Very very nice loation with poor options
Location, Sea, Sea
It's very nice staying in Raya Island, and BanRaya is perfect for snorkeling here. For the hotel itself, the water is not very clean, the air conditioner cannot be turned on during day time, and very limited option for food. But there is really a very very nice beauty with smile like an angel, hahaha

Great place for a relaxing time
Location, Food, Staff
I stayed there with 2 of my friends for one night. A Saturday night. Getting to hotel is by the speed boat arranged by the hotel. Boat and the service is good, but it is good if the separate price for the boat is informed early. Hotel transfer from the pier is arranged (5 - 8mins). Rooms (Cottages) are good, but the A/C is was not available during the day time. Restaurant and the food was very good. Private beach (Konkare beach) is great, we did snookering. Pool was great too, it has a nice view with the sea (kind of infinity pool) Had a great WiFi coverage thought out the hotel premises (even by the Koknare bay) but in the hotel room it was not good. Had a Aromatherapy massage in the Spa, it is decent. Return to Phuket by speed boat, some refreshments are provided on the way. Less crowded hotel, good staff and good food. Perfect for a relaxing weekend with some water activities.

It is not pricing for the trip.
The food
The island is not worth to go and is so so for the trip which is not good enough.

Ban Raya an average hotel on Raya Island
The swimming pool, Location and the diving store
Unlike The Raya and Bangalow Raya Hostel, Ban Raya is more like a village and has many space for you to explore. I climb down the cliff near The God of Raya and found the best spot to enjoy the sun rise in Raya Island. 180 degree sea view facing East allow you to enjoy the whole sun rise. Moreover, the swimming pool also has a great view. It's a very nice place for you to relax after spending whole day in the sea.

Quiet, best snorkelling and diving, excellent value for money
This was our fourth visit to Ban raya, we keep going back because we love it so. A really relaxing time to unwind and destress.
