The staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough to help. It could not have been a more beautiful setting - I wish I could live here! Great restaurants with so many options. We did a day trip out to the three islands which was fantastic - small group, lovely boat....perfect! Expensive but worth every penny!

The pictures on their site really paint a different idea of whats reality here. We thought we were coming to the best hotel in Krabi, instead we found ourselves with a crowded, dated, "resort" style place. The beaches were alright, the room was terrible, no view and stuck in the middle of greenery, it felt very cramped and claustrophobic. We... More

Great choice of food & cocktails, quality place by the beach, a calm luxury in this touristy area. I wasn't a guest of the hotel so I can't tell you about the rooms however I've had lunch there 3 days in a row. The service was perfect. The view stunning.

We have just left the Rayavadee after a wonderful six days in what is a truly stunning, unique hotel. Decor, service, location, every little touch down to the handmade cookies, glorious toiletries, childrens dressing gowns and slippers were fantastic!

When we walked into the reception area we knew we were in for a treat. The hotel is large and well organized. They have three beaches; the first one is for transportation only, the other two are for swimming. There are 4 restaurants; one for breakfast dinner that is near reception, the others are all on the two swimming beaches.... More
