Romantic hotel on a small tropical island south of Phuket.

This is a luxurious eco-friendly resort, placed on one of the world’s most stunning destinations – just 12 nautical miles south of Phuket on the tiny island of Racha Yai.

Life’s simple pleasures are important here, where serenity and harmony are all around you. There are only 85 low rise, white washed villas, dotted across the expansive grounds – making this an ultimate get-away-from-it-all escape. The look is simple with clean lines, hints of dark wood and rattan furnishings, fragrant frangipani trees, pretty patios and large comfy day beds .

Although this is primarily a couples retreat, children are welcome, and will love the powdery white beach and crystal clear sea. Older children can be happily entertained by the various creative classes and excursions run by the hotel.

Many guests come to The Racha for the diving. It’s a beautiful place to learn to dive, and has many interesting and fun dive locations for the more experienced.

The Racha’s Anumba Spa has been voted the Top Island Resort Spa in Asia 2017 at The World Luxury Spa Awards.   “Expert caring therapists restore and rejuvenate mind, body and spirit with signature natural treatments and oils. VIP couples’ suites, steam rooms and rain showers are just part of the pampering. Within the lush spa grounds, an ocean-facing balance-fitness gym and OM yoga studio offers guided holistic movement classes.”

The Racha lighthouse 4d3n stay! Amazing!

The lighthouse was a luxurious stay! There were really good sound system and movie selections. The seaview and sunset was stunning. The staff service was great. Special shoutout to Samrui, the guide who brought us out for a private 2 hours snorkeling trip. He took good care of all of our safety out in the sea especially when I was a non-swimmer. A-star service for his service and attentiveness. Really grateful for that! The atv was fun too! Definitely recommended if you want a short getaway with clean and beautiful villa and stunning beach scenery. There is also 1 for 1 happy hour for alcohol with free snacks served. Thank you for the stay. :)

Wonderful stay, beautiful resort, lovely staff and fantastic service

Visited The Racha in May 2018 - can’t say anything bad about the place. This was our second time visiting and both our visits did not disappoint. Rooms are clean and high quality bedding, service is excellent and place is beautiful. Great place to rest recharge and regenerate. Prices are also very reasonable for the quality of the service and the experience. True luxury! Would recommend it to friends and family for sure
