What a treat staying here and a deal at around $80/night! If staying on Railay and want to be a little bit far away from the commotion but still have access, this is the perfect place! The pool has a gorgeous view of that famous Thai Coastline with beautiful limestone cliffs in the background. There is a path that leads...

The location is private and offers incredible views over the bay and magnificent cliffs. The room had a large bath with a prefect view and the beds are comfortable and clean.

the rooms are fantastic. good bed, clean and great open space We booked the room when we knew we risked rain because you can be on the patios covered even in the rain which was just perfect! The infinity pool has a wonderful view as well. The hotel offers a boat into the main port but it's absolutely not needed...

Let me just issue a warning to those of you who have not booked your hotel yet. If you suffer from knee problems, sea sickness or vertigo, this hotel isn't for you! Moreover, they ask for a 1000 THB deposit up front (returnable). This hotel is ONLY accessible by long tail boat. These wooden boats typically carry 8-10 passengers and...
