The location is great with wonderful views and it's easy to walk around the island to the other bays. It's well worth staying for a night or two just be aware that between about 12.30 and 2.30pm the resort is flooded with day trippers, mostly Chinese, about 90 per day. As long as you go and have your lunch elsewhere on the island that won't be a problem.
The staff are not at all friendly at Ban Raya. They are mostly Burmese teenagers and seemed pretty sullen. A few Thai smiles would've been nice. We booked a superior room and a standard room but on check in they told us that there were no longer any standard rooms so were given two superiors. The restaurant was hit and miss. Everywhere on the island you pay island prices 50-100% more than on Phuket. The over all impression with Ban Raya is that it's nice but could be so much better.
