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.
The hotel is located near the beach and it has got 2 swimming pools. One right beside the beach (perfect for sunset)and one in the hotel premises.
Our room (Privacy Cottage) is a pretty decent and large room with all the required and necessary facilities. However the outdoor jacuzzi was a disappointment as it was quite dirty due to it being outdoor. Warm and cold water shower is also available. One particular good thing is they provide complimentary torchlight, umbrellas, beach mats and straw carrier bags for us to use it during our stay.
Occasionally you will see large horde of monkeys playing and moving from one tree to another. Just don't be alarmed.
The hotel stretches from Railay West beach to Railay East beach which is very convenient.
The staff are generally well-mannered and buggy service is available to transport travellers with their huge bags to check-in/out.
We stayed at the Rayavadee for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon and could not have been happier with the service we received. We had the best airport transfer we have ever had followed by a welcoming drink. We were then taken to our villa and it was lovely. We wanted to go on some trips whilst staying there but it was hard to fit the hotel trips in with our three day stay. The gentleman in charge of guest services recommended for us to walk down nammo beach and see what there was to offer there. We are so glad we did we got two trips each for the price of one per person at the hotel, I'm sure there's would have been of higher quality however we enjoyed it just the same. We ate at both the grotto and the Thai restaurant and our favourite was the Thai restaurant. All the staff were lovely and more than happy to help. We would go back but probably only for the same amount of time as you are restricted at night as to what you can do.

Amazing stay. Loved it here. Brand new and clean (apart from the little ants but that's simple - don't leave food open in your room just keep everything in the fridge its not a problem - its the same everywhere. Be really careful if walking around anywhere when its wet if you're wearing thongs or rubber soles as the new walkways are like ice skating if you're not careful. You learn to shuffle your feet - and I'm generally a fast walker - it can be that slippery. Also the new paths in some areas are uneven - with plants growing in-between at a lower level - its not the most practical pathway.
We booked this resort based on the recommendation of a friend who had stayed next door. The location was excellent with easy access to the beach. Perhaps we were there at low season but the beach never seemed overly crowded. It was great fun to see the changing landscape from high tide to low tide.
The restaurant was overlooking the water. It provided very nice food. We mostly enjoyed local Thai meals so can't comment on their western fare menu.
We noted that there didn't seem to be any alcohol on site so the restaurant was quieter at night as probably most guests went elsewhere wanting alcohol with their meal.
We chose the Deluxe Building which was built in 2013. The room was beautiful with a very nice bathroom including glass walk in shower and deep soaker tub.
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.
