My husband and I stayed here on the last part of a 2 week stay in Thailand and it was the best 4 days of the trip and were greeted on the beach from a motor launch with garlands. We stayed in a Deluxe Pavilion which was sumptously furnished to a very high standard. The service was impeccable. We had a barbecue on the beach (just the 2 of us) as just one choice for evening. The grounds were beautiful and we had fun with the monkeys which were abundant there. Would definitely go back.

Exquisite hotel and grounds with first class service. The staff were simply wonderful. Every small detail was taken care of and we felt exceptionally welcome.

The transport from the airport to the hotel was very good, wonderful driver and vehicle plus a boatride to the hotel .

Food quality was first class, great Thai, Western and Fusion food.

My only criticism would be that the Spa was overpriced.

Other than that, this resort is perfection. Beautiful swimming pool, stunning views, great friendly service, the bathrooms in the rooms were superb, bed was very big and very comfortable. The TV screen could have been a little larger, but everything else more than made up for tiny preferences not met. A definite winner.

Pros:
Location is exceptional in the heart of a national park, surrounded by spectacular limestones karsts and flanked by beautiful beaches (which are lively during the day, but deserted and serene morning and evening when they are closed to the longtails)
Food: exceptional in all restaurants
Service: Very well trained staff with excellent language skills. As 5* service really should be: speedy, attentive but not intrusive or overbearing. A lot of hotels could learn an awful lot from a visit here
Spa: Very serene, very relaxing and a must to kick off your stay
Other facilities: The pool area is superb, a massive freeform pool, with a dedicated pool staff who ensure you don't have to lift a finger if you don't want to

The exquisite attention to detail shown throughout the resort is what sets this hotel apart.

In summary, the benchmark against which all other hotels on the west coast of Thailand have to be measured against.

I cannot recommend it highly enough.

We stayed at the Rayavadee for three days. This part of Krabi is breath taking. Too bad so many others have fund that out.
The Rayavadee has wonderful grounds in the best location in the area. The staff is friendly and helpful. They do not seem very well trained for a 5 star experience. The rooms are really dated. I think the TV was 20 years old. The rooms are dark and not designed very well. There is no place to put stuff or to really unpack. We had a two room villa with a small pool. We paid more than $1,500 a day for this. The restaurants we ok and the food was average. The prices were very high However the sea bass at the thai restaurant was exceptional.We ordered it twice.
Transportation to and from the airport was flawless. It is a combination of limo and boat and takes about 40 minutes. Arriving by boat was wonderful.
I had a excellent 75 minutes massage. The fitness room is ok but a bit too hot to work out for long. But since the property is very large (I think 26 acres) you get a lot of exercise. Swimming at Railay beach is impossible during low tide. The water is about six inches deep and there are rocks. The other beach (forgot the name) that is adjacent to the hotel is a bit better. But there are tons of people on both beaches during the day. The pool at the hotel was very nice.
We did not take any excursions but I would guess going out to other beaches by boat would be a good thing to do.
We could get wifi internet in our room but they charged about $15 a day for it. This always gets me mad. Why charge $1,500 and then charge $15 for internet. They also had a 1 gig a bit limit on bandwidth per day.
The biggest problem with the hotel is value. It is just too expensive for what it offers. But with a bit of investment and better management it could correct this. I would still recommend this place if you are going to visit Krabi. Besides the Rayavadee, I can recommend the Railay Beach Club (http://www.raileibeachclub.com/) which we visited.. There are a number of other cheaper hotels but I have no knowledge of them.

Room Tip: Try to get close one of the beaches. If you have a family get the family pavilion. This provides f...
