It really was such a pleasure to be back at Racha Resort. We had the junior pool suite which was simply an amazing experience. Als always staff is very friendly and takes care about everything. Food is great and you have a choice of several restaurants... Since we had some rainy days, we checked out the spa, which was really...

We were at The Racha in November and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The transfer from Phuket was seamless, the waiting room at the pier was perfect for after a long flight - aircon, nice bathroom and fresh juice. There was a bit of waiting around as there at set times for departure. The boat trip over was quick and easy...

Visited the Racha during the last week of December 2016 on our Honeymoon and the experience was just fantastic. The resort in itself is extremely beautiful and well maintained, while the service is top-notch. Perfect escape, just can't wait to come back again. There is a lot to do, from simply relaxing by one of the pools / the beach...

We stayed in the Racha for 8 nights from 2nd January 2016 and travelled as a family with two children aged 12 and 9. The transfer via speedboat from Phuket was wonderful, if a little choppy. For those who suffer from sea sickness, it's worth taking a tablet before embarking. One poor lady in our group felt very nauseous for...

Eco-Chic. The beach is perfect! The water is crystal clear and bright turquoise. The staff keep the beach spotlessly clean and take care of the marine life. If the beach was a little busy due to day trippers visiting the island we would retreat to the adults-only resort-exclusive infinity pool. The Sunset Cafe/Restaurant is fabulous, we went there every night...
