I loved this beach house, but I would caution that it is not for everyone. Also, it is not a great value compared to many other places in Thailand. I loved it for the beautiful, open-air room and romantic seclusion of the property. Others may not as ready to sleep in the heat under a mosquito net (and don't try sleeping without it!) and live with limited amenities. The Beach Club seems a bit in contrast to the rest of the island, which mostly caters to the backpacker and rock climber set. As you see new arrivals coming in the beach off the long tails, almost all a double-packed. Still, this was a great fit for me, since it meant that I got to stay in a wonderful beach house and still find plenty of cheap places for food and drinks!
At night, grab a beach chair and bottle wine and just wait on the beach for one of the more amazing sunsets you will ever see. For a bit more of an adventure, find the roped passage way through the beach rocks (watch the tides and bring your head lamp for the way home) and have drinks at the hammocked and throw-rugged rasta bar across the way.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Railei Beach Club is a community of privately owned homes which may be rented when the owners are not in residence. Each house shares traditional Thai design elements but has its own characteristics. Our homes are completely open to the surrounding natural elements and all rooms have fans. Each house has a kitchen with either a refrigerator or ice-cooler, open deck space, gardens, and beautiful views. There are two rooms available to rent in the Club House area and 21 houses, ranging from one to four bedrooms, sleeping two to eight people. Some houses have private guest wings, without cooking facilities, which are also available to rent. All of the houses have open-air fan rooms, and only 4 properties have air-con in the bedrooms. There is a strict maximum occupancy of eight people per house, and a requested three night minimum stay. During the Peak Season (December and January) we request a 7-night minimum stay. Year round, we enforce a quiet time after 11pm. We ask our guests to respectfully observe this request by no loud music or voices after this time.
