          Quiet Hotel ... Excellent Staff ...”

          Rimlay staff are very friendly and attentive to detail, Location is away from hustle and bustle or Ao Nang, Perfect Weekend Getaway

          Rimlay Villa Review Booked a last minute two day break for me and my girlfriend staying over a Thursday and Friday night. We booked via the Agoda.com website at a very good rate. We had emailed in advance and a taxi was organized by the hotel to pick us up from the airport and bring straight to the hotel (charge 600 thai baht) which is the standard rate from the airport to the the hotel location area. First things first location. This hotel is NOT located at Ao Nang but is slightly more northwest, but it is approx 7-10 minute drive from the main Ao Nang waterfront area, but the location is still perfect bliss, its located on the beach which is picturesque, yet there is a significant tidal change but it is still a quiet and a wonderful setting from where you can stroll or jog up and down the clean and tidy beach at your leisure. Owing to its slightly isolated location perhaps renting a moped or motorbike from a nearby rental shop to get around without needing to get taxi and give you some independence. The hotel has daily drop offs to the Ao Nang area at no extra cost. The rooms are immaculately clean and very well maintained. Rooms have tv with Fox, BBC and local thai channels. There is Wi Fi around the entire hotel area. Rooms have fridge, tv, air con, safe and other standard facilities. Some room rates include a nice breakfast which is served at the reception area which is standard and tasty and the perfect size to start your day. Staff are amazingly helpful and friendly and are willing to help with any request. They made the staff very enjoyable and were willing to help us find and book day excursions with the various tour companies. They really made the stay very enjoyable. Want a perfect romantic or chill out weekend away from the hustle of Ao Nang. Rimlay Villa is perfect!! Can't wait to go back

          Wouldn't go anywhere else!”

          The location is beautiful away from the crowds but just ten minutes by boat from Railay. The grounds are immaculate, and the staff are hard working and extremley nice. The food is great.

          This was our second stay at Rimlay Villas. We prefer a clean, comfortable, affordable place to an overpriced, crowded, luxury hotel. The staff and location are big selling points. The food is better than any restaurant we have tried. They have a nice courtesy breakfast and twice day van to Aonang. The rooms are comfortable and are kept very clean. The grounds are immaculate. They have a nice pool that is shaded much of the late afternoon. They are able to arrange for a local van to pick up from Krabi airport for 800 Baht. All these things made our week long stay fantastic. It is a few minutes down the beach to the Ao Na Mao Pier where long tail boats leave on the half hour for Railay Beach. 100 Baht per person. It is a quick 10 minute ride. We were glad to be able to have our day on the popular Phra Nang beach and return to our quiet place and enjoy the pool and the great food they have at the restaurant. I believe Rimlay was fully booked, but we still seemed to have the place to ourselves. It is great for privacy. Really couldn't be better.

          An experience that no one should miss out on...”

          The Ocean View from the villa, The friendliest staffs and The beautiful Room

          Albeit a frequent traveller, it was a first time stay in Krabi, Thailand. Emails were promptly replied with arrangements of airport transfer and such. Arriving at Krabi Airport, someone was already waiting for us for pick up with my name on the placard. Journey to the hotel took about 30 short minutes. Upon arriving at the villa, the first thing i noticed was the great ocean view. The villa Manager, who introduced herself as Mama Nui, checked us into our villa promptly. A beautiful room facing the ocean - what else could one ask for? My partner and i were very happy. The room was cozy, bright.. The porch had ashtrays which was important as i smoked. The rooms were fairly new .. aircon was cold.. and theres even a wall fan for those who cant stand the aircon.. cool. Pillows were great.. and if you prefer a lower pillow, they have it upon request too.. A safe box.. big wardrode.. Led Tv.. Just Awesome. As we were pretty famished from our trip to Krabi, we went on to have our lunch at the villas restaurant. Though not a very extensive menu, it was sufficient enough to make me tummy happy. The In house cooks really do a good job in preparing the food. Horse riding is available near the villa.. so one could see them gallopping by on the beach in front of the villa.. Sight seeing arrangements to Hong, Chicken, 4 Islands or Phi Phi Islands can be done by the villa.. Throughout my stay, i rented motorbikes from the villa, was well looked after by the friendliest of staffs, and special mention to Mama Nui.. She arranged for a Nice BBQ dinner for me and my partner and with herself and Husband the night before i checked out.. It was the eve of my birthday. She prepared awesome Steak.. with potatoes, prawns and corns with special butter! On the day of check out, while having breakfast in the restaurant... i was Surprised with a birthday cake! Nothing but wonderful memories of this place.. Thank you Rimlay Villa for the awesome stay. Will be back. Alfi Duran

