Captivating paradise on a small tropical island near Phuket

Indulge mind, body and spirit at The Racha – an eco-luxury beach resort fringed by the powdery sands of Batok Bay. By day you can learn everything from Thai cookery and craft making to diving in the Andaman. While evenings are made for cocktails and stargazing, after dinner in one of the resort’s three signature restaurants. With 85 private retreats dotted across twenty acres of lush grounds, The Racha is the ultimate get-away-from-it-all escape.

Each villa blends minimalist elegance with the ultimate in creature comforts – and celebrates the tropical setting. There are private terraces, open-air rain showers and outdoor daybeds to make the most of the laid-back ambience. Many have their own ozonated infinity-edge or plunge pool – complete with music that’s piped-in to enjoy even when you’re in the water. Indoors, you’ll find a crisp, pure white palette alongside rich wood furniture, and spacious rooms featuring plenty of modern touches. For sheer indulgence, ask for the Lighthouse. This separate five-story pool retreat has panoramic island views.

When it’s time to get out and explore, the best of the island’s treasures are right on your doorstep. You could arrange a tailor-made scuba class and tour, discovering the colourful world beneath the Andaman. Or head off the verdant grounds, to nature – on a hiking, kayaking or mountain-biking trip. For something a little more adrenalin-filled, try an ATV ride across the countryside. Then return to The Racha for an afternoon of pampering at the world-acclaimed Anumba Spa, complete with an ocean-facing gym and OM Studio. In accordance with Thai law, all beaches in Thailand are open to the public and Batok Bay, fronting the resort, is no exception.


Enjoy your stay!

SLH Considerate Collection

Environmentally Conscious

From a bio-fuel station where food waste is converted into bio-gas – a clean source of energy which can significantly curb the greenhouse effect - to a hydroponic farm where fresh, nutrient-rich, pesticide-free produce is grown and supplies the resort’s three dining outlets, The Racha passionately believes that luxury shouldn’t come at a cost for the environment. On land, the resort has been built in harmony with the island’s natural topography, while at sea, The Racha sponsors a group of volunteers as part of the Reefball project, which restores coral reefs damaged during the Tsunami in 2004.

Cultural Custodians

In the Land of Smiles, there is always something to celebrate. The Racha observes and honours various Thai cultural festivals throughout the year, actively encouraging guests to participate in the ceremonies while educating visitors on the significance behind the rituals for a deeper insight into Siamese culture. The coconut tree holds special symbolic meaning for the island and for The Racha, as many of the trees are the island’s original inhabitants. All the villas have been built carefully around the trees, with some coming through the terraces or through the eaves of some roofs.

Community Minded

Nestled on the small pristine island of Racha Yai just south of Phuket, The Racha keeps its fellow islanders close at heart. Much of the charm of Racha Yai is that little has changed over the years - water buffalos are still used to work the land from which organic ingredients are sourced for the hotel’s bathroom amenities, while many parts are still covered in dense forest. One of the ways in which The Racha supports the island community is by offering authentic, locally run activities, from traditional Thai cooking classes and boxing sessions to hand-line fishing with local fishermen.

The Racha How to Get Here

How to get here

You may arrange your own transfer upon arrival at Phuket International Airport, or arrange a private transfer (subject to charges) with the hotel to get to The Racha Chalong Lounge which is located within close proximity to Chalong Pier. The hotel will contact you after your hotel booking is confirmed. The estimated travelling time is one hour from Phuket International Airport to The Racha Chalong Lounge and 30-40 minutes to The Racha by speedboat. Please note that the travelling times may vary and is subject to traffic and weather conditions.

Departure times: Chalong Pier to The Racha (Racha Yai Island) 1pm / The Racha (Racha Yai Island) to Chalong Pier 11:30am

The above schedule may change subject to flight arrival times of guests or weather and sea conditions, but the boat will not leave earlier than advertised as above in any case. For safety reasons, we do not operate the boat at night.

We recommend guests arrive at The Racha Chalong Lounge (which operates from 8am-5pm) at least 30 minutes prior to their scheduled boat departure time. The Chalong Lounge offers guests a retreat to freshen up and check-in prior to boat transfers to the resort, and guests will enjoy complimentary amenities such as welcome drinks, light snacks and complimentary Wi-Fi.
