My family (husband and kids 14 & 11 yrs) have recently spend 10 nights at The Racha.
I was nervous being early July and the wet season, however after a full-on monsoon storm on the day of our arrival we had mostly really lovely weather. Not too hot and some rain showers in the evening. Having said that, The Racha is so beautifully designed and operated that no matter what the weather, there is always something to do and somewhere to go. We loved all that they had to offer but also felt at total ease just relaxing by the pool or having massages in the spa. The rooms are perfect, chic clean lines (and your favourite scent throughout), grounds are immaculate, soft spongy grass. Most important to us is we are really fussy about food and usually chose our holiday destinations based on the food. The Racha was excellent, I don't think we had a bad meal, there was always variety in dining, we loved having different restaurant choices each evening as it made dining such a treat. Food is fresh and not expensive. Overall, the kids had a great time and we fell deeply in love with the blue fizzy water and icing sugar sand. This small island paradise should be on your list of beautiful tropical getaways.
