The hotel had very friendly staff and a beautiful beach with few people. The restaurant was good. Breakfast was not the best I've had but quite ok. The store is expensive but I've seen higher prices elsewhere as well. The rooms were ok and the pool as well. Renovation is needed of some stuff. For instance, the bathtub had a... More

When you imagine Thailand in your mind…crystal clear water, white sand beaches, palm trees & blue skies think of the Rayaburi Resort as you will find this paradise. Absolutely stunning location & resort just a short speedboat ride from Phuket. Don’t miss the restaurant set just steps away from the beach. Great pasta, salad, thai food and an affordable wine...

My family and I spent 4 days and three nights on the island. The best memories were the white sandy beaches and the clear blue water. The kids mostly enjoyed the pool and the room. Be aware that they do charge for children 10 years old or older. We had to take a mandatory extra bed. This worked out fine... More

Let me start with the nice things.. They are the only resort with a private beach where there is no access from day trippers therefore almost desert (however not the nicest one). Receptionist and the rest of the staff were very nice and prompt to help you. They have arranged a boat only for us on our way back as... More

We stayed in a garden room for 3 nights and I think this is about the right amount of time. Racha is absolutely stunning but there isn't a great deal to do. You're not advised to leave the hotel grounds after 5pm which is quite restrictive in terms of where you eat and what you can do. This might suit... More

This hotel is ok and relatively simple. However the spot is gorgeous. Rooms are nice. It is on a spectecular beach. The restaurant has great food, great servers, and we enjoyed Kitty. One can snorkel all around the island. It starts to be slightly over crowded.

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....
