What a beautiful and amazing place! This hotel is in the perfect location with very very easy access to both West Beach and East Beach. The staff are very polite and friendly. We stayed in a privacy cottage with a hot tub, what a great place to stay! New Years eve was fantastic!

Unfortunately I cannot report anything good about the Railay Bay Resort and Spa. We stayed from January 1st, in a privacy cottage to find on arrival that although our booking voucher clearly stated ‘Occupancy’ of ‘2 adults and 1 Child’ we were to be charged and extra THB 1,500

Before our trip, I read some really BAD reviews about Railay Bay Resort. I kept on reading about the rude staff, the extremely dirty rooms, etc. I started getting seriously STRESSED about having booked a holiday there, but it was TOO LATE to back out at that point. We decided

Arrived at the hotel parking lot, attendant demanded payment despite the booking and included parking. Not picked up from the pier as booked, so paid an extortionate long tail pirate instead. Rude, unhelpful staff at check in. Porter took us to our room and then wouldnt leave

Dear LNM - did you get an answer as we found it the worst hotel we have ever experienced - front office staff, of which there was an army were incompetent and extreme rude, at times finding our many serious issues amusing (including my child’s illness !).

My daughter recovered after 4 days. I speak basic Thai so the language was not the issue.. The hotel is very poorly run; even though my accomodation was clearly booked for an occupancy of 3 (at extra charge at time of booking) on arrival the hotel insisted on an extra occupancy surcharge for the room, but bizarrely issued 3 breakfast vouchers! It’s a rip off. It was so bad that we checked out and went to the Bhu Nga Thani which is fantastic in comparison! I can only advise to avoid the Railay Bay Resort at all costs!

Also as useful as a leaking boat. This propert needs to be avoided. No response from any hotel manger. No toilet paper in the room. No pool towels until after 9am. Beach front pool has only 10 loungers for hundreds of guests! Dirty stained bathroom floors. Rude staff. Terrible breakfast! Omelette station using warm egg pulp - so look out for the lack of toilet rolls!! Will post my full review with names, details and photos shortly. I have stayed in thousands of properties all over the world , this would be in the top 3 worst, mainly as the management are careless and rude.

"Ask for the "west" location (closer to the restaurant, nicest beach and the pool)"
"Opt for rooms in the middle of the resort."
"We loved the privacy cottages."
"Avoid those rooms which are close to the main path. It can be noisy sometime."
"Villa near the west beach"
