In Krabi the surroundings are beautiful with the lime stone islands, but it´s getting more and more crowded every year. There are beaches in Phuket where you can relax too, like Nai Yang, but number 1 for relaxing is of course Khao Lak. Some recommendations; If you want a really isolated hotel: Haadson or Orchid, a little bit isolated: Briza or Paradise, top standard and more expensive: Meridien or JW Marriot. In Nang Thong or Bang Niang there is a larger selection of restaurants and massage, but still lots of room for relaxing.

The surroundings in Krabi ar lovely but the beach isn't great with loads of rocks in some parts so my choice would be Khao Lak.

Khao Lak for all the above reasons and more in the FAQs on the right.
