The Exclusive Luxury Rayavadee Resort, Thailand

Rayavadee’s setting on the edge of Krabi’s National Marine Park at the heart of the stunning Phranang Peninsula perfectly blends lush foliage, limestone cliffs, white sand beaches and the emerald waters of the Andaman Sea. The resort’s award winning architecture and tropical landscapes were inspired by the atmosphere of a southern Thai village.

The luxury Thai resort’s enchanting two-story pavilions and beachfront villas are spread over 26 acres of coconut groves, their spacious interiors and décor providing unsurpassed comfort for the property’s highly discerning guests.

Krabi province is located on the Andaman coast 800 kilometers south of Bangkok and is blessed with picturesque fishing villages, sandy beaches, and crystal clear waters. Krabi International Airport has numerous daily flights from Bangkok whilst Phuket is just a two hour drive by road.

The luxury Thai resort’s 98 two-storey pavilions and 4 luxurious, beachfront villas are dotted throughout tropical gardens and coconut groves, recalling the atmosphere and charm of an idyllic southern Thai village.

Their Deluxe Pavilions boast fully equipped, spacious accommodation and stylish, tropical decor with polished wood, richly coloured fabrics and handcrafted details throughout as well as an outdoor terrace with seating. The circular design of the pavilions blends perfectly with the resort’s surroundings, echoing the rounded cliffs of the rock formations that characterise the area’s unique landscape.

Whether you are interested in cultural activities, outdoor pursuits or relaxing in gorgeous natural surroundings with a picnic on the beach, the luxury Thai island has a programme or activity to suit your needs. The resort’s Activities Centre offers a full range of excursions to Krabi’s most interesting sites as well as half and full-day trips aboard its luxury speedboats to the area’s outlying islands. In addition, sea canoes, snorkelling and wind surfing equipment as well as a Hobie Cat are available on a complimentary basis from the Water Sports Centre. Cultural offerings include Thai cooking classes, batik printing, flower garland making and learning the art of traditional Thai fruit carving.

There are also plenty of options when it comes to dining. You can choose from the Raya Dining, Krua Phranang, Raitalay Terrace and The Grotto, which is nestled under an ancient limestone cliff on the edge of Phranang Beach. Enjoy a leisurely lunch here with your favourite 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.
