We first visited the The Racha just after it opened and immediately fell in love with the place…
Description & Location
The Racha is a simply stunning boutique resort, with Moorish style whitewashed walls, clean simple lines and total elegance. Superb facilities. Located on Racha Yai, a small tropical island reached only by 35 minute speedboat ride from the southern ferry point at Chalong on Phuket (Chalong is about 60 minutes drive from Phuket Airport, traveling through the centre of the island from North to South).
The Racha has a total of 85 single storey Villas and Suites.
Spread over the extensive resort estate stretching up from the main beach front to the cusp of the hill. All are incredibly spacious, incredibly cool, both in the style and ambience.
You have a choice of :
44 Deluxe Villas which offer 43 sqm of total indoor and living space excluding terrace. They are spread over the estate, in semi-detached two villa units, with most at the hill top. Some are interconnecting, either through the terrace or interior door. Most have garden view.
11 Grand Deluxe Villas. Larger, with 53 sqm of total living space excluding terrace. They are free standing detached and located further forward.
6 Grand Deluxe Villas with Pool. As above, but with your own private pool located at the rear of the villa to ensure privacy and romance!
4 Junior Pool Suite. Some of the largest villas with 86 sqm of total living space, excluding pool, terrace and separated living area.
9 Spa Pool Villas. 72 sqm, excluding private pool and terrace. Located overlooking the spa.
4 Grand Pool Villa Suites . 93s qm, excluding private pool and terrace. Probably the most in demand villa, with panoramic views across the bay and huge 35 sqm infinity pool.
6 Two bedroom Grand Pool Suite. As above, but with two bedrooms.
The Lighthouse – Arguably the most unique accommodation in the region. Spread over 5 floors with two master bedrooms and own single bedrooms, living space and private pool.
