Occupying a tranquil stretch of coast along the Andaman Sea, 800 kilometres south of Bangkok, Krabi’s tropical hideaways offer relaxation and adventure in equal measure. And none more so than Rayavadee, a luxury hotel at the tip of the Phranang Peninsula. Known for its much-photographed Grotto Restaurant – tucked away under a limestone cliff – dining plays a major role in the overall appreciation of Rayavadee. The onsite spa, too, is central to how this five-star resort provides a holistic guest experience, promoting therapies drawn from ancient Thai philosophies. Rayavadee inspires your adventurous side too. Go beyond the ordinary with authentic pursuits like Phi Phi Island speedboat tours, mangrove forest kayaking or waterfall hiking. Gain Thai cultural insights by learning flower garlanding, fruit carving and Thai cooking, and take a little of your stay home with you.
