The hotel room was exactly as pictured. The room had a king sized bed and had a view of the second pool that’s in the interior of the property. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were not great. From the balcony we could see monkeys in the trees. The hotel provides umbrella

I loved the island getaway feel to this location. There were many delicious restaurants in the area, although the hotel restaurant food was overpriced for Thailand standards, their breakfast buffet was 5 star!! Omelets' made to order, meats, potatoes, cereals, yogurt, and many fr

Good hotel, clean plenty of hot water, weak wifi, located right on the beach. The spa on site offers reasonable priced massages. Room good size. Bed comfy. The front desk is able to arrange transfers on and off the island. Some cottages, houses are closer to the pool and beach.

We stayed two weeks here which was probably a bit long in Railay for us. The hotel was nice, great location in the middle of the beach. The rooms were nice and spacious (grand delux) although they have some sort of drainage issue that needs sorting! We had to change rooms twice b

Is it possible to walk to Ao Phra Nang beach from the hotel and how long does it take?
You cannot get there directly along the beach. You need to return to the other side of Railay where the Pier is and walk from there. It takes about 10 - 15 minute and is quite a pleasant walk. If you are lucky you will see lizards and maybe monkeys on the walk.

Can we walk around to the nearest town to see markets and cooking classes?
There isn't really a town as such but you can get a long tail boat round to Ao Nang. Walking street has a cookery school where you get to eat what you cook after which is highly recommended!

Can we walk from the resort into a "town" to shop, sight see and take a cooking class? Or do we have to pay for a boat to go everywhere?
Yes The location is very good. Easy walk to the beach, shopping, tours, bars and night life and no noise at the Panan itself.

Hi there, I will be staying at the Sand Sea and am wondering if the rooms have safes. If not, does one leave valuables with the front desk and how secure does the property feel in regards to theft?
Rooms do have safes yes. Property felt safe but front of house staff not so friendly. Housekeeping staff really friendly. Complimentary snacks and bottled water placed in your room daily

"Bungalow's are closer to the more intimate pool. The fancier bungalow's are farther to walk to the beach."
"Building rooms are better"
"Deluxe bungalows are a lot nicer than standard"
"Grand deluxe room are a more mordern and huge room. Extra privacy if on the upper level as the balcony does not face any other room"
"The grand deluxe room first floor better closer to pool are better"
$138 - $854 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
