Racha Private Island Resort | Phuket, Thailand

The Racha Resort is located on its own stunning, serene island, very close to Phuket, Thailand.  The villas here are whitewashed, very chic and in direct contrast to the breathtaking turquoise ocean that is just steps away. The Racha is an eco-friendly resort and it’s clean lines and uncluttered decor make it the perfect retreat from a sun drenched day on the water and beach. Some suites have their own plunge pools, ALL have spacious, luxurious decor and linens and all have bathrooms you will probably want to spend the day in..outdoor rain showers and huge spa tubs!

There are spectacular sea views at the Racha and you can even rent the Lighthouse, which is five stories, two bedrooms and has 360 degree views! Eating is an adventure at this resort.  The Earth Cafe has foods to suit your mood as well as the Fire Grill by the pool, which serves great pizzas and salads in the daytime and gourmet meals at night.  The Sunset Beach Restaurant serves Thai food and burgers on the beach for lunch and seafood and steak at night. 

After dinner, you can head to the Lobby Bar for stellar cocktails, music and karaoke.  If you are still in the mood to party, head on over to the Club del Mar Beach Club for music and socializing. Activities are endless such as ATV riding, bikes, snorkeling, scuba diving (Racha Dive Shop), the exquisite Anumba Spa for rejuvenating, yoga classes, mountain biking, kayaking, deep-sea fishing or take a Thai cooking class.  You can also take a boat to Phuket for some awesome exploring and shopping.
