My wife and I spent four nights at Railay Bay Resort, hoping to have a great New Years Eve (2014/2015) on the beach in Krabi. Railay Bay had a few rooms left, and in order to book these, they forced people to accept the 300 USD buffet and subsequent live music offering on new years eve. That drove the price... More

I was very pleasantly surprised when we stepped into this hotel. We were expecting something very corporate, especially simply enjoying a tropical holiday organised by andaman adventures, who got us good prices and great rooms at all our resorts. But in they picked the perfect spot in Railay to stay. Beachfront location, romantically designed suite, and tasty food all over.... More

We ate here due to its fantastic location... Eating here completely wiped out 3 days of our holiday. We were food poisoned. As soon as we had eaten it we didn't feel right. Don't eat here. A massive shame due to its fantastic location. Sort it out please?

We spend 2 nights at this hotel. The beach in Railay West is absolutely breathtaking! Our room (deluxe bungalow) was spacious and clean, the pool was nice and the staff (especially at the reception) was friendly and helpful. The food (and the morning buffet) at the restaurant was not good. I would highly recommend anyone staying in Railay Bay to... More

Best location in my opinion. It's right on Railay West with easy access to Railay East if you want to go to Phra Nang cave beach. Room was very spacious too and you could find most you need provided by the hotel - beach mat, beach bag, umbrellas, flash light, etc

We been at Phi Phi twice and coming back cause we really like it. Nice to have the pool in the middle of the walkway. You can find many nice spots on the beach, but try to avoid the places where all the food boats stops - close to the monkey cave. The longer you walk at the "backside" at... More

Hotel located at perfect spot, great view! Restaurant is awesome but too expensive compare to Phi Phi and Phuket. Hotel room is the worst thing I have ever stayed in my entire life. I know I booked just a deluxe room so I didn't expect much but it is a lot worse than I thought. I tried to upgrade but... More

On our second stop with Andaman Sky's triple destination holiday, we stopped at Railay Bay resort on the very beautiful Railay Beach. I have to say Railay West beach is gorgeous and the Phra Nang Beach is righ next to it. Even though everything on this little beach is quite expensive, the resort delivers on all front. The rooms are... More

We came for a sunset dinner to the resort restaurant - the sunset was the best part. Food is fine but expensive, service is very slow. I've had better street food. Give it a miss if you're after good food and good service. The Railay Beach cocktail is very drinkable, if you do eat here get one!
