    Days in Paradise”
    Very beautiful romantic Hotel with lovely facilities. Everywhere it is very clean. The stuff is very friendly and attentive. Everywhere you look, you can find romantic details. Food we had was very good. The villas are big and very quiet. The lovely clear, blue water cried at us to come in, we found so many diffrent fishes snorkeling , truly fantastic. The only thing we dident like very much were many boats arriving and leaving from 11 in the morning till 4 in the afternoon to bring tousends of daytourists. If you don't care about this it is realy a paradise place, we liked it so much. Daniel and Yvonne from Switzerland

    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.

    Amazing Hotel/Island - Ruined by daytrippers”
    This hotel could be amazing. The facilities are superb. A few things made us really not enjoy our stay here. Firstly, the beach was dominated during the day with Chinese tourists coming in on longtail/speedboat day trips, so it was loud with no sense of luxury as the price suggests. Our time in the cocktail bar watching the sunset was also ruined by a Chinese tourist constantly bringing up phlegm and spitting on the pateo, UNBELIEVABLE!!!! I have given the staff 4 stars and this is purely based on their effort and friendliness. We have stayed at a number of high end resorts and felt the staff here were not trained to as good a standard, and maybe lacked professionalism. That said, they were extremely nice and gave 110% with a smile. Overall we were really disappointed and would not return, unless they somehow stop boats coming into the beach and dropping off tourists, and have some strict rules on etiquette whilst in the bars/restaurants put in place with penalties if not complied with

    Exceptionally Outstanding! ”
    My girlfriend and I stayed in the "The Racha" for 5 days in December 2018. The experience was nothing less than stellar. This is the perfect stay for people that just need to relax a bit and get away from their daily stress. We loved the exceptional service, the location and the hotel facilities. While we had no problem and loved our stay, we can image some might would like to know about more about the negative aspects: - There are lots of daily visitors (mostly Chinese) that occupy the beach from 10 AM to 4 PM. If you expect a empty beach you will be disappointed. However, Hotel offers you a private area of the beach which was for us good enough. - This is a hotel for relaxation and activities, not for party. If you looking for a experience that has huge party entertainment...this is not the place to look for.

    Pricy but worth it”
    One of the best resorts I’ve been too. There are only two negatives well maybe a third of you can’t handle the speed boat trip in and out. The price is a bit expensive. But you get what you pay for. 5 stars. The other negative is the shantyish typical Thai style on the way from the boat to the resort. Otherwise everything was awesome.

    いい点悪い点を箇条書きに書きます。 ・静かでゆっくりできる ・ロケーションいい ・施設内の清掃は行き届いてる ・プールがきれい ・子供にやさしい ・スタッフの対応に差がある ・ミズオオトカゲがホテル内を散歩しています。慣れます。 ・ホテル宿泊者しかホテル内の施設が使えません。 ・ホテルの目の前のビーチは波が高め ボディーボードはこちら側のほうが楽しい。 ・ホテルと逆側のビーチでしかシュノーケリングは難しいのに、無料送迎がない。シュノーケリングセットを借りて持って行くのがキツい。他に荷物もあるのに。 (往復で500バーツと言われますが、400バーツまではいける。もしかしたら300とかでもいけるかも。あんま交渉しなかった。)中国人観光客の船がひっきりなしにきます。シュノーケリングツアー。 ・食事の値段は日本と全く変わりません。 外食に出てる感覚です。日本の5つ星のリゾートホテル内で食事をするよりは安いですが。3人(内3歳児1人)で夕食15000円弱くらいはします。 ・外にラチャシーフードレストランがあります。行きませんでしたが、大人の足でゆっくり行って10分弱くらいです。値段はリゾート価格ですが、ホテルよりは安いです。 ・送迎のボートの値段が高すぎる。1人7500円ほど。これ、別請求です。 (帰ってから知ったのだが、転覆事故もあった。波の高い時は気をつけましょう。)

    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

    The fact that this is rated 5 stars, and so are so many other places makes it ridiculous. This hotel is absolutely amazing. We stayed in a Junior Pool Suite, it wasn't cheap but it was worth it. On every level they exceeded every expectation. I have stayed in a lot of 5 star hotels, but The Racha just blew me away. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to my friends and family and I will definitely return in future! Hopefully sometime this year, for longer. I also highly recommend the seafood buffet dinner.

The 2 bedroom pool villa is stunning spotless the beds and pillows the best of the best. The beach is to die for it really is paradise on earth. I wish we could have stayed longer the only con is the cost of the speed boat which is compulsory for four of us it was almost $400 Aud return.

    It was over the top! Beautiful setting. The staff was absolutely amazing., kind, courteous, patient, and very genuine. The pools were clean and perfectly cared for. If I had to send a word of caution, the 1000 BTH per person for the boat ride, each way seemed a bit extreme, however, the charge is compulsory and any other way to get there. Is eliminated. The beach is busy during the day with outside tourists, however, the hotel property is secluded from them. Certainly would recommend, and would definitely return.

    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.

    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.

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.

    The room itself is not as good as expected, but acceptable, apart from that, everything is 10/10. The BBQ seafood buffet is a must go, the actual seafood is average but the salad is the best! I saw lots of people saying too many day trippers destoying the nay/beach. Well everyone in that island has the same right to use the beach, you can't expect the day trippers to pay for the day trip and stay in the boat whole day so you have your "privacy". don't like the crowd? then don't go to the beach before 3 pm.
