A great place to stay in Railay Beach

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 6 Apr 2024via mobile
The boat ride into Railay beach is beautiful, however, the boho vibe and look of Railay is a bit shabby. The Bhu Nga is a little bit of luxury in Railay.
Great location just off the main pier on East beach.
The hotel and pool are nice and pleasant rather than luxurious. It’s a solid 4 star.
Food wise; breakfast is good but not great.
Lunch and dinner all from the same menu. Food is good quality, service is good if a little slow.
You can eat the same food quality on walking street for about half the price.
There is limited views from the rooms, especially at ground level, so go for a Villa or a room on a higher floor.
Beware of leaving food or drink unattended by the pool as the local monkeys are not shy but are amusing.
The pool does 2 for 1 cocktails 2-5 daily which is good (frozen daiquiri are very nice).
East Railay beach does not exist (it’s mangrove) so you need to go to Weat for the crowds & bars or better still take some drinks and walk along to Phra Nang Beach which is the highlight of Railay beach.

Bhu Nga Thani in Railay had the friendliest staff. The location in Railay was good in that it had the coolest breezes in the area. It was not closest to the most beautiful beaches (also the hottest part of the area) but that was no problem for us, we could easily walk to the beaches. Room was huge, had everything we needed (including bottled water) and very comfortable and clean. The grounds and gardens were very well kept and beautiful. The pool and bar were nice to cool off when the beach was too hot. The staff in the restaurant were so pleasant and very sweet and friendly to chat with. Food selection both western and Asian was great. We ordered a bottle of sparkling wine and enjoyed it by the pool. The staff were accommodating and helpful with transfers to the airport and housekeeping needs. They recommended a spa for massages at a nearby hotel. I definitely recommend staying here.

The resort was recently renovated and looked beautiful and new. The room was spacious and the layout was well designed. Bed and pillows were super comfortable and beach towels were provided in the room. A/C worked well and temperature adjustable. The resort is very close to the pier for easy access when arriving or departing. Easy and enjoyable walk to Railay beach. Very clean and nice swimming pool with full bar and plenty of lounge chairs. Most of all, the staff at this resort was simply amazing. Every person we saw acknowledged us with a smile and greetings. The restaurant staff was eager to assist and always with a smile. Our compliments to the management team for building such a terrific team. They made our stay so memorable.

Room tip: Resort has a nice business/office/library room with A/C and two computers. Plenty of chairs to sit and read a good book, too.

We love this place, where we always feel welcome.
The hotel has improved their already beautiful restaurant with new furnitures and a new chef.
Food&wine is excellent and affordable. But more important is the friendly service from the hotel’s staff and manager.
Mr Free and his colleagues made our stay unforgettable!
A visit to the pool area is of course mandatory, especially between 2-5 pm (happy hour😎)
Spacious clean rooms with good beds. Breakfast very good including the Italian 🇮🇹 coffee.

Room tip: 3rd floor rooms have some sea view.

Solid stay on Railay East. Not the most incredible resort we've ever stayed, but a decent deal for the price. The rooms are actually very large with nice beds, and very large Bath tubs. There is also a large outdoor shower area that was a nice touch. The room service food was actually quite good. Breakfast buffet was good, not great. Part of the resort was under construction while we stayed, which was a bit of a bummer, but theoretically that's for the better for future visitors. When we arrived, it was all exposed dirt instead of grass, but then by the time we left, all of the grass sod was installed, which felt like a major upgrade to see it transform over a few days. It was super nice that the hotel entrance is only a few hundred feet from the dock where the ferry/transfer drops you off from Krabi or Phi Phi. This made it really convenient any time we wanted to talk a day tour, etc. Overall, would recommend based on the price and the area, but wouldn't rave about the customer service or the resort itself.

Room tip: borrow a pool towel if you're going on a day trip. The 7 islands long tail boat tour (private boat for 3500 tbh) was incredible!
