The (little) bad.

- A little out dated design and decor.
- Wifi in the room doesn't work properly (complained 3 times).
- No need to eat at Grotto. Just grab a drink there. Food is OK but 3300 baht per person (total over 8000 for 2 plus service plus vat... this has no sense to it whatsoever. Total rip off.
- EVERYTHING is overpriced for NO reason (food, drinks, activities etc.). Highly recommended to just go out (3 min walk!). It is a small place so does not make sense to charge that much for everything (example - beer in the hotel is ~220 Baht. Outside in a bar - 50).

The good - we read many things about the service, the English skills, safety etc. This is all just wrong. The hotel has one of the best services we have ever received. Staff is kind and speaking good English (compared to Thailand). Resort is BEAUTIFUL! Most beautiful beach we've been in Tahiland.

I had booked this place for my wife's birthday, everything about this place was top notch. From the moment they pick you up from the airport then you transfer to the island via their private boat. Once you reach the resort they brief you everything about the resort. As this place is huge they have golf carts to transfer you around the resort. The highlight has to be the pool by Railay beach side which has the most amazing view of the beach ahead.The only negative thing I found was that I'd booked dinner for 2 at their prime restaurant Grotto, If i'm not mistaken the price was 3000 bht per head. I didn't find the food was up to the standard of this resort, it was bland and there was no value for money. They did give us a free bottle of wine for my wife's birthday though. Also the food from room service is crazy expensive! 400+ BAHT for a plate of Chicken Basil Rice. All in all it was a great trip but I would recommend them to change the set menu for the restaurant.

Rayavadee is one of the most interesting resorts to travel to. At Krabi International Airport, the Rayavadee "meet and greet" staff received us with warm smiles and took us by a van to a port (about 40 mins) where we transferred to a luxurious speedboat with comfortable white seats. What an exciting start to our holiday. As we neared the resort, as it was low tide, we were transferred from the speedboat to a floating platform driven by a tractor! When we arrived at the resort, the manager (Ms. Susan) was present greet us. She asked how our journey was and led us to the reception area. There we were introduced to the staff member (Ms. Sophia) who was to take care of us during our stay. Over the next few days, Sophia turned out to be most delightful companion and one of the key reasons that sets Rayavadee apart from their resort experience. She supplied all the information we needed, and told us more about the Krabi area and even chit chatted about travel stuff. The room has a spacious living area on level one and the bedroom is on level two. It is well-appointed. Neat and tidy, good design. We were very pleased with the room. At the pool area (which is big and not too crowded), we met one of the staff (Mr. Bee) who also was personable and chit chatted with us about photography. Told us where to catch the best sunset shots. There are langurs (similar to monkeys) around the resort, they are really cute and look quite smart with their white "spectacles". The resort is spacious and fronts 3 beaches. One of them (where we arrived) is the transportation beach so not much leisure happens there except for some small local shops and restaurants. The other two beaches accessible from Rayavadee are Phranang and Railay. Both have different features, and we enjoyed them. We also tried the Rayavadee Spa - Signature massage. It was so-so, nothing to complain about but it was unimpressive. We expected a higher standard of massage experience from such a nice resort. There are 4 lovely restaurants at the resort and we tried 3 of them. Railay, Grotto and the breakfast restaurant. My husband did not like the food at the Grotto, though it was the most expensive meal during our stay. Personally, I quite enjoyed the food but I must say the "Korean beef" dish served at breakfast doesn't taste Korean at all. I was especially pleased that the various restaurant staff remembered that I don't like coriander leaf in my food. Overall, we had a wonderful time over 3 nights (weekend) and we have good memories of the lovely staff we met there. Thank you.

We we asked for was exactly what we got.... rest and relaxation.
We stayed in our own private 2 storey huts that had all that you asked for and more.
Walking around this beautiful place called paradise! What an amazing experience the whole place provided! Then there was the local wildlife that literally comes in from the forest!
The staff was amazing and helpful. They are very warm, friendly and caring.
We are at both restaurants located at the resort, highly recommmeded.
The breakfast every morning was fantastic and again well worth paying for.
The pool was great and the beach was literally there with beautiful views across the Krabi area and the sheer lime stone cliffs that surrounds the resort.
What a stunning place to soak up the sun, enjoy the atmosphere and the surrounding.
Highly recommended and definitely a place to be in Thailand.
