Quiet, tucked away, peaceful retreat”

My family and I stayed in one of the Superior Cottages at Railay Phutawan Resort for 5 nights over the Chinese New Year holiday. Our cottage had plenty of room for two adults + one extra bed for our daughter. The first night our AC wasn't working, but they had it fixed by the next day. Never had any problems in our room after that. (Although, do note that WiFi is pretty hit or miss here!) Basics were provided in the bathroom and one bottle of free water was provided for each person every day of our stay. Our cottage was #1210, right next to the offices and pool area, so we really had no view to speak of. Many of the other cottages have better views, so be sure to request one of those if it matters to you. On the plus side, I think our location spared us some of the bug issues others have mentioned in their reviews! We enjoyed the resort's buffet breakfast each morning and appreciated that it remained open from 7:30am to 11am, for those mornings we wanted to sleep in. (Breakfast is better the earlier you go, though!) The food available stayed mostly the same for our whole stay, but it was hot, tasty, and filling so we didn't mind. Despite going over a holiday, the resort didn't feel particularly crowded and we were always able to find a lounger by the pool when we wanted to go. Speaking of the pool, it's a huge selling point for the resort. The view is incredible, but there is also zero shade there, so going earlier or later in the day is more comfortable. If you're up early enough, sunrise is quite pretty from the pool area or the deck above the resort's offices! It's a pretty good walk to the beaches - Railay West and Phra Nang - and Walking Street where many restaurants are, but the pay-off of being so far from the busy areas is that it's super quiet here. We never heard anything except roosters from our cottage, so sleep quality was great! Be mindful on the path leading past Diamond Cave to the resort, though - the monkeys are always watching and waiting to g

As Railay is more expensive to live at, I do understand that some people prefer to stay at Ao Nang or Krabi. Nevertheless, I would definitely recommend to stay at Railay for a few days. My boyfriend and I went to this Resort at the end of August for two nights (bungalow) and extended our stay to 4 nights, because we absolutely loved it. The Pool and it’s view are so beautiful and I find the location of this resort better than any others resort at Railay (as you can see all of the resorts down at the beaches). It’s surrounded by nature, It’s quiet and you can reach everything by foot. When you walk to the beach you might even meet some monkeys on your way. The Pool and Poolbar-area was open until 10pm, so we enjoyed coming home in the evening having a quip dip and then dinner at the Poolbar, with the most amazing view. The Bungalow was beautiful, we even had a small balkony where we dried our swimwear. The Air con was leaking a tiny bit but that didn’t bother us as it did it’s job properly. The bathroom is not air conditioned by the way, so you have to keep that door shut, as the bathroom is sort of open to the outside the whole time (sounds worse but didn’t bother at all. The ceiling is very high and the roof sits on the walls with a little gap, so the wet air can escape. The resort provided shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in a dispenser in the bathroom. The bed was huge and cozy. We would definitely recommend this resort to people who want to have a relaxed time and wanna go there during low season (because I can’t tell how it’s like there during high season). We spend 1300 Baht per night for the bungalow. We took the longboat from Ao NamMao to Railay East for 100 Baht per Person (every hour at half past). You can walk to the Resort from Railay Pier.

I was SO happy we chose Railay Phutawan as our accommodation for this trip. This was my 4th visit to Railay but the first time I stayed away from the main "strip" areas. I was incredibly happy we stayed above it all as now I would never have it any other way! The views from the resort were gorgeous and even with cloudy weather, we were so relaxed spending time up at the resort reading, napping, swimming, playing games, and enjoying the bar and restaurant. It truly saved our vacation having this great atmosphere and views to look forward to each day. The breakfast had good options and the restaurant on site made great dinners and drinks (lychee mojito was a favorite!). The beds in our room were VERY comfortable and the room had everything we needed. On top of it all, the staff was so sweet and friendly. I don't think I'll tell anyone visiting Railay to stay anywhere else. For the view alone, you won't regret your choice.

Views, pool and staff

For the price I paid, Railay Phutawan Resort was amazing value. Despite being a bit further up from the East beach shore, I loved it as it meant it was tucked away and surrounded by amazing views - including from my room which was a beautiful surprise. The pool is absolutely amazing and the staff were super helpful all throughout my stay. They organised for me to be picked up from the pier by their tractor and were great with any of my questions. Railay is pretty small so everything is within easy walking distance and it was the perfect place to relax after spending my days climbing. Thanks!

