Villa Macaque

Dear Chanel! We had a great time at your villa and felt very much at home. The transportation from the airport to the small boat went fine and ms Khun Sha made sure that we got on the right boat to Rayavadee. It was cool to jump off the boat at the beach! The tour around the premises could be a bit more thorough; ms Khun Sha did not show us all 3 restaurants which would have been helpful – but we found our way round the following days on our own. According to ms Khun Sha, the restaurant in which breakfast is served is also open for dinner in the evening – that is, however, not the case (they only serve breakfast). It would be very helpful too to see the beach and to be told about the small shopping/food street at the end of the beach, where one can buy daytrips to ie. Phi Phi and other islands. The 2 guys at the villa were both very kind but their English is very poor so it was difficult to talk to them if we needed something. But they did a great job in cleaning the room everyday, fresh towels at the pool etc. We were told just to call them if we wanted something but we never really figured out how to call them (we did not get their phone no) but we saw them everyday, which was fine. A great stay all in all. Regards, Jens

Amazing stay, we wanna come back for sure!

The staff is the best part (Kop Kun Ka Jenny, Patrick and Kuhn Sha ??) – we had a wonderful treatment in the house and common areas. The breakfast is in the hotel and you have to walk a long way to reach, but it is amazing – lots of options and everything is delicious. There are lot of people in Phranang beach (coming from tours) to visit the place. So, these people leaves lot of trash in the beach and that’s a pity! Also, as we stay in the villas, we are not allowed to use part of the hotel facilities (such as cars, pools, kayak).

Awesome and peaceful stay

The boat brought us literally right to the door step!!! Very well kept and clean environment. Staff are extremely helpful and attentive – to the extent, it is similar to a butler level of service ala krabi style. It helps that it is located at the nicer part of the island.

Parfait établissement romantique pour couples

La situation géographique est un plus par rapport au rayavadee, direct sur plage et le petit déjeuner pris au rayavadee comble le bien être de cet etablissement.

– Adrien Kurz (Guadeloupe)

Wonderful & quiet place to stay. Everyone is kind and considerate.

Excellent. Highly recommend.

Amazing place!!! Highly recommend it. Had the breakfast included that we took at the Ravayanee hotel. In the bedroom, the air-co is blowing directly in direction of the bed which is a bit inconvenient. The beach is so popular that boats make a lot of noises… but we knew it.

This place was heaven. The view was simply stunning and the staff were such a pleasure!

The rooms was exquisite, the decor was superb. Wasn’t there for long enough.

Sehr sauber und komfortabel. Jedoch keine Empfehlung wegen des Lärms. · Viel zu laut. Überhaupt keine Empfehlung. Der Lärm von den zuvielen Booten ist absolut unerträglich. Das keine übertriebene Rückmeldung.

– Michael Wunder (Germany)

Thanks Chanel, the stay was really lovely.
I really enjoyed the villa and the service.
There is the older gentleman who takes care of the villa he’s really amazing and very professional.
He was very service oriented and was always present whenever we needed him.

Best hotel in Krabi

Perfect location, wonderful staff, very good accommodation, very clean, fantastic view

Breakfast was ok, but basic

– Pieter Lijten

Blissful beyond belief!

Everything was exceptional and the staff was incredible. Like having our own private luxury estate right on the ocean. I could walk right outside of my room and wade into the warm gorgeous ocean waters. They thought of everything and tended to our every need.

Although it lacked an on-site restaurant, the free breakfast was great and in the end we liked not having other tourists on the property.

– Ian Drew

Staying at the Macaque Villa and Languor Villa was the best decision we made. It is like living in paradise. The villa was clean, the staff was attentive and helpful, and the property’s backdrop was to die for. Highly recommend!

– Anisha Johnson

The place was absolutely stunning, the views were stunning, and the staff was the best that we have ever encountered. The only place my wife and I will stay when we come back to the Railay/Phra Nang area. The staff was the best and were always available and accommodating. No other place comes close and you’re wasting your money if you stay anywhere else.

Thank you once again for our wonderful stay at Cowrie Villas! We had an amazing time there, and received some much needed rest and relaxation. Jinni and Pat were so kind and helpful, greatly enhancing our experience.

