How to Get There
The hotel itself is great but those who are vegetarians - the hotel lacks food for these types of people. Don’t eat at The Grotto restaurant for dinner - they have a vegetarian set menu which is very expensive and all you get is fruit and vegetables which are supposedly barbecued but just tastes raw. I would not recommend for those who are vegetarians to stay here. The service also lacked where we waited 45 mins for a glass of wine. The Grotto is overly priced and the service is extremely poor!
We have been there for the 3rd time and our stay has been amazing again. Staff knew us from our previous stays. The pavillon was clean and well maintained. Service is excellent from front desk to pool and housekeeping. Food is delicious. They offer a wide variety of food from local cuisine to international. BBQ at the Grotto was very good. Pool is large and beach access is possible from the resort. At railey beach it is very busy and noisy during the day (beaches in Thailand are public). A highlight of the day is breakfast.
Staff is extremely friendly and helpful.
We will go there again!
No words can describe the experience of staying here. Everything was perfect. The hotel grounds are fantastic, with lots of nature all around, and facilities were awesome! Both beaches are excellent, the hotel's structure is amazing and the staff is so proactive that you don't even have to think haha :) They even have a library where you can borrow books and DVDs hehe.
Restaurants are excellent, location couldn't be better (we can access both Railay and Phranang beaches from the hotel), the room was the best we have ever seen and the overall experience was the best of our honeymoon!
We have booked directly with them, so the transfer to Krabi Airport was included, and we have received 2 complimentary massages as well - which were excellent as well! This is a unique experience in Railay, and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a good time there. Definitely worth the price!
What a lovely piece of paradise! Amazing scenery and lovely resort.
Unique kind of feel with huge site with well spaced out lodges. Definitely didn't feel crowded out.
The room was very comfortable and the whole place was immaculately clean.
The pool was lovely and the team there really looked after us.
Spa was a little piece of heaven.
2 main beaches to choose from so plenty room to go for a walk. We got a bit lazy in the heat so did use the services of the golf buggies to get around.
Just a few minutes walk along the beach from walking street so options to go somewhere else for a drink or a meal.
Minor downsides - definitely need mozzie repellent and difficult to escape the noise of the long tail boats.
Unbelievable and beautiful in every way. I have travelled the world and stayed at
some of the most luxurious resorts around the globe and I have to say this was one of the best experiences I have ever had at a resort. I want to specifically thank the General Manager Mr Chumpol who helped make our stay special and memorable. The villa on the beach was beautifully appointed, spacious and luxurious! The entire staff were attentive, courteous, and kind anticipating our every need. The pool, the grounds and magnificent view onto the ocean landscape is stunning. The beach itself is public and at times noisy with all the boats but the security at the hotel is excellent insuring people don’t wander onto the grounds.
All in all a 5 star pick, and even higher grades for customer service and Mr. Chumpol!!!
