, and no alcohol on the premises! There's also a mosque located just down the road.

Set in a setting with views of Krabi's mountains, it has all the facilities you could need. A variety of rooms are available catering to couples or even larger groups. If you're looking for something a little extra special, opt for one of the premium rooms or the premium villa.

The villas are far away enough from the busy town area, but close enough such that it's easy to pop out for meals or to the beach! The resort provides free shuttles to and from the beach every 2 hours starting from 9AM and ending around 10PM. #HHWT Tip: Do note that if returning from the beach, tuk-tuks can't access the villas given a steep slope leading up to the entrance, so you'll need to rely on taxis or Grab (i.e. cars) to get back right to the entrance.  In addition, you can also arrange for paid private shuttles with the hotel as another alternative. The hotel does not provide halal meals, however, there are many halal options near the main Aonang beach area which is just about a 5-minute drive away. Rate: Starts from THB4,094 / MYR608 / SGD184 on Agoda Address: Soi Thanon Klong Hang, Moo 3, Aonang Sub-district, Muang District, Krabi 81180 Thailand Contact: +66 7568 0450 Website | Facebook | Instagram And there you have it! 8 villas that'll ensure a romantic retreat for two in Krabi.
