The resort forms a triangle that sprawls across Krabi and offers direct access to Railay Beach, Nam Mao Beach, and Phra Nang Beach. All three are part of the Krabi Marine National Park and are therefore preserved to the most pristine condition. All pavilions are opulently decorated with teak wood furniture and silk hangings. For a truly luxurious traveling experience, the Rayavadee Hotel offers guests a transfer service aboard its own state-of-the-art speedboat from the pier to the resort’s entrance on Phra Nang Bay.

Outstanding hotel

The "guestrooms" are actually houses and they all have 2 floors
Amazing. Location is perfect. Hotel has 4 amazing restaurants and 3 beaches. Free kayaks and water sports to go hopping around the islands near by. Only slight downside is noise pollution from local bars. Slightly noise can be heard in guestrooms near the front of the property in the evenings.

One of the best resorts in Thailand.

Location, staff, Food
We had wonderful and memorable stay at Rayavadee Hotel. The staff, ambiance, restaurants, beautiful beach and the natural environment combined to create one of our best ever hotel experiences. Special mention must be made of Susan Young, Duty Manager. Susan was happy to spend time with guests to ensure we and the other guests were happy and she was always happy to have a chat and really added a personal touch to our stay. She is a star! Other properties could learn from this property about great service and connected and happy staff.

Krabi in October

Location, Comfort, Quality of vegetarian food, though limited, was very good
We had a great time. Our rooms were both comfortable and classy. As Vegetarians, we have a tough time travelling outside India. In Rayavadee, we really liked the quality of food served to us. Though the choices are limited.

Friendly staff, beautiful surroundings, amazing beaches
Our stay at Rayavadee was amazing! The staff were very friendly and attentive. Our villa was spacious and luxurious. The grounds were spectacular and dinner in the Grotto restaurant was a highlight. The beaches were also gorgeous.

Just Perfect

relax, eat and swim
Rayavadee was just perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better place to spend 5 nights of our honeymoon. Food was first class, rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable and the hotel grounds were just amazing. The staff were all so helpful and friendly. I hope to return her one day soon.

Great Hotel - but not a 9.2

Room, Location/Setting
We had an enjoyable stay at the Rayavadee, but are surprised by the Agoda rating of 9.2. Ratings over 9 are rare and are usually reversed for the worlds very best hotels - that are world class in terms of their location/setting, their rooms, the service, and the crusine. Rayavadee is not a world class hotel in all of these areas. I would rate the Rayavadee as an Agoda 8.3 to 8.4 rating. The location, room (or rather villa) were certainly spectacular. But the crusine and service standards are far from world class. On the downside are their charges. The most extreme example is the airport transfer. A (private) taxi can be easily booked on arrival at Krabi airport to the pier where the Ravayadee boat departs for THB350. The Rayavadee charge for the same service is THB3,800++. I know 5 star hotels charge high prices, but over 10 times the price for exactly the same service is beyond reasonable and is quite outrageous and I question the integrity of management attempting to charge "unsuspecting tourists" this amount. Management justify the charge by claiming it is "a private car transfer", seemingly overlooking the fact that the taxi charge of THB350 is also a "private transfer" - and not a shared vehicle. My tips. 1. Don't use their airport transfer services and pay the outrageous charges. The costs are totally unnecessary and taxi's are readily available and provide exactly the same service for less than one tenth of the cost. 2. Don't book the excursions offered at the hotel. They are similarly expensive and are best booked directly with operators at Ao Nang. And anyway, while at the Rayavadee and paying the top dollar cost of the accommodation, best to make use the Rayavadee facilities and leave an excursion for another day. In summary, a great place to stay, and an enjoyable experience, although over-rated by Agoda at 9.2, and the lack of integrity applying such outrageous charges, even by 5 star hotel standards, is disappointing.
