Along the coast, easier to get to the snorkeling point, though there was no private beach to walk on barefoot. A range of outdoor activities can be chose, horse riding~ snorkeling~scuba diving. We had tranquil time there while in raya island~

A lovely setting, friendly and helpful staff, rooms were basic but clean and tidy. Private set in a lovely setting just off the beach with great swimming pool, restaurant, spa, dive centre and horse riding.

Very calm and serene settings. The staff are very helpful. Obly downside is the food at the restaurant that could be far better for this level of hotel...

          Fantastic location for snorkeling”
          You can see a lot of beautiful fish and corals just 5 meters from the stone beach of hotel. I even found lobster there which is very cool. I would like to recommend this hotel just for this reason which is good enough. Further more, there is a nice non-border swimming pool for free also a convenience shop in the resort. However, if you are a bit picky on accommodation, you'd better pay attention to below aspects : 1. The room and furniture are old in Deluxe and Superior Room. 2. No kettle is available. Hot drinking water is only available in the restaurant. 3. Wifi is only available in lobby and restaurant.

          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.

          A hotel with a good place for snokeling!
          We had a great stay at this hotel, however, if you arrive at the Raya Island port you will need to take a car (actually it is a tractor) to the hotel it will take about 10 minutes, but do not worry because when you just arrive at the hotel you will love it. The hotel has a good place for snorkeling.

          the resort is good for snorkeling, neat, clean, tidy room
          Good welcome drinking. The room is neat, tidy and clean. I like the swiming pool and the grean lawn. There is a good beach for snorkeling very nearby the hotel. If you like snorkeling, it's your good choice. For standard room, the air conditioner is chargable. However, my personal view, it's ok to sleep without air conditioner at night. The temperature of the island's night is not high which is about 25C.

          Great Resort”
          The lanscape
          The Banraya Resort was a real surprise, the rooms were large, roomy and comfortable. I had the standard fan room and I thought I was going to have to endure hot, humid and mosquitoes infested nights – but I was wrong! The room was cool and mosquito netting protected us from the mossies! The resort has it own little ‘private beach’ which was a treat and a good alternative when the main beach (Patok Bay) got a little too crowded.The pool was fabulous and the food served at the restaurant was great.

          no hair dryer, kettle in every room. they are available for rent only. only 2 people allowed every room even you have booked a family room with no need for extra bed or bedding. It costs you 50% extra to have your 2 kids added in the same room for shared bed. You get no options so be aware when you book it online. Good location for snorkeling when the sea is calm.

          Our family stayed for two nights here last year during New Year. We loved this resort: its easy access to the snorkeling area, its pool, its garden, and its friendly staff. On new year eve, the resort even offered free buffet dinner for all residents in the dinning area. It was really a great memory. The food in the restaurant taste good and price is reasonable. We only walked to the the Racha once because we enjoyed the quietness and beautiful scenery here better. The old facilities in the room was the only thing we think was a minus, but it has everything we need.

          The surroundings are stunning with beautiful views to the sea. But when it comes to accommodation it's overpriced and of poor quality. Rooms needs a makeover and there's no fridge or water boiler and the rooms are not properly cleaned. If you fix want a cup of instant coffee at your room you must pay 30 Bath for hot water. The beautiful placed Swimmingpool are invaded by day trippers, a noisy crowd, in the afternoon. Paying about 120 euros a day for a so-called de luxe room is pure theft. The resort is lacking management and service is non existing.

          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.

Not a bad stay, but very under whelmed. It could be so good!

The surrounding is very natual like a garden, to awake in the woods and hear birds singing in the morning is relaxing. Dont have hot water to shower. The swiming pool is fabulous! The food is good but much more expensive and service is slow.

          It's less pricey and quieter than the other accomodations on the same island. The only bad thing is that it is almost impossible to walk from Patok Bay to the hotel and you need to wait for their shuttle bus which is running not so frequently. Food in the hotel restaurant is good and at reasonable price. Room is ok. Massage is pricey and just so so. The best thing is it's very close to several diving spots- great for scuba divers.
