I've decided to write a second review today about this wonderful resort because my husband and I have experienced today an extraordinary customer's service from the Racha reservation office and I wanted to share with you, my fellow travelers. The first time we visited the Racha was in March 2011 and we just fell in love with this beautiful resort.... More

The Racha was a great hotel and a perfect paradise-like getaway location. From the moment you step off the boat you know you're going to enjoy relaxing on the beach. We had gotten to the Racha 2 nights later than we would've liked because of snow in Istanbul cancelling our flights which meant we would miss their speed boat to... More

Arriving by boat to this beautiful island was so exciting! The setting is just gorgeous, the most beautiful beach with soft white sand and clear blue sea. The hotel is equally impressive - villas are ultra modern and trendy with all the latest hi-tech gadgets, however our private pool was a bit pointless as half undercover and got no sun,... More

For me this is a best honeymoon place in the world.. Really beautiful place.. Very well located villas... Privacy is of utmost importance to the staff.. Yess but place can be a tough destination for vegetarians although chef tried to help us with beg dishes but they were not so good.. Overall staying experience was awesome simply awesome..

The Racha is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. We were initially supposed to spend 4D3N at The Racha and then to another hotel on the main island Phuket. At the end of our second night, my husband and I decided to cancel the reservation for our next hotel and to extend our stay at The... More

We travel a lot, but this is the only hotel we visited so far with a personal touch. It was a great idea for the management to organize a guest welcoming cocktail. We've been so happy to meet Devan, Claudio, Guide and all others as they became our guides during our stay:). Most impressive was our hiking trip organized by... More

We had a wonderful time staying in a beach front villa in January for five nights. Batok beach and bay in front of the resort is quite beautiful and the villa itself was very well designed and equipped. We enjoyed swimming, paddling and snorkeling in the bay every day and relaxing overlooking it while enjoying a book or a drink... More
