Accessible only by sea, the luxurious resort of Rayavadee sits to the south of Railay beach in the heart of the beautiful Phranang Peninsula on Thailand’s Andaman Coast. Surrounded by sheer cliffs that rise from the coast and sea, coconut groves, and tropical gardens, romantic Rayavadee blends seamlessly into its natural surroundings. The 94 opulent two-story pavilions and four ultra-chic private villas are dotted around the grounds, each boasting elegant interiors with a small number of pavilions featuring an outdoor jacuzzi – ideal for honeymooners.
Days can be spent sunning by the beachfront swimming pool or getting active at the fitness centre or tennis courts. Service is always top-notch and non-intrusive, with all needs attended to throughout your stay. Dine underneath limestone cliffs at The Grotto or enjoy lunch or dinner on the Raitalay Terrace with beautiful beach views. The two other restaurants, Krau Prahang serving classic Thai, and Raya Dining serving innovative five-star dishes, give diners plenty of choices. It’s also a short walk around the headland (or kayak for the adventurous) to the main beach of Railay where you can visit the local village, a small choice of other restaurants and local bars.
Rejuvenate at The Rayavadee Spa. The extensive range of therapies draw on ancient Thai healing traditions with treatments offers in luxurious, private surroundings. The shopping Boutique provides a treasure trove of unique items including local crafts, jewellery, and textiles. If pampering and poolside days start to tire, there are a number of activities you can enjoy from the resort including sea or land adventures (with nature hikes, snorkelling or elephant encounters to name a few), or unique experiences such as flower garland weaving, Thai cooking or fruit carving to enjoy in the comfort of the resort.
