First of all, yes, I would go back to this resort! For the price it is in an INCREDIBLE location. The rooms are not right on the beach but there is a great pool with loungers that are. If you want a 4/5 star hotel go next door and pay the $300-600 per night for their room. Otherwise stay here... More

We only stayed here a couple of nights as we didn't know what to expect from our stay in Railay, so didn't want all our eggs in one basket. Railay Bay basically trades off its position on the west side of Railay as the pool and restaurant have fantastic views looking out to sea. If, like us, you get one... More

Stayed in a garden bungalow, the room was nice but the door didn't lock very securely. It looked easy to break into. Good on site facilities with ATM and mini mart. Pool was beautiful, the view was a massive bonus point. Great location and lots of bars and places to eat nearby. There are two pools one is rather shady... More

I came here for a two week holiday and used the pictures and positive reviews to select this hotel, a mistake on my part. The first room I was shown was incredibly dated, had mold on the walls, damp on the ceilings and was not what I'd consider 'clean'. Location wise, the beach and limestone rocks are stunning, neither of... More

it's a great escape from the madness. a good location to explore the more peaceful side of beach life. all the basics are there. a great place to pass the time. friendly, clean and safe. 4 stars maybe a stretch.

We had a very pleasant stay in this hotel located in a unique landscape. The Est part of the "island" has a super chill atmosphere and we spent our best days in Thailand, here. You can find all what you need here!

Bit of a mixed bag. The resort has a great setting stretching across Railay. Our room (deluxe) was comfortable with everything we needed and close to the hotel restaurant, pools, swimming beach and walking street.The grounds are very pretty and pool and restuarant area was great. The room is a little dated and probably could use a bit of perking... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in July as part of a long weekend away from Singapore. The hotel was fine for what we needed. It is not a 4 star however if you avoid eating here (apart from breakfast) then it is a good place to base yourself. It is a bit worn as described in other reviews however... More

We arrived at the Railay Bay Resort and Spa for a 13 day vacation. We were checked in and shown our room, which was a One bedroom Cottage with Spa Bath. As we stepped inside the unlocked door to the private area of the cottage, we were met with stagnant water and mud, rather than the high quality 4 star... More

Very nice family-friendly hotel with spacious bungalows. The staff is friendly, and the location is perfect on this wonderful beach. Our two-week stay was really pleasant, and the atmosphere is nice and relaxed.
