Luxury holidays in Krabi

Family Pavilion at the Rayavadee Resort, Railay
Doesn’t get much better than this: a private pool villa at the Rayavadee

The height of luxury in Krabi used to be a flushing toilet: these days, with the likes of Ritz-Carlton Reserve and Centara opening hotels here, private pool villas and custom made beds are the norm. If you would like to make your Thailand holiday special, there are any number of luxury hotels in Krabi – from small boutique style to grand 5 star palaces. These are usually best booked direct, rather than through an agent, as you will get better deals.

Suggested itinerary?

Day 1 – Private island hopping tour
Day 2 – Discover scuba diving lesson (private)
Day 3 – Spa + sunset cruise

Another option for the discerning traveller is to stay in a private villa in Krabi. These are independent properties, fully serviced and furnished to 5 star quality, but benefiting from complete privacy – no one else in the swimming pool, or disturbing your breakfast. In fact, if the thought of other people featuring in your holiday snaps is anathema, there are also plenty of options for private excursions by car or chartered boat – please see the link for further information.

Premium Tours

Below you will find some join-in tours, but ones that are considered to be “premium”, due either to small group size, itinerary, or mode of travel. They would be ideal for those who dislike “package tourism” but whose budget doesn’t stretch to fully private excursions.
