Our journey started and we were thrilled once we arrived at the hotel welcome pavilion. It was so stunning with the absolutely tranquil atmosphere. We were welcomed by the director of the hotel and taken straight away to our villa by our butler. Again, we were impressed by the room deco. The bed is huge and very comfortable. The villa... More

You often find in many supposed luxury resorts a heavy degree of creative license is taken with both the description and imagery of a hotel that ultimately leads to a let down. Not so with the Phulay Bay – it simply astonishes at every level right from the elaborate greeting on your arrival to your departure. Beautiful facilities abound and... More

I came to Thailand for the first time and travelled across the country (Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Krabi and Phuket) but this place is the one I will always keep in my hearth! The location is really private and peaceful and the staff is so caring! The management greeted us at check in and explained us the "foreign" point of view... More

We stayed as Phulay Bay Resort for a week and a half in late March. Me, wife and two daughters. The hotel is glamorous and certainly has the wow factors when you first arrive. The rooms have simply lunatic large beds - you nearly needed a phone to speak to each other if you were at extreme ends! They were,... More

great place, great staff, absolutely amazing beds and linen will make you sleep like a baby. amazing sunsets, view and pool. the beach is rocky so that is a major dissappointment because you can't use it. also there are no lifeguards at the beach which is scary. also no doctor in the hotel which can be trouble in case of...

I read the reviews here before and after I stayed there, but I feel that their flaws are too minor and I am taking an overall approach. 1. Wedding Too many things to say. Very flexible coordinator. embarrassingly I cancelled some setup at the very last minute as I was worried about rain and was afraid that it would be... More

Staff was excellent and attentive, anticipated our needs, were accommodating with food choices and provided the perfect relaxing environment. Pool area was very chill with adequate space and little hustle or bustle...the perfect get away. Spa was best experience, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the facilities. This is true resort experience, not meant for those... More

This review has been long overdue! But a year later, I am still raving on about the wonderful memories we took away with us on our trip. We travelled as a group of friends and had an amazing time in Krabi, mostly thanks to the incredible experience we had at the Ritz. From the service, to attention to detail, to... More

I had my honeymoon in Thailand and i really loved this place! From the service to the villa (we had a private pool with great privacy and beautiful garden) it was the best we experienced. We tried the Spa for a 3 hours treatment and it was very relaxing. The Spa has a private area with a pool with a... More
