Krabi / Rayavadee

We won’t exaggerate, but when the boat slips between the gateway of jungle-topped cliffs and slows upon reaching Rayavadee, well, let’s just say a gentle pinch may be in order.

Obscured beneath what seems to be their own bit of rainforest, kindred spirits to Robinson Crusoe feel right at home in their solitude. So intimate is the relationship between hotel and jungle, the domed villas snuggled between the greenery – not to mention the monkeys that swing overhead –  make life here feel blended with the endless flora and fauna.

At the tip of the Phranang peninsula, on Thailand’s Andaman coastline, Rayavadee is all about its unique environment and its restaurants are no exception. Unlike Crusoe, foodies dine on a fusion of Asian-meets-western fare both beach and poolside; but The Grotto restaurant takes the cake, sitting in a cave under an ancient cliff that makes the perfect frame for the beach and the waters beyond. Overindulgence finds it’s nemesis in the 26 acres of lush, tropical landscapes; where hikes up Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park’s highest peak, Hang Nak, and kayak trips around Ta Lane work off some calories. But, incidentally, also work up an appetite.

When to visit Thailand

Thailand is generally very hot and humid with distinct dry and rainy seasons. The best time to visit most resorts, including Phuket, Khao Sok, Krabi, Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, is from November to March, with the exception of Koh Samui which is best visited from December to August. However, with ever-changing weather patterns and excellent offers, it is well worth considering a holiday during the shoulder seasons.
