We last visited 16 years ago, and thank goodness Bungalow Raya has been preserved, unfortunately there is the huge, upmarket "racha" hotel taking up the rest of the beach. Bungalow Raya has great views - we had two, very clean bungalows for our family (No.6 and 7) which overlooked the bay. The beach is white sand, clear blue water, snorkelling...

This location is located in the nicest beach, you can just walk to the beach in from of The racha hotel, this located in Pratok Bay in high season, the main pier will move to this side, and there will be busy because of one day trip tourists, if you stay nights you may have choice to go the beach...

I get that this is a fairly remote island, and everything costs a bit more to be brought there. But you can't help but feel ripped off for anything here, from food and drink to holiday activities. Partly the prices, but also just a general grumpy, don't-care-about customers attitude all over the island, which ultimately just managed to spoil each...

The island is beautiful, the sea is crystal clear, it's gorgeous! The bungalows are basic, but except for a little gecko in the bathroom on arrival, (and a huge grasshopper that my husband let in one evening) we had no critters inside our bungalow. The cicadas did bother us a little in the evenings flapping 'round the light fitting outside,...

The island is amazing, the resort is ok but the bungalow was terrible. There were holes everywhere, in the toilet i found many ants and one morning also a big gecko! We could sleep only because there was the bed mosquito net and that we put all around the bed closing every possible hole. Anyway for the same price i...

This is a great place if your looking for a typical sea view bungalow. The hotel has two types, I would suggest the sea view one's with air-con, as they only cost few pounds extra. breakfast is good and served right by the water. Service is minimal and friendly, the beach is just amazing. during the afternoon, they make really...

where to start.. this place is a real secret gem and has the best view and location on Racha island. You will wake up with the sounds of the waves surrounded by nature. It is absolutely priceless the view and you will feel reborn after one day. Rooms are very basic and mattress is very hard. some have air con...

Stayed for two nights beginning of Nov, loved the place. There's a choice of bungalows, some more some less modern. Take your time to pick the one whose combination of view, "rusticness" and quietness suits you best, most were empty when I was there. People nice. Liked the food too (stir fried veggies and Thai Omelette were my favourites). Why...

Kho Raya is a beatiful destination if you want to escape the Phuket tourist trail. Of course you don't get completely spared of the huge tourist groups but they leave in the early afternoon. The bungalows are basic but absolutely fine for the price and location (a "leap" from the beach)!
