About The Hotel

Situated at the heart of the Phranang Peninsular on the edge of Krabi Marine National Park, Rayavadee nestles discreetly amidst tropical gardens and coconut groves against a backdrop of sheer cliffs, lush jungle foliage and the clear waters of the Andaman Sea. In addition to stylish five-star accommodation, Rayavadee offers families fine cuisine, one of the most unique relaxation spas in Thailand, warm and attentive service and a kids programme with interactive experiences for little guests, giving them the perfect chance to have fun while exploring Thai culture and the resort’s beautiful natural surroundings.

Rayavadee’s Activities Centre offers a full range of excursions to Krabi’s most interesting sites as well as half and full-day trips aboard its luxury speedboats to the area’s outlying islands. In addition, sea canoes, snorkelling and wind surfing equipment is available at the Water Sports Centre. The Fitness Centre is located next to the resort’s tennis and squash courts. Cultural offerings include Thai cooking classes, batik printing, flower garland making and learning the art of traditional Thai fruit carving. The Rayavadee Spa’s extensive range of therapies draw on ancient Thai healing traditions and a philosophy of well-being that combines body, mind and spirit.

Nearby attractions for families include Phi Phi Island which can be reached in 35 minutes by speedboat from Rayavadee. The surrounding reefs are home to a variety of tropical fish and marine life. Closer still, Poda, Chicken, Tub & Hong Islands, with their lovely beaches and strange rock formations, are perfect for half day excursions. A stroll through Krabi Town’s morning market offers a glimpse of traditional local life while elephant riding, scenic natural parks and waterfalls are also situated nearby. The cliff walls and green waterways of Ta Lane’s mangrove forests offer exciting opportunities to explore by kayak.

Rayavadee’s 96 two-storey pavilions and five luxurious villas are dotted throughout tropical gardens and coconut groves and feature fully equipped, spacious accommodation and stylish details throughout. Nestled amongst coconut palms with the resort’s sheer cliffs as a backdrop, the Family Pavilions have two bedrooms as well as an outdoor dining area, sun loungers and a terrace, making them ideal for a family holiday. The spacious Family Pavilions with Pool have a freshwater private pool with jacuzzi set in an enclosed tropical garden with sun loungers and a dining area to enjoy private barbecues and meals. The villas offer extra space and a private butler service.

There’s a choice of four restaurants including The Grotto, set against a backdrop of limestone cliffs with views onto stunning Phranang beach. Raitalay Terrace offers casual style dining with a menu of light, Asian-inspired cuisine adjacent to the free-form swimming pool with views over Railay Beach, Krua Phranang serves Thai food and Raya Dining features international cuisine in an elegant yet informal setting. Kids are well catered for, with dedicated menus and special requests warmly received.
