This is a truly stunning property in Krabi and quite possibly the best hotel I've ever stayed in as far as accommodation and service. First of all, there are only about 50 villas on the property, all with assigned butlers (they usually share more than one villa, but their service is incredibly personal). This takes a page from the Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok, the only other hotel that match's RC Phulay Bay in service in my opinion. Any concerns and questions are handled in an efficient and timely manner. Everyone, from the GM to the maids to the guys who give you towels, are there to make your experience one to remember.
The rooms are incredible. We rented two resort pavilion villas, the lowest category of room. It was amazing. The bed is a DOUBLE KING with a huge and beautiful bathroom AND an outdoor bath, shower and lounging area (very private as well). There are also large outdoor porches with some views of the water and great views of the artfully landscaped property. We came with our two children and one room is plenty big.
Not to be missed:
-Espa is very nice. Great lounge area-steamroom, sauna, plunge pool, raw bar.
-Pool is very nice size.
-Sunset drinks at the beach bar.
-Free boat service to Hong Island, a fun day trip-they even send a staff member to take care of you.
-Rent a boat and see all of Krabi's beauty in and out of the water.
-Ley Lay seafood restaurant
-Great Fitness Center
-Baby Elephant at Cocktail hour-the kids loved this.
To be honest, this place is really the ultimate Honeymoon/ Romantic getaway spot. However, they were terrific with our kids, and it is a very kid friendly place.
Nicely, while this place is expensive, you don't nickel and dimed for everything. Most things-like the mini bar and in room espresso maker as well as internet and breakfast are included with the room price.
The only drawback to the place is that there is not a great beach-this is why they have the shuttle to Hong Island-which has a beautiful beach. This is also why I strongly recommend renting a boat and going around Krabi. The scenery is stunning.
