Railei Beach Club

Private beach houses for rent

What we say: 4 stars

Spanning the entire northern half of West Railay beach, this community of beach houses was established by foreign travellers in 1985 and was the first development to appear on Railay. Back then, it was just a handful of simple wooden houses with no electricity -- it must have been one peaceful place. Although recent times have seen major development in Railay, the beach club has managed to retain its low key character. It now features 33 homes, each unique in size and design and spread well apart on leafy grounds. The homes -- which range from simple cottages for two to multi-storey villas that sleep eight -- are privately owned and rented out by beach club management when the owners aren't around. We weren't allowed to look inside the houses, but they appear to be outstanding options for families and couples. A few have air-con in the bedrooms but most are fan-cooled. They all come with kitchen facilities, and some of the porches are divine places to sit back and watch the sun set. Like a regular resort, the club has housekeepers and receptionists. Unlike a regular resort, staff can stock your fridge with groceries before you arrive, grills can be rented, and you can even hire a private Thai chef to cook your meals. It may not be the most luxurious, but this is certainly the most interesting option on Railay West. Prices seem quite reasonable for what you get, but vary considerably -- see their website for details.
