A quick summary of us - we are a couple in our early 40s who came to Krabi for rest and relaxation, but also to do some rock climbing on the magnificent limestone cliffs that surround the resort. We tend not to like 'posh' resort-only places, preferring to mix with the locals and experience some local culture. If you're anything...

Dear Wendy T, Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a detailed review of your experience at the resort.

Our second visit to an outstanding resort which remains truly memorable. We came across this resort purely by chance last year and had the most wonderful holiday. If what you are looking for is peace and tranquillity then look no further. We decided to revisit the resort again , something we don't normally do and obviously concerned that it would...

This was the second part of our Thai adventure after spending 4 nights at the Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp we decided to follow this with a 10 night stay at the Rayavadee.

It was our first trip to Thailand and I wanted to stay in a beach town that felt safe and comfortable. Our travel agent recommended Rayavadee as well as a few other vacation resorts. We decided on Rayavadee for a few reasons and ultimately chose it because of the beaches, cliffs, bungalow style rooms and quality. I'm happy with our...

Dear Jennifer R, Thank you very much for your kind review on Trip Advisor. We are very glad to know that you appreciated our location and the beaches as well as our friendly staff.

Rayavadee is the best hotel where I have ever stayed. The staff was very helpful, the tropical garden and the beaches are unforgettable. The villa was superb. I have gluten intolerance but it was not a problem since they have gluten free meals on the menu. I hope one day I can come back again.

This resort is amazing. Beautiful beaches, surrounded by limestone cliffs, and abundant wildlife. The grounds are impeccably kept. We stayed in October and it rained everyday. But it was so beautiful, that didn't even matter.

Rayavadee is perhaps the nicest beach resort I have ever experienced. I think it is the customer service, beautiful setting, amenities, and style mixed with the unbeatable location. From the moment we arrived, I couldn't stop staring up at the cliffs and off to the water. It was an experience unlike any other. It was incredibly romantic. The rooms were...

The location is incredible with very nice views. We enjoyed the boot trip to the hotel a lot. Service is outstanding friendly and helpful and the breakfast was one of the best we ever had.

We recently spent two nights at Rayavadee and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The location is truly one of the most beautiful I have ever seen and I could have spent all day just staring at Phra Nang Beach. But, the hotel offers so much more beyond the location. Our room was wonderful and very spacious and the...
