This was the 3rd time we had stayed at the Racha, the first being back in 2011 for our honeymoon. We loved it so much we keep coming back, and have tried other resorts in Phuket too along the way. However, this time, perhaps because for the first time we went with an infant, there were a few things we... More

This was our second stay at the Racha (this time for 6 nights) and truly it has still the best sandy white beach and clear waters that we have ever seen. It feels like an intimate resort due to their villa accommodation setting and our membership with SLH enabled us to get some perks like a free room upgrade and... More

Very good location, good interior design and nice environment. However, the international restaurant serves rather low quality and expensive food. Service is slow and checking in and out takes a long time. Wifi signal is weak. We booked 2 nights and got upgraded because the electricity wasn't working.

We recently stayed at The Racha for part of our honeymoon. A sensational resort with superb service and attention to detail!! Although the beaches were crowded during the day, we stayed in our private pool and explored the island until the tourists left. The only let down were the restaurants! Disappointing food and certainly not worthy of a 5 star... More

Good food, beautiful beach, clean and very helpful staff. The only non positive experience are the tourist boats that invade the beach from 10 to 14...and that was the time were we headed to the pool and for lunch. Then the peace came back. The reef is pretty cute, nice fishes and calm streams. The private tours are expensive but... More

Dear Chriswalti We would like to thank you for having chosen the Racha in your recent stay and for your valuable comments. The resort front beach is open to public, as are all beaches in Thailand, however we do have 3 other beaches around the island which are more secluded. Hopefully we will be seeing you here again soon for... More

My husband and I had this booked as the final stop on our honeymoon in Asia and we only wish we could stay longer! As soon as we arrived to Racha we decided we needed another 2 nights and the Racha staff (B from memory) helped us make that happen. We stayed in the incredible private pool villa and it... More

I spent 2 nights at this amazing resort on Racha Island and I had a wonderful time. First of all, the deluxe room was very comfortable and I really enjoyed all the provided amenities especially tons of movies in the player. The breakfast was really good.

We asked our holiday planners over at andaman adventures where we could find the ultimate in style and pampering, away from the hordes. Thats when they introduced us to the Racha, and we haven’t regretted it a moment ! Even with a discount it wasn’t what you would call budget, but cheap and quality don’t mix, we have learned that...
