Railay Village Resort has an incredible location, facing the beach and entirely surrounded by limestone cliffs and dense jungle. It is only accessible by boat, which makes it both wonderfully isolated and kind of hard to reach. Luckily, the hotel arranges airport pickup with a longtail boat transfer for 1,600 THB, and can also arrange day trips for island or beach hopping.
The gay-friendly hotel is one of four resorts located directly on Railay Beach, a laid-back but fun area filled with small restaurants, bars, and shops. These keep things interesting, especially at night – don’t expect any of the neon-lit, go-go-bar-filled nightlife of other Thai resort towns, but there is a nice low-key vibe. Railay Village Resort is quite popular with a gay crowd, so you have a good chance of meeting other guys around here.
The resort is decorated in a traditional Thai style, with plenty of natural materials in neutral tones. All of the rooms are spacious, especially the Family Suite which houses four people in two separate rooms. The Jacuzzi room is great for romantic stays, as is the lovely Honeymoon Suite.
There are two swimming pools, including a very large one, so the poolside is never crowded. The resort has several dining options, however, it is worth pointing out that it is a dry resort, meaning it serves no alcohol. There are shops and bars nearby if you need a drink, and the hotel is more than happy for you to bring your own.