– Renee Turner

The room, the shower, the pool, the quietness overall, their politeness and respect since our first step at the beach. Was everything amazing!

– Jonas Rodrigues Silva

Thank you, Chanel. Everything has been wonderful. The service of the staff, the space, the amenities, the views, and the wildlife has been amazing! We are very grateful for the experience and would recommend our friends and family to come here. Thank you!

Великолепно!!!! Потрясающе!!!

– Olga Ermolaeva

I have travelled all over the world and this was the best place I ever stayed. They had two staff member literally there just for us and cooked anything we wanted. The location has the best view of the most beautiful beach. Everything was outstanding and far exceeded my expectations. There was nothing I did not like.

– David

Место, обслуживание, сама вилаа, все было супер.
Кондиционер дул прямо на кровать. И было только два деления или сильно или слабо, приходилось на ночь отключать.

Location, service, vilaa itself, everything was great.
The air conditioner blew directly on the bed. And there were only two divisions, either strong or weak, we had to turn it off at night.

– Oksana Eremenko

The concept is wonderful. You have a small serviced villa directly facing one of the more special beaches in Thailand. There is a slightly larger resort next doors and you may use some of their facilities like their beautiful restaurant and spa. The service is great. They will arrange pretty much anything you need from groceries to private transport to private chef, etc.

The service team is so good at anticipating your needs that sometimes you wish that they were less around. The setting is very romantic and you may wish for more privacy at times.

– Andre Muller

The view here was amazing! and the shared living room was a pleasant surprise for me. No one was there so I had the entire place to myself.

– Andy Zhu

We dwell on love with this beautiful property. right by the beach. stunning views. beautiful surrounding amd the sweetest staff you can wish for. All was lovely

– Heikal Sinn

Absolument TOUT ! C’est le PARADIS … Je le conseille à tout le monde, la situation, les chambres, la vue, la piscine, l’accueil, tout est absolument parfait !
Absolument RIEN !

Absolutely EVERYTHING! It’s PARADIS… I recommend it to everyone, the location, the rooms, the view, the pool, the reception, everything is absolutely perfect!

– Christopher Davin

Very friendly staff &super Nice decorated villa’s. Definitely recommend the master villa with seaview. Pay a bit extra to get a whole lot more! The AirPort pick-up & boat transfer to the villa is included & well organized. Breakfast is in the hotel next to iT, great choices & good food. Nice villa setup, room stand alone rooms/ bathrooms & in the middle a shared living room & pool. Another big + for the personnel @the villa…. they help you with everything! We’ll come back! 1. To get to “Town” there is no free shuttle boat service, so you’ll have to pay for the boat trips to town… not a big thing… but just so you are aware. During evening 5pm boat to town & return to the villa costed us 3000,- BHT 2. High tide water makes the beach dissapear, not a problem, but you’ll have to be aware. 3. There is a pool & separate living room @ the villa setup. While it beautifull, we didn’t make use of the shared living room…. you’re in Thailand… living outside ✌? The pool is not too small & not too big… just nice. Small area is a bit shallow, perfect for children. The pool could use more frequent cleaning tho…. but what to expect with threes above & a beautiful nature environment. 4. Food, option to eat: A. At the hotel next to it. B. 2 long tail food boats in front of the door. Great food but closes at 5 a 6 PM. C. The Grott (cave restaurant), looks great but have not eaten there… D. Go to town with the long tail boat. E. Book the villa Chef upfront.. 5. If you book a boat trip tour @the villa, make sure you triple confirm wich islands you want to see to avoid miscommunications. We visited the 4 islands, e.g. chicken island etc Not worth it… or you like swimming with 1000 toerist on 5m2 looking at the same 3 yellow fish….???‍♂️ 6. We didn’t mind, but you have to be aware… the beach where the villa is located is a toerist beach… meaning; many long tail boats in front of the door, picking up & dropping off toerist.

adjust the food system or reduce the price of accommodation

location on one of the most beautiful beaches in Thailand, friendly staff, cleanliness of the villas and privacy
very very bad breakfast:((. I would expect to see such a 2-star hotel, but not here. I think this is a hoax on the part of booking to write “great breakfast included.” why can’t you agree with a neighboring repair and go to breakfast there? on food in general. we couldn’t book a table in a restaurant of a neighboring resort, we had to order everything to the room from the same restaurant (and the prices there are not low.) Also, the staff of the neighboring rayawadee resort (restaurant manager) behaved unprofessionally, starting to literally kick us out rudely. the fruits in the welcome basket were half rotten, when asked to replace or bring others, they brought exactly one fruit.

