Unique, secluded resort with jaw dropping views

A member of The Leading Hotels Of The World, this romantic hideaway is accessible only by the hotels private speed boat and set within the famous National Marine Park. Being at the heart of the stunning Phranang Peninsula and spread over 26 acres of coconut groves and bordered by three beaches, Rayavadee boasts two-storey pavilion guestrooms hidden among the palm trees and surrounded by towering limestone cliffs to create a unique atmosphere reminiscent of an idyllic southern Thai village. The pavilions’ unique circular design blends perfectly with the resort's natural surroundings and with the resorts recent renovations throughout, luxury really does come as standard as well as fine cuisine in the resorts four restaurants.

Experience a remote tropical escape whilst relaxing by the swimming pool located amid the rainforest landscape overlooking the Andaman Sea; a walk along the sandy beach or alternatively enjoy a Thai cooking or fruit carving class. If this is all too much, then unwind with a relaxing first-class treatment at the Rayavadee Spa. When it’s time to watch the sunset, the best place to go for a drink is The Grotto; nestled under an ancient limestone cliff on the edge of Phranang Beach, this venue provides a unique cave setting for an evening cocktail before returning back later for a romantic meal. With perfect settings, luxury accommodation and amazing service, there really isn’t anything to fault about this perfect romantic setting.

Wedding in Paradise!

My husband and I got married here in July. We booked it with 1.5years notice and liased with Lisa from their Events/Sales team. As an event planner, it was very difficult to book an event (particularly my wedding!) without having ever seen the venue. But it was absolutely stunning and I am so glad that we did. On arrival at the airport, we were met by a friendly face, with a name card and driven to the Rayavadee private pier. They loaded our bags for us whilst we climbed onboard. They then offered cold towels and water. The boat journey was absolutely stunning and took around 15 minutes. On arrival at the hotel were greeted by name by the hotel manager and checked in. We made arrangements to meet Pin (our onsite events contact) the following day. We had a villa with a hydro-pool- room 105. The villa was beautiful, lots of space and with the most amazing complimentary cookies each day. The pool was a great feature to have. We could often watch the monkeys in the trees from our pool which was an amazing experience. The main pool has plenty of sunbeds and the staff bring around towels and water and sometimes ice lollies. We dined at the Grotto and had a perfect meal but the portions are very large. The ladies that worked there were fantastic, and they loved our daughter and nephew and knew them by name from the wedding. Now to the wedding- I had my hair done in the spa and had a really good experience. We also had a couples massage the day after which was heavenly. Great service. Pin was amazing and was there for every minute to help and assist- could not have done it without her. We had our ceremony in the grotto and our reception on the umbrella tree court. Just perfect! The food was such an amazing selection and we received so many compliments from our guests. We booked a singer and a fire show ourselves which the hotel accommodated. Honestly, it was the most amazing venue and experience and we will forever have the best memories. Looking forward to coming back to celebrate our anniversary. Tips- ask for a mosquito net to be placed over your bed. As its in jungle terrain- there are lots of them. Don't leave drinks etc outside your room, we left one for ten minutes and came back and a monkey had stolen it. Very large grounds- the staff can call for a buggy to drop you off.

Another memorable and excellent stay.........

As this was our third visit to this wonderful resort we have nothing but positives to extol; the welcome at the airport, transfer, check-in; all were excellently and efficiently handled, exactly as expected and as previously experienced. It was fantastic to be back at this wonderful resort and be able to relax fully in, what turned out to be, the peaceful and tranquil surroundings we remember from our very first visit; some days we were the only people in the pool and even the dreaded Long tail boats were not as prevalent. Thank yous go to the entire team again for everything and may we make special mention of Chumpol (GM) Susan ( Front Office ), Salma, Bond and the Activities team for a great experience on the James Bond Island day out, the Spa ladies who looked after us so well; especially Cat, Phang & Jum and of course not forgetting the entire team of F&B and Housekeeping staff for their devoted hard work. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
