Rayavadee

Krabi, Thailand

The hotel

The setting for this award-winning Thai hideaway is just about as tropical screen-saver as you can ever imagine; with limestone cliffs and palm trees juxtaposed against white sand and the warm blues of the Andaman Sea. Thanks to the location, adjacent to Krabi Marine National Park, you'll find no end of excuses to stroll and soak up the scenery with beautiful gardens, coconut groves and faraway islands helping to pleasure all of your senses. Rayavadee's award-winning architecture also pays homage to the surrounding environment and local culture with an arrangement of exceptional guest pavilions presenting an authentic and calming Thai village ambience. What with the sights and sounds of Thailand fulfilling your wildest dreams it almost seems greedy to wish for anything more although, as you're on holiday, dining out is always an extra treat that's not to be missed. Five-star grills, signature dishes, romantic settings and sunset views, from underneath a limestone cliff, are what you have to look forward to and if you're expecting rice with everything then be prepared to fully increase your expectations. No trip to Thailand would be complete without a trip to the spa and as Rayavadee offers an extensive range of tailor-made packages you're bound to find the right blend of beauty, pampering and spiritual relaxation to suit your every mood. It's no surprise that Rayavadee has won a plethora of awards with Best Hotel in the World, Certificates of Excellence and The Royal Gold Medal for Environmentally-conscious Architecture all helping you get a feel for things to come.

Gorgeous surroundings, three beaches, cannot imagine a better location. This is nature at its most stunning and it is a privilege to stay in the middle of it all.

Gorgeous surroundings, three beaches, cannot imagine a better location. This is nature at its most stunning and it is a privilege to stay in the middle of it all. The rooms are well appointed, decor a little dated perhaps, but all is in good order and we loved our villa. The breakfasts were fabulous (with delicious healthy options) and the staff kind and responsive. The swimming pool was huge and the view from it divine. The Grotto restaurant maybe not as dramatic as the photos suggest, but never mind, again a great view. We liked that the boat trip to get to hotel was included in the price, so many hotels slap on an extra charge. Free of charge afternoon teas too! All in all this has got to be one of the loveliest hotels in Thailand, thank you Rayavadee, we will be back! Read less

My husband and I enjoyed part of our perfect honeymoon in Southeast Asia at the wonderful Rayavadee resort. This was right before COVID was declared a pandemic, but even then they were already taking all the necessary health precautions. The grounds are gorgeous and it truly feels like you’re eons away from the real world. Everything was clean, the bungalows are spacious and classic, we were pampered with a complimentary spa session, and months later, we still remember the delicious breakfast we had at their restaurant. The cherry on top of our stay was a pampering kit they gave us to take home and remember our stay with them. It included lotion and body wash that I have now ran out of and I desperately wish I could get more because it smells wonderful (and also brings back beautiful memories). If they could sell it and ship it to me would gladly buy it forever. Read less

Love watching the sunset at the grotto. Spa was wonderful. Staffs were friendly and helpful. Breakfast wasn't that great but apart from that perfect stay. A good resort for adventure loving people, would love to come back when I'm not pregnant as I couldn't participate in any activities this time. Highly recommend this hotel. Read less
