Graciousness and warmth are the heart of Rayavadee, Krabi’s most luxurious resort and a member of The Leading Hotels of the World. From the moment you step off the resort’s private boat onto the pristine shores of Nam Mao Beach, the resort’s staff will welcome you with the best of Thai hospitality and five-star service combined.
This dreamy hideaway is a glorious gem engraved on a small peninsula and flanked by three beaches. Hugging the property os Cape Phra Nang, where the crystal-clear waters of the Andaman Sea encircle soaring limestone cliffs and neighbouring islands. Adjacent to the resort is the verdant Marine National Park, rife with wild monkeys and exotic birdlife.
Spread over 11 hectares (26acres) of coconut grove, Rayavadee’s award-winning architecture and tropical landscaping were designed after a Southern Thai village and 98 luxurious two-storey pavilions built as hexagonal-shaped cottages with high-domed roofing. These pavilions are categorised into different groups and offer different features-garden, deluxe, spa and hydro pool.
Spa pavilions come with a private garden and a jacuzzi, while Hydro Pool pavilions are built in a walled garden with a fresh water hydro pool, sundeck and barbecue terrace for outdoor dining.
Enter any of its rooms and the sweet perfume of jasmine drifts through the air. All its king-sized beds are adorned with earth-toned fabrics and natural materials, while bathtubs are thoughtfully built for two. Guests are never left hungry thanks to a continuous supply of mineral water, coffee, tea, handcraft chocolates and homemade chocolate chip cookies throughout their stay.
Still, one cannot live on chocolate alone. The epicurean pleasures at Rayavadee are certainly in a stratosphere of their own. The Raitalay Terrace, located beside the capacious swimming pool and Railway Beach, is well known for its spectacular sunsets.
Enjoy a cocktail while you revel in its beauty. Or perhaps enjoy a barbecue by soaring limestone cliffs and sugary sands at The Grotto, on the other side of the island.
For more hearty fare, Raya Dining serves an array of Thai and international dishes in an elegant yet casual setting. Otherwise, take a leisurely stroll to the romantic Krua Phranang Restaurant and Bar to savour the intricate flavours of southern Thailand.
With famous neighbours such as the gorgeous Koh Phi Phi just a hop away, simply take the resort speedboat and head out. But if you prefer your vacations relaxed, head to Rayavadee’s exquisite spa with will remind you just how far away from the frenzied world you’ve come.
