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... More

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... More

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... More

This is not something I normally do, but I'm going to write an extensive review about this place to try to consolidate the many mixed reviews I've read about it and try to help you to make your decision. First of all, I travel 30+ weeks a year and I rely heavily on reviews to make my decisions about where... More

Dirty place. Rude staff. Overcrowded. Charge you for everything ! Huge disappointment ! Looks nothing like the pictures. Do not book it ! We ended up leaving after checking in. It was such a disappointment and we did not feel welcome at all. This place only caters for huge chinese groups - they are noisy and take over the place!!... More

The architecture of the hotel is beautiful and the beach is great. But, the room was so old (the bath was unusable because it leaked) and the minibar dirty. The pool was beautiful but too much chlorine in it. The pool's shower was green because never cleaned. There is no services in this hotel. The pool's bar was closed and... More

We discovered the beautiful Racha island 10 years ago and we stayed 3-4 years ago at this hotel. It was a brand new one with friendly but non-professional staff. Today, 3 years later the staff is still friendly but not professional at all and the hotel was not maintained and dirty... 5 days after arriving the noodle soup at the... More

The hotel had very friendly staff and a beautiful beach with few people. The restaurant was good. Breakfast was not the best I've had but quite ok. The store is expensive but I've seen higher prices elsewhere as well. The rooms were ok and the pool as well. Renovation is needed of some stuff. For instance, the bathtub had a... More

When you imagine Thailand in your mind…crystal clear water, white sand beaches, palm trees & blue skies think of the Rayaburi Resort as you will find this paradise. Absolutely stunning location & resort just a short speedboat ride from Phuket. Don’t miss the restaurant set just steps away from the beach. Great pasta, salad, thai food and an affordable wine...
