Just visited The Racha and enjoyed an excellent Honeymoon. Staff are very friendly and customer service was excellent. Made arrangements for a Honeymoon Package; included a Spa and Dinner at the Star Deck. The entire experience was surreal. Highly recommended destination for couples.

Hotel environment is fabulous! Nice beach, white tone one-story villa, frangipani trees and coconut trees make the hotel so romantic! The lemongrass scent we choose is fatanstic. Very sweet memory in The Racha.

This resort is wonderful! Be sure to book the boat trip (provided by the hotel) from Chalong Bay to the island in advance so you're guaranteed a space (we asked our previous hotel to do it for us and there was no problem). The cost of this is payable at check out and is not included in the room price... More

We stayed here for 7 days which made us eligible for a chauffeur driven transfer from Phuket to the speedboat transfer at Chalong Bay. Speedboat journey takes around 40 minutes in a boat of around 20 people plus the luggage. We arrived at a plastic jetty with a wobbly walk to the bus which took us the 5 minute journey... More
