Before booking a hotel in Railay have a serious think about what you want from your holiday.
If you just want a place to sleep, and somewhere that is close to all of the beaches then this resort will suit you. It is very basic.

We stayed at the Railay Princess in January 2013 and found our stay rather unpleasant.
The rooms are spacious but aren't finished to a particularly high standard, there seemed to be unfinished details everywhere. The water coming out of the tapes and shower was brown and smelled stagnant.
The hotel food is very poor and there are a lot of ants in the dining area. We were due to spend 6 nights here but we left earlier.

On a positive note the staff are really incredible at the Railay Princess Resort, they were incredible polite and accommodating.

Arrived in Railay after 15 years and as we closed in with the longtailboat I almost bursted into tears. First time in Raileh was 1990, it was a true paradise with very few tourists.
Some climbers and backpackers and the beaches Raileh west and Phra nang beach was so far from crowded they could be.
But now...
Its not a secret anymoore, dully understandable, it is one of the most scenic places in the country.
But the owners of this peninsula could have gone another way debeloping it.
But in true Thaistyle the term of thinking is today and maybe tomorrow, not further.
They choosed moore money today and lets see about tomorrow instead of going for a longterm exclusive path that would have saved this placed for the future.
But no, instead they crank up 4-storey hotels packed together as closa as possible leaving the place no way to recover from to many toursts.
I was very, very sad as I saw what they've done :(
On top of that can be mensioned that the pricerange of food is now higher then in my home country Sweden.
The hotel itself?
Well...
The rooms re alright but not moore.
But really folks, dont go here, its just depressing, its too late now, cutrains closed.

First up, if you want to stay in a hotel that opens into the main beach (Railay West) then this is not the hotel for you. I thought the location of this hotel was perfect for me because I would prefer to be away from the beach crowd at Railay West. There is a shortcut that brings you directly to Railay West Beach, which nicer than Railay East Beach. Yet the hotel is located nearer to Railay East, where food and drinks come in greater varieties and lower prices. Its location is the best of both worlds, if you would have it.

I was very pleased with the rooms. Spacious, clean, comfortable. Definitely would not mind staying in this hotel again if I revisit Railay.

Room Tip: If you arrive at Railay West, walk through the Railay Village hotel. There is a rather inconspicuous shortcut that takes you all the way to the reception/dining area of Railay Princess. You practically walk through a back alley of sorts. You have to look out for signs or just ask around. If you arrive at Railay East, it's probably not that hard to find the hotel. It is currently between construction sites, and there are signboards to show you the way. Rooms at the second and third floor are probably better since all rooms have a balcony

Although it was not a fancy hotel and had no great views to the beaches but still it was a great hotel for a good price. The room was clean and nice, staff was also very helpfull. Only the shower was a bit old compared to the general impression about the room.
Massage at the spa was totally the best we have experienced although it was quite expensive.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the pool was nice

When we first arrived I was ready to turn around and go somewhere else as getting to reception involved walking along an incomplete path next to a construction site. So glad that we didn't!

We were given juice and cold towels, while checking in. Then taken up to a lovely clean room, with a decent size balcony, overlooking the pool (all rooms have a pool view).

Rooms are well equipped, but on occasion it took a while for the air-conditioner to cool the room (presumably because the rooms are quite big). The minibar’s reasonably priced and you’re given complimentary water each day. Bathroom was very nice with a decent shower.

Breakfast was good, though there wasn't a huge amount of choice. But the view while eating is just fabulous, the dining area is on decking above a pond with lots of huge colourful fish, beyond that is the small but lovely infinity pool, then the backdrop is huge limestone cliffs and (for us) bright blue skies, it’s just beautiful. The pool area feels like an oasis and the construction work surrounding the hotel (which we were quite worried about) is barely audible.

The hotel is excellently placed, it’s on the east Railay with Phra Nang Cave to its right, local bars and restaurants to the left and west Railay beach (perfect for sunset) just behind. Everything is a 5-10 minute walk away.

Word of warning, if you arrive with cases on Railay west, it’s better to take paved walkway through Railay Bay resort to get to Railay east. We made the mistake of taking the ‘Walking Street’ which quickly turned into a bit of a jungle trek.

Our stay here was perfect (especially considering the price) and I’d certainly stay again!
