Everything is amazing here. In the morning I loved to order chilled oatmeal among other delicious dishes. The service is very impressive! The staff are super friendly, nice, helpful and attentive. The accommodation is super comfortable.

Fantastic hotel, well deserves the title of the best resort in Krabi area and probably one of the best in Thailand. Location is absolutely heaven , beaches of Prah Nang and Railay are amazing and the accommodations and service in the hotel itself are top class. Very recommended for whom who can afford the rate, but best value for your money is guaranteed!

Feel welcome and truly relax. Staff is friendly especially the recreation staff on the beach, and Rai Talay restaurant staff. We are happy with the overall experiences and my husband really love to strolling around the garden every morning. It is really good feeling and exclusivity as the five star hotel should be. Even though the Pavillion is old but the touch is still excellent as the luxury should be. In general, we will definitely come back. We really love the vibes, the friendliness of the staff, that make us feel like home.

Old hotel but very good service In Railay this hotel was the oldest and had the best location. It had like 3 beaches and direct access to the Pranang beach. Other hotel had to wait for the sea level to go down or walk around the hotel. Best for kayaking. Lots rocks and caves. I tried rock climbing for the first time right at the Pranang beach. Still would like to repeat a lots to explore nearby. As it was an old hotel, the hotel and rooms were very biggggg. The less you pay for the rooms the further away from Pranang beach you are. The ghetto restaurant served good food but you had to book early for the seats in the evenings.

The hotel was nice and the villas were comfortable and clean. My biggest compliant was their restaurants, specifically Grotto. Food was terrible, served cold, bad flavor, worst service. Would NOT recommend wasting time and money at this place. They sell it as luxury and it was the worst dinner experience we had in out entire honeymoon. Manager tried to make it up by giving us 30% off dinner but we still regret so much going there. If you go to hotel, enjoy the beaches and the resort but I would do all my meals outside.

It has been a pleasure to be able to enjoy a place as wonderful as this, not only because of how beautiful it is, but also because of the people who take care of all the guests. It is a fantastic place, surrounded by nature and with great detail. We have been treated like royalty. From here we want to give the most sincere congratulations and thanks to Miss Oil for how well she has behaved with us and for how she has taken care of us these days. Rayavadee is the closest thing to Paradise. Thanks for everything. Souvenirs from Spain. We hope to be able to return one day.

Dear chiarasdfghjkl, Thank you for your feedback, although it was something that happened almost one year ago! I remember October 2021 the hotel was quite busy and we were not accepting any outside guests. So I find it highly unlikely that we would have accepted others from your group. Our reviewers can read from others that 99% of their visits our staff are always complimented very highly for their attentive and friendly service which is what Thai hospitality is renowned for. However, as a disgruntled visitor you responded in this way. Kind Regards, Susan Young Duty Manager Rayavadee Resort, Krabi

Stayed at the resort for one week in July in a pool villa for a mother-son trip. . What an absolutely delightful stay after two long years of Covid! The staff was incredible, especially Ray. We were sad to say good bye to her and several other staff. Ate at every resort restaurant multiple times, and the food was great. Loved the pool and beach side staff, the monkeys, the jungle feel, the many options for swimming, and the massive pool. Used the resort speedboat to a local island and bay, worth the money for sure. The gift shop is massive and high quality, but couldn;t find Rayavadee shirts for sale! We were gifted hats and a resort bag on departure day, quite nice. We still talk about our week in Krabi, and hope to return. We only used our villa pool once, really no need for one! This is a special place, and if you talk to the staff and other guests, you will make friends for life.

Perfect accommodation for private enjoyment with well educated and friendly staff in beautiful scenery. Especially, I can not forget the dinner I had at the Phranang beach. It was almost perfect except for the rainy season.

I would highly recommend the Rayavadee resort. From initially being greeted at the airport to the boat ride to the resort and check in at the hotel, the service was impeccable. The hotel feels very established and this is reflected in the staff, many who have been with the hotel for over a decade. The resort location is unbeatable positioned amongst three beaches in the Krabi peninsula all with the most stunning vistas. We travelled as a family and were lucky to have a butler, First, who contributed greatly to our wonderful experience. She was warm and intuitive and looked after us the entire holiday. The food in the restaurants were delicious and reasonably priced. We did a boat trip to neighbouring islands and a Thai cooking class; both excellent. We are already planning our next visit at the Rayavadee!
