Railay East has four bland but large midrange resorts: Anyavee, Diamond Cave, Diamond Private, and Viewpoint.

We opted to list the latter because it struck us as the lesser of four evils, but it’s really a tossup. The only reason we’re including any of them is that, if everywhere else is full, you’ll probably find a vacancy here. When we inquired about a room, the young receptionist looked at us like she was a random person on the street who didn’t feel like giving a lost traveller directions. One of her coworkers came to the rescue and, while not exactly friendly, was quick to show us a couple of rooms. Standard air-con digs are in ageing concrete two-floor stacks that just keep on going into oblivion up a hill. The first room we saw was dark but otherwise liveable, with blue-tile floors, TV, mini-fridge and basic wet bathroom with hot water. Closer to reception, superior rooms are larger and set in ugly buildings with oversized cement “logs” for railings. When we asked about the fan rooms that we weren’t told about but noticed on our own, the guy said that we couldn’t see them because they were being cleaned. There is a small swimming pool and the barbecue buffet dinners are great. The Thai manager has an eccentric (some would say rude) personality, and his orange-clad staff really just goes through the motions. If you end up settling on Viewpoint, pay no attention to the rack rates on the resort’s website and either walk in or book through Agoda.
