Amazing villa with beach access and friendly staff ”

The beach, especially in the evenings, were stunning. You can paddle out to watch the sunset from the bay. It's also great for a swim and, if you want to go snorkeling, you can grab a free snorkel set and a bicycle from the boys in the water sports centre and cycle over to the other beaches on the island. I absolutely loved the spa and the saunas/steam room. It's affordable and they have a fantastic service. The room design, and the private pool were absolutely fantastic. The only let down was the buffet breakfast which was uninspired and the computer room which I had to use because my laptop broke down. The computers and internet access were really slow.

Amazing!!”

Beautiful island- so picturesque! The water is just paradise. The hotel is beyond comparison: the room was stunning- we upgraded to the Junior Spa Suite and it was like a palace. The service was exceptional, the staff warm and welcoming and the breakfast had an incredible range of options. We will definitely be back as it was a dream location. The only unfortunate aspect of the location is that the island is the drop off spot for hundreds of day trip tour companies and so from the hours of 10-4pm, the beach is packed with all nationalities, mostly Chinese and Russian day-trippers from Phuket. I fully understand the desire to visit as it is a paradise location, and the hotel does have a strict policy of not allowing the visitors to use the facilities, although a few snuck in whilst we were there, as the jumped up over the wall, near the sunbeds. All in all, I would highly recommend the hotel, it truly is a beautiful location and although the food is somewhat overpriced, we loved it!

Nice getaway”

Highly recommended. Very nice villa, with infinity pool and facing the sea where you can have a good view of the sun setting. Definitely a good choice if you would like a quieter beach as it takes 40 mins ride by speedboat to The Racha, costing 2400 thai baht approximate. The food is great too and beyond my expectation. The only complaint is the high cost of the speedboat.

Great stay ”

We had an enjoyable stay at the Racha. Smooth transfer and check-in. Loved the outdoor shower area, free flow of water in the room and the fact that the main pool does not allow kids. Wish the beach was less crowded during daytime, I have been to this beach a few years ago and could barely see a few umbrellas, compared to nowadays it’s a big big difference.

Beautiful resort too bad about the unfriendly child policy”

The beach makes this resort truly fantastic. If I was to be constructive in my criticism I would have to say that the Racha could do well by improving their food menu. I found it on the expensive side with low quality. THB580 ++ for fish and chips which is very poor quality as an example. Apart from this the overwhelming large number of day tourists on the beach ( largely groups of Chinese that may not be the quietest or the most polite) congregated daily from 11 am to 4pm. outside of these times the beach and water is amazing

Overpriced but excellent service”

This resort is located on a prime location on an isolated beach 40 mins away from Chalong Pier where guests will be whisked off by a private speedboat to the resort. Truly a private affair and experience. However do note that we paid $400 US dollars per night for the Grand Deluxe Villa which was a a tad overpriced. With that kind of rates, anyone could easily get a 5* hotel in Patong beach. The Racha is definitely 5* in terms of service, quality and staffing. Your requests are always met with a smile and promptly. Villa is always clean and amenities always replenished daily. Food is also pricey and not worth the money spent. Breakfast is the same each day with little variety. Highly recommended to take the speedboat out to Chalong for food, groceries and massages which is much cheaper. During the day, the beach is filled with tourists and day trippers. We got bitten by jellyfish near the rocks so have to be extra careful. Good to stay and experience once but will not return again.

beautiful hotel and lovely staff”

This is a beautiful hotel with lovely facilities. They have a lot of activities so you won't get bored staying for a couple days, however it is a little far off the beaten path so it takes a little effort to get to. The hotel makes it easy and it really is worth the trip. Phuket can be overwhelming, but this island paradise is a quiet little cove, with beautiful beaches (beware of day tourists, but that's anywhere in Thailand these days) and surrounding scenary. While everything is amazing and meets all five star expectations, with beautiful clean grounds, rooms and attentive staff, it is a little expensive by Thailand standards (however still very reasonable by international standards).

Stunning location/resort but overpriced”

Very friendly & attentive staff. Resort is just one of 4 or 5 to choose from on this small island, but with this particular resort being in the most ideal location, but very expensive in comparison to the others. Food was amazing, but closed far too early, around 8.30/9pm each evening. Room service was still available however, so we brought our meal out with us to eat poolside. Would come back to this island, but would save a small fortune and happily stay at any of the others available.
