Railay Great View Resort & Spa

The aptly named Great View marks the end of the walkway at the northern end of Railay East, so you might as well stop reading now if you want a central location.

For seclusion seekers, the gorgeous cabanas perched on brick stilts over a wooded hillside, helpful staff, private beach and hilltop infinity pool with, yes, great views, combine to make this a top pick. Created out of natural woods and bamboo, the villas are best suited to nature-loving couples who appreciate their comforts. Vaulted thatch ceilings lead down to sea-facing glass doors opening onto huge terraces with classy furniture and benches. Interiors feature several more windows along with elegant beds with mosquito nets, woven bamboo furniture, daybeds, desks, LCD TVs with DVD players, minibars, safes and spacious bathrooms with rain showers and glazed-glass sunroofs. All rooms have air-con plus ceiling fans; we imagine they stay comfy with just the fans, as it tends to be breezy up on the hill. The resort rents out kayaks and offers tour bookings, a restaurant, massage, free WiFi and a minimart, so you don’t ever really need to leave. Families can rent two connecting rooms, but the steep stairways could be a hazard to small children. We were quoted walk-in rates that were 2,000 baht (no joke) below the rack rates listed on the resort’s website. Expect upward price fluctuations in peak season.
