I feel like it is probably the best place to stay on Railay unless you have big bucks to spend at Rayavadee (fancy hotel on peninsula). The pools were very nice. Cute little spa. Our original room had plumbing and safe issues. They tried many times to fix this and ended up upgrading us since they couldn't in a timely manner. That was a huge plus for us. Would've been disappointed if we wouldn't have moved rooms, as having a reliable toilet is important. This made our stay much better. They have tons of tours you can book though the hotel, which I highly recommend as was much better priced than outside the hotel. The rooms were clean (both we stayed in). Easy access to both sides of the island. And the service from the airport to the hotel was perfect. On time. Reliable. Worth it as it takes a van, golf cart and a boat to get to our hotel!. Also really close to the "walking street". Which was nice and convenient.. Not like anything is far in Railay, though!
Lovely resort, right next to the pier 5 minutes from the beach. resort is lovely 2 pools and a really nice spa we had massages treatments we're very nice overlooking the lake. rooms are nice and spacious.
We ended our trip in Thailand with a 5 night stay here and couldn't have been happier.
We had a Sunrise Tropical Cottage right along the water on the east side of the resort (facing away from Railay). The view was great and we spent a good part of each afternoon relaxing on the balcony. We saw monkeys in the next tree over one morning.
The pool is excellent - looks just like the photos. Again, the infinity pool has a great view of the cliffs of Railay. It was absolutely spotless, despite being nestled in the trees.
I have no idea what the other reviewers are talking about regarding the staff. We found them to be incredibly helpful and warm. We had a problem with the AC one day - they were there in 5 minutes and had it fixed within 15. They even sent guys over on the longtail boat to help unload our bags (in the rain!). And then while we were waiting on the pier another staff person who was just going home helped us call our van service. Can't ask for much more.
Restaurant food was great and reasonably priced (for a hotel restaurant). Wait staff were so friendly, felt like friends by the end of our stay.
If you are looking for somewhere with immediate beach access this may not be the best bet - although the 15 minute walk to Railay East is along a well-lit and paved trail. The trade-off for this is staying in a quiet and secluded resort. Would definitely stay here again.
Amazing stay. Loved it here. Brand new and clean (apart from the little ants but that's simple - don't leave food open in your room just keep everything in the fridge its not a problem - its the same everywhere. Be really careful if walking around anywhere when its wet if you're wearing thongs or rubber soles as the new walkways are like ice skating if you're not careful. You learn to shuffle your feet - and I'm generally a fast walker - it can be that slippery. Also the new paths in some areas are uneven - with plants growing in-between at a lower level - its not the most practical pathway.
Hotel was pleasant enough, nice little pool, ok breakfast, good size villa, free wifi, good restaurant with the same slightly haphazard service we experienced throughout railay. Room service was very good. Just don't expect a super luxurious place but quality was fair given the price paid. Would go back.
Although on a peninsula, visitors reach Railay Beach only by boat, 10 minutes from Ao Nang and 30 minutes from Krabi. The West Beach, surrounded by scenic limestone cliffs and tropical jungle, beckons sunbathers with soft sand and spectacular sunsets. The fantastic limestone cliffs challenge rock climbers from around the world, while instructors lead classes for less-experienced climbers.
