We stayed four nights here as the third destination in our andaman adventures itinerary of the region, all the way from Koh Lipe to Phuket. The Railay Bay delivered perfectly. We didn’t go out much since our room and the resort’s large grounds had everything we wanted. That includes the large beachside swimming pool. A+ cocooning , recommended !

#1; For clarification: do what my title states. That alleviates ALOT of stress prior to arrival. Tides constantly changing but are generally high in the early morning. Check the internet. #2: know what you are buying. Only the privacy cottages and the Pool villas are sincerely on the west side but the rooms and deluxe cottages are on the east... More

We stayed 3 nights in a privacy cottage during low season, and loved having our own little patio/garden to hang out in. The resort has several pools that can be used and is a short walk to shops and food on either west or east beach. We preferred to eat outside the hotel [cheaper and better] but enjoyed the central...

Having read the reviews before I visited the hotel, I was prepared. The reviews were right. The hotel is in need of updating/upgrading. The pool area is badly maintained including collecting empty glasses/bottles etc. breakfast was poor. Evening meals however were excellent. In some reviews, people criticised the staff, however, I found them all lovely and helpful. One big error... More

The hotel area is huge and spans from East to West Railey. As such, your room may very well not be beach front. However, the beach front itself is beautiful and the restaurant location very good. The reception staff is however horrible. My friend got food poisoning and asked for a late check out. They could agree to no more... More

I wish that we would have combed through more reviews before booking this place. There are nicer places to stay on this peninsula-but on the east side for a fraction of the price. We were told the way to get there (from airport) was via long boat from Au Nang-but were totally shocked when we realized that meant hauling our... More

After staying in Aonang, we moved on to our second resort, recommended by andaman avdentures, which is the Railay Bay Resort. We booked the privacy cottage and we were thoroughly impressed. The room was fantastic and the decor was classy and minimalistic, much to my boyfriends delight. I have to say the even though lunch and dinner was good, as... More

We just came back from Railay Bay last weekend and, while the location was just beautiful, sadly we can't say the same thing about our experience at Railay Bay Resort & Spa. The resort has so much potential as it flanks both the East & West sides, with a seemingly good mixture of accommodation options. You get the best of... More

This resort is one of several on the island and from what we saw walking around, probably the best one, the views from the breakfast table are amazing. The pool butts up right against the beach. Room was good but starting to look a little tired - this is the only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars...staff very good,... More

We've been staying at this resort at least once a year or two for over 10 years and often recommended it to our friends. While the location is outstanding, as many of the reviews here would agree, the service has dived a bit and the prices are simply out of line now. Sadly our last trip there last week will... More
