From the moment we arrived the staff couldn’t be any more helpful. They offered us an early check in and the porter was extremely helpful in showing us to our room. The room was spacious and well equipped but the view was just incredible. Breakfast...More

There is a ferry that can take you to Krabi Town, we went via Phi Phi island. Once in Krabi Town, you take a 20-minute water taxi to Railay beach as it is not accessible by car. I hope this helps, Charlie
