This is a beautiful resort on the farthest edge of East Railay, nestled in the jungle and hillside. Due to it's location the property has some quirks (uneven or level walkways, lots and lots of stairs), but also due to the location you truly feel like you are in a little jungle oasis with stunning surroundings and monkeys swinging through the trees and spending time by the pool. We stayed in a Grand Deluxe Partial Sea View room and it was lovely. The room was spacious, had really lovely Thai style and decor, a fabulous bathroom and a really large balcony with a great view. Again, the room had some quirks, the bathroom ceiling leaked during heavy rain storms, and there were some holes in the mosquito net, but we didn't find any of these things to be a major problem, and found the room to be really comfortable. The infinity pool at the property is stunning, again with great views of East Railay (they really aren't kidding with the name of the resort). The best part of the pool was being able to watch the local monkeys swing by and stop to just hang out in all of the trees that surround the pool area. The Staff at Great View Resort were super friendly and always extremely helpful. Whenever we needed anything or had any issues in the room, the staff would immediately respond and resolve the issue. The resort has a long tail boat that does regular trips between the pier at Ao Nang and the resort to pick up and drop off guests which was helpful for check in/out. The property is the very last accommodation in East Railay, so it is a little bit of a walk along a well lit pathway to get to the restaurants and shops of Railay. That being said, to get all the way to the main beach in Railay West only took probably 15-20 minutes, and there were tons of food and drink options along the walk. We would highly recommend The Heart Restaurant in East Railay for fresh BBQ seafood and Thai food. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Great View Resort and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to avoid some of the Railay crowds and have a more natural and beautiful resort stay.

What a fantastic place that is unbeatable if you value the natural world. Your accommodation is in the tree tops with fantastic views out to sea. The infinity pool is so special being able to swim whilst looking out into the Anderman Sea. The staff cannot do enough for you. The private beach is also another bonus. This is our 4th time of being here and having read some of the recent reviews I was a bit nervous of returning. In my opinion this is still as good as it gets and some people who write poor reviews obviously don’t value the place, have not done their homework, as it is in the jungle, and has steep winding paths to get around. These people should consider where they holiday and would probably be better going to Benidorm. Do not let the poor reviews stop you coming here if you truly want to experience the best Thailand has to offer.

Well, this has been a bone of contention and really was horrific We booked for 8 nights. After the first night we told them we would be leaving. We landed at Krabi airport, longing to jumped in a taxi to the hotel. We got told by the taxi service in the airport we had to get a taxi to the boat as it was on an island. It's not an island we found out. But it is unreachable other than by boat. A local boat not a ferry. For someone that is disabled, trust me that was a nightmare. We arrived at an old concrete landing point, and I somehow had to get out of the boat. I'd been involved in a boating accident back in 2017 so the whole thing terrified me. Then we had to walk along this dangerous path, then start climbing up to reception. I can't describe the pain I was in by then. Well got given our room details and a map! Yep, a map to the beaches which my husband never found. Our walk to the cabin was horrific. Up and down. On bodged dangerous paths. Our cabin was located on a pile of bricks. You had to climb stairs with a tread of approximately 6 inches wide. No handrails at all. I went to put my hand on the wall and a bit of wood fell off. I had to climb up on my hands and knees. On entering the bathroom floor wasn't coveted in leaves and dirt due to the perspex ceilings being damaged. To get to the restaurant that night, it wasn't another nightmare. Up and down. After returning to the cabin, once you left the path there we no lights. Thank goodness we had our phones with torches. Climbing up those stairs in the dark would be really dangerous. It was that night we found out that the aircon was useless. More dirt and tree parts fell through the bathroom ceiling when it rained. Goodnestone knows how many insects climbed through the gap in between the balcony glass door as they didn't meet. Or even run on tracks. And the mosquito net had a hole in it. Next morning we had to take the same up and down path again. We reported the aircon. The balcony doors the girl at reception already had on her phone! Eventually around 4pm two men came out to look at the aircon. By that time I'd gone on Google to find out how to reset it. But it still wasn't working properly. With no sleep, and walking on dangerous paths etc, I was really annoyed, tired, in pain. So we went to tell them we'd be leaving. A man behind the counter told me to be quiet when I described the health and safety failings. And how dangerous it actually was. My husband after 40 mins of walking never found the beach. He said I could never have got there. More up and down dangerous track. The next morning they offered us another room. What they didn't understand was it wasn't just the room. It was so dangerous. A member of staff took a photo of all of the insect bites my hubby had on his legs. Still don't know why. We asked to be put on the shuttle boat back to Krabi town. Instead they put us on a boat used for the food and linen trips. I has a huge panic attack getting on the boat. Physically and mentally it was just all to much. Two people had to nigh on carry me on. If I'd taken the wheelchair, I would never have got 10ft. The owners of the hotel lied through their teeth about everything. Apparently the offer of another cabin would have made it OK. Just as we were checking out we bumped into a couple that were looking for the beach path. They'd booked, but the resort was over booked. And this poor couple complete with luggage had been told to walk the beach path to another resort. On their own. We arrived on land, hadn't to find ourselves transport to a hotel we had booked the night before. Yet the staff told Agoda that they hadn't organised transport to our next hotel. They had no idea where we were going. It could have been on a flight out of there. We had actually booked the pineapple hotel in Krabi old town. I've got so many photos of that resort. If you are disabled don't go. If you have young children don't go. And when they say shuttle, they mean a 'long boat'. Which actually go on all night!

