Bhu Nga Thani Resort and Spa
Ranked #2 of 12 Hotels in Railay Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 July 2012

The hotel was very new and modern with large, well appointed rooms with generous balconies offering glimpses of the gorgeous mountains. Definitely the newest and most luxurious hotel on Railay (possibly with the exception of the much more expensive Rayvadee which was only on view to guests). The hotel looks spectacular at night and the grounds, whilst not expansive are beautifully maintained. Whilst the hotel is on the East side, it has a lovely infinity pool (about 15m long) which overlooks the sea and is only 350m walk over to the West side beach. Only 2 minutes walk from shops, bars, restaurants and cafes and 10 minutes walk to the Princess Cave. The hotel needs to staff the pool bar and possibly offer a cocktail happy hour to attract customers as often we were the only ones in the pool and would have ordered drinks were there an attendant to service us. Otherwise we were very happy at Bhu Nga Thani. Do take the rope climb up to the look out if you are fit and adventurous, but we warned your clothes will be very muddy!

I loved this hotel – made our trip!
Loved, loved, loved Railay – pure paradise, my fave beach destination in asia by a mile. Could not recommend it enough.
We visited in mid April this year - we were unimpressed with Phuket and left early for Railay, wanting less crowded beaches and bogan tourists but nothing too honeymoon-ish . . . we love eating out and downing the odd sunset cocktail.

Gorgeous setting, great pool, gardens were beautifully maintained, rooms were just beautiful. Had that perfect mix of luxury without losing the personality of Thailand.
Shamed the surrounding hotels in Railay by a mile – every time we returned to our hotel or room we were so happy we’d made the right choice. Oh the smugness!
Great pool for lounging by too. We stayed in a deluxe elegant twin room – spacious room, very very clean, amazingly comfy beds and shower to die for.
Location is great – close to all the restaurants, 5 mins walk to either of the beaches.
I was hesitant given the longboat thing as I had a lot of luggage (followed on from a work trip!)- but it was easy and pretty seamless. The transfer to the airport was great too – worth organising via the hotel.
Fronts onto the mangroves, as most place do, but not an issue at all.
Staff were good – no complaints here. And breakfast was great too - buffet.
Our only minor grizzle would be the prices of the spa/massages – but easily solved as there are plenty of other places to go in Railay.

We got a really good last minute rate on their website too – about 65% discount if I remember correctly. Serious bliss – I’m definitely coming back!

I love Railay, nice place to relax, liked this hotel very big. Stay with my wife and little kid in April, nice and quiet, very clean nice room and friendly staff. I not like the breakfast (include) but was chewable at least. One man stay in the pool bar make cocktails was ok, but he say many bad word and my little kid and wife can hear him. (not nice)

Room Tip: Nice balcony overlook the ocean is nice

Firstly, great location if you want to get away from everything, there are only a handful of bars and restaurants on the same road as the hotel (need to travel by boat to get anywhere else). The restaurants were very simple all situated in shacks, they didnt look very clean so we ate in the hotel restaurant most nights, it wasnt expensive and cant complain about the food.
The hotel's breakfast wasnt great but if you just wanted some toast, an omlette, some fruit and tea it was sufficient.
The hotel rooms were lovely, stayed in a sea view, it wasnt sea front but you could see the sea in the distance. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would definately recommend this hotel for a short getaway but no more than 3 days as there isnt much to do on railay beach.
We took a tour trip which was quite expensive (approx gbp77 per person) but it was fantastic included lunch, transfers, quad biking, white water rafting and elephant trekking.
We had spa treatment one masseus was brilliant and the other didnt have a clue what she was doing, after complaining the excellent masseus redid my friend's massage.

Overall had a lovely stay at bhu nga thani on railay beach so would definately recommend a visit here.

From the outside Bhu nga thani looked like the best hotel on the beach.

Have just spent 5 nights in this hotel and was very disappointed with the experience. The staff in particular were very unfriendly and didn't make you feel particularly welcome at all. Service was also terrible, we felt as if we were putting the reception or restaurant staff out by asking for anything. And the food was not great at all, considering this is supposed to be a quality hotel. Don't even get me started on the spa treatments. Firstly the 'special offer' that was advertised in the room (steam + massage + facial for a package price) was no longer available so I could have that. False advertising then. So then special offer I took instead was for a 10 min steam + 60 min massage. The steam room was luke warm at best and so dirty I didn't want to sit down in it. We were offered a 10 min extension to the massage instead which wasn't honoured and the full price still charged!

The location isn't great but we were expecting that, at least it is in close proximity to the bars and restaurants so you don't have to eat at the hotel. And only a short walk to the nicer beaches on the other side.

The only saving grace is the pool area which despite being overlooked by everyone walking along the public pathway is nice.
