My partner and I spent 4 nights at The Racha in January and it was an absolute delight from start to finish. We began our trip at The Racha lounge at Chalong Pier in Phuket (I believe you can organise a chauffeur through the hotel from the airport if needed), from arrival at the lounge our luggage was taken off...

After an unexpected passport delay we had to delay our visit and rebook for a letter date. The staff at The Racha could not have been more helpful and sympathetic. They continuously go out of their way to accommodate whatever needs you have. This was our third time returning and we look forward to the next escape to "heaven". It... More

The Villa was very clean and corresponded to the requirements of a five star hotel. The island itself is very beautiful and I enjoyed a lot the pretty and at the same time modest paths around the island. It was also good to have snorkling locations on different directions (could choose according to wind direction) within walking distance. The best... More

The Racha is a beautiful and luxurious hotel. The staff are most welcoming, caring and efficient. They make you feel taken care off at all times, providing an excellent service with a warm heart. From the reception to the hike to the sunset point and the breakfast with champagne, everything you may need is provided, including a daily yoga session... More

We arrived into Phuket after a quick 3 day holiday in the Maldives and it was going to be very hard to impress us after being on our own private island... However The Racha managed to do so!

It is important to know when to come to this resort and where to stay in it - when you do it right, everything is just perfect there. Just remember that from the end of the year and till the Lunar New Year, the place will be full of mainland Chinese with children and grandparents, then closer to April-May Americans... More

Perfect white sand, clear turquoise water, immaculate paths leading to charming villas. An infinity pool overlooking it all. giant monitor lizzards ducking into small ponds. Terrific food. They do everything right at this property. There are day-trippers but they are actually quite fun to watch.

We have just returned from staying at 'The Racha' for 6 nights and it was perfect. The island is beautiful, the hotel is so luxurious and the friendly, smiling staff cannot do enough to ensure a perfect holiday. The little extra touches that the hotel provide were wonderful. We will definitely return one day..............
