OK, I was a little skeptical at first about this hotel. To start with, the price was hugely higher than the other hotels on the list except the Ritz Carlton. Second, I was a bit torn between the Ritz and this one. A friend of none had stayed at the Ritz and recommended it but a lot of reviews even... More

Are you nature, peace and quiet lovers ?oh Boy look no further. We asked our travel agent ( the guys at Andaman Adventures ) to find us a place near Krabi where we wouldn’t feel like we were in Krabi town ( you know : busy, crowded, noisy, exhaust fumes everywhere ). I thought we had just asked the impossible... More

We stayed this weekend at the Rayavadee. It was beautiful and we had a wonderful time from start to finish. They pick you up on a speedboat (far nicer than other resorts where you have to get your own longtail boat and then have to walk through the water with your luggage), they give you drinks upon check in, and...

I have just read some of the negative reviews and I am shocked!! I do not agree at all. We stayed at Rayavadee as part of our honeymoon trip and we booked the honeymoon package which was superb! There were loads of added extras like a cookery class, private dining, spa treatments etc. The hotel is in a tropical marine... More

Loved the property and service levels were excellent. Could not get enough of the welcome drink With 2 toilets and 2 levels can easily accommodate families with children and a maid. Aircon a little noisy but not irritating. Speedboat takes you from the pier at Krabi to railey. It's during low tide when the boats can't come in that you... More

i was there for a business trip. i've heard much about the hotel. the eyes do more than the ears. rayavadee is an excellent choice to recuperate / lay down privately. you're not gonna get any party-animal themes there because all the connected beaches are privately owned and there's no road to the main land either. also, if you fancy...

Everything about the Rayavadee is 7 stars except the price. Definitely a life style decision but well worth it. Our mini bar in room had complimentary beer, candy bars and soft drinks. They now charge for transportation between Krabi Airport and resort. $100 USD RT. Beautiful and superlative as always. We shall return.

A huge resort with a lovely relaxed feel, the rooms are little villas that don't disturb the jungle and cliffs surrounding the resort. The whole setting is picturesque and you can walk to two beautiful beaches and lounge around by the pool or on the beach front. We had an individualised romantic dinner in the grotto (a restaurant area in... More
