Railay Bay Resort and Spa

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I was an unbelievable experience; the views were spectacular, the food delicious, the beach water was crystal clear, and it was like being on an island away from the rest of the world.

This hotel is on the West side of the beach which I preferred. The West side is quieter, the beach is sandier and cleaner, and the sun sets are beautiful. The hotel restaurant is OK but I would recommend walking over to the East beach for a less expensive meal. The spa is over priced and the massage I got was not great. Again, head over to the East side of the Island for a more affordable and better massage. My room was amazing. I had a private villa which was very quiet and a fenced in private out door area with an outdoor shower. It felt very safe and the room even came with a flashlight to walk around with at night as well as beach bag and mat. Mostly couples and families at this resort. Quiet in the evenings but overall very nice and comfortable. Completely comparable to the other resorts in the area.

We got a good low season deal and spent 5 nights here in June. The pool location in proximity to the beach is probably the best in Railay, and we spent a lot of time going back and forth between the pool and beach. Railay, being somewhat isolated from Krabi and Ao Nang, is a little more expensive, but we were happy with the value, all things considered. Generally, the guests were couples and families.

Railay Bay in general is a strange place because everyone who works on the beach seems to have decided to be as unfriendly and unhelpful as possible. This hotel is no exception to this rule We opted for the privacy villa after reading negative reviews of the room qualities. The room itself was nice while the bathroom could use some updating. We actually used the outdoor shower in our villa because the main shower was so unappealing. While beds in all hotels in Thailand are hard, the beds here are just a smidge better than sleeping on the floor. The breakfast was subpar but this is to be expected because good food does not exist in all of Railay Bay (except at Rayavadee which is pricey.)

This is a beautiful, somewhat remote area of Thailand. We had just come from the hectic pace of Bangkok, so it was wonderful to just relax for a few days. The Railay Bay Resort and Spa is a nice place, although it could use some renovation. The breakfast was plentiful. Service at the restaurant is in need of someone to coordinate things. We were with some friends and our meals were often confused or served out of order (appetizers with the meal or someone getting their main course 15 minutes before the rest of us!). The staff was friendly and gracious. I would go there again.
