We arrived in Railay without pre-booking a hotel and we stumbled upon Phutawan Resort. We were very happy with our stay. There is a beautiful outdoor infinity pool with a view of the ocean and cliffs. The room was large and very clean. Although not right on the beach, it is secluded from the rest of the resorts and definitely... More

Came for a few days in July 2015. Stayed in a Tawan villa room. Given how cheap it was, we weren't expecting much but were very pleasantly surprised. Big, clean villa with a lovely porch, nice toilet. The pool is the star of the show though. Beautiful views overlooking the bay and the cliffs. Can't believe some people are giving... More

Stayed here for three nights. When we arrived at the pier we were a bit lost as to where to go. Someone asked where we were staying and they told us to follow this other guy, who was a worker at the resort. We waited with him for a few minutes and then a tractor brought us up the hill... More

Arrived at the pier without anybody giving us an idea of where to go to get to our hotel. This is not a complaint it is what to expect when you arrive at Railay Beach. We stopped & had a drink & asked for directions to our resort, turns out ours is one of the highest, but again no problem,... More

A fantastic find - the resort is high up in the hills, in the middle of jungle & cliffs surrounding the resort. The centrepiece of the resort is a infinity pool looking out to the sea surrounded by jungle & towering limestone cliffs, monkeys & gibbons screeching. It's quite spectacular. The sun loungers by the pool are a great place... More

great bungalow in jungle garden, close to idyllic pool with fantastic view. Clean, comfortable room. Railay is beautiful and Phutawan is ideally situated to get easily to either east or west beach. West Beach is the perfect Thai beach you see in all the ads.....but even more beautiful that any photo. I CANT IMAGINE WHY ANYONE WOULD GIVE PHUTAWAN OR... More

I can't imagine why anybody here would be giving negative reviews of this place, this place was probably the most beautiful spots we stayed in our 2 months in Aoutheast Asia. The hotel staff were all quite friendly (especially the front desk girl), the infinity pool was beautiful, the view of the limestone cliff faces was astounding and the rooms... More

I was really looking forward to staying on Railay Beach, and was very disappointed. We booked and prepaid for four nights at Phutawan, but left after the first night. The hotel is okay, but the customer service wasn't great. I had confirmed airport transportation thru email, but no one was there when we arrived. When I called them, instead of... More

Extremely great value for what it is. The hotel it self is relatively clean and the infinity pool over looking the east Railay bay with rock climbing on your door step. The hotel can pick you up from the pier in tractor and the service is great. Highly recommended especially if you like peace and quiet. Its only a 10... More
