We booked five nights at this hotel as a treat at the end of a three week holiday spent travelling through Vietnam before flying over to Krabi. I wish we hadn't bothered. The resort is accessed only by long tail boat which we were fine with but from reading the reviews on here I don't think some people are aware... More

We stayed at Railay Beach Resort during our trip to Thailand and it made a good base to explore Railay. The feel is more commercial and faceless compared to the other places where we stayed in Thailand where we actually got to know the staff, but the accomodation was clean and well maintained and the location was great on the...

I have never ever complained about a hotel. But my boyfriend and I were highly disappointed with this resort. We are the kind of people to not make a fuss of anything. We have travelled around the world staying in some really cheap and crazy places. But when we got here (Thinking we could treat ourselves to a romantic and... More

We decided to splash out on a hotel in Railay and was worth the expense as the extra touches, especially transfer, was worth it. From pick up from the airport, transfer to boat taxi and being dropped from the boat right at the hotel to being picked up with golf cart and driven to reception was magic. On arrival in... More

This is our fourth time staying at this place. We stayed in the privacy cottage. Comes with a jaccuzi and very nice sunning area. The restaurant food was great too. However, they could improve on the attitude of their Wait Staff - we asked for hot water during breakfast and were served lukewarm water. When we asked the waitress for... More

We arrived to our room that smelled like sewer. We asked to change rooms and they did so immediately. The pool,view and location is nice. We only had breakfast and drinks there so we can't comment on the dinning. They do need a blender at the pool bar though. The rooms could use some maintaince and deep cleaning. I am... More

It is a great place both for the location and the quality of the room and services. The service is below average, though not compared to Railay in general. They just have not caught up with the service concept. That does not mean people are not friendly, they are, but slow and a tad indifferent. We loved our room, the... More

This hotel is in a great location but I'm not sure there are any bad locations in Railay Beach, it's just a beautiful place. We stayed in one of the small cottages which are nice and very private. Our room was fine except the mattress wasn't great, and the bathroom has these annoying drainage trenches in the floor which are... More

This suited our needs perfectly. Having been to Bangkok and chaing mai the week before we needed a two day break from the hustle and bustle of the North. Note - I wouldn't stay here to come on holiday for a two week break. The hotel does have some issues with cleanliness, tidiness etc. However if your using it as... More
