What a great stay! ”

I really enjoyed my stay at the Racha. The beach and water is phenomenal (probably the best I’ve seen in Thailand) and the hotel is really well designed with a garden feel and the villas have privacy. The rooms are beautiful, lots of space and with terrace and additional outdoor shower. They make some gorgeous touches like scents of jasmine and lemongrass everywhere, bed turn downs with little gifts, special drinks and fruit gifts throughout the day and complimentary yoga classes in their studio. The staff in all areas of the hotel are attentive, professional and friendly and I felt very welcome and looked after. There are a lot of activities organised by the hotel such as boat trips, diving, walking tours etc and they have 2 restaurants which look over the beach. The only parts of my stay I would improve is having more to do on the island outside of the hotel, as there aren’t really other restaurants, shops or places to visit, so my stay was mainly contained to the hotel/hotel activities. Also all the day trips and private charter boats come to this bay, which isn’t big, so it’s very busy during the day, while the other bays on the island are quiet.

True relaxation”

From the moment you enter the Thera Chill Lounge, you feel the resort's service. The sea was beautiful, and even the butterflies that inhabit La Cha contribute to the relaxed atmosphere of the resort. The staff's service was also excellent, and the food was delicious. The whole atmosphere felt like a moment of rest.
