“clean, comfortable with large garden setting”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

stayed last october, cheap rates due to low season, rooms were clean, decent. aircon works perfectly. booked a standard thai room with balcony. i liked the grounds, full of trees and plants. about 5-8 mins walk to railey west and phang nga cave. food is average, but choices for food is a plenty around the resort. has a little pool but didnt try it though.

What you must first understand about Railay, is that although it is geographically part of mainland Krabi, as a result of the incredible limestone karsts the only means of access is by longtail boat.  Because of this isolation, prices for everything are notably higher than most other places in Thailand (e.g. Sunscreen lotion is AUD$30 for 175mL).

Having now set the scene, if, in addition to a bed, you are also seeking a "resort" experience (pool, gardens, breakfast, housekeeping), then Anyavee is by far the cheapest place you will find in the whole of Railay.  I know this because my partner and I stuck our head into every single resort in Railay to get a feel for prices.  Certainly the other Railay resorts have better quality rooms and facilities, but our experience at Anyavee was more than comfortable and we would gladly return.



ROOM:  We stayed in one of the wooden bungalows with balcony.  The doors had a few small gaps, but the air-conditioning was very powerful, and a mosquito net was provided for the (HUGE, comfortable) bed.  The furnishings were minimal but pleasant - dark woods and white linen against the green of the gardens, and the room contained a fridge, safe, and wardrobe (a rarity in Asia).  The bathroom was the weakest point of the bungalow, with fluro lighting and lots of gaps to the outside, but even then it only raised a small blip on my sensitive "eww! ick!" travel radar.  Our water randomly stopped working twice during our six-night stay, however this was remedied each time within 15 minutes of a call to reception (albeit without explanation).


FACILITIES:  The pool was clean, although the water was a little on the warm side.  There were plenty of poolside lounge chairs, and both the pool and its surrounds had sufficient shade to allow us to escape the hot sun. 

Free wifi was available in the reception, restaurant and pool areas; not super fast, but adequate for most tasks.  Our bungalow was located close to the reception, so we were fortunate enough to be able to sneakily access wifi from inside our room.

Included in the room rate was a fairly extensive buffet breakfast, with eggs cooked to order.  A restaurant was also within the grounds of the resort although we never tried it out.


SERVICE:  The resort staff were pleasant enough, although the service a tad perfunctory.  Housekeeping was thorough and unobtrusive; we never had cause to complain.


LOCATION: Anyavee is located on Railay East beach, which is definitely the poorer cousin. You cannot swim at this "beach"; at low tide the mangroves stretch out a good few hundred metres, and at very high tide the beachside walkway floods (so wear sandals, not shoes).  Fortunately Railay is tiny, and so the lovely Railay West and Phra Nang beaches are only an easy 5-10 minute walk away.  On the up side, the bars and restaurants in Railay East have far more soul than in Railay West, although if you really want to party it up you're best headed to Ton Sai.

Room Tip: Bungalows are worth the extra money.  A bungalow close to the reception area will give you free (sne...

Don't go there ... I forgot my mobile phone under my pillow and it was stolen. The conditionner was half used when we arrived in the room and the mugs were dirty. I would definitely not recommend this hotel.

If you are on a budget like me do not stay here either find something cheaper in ao nang and come here for a day trip or skip railay altogether as its nothing fantastic. We had a standard air con room so I cant comment on the bungalows. Our room looked unclean and dated, I have stayed in a 1 star hotel in Vietnam which was immaculate no way does this hotel deserve 3 stars. We stayed two nights as we had pre booked on agoda. I couldn't wait to leave, poorest sleep I've had in a long time as our double bed was two twins pushed together. As we checked out we saw a couple check out a room and walk away to another hotel and they were backpackers! The pool is nice but sun beds not cleaned. Last morning I woke up to find bugs in the bed! I'm covered in bites that I presumed were moxie bites but they could be from the bugs in the bed!!! I'm now in koh samui in a 2 star resort right on the beach for cheaper than anyavee and guess what? It's clean! Looks fresh and bed comfy what else could I want. This is the only negative review I have ever given a hotel in my life. They need to scrub these rooms clean and fumigate beds like the one I had.

There must be other better rooms in Railey for the 4000 baht per night we payed here!

Bungalow is small and not so clean. Breakfast terrible. There is a tv in the room but who cares about that. Our safe didn't work and they never fixed it even though we told them.

Would not stay here again.

the anyavee is located on the east side of railay beach. to get here we had to take a longtail from the mainland jetty for a boatride of 20 or 30mins depending on the waves. once we arrived since it was low tide, we had to walk a good half mile through sand and slippery moss to get on land. once on land we had to walk another half mile to the anyavee. do not if you can, bring any luggage, if you can bring a backpack just because you will be doing all the carrying yourself when you get there. or arrive during high tide which can vary each day, but from 12 noon to 3 pm you can be confident you can arrive all the way up to the sidewalk of the anyavee. overall, the hotel is pretty standard. simple and clean, nothing fancy. breakfast is pretty good with a buffet every morning. there are many water activities to do on the west side of railay beach. pretty much numerous tourist when we were there last week, most of the beaches were swamped with humans!! go during the low season, it will be more worthwhile.
night life is pretty relaxed and there is the joy's beach bar which is run by two brothers, janet and joy....yes....they are men, not women, but a great bar with good pizzas!!
overall, i like a more sedate environment with less tourist running around like ants....i would not return to krabi for that reason.

Room Tip: bungalows by the front office much quieter, just because the club music will be really loud otherwis...

Our wooden bungalow was lovely, clean and had great air con although expensive for what it is but it seems that is the norm for Railay now. The location is good for East beach of Railay and takes 10 mins to walk to the West beach. There are bars and eating places near but far enough away that they don't disturb.

I would suggest that if you can get a room without breakfast then do and save yourself the money. The breakfast was awful - pre cooked rubbish left to stand replenished by miserable staff! I would suggest going to the nearby eateries and have more choice of freshly cooked breakfast food.

The pool is a bonus although not the cleanest it is adequate to have a dip to cool off.
