This hotel is WORTH the price!!! The staff treated us like absolute royalty.. The grounds are STUNNING, the beach is beautiful! I planned a private beach dinner for my partners birthday and it was so romantic and the staff accommodated us on short notice..

Hi, Its a lovely property much away from madness and hustle bustle of Phuket. Fabulous beach with soft white sand. Ideal for couples.

The Racha is beyond what overall Phuket Thailand offers.. It's 30 mins away by speed boat yet so so pure and crystal blue! The luxury resort lives up to its standard though.

Racha is an amazing and beautiful place, and the staff go out of their way to make life easy for you. This is not an activity-holiday location, and the older bungalows are starting to feel a little dated; but as a place to get away from it all and chill, it is bliss.

This place is a real gem. We were kindly upgraded on our arrival, as the hotel was not full, to one of the 3 bungalows closest to the beach and reception.
