If you’ve ever dreamed of taking in Thailand’s awe-inspiring natural beauty, the Phranang Peninsula on the south west coast should be your next exotic escape. The luxurious Rayavadee hotel, Krabi, provides the perfect getaway, where you can enjoy incredible vistas across a sea that glitters like jewels, watch the lush greenery lazily swaying in the breeze, stretch out on the warm and welcoming beach and, of course, take in the drama of Thailand’s famous wind-carved rock formations. As your boat draws into the stunning cove, you’ll truly feel that you have arrived in your own secret corner of heaven.
To cement Rayavadee as one of the very best hotels in Krabi, Thailand’s ancient traditions are kept vividly alive in the appearance of the resort itself. Rayavadee is formed of individual pavilions, each one boasting two storeys of opulent beauty inside. Every detail has been carefully and lovingly realised, from the fine furnishings to the friendly and highly professional attitude of the hotel’s staff.
Whether you prefer to relax and absorb your glorious surroundings in peace, to strike out on an adventure in the jungle or over the water, or to enjoy a luxurious shopping spree, there are so many opportunities to fullfil your desires. Thai cuisine is, of course, famously delectable, and this Krabi hotel’s 5-star experience would not be complete without a meal at one of its four beautiful dining venues, one of which can be found in the hidden fairytale location of a beach grotto, a natural cave in the soaring limestone cliff face.
For those who wish for adventure and romance, a visit to the award-winning Rayavadee hotel will be a dream come true.
You merely need to step out of your elegant pavilion to feel the soft, warm sand of Phra Nang Beach under your feet. Enjoy a gentle dip or a big splash in the safety of the cove.
If you love to shop, the extensive Rayavadee resort is just the place for you, with clothing, jewellery, antiques and many other elegant items on offer. There are also beautiful gardens to stroll through - or, if you need a rest, you can hitch a ride on a golf buggy. For adventurers and explorers, a variety of thrilling boat trips can transport you from the Rayavadee to the islands of Phi Phi, Tub and Hong to see the sights. Otherwise, you can learn a new skill in stunning surroundings with rock climbing tuition, kayaking and much more, all arranged with the help of Rayavadee staff. Foodies and culture lovers also have many opportunities available to them, with Krabi town, home of bustling markets and wonderful ancient sites, sitting just a short distance down the coastline.
The resort is accessible via a romantic boat ride. The pier from which the boat leaves is only 25 minutes by car from Krabi international airport, or 2 hours and 15 minutes from Phuket International Airport.
