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.

Too expensive for what it offers. I was on my honeymoon trip. We were expecting exclusive experiences which we definitely did not have there. Had to pay $1,200.00 for a speed boat trip in order to visit the famous Phi Phi Islands. Obviously due to the amount paid, we expected an amazing speed boat, however it was a diving boat,... More

We came here for a wedding and were so sad when the time came to leave. The Racha has a true understanding of customer service.
