Railay Bay is situated in a wonderful location, you can reach only by water. To make sure you will not get "wet" ask them to arrange airport transfer - almost the same price as any other transfer offered there, but you can rely on them. Breakfast was good, with plenty of food; some dishes where the same every day and... More

Perfect for flash packers. Coming from the more expensive Village Resort, Railay Bay offered virtually the same for two thirds of the price. Book here if you want a peaceful, clean and comfortable place to stay on the nicest beach on the island. Considering there are more expensive places on the noisy and dirty East beach, you're much better off... More

The hotel facilities are good, but spa center is poor with no ar condicionar. Be carefull with your belongings inside the room, disappeared some Thai souveniers from our room, and there answer to what happened was "thanks for the info," not even an apology or excuse. Poor commitment to please the client.

Stayed here two nights first week of December. I think much of the negative reviews on here on the rooms are being a bit dramatic. Yes, the rooms aren't the most up-to-date but if you look at the rest of the island, I don't see how you can expect a 5 star luxury room. I thought our room was a... More

This hotel was lovely - stunning views, lovely pool, friendly staff. The main thing that let it down was how well the staff spoke English. There was many times that the staff didn't understand my food orders or our practical questions. Of course I don't expect perfect English, but the reception and waiting staff should be better trained with frequently... More

My wife and I came to spend the day and choose this restaurant for lunch on the beach. Pricy but what can you expect to eat and have drinks 30 feet from the water. Problem is that my wife's food was so bad she could not eat it. My stir fry was good. We told our waiter, and she took... More

We arrived at Railey beach with our backpacks looking for a place to stay. When we checked with the ladies at the front desk they told us the hotel was booked and only the very priciest rooms were available. After checking online we noticed there was a basic room available and so we booked it ourselves. When we returned to... More

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights, in general was a well located hotel, breakfast was very good, the room was clean and tidy, the furniture was a little old but functional. The location of the hotel is right on the beach with very beautiful lime stone rocks surrounding the beach. For what you pay, Railay beach in general... More

First, let me note that on beauty alone, Railay Beach stands tall. The entire area is absolutely gorgeous and well worth the look. Unfortunately, it seems as though Thailand decided that every disgruntled, mean, apathetic and rude Thai must be dropped on Railay to make you feel like a fool. Railay was our final stop on a 21 day exploration... More

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights . Whilst the hotel is set on a beautiful beach there is a limited selection of restaurants and getting to anywhere outside of Railay proved difficult. There are plenty of long boats willing to take you to near by Ao Nang where there is much more going on . However you... More
