Guide Price £1,729 per person
Based on 17 May 19 departure from London Heathrow flying with Thai Airways, staying for 7 nights bed and breakfast in a Reserve Pavilion (2 adults sharing) including return transfers.
Our guide price gives you an idea of how much to budget for a stay at this hotel. The price will vary based on exchange rates, and your choice of room type, departure date, airline and cabin class, and any additional extras you’d like to add to your holiday.

For those who appreciate pure luxury.

A hidden retreat, Phulay Bay's setting in  southern Thailand is truly special.  Close by is the Andaman Sea, lush jungles, ethereal beaches and crystal-clear waterfalls.

On arrival, your first impression will be of a magnificent Thai pavilion where you will be met and whisked off to your luxurious accommodation in a golf buggy.  Take in the peaceful gardens and start to relax into a slower pace of life. Here you can do as much or as little as you desire. Try kayaking to get a unique view of the limestone cliffs that Krabi is known for. Or take a jungle walk that leads you to the National Park and ends at the top of Naga Mountain. If all that is a little too strenuous – how about candlelight yoga, where candles, aromatherapy oils and relaxing music are used to completely unwind your mind. A visit to the Phulay Bay Spa should be high on your list of things to do – experience extraordinary spa treatments, which will leave you in a blissful state of relaxation.

There are six dining options to choose from – some offering well known western dishes, some offering more local cuisine, but all delivering an exciting culinary voyage. If you wish to design your own culinary adventure – whether it is a barbecue on the beach, a romantic sunset dinner for two, or simply a picnic while exploring Krabi's natural beauty, it can all be arranged for you.

Perfect paradise except...

Melbourne, Australia

This place is close to what I’d call paradise. I’ll explain the close to comment and why I’d still rate it full marks later. The grounds are magnificent, special, and you can see just how much love, care and thought have gone into every single corner of the wonderful property. The amount of work and attention to detail that have gone into the maintenance is amazing. I especially love the famous Asian level of hospitality and made a mental note that if I want pampering, Asia is the way to go. Dinner at the Thai restaurant is AMAZING. The dishes recommended were all spot on. The rooms are elaborate, over the stop and downright luxurious. The bathroom has an indoor tub, a private garden with an outdoor tub, a separate with two wash basins, a separate shower room with two rain showers. The bed is big enough for 6 people. I don’t know why it’s so huge but I’m not complaining! There’re two outdoor sitting areas and they’ve thought of everything- sunblock, insect repellent, mosquito coils, beach bag, beach hats and the list goes on. The ‘close to’ comment relates to the other guests. There’re so many misbehaving and loud guests, I think the mainlanders. It’s a cultural thing I understand but the level of noise and the lack of awareness do have a negative impact of those around. A little consideration would’ve gone a long way but obviously that’s not within the control of the resort. Having said that, would I come again? Yes, but I’ll be sure to avoid the loud ones who’re without restraint!

Perfect

Kolkata (Calcutta), India

One of the best places I have ever stayed in. The place boasts of excellent luxurious villas with a garden area and a small pool. It is the dedication of the staff that makes the experience better. On the Tub Kaek beach this place is quite far from the city. But that makes it for a cleaner and far less crowded beach. Excellent in every way it makes for an amazing stay.
