From the moment you spot your limo driver holding a board with you name amongst the crowds at the airport, you know your in for a special time. As your your calmly driven through the chaos of Phuket's traffic in the blistering heat sipping a cold drink with... More

Wow. What an amazing property on a hidden gem of an island. The island itself is just beautiful. The sand is white, and the water is every shade of perfect blue you can imagine. The property itself (grounds and hotel villas) are just fantastic and immaculate. We were upgraded during our stay because it was my birthday, and I truly... More

The idyllic setting and fantastic staff made this and instant favorite of mine. The white sand beach is really special. The water is amazingly clear and inviting. All the staff were wonderful - I wish I could remember all their names. Khun Gib and Khun Nita were very helpful upon my arrival and during my stay. Laura at the front... More

Great place to relax and unwind with crystal clear blue waters, natural 24 hrs breeze, very good and helpful staff. It was my first time staying in a hotel/resort where I could control the mood of the room just by adjusting the lighting modes.

The Racha is truly a gem in Phuket waiting for you to discover. Being escorted all the way from the airport arrival, private car to Chalong Bay then private Racha yacht to the island was a luxurious experience by itself.

My girlfriend and I stayed at The Racha for a few nights in November 2015. We had already planned to stay in Phuket and Koh Phi Phi, but felt that we had enough time for a third island but didn't know where to go. After lots of researching we decided on a small and relatively unknown island near Phuket called... More
