The room has a very nice outside bathtub, which comes in great with the warm Thai weather. The pool area is nice, always plenty of... More

We spent 5 days in a Beach Villa at the Ritz Carlton Phulay Bay. After 45 minutes drive from the airport, we arrived at this extraordinary place around 19.30pm.. Welcome team was very friendly, however, we were not allowed to enter the main entrance gate with the extraordinary view of 1.000 candle lights because a private function for a couple... More

Recently had a relaxing weekend spent totally at the resort. Our room was basically a private villa with our own step out balcony and pool. The back courtyard held an open shower lotus tub. Had complete peace and quiet with all the comforts of home. The bed was THE largest bed you could imagine and sumptuous. Grounds were lush and... More

My first experience with Phulay Bay was back in 2010 when they were quite new. We spent a 3-day weekend down in Krabi just to try it out. Our butler was excellent and catered to us with both understanding and a hint of anticipation. We mentioned we liked elephants, and she immediately scheduled to pick us up in time for... More

Overall the entire resort is magnificent! The service is as excepted of Ritz Carlton and much better. The entrance alone was a different experience than any other luxury hotel you may have experienced. As this is the first of the 3 Ritz Carlton Reserves in the world, it felt like you were whisked off into your own large private garden.... More
