About The Island : The location of this beautiful beach(perfect snorkel at Konkae beach) not too far from Chalong Pier but the option for transfer are by hotel or private (approximately 3000 THB per way for long tail boat) or by the hotel (schedule 2 times a day/early morning or late afternoon). Even booked for the hotel but transfer for... More

The beaches here are stunning, was easy to rent a scooter and kayak etc, loved exploring around. The restaurant was beautifully located and very poorly constructed with very little money invested into the facilities. Everything looks like it's done on a very tight budget including most of the staff. There were some exceptions as the Spa manager was fantastic +... More

Worst hotel experience I had for years. Very unfriendly manager that doesn't care, staff mainly Burmese without English/Thai skills (as cheaper than Thai), old and bad maintained. Our room was smelling like toilet (TripAdvisor doesn't allow me to write the word) the hole night and our complaint wasn't taken serious, the bathroom must have been broken for some time already....

Racha Island itself is a piece of Paradise. Rayaburi Resort is exposed to the best beach of the island, Siam Beach. The restaurant of Rayaburi is just in front of the sea. An excellent place for snorkling. The rooms and service of the Resort is excellent. They are very professional and helpful. Rayaburi Resort is an amazing experience.

The beach that this hotel is located on is beautiful (although at low tide you cant swim because the water goes all the way out to the coral reef.) The hotel itself is poorly managed and the building and facilities are all in need of maintenance. The only way this hotel would be value for money was if they reduced... More

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, with my husband and 7 years old daughter, following a few days stay in Phuket. The pictures in tripadvisor looked promising, as well as some reviews, however we couldn't be more disappointed. We travel quite often, specially in Asia for the last few years (4th visit to Thailand) and honestly this had to... More

Went here on a day trip from Phuket and wow was I mind blown. The beach is privately owned by the hotel so was so clean and peaceful. No noise just pure bliss. Went snorkelling and that again was great and quite a lot to sea as its all protected. The food at the restaurant was so fresh and delicious... More

Stayed for six days in one of the two Poolside Villa's with my girlfriend and baby daughter. The Poolside Villa is a two level house with bedroom on the 2. floor. The facilities of the house could use a kind hand. Water in bathroom sinks doesn't get hot and sprouts out irregularly. The 'kitchenette' on 1. floor does not have... More

To stay some time on Racha Yai is always something i did want to do. Rayaburi hotel has many separate buildings in a very big area. You get offered a free boat transfer to the island and back which is good service. We did get a free upgrade to the big building on the picture which was very nice. The... More

Really relaxing island. Make sure you take a good book because there is absolutely nothing to do but sit on the beach. Overall the rooms were really nice and clear. The resort is massive and it takes awhile to walk around. Not a bad restaurant and the boys behind the bar will make you any cocktail you like. We enjoyed... More
