Rayavadee is amongst the most atmospheric and brilliant resort operations not just in Thailand, but worldwide. A vision of pristine, secluded nature, in a prime Krabi beach location and built on the site of a former coconut plantation, the resort blends perfectly with its natural environment - its two storey pavilions hidden discreetly amidst the jungle scenery and tropical gardens.
Thailand's Krabi province is located on the Andaman coast 800 kilometers south of Bangkok.
Rayavadee is only 20 minutes speedboat ride from Krabi International Airport which has numerous daily flights from Bangkok.
Rayavadee is only accessible by boat, adding to its unique and exotic feel. Atoll Paradise will organize all aspects of your transfer logistics upon booking.
Rayavadee, bordering a marine National Park on Krabi's Southern Peninsula, is a vision of natural beauty and remoteness that will enchant from the first glance. Rolling green tropical gardens unfold, framed by imposing jungle outcrops dotted with tall palms, opening onto a long sweeping expanse of sheltered beach.
Rising inconspicuously from this Garden of Eden setting are the elegant accommodation villas, in perfect harmony with surrounds. The award winning design, inspired by the atmosphere of a southern Thai village, extends to the opulent modern tropical interiors, fitted with designer furniture and fine thatched and woven Thai craft work.
This property, spread over 26 acres of coconut groves, is an unspoiled gem offering countless blessings for the discerning traveler seeking to experience the best that Thailand has to offer.
Dine right by the sea at Rayavadee's famous Thai restaurant, accessed via a romantic meandering garden path. The menu of classic Thai dishes and specials includes delicious curries, salads, soups, seafood and freshly caught fish. Both air-conditioned and open-air seating with views over the stunning beach, limestone cliffs and outlying islands is available.
Conveniently situated between the beach and infinity pool and sporting stunning views over Railay Beach, here is the place to sample sophisticated light meals and snacks, and an impressive selection of cocktails. This is the recommended spot to take in a magnificent sunset each evening.
Here, International Cuisine is served in an elegant informal setting. The intricate carvings of the restaurant's columns reflect the marine life of the area's coral reefs, framing a delicate gold mural depicting a school of swirling dolphins. Begin your day here with an energizing, wholesome breakfast. In the evening, enjoy a sophisticated menu with dishes that range from light offerings and tasty salads to classics such as lobster and tenderloin.
Nestled under an ancient limestone cliff on the edge of Phranang Beach, this is an atmospherically soothing spot to enjoy a leisurely lunch with your favorite book or lose yourself in the magic of a perfect sunset as you enjoy cocktails and a menu of light snacks with soft sand underfoot and a hint of romance in the air. Special seafood barbecue dinners are served here several times each week.
