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. From the office at the pier to the checkout process you feel well cared for. They have several restaurants and a multitude of activities to offer. The beach is breathtaking and he pool is so...

It sits on a very beautiful beach with good quality powdery sand. The resort has two general shared pools and two restaurants, a tennis court, spa and gym.... More

I stayed at the racha for 6 nights, the hotel is excellent, I booked two bed room pool villa, what I didn't like is that the beach was crowded with day visiting tourists, only time you can enjoy is early morning or after 4 pm There are no children activities; kids club, play ground. Staff are very friendly but don't... More

The Racha is a very nice resort, well maintained, very nice staff and well positioned on a stunning beach just 12 miles off Phuket. Day trip visitors do make the beach reasonable busy between 10am and 4:00pm, but with recent government changes there are no more beds and umbrella's placed on the beach, which makes the day trip visitors less...

It's wonderful to hear your stay with us was the "The Perfect Get Away" and that you most enjoyed the venues, villa,the view and the service.

Just back from my 8th visit to The Racha and I’m already missing it terribly!

It seriously felt like I died and gone to heaven when I arrived at The Racha. It was breathtakingly beautiful and the hotel's service and food were also excellent. It is a lot more expensive than the normal Thai prices but I guess price speaks quality :-). The staff were wonderful and the managers made time to speak to us... More
