Phuket is a crowed touristic place, but if you want to enjoy a quiet Phuket go to The Racha you will enjoy the benefits of a private island, luxury service, you will be very relaxed, that is a warranty,

Last April we have been to The Racha for almost two weeks. I have been there almost 9 years ago as well, but then I could only stay for a couple of nice.

Beautiful resort relocated just close off shore distance from Phuket but truly amazing. Since arrival, you will be provided with tropical welcome drink and freshly scented cold towel. The lobby is just small & tidy - very cozy, it's 270 degrees ocean view. The room is simply amazing, clean and comfortable - nothing better than great ocean view from your... More

We vacationed at The Racha for five nights during the month of April and it surpassed our already high expectations in every way. The Racha came highly recommended by two of our close friends, which is why we chose that specific resort. This resort is definitely one of Thailand's hidden gems! Not only was the service on point, but they... More

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 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).

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.
