Reading about the Rayavadee Resort is like something coming straight out of a fairy tale. This 5 star luxury resort located in Thailand’s Southern province of Krabi is the perfect place to stay if you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of Phuket.
Accessible only by boat, nestled between towering lime stone formations and surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty the Rayavadee is a dream come true for honeymooners as well as those who would like to escape completely and enjoy the spectacular setting of this resort.
Situated at the heart of the stunning Phranang Peninsular on the edge of Krabi Marine National Park, Rayavadee is nestled discreetly amidst tropical gardens and coconut groves boasting 98 enchanting two-story pavilions (the smallest one with nearly 1,000 square feet of living space) and 4 luxurious private villas spread over 26 acres of coconut groves and tropical gardens. The award-winning architecture blends with its natural surroundings to create a unique atmosphere reminiscent of an idyllic southern Thai village.
Featuring a circular design, the pavilions resemble storybook cottages with their mushroom-like roofs. Each pavilion either has a small pool, an outdoor Jacuzzi or lush terraces with barbecue areas which make perfect spots for relaxation and privacy after spending the day discovering the surrounding islands with your private guide or an afternoon snorkeling and swimming in the azure waters of the Andaman Sea.
Enjoy fine dining in one of the 4 restaurants ready to spoil your culinary senses. The Raitalay Terrace is an ideal spot to enjoy Krabi’s epic sunsets and for a romantic dinner experience dining in the Grotto, nestled under and ancient limestone cliff on the edge of Phranang Beach.
Activities here range from the adventurous (hiking, snorkeling and rock climbing) to romantic island getaways in your own speed boat with picnics on a beach just for you. Don’t miss your private discovery of Phi Phi island – a must see when in Southern Thailand. No matter how long you stay in this magical resort, you can do as much or as little and always feel there is more to experience and discover.
Having traveled throughout Thailand I always recommend to combine a visit of Thailand’s breathtaking beaches with spending a few days in the Northern cities of Chiang Mai or Chiang Rai to take in the rich history, traditions and colorful culture of this wonderful country.

May all your travels stir your soul and change your life forever – Ales.
