The hotel is within a beautiful setting, room was really clean and the staff were extremely friendly.
The walk to the hotel is around 15 a minute walk and is very steep and a lot of steps as we were in the highest bungalow.
We like the designs of the little hut/chalet over looking from the tree tops onto the sea, really nice bathroom with rain shower & bathtub. Great assortment of amenities that is provided to us such as umbrellas, beach mats, beach bag & towels, safe, bottle openers & wine glasses. The pool over looking the sea was amazing. It was also thoughtful for the staff to serve cold towels & passion fruit drinks during check in after the crazy walk from the pier to the resort.
The location of the hotel is very secluded so beware if you're not prepared to walk at least 20mins from the Railey East Pier with your heavy luggage, it is also difficulty to get back after dark since you need to walk through the narrow path along the seaside. Since the resort is situated at a hilltop, it can get quite tiresome to walk up the hills to get to your room, we were lucky enough to get one that was closer to the bottom of the resort, but heard from other guests their rooms were all the way on the hill top and it was difficult for them walk up & down. So do request for a room near the bottom of the hill if possible. The shuttle boats to the Riley East Pier is not very frequent and at odd hours making it difficult for us to use this facilities even though its provided. We were really disappointed that the resort does not provide a shower room for guest who already check out despite it being a beach resort. We been to many beach resorts and there are often some sort of shower room for guests to clean up after a day at the pool or beach. Instead we were told to shower at the pool side's shower in-front of other guests that are enjoying their day. This was really off putting for us as we felt its inappropriate for us to shower in front of guests. Please provided a proper shower room for guest next time.
Top value for money!
Food is not good and expensive
Great room (hut) with the best view, looking out at the sea! Very clean and comfortable space. It was everything we could ask for (we didn’t want to leave our hut, nr 10!). The breakfast consisted of plenty of things to choose from. The pool was great. In the afternoon even some monkeys came to visit us at the pool and eat some fruits from the trees. Very relaxing place, would definitely recommend! (Just a tip: the huts are located in de mountains so we had to climb quite some stairs to get to our hut. This was no problem, for we could use some extra exercise after laying at the pool/beach all day ;). However, if you’re having trouble walking, ask a room at the bottom of the hillside.)
The only thing that we didn’t like was seeing that you recommend elephant trekking tours. We saw the folders containing these trips at the reception. Without the promotion of elephant riding tours, you would have gotten a ten out of ten!
Very spacious and clean villas well equipped. Staff in the restaurant and at pool very friendly. Nicely located outside the hectic of Railay Beach.
Staff at reception sometimes seemed a bit disorientated (different prices given on trips and transfers depending on whom you spoke to) and could have been more friendly (e.g. no one asked about our stay when checking-out). Steep way up to the villas.
When you stay at Railay Great View Resort in Krabi, you'll be near the bay, just steps from East Railay Beach and 5 minutes by foot from Princess Lagoon. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services and a 24-hour front desk. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available on request).
