Rayavadee, Krabi

On the edge of the Krabi Marine National Park and hiding right in the heart of the magnificent Phranang Peninsular is Rayavadee. This unique and luxurious hotel nestles discreetly amongst lush tropical gardens and exotic coconut groves, not forgetting the jungle foliage, clear waters of the Andaman Sea and backdrop of sheer cliffs which make for a diverse yet astonishing view. To complete this perfect Thai bolthole, add in fine cuisine, top-notch service and one of the most unique relaxations spas in the country.


Surrounded by limestone cliffs, Rayavadee is only accessible by sea, although we’re sure you won’t complain at the thought of an exhilarating speed boat ride from Krabi Pier. On the southern tip of Thailand and hosted by the beautiful Andaman coastline, this is the perfect place to put on your Thai smile.

Your room

Architecturally, Rayavadee is faultless. Blending in perfectly to the natural surroundings, your room resembles the design of an idyllic Thai village and with its contemporary feel, surrounded by lush palms; you will find no better alternative. Bordered by three beaches, tropical gardens and 26 acres of coconut groves, your enchanting private villa will tick all the boxes.

Why we like it

We really have left the best bit till last as not only is the cuisine exquisite at Rayavadee but you can also dine in its very own grotto. Tucked away under the limestone cliff of the ancient Phranang Beach, admire the perfect sunset which a glass of fine wine and the sand beneath your feet. Calming, romantic and utterly unique, The Grotto really is something special. Families will love exploring the surrounding areas together with a variety of activities available including elephant riding, jungle adventures, Poda and Chicken Island snorkelling and navigating the turquoise waters by speed boat.  There are also complimentary ‘Just for Kid’s activities that are supervised by the attentive staff and include tennis lessons, Thai cooking, arts and crafts and garden discovery walks.
