Went here on honeymoon and it was absolutely incredible! Would definitely recommend it. Lovely resort, with fantastic facilities and great food. Nice little island too. Room was brilliant, with lovely view and huge bathroom and comfy bed and all the mod cons you would expect.

I am writing this review while still at The Racha. We came here 10 years ago for our honeymoon when the resort first opened, 10 years to the day we are back, and couldn't be happier.

I'm a Phuket veteran, having traveled there for years trying out different places to snorkel and dive. My girlfriend and I recently stayed at The Racha for the first time several weeks ago and stayed in their Junior Pool Suite. Now, I've tried a number of fancy digs in and around Phuket, Phi Phi, Koh Samui, etc but this place... More

We arrived stressed and needing a break. From the airport to the hotel things were smooth. We stayed for four nights in a Grand Pool Villa (102) - and it was amazing. The resort sits happily on a beautiful beach nestled into the hillside. It doesn't seek to over impress - until you walk into your room and look out... More

They say the second time is usually sweeter than the first. Nothwithstanding, the weather our second stay within a 5 month lapse was truly relaxing. This beachfront property fronting a crystal clear turqoise blue sea is a tranquil haven with lush tropical landscaping, nicely designed spacious villas, friendly service and good food.

Dear Kamil Thank you very much for your kind review. I am glad that your stay with us was a pleasant one even though it was during the low season. The Racha is very secluded as you say and a great place to bring friends and families to chill out for few days. I hope to welcome you back soon.... More

Just visited The Racha and enjoyed an excellent Honeymoon. Staff are very friendly and customer service was excellent. Made arrangements for a Honeymoon Package; included a Spa and Dinner at the Star Deck. The entire experience was surreal. Highly recommended destination for couples.

Hotel environment is fabulous! Nice beach, white tone one-story villa, frangipani trees and coconut trees make the hotel so romantic! The lemongrass scent we choose is fatanstic. Very sweet memory in The Racha.

This resort is wonderful! Be sure to book the boat trip (provided by the hotel) from Chalong Bay to the island in advance so you're guaranteed a space (we asked our previous hotel to do it for us and there was no problem). The cost of this is payable at check out and is not included in the room price... More
