Railay Bay Resort gives you access to both West and East Railay Beach, which is great! From peaceful beach tanning sessions, to hiking & rock climbing, everything can be found on Railay Beach. You can also walk to Pranang Cave Beach while is beautiful! Food may be a bit on the pricier side as the whole place is only accessible...

Not over the moon but also not the worst. A little like a beefed up back packers in some respects. I felt there was a greater focus on charging for service over delivering service. Again could have been worse but don't think it fair to give it too much of a bravo.

Great location at the amazing Railay beach. The rooms are a bit old dated but spacious and clean. The food is ok but the service is terrible. Take long time to serve the food. The alcool (bear, wine, cocktails..) at the restaurant must be paid when ordered, it's a separate bill from the rest of the meal. It's quite annoying...

We arranged transport from the airport through the hotel, so it was easy and worth it. Be aware that there are limited options for leaving to another island from there - going to Koh Phi Phi, there was only one ferry at 9:45 am. The rooms were great, but there are limited food options. The hotel food was OK but...

We felt lucky to land a room here upon arrival. The room was nice and spacious, but the beachside pool was amazing. It was like the sunset was arranged as a private showing almost every night. More than we needed, and amazing just the same.

I've written a separate review about Railay Beach itself which remains my favourite place, probably in the entire world. And as a result I'll be back, and more importantly I knew what to expect having stayed before (although not for 10 years). Sadly as previous reviewers have stated Railay Bay Resort has become a miserable joyless place where the staff...

After visiting Railay beach I now have a better understanding of the limited options on this beautiful peninsula. The area has a captive audience because of the beautiful natural wonders surrounding this area. Because of this, most of the service we got (not all) was from people that didn't seem to care if you spent your money in their establishment...

Would recommend this hotel to anyone! Rooms are spacious and modern with all the amenities you will need, terrace area with seating outside. Hotel has 2 large pools with plenty of sunbeds around - the one on the beach front is used most so becomes busy quickly. Views are perfect from the pool and the hotel restaurant, we watched the...

I stay here with my boyfriend for 6 days. The Railay beach is so nice especially in sunny day. Seems not too crowded like Maya beach or PP island. I took lots of beautiful sunset photos during the stay. Most of the staff here are not nice. Especially women. Seems everywhere on this island. Such bad experience for me. Even...
