Rayavadee Krabi

Rayavadee Krabi is one of the most photographed hotels in Thailand!

Nightly price from £138 per person

Description & Location

Rayavadee Krabi has a spectacular setting, accessed by boat, on a headland just off Krabi, 20 minutes from the airport followed by a 17-minute speedboat ride. Located within a national park, with lush tropical foliage, limestone cliffs and fringed by 3 beaches, two of which are amongst the most impressive in the region. Romantic and essentially couples focused, although independent and confident children will also find it attractive.


Rayavadee Krabi has 98 suites are dotted around the extensive grounds…

The majority are rondavel style pavilions with downstairs lounge area and upstairs bedroom. Spa Pavilions additionally have Jacuzzi and garden area.

There are also several 2/3 Bedroom Beachfront Villas, each with their own swimming pool.

A relatively new introduction has been 8 Terrace Pavilion Suites. See images 7 & 8.

Deluxe Suites have been totally renovated, along with upgraded facilities, a more contemporary design, plus a large outdoor shaded terrace. They are located close to the swimming pool, near to Railay Beach – See footnote.

Rayavadee Krabi is one of the most photographed hotels in Thailand. It is a a real Hide & Chic Beach Retreat.

There are numerous pathways linking the various facilities, so get your bearings as it can get confusing, particularly at night.

Foot Note – The main beach is one of the best in the region and can get very busy with day trippers looking to share your slice of paradise, even for just a few hours – but it will be every day. As all beaches in Thailand are public, this has to be accepted as reality.

Passport Renewal – Don’t Get Caught Out

Even though the passport office say they can cope with demand at the moment, I have still been told to expect at least 4 /6 weeks for a new passport to arrive. As travel demand increases the longer it will take unless you want to pay extra for fast track…

Phuket Sandbox Promotion

Phuket Sandbox Promotion

Although the Sandbox scheme has improved week on week since its introduction in early July, and most of the southern resorts have a high vaccination rate and low cases, the UK Government has chosen to look at the entire country and made it all on the UK Red traffic light NO GO area.

New Normal Pragmatism

New Normal Pragmatism

The present traffic like system for travel introduced by the UK Government was maybe well-intentioned but has probably lead to even more confusion. So this is an attempt to clarify, in deliberately simplistic terms.

Click for Booking Terms, Price Guides & Flight Information

All price guides are Per Person Sharing Double Room (Entry level), based on travel between May and/or June when prices are generally at their lowest and include promotional offers.
Supplements will probably apply at other times, particularly mid-summer in the Med, and for rooms and/or transfers arranged for single travellers.

For example, the Caribbean and Indian Ocean prices for winter can be approximately double the May – June level and about 50% more in Asia.

For the Mediterranean & Canary IslandsCaribbeanArabia and the Indian Ocean (except Sri Lanka) price guides generally include airfare and transfers.

*For Sri Lanka and Far East we show a per person per night hotel guide, excluding airfare, as arrangements tend to be individually tailored multi-centre itineraries.

Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, some hotels may have changed their facilities. Standard descriptions like distance from airport or town remain consistent as does the overall resort style. However, the number of restaurants, swimming pools, if more than one, are by example flexible and can change depending on occupancy and circumstances. Spa facilities, in particular, may be changed depending on local and international suggestions.


If your holiday decision is based on any specific facility please let us know at the time of booking so we can ascertain availability from the hotel. Please note, such information may be accurate at the time given but could be subject to change. In these times it would be prudent to be open-minded and flexible on such matters.


The situation on destination entry seems to vary month to month, or in some cases week to week or even day-to-day. For updated information please refer to the UK Government travel advice https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice. This will provide you with information on entry requirements including COVID-19 testing and any quarantine stipulations,  especially on return to the UK. As you will know this information is constantly changing, frequently at short notice as evidenced by our own Government actions.
