Railay Bay Resort & Spa (SHA Extra Plus)
Railay,Railay - View on map
"We booked the hotel with Agoda.com - including a free upgrade to a privacy cottage. I wouldnt recommend paying extra for a beach facing villa because you are facing the pool then the beach so you dont get any privacy in your room - privacy cottages are set back a little, we were in room 9004 which was on West Railay as the numbers get higher you are heading to East Railay which isnt as nice. If you read any comments about the staff then i would ignore them - i would say that the island has mixed cultures from the surrounding countries. The thai people are lovely and yes some of the other staff that work their are little abrupt but i would ignore it We got to the hotel via traveling from Krabi airport to ao nang via taxi (500bhart) and then longtail boat to west Railay - be aware of low tide and having to wade out in the sea with bags - it cost 100 bhart each and goes when 8 or more people were ready. Recommend only looking at hotels on West Railay if you want the beautiful scenery - hence why East railay is cheaper and to be honest smells with sewage. The tide goes at lunch leaving a muddy shore behind. I think this part of the island is the trade entrance for the hotels. Boat ride from Railay to Krabi 45mins longtail boat - nothing really worth visiting in the town - would suggest Ao Nang for shopping and if you need western shops this is your place. Hired a longtail boat for half a day 1600 bhart - island hoping around chicken island and Pra Nang Beach worth exploring - Ko Phi Phi is at least 2.30hrs away via longtail boat. Rayavadee Hotel is a must for dinner for at least 1 night - it is one of the top 100 places to stay in the world and whilst it is expensive to sleep their the restaurant is good value - you pay about £30 for wine compared to about £10 back home but to be honest we were sick of Singha beer towards the end of our tip. I would say that the Railay Bay resort which is next door to Rayavadee is the second best hotel on the Island es"

Sand Sea Resort (SHA Extra Plus)
Railay,Railay - View on map
"It was a superb experience, the location of this hotel is the best among all the hotels in railay...infact the dropp off and pick up point of all the long tail and speed boats is the sand sea hotel on the beach which makes it the most convenient location on railay west beach since sea is the only mode of transport to the west railsy...the hotel staff was very attentive and helpful...specially chollette the front desk manager and the bell boy saman were very impressive...all category rooms(i checked all categories) including the basic ones were very well maintained and very spacious...you have a free internet excess throughout the hotel...there is a minimart within the hotel premisis...an amazing spa facility....and one of the best restaurants for food in the railay(though the service at the restaurant was disappointing).... No room service and alcohol free hotel are the two biggest drawback if the hotel..."

Railay Princess Resort & Spa (SHA Extra Plus)
Railay,Railay - View on map
"I think the Railay Princess is the nicest hotel in Railay for the price range. The rooms are very new and reminiscent of the quality of rooms found in very developed countries such as in the USA or Europe. The rooms are set around a pond and the pool, each with balconies. The only downfall is that it is not directly on the beach, but its a short 1 minute walk. We had also stayed at the Railay Bay which has a nicer location for their pool, but the rooms at Railay Princess were much nicer and actually slightly cheaper on Agoda."

Railay Village Resort (SHA Extra Plus)
Railay,Railay - View on map
"certainly best hotel in Railay beach, very nice area. we recommend people and our friends to go. very beautiful landscape. just be prepared the beach and hotel are bit remote. if you like to rent a speed boat they will charge you more vs Phi Phi, for instance, You have to bargain hard as they inflate the prices. Be prepared that hotel and whole area has no pier for ferries and is reachable by longtail boat. so you have to get off the ferry and board the longtail boat at say 200 m away from shore. it is OK just be prepared for that. the territory of a hotel is small due to limestone cliffs around but very nice. you don't need to go anywhere, you are in the beauty there. definitely a place to go for seekers of natural beauty. people from Krabi came to our beach every day. that says something.

Railay Phutawan Resort
Railay,Railay - View on map
"As Railay is more expensive to live at, I do understand that some people prefer to stay at Ao Nang or Krabi. Nevertheless, I would definitely recommend to stay at Railay for a few days. My boyfriend and I went to this Resort at the end of August for two nights (bungalow) and extended our stay to 4 nights, because we absolutely loved it. The Pool and it’s view are so beautiful and I find the location of this resort better than any others resort at Railay (as you can see all of the resorts down at the beaches). It’s surrounded by nature, It’s quiet and you can reach everything by foot. When you walk to the beach you might even meet some monkeys on your way. The Pool and Poolbar-area was open until 10pm, so we enjoyed coming home in the evening having a quip dip and then dinner at the Poolbar, with the most amazing view. The Bungalow was beautiful, we even had a small balkony where we dried our swimwear. The Air con was leaking a tiny bit but that didn’t bother us as it did it’s job properly. The bathroom is not air conditioned by the way, so you have to keep that door shut, as the bathroom is sort of open to the outside the whole time (sounds worse but didn’t bother at all. The ceiling is very high and the roof sits on the walls with a little gap, so the wet air can escape. The resort provided shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in a dispenser in the bathroom. The bed was huge and cozy. We would definitely recommend this resort to people who want to have a relaxed time and wanna go there during low season (because I can’t tell how it’s like there during high season). We spend 1300 Baht per night for the bungalow. We took the longboat from Ao NamMao to Railay East for 100 Baht per Person (every hour at half past). You can walk to the Resort from Railay Pier."

