Krabi is a hidden gem that many discover – and fall in love with – while en route to the more wellknown islands of Ko Lanta and Ko Phi Phi. When they do visit, the luckiest check into Rayavadee. Accessed by stylish speedboat, the resort is surrounded on three sides by glorious sand beaches, and lush jungle greenery, imbuing a sense of tropical relaxation. Keeping with the special setting, Rayavadee has had an ambitious sustainability program since it opened. The resort may feel like a secret, but its restaurant is one of Thailand’s most renowned. Aptly named The Grotto, it is built into an ancient cave, giving it an ideal vantage point for guests who linger over cocktails while admiring a sunset-tinged sky.
