This was the first stop of our two week honeymoon. The service and warmth extended to us made us feel like family within the week we stayed. The hotel has a very modern theme and is extremely clean and well maintained, no minor feat for an establishment on an island in the jungle. Everything you do or interact with has... More

The Racha Resort is an excellent getaway for families and couples and the whole experience is out of this world. The staff and management are so friendly and helpful (Sam, Jib, Gok, the singers, Bandid, the GM Devan to name a few). As soon as you arrive at hectic Phuket airport and meet the limousine you are in great hands... More

This resort is just beautiful - the photos don't do it justice! The villas are spacious, clean and completely private. And the beaches have that perfect white sand and warm blue water they ever beach lover would die for. However, what really made our stay was the service. From the moment the staff picked us up at the airport, we... More

We enjoyed our 5 days at Racha, even though we became a bit bugged by all these boats coming and leaving during the day with sun-greedy tourists. But we knew it, before the booking was placed. What is nice: beautiful nature, mostly untouched; beaches, cristal-clear water, snorkeling and after 4 pm it's amazingly quiet. To escape the trouble on the... More

Dear Lalibella77: Thank you for choosing The Racha, Phuket as your holiday destination. Thailand's beaches are by law, open to public. Batok Bay fronting The Racha, is no exception. From approx. 10am to 3pm, it has its fair share of day visitors. Rest assured that your privacy is protected, as the resort's ground are only admissible to guests of The... More

The Racha Resort is amazingly great by itself. the surrounding is wonderful and quiet especially in early mornign and late afternoon. However, there're too many day tour visitors to the island from 9am to 3pm, they made the beaches too crowded and very noisy. Other than that, the rest of the resort is perfect.
