We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The location was just perfect for us - relaxing, sunny, white sand beach with different tones of green water... The beach is scenic, when I got there finally thought that we had arrived to paradise. The hotel is ok. Room is spacious, but I had the impression that they do not clean...

Racha is gorgeous for a get away from it all. Rayaburi sits on a beach protected by a reef and hence the day trippers who arrive at 11 and leave at 3 from the beach of the Racha. Rayaburi's beach is spectacular. Hotel is solid, comfortable and good staff etc. Let down by the food - breakfast is ok but...

We were in rayaburi resort for 4 nights. It is very well located in front of a wonderful bay with a very nice beach. It's very peaceful, not so much day trip boats (they prefer the bay in front of the racha resort). The quality of breakfast is nice and the restaurant is just in front of the beach; restaurany...

My fiance and I planned for a nice romantic 2 day kickoff to our trip at this resort on Racha Ya Island. We booked through Agoda.com so we had paid in full before arrival. We booked in May and took our trip in November. One of the things that were changed/added to the fine print was that there is only...

Hotel's large surroundings are beautiful and kept clean. The Siam Bay beach is very nice and quiet compared with the daily hectic buzz in the Batok bay which is just a 10 minute walk away. The pool area with new accommodation was under construction during our stay.This area is located some 200m from the beach inland. The beachfront rooms are...

Service is great, food is alrite, the beach is clean and clear but with alot of rocks underneath. the lagoon room doesn't has a good view. The staffs are friendly but they are not trained to speak english, so be patient or speak to the managers if you need anything.

Don't really want to tell the world about this place but..what a find! Low key rustic charm with first class staff and snorkelling from the sandy beach - paradise found in our books! We booked this on a whim and fell in love immediately. For some of our time here we were the only guests; their loss was certainly our...

Is it Racha or Raya? The names seem to be interchangeable. Whatever it is, both names mean paradise! After travelling to Thailand in 2009 and staying on Phi Phi Island, I was keen to find another tropical island within easy reach of Phuket to break up my stay. Via internet research including Google Earth and Trip Advisor, I considered Coral...

My experience from our stay at the Rayaburi resort on siam beach, is that the resort charges to much considering the level of service. The rooms are to pricy considering that the majority is next to a destroyed muddy mosquitoriver. A few rooms is close to the beach, but they lack privacy (a public beach). Some room rates are almost...

We stayed in the resort for our honeymoon. After the boat trip, we arrived the hotel. The room is spacious and clean. We spent most of our time exploring the island. The staff were very keen to help. We had a wonderful time.
