"Rayavadee's setting 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. Nearby attractions include Phi Phi Island which can be reached in 35 minutes by speedboat from Rayavadee. The surrounding reefs are home to a variety of tropical fish and marine life.
Closer still, Poda, Chicken, Tub & Hong Islands, with their lovely beaches and strange rock formations, are perfect for half day excursions. A stroll through Krabi Town's morning market offers a glimpse of traditional local life while elephant riding, scenic natural parks and waterfalls are also situated nearby. The cliff walls and green waterways of Ta Lane’s mangrove forests offer exciting opportunities to explore by kayak.
The resort's 98 two-storey pavilions and 4 luxurious, beachfront villas are dotted throughout tropical gardens and coconut groves and feature fully equipped, spacious accommodation and stylish details throughout. The pavilons’ unique circular design blends perfectly with the resort's natural surroundings.
Rayavadee'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 is available at the Water Sports Centre. The Fitness Centre is located next to the resort's tennis and squash courts. Cultural offerings include Thai cooking classes, batik printing, flower garland making and learning the art of traditional Thai fruit carving.

Rayavadee serves delicious gourmet cuisine in venues offering everything from elegant dining to casual beachside fare. There are four eateries: Raya Dining caters to Western palates; Krua Phranang serves delicious Thai cuisine by the beach; Raitalay Terrace is for daytime snacking and evening meals by the pool; and the Grotto offers light bites in a spectacular limestone cavern, with special seafood barbecues several times a week.
Krabi lies only eight degrees above the equator, and so naturally maintains a tropical climate all year round. The year is split into two seasons - hot and dry, and 'cool' and wet. Generally, the wet season begins in May and lasts until October, but due to the unpredictable nature of the monsoon winds the seasons can shift slightly, so there is a slight chance of rain on the edge of the dry season. The temperature peaks in March and April, when a dry heatwave is almost guaranteed. The Krabi seas maintain a year round temperature of between 28°C and 30°C all year long.
