As a leading hotel of the world, the Rayavadee is a luxury beachside resort that boasts the best location in the country: you're surrounded by white-sand beaches, extensive reefs, Insta-worthy waterfalls, and smack-bang in the middle of the jungle. Although it's situated in Krabi, a top tourist destination spot in Thailand, the location couldn't be more private. In fact, it's so secluded, you can only access the resort by Rayavadee's private speed boat (how very James Bond of you). This means no crowded beaches, over-booked restaurants, or a sea of tourists everywhere you go - only pure tranquillity.

The resort comprises of 96 two-storey pavilions and 5 villas spread across the serene grounds. The spacious pavilions are decked out with your own living room, expansive bedroom, a private deck and a floor-to-ceiling bay window overlooking the tropical surroundings. 

And if you need another excuse why this should be your next vacay, make it the food. Rayavadee has four restaurants to dine from, each set in idyllic locations ('The Grotto' coming in as the front-runner) and includes a range of flavours from Thai, seafood and western cuisines.
