Great location on West Railay. Nice rooms, beautiful grounds, 2 nice pools. Tasty breakfast with good coffee. Staff friendly. WiFi didn’t work most of time in our room which was at the end of property. Would definitely stay there again.
Very nice hotel. I was in a jacuzzi villa, which was VERY spacious. The staff was very nice, and helpful. The location is right next to the beach and right next to the start of Railay walking street. The only thing I will point out has nothing to do with the hotel itself. Railay Beach is beautiful, but since you can only get there by boat, you're limited in the choices of things to do spur of the moment. There are plenty of things there to keep you busy for a day or two, but after that, you could go a little stir crazy. UNLESS what you're looking for is someplace you can just relax and forget about the rest of the world. Then that could work well. Also, it's a mecca for rock climbers, a category I don't fit into, but you might.
The suite we booked was very nice with a private walk and the neighbors were not too close. Rooms are non-smoking, but they provide ash trays at the outside covered table. Overall everything was awesome, but there are a couple of things that could be improved. You only get one key and the AC takes about 2 hours to get the room cool. Either leave the key in the room unlocked or just deal with the heat when you get back. The main shower did not have hot water; the sink and the jacuzzi tub had great hot water, just not the main shower. While it was a rain maker style shower head, it appeared to be old (rusted? corroded?) it did not work very well and kind of dribbled out. More than enough to wash ones body, but for the price, I expected a bit more here. Again, overall it was a great room with awesome staff members who went out of their way to make everyone feel comfortable. The 2 swimming pools are close to all the rooms and the sea is just a couple meters away.
Great hotel and staff”
Excellent place to stay, right in front of the beach. The hotel has a great pool area and watching the sunset was so great to appreciate. The staff was also super great and very kind. The only bad part is that there were so many mosquitos in the room. I got bitten several times. The staff brought more mosquito repellent for us but everyday there were mosquitos to but us.
Great location and villa”
The staff were not very helpful when departing the resort, we almost missed our boat because they did not direct us correctly. Besides that, the resort was excellent.
Beachfront property with no beachfront rooms”
If you stay here you need a bungalow. The deluxe pool front king is way too far from the ocean. The pictures online are taken with a special lens and are misleading. The bungalows are lovely with sunken jacuzzi and private wood deck. They are for a romantic getaway, otherwise save a little money and stay elsewhere. I upgraded my room to a bungalow and then was very happy but this was way more than what I needed as a solo traveler. The breakfast buffet is phenomenal and the ocean front tables can’t be beat. There is a fabulous on site coffee counter as well! Loved that. The staff were lovely but the boy that took me to my room did little to explain how the lights and AC worked and I had quite a bit of trouble initially.
Value for Money, Great Location ”
This hotel is at Railay west beach and perfect location for a beach lover. Staffs are very friendly and they gave us a room, 4hrs before standard check in time. This is accessible only by boat and recommend to take their airport pick up service, if you are going there for the first time (although rate is bit higher than normal). Buffet breakfast is normal (nothing much options). We were in jacuzzi villa and it was pretty big. Recommend to always use deposit box to keep your valuable stuff as we lost $100 from my wife’s handbag, when we came back from phi-phi island tour. Lot of restaurants and happenings are there at Railay west and east beaches from afternoon until midnight. If you are going out by boat, please always check wheather forecast as it is changing very fast, and rain with heavy winds create storms easily (if it says rain, better stay at hotel and explore Railay).
A great resort and wonderful staff! My only issue is with the very hard mattresses. Wow! Coming from the US, that is something I am not accustomed to. And those long boats, wish they could congregate at the ends of the beach instead of the middle. Some new lounge chairs would be lovely. Overall, we have a fabulous time and can’t say enough good things about the staff, very accommodating.
A great spot in Railay”
Located on the beach at Railay West (much better choice than R East) it is a good place to stay. Villas are large and well maintained, with one exception - shower head was rusty and all over the place... Beds are very hard, hardest I ever experienced. Breakfast plentiful and offers many choices. Price of Alcoholic drinks and dinner is 20% than the numerous places around it. Staff is trying to be as helpful as they can.
