    Great service

    It was perfect and nice. The only thing to comment is the turist comming in with boats every day to see the island on the beach and They where very loud, even made the beach dirty. That was not relaxing. But the resort was amazing and great service.

    Perfect Asian getaway

    I am reluctant to give a good rating as I want to keep the Racha to ourselves! Wonderful place. Complete revitalisation. Really friendly and helpful staff. Lovely food and spa. Perfect for our wedding anniversary.

    the hotel provides good services given it is located in an isolated island. the beach adjacent to the hotel is very swimmer friendly, pristine sands, turquoise sea water and the staff are very friendly and helpful. it is a wonderful time though the restuarant selection is a bit limit and the complex itslf is a little dated. if you enjoy the beach the downsides can easily outweighed by the awesome beach.

    For a Tranquil Getaway

    Its an amazing location. White sand beaches and crystal clear water. It does get crowded with public between 11:30 AM and 4 PM. But other times its very private. You can snorkel & dive right on the island coast.

    One of the best resort I have stayed in the region! The beach is picturesque and accessible from the resort. The resort have private benches only for hotel guest which is excellent. Staff are all helpful and polite as expected from a 5 stars resort and they never disappoint. I will highly recommend The Racha resort for couples looking for a nice and quiet getaway! Just take note and do your research of the right season to go before booking. Thumbs up for all the staff that I encountered during my stay!

    A little gem

    Amazing location and a nice change after coming to phuket and her surrounding islands for more than 12 years. We had one small issue with our room which was fixed - although with a little difficulty initially. It was rainy season so getting around the island was not easy due to large mud puddles and my fear of monitor lizards...... but they had ATVs nearby which was a great way to look around. There were a couple of minimarts on the island (no atm that I noticed) and a few additional restaurants of you like basic street food. The hotel food was great - we stayed 5 days so by the 5th day the menu was a bit predictable - not a complaint - just something to be mindful of. The only downside was that ithe resort and surrounding beaches (day trippers) seemed to be a resort only for Chinese?? And I felt not so much a tourist in Thailand but rather a foreigner in China. Other than the boards of daytrippers swimming in life jackets - the beaches were stunning