– Anastasiia

Just stay in Rayavadee.

The views are nice.

The staff werent aware that I would check in that day. Everything was unprepared. The interior was worn, some cabinets had holes in them. Staff looked very anxious. The staff are constantly around and on the way. We were staying with our family and friends and a small child. At one point a staff member noticed our 2 year old playing with a drinking glass and ripped it out of her hands. I am sure that they didnt mean any harm, but its just poor communication skills.

– Tõnis

Good, but not excellent.

The most beautiful view in Krabi, you pay for it. Villas and furniture are quite worn ( Photos of the rooms look more shiny than the real rooms), showers and toilets are new and clean though, pillows are horrible, but towels and bathrobes are amazing quality. I will come next time with my pillows. Stuff is very sweet and helpful, really nice and caring people. Some small things could be improved easily and will give the property a better look – like a broken wooden gate to the sea. I will come back, still one of the best options in Krabi to stay especially for a big family.

Villa Languor


– Vincent Genoud (Switzerland)

La villa avec vue sur la mer est sublime rien à redire, équipements très haut de gamme, vue et niveau de confort, vue et intimité.

Les indications pour y accéder car c’est tout simplement à l’arrière du Rayavadee. Aux heures d’affluence des bateaux et en cas de marée haute les bateaux refusent de contourner l’île pour accéder aux villas par la mer et pour cause les villas se retrouvent isolées ce qui n’est pas précisé. Réservation à 32 000 puis confirmation à 36200 le prix est excessif et le principe me déplaît. Pas d’eau chaude pendant 2 jours.. Vraiment aux antipodes de la qualité de la villa vue mer.

– Cyril Renard

The property is very nice, we booked the entire villa with pool. Location is amazing, right on the beach. Even the beach is crowded during the day doesn’t really bothered us, all boats leave at late afternoon and the beach go back to be very silent. Not very convenient for people who want to be in the crowd but perfect to rest. Full of monkeys and wildlife is a beautiful experience for people that visit Thailand for the first time. Staff is caring and nice.

Experience has been great but for sure overpriced.

Languor Villa – Junior Suite

What an amazing experience! The staff was exceptionally responsive and kind. The property was gorgeous, updated and perfectly located on the beach. We can’t wait to return again soon.

– Farid Nouroullaev (United States)

It was indeed a great stay, we enjoyed all aspects of our stay as we felt home.
I will give 5 stars to your staff, they accommodated all of our requests.
Couple of things i would like to highlight : the hot water was not working during the last 2 days, the color of the water was brownish, i believe there is a need of a filter.
Thank you once again for hosting us.


– Salah & Amira

L endroit est absolument fabuleux et le personnel professionnel et serviable
Le seul problème de PHRA NANG qui n’est pas lié à l’hôtel est le bruit des Long Tail Boats à moteur qui raisonnent toute la journée !

– Stephane Tuvi

Not enough words to say how perfect it is!!!
OMG, words can not describe what kind of feeling you have when you enter this location for the first time. The surroundings en view are exquisite!! The service is great and the staff is so friendly! The pool is warm and nice! The rooms are to die for with a perfect view! We had the sea view suite and would book it again, next time with all of our kids!! It was the perfect location. Thank you for the lovely experience!

是ravayadee的private property,共用了餐馆,出入不方便。价格有点小贵

A superb beach resort hotel. The beach is just when you go out. The sea will submerge the beach in the middle of the night, and there is no way out. It feels like a paradise. The staff are very friendly
It is a private property of ravayadee, sharing a restaurant, it is inconvenient to get in and out. The price is a bit expensive
