“Rayavadee in Krabi has one of the most romantic restaurants I have ever come across. The Grotto is located in an actual cave on the beach, and is lit by candlelight in the evenings – simply stunning.”

Amazing service, beautiful place

This place is absolutely beautiful. We stayed only for two nights, as it's a bit outside our normal budget. The rooms are amazing - each is its own private, two story bungalow, with teak wood and a huge bathtub. The grounds are beautiful, lush, jungle where we saw monitor lizards and two types of monkey. The resort is placed between three beaches, so you have your pick of swimming, snorkeling, and sunbathing. Railay is famous for rock climbing, which we availed ourselves of. The food at the resort is pricey, but tasty. The complimentary breakfast buffet was awesome. Finally, the service was truly the stand out aspect for us. Every employee we encountered was kind, friendly, warm, and helpful. Waiters would recognize us from a previous meal and ask about our day. You really get the sense that they care a lot about your experience. Can not recommend enough!

Paradise

London

Really nice stay in a pool villa. Fantastic sitting by pool watching monkeys swing around eating stolen peanuts etc. Three different beaches to chose from and really nice communal pool. Good quality restaurant options (not cheap) right on the beach. Excellent breakfast with tranquil outdoor setting looking over the ocean (with the pool villa). Would definitely recommend. Only downside is that due to being in a rainforest area with lots of water around (?) as soon as the sun goes down swathes of mosquitos arrive. Cest la vie!
