Everything was perfect
Wonderful island, wonderful location and wonderful hotel experience
Everything was perfect about this stay - the Racha island was so beautiful, the hotel was located at the most beautiful beach on the island, the room was spacious, food was good, all the details were perfect, the service was very considerate. It was totally worth it -though not cheap at all. I would recommend everyone to come here once in a life time. The only problem was the traveling expense - it costed you more than 1600Bht per person for return trip by speedboat from Chalong Pier to Racha. And there were only 3 boats everyday. You also need to pay for the taxi fee to Chalong Pier from Phuket airport or other places.

Beautiful beach
very busy!
Although the Racha is very nice we had just come from Six Senses Yao Noi which is amaaaaaazing! The main beach is lovely with clear water and white sand but loads of tour boats and tourists during the day (and tonnes of loungers for hire taking up a lot of room). Best time to swim was early morning or late afternoon. Also the pool at the back of the resort was great, not crowded and with a bar and table service. Our room was nice especially the bathroom with its outdoor shower and twin vanities. The food and service at the restaurants was pretty good. Had a good pedicure at the spa too. We walked to the other side of the island where there is a cheaper resort and not as nice beach, unfortunately quite a lot of rubbish on the beach.

Great resort
Very clean and nice rooms. Friendly and helpful staffs
arranging the boat ride was easy and the waiting lounge at chalong pier was comfortable. the speed boat ride was comfortable and safe, staffs were very attentive throughout the boat ride. resort had given us a nice sea view villa, the room and bathroom is big and clean. at night, the housekeeping will sweetly lights up the essential oil and tidy up the room again. there's a few restaurants you can choose from during your stay, food is average. but food at ifre grill is good if you don't mind paying a little more.

Racha is the best
perfect island
someone said the racha sea just likes maldives, but disappointed that it is not that accurate. just the blue color under sun shinning is glory from a far view, but when you go to the beach, it is heavily polluted. racha hotel is perfect. it worths to spend two nights there. but no need longer since the island has no other view just with undevelopped hills. food tasty and fireworks on each saturday.

Luxury, few people, lack sports
very luxury and good service. quite and perfect for honeymoon. however, we came at the low tide season and it was very choppy. so we ended up not going diving there. what a pity! the atv tour was of great fun!

Absolutely Lovely Getaway Resort
Quiet, full service, beautiful resort with all amenities
The Villa We got the cheapest villa available here (with no private pool), but it was still fantastic. Very clean room, on a hillside with a view of the beach from the balcony (although partially obscured by other villas). Room had powerful AC, and a streaming movie service. The Beach Beautiful, but during the daytime, was littered with day tripping tourists (from 9 - 3pm) making the beach a little crowded and noisy. Super fine sand, person high waves, but lots of coral (so bring water shoes). The Resort Free body board, basic scuba, bicycle and other rentals on site, but didn't use anything except the body board. Pool overlooking the beach was sweet. Great service everywhere. The Boatride The hotel provides a private boat service to/from the hotel a few times a day for a fee. It's a 10 passenger small craft riding ocean waves and takes like 45 mins from Chalong Pier, so if you get seasick, take a pill first. There are other private charters also if hotel times aren't convenient. The Food/Drink Food and drink were pretty good. You are pretty much forced to eat at one of the 3 hotel restaurants as there isn't much anything else on the island. The local store option seemed kinda ghetto for my taste but within walking distance from the resort. You get tired of eating the food though after about a few days to a week. The Other Stuff Resort was mostly couples and young families. Didn't see many singles there. Some of the families broke the calm & peace with the sound of disciplining children in a loud foreign language...but you only hear them during eating. Not sure if any resort can properly accommodate those kinds of (at least to me) obnoxious guests. There are scuba diving, atv, and other types of tours activities provided through the hotel but didn't wind up doing any of it because it was so nice to relax on the beach and the pool

very good Hotel, but old pics from the beach
nice rooms, friendly staff, amazing beach when the tourists leave the beach at 4pm
unfortunately the pics are old and not true, the beach get crowded from tourists from 10am until 4pm and this ruins the amazing view of the beautiful bay. Furthermore the food is not equal to the price but the rest is perfect and generally we enjoyed our stay.