          What a wonderful hidden gem”

          view at the ocean, lovely staff, family like atmosphere

          Wow, what a stay! Rimlay villa is situated on a secluded beach off the main tourist area, but only a 10min drive to Ao Nang. Rimlay villa consists of eight double bungalows, of which 4 are facing the ocean directly in first row, a pool and a lovely restaurant. The lady, who is running the place, is very organized and very friendly although you might have a more "bossy" first impression, she is definitely welcoming and very customer oriented. She negotiated a really good price for a boat trip to Phi Phi islands and even gave us useful advice what and where to pay the national park entrance fee. We even got a free shuttle with some of the guests and hotel staff for Loy Kratong celebration in Krabi town. All staff members are so lovely and we felt like part of the family! We were even involved in the creation of the loy kratong boats, which was a special experience! We loved the silence and the more remote location despite little local shops and some other restaurants are in walking distance. We wish the owner and all staff members all the best and are looking forward to return some day. P.S. For me as a cat lover it was heaven (three cats to be pet every day :-)).

          Thailand dream”

          Rimlay Villas is exactly what i had always pictured Thailand to be. There are currently 14 small villas ,about 180sf each, with private baths, A/C, fans & fridge. Each villas has a veranda, wjere i spent many hours watching the longtail boats at mooring and at work. Such a classic Thai image! The ocean in this area is tidal, so swimming is best at high tide, though possible always. We brought water shoes, which made ocean swimming more comfortable, though not necessary. The water is warm and has no surf and is shallow quite a way out so really great for kids also. At low tide there were always local kids walking out to look for shells and other valuable finds. There is a small restaurant/bar with a small but delicious traditional Thai menu (though you can get a burger and fries if youuou need a break). Breakfast is included, always with fresh fruit and strong Thai coffee. The staff, particularly Towan, is wonderful. Their first concern is your comfort and experience. pretty much anything you ask for they will go out of their way to accommodate - be it a BBQ on the beach, a massage in the room, or a ride to Ao Nang. They have 2 free shuttle into Ao Nang twice a day and then you find you're own ride back, about 200 bhat. Though you can catch a "city bus" (basically a bigger tuk tuk) outside the villas to town for about 20 bhat, but good luck finding one back. It's about a 10 minute ride to the downtown part of Ao Nang where there are countless restaurants, bars, hotels, massage & souvenir shops. We enjoyed visiting there bit loved getting back to our "slice of heaven" each day.

          Peaceful, away from the Ao Nang main strip”

          Friendly and helpful staff, pool view/ocean view room with balcony, free shuttle to AoNang twice per day

          We stayed 6 nights at Rimlay Villa and had a beautiful time. Our villa (as all villas) faced the ocean and we sat on our balcony and enjoyed watching the pool and the ocean most of our stay there. It was hard to leave our balcony as just that was peaceful and nice! There was a free shuttle to Ao Nang main strip twice a day (11am & 6pm) which we took advantage of. Coming back via motorcycle tuk-tuk was $6. We didn't want to stay on the Ao Nang main strip so this was perfect for us. I loved the staff and the owners there, they were sweet and attentive and very accommodating. We rented a scooter from them and rode around the area and visited Tiger Temple in Krabi, and other beaches further out besides Ao Nang. You can walk to the pier (5 minutes) to catch a ferry boat to Railay to spend a day - Railay was amazing! As a cat lover, I loved having friendly cats at the property. Made my stay that much sweeter. I highly recommended Rimlay!

          A real gem”

          Location, attentive staff, cleanliness

          Rimlay Villas was a real pleasure to visit. Well placed for both Krabi and Ao Nang, it was away from the madding crowd with views across The bay to Railay Point. The proprietor, Aliza, greeted us and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived, always prepared to give advice and make arrangements to ensure an enjoyable stay. The staff were always on hand and went out of their way to help (the towel arrangements on our bed were amazing!) We were able to rent a motorbike from the hotel which gave us the freedom we needed to enjoy the surrounding areas and get to beaches. There is a pool to relax in at the hotel with plenty of loungers. The beach is a little limiting being on a shallow bay but swimming is possible at high tide. We were very sorry to leave after 10 days - Would we go back? - Absolutely YES!! A bit more variety of fruit at breakfast would have been the icing on the cake! Overall - Peaceful, relaxing, comfortable and BLISS!

