We stayed for three or four nights and thought it was good. This hotel has a unique location situated just above the cliffs and above Railay east. While it's a little farther uphill it provides a spectacular view of the scenery and is close enough to the activities to access them all. Additionally, the pool's view is spectacular and definitely... More

A resort with friendly staff and a stunning setting. The pool area is beautiful and as you swim you can enjoy beautiful cliff face views out onto the sea. Railay is known for its rock climbing which is located right next to the resort and you can actually see people climb as you eat breakfast and swim in the pool.... More

The hotel was beautiful. Very clean and quiet. The room was large and the staff was very hospitable. I was able to preview the room prior to booking. I stayed an additional night because it was so comfortable. The staff was very gracious and U would most certainly return. It was a peaceful relaxing stay

Love Railay but not the hotel prices at Christmas so decided to give the Phutuwan a try as the family rooms were great value. Fell in love with the location of Phutuwan tucked away in the jungle with a great climbing wall next to the Ya Ya bar.Our family room was very spacious with a double bed, single bed and... More

I was a bit concerned about booking this resort because of past reviews but having been on Railay I did like the location of the Phutawan. Well I shouldn't have been concerned as the sea view room was just amazing. It was clean, spacious and comfortable. There were complimentary tea and coffee and a fridge stocked with drinks and other... More

This hotel was the best we have stayed at so far on our travels in Thailand, it is perfect for couples as well as a group of friends. It's up in the mountains which means unreal views, it's a bit of a trek walking up the hill with your bags, but the staff are sure to run to you with... More

Pros: clean large rooms, good infinity pool with great view, staff attentive (they fixed a broken plug straight away in our room), close to main areas for rock climbing, quiet compared to main beach, good value compared to other very expensive hotels on beach front. Con: 12-15 min walk from beach, with uphill but doable with a backpack but you'll... More

After reading the reviews, I really wanted to like the place. Railay is a wonderful place and really needs to be visited. First, people complained about the walk but that's part of the fun and really is very easy even with bags. If you are concerned, then take a longboat to Railay East rather than Railay West which is closer.... More

We stayed here for 4 nights over New Years. We paid for the transfer service from Krabi airport which involved a car pick up and then long tail transfer from Ao Nang. We were then met by a tractor which took us up the hill to the resort, it was our first experience of such a transfer in Thailand and... More

We stayed 3 nights at this resort and although it was inexpensive the customer service levels were poor. When we arrived there were no towels in our bedroom and we had to wait a whole day for these to be delivered only to be told they had run out! The wifi was intermittent and the bathroom often smelt of sewers.... More