Railay Great View Resort
Railay,Railay - View on map
"we stayed here for 5 nights in a standard bungalow for about $45/ night. the bungalow was high up on stilts with fan only but very spacious and brand new. we felt like getting a high class bungalow worth much more than what we paid. the balcony was great, lovely ocean views and very cozy chairs!! the bungalow had everything what we needed: safe deposit box, mosquito net, tv, mini fridge, phone etc. the bathroom was amazing, although it had a shower only. the more expensive ones come with bathtubs. we were dropped off at railay west and walked over to railay east (maybe 5-10 min) and from there it was another 10-15 min to the hotel. it was a bit of a sweaty hike with our backpacks in the heat, but we didn't bother. the hotel has everything you can wish for, always considering what we paid ($45)!! a great and refreshing pool, very nice restaurant with awesome food (we had thai food all the time and it was delicious!!), a little gazebo where you can enjoy massage at a very reasonable price. you are surrounded by limestone cliffs and water, very scenic. we actually liked the location very much because it was away from all the hustle and bustle and unpleasant smells. railay has kind of a garbage/ wastewater etc. problem. specially railay east is not very appealing, so beeing away from it all was actually a relief. coming back to the hotel always felt like coming back to a retreat. railay great view is in my opinion the best choice in railay east, west and tonsai except for the rayavadee probably...staff at railay great view were very nice and helpful, especially the guys in the restaurant always made us feel very welcomed. the only downside was the noise from the longtail boats."

Bhu Nga Thani Resort & Spa (SHA Plus+)
Railay,Railay - View on map
"Bhu Nga Thani is located on the east side of Railay, which some will tell you does not have as nice a beach as the west side. This is true, but when we were there (early Oct), we were very happy to be on the east side of Railay, since the west side was so windy and seas so rough. The walk to the west side is also very quick and a very nice beach exists closer to the east side, including a path occupied by monkeys you can hand food to as you walk through. Careful, though, many monkeys might come to you if they see lots of food ... though I never saw any aggressive behavior. 100 yards down from the hotel is a nice little restaurant called the Relax Bar (and other restaurants beyond). You sit on the wooden floor (on pillows) and the family run place serves the best Pad Thai I had in Thailand, along with very tasty papaya salad, mango smoothies, and all other dishes we tried, which were many on our repeated returns. All 5 or 6 tables were always taken and the family even ate lunch on the floor with us, occasionally the small children bringing us dishes (along with mom) and making for a very relaxing atmosphere and aptly named hang out. The hotel itself is very nice. The staff was great, the room was as clean as could be expected in such a wet environment (rainy season too), but I would suggest trying to get a room on the 3rd floor. We had a 1st floor room the first night and then asked to be moved to the 3rd floor the next 2 nights of our stay. The result was a great view of Railay (water, boats, picturesque jagged hills with trees, etc.), and much better internet reception. The breakfast was a fairly standard western style pancakes, eggs, etc. (but still nice), but the room service Thai food was very good and at very good prices. If we ever return to Railay (and we hope to for sure) we will definitely stay at Bhu Nga Thani!"

Diamond Cave Resort & Spa (SHA Extra Plus)
Railay,Railay - View on map
"My wife and I stayed at this hotel end of November 2016. We found the location of this hotel very well, because Railay is not that big, so it is not neccessary to book some expensive hotel on West beach because from East side you are on west side for less than 15 minutes. The garden of this hotel is very nice, the room service (cleaning and towels change) is possible if you request it on hotel reception (if you leave your key). It is possible to pay for breakfast - we did it for one day and it was OK. In general, this hotel is good choice considering that on beautiful Railay you will have much more activities outside of hotel room. :)"

Rayavadee Hotel (SHA Plus+)
Railay,Railay - View on map
"This was our first time traveling in the Krabi / PhiPhi / Railay area and we booked a different night at each hotel. We found a good deal on Rayavadee and decided to splurge for one of the nights. It far exceeded our expectations and it was the best place we've ever stayed in Thailand. The facilities and staff were great, the bungalow felt like a nice house with the room being upstairs, food was good - but the scenery is the best part. It was hard to stay at other hotels after this because nothing else can come close."

Sunrise Tropical Resort
Railay,Railay - View on map
"We booked a Tropical Villa, which is a stand-alone villa with a king bed and large bathroom. Whilst not the newest, nor fanciest hotel in Railay, it's small-to-medium size means easy access to everything, with short walks between your room and the reception/dining area. Buffet breakfast was OK with freshly cooked eggs to order. It's located on the East (mangrove side) of Railay Beach, but in my opinion, is in the best location as it is half-way between West Railay beach and the Pranang Cave beach (my favourite when there's no crowds). I've stayed at a few places in Railay but now only stay here, as it's the best overall value for money hotel. I don't waste money paying for a ritzy hotel room that I am never in.....especially considering the beauty of Railay Beach."
