By far the best place to spend the day was at the pool at the rear of the hotel and the service was impeccable and very friendly. Our room was fantastic and all of the restaurants we tried were wonderful as well, as was the breakfast. The spa was beautiful.

This hotel is realy a good 5, •the beach and the nearby siam beach are quite spectacular, staff at the Racha are truly professional.

              • Beautiful location for chilling and very nice beach. Fabulous place for leisure and amazing paradise away from home. The staff are very friendly and the rooms and facilities are almost perfect. The breakfast is wonderful, i tried the spa for a traditional Thai massage and liked a lot, the gym equipment is more than adequate for recreational usage.

                Since the island is not very big, provides most of the activities, service like no other and food could be better.

              • The location was very nice and the infinity pool facing the beach was also very beautiful. The wine was reasonably price and decent quality, service was always friendly, the outdoor shower in the villa we stayed in was gorgeous. The food was excellent, the seafood was great and the portions were very generous, the spa treatment was disappointing again.

                At that moment swimming in the sea s not quiet, very poor English from some of the staff and too much flies in restaurant. Small gym.

              • Great view and comfort room, convenience stores to get cheap snacks drinks. This hotel is amazing, the beach is very nice especially the tide is high and staff at the Racha are truly kind and helpful. We loved the large bathroom and the outdoor shower even more, foods are good test and services was friendly, the young waiter Zone is lovely.

                The boat came and the journey wasn't too long, also the seafood restaurant was not up to the standard of the other restaurants in the place. Pool was dirty too.
