Though it was quiet, the hotel was very nice and beautiful. The private beach was clean and water were clear. The 2 bedroom suite pool was very nice. This hotel was a great place to stay, especially for couple.
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.
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!
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.
Lovely part of the world”
Only reason you would come here is to do absolutely nothing. Great accomodation with lovely staff. Resturants very over priced with very limited other options. Main beach is covered in tourists from 11am-4pm.
Perfect getaway from husty busty life”
Very nice and friendly team there interacting with you with very considerate and caring services. Feel well taken care of. Beach is always terrific fine white sand good food. Just red wine choices needa improve a bit. Very relaxing 5 days stay
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.
we are 2 adults with 2 children 5 years old + Room is big , clean, and lovely ,will come back here again instead of staying at phuket town. - The price for hotel rooms is fine if hotel provide provide more complementary activities and food / beverage, total spend in this racha for 3d2n cost me ±40k baht - Dinner seafood bbq is not recommend , costly and nothings special - Afternoon activities with children we only can stay in the room or swimming pool because the beach crowded with all the day tour visitors..i tried to count the boats which parked in front there were more than 20 boats... terrible * suggest for the parents with children ,better bring your own liquid electric repellent
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).
Staying with my family.”
Excellent in room location, room facility, clearness, staff service, beach, beach facility. But, dinner is pretty inconvenient in small selection and misbooking of table and number. Because, reservation in table was poor and saw several table.
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.
awesome place for getting away holiday”
Very well trained staffs, they are all nice, smiling and helpful, indeed a beautiful place with well maintenance and super beach. Even-though the beach is quite crowed during the day due to day-trip visitors but it wasn't bother us because we have our private seats and area. There are many activities for guest to enjoy for free but the center is closed a little too early (6PM). The overall are great and worth. we will definitely come back.
Great hotel... great staff and beach”
The Racha is a superb place to stay for couples. Good for family too... Dining are a little bit expensive but overall it's worth it. Breakfast wasn't great for such a hotel. Can do more on the selection of breakfast menu. But the staffs and service are overall awesome. Would go back again.
amazing hotel located in beach”
Good environment and beach landscape. it is good time to provide hotel guests with private beach to swimming during Morning and evening. Tourists outside for one day touring will arrive at noon, so strong sunshine is prepared to them. This is reason why hotel guests speading their money in this hotel.
Romantic and beautiful beach”
Clean room, nice bathroom with indoor&outdoor. Can see the seaview from the bed. Staff are friendly&helpful. Breakfast's not delicious&no variety but italian restaurant's best! Should well prepared for raining season, esp. for Breakfast line&table.
Unforgettable stay at Racha Hotel”
We stayed at Racha for 3 nights,with 2 young kids,and loved the hotel.Rooms are clean and beautiful,with great ocean view and private pool.While reacing to racha yai island by speedboat,we had a bad seasickness ,kids were scared ,because weather was bad and it was raining ,to be honest I started regreting alteady,but once we reached island I forgot those feelings in first few seconds,it was worth,absolutely worth!Staff is super friendly and nice,attending to each our request with sincere smile.Customer service is excellent!Beach and sea are stunning,crystalclear water and nice waves,whitesands!The only thing is there were lizards in our room in our first night ,so we asked cleaners not to open doors and windows while cleaning,to avoid lizards in the room.Would definitely go back to Racha hotel.
