About the location
The coastline at Krabi is one of Thailand's most distinctive, with huge limestone cliffs towering above talc-white sands. It's a popular place with rock climbers - you'll often spy them clinging to the cliffs in the mornings, particularly at photo-worthy Railay Beach. The limestone is honeycombed with caves that are ripe for exploring. Wat Tham Sua (Tiger Cave Temple) is a favourite - its name comes from the paw prints in the stone inside the cave, supposedly from a tiger.
The waters off Krabi are studded with dozens of islands. The four that make up Koh Hong are a popular daytrip, as are the two Phi Phi islands, Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh. Take a boat out for the day and you'll find pristine beaches, half-hidden coves and some of Thailand's best snorkelling. Other standout day trips include the Emerald Pool, a beautiful pond filled with mineral-rich spring water, and the hot spring waterfalls, where you can enjoy the luxury of wallowing in balmy natural pools and cascades.
Krabi Town is where you'll find the hub of activity. Make a beeline for Thanon Khon Dern, or Krabi Walking Street, for street food stalls and shops selling souvenirs, handicrafts and rainbow-hued sarongs.

My wife and I have stayed for five nights in a deluxe pavilion at Rayavadee. The hotel was recommended to us by our local travel agent who had previously stayed at the property and this turned out to be an excellent recommendation.
You can truly call the location a paradise. We were greeted on arrival with a lovely welcome drink. And had a personal orientation by the General Manager herself, Dalin, who was brilliant. It was a nice touch that she personally made the effort to welcome us.
The pavilions are spaced well to provide seclusion amid lush tropical greenery. We saw workers every day brushing leaves and tending to the environment. The pavilions themselves are spacious, and provided us with a huge bed, the likes of which we have never slept in before. The property has a lot of nice touches including the provision of excellent toiletries. The daily top up of cookies in the lounge area was a lovely touch, and I apologise now to the management for emptying the jar on a daily basis !
It is true the beaches are crowded with day trippers but I thought the security personnel had a very good system of diplomatically steering away non guests, whilst always managing a smile at us when we left to go for a walk. Full marks to them. The swimming pool is large with plenty of room and we were always able to find a sun-bed where we wanted to be. On the staff side every single member of staff we saw were happy, friendly and helpful. Special mention to Bee at the pool and Bennie who looked after us. Both were great. Breakfasts were fine with plenty of choice, and we ate at the Railay Terrace and enjoyed the experience. We also enjoyed a nice sunset drink every night at the bars! Service throughout was personal and professional.
We came here at the end of an extended holiday for our 40th wedding anniversary and it was a super way to finish the vacation.
