Entry to Rayavadee Resort
Rayavadee Resort is nestled between two beaches. Lounge chairs for guests are situated on the Phranang Beach, and offers a more secluded experience, as visitors to this beach have to take a longer walking path than from Railay Beach.
The infinity pool has sweeping views of the Andaman Seas and its towering limestone cliffs. If you happen to be around the pool in the early evening, you may see fruit bats in great swarms flying about, with monkeys trapezing on the palm trees just off the water.
Hotel grounds details
Brick waking paths guide guests to various points of interest throughout the property. The paths also serve as a transport for the golf carts to bring guests to their rooms and restaurants. Admittedly, these paths are tricky to navigate but the verdant surrounds make for a secondary sightseeing experience in and of itself.
There’s simply few places in the world where breakfast is served under limestone cliffs and azure waters. The local monkeys make their presence known to guests by swinging from the trees and hooting wildly.
