It is just perfect! Jungle paradise, luxury all around, and best service ever. The only bad thing is the restaurants, they are too expensive for the quality given, in the restaurants out of the hotel you get the same, for half the price. I do not recommend eating in their restaurants. The rest is amazing!

Hi, Please read this and reconsider staying here. The hotel is nice with a jungle like experience (with monkeys, lizards, butterflies, etc.) They really try to provide exceptional service and have some nice touches, e.g. flowers and drink upon arrival, umbrellas everywhere as needed, etc. There are some opportunities for improvement (service at breakfast, etc.) but overall not a big...

Dear LoJo1979, Greetings from Rayavadee. The beaches around Rayavadee are public as are all of Thailand's beaches. For this reason, we are not able to offer a private beach exclusively for Rayavadee guests. It is also worth mentioning that your visit coincided with the Christmas and New Year holiday, the busiest time of year. While it can get busy during... More

By far the best resort in Railay Beach and all of Krabi. Such a beautiful place, it was like stepping into paradise when we arrived. The resort is very large with access to 3 different beaches, but all of the pavilions are well spaced out in between trees and landscaped gardens, making them feel very private and secluded and meaning...

The resort is the best in Railey Beach. The villas are very private, comfortable and tastfuly furnished. The staff is very professional and the service provided is outstanding. One has a great choice of activities and trips organised by the hotel throughout the stay. There are plenty of restaurants for all tastes in the resort and the breakfasts are rich... More

From the moment we stepped off the plane we received first class service. The transfer from the airport was faultless and we arrived at the hotel feeling very relaxed. This excellent service continued at check in and throughout our stay. The villa we stayed in was beautifully furnished and felt very private even though it was right next to the... More

Perhaps you have seen the spectacular photos of this romantic, cozy looking restaurant on Pinterest or elsewhere on the web. Well, just so that you know--they are, of course, taken from the ideal perspective. Just don't expect it to look quite so good when you are sitting at one of those teak wood tables. Also, if you are not staying... More

There is no place like this! Surely this is the most beautiful beach property in Thailand.

My wife suggested a holiday at an expensive resort, and I cant thank her enough for the wonderful experience we shared together. We arrived to the most extraordinary accommodation I'd ever seen - 2-storey bungalows in whimsical shapes - like a Pith Helmet or Mushroom... a sumptuous lounge downstairs, a winding wooden staircase up to heaven in a bedroom with...
