Hotels in Railay
Railay is the name of a mainland peninsula just south of Ao Nang, but, as three of its sides are surrounded by the sea and it is backed by a range of spectacular limestone cliffs that cuts it off from all roads, it has the feel of a real island. Almost every square metre of habitable land has been developed, though the buildings are all low-rise, low density and, for the most part, tastefully designed.
As Railay is so small – crossing from one side to the other takes less than 10 minutes, all accommodation can be classed as being close to the beach.
West Railay (sometimes known as Sunset Beach) is where you will find most of the big resorts offering high quality accommodation.
East Railay (Sunrise Beach) has the least attractive beach of the three.
Phra Nang Bay is on the southernmost tip of Railay and, as the best beach on the peninsula, is where most people (including daytrippers from Ao Nang and Krabi) spend their days.
The resort is entirely surrounded by limestone cliffs and only accessible by boat. We offer you a choice of accommodations, Thai and Western food restaurant and friendly service. Also available are inexpensive boat trips to many offshore islands including the amazing Pee-Pee Islands. Swimming snorkelling exploring caves and mountains and more in a setting which must be seen to be believed.
Sand Sea Resort is perfectly located bang in the middle of the spectacular west Railay beach. It’s a well-maintained resort, with all its pretty, individual bungalows spread out over a large tropical garden filled with flowers and exotic leaves.
