Arrival by Longtail to land on a deserted pier jutting out from golden sand into a deep blue sea, being met by a member of staff and a luggage cart to stroll thru the jungle on brick paths to the lodge is an magical start to the holiday. We stayed in o the older lodge but the one nearest the... More

THIS PLACE IS ONLY FOR NATURE LOVERS WHO AGREE TO PAY DOUBLE FOR DOUBLE LESS !... 1) Poor accommodation : bungalow has no cabinet/wallet to allow clients to store clothes during the stay, no basic interior furniture/design, no bedside tables, nothing making the accommodation a bit warmer or personalized… No water heater, no towels. Many ecolodges BOTH RESPECT THE ENVIRONMENT... More

We stayed 7 nights on Koh Ra and we enjoyed it very much. The bungalows are simple but clean, well built so you feel alone. The beach is clean and again, you feel alone! And you can find a spot in the shade almost all day long! Everyone was very friendly and helpfull. If you are afraid to have nothing... More

I mean it is really like in the film except for the drug dealersn (there are none) and the beach is not white but golden. No Streets, no Shops, no Scammers, no Pubs, no drunken people, no restaurants just pure nature and nice people. The Beach is lonely and when you are lucky you can have it all for yourself.... More

Looking for a laid back, superbly managed island retreat a short distance from the frenetic Phuket world. Koh Ra is just that. We spent 5 days on the island enjoying a magnificent beach a two minute saunter from our beach house. The only people on this palm tree beach were the same friendly people with whom you share an amazing... More

There are so many places you can go to in Thailand if you are looking for a nice quiet beach. But Koh Ra Ecolodge has to be at the top of the list. What a great little island, rain forest, secluded beaches, mangroves and best of all the lodge is the only thing there. No cars, no motorbikes, no 7/11... More

A wonderful secret, we are almost reluctant to share, as Koh Ra is definitely off the beaten track. It has everything you need though, wonderful bungalows, much above the Thai average. And the owners are the sort of people who go straight to your heart and stay there ! Do make Koh Ra part of your visit, and experience a... More

I was fortunate to spend 2 nights at the Eco-lodge. Not having any expectations as my visit was booked by Anderman Discoveries, there was an immediate wow....striking mountains, dense rainforest and pristine beaches. The lodge facilities are spaced within the beach/forest fringe, the birdlife are your neighbours. I really think the beach could be a "secret" surfing spot at certain... More

When booking this place, we knew it would be basic. We knew beforehand, that there were only buffet meals three times a day, electricity between 18-23 and jungle wildlife just outside of the bungalow. With exciment and curiosity we entered longtailboat to reach out Ko Ra. First surprise was a abandoded concrete pier and road(!) through the jungle. We arrived... More
