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.
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.
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
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
outstanding location beach is on your doorstep and one of the best beaches in Thailand perfect for people who just want to relax also no night life the ultimate dining experience is amazing Good scuba diving aswell and snorkelling
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
Excellent view, nice pool, luxurious room”
Everythings is great here. The beach is a bit crowded in the afternoon but still very beautiful. The water is crystal clear with a lot of equipment to play such as body board. Really enjoy staying here. Hope to come back again
