A beautiful hotel set in lush jungle grounds nestled in between 3 beaches in Railay. The two storey room was immaculately clean, had everything you might expect to see and was well serviced during our stay. There is a wide variety of wildlife including large lizards and monkeys. It's easy to become lost in the jungle - it takes a couple of days to find your way around. Beach access to 3 beaches is good; one beach (East Railey) is very tidal and used for boat traffic, the other two (Railay West and Phra Nang) are amazing. The hotel pool is lovely and the staff are very attentive. There are fantastic views from the hotel restaurants and bars which are particularly lovely at sunset. Food and drink at the hotel are very expensive for Thailand, but is very good befitting a high class luxury hotel. There are many food options in the other parts of Railay outside the hotel which are substantially cheaper. However room service was really excellent and good value compared to many other hotels that substantially mark it up. Excursions. We went on two - an elephant sanctuary and a one day snorkelling / phi phi / Maya Beach / speedboat cruise with desert island lunch on Bamboo Island - both were excellent and memorable with attentive service with helpful hotel staff but are expensive compared to options available if you book outside. Note: There is no access by road at all, the hotel has its own pier in Krabi but this is not well signposted by the hotel and our 3rd party transfer driver got lost. We were told before we went that due to 'day 1' covid rules we had to book a private transfer from the mainland to the hotel - this 20 minute trip worked out at ten pounds a minute - vastly overpriced. We agreed to this before travel but felt it was a rip-off - almost as expensive as a half day tour to see the elephant sanctuary and not far short of the price of the excellent one day excursion to PhiPhi Island. Hopefully the hotel no longer has to do this as it left a sour taste in our mouth at the begining of our trip. Fortunately everything else was really good. The hotel does do regular transfers to Krabi dock on a timetable which are free. The Spa was amazing, we had a hot stone massage together just before we left and it was a wonderful experience. We were allocated a person to look after us. We have to say that the lady we were allocated did not seem to be particularly interested in us - however another lady called 'Smile' did a fantastic job - although of course she was wearing a mask so we could not see the smile for which she was named.

Dear Simon S, We would like to take the opportunity to thank you for choosing Rayavadee, and we really appreciate you taking the time to share your beautiful experience with others. It was more than a pleasure to read that you enjoyed our unique property and memorable attentive service. We are more than delighted to hear you enjoyed our Excursions and Spa and the wildlife that share this beautiful property with us. With regards to the transfer. At the time you travelled, Thailand was under the "Test and Go" program and unfortunately the only way for International travellers to travel to the Resort was by private car and speedboat. However, now that has all been lifted so travelling to the Resort is back to normal. We do hope we have the chance to welcome you back again in the not too distant future. Warmest Regards, Susan Young Duty Manager Rayavadee Resort, Krabi

Peaceful sanctuary with warm wonderful staffs. It always feel good when the staff can remember and call you by your name, we tried Grotto Restaurant, uniquely located inside a cave, good seafood grill dishes, a bit on high end price but fortunately they have 20% discount that make it still attractive to try. The bungalow is spacious with cool design. We have our own personal garden on the back yard for natural sun bathing. We'll be back again surely next time.

From the moment we stepped off the speedboat and were greeted by the staff the experience was truly 5 star. From the beautiful and sustainable surroundings of nature and the wildlife, to the first class service by the staff to the amazing food and accommodation we really had an incredible and unforgettable trip. I would highly recommend this place, as it's real 'gem' rarely found.

We came here for our honeymoon and stayed in a pool villa. The bed was so comfortable and the room was lovely. They prepared a bath full of orchids and champagne for us to celebrate. The grounds are stunning and filled with animals. Walking around and being surrounded by nature - watching the monkeys play, seeing large lizards and stunning tropical birds was amazing. The beaches are also utterly breathtaking. The staff were wonderful in the restaurants. Extremely friendly and warm. The food in the Grotto was not very good and very expensive. The view there is stunning. Meanwhile the hotel’s Thai restaurant at The other beach had fantastic food. I really enjoyed my stay here except for the fact that at night the music from nearby bars was still loud long after midnight. While the bed was so comfortable, the noise made it hard for me to sleep.

simply the place to be in Railay...of course if you are a group of young people who want to party this place is not for you as it's far from the oarty area. But for a family of you want to relax this is a perfect choice! restaurants are extrremely good..and the staff will take care of you. the only downside (but it's not of course hotel's fault) is the presence of some big lizards that walk in the area during the evening and some can go into the small gardens of the villas. if you go there or you just happen to be on Phang Nga beach go have a massage from the ladies on the beach in fron of the big rock in the water. They are so nice and good...much better than any other massage place I have been (better than the SPA at the Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok). Try to have the lady number 9 (I Think her name is Aew) massage you....she is so good!

Dear glober84, Thank you for sharing your stay with us at Rayavadee on the Tripadvisor platform. It certainly is the best hotel on Railay and the only 5* one too! Thank you for your kind compliments on our Restaurants and our staff. Yes, we do have monitor lizards and other wildlife that inhabit the Resort's area. We are surrounded by nature and we share this beautiful property with them. Not sure when you last visited Railay? There are no massages available on the beach since more than 10 years ago. Perhaps you are referring to Ao Nang on the mainland, were before Covid they used to do massages on the beach. Once again, thank you for your nice review and hope to see you back again sometime! Warmest Regards, Susan Young Duty Manager Rayavadee Resort, Krabi

Absolutely stunning stay at Rayavadee. Yes. It’s a bit more difficult to get to as it’s only accessible by boat but just so worth it. We had a villa, so beautifully looked after by Duan for our 4 night stay and a villa host-Luna who seamlessly look after everything for us, including getting drenched with us on our arrival when we needed to walk to the village to get our day 5 Covid tests. The villas were magnificent with a huge bedroom and bathroom upstairs and a living area and second toilet downstairs. The supplied toiletries were probably the nicest we’ve had in all our travels. The pool area was beautiful with a stunning view over the water. We ate in at least 4 of their restaurants and all of them were very good. Service at breakfast however was a bit hit and miss but we’ll blame Covid and I’m sure it will be sorted by now. Breakfast itself was excellent. Their signature restaurant, Krua Phranang was beautiful where we celebrated a special occasion. We indulged in a wonderful massage in the Spa. The facilities were beautiful. A short stroll down the beach is the village with a few shops, bars and restaurants. This is more like the Thailand younger travellers expect and it was certainly abuzz later in the day.

What a wonderful stay at Rayavadee! We stayed 5 nights. Completely natural surroundings in the jungle in a comfortable bungalow (with monkeys!). Staff on call at all hours. Many restaurants to choose from. We really enjoyed our excursion to the Phi Phi islands. The two main beaches - Railay and Phra Nang - were glorious. Pool and pool service were outstanding. Internet connection may be sketchy but we didn't care. The highlight of a wonderful vacation to Thailand.

We have been to Rayavadee seven times and we will be coming back again . I would say it’s a combination of there are no cars , no traffic congestion , it’s only accessible by boat there are two species of monkey clambering around the grounds , there are lizards and reptiles of all kinds. All evening there are small bats and large fruit bats , you can even see tree climbing snakes if you look very carefully these are not poisonous. 200 meter tall vertical limestone cliffs from the prehistoric era really make this a magical place. If you want to completely escape from the world this place is definitely for you.
