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.

It was our second time here but the first time as a family with a 4-year-old. As we had experienced Rayavadee's high quality service before, we had some expectations. Given that it's this time of the year when the hotel was very busy and fully booked, Rayavadee still beat our expectations.
It was a super busy period, so sometimes we experienced quite long waits, i.e. for speedboat, buggy carts, etc. But I can feel all the staff tried so hard to serve us better.
Other than that, everything was just perfect. Great room, clean and flawless. Bed was extra large and most comfortable. Amenities were top quality that we must find them and bring back home.
Best location full of nature. My kid was so excited to see monkey families living in our neighborhood. Great pool and beaches. We loved the kayak.
Breakfast were soooo good, great variety and super delicious. We had all lunches and dinners in the hotel. All restaurants were delicious and of the best service, esp. Raya Dining Restaurant and its room service. Massages at the Spa also one of the best.
My husband and I were also touched by their impressive welcome back. We got warm welcome speech and a welcome back champagne.
Definitely come back again!

You had to access to this resort by boat only. It’s quite secluded. There were 2 beaches here. We tried to do snorkeling around the resort but we didn’t see much. Corals mostly were destroyed. Some fish could be seen though. You could enjoy the rock climbing here. Food was good. There were some monkeys around here too. What we loved here was when we reserved our private speed boat to have a day trip for snorkeling. They prepared a nice lunch basket for threevof us including setting up a plac le on the beach. Our daughter always loves to spend time in a speed boat facing with the wind. Our villa had two floors. Classic style. Be careful of the mosquitoes at night. Service was good here.
