Beautiful hotel - wonderful landscaping, elegant rooms, spacious, clean and very helpful staff. Fantasic breakfasts. Free wifi in reception.
We ate at the hotel next door one night - we went by the beach but you could really do with a torch. Food fine but nothing sensational.
There was nothing really around the hotel and about so we took a taxi back to the ferry port the next night for some shopping and a meal.
There were some buildings going up around the hotel that were nearing completion which maybe shops/restaurants in the near future.
We negotiated a taxi deal from the ferry and then a return collection. True to his word our taxi driver turned up on time to collect us as promised.

We came to Rawi Warin after transfering from a horrible hotel in AoNang. To us, it was heaven on earth! Beautiful surrondings and landscaping, excellent pool-area with pools for both adults and children as well as a waterslide. We stayed in a sea view villa, set up on the hillside with a beautiful view. The villa was nicely decorated, had a spatious bathroom with a rainshower, large balcony and tv/dvd (excellent for us travelling with children). The restaurants were very nice, both for dinner and for daytime by the pool. For a more leasure surrounding, the are other restaurants on the beach with nice and cheap seafood. The staff was very serviceminded and friendly and made us feel very welcome. I highly recommend the Rawi Warin!

Our problems started right in the beginning when they provided us a room on the top of the hill although we notified the resort 2 months in advance to put us as low as possible because of our two little children. The alternative they provided us was not a real alternative…it was the worst room of the resort. So we decided to take the one on the top. They assured us that the car service to all the apartments is very reliable and fast. They proved us wrong. One night we waited for 10 or 15 minutes in the rain before we decided to walk all the way down which was a little adventure in the dark on the rainy path with two little children (and it was not the only time we had to wait a pretty long time). The lights in our room didn’t work which they fixed pretty fast but one broken lamp was still not replaced after five days when we left although they promised to fix or exchange it fast.
The sea pool was not available although the weather was fine. Then one of the two places to eat dinner was also closed (and I don’t know why, it was not green season), the other one is pretty expensive for what they offered. When we ordered fish from the menu they told us that there is no fish available today (but it was on the front side of the menu)…funny story at such a prestigious place. The food we ordered was very good but a pretty small portion, we had to go to 7eleven to eat some more.

Breakfast is awesome, the staff is very friendly and kind, only at the front desk was a very rude and unkind woman (and we were not the only ones to complain). The resort is clean and great for children. You can rent DVD movies for free and there is even a little movie theatre at your disposal.
The beach is not nice, there are way better beaches on Koh Lanta but we knew that before and it wasn’t a problem.
Internet service is a bad joke… 60 US$ (!!!) for five days (or one hour for 7 US$ is also an option..crazy).

All in all we enjoyed the stay and recommend the place. But be aware that it may doesn’t match the expectations you have for a pretty high price and a 4 or 5 star resort.

I found a good deal for this hotel on a website 2 weeks before my travel date. I went and booked flights to Bangkok and down to Krabi. 10 days before my arrival I wanted to confirm my arrival time to which they replied they could not find my booking. I provided them with details of my reservation number and it was at this point it all went quiet.... After 3 more emails the hotel still continued to not reply to me.

After arriving in Thailand I got an email from the the booking agent as the hotel had made a mistake with my booking and were refusing to honour my booking at the agreed price. The price had increased massively in excess of what was actually on all other website. The booking agent tried to explain that should honour the booking but they refused too.

I write this to show my displeasure at the hotel for not only making a mistake which they admit was their own error but then refusing to honour my booking. I was fortunate that I didnt get all the way to the hotel to find out the bad news and was able to make other arrangements but for what was supposed to be a high quality hotel provided a really poor service.

I ended up staying at the Crown Lanta which was a lovely hotel so would recomend them

Stayed here for 9 nights and on the whole we enjoyed it,but there are some areas that i feel the resort needs to improve on. Our arrival was early afternoon after a transfer from Krabi airport. Check in was ok - quick enough although nothing spectacular and it was here that we first noticed the limited English spoken/understood by the staff. We were taken to our room, a sunset pool villa,by buggy and settled in. The suite was lovely with it's own private pool and stunning ocean views.There are 9 of these and ours was up on the cliff side with others down on the beach front. If you book one of these and wish for privacy then i suggest asking for one of the cliff side ones.Although a slight trek to get to, they are far more private.The suite had all the usual expected features such as bath robes, slippers, etc, but we were a little disapointed to see there was not a stock of snacks available and only drinks in the mini bar. The seperate living room had a large flat screen TV, full size fridge and a music system (which i could not get to work!). The bathroom although not extravagant was lovely and we loved the rain shower.

The resort grounds are really nice and there is a lovely relaxed feeling created by the lush greenery and pond. The main infinity pool was nice, although there did not seem to be an abundance of sun beds available and the actual space round the pool seemed limited. Not quite sure how they cope when busy? The beach is ok, but nothing more, not really ideal for sunbathing.

Breakfast was quite good, with a fair choice, but the only strange thing was having to sign a 'bill' despite it being included in the room rate?! We only ate dinner twice in the hotel as there was only one of the restaurants open. The food was fine although nothing extaordinary.

For us the biggest disaponting factors were as follows: only one restaurant open,Mojo's bar was closed, pool bar closed for most of our stay,no ocean pool,staff although very friendly and willing to help, really need more training,not enough info about facilities in room, (there was no spa info for example) and lack of entertainment.

A couple of tips- there is a 7-eleven right outside the hotel, stock up on drinks and snacks here at a fraction of the hotel price and try the local restaurants as they are pretty good and again a fraction of the price.

Overall we enjoyed our stay, but we feel that if this resort worked on a couple of its areas it would be a truly great place to stay. Having stayed at The Pimalai further down the island, i would probably recommend going there instead.
