Set as it is on a beautiful stretch of Southern Thailand’s dramatic Phranang Peninsula, the only way to reach Rayavadee is by boat; its three gorgeous shorelines, crowned by vast jagged limestone cliffs, are just a hint of what’s to come. This resort is a real Thai treasure, where guests cannot help but be captivated by the natural beauty of the landscape, white sand beaches and the sapphire coloured waters of the Andaman Sea.
Taking inspiration from the natural beauty of a traditional Thai village, the award-winningly designed, two-storey pavilions are set amidst lush gardens, with floor-to-ceiling bay windows accenting the surrounding foliage. This is a tropical wonderland, with beautiful plants and wildlife on vivid display throughout the resort. In most accommodations, relaxing living rooms are situated on the ground floor, whilst bedrooms are on the upper floor, accessed by a curved staircase. Interiors feature dark woods complemented by neutral tones and beautiful Thai handcrafted details. This is undoubtedly a romantic hideaway setting, perfect for a honeymoon.
Where Rayavadee really wows is with its unique scenery and landscape. With activities such as fascinating nature walks through the resort, and excursions to the stunning nearby locales of Phi Phi Island, Hong Island, Poda Island and Ao-Nang, you’ll never be short of smile-raising experiences to enjoy. Whether guests choose to be active and hike the region on foot, take to the crystal clear waters and sail or dive the marine-rich sea - they will be well rewarded. Of course, if it is relaxation that guests are seeking, they can simply relax and admire the beautiful scenery from the privacy of the resort, their own Pavilion or Villa, or the inviting spa. There’s also a Fitness Centre, tennis and squash courts, plus a small but beautifully stocked boutique. Guests can also take part in cultural classes, such as Thai cooking, batik printing and traditional fruit carving.
