Paradise”
A surprise for my daughters 30th birthday the staff helped me decorate with ballons ect that i took with me. Nothing is too much trouble for them. 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.

Nice view and pool. But the facilities are a bit old and water pipeline made the water yellowish. Hope it will improve later. The service is good. Food is so-so but a bit over price.

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

Beautiful beach ”
너무 아름다웠어요. 우기라서 걱정했는데 정말 해변이 이뻤어요. 너무 한적해서 정말 해변가에서 노는 것 말고는 할 게 없어요.. 스태프들은 안타깝게 그렇게 친절하진 않아요. 그리고 이구아나인지 그 큰 도마뱀이 똥을 싸고 다녀서 ㅠㅠ 저희 빌라 가는 길에 엄청나게 큰 응가가 있었는데 치워주지 않더라고요.. The villa itself is beautiful and the beach is also very beautiful. Even though the hotel lent us the snorkel gear for free, there are not many fishes for us to see. To go to the snorkeling point, you either need to pay to take the ferry or walk 15 - 20 minutes to the pier. It would have been better if they offer us some shuttle services. They lend the bicycles for free, however, the road is too bumpy to ride bicycles. Breakfast wasn't satisfactory, but did enjoy champagne in the morning.

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.

全体的にgood”
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。)

Broken Air Conditioning and Free pizza”
Air conditioning in our room did not work contacted the resort and they sent a repair man to look after it. He said it’s ok, but no cold air was blowing out of the vent. The room was hot, around 26-28 degrees the few days we were there. At night the room cooled to 24.5( we had all the windows and doors and blinds closed the whole time) . We contacted the hotel management again, they seemed to care but didn’t really show it in their actions. When we checked out they offered us free pizza for our 5 star $600CAD for 2 nights broken air conditioned room. The y were friendly and hoped to see us again.

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

Friendly and attentive staffs, beautiful resort”
We stayed 6D5N. Staff were friendly and helpful and we felt welcome. It is a beautiful resort and they have good amenities (complimentary bikes, snorkels, kayaks and sun beds, speedboat and land etransfer, baby sitters, dive centre). Our room was cleaned daily and we love the quality of the bedding. The bath can do with a bit of a refresh though. We were worried about the foods after reading some of the reviews but it was better than expected. It costs us around £60-£80 for 2 for each meal (min. 2 courses plus drinks - nothing fancy just juices and beer) which we thought is pricey. The white sandy beach is heaving with tourist between 10am and 4pm. At one point we counted 48 boats on the shore which is ridiculous for the size of the island. There are some litter on the beach. Perhaps plastic should be banned on the island? We dived around the island - corals were bleached and the dives Overall we enjoyed our stay and were impressed by the level of service provided.

this is a 7 star hotel”
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.

rude staff called POOH”
I had very good stay in phuket for my honeymoon but my last stay was Racha and totally throw off my whole stay because of their staff her name POOH was very rude at the check out. 1- we asked her a question about the discount that we get after check in since we didnt use it and she replied us very rudely asked me to go back to my room and get that paper for her. i don't care about 15% off. i just wanted to clarify since they didn't tell us how to exactly use it. but the way she told me to go to my room and get it was extremely rude i didn't even believe she would talk to a customer that way even my husband was surprised and we just looked at each other. she is ill mannered and her eye rolling while checkin out. the rest of the staff were friendlier. 2- we told her that we left our suitcases to be picked up and she didnt tell the staff and it started raining and it rained on it. 3- she didnt notify us about the shuttle bus because we told her to. it left us we had to run after it.