Nice place, cute bungalows (although they leak badly in the rain!) and all ok for the price , very lacking staff attention, no help from reception or advice, no massage/ extras which were all lauded on the website, average to poor breakfast. All would have been accepted if it weren’t for the starting and ending shots! When we arrived the guy who checked us in showed us to our cabin then told me to give him money….. stood there bold as brass and demanded it. I didn’t give it as I won’t be bullied, he didn’t even help with the bags!! Then as we tried to leave we were informed we had broken the umbrellas we hadn’t even used and they demanded 500 and tried to stop us leaving. It quickly got reduced to 100 but it is the principle. A scam and sadly leaves a bad taste in my mouth so beware! What a shame, they need customers and there are plenty of other places to stay in Railay!

This was the worst experience of my entire life, I spent the first night in this bungalow without sleeping, the roof was broken and it was banging all the time making really bad sounds, at one point me and my friend started to hear sounds inside the room, something or someone scratching inside the wall. A horror movie. We started to scream and we get so scared, we tried to use the phone of the room to call the reception. The phone wasn’t working at all. We panicked at one point, no one couldn’t help, at the end we find a number to call on the cell phone paying it, and this man of the hotel( not speaking English at all- like no one there does at all) after hours of terror came to the room and we tried to explain the situation. He said just one word “ rats”. A trauma that will stay forever. No one even helped us the next day, no one speaks English. The only thing is just ran away and never come back. Such a doggy place, didn’t even let me speak with the manager making excuses!

While the environment is great, with beautiful cottages on stilts, and big windows that lets the jungle into the room. The staff ruined our stay with their nonchalant and negative attitude. We got the feeling that they rather not have any guests. They arranged a day trip for our family informing us that there would be food, but there were none which is quite a big deal with small children and when we told them they refused to accept any responsibility.

I actually visited in December 2019, but I didn’t had a TripAdvisor account back then, so I would like to review this great hotel now. It was a very good hotel, the hotel had a private beach, kind staff and it had a great view. I had an excellent stay. The rooms were clean. I would recommend people to visit Phra Nang beach, it’s not that busy out there and it was a very beautiful beach.

Such a lovely place in the quiet area of Railay. I absolutely enjoyed the views. Except, I had a really bad experience during my stay as this place seems to be friendly only to foreigners, not for Thai. I have been treated poorly with double standard by staffs. Such as, in the hotel restaurant, I was asking the staff if I could transfer money or pay later when I check in. She gets really annoyed and raised up her tone answering my question and treating me poorly. In the same time, she seems to be very friendly and polite to foreigners which was totally different from me. Also, since I have got off from the hotel boat, all the staffs handed every foreigners languages and ignored mine until I have to ask them for help. All have been good here except a double standard between foreigner and Thai.

We stayed in the hotel for about a week and had a lovely time. The hotel is on the quiet end of Railay East, which comes with some privacy and amazing views; still, the main beaches are easily accesible by walking 15-20 mins through a paved trek. The staff is friendly and the rooms are nice, spacious and with a great view. We would totally come back!
