In the South, environmentally conscious vacationers can spend a weekend staying at Varana Hotel Krabi's minimalist but elegant rooms to sate their wanderlust. Focusing on sustainable living, this brand-new luxury hotel crafts a wonderful wellcation experience for those searching for both mental and physical renewal.

Opened in April, it is a sister hotel of the famous Tubkaak Krabi Boutique Resort and by the fourth quarter of the year, it expects to have 141 rooms scattered across six low-rise buildings. Only a 45-minute drive from Krabi International Airport to Tubkaak Bay, the hotel sits on a 20 rai plot of land, where visitors can take in a panoramic view of the islands and Hang Nak Hill, one of Krabi's most popular tourist attractions. Each guestroom has a different view of the beach, mountains, pool or gardens and is created with a minimalist luxury design. To achieve stylish, clean lines, they are outfitted with the finest furniture and accessories made from premium sustainable materials.

During the day, guests can soak in four swimming pools -- an Olympic-size swimming pool, a classic pool, a kids' pool and a Naam wellness pool for health and exercise, with a 10-step DIY aqua therapy programme.

The idea of sustainable tourism encompasses a range of gastronomic possibilities. Every meal is prepared with a high quantity of locally-sourced ingredients, and only chemical-free fruits and vegetables from organic farms are used. The open-air Spanish tapas bar Sala will serve chargrilled small bites, hand-cut Iberico jamon and sangria made with organic wine. The beach clubhouse Hut will offer a choice of artisanal coffee, locally inspired cocktails, wood-fired pizza and fresh seafood.

Starting at 5,300 baht per night, the hotel offers a special package of room and breakfast with free 60-minute onsen access. There is a two-night stay package for which guests can choose from two special privileges, including a Chinese set dinner at Xin restaurant, a half-day longtail boat trip to Koh Hong, private round-trip transfers from/to Krabi Airport, a 60-minute spa massage and a 60-minute onsen experience at Faa Spa. Prices start from 16,380 baht per package.
