Even better than the brochure

What we say: 4.5 stars

The Racha opened in 2003 and quickly joined the ranks of Conde Nast Traveler's list of hottest new resorts. With its white-washed walls and minimalist architecture, this heavenly resort looks like it belongs in the Mediterranean, not some far-flung Thai island. Of course, this kind of experience doesn't come cheap, but at least here you get your money's worth. They have two pools, a tennis court, basketball court, three restaurants, a bar with live music each night, a fitness centre, the amazing Anumbra spa, a yoga studio, their own dive shop, and the best beachfront location on the island. The gorgeous villas are done in a simple style, yet contain everything you'd expect for these prices, including plasma TVs and espresso coffee makers. Every villa has a private terrace and outdoor rain shower, but the pricier suites also have a private jacuzzi tub or infinity-edged swimming pool. At the time of research in 2011, new pool villas and junior suites were being built. Staff are polite and professional and The Racha operates an on-site English school as part of continuous staff training. The Racha also offers traditional Thai Buddhist wedding ceremony packages — complete with monks. Be sure to book online to get the best prices and a promotional discount.
