On the island of Raya Yai, 19km off the coast of Phuket, is this beachfront resort set amongst 75 acres of gardens and palm trees. Known for its clear blue water, the island obviously offers excellent diving, snorkeling, and you can simply laze on the powder white beach. Guests also have the option of going hiking, fishing, and horseback riding. The rooms and the resort itself is a blend of Thai-styled design with modern amenities. Racha Island Resort is an excellent choice in this hidden gem of an island.
