Takeaway: if you keep your expectations low, your stay at Rayaburi might just be incredible fun - a huge plus on your trip to Thailand; however, most people's expectations are too high for this place - and this is due to the high price the hotel charges and they come and are disappointed. I give the hotel THREE STARS to... More

The food however is very good. It was a pleasant stay as we had the beach and the pool almost for our self all day. Where upgraded to... More

I have to say that I am a Mother of a almost 3yo very active boy.. And his safety is very important to me. Also, usually we stay at 5star hotels so a pinch of salt is required when you read my review. That being said, I would never stay at this resort again with children. We got a big... More

I have mixed feelings about this place, and looking at other reviews, I see that many other people do too. My problems actually started with the booking itself. As you know, to get to the hotel you need to pay for speedboat transfer (THB 1200 pp) on checkin. I had a choice of booking with an agency like AGODA or... More

The architecture of the hotel is beautiful and the beach is great. But, the room was so old (the bath was unusable because it leaked) and the minibar dirty. The pool was beautiful but too much chlorine in it. The pool's shower was green because never cleaned. There is no services in this hotel. The pool's bar was closed and... More

We discovered the beautiful Racha island 10 years ago and we stayed 3-4 years ago at this hotel. It was a brand new one with friendly but non-professional staff.

The hotel had very friendly staff and a beautiful beach with few people. The restaurant was good. Breakfast was not the best I've had but quite ok. The store is expensive but I've seen higher prices elsewhere as well. The rooms were ok and the pool as well. Renovation is needed of some stuff. For instance, the bathtub had a... More
