This was our second visit to The Racha. We came as a couple in May last year and enjoyed the property so much that this year we returned with our parents, teenage sisters and our two young children aged 2+ and 3 months. If our first visit was lovely, then second time's a charm! Rooms: Beautiful. I usually don't fancy...

After being in Bangkok with my husband for a few days, was excellent to get to this beautiful little island to relax. Once we arrived in Phuket we were greeted by a limousine that led us to the waiting room reserved for the Hotel, while waiting to be taken to the port to take the boat to the island. Gerard...

Stayed here on a trip to Phuket and nearby islands due to the amazing reviews on Trip Advisor. The resort is nice, but not fantastic, and could probably use some sprucing up. However, my low review is based primarily on the poor value for money. I stayed at three other resorts (two in Phuket and one on Phi Phi) on...

The moment you arrive at the check in (near the jetty), you know you are in for a wonderful experience. As is usual for Thailand you are greeted with a warm smile, cold towel and refreshing drink. There is free internet, nibbles and drinks available and you get to choose what sort of "scent" you would like to have in...

Wow, absolutely amazing. We had our wedding at The Racha in the middle of December, and they really went out of their way to make our day perfect.

We stumbled upon The Racha via TripAdvisor and SOOOO glad we did. So we added two nights to our trip at the end and The Racha was definitely the grand finale! In May, the hotel's beach is good for boogie boarding and simply beautiful for sunsets. We are well traveled and agreed it was the most beautiful beach we have...
