This was my first trip to The Racha and certainly will not be the last. It is nestled on the hillside above the most beautiful bay of crystal clear blue waters and white sands. I think what makes this place is the fact that they have everything you may want or need but it feels like a small private luxury... More

This was our third trip to The Racha. Yet again, it was worth making the effort from South Africa. We stayed for 5 days, but wished we could stay longer.

The Thumbs-Up : Eco-Lux Resort Concept, Location, Spa, Pool & Beach Lounging. We still love the well designed, integrated and low-rise whitewashed villas built on eco-friendly concept. The location of the remote island certainly supports the concept, and helps keeping it isolated from the typical "noise & pollutants" of the main island.
