My wife and I stayed here between 11th Nov and 16th Nov 2016. Having got a longtail boat to Railay East Beach from Ao Nam Mao Pier just off the taxi from Krabi Airport this was our first taste of Thailand. A short 10-15 min ride got us to the long pontoon pier and once we got our bearings realised... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the superior air conditioning bungalow. Getting to the hotel involved a long tail boat transfer from Ao Nang pier to Railay beach as Railay itself is not accessible by land. Be prepared to get your legs wet when you board and jump off the long tail boat. The hotel itself is gorgeous and in... More

The resort is beautiful, the room was clean, breakfast was tasty, BUT the front desk staff was terrible. Here's the story... My husband and I arrived around 11:30 after flying in to Phuket, taking a taxi and then a long boat. The reception area was pretty busy when we arrived. We booked our superior bungalow months ago and got a... More

The beach and view are undeniable beautiful and fabulous. You stay here for it's location not for the features of the hotel. Staff are not here to help or improve your stay. This place has such a high turnover that they don't really care about making each and every customer happy. It is super busy as soon as highs season... More

Right on the West Railay coast, it is the perfect location with the beautiful beach right on your doorstep and good restaurants and bars not too faraway. However the resort itself could be better. The rooms were nice enough - one of the issues to iron out are the staff who were not as warm and friendly as we are... More

Located directly at the beach (opposite of boats arrival), it´s a big hotel with many rooms. The room quality is quite good, although you should book for the new rooms. Great space and nice bathroom with a cosy balcony. The only thing I missed on breakfast were fresh juice, but the rest is quite satisfying. The pool area definitely needs... More

First thing ... book your round trip shuttle to and from airport with the hotel ! They were reliable, on time and safe. It was so much fun... van, tuk tuk , long tail boat, golf cart to the hotel and same with return trip. Highly recommended!! Room was beautiful. Centrally located. Pool good. Thai massages awesome and inexpensive!

We stayed for just 2 nights and were sad to say goodbye! After debating whether to stay on the East or West side of Railay, the East being FAR more expensive (which you would assume therefore nicer!), we chose the West and feel we chose right! First of all Railay is so small that the difference between East and West... More
