Nice hotel but not worth the "Leading hotel of the world"-brand. What we did not like: Tennis court is unplayable as the ground is broken, gym is very small and dark. Beaches are full with day-trippers, noisy backpackers and longtail-ships (we didnt feel save in the water). Garden is a bit untended. What we liked: Excellent service, friendly staff, great... More

What amazing food. We werent staying here but ate in the restaurant twice in 10 days . About one of the only places on Railay Beach that seemed hygienic... seriously. The food was excellent as was the service. A novelty that we'd to wade back to our accommodation in the sea as we were staying elsewhere. Classy place.

My husband and I stayed at Rayavadee for the second year in a row in May and it was even more wonderful than our first stay. We love everything about it. Our favourite thing to do is to swim early in the morning in the beautiful Phranang beach, it is just heaven. Afternoons at the Grotto are fun just drinking... More

This resort was breath taking. We were here for our honeymoon and it was beautiful! Definitely a bit of a splurge but for our honeymoon it was worth it. I wish we could have stayed longer. Our adorable bungalow was clean and always full of bottled water, and a different fresh fruit daily. The resort has multiple different restaurants along... More

This resort is absolutely beautiful. It comprises 26 acres of rainforest and includes 3 beaches. Our accommodation was a spa villa which was on 2 floors and included a patio with a hot tub and outside shower. I must admit that we only used this once during our 4 night stay, so not sure if worth the extra. The location... More

Revisited as a couple from Now 21 to Nov 25 Rayavadee Experience - The Island of Princesses - As natural as it gets, a blissfull combination of seclusion and unparalleld beauty. The speedboat experience from the mainland to the island is stunning passing chalkstone rock formations. Rayavadee is an ideal destination for couples and as a returning couple we experienced...

Highly recommended for anyone looking for a top-notch Thai resort. Set in lovely grounds surrounded by stunning beaches (which do get very busy with visitors during the day but you have the sanctuary of the hotel's large grounds to relax in... I'd recommend an early morning deserted beach walk - stunning). Good breakfast, lots of wildlife, plenty of activities (I'd... More

We have just had the absolute pleasure of spending 3 nights at this wonderful resort. From the moment we arrived at Krabi Airport, we knew that we were in for a unique and special experience.

A hotel with the highest standards & most beautiful location! We stayed in a deluxe room & it felt like being in a jungle with the all convenience of a 5 star hotel you could imagine. (although I didn't go in the terrace or pool villas, I don't think they're necessary due to the lack of sunlight under the tree... More

“We were over by the pool which made for easy access to the pool and railay beach.”

“Request for pavilions further away from the beach as the sound of motor boats bringing in tourists during the day can be loud...”

“Get a Pool Pavillion, because those rooms are closer to Phranang Beach. Phrangang is much nicer than Railay Beach.”

“There seemed to be very little to distinguish a Standard pavilion against a Terrace pavilions which is a good deal more expensive.”
