We took the Raya Father Tour to the Racha Yai island with snorkeling and a night in the Raya Father Resort. We bought the trip from a street tour agent in Kata for 2200BHT per person. The location of the resort is great with about a 10 minute walk to Patok Bay, Ter Bay, Lah Bay and even less to... More

We stayed here for one night on Raya Island. The accommodation was old run down, dirty and staff quite unhelpful as their English was not good. Would not return to this resort as we were given it as a package deal with Raya father tours. The tour itself was worth the $$ but in future I would recommend booking your... More

We stayed in the father resort bungalow. The rooms had all useful facilities , comfortable clean beds, AC which saved us from the heat. Being low season everything is very quite. This is beneficial as the beaches we can almost have all to ourselves. The staff are lovely, seemingly shy but helpful. Food is very authentic fast service. This destination... More

Raya Father sits in the middle between Patok Beach and Konkare Bay, ie the farthest from sea on Racha Yai. Still, you can walk in less than 15 minutes to the sea so the location is ok. It offers a restaurant and a range of smaller and bigger rooms, aimed at the low-to-middle budget travellers. No pool, some rooms with... More

we asked a travel guy on a street in Patong to get us to Raya Island for 3 nights whilst we were staying in Thailand in February 2011 and this he did. He pitched us just right by picking Raya Father resort as we just wanted a budget priced room. When we got there we enjoyed it so much that... More

I do not have a single positive thing to say (except that some of the personnel was very nice). Our room had mold in the roof, the room smelled nice at first after the cleaning but hours later like a dirty drain filled with pee and poop. The room was not cleaned during our whole stay (3 nights), nor did... More

We were told this would be an ok trip for our 2.5 yr old toddlers. The weather wasn't great, we shouldn't have gone but we made the mistake of going. The kids were sick for the hour or so crossing, asked if there were any kids life jackets, got thrown something you would find in a marine museum about 10... More

Only went there for lunch and dinner, as I was staying in the Rayaburi Resort, just 5 min walk. This little hostel has a restaurant which is pretty good, with a lot of options in the menu. The price is really good compared to my resort and other high end places, and the quality was great. I ate two times,... More

We went on a trip to Raya from Phuket with Raya Father. Trip was superb, including transfers, speed boat, snorking, and trip back. Lunch was also super. Only downside is the room (cheap small one). It was cheap and small! It was hyginicaly clean, but a bit old and tatty. Bed rock hard. Generator/pump running behind all night. Bathroom was... More
