We stayed in a basic air-con room, it was very clean and had everything we needed. Before heading to Railay, you need to be aware that accommodation is more expensive than other similar places. The pool was lovely, it became quite dirty over our stay, but when brought to the staffs attention they took care of it that afternoon. The... More

I had been staying in hostels and backpacker accommodation for 2 months, and decided to splash out on this hotel at the end of my trip. Lovely place, amazing infinity style pool (I gather that's new) and friendly staff. Only criticism is the lack of free breakfast. When you're paying that much it seems a bit cheeky to charge in...

Having read most of the reviews for this place I noticed that most of the bad ones are for the wooden budget bungalows. Phutawan has three room levels, the lowest of which are the older B500 per night fan bungalows. Bear in mind that on Railay you will be very hard pushed to find accommodation this cheap and you do...

I know I am in Thailand but never experienced worse staff. It was like they (lady boys in my opinion) were doing us a favor by taking our money. We stayed one night at 500 baht, which is fair for railay. The bungalow looked like it was gonna fall apart any day. And the towels they provided smelled like they... More

As a backpacker and the lack of cheap accommodations in Railay, I stayed 4 nights in a bamboo bungalow (500 baht) which was basically good value for Railay and the price. These bungalows looks close to collapse but are rather big. Note that you receive no upper sheet but a large towel. The rubbish bin were not emptied neither in... More

There is still lots of work going on here and unfortunately our cabin faced the building work. It’s not too noisy but if you were wanting a sleep in your probably not going to get it. Breakfast was pretty basic and delivered to our room due to the work going on. The main downfall was our bathroom, the shower was... More

This is a nice little resort tucked away from the busy areas of Railay. It's a bit of a hike to get to but it's worth it if you're looking for an affordable accommodation. Our room was 700b per night and was very clean and well kept. The peaceful location and view are the best qualities of this resort as... More

I stayed here for 5 nights to chill out by the beach for a few days. I heard good things about this hotel and place from my climbing friends. Paid 1600BHT per night for a bungalow. In some ways it was good value for money. I didn't feel the staff were very friendly or were wilin to help much. Had... More

We stayed here for a couple off nights while climbing in Railay. Bamboo bungalow with fan for 300B. We stayed first one night at the Rapala Rockwood Resort and this is definitely much better. Beds are good, sheets are clean, staff was friendly. The bungalows show their age but are spacious and have a big porch. Only cold shower. The... More

The hotel is lovely. The rooms are clean, have nice views, and the price is good, however, the staff has a terrible attitude. It just seemed they where doing me a favour each time I would ask for something. I tried dealing with different staff members including 3 different receptionists, and each time they had a bad attitude and just... More
