We would definitely be going back to the Racha again. It appeared more difficult to get to than it actually is but we had to do a detour to The Surin as our flight got in too late to catch the hotel transfer - last boat is 5pm from Phuket. We stayed 5 nights in a Grand Deluxe Villa. The...

There are two places my husband and I absolutely love. One is Hawaii and the other is the island resort of The Racha. That's why we returned for my fourth visit. Nowhere is Asia have I found any place quite as beautiful. Nature has graced the island with powder soft white sand beaches and clear azure waters. The resort's architecture...

When we planned our trip to Thailand recently we spent many evenings checking out different hotels on and around Phuket. We were quite picky because we were traveling without kids and were looking for 5 star quality at a quite beautiful spot for real relaxation. We decided to book The Racha much for the beautiful presentation at the website. The...

We stayed at The Racha for 3 nights in early May. We arrived at the office in Chalong and were treated very well with a cool drink, lovely service and smooth check in before being transferred to the island. The speed boat ride to the island was great and not too rough as we had heard it might have been....

Stayed for 4 nights in February. Enjoyed the design of the hotel and overall smart contemporary ambience. The rooms and bathrooms are good - especially the outside showers which are great fun on holiday. The hotel is in a cove facing a lovely white sandy beach with turquoise water which was fantastically clear at this time of year. The food...

We stayed for 8 nights in early March 2011. We stayed in a grand pool villa. The resort was amazing. The attention to detail was evident from the presentation of meals, drinks, building design and lighting down to the good night gifts left in your room- such as a carved wooden elephant! It was also my birthday during our stay...

We can't thank the staff enough for making our week on the island truly one to remember forever. The food was great throughout the whole resort and was very affordable for a 5-star hotel. Add to that an idyllic location and great beach with superb bays for snorkeling and you will go far to find a better resort for a...

We loved this place. Almost has a rough go of it at first. We got a room that was a little too close to the construction of additional rooms. The noise going to be a big problem for us, but thankfully the were able to move us. The island is beautiful and we enjoyed exploring the different beaches. The water...

The Racha hotel is excellent hotel on a beautiful island, where the sea is really green and the sand is completely white. The hotel offers all the commodity needed. It has a choice of good restaurants. The rooms are large and very nice, with outdoor shower, which is wonderful and some also have their own pool. The hotel has only...
