One thing any visitor should keep in mind is that here you pay for staying on the island, not for staying at the hotel. And the island is so beautiful (just don’t look down while walking it’s paths and trails, then you won’t see the garbage and waste distributed evenly along them), that for the hotel it is just enough...

Rayaburi Resort's friendly and attentive staff and the Rayaburi's location are far and above its jewel in the crown! One gets the feeling that the resort was built for more prosperous times; the resort was very underbooked which actually suited us fine! The food at the restaurant was arguably the best Thai food on the island, and overlooking the beach...

My girlfriend and I came to Rayaburi for 4 nights, to get away from the hustle and bustle of Phuket over New Years Eve. We had a great time on the island, and found that the Rayaburi was adequate for our stay. There is a stunning swimming pool, comfortable and clean rooms with AC, a nice bed and warm water...

Well worth a visit. Clean and tidy room above the pool that was in good condition. Stayed with wife and two kids, had two extra beds brought to the room, was no problem. Not overcrowded, friendly staff. Ok would have been nice with some more restaurant options etc, but it is a small island off the main tourist route so...

Do NOT go to this Resort. We booked 5 nights and stayed 4. It ruined our holidays. It started with the conformation about the boat transfer. They emailed the timetable asking wich boat we are want to take ending in telling us 12 hours before that there will be no boat for this time. How can you plan your vacation...

Takeaway: if you keep your expectations low, your stay at Rayaburi might just be incredible fun - a huge plus on your trip to Thailand; however, most people's expectations are too high for this place - and this is due to the high price the hotel charges and they come and are disappointed. I give the hotel THREE STARS to...

Had 4 days at the resort together with teenager and small children. There is only one restaurant on the islands ( hotel area) and it is quite expensive compared to the mainland. The food however is very good. It was a pleasant stay as we had the beach and the pool almost for our self all day. Where upgraded to...

I have to say that I am a Mother of a almost 3yo very active boy.. And his safety is very important to me. Also, usually we stay at 5star hotels so a pinch of salt is required when you read my review. That being said, I would never stay at this resort again with children. We got a big...

I have mixed feelings about this place, and looking at other reviews, I see that many other people do too. My problems actually started with the booking itself. As you know, to get to the hotel you need to pay for speedboat transfer (THB 1200 pp) on checkin. I had a choice of booking with an agency like AGODA or...
