An Island Escape to Krabi

Krabi lies along the coast of the Andaman Sea in Southern Thailand, 800 kilometers south of Bangkok. Its plentiful natural attractions which include white sand beaches, crystal clear water, extensive coral reefs, caves and waterfalls, make it a perfect destination for those seeking romance, relaxation and some adventure.

Krabi boasts over 130 islands, including Koh Lanta and Phi Phi Island, which offer varied options for snorkeling and diving enthusiasts. Characterized by the dramatic limestone cliff formations that dot its landscape, Krabi is also a rock-climbing center with climbers from around the world coming to scale the rock faces around Railay Beach and Tong Sai Bay.

You can experience all these adventures and much more at Rayavadee. Spread over 26 acres of lush, tropical landscapes and surrounded by towering limestone, it is located on the jungle-topped cliffs at the edge of the Krabi Marine National Park. A major highlight here is the frequent spotting of the endemic Spectacled Langurs and Macaques.

It also boasts of hosting more than 120 types of plants and tropical trees and more than 250 types of ferns and herbal trees to discover. Its rich orchards are perfect for nature lovers, as you are surrounded by a variety of medicinal plants such as the Sea Lily, the White Bat Flower and the Spiral Flag, whose healing properties have been incorporated into Thai remedies for ailments. They also have the Lotus flower which has religious symbolism in Buddhist offerings and ceremonies. 

Consisting of luxurious bungalows designed in the traditional Thai style, Rayavadee is embraced the tropical gardens and coconut groves, just a few minutes’ walk from Railay and Phranang Beaches. The Umbrella Tree Court at Rayavadee overlooks Phranang Beach as well as by the pool next to Railay Beach.

You can spend a perfect island day here with a beach picnic. Schools of rainbow coloured fish in the shallow pristine waters lend a surreal look to this landscape. You and your partner will be two secluded souls on a stretch of isolated white sand stretch on an island. If you are looking to get away from the daily bustle, this is the perfect location.
