About Railay Phutawan Resort


Set on one of the most beautiful and romantic setting of Railay, the location of the resort ensures guests have complete privacy and can enjoy total relaxation away from the busier beaches of Krabi. The accommodation here portrays the rich cultural inheritance in each room and restaurant. As it’s a beach location, snorkeling, diving, fishing, elephant trekking, sailing, kayaking, or cave exploring are some common seasonal activities guests can enjoy. Those who need a break from beach activities can attend cooking lessons and learn how to prepare real Thai food at the on-site Cookery School. This 3-star property is an ideal destination for couples, honeymooners, and families.

Clean resort with helpful staff
I enjoyed my stay in this resort. The ambience was good and the staff were helpful. If you request something they would provide your need or do some actions immediately. However the resort is a bit far from the beach so I suggest that if you would stay in this resort call first as request the staff to send someone to pick you up from the boat terminal. During the stay the water pump in the bathroom was broken and it made a loud noise in the evening. I didn't report it but the cleaner found out about it so she reported it to the admin and the management fixed the water pump immediately and I was able to sleep well the following day. So I highly recommend this resort.

Excellent service and amazing view from the room and the pool
The staff was very friendly and upgraded us to a Superior room (we booked a standard), which had an excellent view facing the hill. One staff helped to carry our bag to the room and made sure everything in the room was in place. Breakfast was average with very limited spread, it could have been much better. Nevertheless, the view from the breakfast area was splendid, overlooking the beach and the rock climbing area. It was quite a walk from both Railay East and Railay West, especially with heavy bags, but the view from the room and pool was just amazing. Thumbs up!

Great stay
Lovely hotel with great views overlooking the andaman sea. The infinity pool was superb. The room was large and had all the necessary items. Great value for money. We would highly recommend.

Rule staffs. Dirty rooms.
I went to the "hotel" on a Wednesday night which is not a busy night for them. First, the air conditioning wasn't working. So after I complained to the reception, they tried to fix it for about 20mins and finally switched the room for us. The AC in the second room still didn't work well, so I talked to the reception again. The "lady" in the reception told me that she doesn't know what cold means to me, and she won't do anything else for us. Secondly, after the room issue was about 8pm at night. We went out for food and came back at 9:30pm. I was about to lay on the bed until I lifted the blanket up, and found few black stinks on my bed sheet, also the pillow case. I used my cell to call the reception, she told me the house keeping was already off and she doesn't have a key to open the room to get me a new sheet. Also she blamed on me that I should check the room once I got into the room. This is the worst hotel experience in my life so far, and I will never recommend anyone to stay in this "hotel"! Yes. They do have a nice view but dirty pool. But after all, I still won't go back there ever again!!! This "hotel" is worst than staying in a guesthouse!

Costly room but nice view
We booked for Tawan Standard with Breakfast at 1,500฿. The room was very old and small with poor wifi. The view from their swimming pool is a blast! It looks just like on the website which is such an amazing view of a pool, mountain and the sea. The hotel is up on the hill. There is a tuk-tuk service to pick up you from the pier. Breakfast was a nice buffet served until 10.30 am. Hotel restaurant was good. Thai food tasted delicious.

relaxing stay
Stayed 6 nights and got upgraded to pool view room. Close to everything. Enjoy nature and the quietness and to watch the rock climbers competing with the monkeys. Would stay again any time.

Awesome place to stay
We are two backpackers and we got a great rate on a room. The resort was really quiet, only a 10 minute walk from the beach and easy to find. The infinite pool had a fantastic panoramic view and it was crystal clear, well maintained with towels available and lounge chairs. Our room was spacious and clean. The air conditioning worked great and wasn't loud. The shower was hot and good pressure and the wifi was really fast. The staff was helpful, very friendly and hospitable. We had a very nice stay and we would stay there again. You can't go wrong here.

Good view and pool. Location closer to jungle trail to Tonsai (20 mins) but advisable only during light hours. Long walk to Railey West otherwise. General room with poorly lit bathroom which is technically open air (let's Mosquitos in).

Railay adventure
Although the infinity pool location was awesome, there was no shade (umbrellas or trees) so we could only use it from late in the afternoon. The room had no where to hang anything to dry, an abundance of massive cockroaches at night and many mosquitoes ( due to the large gap in the bathroom window). Would I recommend it? The view from the pool was great, but that was pretty much it!!

Great stay
We really enjoyed our stay at Phutawan. It is in the nicest part of East railay in our opinion. Not crowded, the resort was higher up and overlooked the bay, no smells or piled up trash. Some of the places we almost booked were nice, but neighbored on either side by grossness. Not Phutawan! Gorgeous misty jungle on one side and a small rock climbing wall and hut on the other side. As climbers, it was really fun to watch people climb from our pool. And the pool!!! It was awesome. Infinity pool with a gorgeous view. Only downside was no shade- we would recommend they pop up a few umbrellas to make it perfect. Free breakfast, always a great thing. Overall very clean...We spotted one cockroach in our room which was quickly smashed, but otherwise very clean and not buggy. Hard to be completely bug free when everything is open-air outside of the rooms. We don't blame them for the single visitor we had. This place is a great value for the price. If we ever go back to railay we would stay here (especially knowing we would breathe clean mountain air and look at the jungle)...not a smelly alleyway behind a hotel like so many others.