          Fabulous place”

          Location/ Food/ Swmming pool

          I really enjoyed my stay at Rimlay Villas, it is without doubt, the best value hotel I've stayed in for a long time. Very peaceful location, beach was about 50 paces from my bed, fantastic sea views and fabulous swimming pool. Large queen sized beds, flat screen tv, large walk-in shower room and spotlessly clean. Great walks up an almost deserted stretch of the beach to the left, and a working harbour about a 5 minute stroll to the right, got some great photographs at dawn! Not a great deal to do in the surrounding area, but if you're looking for peace and quiet, a superb location and comfortable accomodation at a great price then book Rimlay. Small on site restaurant does great food at extremely reasonable prices and the complimentary breakfast is one of the best I've had in Thailand. Lady on reception speaks very good English and is very friendly and helpful. Loved my time here, great stay!Recommended!

          Great clean rooms and good value near the Ocean”

          Ocean View, Clean Rooms, Attentive Staff

          We enjoyed our stay at Rimlay Villa. Unfortunately, we only stayed two nights and had tours on both of the days so we couldn't relax at the place as much as we would have liked. The location is both great and annoying. It is secluded, offering privacy but is also far from any good beaches (like Railey) and restaurants (like in Ao Nang). We knew that before we booked and found that once we just spent some quality time at the hotel, we were happy. The pool is a decent size but pleasantly warm and a nice place to swim. The beach and ocean are nice for viewing but aren't great for swimming. You can see the four islands and Phi Phi islands in the distance! Pros: The staff was very attentive and kind. They even let us eat breakfast 15 minutes early one day so we could eat and then catch our tour. The grounds are very clean and beautiful. The rooms are clean and modern and are very organized. An air conditioner and a fan are in each room. Two free bottles of water in the fridge daily as well! We ate dinner there one night and found the food to be some of the best in all of Thailand! There curry was amazing. We especially liked the red pineapple curry with shrimp. Cons: It is a few kilometers from Ao Nammao pier and further from Ao Nang. So wherever you are coming from previously the hotel can be a little ways away and cost some money. It is that much further from the main tourist town, Ao Nang, which can set you back 200 - 300 baht each way unless you catch the free one way shuttle into town. The breakfast (included) was surprisingly not so good. It was fine, but nothing to write home about. Especially in contrast to how good the dinner was. Also, the air conditioner kept leaking and making weird noises in the night, which woke us up constantly. We like the room really bold but the second night we decided to just sleep with the fan on. It was slightly warmer than with the air conditioner going but it worked out just fine and much better than the noisy air conditioner.

          Our 4 day stay at Rimlay Villa was super. We read many good things about this place and all are true. The owner and staff are great and the location on the beach is superb and offers privacy and rest. The idea behind concept and setup is great and the Rimlay Villa offered all we needed. We were lucky with the pool and sea view and felt from the first moment very comfortable. Breakfast and food in the restaurant are great and the garden offers you both sunny and shaded places. The sun beds are relative new and can be used to sit and lay down. If we plan a new stay near Krabi we will book this location again.

          facilities, location, service

          We expected to have a tranquil holiday in Krabi and Rimlay Villa, a small resort located in a quiet area, provided us what we expected. Although it is quite far from Ao Nang (approx 10-11km), this is good because those hustles and bustles are isolated from us. We could wake up and listen to the sound of waves and winds. However, if you would like to go elsewhere, renting a motorbike would be the best option. Besides,the pool is cleverly designed to be a great spot to simultaneously swim and enjoy the sea sight. The staffs were friendly and kind.

The location is mind blowing and proximity to aonang makes it even more convenient... Hire a bike for 250 baht and roam your heart out. My wife and I are in love with this place and will visit it again and again... Krabi for us is rimlay villa! Detailed review shall follow.

Private beach..quiet..calm.. breakfast by the sea.. clean swimming pool.. the food was yummy.. the room was clean.. the staff were friendly..it was a bit difficult to communicate, their english was poor.. thankfully we had google translate.. lol Go to aonang just call songtheaw in front of the villa's gate.. rent motorcycle just walk for a bit nearby aonammao pier.. U can book the tour to 4 islands or etc.. from the villa but it's cheaper if u walk around aonang beach.. Overall... we were satisfied staying in rimlay villa.

          Truly Tranquil - Perfect spot for some awesome R&R”

          Very quiet, friendly and helpful staff & decent internet throughout grounds.

