What is one of the leading private villa luxury resorts in Thailand?

In the Land of a Princess

Located on the Phranang Cape southeast of Phuket, far away from daily doldrums lies a stunning seaside Thailand province called Krabi. It is a land of jungle-carpeted cliffs, lush rain forests, secluded grottos and white sandy beaches framed by swaying coconut tree and sparkling turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea .

Tucked into this landscape is a magical luxury beach resort, a member of the Leading Hotels of the World luxury collection of 5-star resorts. It is simply called Rayavadee. Translated, Rayavadee means “Land of a Princess.” According to ancient legend, a beautiful Hindu princess and her maidens were sailing off the Krabi when a ferocious storm tossed their vessel into the land. The shipwrecked royal princess took shelter in a cave that stands on today's Rayavadee Phra Nang Beach. Ravayadee is a resort befitting royalty. And, in honor of the princess, each month a procession of staff and guests leave small tokens of flowers and trinkets at an altar inside that cave.

Rayavadee is best described as spectacular, serene and secluded. Blending seamlessly with its environment, the resort takes great pride in its commitment to eco-friendly development and awareness. Deluxe guest pavilions and private villas are tucked among lush tropical paths with private gardens and lotus and fish-filled lagoons. Since Rayavadee is limited to 98 deluxe pavilion-style guestrooms and six villas and the resort can only be reached by its private motorboat, guests are assured of the highest levels of privacy, pleasure and personalized pampering. It might be tempting to hibernate in the haven of serenity and comfort of the pavilions and villas, but there is much more to savor at Rayavadee. The Rayavadee Spa rejuvenates guests with a menu of traditional Thai and contemporary international massages and treatments. The well-stocked library invites hours of relaxation with an extensive collection of reading material, DVDs and CDs. Four diverse dining venues are a sensory culinary experience. For active travelers, the sun, sand and sea offer plenty of diversions including: snorkeling, diving, kayaking, sailing, fishing and mountain or rainforest treks. Not-to be missed at Rayavadee: a seaside barbeque at Grotto Beach; watching sunset paint its daily masterpiece from the Rai Talay Terrace; a romantic moonlight stroll and a candlelight dinner on your private lanai. Isn't it time to escape the real world and experience Rayavadee?
