Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The Racha sits on the beautiful Andaman island of Koh Racha Yai, just 35 minutes by speed boat from Phuket’s Chalong Bay.

Rooms at The Racha

There are 85 charming villas at The Racha, which are spread over 20 acres of verdant tropical grounds and each one was built to minimalise the impact upon its surroundings. With eight villa types, many have private terraces, open-air rain showers, outdoor daybeds and private infinity or plunge pools. Indoors, you’ll find a crisp, pure white palette alongside rich wood furniture, and spacious rooms featuring plenty of modern touches.

For a special occasion, ask for the Lighthouse. This separate five-story retreat has four bedrooms and an observation lounge at the top, with 360 degree views of Racha Yai and the Andaman Sea.

Food and Drink

At The Racha, dine on western cuisine and Thai specialities on the picturesque terrace, or fresh barbequed seafood down on the beach. As the nights draw in, relax to the laidback music of the charming bar, and enjoy a cocktail beneath the stars.

Activities at The Racha

Here is a nirvana for water-babies, whether it's taking a dip in the outdoor pool, enjoying some Thai-style therapy with a flower bath  - followed by a traditional massage - or venturing to the waters off the island, renowned for their incredible marine life, with a diving or snorkelling excursion.
