Escape to paradise on a small tropical island near Phuket
The Racha, Thailand’s premier deluxe island hideaway, is set on a pristine beach on Racha Island; only 12 miles south of Phuket and 35 minutes by speed boat from Phuket’s Chalong Bay. The resort features 85 luxurious villas and strives to be recognised as a leader in responsible and environmentally sustainable tourism. The island is known for its natural beauty and is since long known for its excellent corals and marine life.
Indulge mind, body and spirit at The Racha – an eco-luxury beach resort fringed by the powdery sands of Batok Bay. By day you can learn everything from Thai cookery and craft making to diving in the Andaman. While evenings are made for cocktails and stargazing, after dinner in one of the resort’s three signature restaurants. With 85 private retreats dotted across twenty acres of lush grounds, The Racha is the ultimate get-away-from-it-all escape.
Each villa blends minimalist elegance with the ultimate in creature comforts – and celebrates the tropical setting. There are private terraces, open-air rain showers and outdoor daybeds to make the most of the laid-back ambience. Many have their own ozonated infinity-edge or plunge pool – complete with music that’s piped-in to enjoy even when you’re in the water. Indoors, you’ll find a crisp, pure white palette alongside rich wood furniture, and spacious rooms featuring plenty of modern touches. For sheer indulgence, ask for the Lighthouse, a separate five-story pool retreat with panoramic island views and its own private pool.
When it’s time to get out and explore, the best of the island’s treasures are right on your doorstep. You could arrange a tailor-made scuba class and tour, discovering the colourful world beneath the Andaman. Or head off the verdant grounds, to nature – on a hiking, kayaking or mountain-biking trip. For something a little more adrenalin-filled, try an ATV ride across the countryside. Then return to The Racha for an afternoon of pampering at the world-acclaimed Anumba Spa, complete with an ocean-facing gym and OM Studio.
