Rayavadee, Krabi, Thailand

This our 10th visit to Rayavadee. Guess we like it. The gracious and familar staff treat us very well. Staff members greet me as Mr. Tom or Kuhn Tom.  Celeste is called Maria (her real 1st name as in her passport). Always fun to chat it up with the staff. You can do this in the off season.


Leaving Krabi Town on Rayavadee speedboat. 20 minutes on Andaman Sea to resort.

The Asian Tsunami took its toll. The wave hight was only 24″ on to the resort, on the West facing beaches, through the resort, out the East facing beach. All outdoor furniture disappeared. All fresh water ponds became salt water and full of sand. Half the plant life died due to the salt. No guests or staff were killed fortunately.

After the tsunami, the resort was closed for 6 months while the entire staff became gardners replanting the many acres of land. Today, the resort is more beautiful than ever. Animal life abounds. The chirps and croaks go on all night.


Every room is a free standing 2 story round building with a roof resembling a German WW1 helmet. Living room and half bath downstairs, bedroom and full bath upstairs.