Great stay”

We really enjoyed our stay at Phutawan. It is in the nicest part of East railay in our opinion. Not crowded, the resort was higher up and overlooked the bay, no smells or piled up trash. Some of the places we almost booked were nice, but neighbored on either side by grossness. Not Phutawan! Gorgeous misty jungle on one side and a small rock climbing wall and hut on the other side. As climbers, it was really fun to watch people climb from our pool. And the pool!!! It was awesome. Infinity pool with a gorgeous view. Only downside was no shade- we would recommend they pop up a few umbrellas to make it perfect. Free breakfast, always a great thing. Overall very clean...We spotted one cockroach in our room which was quickly smashed, but otherwise very clean and not buggy. Hard to be completely bug free when everything is open-air outside of the rooms. We don't blame them for the single visitor we had. This place is a great value for the price. If we ever go back to railay we would stay here (especially knowing we would breathe clean mountain air and look at the jungle)...not a smelly alleyway behind a hotel like so many others.

Beautiful and peaceful spot”

Phutawan was awesome. The rooms were spacious and modernly decorated. We had the seaview room with a balcony that overlooked the pool, sea and rock climbers on the nearby cliff. Really stunning view. The breakfasts were tasty with variety. But they could improve their coffee. We also enjoyed dinner in the evenings at the restaurant which was great. The walk into the west beach was about 10 min but we looked forward to some exercise. They also have a shuttle which takes people to the beach. The resort was quiet, peaceful and so relaxing which was just what we needed. The staff were also friendly. All in all the resort was great and Railay is defs worth checking out.

Before I choose to stay at Railay Phutawan I read many reviews mentioned about distance from pier to resort, but actually It's not that far!! Compare to what you will experience from this place. I love everything. Scenic view, room, food and great staff. Surely I will choose this place for my next stay in Railay.

Amazing views in the jungle”

Railay Phutawan was an amazing stay for us. Just a 5-10minute walk from the bars/restaurants in Railay, the place has a stunning view from the pool and is unique from the beach resorts with tons of people. Rooms were clean, staff friendly and good food and drinks. We had breakfast every morning because it was included - which was decent and had many options - but probably wouldn't pay the 250/300THB pp if it wasn't included in our booking.

Fabulous, unique views, friendly staff, lots of breeze

The resort is nestled up against the limestone cliffs with a beautiful view of the ocean. The uphill walk is worth the natural beauty you will see when you look in any direction. Railay Phutawan is quiet and peaceful- just far enough from the commercial strips. The staff has the right mix of professionalism and friendliness. Very nice wood flooring and paneling in the rooms.

The place to be in Railay! ”

My boyfriend and I loved our stay at Phutawan. It was a little walk up an incline but not bad at all and a pretty delightful workout. So worth it once you get to the top! The staff greeted us with fruit juice and immediately led us to our room. We had an ocean view room which was lovely and very clean. The view was amazing as well. The grounds are kept very clean, no trash anywhere. The restaurant at the resort was decent, but we went down into the town to eat most meals. We lounged at the infinity pool and also walked to Railay west beach which took less than 10 minutes. Overall a great stay! We were sad to leave!

We were given a coupon upon arrival for a free order of spring rolls and a discount on dinner, so we ate in the hotel restaurant and were impressed with the food. Breakfast was also great, as were drinks by the pool. The pool, I would add, is incredible--nicely kept with an amazing view. The hill up to the hotel might be challenging with small children or mobility challenges, but the hotel has a shuttle that could help! We would recommend Phutawan!

Beautiful location”

The resort is located in the hills overlooking Railay East beach. It is a few minutes walk from the beach and the restaurants and tour businesses on the beachfront. It is about a 15 minute walk from West Railay beach. The view from my windows was of the surrounding green mountains, so it is a very peaceful setting. The view from the resort pool is also fantastic. The resort and the rooms are clean and well kept. My only complaint would be that the bathroom had a few issues, but overall, it was a tremendous experience in a beautiful location. One morning I took the hike over the hill to the Tonsai beach. The forest path is just beside the resort and is easy to follow. The hike is not strenuous and takes about 45 minutes from the resort to Tonsai. It is a beautiful hike, but there are no houses along the way until arriving at the resorts up the hill from Tonsai. I highly recommend this resort to people traveling to Railay.

