From the moment you step on the boat to be taken to Rayavadee you know you are in for a treat. The resort and pavilions are awesome, the staff are outstanding, the food and restaurants are all top quality and the scenery is breath taking. We had the most amazing honeymoon here, would definitely visit again.
One tip - as a couple we originally opted for the half board option (which was £50 per person, not including drinks) but it actually worked out more cost effective to just go B&B and pay for food and drinks separately on your room bill. We didn't scrimp on what we had - for example we had a 3 course dinner with a bottle of prosecco but we still didn't reach the cost of what we would have spent if we had gone half board. Plus we found we didn't want 3 courses every night so worked out loads cheaper to pay as you go.

Location was great. Had a poolside room. Beds were extremely hard but this seems to be true in Thailand hotels. Breakfast does not really suit Western tastes except for omlet bar. Great value for the price. (Paid $75 U.S. per night). Staff helpful in setting up snorkeling trip but monsoon came early this year and so water clarity suffered and we could not really enjoy the beach. Recommend visiting in high season for best experience.
This hotel has the BEST location and this calm spot was my favorite from my whole vacation in Thailand!!! You can only get jer by boat I have to mention. I arrived and WOW...this hotel is between these amazing rocks and it is so quiet and peacefull. I had my own villa with outdoor jacuzi and the room was huge! The setup was so beautiful and the staff very nice. I also had the best Thai massage. The food was amazing and the breakfast included was delicious. The cocktails were also very cheap. I booked a full day of snorkeling in the surrounding islands and I had such a great time. I recommend to everyone to come to Railay Beach and this hotel is the best!!!
Beautiful hotel, friendly staff, perfect location, excellent food, gorgeous pool. Hotel room was out of this world with a lovely deep bath. Will be going back so say and would highly recommend it to anyone staying in krabi/Railay beach area. Spa was great to, great massage and facial. An all round brilliant hotel.
Overall it was an ok stay. had a room that was right at the back of the hotel, fine for me but would be troublesome for older people or people that have trouble walking. Arrived well after check in time, got sent to a room that wasn't ready yet, they gave me a different room quickly. Safe didn't work, maintenance came, reset it, still didn't work. Breakfast was average. Balcony was dirty for the entire stay.
This hotel is the last on the east side. It's far away from other hotels, but I loved it, you having your own private place. Great villa with great view and wonderful pool. The only thing that we didn't like - breakfast. Not to much variety, no fresh juice. I was always hungry after breakfast.
Hotel was pleasant enough, nice little pool, ok breakfast, good size villa, free wifi, good restaurant with the same slightly haphazard service we experienced throughout railay. Room service was very good. Just don't expect a super luxurious place but quality was fair given the price paid. Would go back.
This hotel had the lowest listed room rate on expedia, and lowest review scores as well. Yes, there were nicer properties around, and the room rates were double mine too. The front desk staff were friendly enough, the general staff too. My room was normal sized, with a queen bed, a/c, porch, and televsion with 4 stations, 2 were in english. Yes, I did see a lizard in my room. Yes, I have seen many lizards in many different rooms before. pool was clean and cool. Breakfast, included, was good enough to get seconds. Overall I was not disappointed and would go back.

On this particular part of the beach it was the nicest place to stay at, BUT it was a bit difficult to get to as the description for the hotel information isn't very "informing" The hotel is located on Tonsai Beach, (not mentioned, we had to figure it out ourselves) which is the beach over to Railay Beach. Once you get to Tonsai which is a beautiful short tailboat ride from Ao Nang Beach, the hotel is at the top of hill which you have to walk with all your luggage so pack light, but there's no need to leave that area and hang out in the main krabi town, everything you need and more is already there! its a beautiful location once you get there.
Although on a peninsula, visitors reach Railay Beach only by boat, 10 minutes from Ao Nang and 30 minutes from Krabi. The West Beach, surrounded by scenic limestone cliffs and tropical jungle, beckons sunbathers with soft sand and spectacular sunsets. The fantastic limestone cliffs challenge rock climbers from around the world, while instructors lead classes for less-experienced climbers.
