The luxury Krabi resort is only a recent phenomenon. These 5 star resort have only been created in the last 10 years. This means luxury Krabi resorts are the latest in design and meet the tastes of the most discerning. Where these resorts have found the headlines has been their location.
Krabi Province is the new place on the block that has not been on the radar of travellers looking for a luxury holiday. As the massive tourist destination of Phuket with it's luxury resorts has dominated the accommodation scene on the south and west of Thailand, few have ventured beyond. As the absorbing and beautiful natural scenery of Krabi has become more well known, the need for quality has ensured the development of a whole string of luxury Krabi resorts built along the shoreline north of Ao Nang.
Krabi Province is the underdeveloped hinterland of Phuket and has all the charms of the rustic and rural setting. Large mountains ranges, cliff scenery, caves, fjord-like inlets, and views out on to the Phang Nga Bay studded with islands create a land that is lost in time, a place where you are stimulated just to go for a drive in a boat or a car. Simple villages in the rubber tree and palm forests tend their crops and go on as they have been doing for decades.
The Rayavadee Ao-nang on Railay Beach, Cape Phra Nang was the first luxury Krabi resort to establish and set down the mark of excellence. Set amongst a natural amphitheatre of karst cliff scenery on Railay beach, this get away luxury property is worth looking at. Close to the 3 beaches of Railay, the National Park, the mountainous Phrang Peninsula and centered on the village famous for rock climbing, the Rayavadee Ao-nang has enjoys a unique luxury Krabi resort location. Elegant rooms, fine dining and a wonderful spa are the perfect back drop for one of Thailand's finest resorts.
In the last few years Krabi province has developed it's infrastructure and worked with international developers to create a new theme of luxury Krabi resort, often internationally branded, further up the coast from Ao Nang.