          Rimlay Villa is the perfect little spot for a peaceful getaway. It lived up to all the users reviews, a clean and quaint hotel with only 20 rooms which all have a view of the water. Decent breakfast, super friendly staff, short 500 meter walk to the Pier and a decent enough pool for a dip to cool off. You won't be using their beach however in 20 min you can be on Railay. There's also a Food Mart about a 15 min walk away and many local restaurants around where you'll find your cheap and cheerful meals. Actually the rates at the hotel are also very affordable in comparison to normal room service prices that if you don't feel like it you don't have to leave. Good internet as I was able to stream the Olympics and make Skype calls from our personal porch which each room has. Also due to its size our 2 year old was able to run about the grounds and we'd be able to watch her rather easily. We also used the free shuttle to AuNang which was helpful. If you're looking for a little escape, quite get-a-way this is your spot. We'd def go back.

          Location, Staff, Food

          I stayed at the Rimlay Villa during my first trip to Krabi and I definitely feel this holiday is one of the best holidays i've been on. The villas are beautiful and clean. Relaxing balconies/porches are well equipped with wifi as well as a beautiful view. The restaurant has at least one familiar dish from every cuisine and the bar is equipped with everything. A basic place with the simplest but best facilities. The staff is amazing and I AM DEFINITELY MAKING ANOTHER TRIP THERE.

          PERSONALISED SERVICE, tasty & reasonable food at onsite restaurant, beachfront location, affectionnate cats

          If you want to stay at a small, personable hotel located directly on the ocean, then you certainly won't be disappointed with Rimlay Villas. During my stay there, I felt more like a family guest than a tourist because of the individualised attention I received. The villas are cozy, the pool is great for refreshing dips, and the food the little restaurant provides is really good value. -- There is great horse riding to be had just down the road and the pier for longtail boats to Railay is just a few minutes walk the other way.

          Peaceful bungalows, far from the action”

          View, room, staff

          if youre looking for a place close to town, restaurants, bars, shopping, massage places, etc, this is not the place for you. There is some public transportation, but it's not convenient. beware: foreigners are already charged a higher fare, and the price goes up after dark, and they charge extra because it's in a remote location. Also, it's generally the last stop; took us about 1 hour to get to and from Krabi town, when it's only about a 20 minute direct ride away. The hotel does provide a free ride to Ao Nang twice a day, but you have to get back on your own. There are a few local Thai restaurants a five minute walk away, but if you want something different you have to go to Ao Nang or Krabi or Railay. The restaurant at the hotel does some nonThai food as well. The prices are comparable to some of the sit down restaurants in the bigger towns, but you can find better prices. Also, the local Thai restaurants are much cheaper if you want Thai. If you do want to go into the big towns, just make sure you plan to do several things to make it worth your while (i.e. Massage, lunch, shopping, supper all in one trip). Also, the beach is not great for swimming. It's pretty rocky, shells, coral, even saw some glass. There is a pool, but if you're wanting to get in the ocean, you do so at your own risk. That being said, we enjoyed our stay. We were fine with the aforementioned. The staff was friendly and worked really hard. We wanted and liked the peace and quiet, fewer people around. The breakfasts were very good. We would come back here if we could. It was perfect for us!

          Clean,Beautiful and Super Service. The staffs are very helpful and care. You dont need to move around looking to book for island hopping or sightseeing just book frm the villa its the cheapest n good.

          Nothing to fault. Its the most clean n comfort. If u love quietness this is good plc. If u enjoy vibrants than stay in Aonang. There is transport provided daily to Aonang 9am and 6pm.But come back u need to make yr way home.Tuktuk(taxi) abt 150 to 200baht per trip not per person.Dont waste time looking around to book island hopping or sightseeing just book frm the Villa cheap n good they will definately help u.Try to order food for lunch or dinner trust me theirs are much better taste than most in Aonang. Beach swimming forget it as its muddy just join the Mariam Tour they bring u to many islands beautiful white sand n blue sea for swim n snoorkling(Book frm Villa) and dont worry abt transport they will pick u morning n sent back evening. Overall I trully enjoy my stay. Will definately come back with bigger groups.Thank You to all the staffs there. I enjoy my stay in Rimlay.

          rimlay villa is located on a quiet cove about a 10 minute tuk tuk ride to ao nang, 30 minute taxi drive to krabi airport. we heard one couple complain about the "remote location and not easy to get around" but we found it to be convenient, but very relaxing and quiet. the villas are adequate and staff helpful. i do think a bit more attention could be paid to cleaning the rooms as the small glass shelves in the bathroom were dirty and filled with dust. we were in remote thailand, so i didn't complain. the breakfast was very basic and unremarkable. we would sure have enjoyed a good brewed coffee - but only nescafe was served. the room had a lovely view of the bay and was a good size. there was nice covered porch on each room. it was fine for a couple of nights. the kind staff was the redeeming factor!
