9.1 Fantastic based on 185 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel: Exquisite villas. Beautiful views. Railay Beach's finest.

Rayavadee is an astonishingly beautiful resort.  It really is difficult to describe the natural environment that surrounds this 5-star resort adequately in words.  You need to see the pictures for yourself.

These two-story, private pavilions are tastefully decorated in traditional Thai style, offering the finest facilities.

Expensive, but if you are planning a special romantic holiday with your boyfriend or husband, then consider the Rayavadee.

other areas in Krabi

While the water in these lesser-known areas in Krabi is not good for swimming, the laid-back environment offers visitors a range of interesting activities such as kayaking, fishing and exploring the local village.

Beautiful views.

123 Moo 3, Tumbol Nongtalay, Tubkaek Beach, Krabi | map

8.9 Very Good based on 206 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel: Beautiful views. Peaceful & private. Boutique choice.

The first thing to point out is that The Tubkaak is an ‘away from it all’ resort (albeit with some interesting local exploration options).

The nearest town of any size is around 30 minutes by car and the resort itself is relatively small.  But it is beautiful.

The views over the Ko Hong archipelago are picture-perfect.  Watching the sunset over the distant islands whilst sipping a cocktail is magical.

We can testify that both staff and management offer an exceptionally warm welcome to gay guests.  This is a place to bring a boyfriend and a couple of good books.
