Why this hotel?: Exquisite villas. Beautiful views. Railay Beach's finest.

Rayavadee is an astonishingly beautiful resort. It really is difficult to describe the natural environment that surrounds this 5-star resort adequately in words. You need to see the pictures for yourself.

Expensive, but if you are planning a special romantic holiday with your boyfriend or husband, then consider the Rayavadee.

Krabi · hotels in other areas

Hotels in ‘more remote’ areas of Krabi are not as popular, but offer a peaceful environment, beautiful scenery. Visitors can enjoy many activities such as kayaking, fishing and exploring the local village.

Why this hotel?: Beautiful views. Peaceful & private. Very gay-friendly.

The first thing to point out is that The Tubkaak is an ‘away from it all’ resort (albeit with some interesting local exploration options). The nearest town is around 30 minutes by car and the resort itself is relatively small. But it is beautiful.

The views over the Ko Hong archipelago are picture-perfect. Watching the sunset over the distant islands whilst sipping a cocktail is magical.

We can testify that both staff and management offer an exceptionally warm welcome to gay guests. This is a place to bring a boyfriend and a couple of good books.
