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.”

After The Racha living feeling

First of all, the hotel's environment and the service is positive, is very beautiful and comfortable. Emperor island is really a good place for a holiday, thank you for your service, hope that if you get a chance to play again and hotel. Also really a little bit of your hotel a little advice, whether can arrange a meeting of the Chinese service? Especially in restaurants, if not equipped with Chinese service, whether can have Chinese menu translation, or match a picture also is very good, so for those of us who couldn't speak English is too good, can want to know what holiday is also important to eat good oh. The final zhu GUI hotel even better The business is thriving ~
