Railay Phutawan Resort

Phutawan has gradually evolved over the years to offer a wide mix of rooms for everyone from budget solo travellers up to midrange-budget families.

Spread around a frangipani-filled hill, fresh-scented air-con villas come with large windows, high ceilings, private terraces, TVs, fridges, polished concrete bathrooms and thoughtful extras like umbrellas and slippers. You'll pay twice as much for a similar room at Railay West. Bright and clean standard air-con editions are in a three-storey block with private porches (some with sea views). The plushest rooms occupy a sleek two-floor building next to the small swimming pool with terrific views over nearby cliffs and the sea beyond. While backpackers who are stuck should still keep Puthawan in mind, the bamboo fan bungalows are a drastic step down. Huge front porches, cloth lanterns and decent-quality mattresses all hint that they were once lovely, but by time of writing they displayed lopsided floors, cracked windows, mouldy walls and grimy cold-water bathrooms. The bungalow we checked out lacked a mosquito net, which would be problematic as the swing-open glass windows don’t have screens and the mozzies tend to swarm out here. These bungalows aren’t included on booking sites or even the resort’s own website. Despite this dirty little secret, Phutawan’s air-con rooms represent good value if you don’t mind the inland location. We wouldn’t be surprised to see the fan bungalows upgraded or replaced soon, so do pop your head in if you’re passing through.
