Rayavadee on Krabi Island in Thailand

Sunset cocktails in an ancient limestone grotto, scuba lessons from your own private dive boat or a luxurious floral bath for two at the spa — all of this and more makes Rayavadee ideal for couples seeking a serene and secluded escape. Fashioned after a traditional southern Thai village, this exquisite resort resides on 26 acres on the Phranang Peninsula at the edge of Krabi Marine National Park. Mother Nature meets sumptuous creature comforts in two-story pavilions and free-standing villas embraced by palm trees and the sea. Lobster and Thai curies whet the appetite in enchanting dining rooms, while activities offer many an opportunity to bond with the one you love, from Champagne picnics on the beach to once-in-a-lifetime elephant rides.
