My husband and I stayed here as the last stop on our honeymoon. It was beautiful and the service was top notch. Our villa was huge! Private tub in its own room, huge bed (like a dream).... And the pool for the hotel has an amazing view, was huge, has lovely pool cabanas, and has a great swim up bar/restaurant....

Luxurious vacation would be how i would describe my stay. The resort is situated seaside with beautiful view and one of the most gorgeous sunset i have ever seen. The beach is not where you would swim though. However, the nice pool makes up for it a bit. They also offer free shuttle boat to an island nearby where you...

I stayed in Phulay Bay for a week and I cannot count the moments I will cherish forever! My butler Patty was very attentive and kind, always present and ready to offer assistance. I had dinner in the hotel and tried few restaurants in Ao Nang as well and I loved the opportunity to drive only 15 minutes to do...

First of all there's no beach, but rather a swamp in low tide. The hotel needs a lot of maintenance, mostly on the wood parts, both around the pool and in the rooms. The room is very big but with a lot of useless space, like two bath tubs, inside and outside, a huge bed (at least 4 m) but...

A few weeks back, I was searching for the "perfect" hotel for my 3 nights stay in Krabi... Despite the price, I got tempted and booked the Ritz Carlton reserve... Definitively worth the investment ! Because yes, it is an investment as you are going to remember your stay for long years... It is different, something we have never seen...

4 days and 3 nights in heaven, this is how I would describe Phulay Bay. The hotel feels like a small village due to the size of the property. We didn't see much people around even though it was full. As the management mentions when they welcome you on arrival "it's a peaceful corner of the world"... and it is!...

All the hotel lacked was a nice private beach to make it a perfect seaside resort. Everything was as expected after reading previous reviews on trip advisor. We had originally booked an ocean view villa but found out that they had upgraded us to the most expensive room type: the ocean view royal villa with a humongous pool. Pros: In-room...
