Discover faultless service and hi-tech gadgetry - classic Ritz-Carlton touches, along with plenty of Thai character in this retreat that lies by the Andaman Sea set on a private peninsula in Krabi.

Located just 20 minutes from Ao Nang sits the charming Phulay Bay, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve.

Coupling sophistication with delectable dining and natural beauty, this resort is a luxury break at its finest.

The hotel sits at the edge of a virgin forest, and each of the 54 villas and pavilions offers incredible vistas out across the gin-clear Andaman Sea or the immaculate grounds in which it is set. Guests are encouraged to kick back and relax making use of the incredible facilities – ranging from the large lagoon-style swimming pool to moonlit yoga, the fitness centre or the beach. The spa is world-class and guests can indulge in a treatment from the extensive spa menu which blends ancient and modern therapies and includes an exclusive treatment for couples and honeymooners.

The dining scene has been carefully thought out too with six restaurants offering a range of cuisines. Each restaurant has been designed to cater only to a small number of guests at a time ensuring that the experience is intimate and memorable. Wherever you choose to dine, rest assured that the ambience will be romantic and the views will be exquisite.

With an emphasis on personalised, experiences, guests can design their visit to perfectly suit their needs. A personal villa butler can organise a light BBQ lunch on the beach, a meditation class with local monks, a seaplane tour of the region’s dramatic scenery, or a boat journey to surrounding islands – the possibilities are endless.
