There aren’t many bad things that we can say about Sand Sea, but it’s not the most memorable resort on Railay either.

Photo of Sand Sea Resort
The cheapest detached superior bungalows with green tin roofs overlook an old but large swimming pool at the centre of the property. These are clean and come with utilitarian white tile floors, dated wood furniture, generic paintings of beach scenes, straightforward wet bathrooms, TVs, mini-fridges, safes, coffee/tea facilities and porches. The next step up are the deluxe bungalows that actually come in two-floor buildings clustered close together, with one room stacked atop another. At time of writing they had recently finished several more buildings further back, closer to Railay East, each with four modern rooms that could use some decor beyond the randomly placed black lights and colourful pillows on the daybeds. Still, these are immaculate and equipped with all new furnishings and appliances. Bagging you sea views and within steps of the second pool that fronts Railay West beach, the junior suites aren’t bad honeymooning material. A straightforward receptionist offered us a 25% discount on one of the newer rooms. If you’re already looking at spending this much cash, consider shelling out for a room at Railay Village, which is an all-round superior resort. If your decision comes down to Sand Sea and the not-as-well-kept Railay Bay Resort next door, go with Sand Sea -- and poke around online for deals.
