The hotel is absolutely terrible...in every way. The room is super bright and impossible to get a good night sleep. They can't hide their internal operations, you're a constantly passing through workers, constriction, back side of the kitchen and garbage. They have construction materials, cleaning equipment, all sorts of junk strewn throughout the property. The only way to get to... More

When arriving at the island via railay east there is a short walk to the resort, however this was made longer due to hotel maintenence on the normal path so we had to walk out to the beach and back into the resort with our heavy backpacks. The signposting for this was also very poor. Upon arriving we were checked... More

We stayed for over a week with 3 rooms and had a pleasant stay although some features are not those of a 4* hotel. We booked the roundtrip transfer from the airport and the van and tail boat rides were very nice. We left at 5am and they had prepared us a take away breakfast which was very much appreciated....

Having the misfortune of having very bad weather for most of my stay, having my cat die during my stay, and me and both friends I stayed with having had very bad food poisoning which required calling a doctor. Hence, it wasn't a great stay. Despite this, the resort offered what was needed, and had a good and fun transfer... More

The location is excellent, but "Deluxe Cottage with Garden View" is very far from the beach. It could be a good and beautiful resort, but is not well maintained. Gardens and beach front pool are beautiful. I recommend the Deluxe Rooms: are nice (just ok), close to the beach and good value for money. Breakfast: good and enough variety. ​Some... More

The hotels surroundings are beautiful, indescribable, the Bungalow was a bit run down but nevertheless nice enough, I wasn't there for the room. Stay on the west side as it has the best views and make the most of the beach pool, you'll miss it when you're gone.

My husband and I arrived at this resort at sundown, after many long delayed flights from South Africa. We had booked our transfer from Krabi Airport with the hotel directly which was superb & they responded quickly to when they heard about our delays. The Resort is THE best one in Railay. We walked to all resorts, & this one... More

Perfect location, good value, great clean room, good selection for breakfast and nice staff. We stayed in Railay Deluxe(accomodation choice) and tought was so much nicer and cheaper than Deluxe Cottage that our friends booked. Very enjoyable and looking further to stay here again in future! Thank you!

This resort was everything we hoped for plus more! The Staff was incredibly friendly, helpful and courteous! They allowed us to check in early, (really early!) We stayed in the Railay Suite Cottage which was perfect. It was its own private building (in a group of other private building) The bed was comfortable, room clean, and the A/C worked great!...

If you stay here do NOT eat the food, go to the hotel next door or the Flaming Tree on Walking Street. We got horrendous food poisoning. Both bacteria and parasite food poisoning and we have been sick for 2 weeks after. The scenery, the view of the beach and the pool are great but everything else bad. It is... More
