Accessible only by sea on the edge of Krabi Marine National Park, Rayavadee is hidden away on 26 acres of tropical gardens and coconut groves where sheer limestone cliffs and lush jungle foliage collide with white sand beaches and the azure waters of southern Thailand’s Andaman Sea. Stylish accommodations, plenteous sea excursions, fine cuisine, one of the most unique relaxation spas in Thailand, and warm, attentive service make this tropical haven a true piece of paradise.
Rayavadee boasts enchanting two-story pavilions and luxurious private villas decorated with polished wood, richly-colored fabrics, handcrafted details, and large, glass doors that open onto breezy outdoor terraces amidst lush palms. The award-winning circular architecture of the pavilions blends with the breathtaking natural surroundings to create a unique atmosphere reminiscent of an idyllic southern Thai village. The four exclusive beachfront villas offer an even more pampered stay with direct access to the beaches, personal butler service, living and lounge areas, kitchenettes, dining rooms, and private pools and decks.
Commence the day with an energizing, wholesome breakfast at Raya Dining, where columns intricately carved to reflect the area’s marine life frame the dining room’s delicate gold mural depicting a group of swirling dolphins. Return later for an innovative dinner menu featuring specialties of Krabi grilled lobster with saffron, poached parrot fish in lemongrass coconut broth, and Rayavadee’s signature mini “burger trilogy” dish. Krua Phranang, the resort’s romantic Thai restaurant, and Raitalay Terrace, a casual Asian-inspired light eatery, also present exceptional dining options. When not dining, try some relaxing at the Rayavadee Spa, known for its extensive range of therapies drawing on ancient Thai healing traditions.
The excursions from Rayavadee are numerous, varied, and convenient. Directly from the resort’s doorstep, enjoy rock climbing on the steep limestone cliffs, kayaking through Ta Lane’s thick, pristine mangrove forests, hiking nature trails to waterfalls, scuba diving at the in-house diving center, strolling through Krabi Town’s morning markets, rambling through the Krabi landscape, and taking Thai cooking classes. Whether escaping to a deserted beach for a sunset picnic, or spending the day on a speedboat visiting the emerald green waters, quiet coves, and rainbow-colored fish of nearby Phi Phi, Poda, Chicket, Tub, Si, and Hong Islands, each experience is seamlessly personalized for each guest, for an unforgettable adventure.Request Information