My wife and I were traveling for our honeymoon and were extremely excited for this stop. It was the most expensive place we were staying, but figured it would be worth it. Pros: Beautiful rooms and setting. Service staff (housekeeping, restaurant, grounds) were very friendly. Cons: *Suite entrance, Bathroom, and jacuzzi DO NOT have AC. We were here in Feb but could not imagine being here during hot season. For the price, we would expect the whole suite to have AC. *Front desk staff were very unhelpful. Anytime we asked them for help, answers to questions or requests were just "no" as opposed to presenting any alternative options or trying to be accommodating. *Beach- while very scenic, the beach right in front of the hotel is where all of the longboats pull up and these LOUD boats are coming/going all day. I'm surprised they are not required to use the dock on the opposite side. It really puts a damper on an otherwise beautiful beach.
Gorgeous little hotel in the heart of Railey Beach. You basically have a private beach! Room was clean, air conditioner worked, really nice view from the room. Restaurant was okay. Would be nice it they served cheese at breakfast, but otherwise, our stay was really wonderful.
We stayed at the deluxe rooms (next to the pool). Room is big. Bathroom is huge. Pool is nice. Lighting can be better (somewhat dim at night). It’s not super modern but everything was clean and of good quality. The best part was eating breakfast right on the beach. However, the breakfast food can be vastly improved - many hotels on Railay half the price of this one had better breakfast. Location is amazing - it is right next to west side of Walking Street, and you can access east side of walking street through a back gate.
Wonderful experience ”
Although weather was mostly bad, I had a wonderful experience at Railway Village, due to the very comfortable jacuzzi villa and wonderful staff . I would definitely come again and would recommend it to my all friends
Nice, clean, spacious rooms. Great pools. Placed on the nice westside Beach. Perfect lokation. Rooms away from longtailboat noise. A bit more attention at the breakfastbuffet would be nice. Often lacked refilling. Noisy “airbubbles” in the pool. Made it a bit hard to enjoy staying on the balcony.
I can't wait to go back!”
Our stay was from January 25-30, 2019. I was hoping for the best, but because of mixed reviews I was prepared to be underwhelmed. Any apprehensions about choosing the wrong hotel were laid to rest the minute we arrived. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed our stay so much that we plan on returning in the very near future. Our room was on the second floor at the back of the property next to the larger pool. While I read complaints about staying at the back of the property we found our room to be perfectly located. It helped when we figured out that we can go out the back way too. The room décor is simple, but very attractive. Our only complaint is the lack/misuse of storage space. There was half a closet that we couldn't use because the opening is blocked by the vanity and the safe is in the half that you can get to. There are no dresser drawers. The grounds are beautiful and everyone on staff was helpful. We're looking forward to returning to Railay Village Resort.
Beautiful and very luxury resort in an amazing place. Nice and friendly staff. If you think about booking trips around Railey, to the islands or back to Krabi / Ao Nang, you can probably better shop around a bit rather then book them at the hotel. They were overpriced. Other than that, I absolutely recommend coming here!
Fantastic spot on Railay West Beach”
Stunning views whilst enjoying breakfast. Best location for getting to everything as so central, next to the main walking street where all the bars and restaurants are but our room was blissfully quiet with stunning views as we requested an upper deluxe room. Really pleased with the service and ambience at this hotel.
Great location, excellent facilities, cleaning may be an issue ”
Great hotel and wonderful pool for children. Pool may not great for young children since supervision is always necessary. Rooms are big, beds are hard, so be ready for it. Lots of people so staff struggle to keep the place tidy, the attitude is great however. We enjoyed the stay.
Fantastic hotel, lovely staff and great location”
Last time I came to Railay beach it was 23yrs ago and there was no power after 6pm. And hardly anywhere to stay. I loved it then and loved it again. Obviously it’s much busier than it was but it still had a chilled feel and the surroundings are stunning. Sunsets amazing and the Railay Village reaper was perfect. Huge rooms, lovely restaurant, helpful staff and a little oasis in the midst of a lively little beach town. Highly recommend.
Great hotel by Railay Beach!”
Excellent place. Our room was clean with pool access right outside the door. It was also very close to the beach where we rented our longtail for island hopping. The staff was very helpful. They can help book your island hopping. But here's a tip. Double check a private kiosk on the beach where we were able to hire and haggle a private excursion for less than what a group tour would have been.