Wonderful hotel at absolutely amazing location”

With it's uphill location and stunning views Phutawan truly is a paradise of Railay. It is a short and very scenic walk away from Railay West and East beaches . In our superior cottage we felt amazingly close to nature with views to tropical forest and stunning Avatar mountains from all the windows . The location and views from the pool are amazing, the interior of the cottage is lovely, the service and breakfast are good. The best hotel I have ever stayed in Thailand and I would certainly go back again !

Great bungalow, friendly staff. ”

Large bungalow, quiet location, nice bathroom.

We loved our stay in Railay. The Phutawan bungalow was a great home base for us. The scenery was absolutely beautiful. We stayed in the Tawasen Cottage and were impressed with the large room and bathroom. We had a lovely deck and the decor was charming. We did see a cockroach in our bathroom one night and we decided that when you are in the landscape you are in, it is inevitable. Our solution was to knock on the bathroom door before entering... We never saw anything again! The location is a bit away from everything, but it is a small area, so not to worry. Great view from the restaurant!

You just have to go...and you won't regret”

The resort is in a unique location, I personally think it is even better than in pictures. The pool area is amazing, you see the sea from far and you are sorrounded by astonishing rocks and trees (with monkeys :-) I can't say the room was anything special, but the resort makes all the difference. Staff is so nice, they offer a shuttle service every hour to go to both Railay East or West, but actually the walk is also very pleasant. Breakfast is on a beautiful terrace and the food is very nice. The muesli seemed homemade and with a lot of peanuts, yummie. We also enjoyed the restaurant in the evening, the tables are on a terrace and the atmosphere is so romantic, not to mention that the food itself is definetely above average and even if the price is slightly higher, it is definitely worth it. an't reccomend this place more. Also, Railay is an amazing spot you don't want to miss when in this area of Thailand.

Best of both, beach and mountains”

There are many places to stay that are right on the beach in Railay, this might not be one of them but in my opinion Phutawan resort has the most amazing scenery of them all. Located in the middle of lush green mountains with a pool and a bar overlooking the trees, cliff face and ocean down below. Enjoy a cocktail in the pool while watching the sun set over the ocean

STAY HERE!! ”

We stayed for 5 nights (Dec 2017) in an Ocean view room (room 2301). This is the place you want to stay (unless you are staying in an ocean view at the Rayavadee for 6 times the price) ! We extensively explored all of the hotels and beaches during our time here, and we are so glad we stayed here! - far from the busy west and east beaches full of day trippers, but not too far like some hotels (10 min walk or 5 min free shuttle) - pool and resort was quiet - panoramic views of west beach, cliffs and jungle from room and pool (from everywhere on resort) - staff was most helpful (best staff in our 3 weeks in Thailand) - surprised my boyfriend with a cake (free of charge) for his birthday - far away from the garbage collection boat docked at East Railay (east beach smelled like garbage!!!!!) I asked for someone to meet us at our longtail arrival, and they not only provided a FREE shuttle, but also carried our heavy luggage for the 5 min walk from the west beach boat to the shuttle.

Out of town and away from day trippers”

We arrived via ferry from Koh Lanta, had to be transferred to a longboat for a shore landing, the resort is quite a walk up a hill, they did send a motorized cart to help out,(no motorized vehicles allowed in the west end) so we had to drag suitcases through the village without direction. On the way we ran into another couple who said that they were staying at our resort, they said the trouble was worth it, and it was, Phutawan is spectacular! The views are unmatched and we felt like we were in the middle of the jungle surrounded by the majestic mountain spires. Staff was friendly and accommodating, food was good, and the pool provic=des amazing views, we would come back without hesitation, but better prepared for the journey there.

Perfect place with a fabulous view”

This resort is awesome. I've stayed at another resort at Railay before which was quite nice, but I read all the reviews for this hotel and put out a little more money for the nice view. Do it. Beautiful new rooms with an amazing view of sunrise. Our bathrooms did have some draining problems in the shower, but that's not uncommon in the area. Breakfast had great variety. Instant coffe though. No safe in the room. Travelers have varying opinions about those anyway. Also, book airport transfer with the hotel. It saves you lugging your bags up a pretty intense incline. It's worth the money, I think, not to lug a suitcase up a hill.
