My partner and I held our wedding at The Racha in June 2009. The hotel took care of everything for us - from a beautiful 5 tier cake in our colour theme, to importing exotic flowers for the hand bouquets, to helping us hire a good videographer from Phuket. The General Manager of the resort, Mr Gerard Tan, was as...

I've just returned from a 5 nights stay at The Racha and is absolutely in love with that place! As it is a low season now, the place is really peaceful and tranquil without any hustle or bustle....the only time you get to see the other guests is probably during meal times or at the pool..... The sea is amazing...

The Racha is a great place! The beach has nice white sand(the best we have experienced in Thailand so far),and the water was so clear. We had only two days at the Racha,but should have stayed longer instead of dividing our days between The Racha and anther resort on Phuket.

We did a trip in the far east for our honeymoon, ending it with 3 nights at The Racha Resort, and it was simply the perfect ending to a perfect honeymoon!

Firstly I’d like to tell you I have never written a trip advisor review before even though we have stayed in many top class resorts all over the world, the reason being that lots of places are excellent and as I would expect for the money, but The Racha is different and therefore I feel I need to share my...
