The place is amazing, mid-range to expensive (depending on time of reservation) but really good value for money. Ideal for couples and families mostly; for young people, the Railay east bars are more suitable. Great sand, great pool, very polite staff, amazing view. Easy access to boat trips (Koh Phi Phi and 4 Islands tours recomended to give you a... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in November 2016. The reviews I read before this were mixed experiences, which is what we had. The location was great for us as we attended a wedding next door at Rayavadee and the beach offered stunning views throughout the day/night. The rooms were on par in comparison to pricing and we had good experiences... More

Railay beach has stolen a piece of my heart. We packed out bags with heavy hearts as we left the resort this morning. It really does offer absolutely everything, picturesque views, daily outdoor activities, epic sunsets, delicious street food, magical snorkeling and friendly Thai faces :) Check in process was easy & the staff were very helpful in taking us...

Very good to be there. I was in a honeymoon and I requested something special (Like flower in the bed, or whatever) but nothing was done. I expected to fell special but it did not happen. It's a good hotel, nice people, good food, comfortable privacity cottage room, etc, good hotel!

If you book this hotel, you will have to take a shuttle from the airport to Ao Nammao Pier, and a longtail boat to the hotel. Don't take the shuttle to Ao Nang beach! If you do, you'll be walking into knee high water with a suitcase above your head. Pros: The location is stunning. It was one of the... More

We had a great stay at Railay Bay Resort and Spa. Arguably one of the best locations on Railay Beach, you walk out of your room and are basically on the beach. It's unbeatable. The included breakfast was a big bonus, the rooms were clean and the staff friendly. We ended up just lounging by the pool and beach the... More

Room was lovely, however the air conditioning was a little noisy. The breakfast which was included with our room was fantastic. What made our stay even better were the staff who were extremely friendly and helpful. We were gutted our stay was so short. We wish we had stayed a few more nights.

The property has everything an island resort should have and in abundance - sun, sea,sand and good food. The views are so amazing and the island in itself is a bliss !! However , the service needs to be improved a lot. The service is very slow and constant reminders are required for everything.

It´s a very good resort and the bedrooms are huge and absolutely amazing. The staff is very nice but unfortunately the wi-fi connection is too weak and the bedrooms do not aerate enough so the mold smell make it impossible to sleep. I had to come out to breath properly several times during the night.
