      The perfect peaceful place in Krabi.”

      This place is perfect for anyone who needs a relaxing time. Here is far from crowded. The strongest teamwork will support all your request. They seem could read your mind. Sometimes they served anything we were not even asking for. Thank you all and especially to Miss Patty, the butler who worked so hard to make sure we had enjoyed the stay.

      The staff make Phulay Bay!”

      The hotel is lovely, the sense of arrival is fabulous and quite a unique experience but I will not spoil it for others. The Villa was massive and equipped with everything you could need. The food was great, we dined in all the restaurants and all were very good. We were very lucky to have a private dinner on the beach and that was just fantastic, thanks to Leks our host and our wonderful BBQ girl (sorry forgot her name). What set Phulay Bay apart from most others was the entire staff, especially Sabai! Sabai was our wonderful butler during our stay. Sabai was there for us during our four days, whether it was setting up hot baths whilst we were out to dinner and leaving us lovely messages welcoming us back to the room, or entertaining us with nice stories or driving us around the resort whenever we required. Her service was very genuine and it really did make all the difference, thank you again Sabai and all the team at Phulay Bay resort!

      Perfect place if you want lots of privacy”

      The staffs are awesome, just like what were mentioned in many reviews. Our butler, Sabai had made our stay a memorable one!! Thoughtful, polite, friendly...you really cant ask for more. Restaurant : We only tried both the Thai & International cuisines. The food was decent at a much heftier price though. But this was expected because consider the convenience of eating inside the resort, then travelling 20mins to the main site, eg. Ao Nang. **Note** The view at the breakfast are is a BANG!!!! That explains why we always spend 2hrs there...haha Overall, it's an luxury to stay in this resort. And that comes with a price to pay. Whether it's worthwhile it really depends on individual.

      We booked for transfer from the airport to hotel but it didn't come and we had to take a taxi. It was quite upsetting as we were all very tired.The GM welcomed us and apologized for the inconvenience caused. They paid for our taxi fare and upgraded us to a very nice villa. It was the butler that was amazing. He took care of us very well. I thank Yid for his excellent service.

      a wonderful stay at Krabi even raining”

      1.the staff is very nice and helpful 2. fantastic sea view from the hotel swimming pool 3. unforgettable breakfast

      upon we arrive, it was raining nonstop. me and my girlfriend felt a bit disappointed abt the weather until we reach our hotel, the Phulay Bay. Hotel staff are waiting for us at the hotel entrance and prepared tasty lemongrass tea for us to refresh. have to say the service there is absolutely 5 stars. This is the first time that i would like to stay more in the hotel rather than going out for sightseeing. the hotel was designed like a garden, all the layout is just right. they also offer many activity, like yoga on the beach. only the location is not the best, it is a bit far from the town, takes abt 20mins by taxi, but i believe it wont be this nice if it very close to the town, it is the best place to hideaway. The most important thing is my girlfriend loves it a lot, and this is our first trip and we had a fabulous experience at Krabi with Phulay Bay.

      Cleanliness, comfort, privacy

      Staffs are excellent!! Unfortunate for the location being too far away, no foot access to anything beyond the resort - unless you line up your own itinerary for the day or evening, be prepared to while away within the resort complex during your stay. Only 1 restaurant was open and In-villa dining available during our 3-day stay. Very limited options. Besides the above, everything else was perfect for us!

      Make a dinner reservation ”

      If you plan to eat dinner at the resort expect to pay a few hundred dollars for 2 people, and make a reservation or you'll be staring at an empty restaurant while the waitress tells you their fully booked for the evening. Our 'butler' failed to mention this , and when I asked if their were any Italian restaurants close by he blatantly lied and said no even though there are two in less than a mile away, simply at competing resorts. Then he said he would cart us to reception when we needed to check out but concierge came to grab our bags and said our 'rediculously overpriced' taxi had arrived. We walked uphill to reception and saw our butler as we passed carting a different guest around. My two recommendations are to eat dinner elsewhere unless your rich, and bring your own alcohol. The property is gorgeous and worth a stay, bed was super cozy....they claim they light a thousand candles but it really only about 20 and the rest are electric, only got a glance BC a private dinner.

      My wife and I had a really enjoyable time at Phulay Bay. We don't normally stay somewhere so luxurious, but we decided to splurge this time. From arrival to check out, everyone was so helpful and attentive. Rooms were amazing and facilities were great. I'd recommend this hotel if you want to push the boat out and stay somewhere special. The resort is quite far from town so I'd recommend renting a car.

      Amazing Stay at Phulay Bay”

      Atmosphere of all elements of the hotel, room size, service from staff

      Best hotel / resort I have stayed at in my life. Perfect for honeymoon. Very relaxing. I was traveling in Thailand (Bangkok, Chang mai, Phuket, and Phi Phi. This resort was great to be at just to get away from the hustle and bustle of most Thailand cities. I liked that the resort had a free boat to a nearby island, this added value to the stay. Sunset bar was great and had 2 for 1 mojitos for happy hour. Room was amazing. Buffet breakfast was pretty good, had all the typical breakfast foods of any American buffet. Restaurants on site were the only downfall. Good food and service, but I'm sure there is much cheaper off the resort. However, staying on the resort is just convenient. Butler was pretty good, but weird for me because I am not used to such service. Best hotel in the world so far.

      My family had a wonderful stay in the Phulay Bay villa in Krabi in June. The hotel staff was incredible with their attentive and personal service. The villa was luxuriously furbished, with the largest bathroom that I have seen anywhere in a hotel or villa. The infinity pool was great with a fantastic view out to the Andaman Sea. Highly recommended, especially for the off season. Only blemish on an otherwise perfect stay is that the weather did not allow us to take the complimentary boat trip out to Hong Island.

The Hotel Management was roaming the resort and made sure we were enjoying our stay...the staff all seemed to know our name.
