The Racha is just amazing. We just did not want to go when we had to leave the place to go home. The only thing that was less relaxed was the very bumpy boat ride to the island, but of course, that is about the one thing the hotel cannot help. The hotel was fully booked but it still felt...

We stayed at the Racha from the 21st -24th of December last year. We stayed at one of the Kata Beach resorts for 2 nights prior to our visit and arrived at the Chalong Racha office by taxi. We were met with refreshments and told to wait for the boat. The boat came and the journey wasn't too long. However,...

The whole hotel is really focused to comfort and rest. The hotel has a big choice of restaurants, with diferent kind of foods & prices. The pool...

My husband and I stayed at the Racha for 5 nights at the end of July. If you want privacy, seclusion and total R&R - this is the place for you. If you are looking for crowds and a booming nightlife you will not find it here. Fortunately my husband and I just wanted to get away from it all...

This hotel was amazing! We opted for their cheapest room, but it was fantastic in every way. We were really impressed with the restaurants at the hotel, quite varied choices, and really reasonable. I think we spent about £20 on an average meal for two. The staff were really attentive, I had the best massage of my life in the...

We got married in the Racha and everything was perfect except maybe the previous day briefing which was a bit tense... Whatever, a lot of little attentions have been made in order to make this evenement the best ever. In addition to, the spot is wonderful, the architecture of the hotel (all white) can be a little cold but it...

We stayed here for our honeymoon. We had book 5 nights and ended up staying for another 5 as it was so incredible. The website shows some pretty amazing photos and it looks even better than this in reality. It is so peaceful due to it being off season. There are no tour boats in the off peak time. There...
