Rawi Warin Resort & Spa Koh Lanta

Rawi Warin Resort & Spa Koh Lanta

Tucked into the foothills of the Koh Lanta Yai and overlooking the crystal waters of Klong Tob Bay in the Southern part of the island.
If you are looking for a quiet, battery charging holiday, this may be exactly your place but if you are interested in an action packed getaway, this is not for you.

The hotel boosts an excellent children care room and boasts an fantastic home movie theater, which you need to book in advance but you can watch your own movies in it, in a mini movie theater setting.
Outside of the premises is Aunty Mae's bakery which has 50% off on all cakes between 7 and 8pm.

The resort features its own pier for guests arriving from Krabi town which has a newly renovated airport. It is also possible to arrange exclusive dining whereby specially created menus can be prepared in the privacy of one of the villas. There's also a personal butler and staff on hand.
With over 10,000 trees and flowers planted in the landscaped gardens, you are likely to spend much time foraging through the resort grounds itself.

The Rawi Warin has 180 guest rooms and villas and especially in off season the rates are very attractive.

Be pampered in luxury for reasonable prices off season and enjoy the great weather during high season and get well rested in this luxury resort.

Holiday Inn Resort, Koh Phi Phi

Holiday Inn Resort, Koh Phi Phi

It's been a while since I've been to Koh Phi Phi, almost 12 years ago, late 1998, when the movie 'The Beach' was being filmed there, around the corner in Mango Bay and I was doing my PADI Divemaster course on Koh Phi Phi.

A lot has happened ever since, including the 2004 Tsunami that had an impact on Phi Phi.

One of my friends stayed at the Holiday Inn and really enjoyed it. There are 77 bungalows available, including garden, superior, family and beach bungalows on 20 acres of land. Interestingly, the rooms come without TV sets!
If you arrive at Phi Phi's Tonsai Bay, pretty much the only way to get to the resort is by a long tail boat transfer, since the resort is located at the Laem Tong Beach, about 9km away from Tonsai Bay.

Due to its location on the secluded Laem Tong beach, it's a very quiet and idyllic stay, far away from the hustle and bustle of Tonsai. It's rather pricey but very pleasant to stay here.
