The Racha Chalong Lounge
When we arrived we were pleasantly greeted by one of the staff members from The Racha who picked us up at the airport with the latest Mercedes E-class limousine and took us to the Racha Chalong Lounge. The drive was about 50 minutes long. From the lounge to the island it takes an approximately 40-minute ride with a speedboat but before our departure, we waited in a lounge where we were offered small bites, tea, and coffee. It’s really nice that you can freshen up before the departure and enjoy many complimentary amenities like welcome drink, wi-fi, reading material, and light snacks.
There are 85 chic villas dotted around the lush gardens. You will also have access to the beautiful beach, restaurants and bars, ice cream place and spa area with fitness, yoga place, and massage rooms. Everything is perfectly designed. They are also building new kids place for the youngest.
The breakfast at the Racha Resort is served at the Earth Café where you can enjoy indoor or outdoor dining. It has many variations from Thai, Chinese or western style. So, there are plenty of options to choose from, like pan-fried dishes, fresh vegetables, cereals, freshly squeezed fruit, pastries and more… You can also get various types of eggs and omelets at the egg station freshly cooked.
The second restaurant is called The Sunset Restaurant and it is a perfect place to enjoy the sunset while you have a drink or two. In the evening there is a wonderful seafood barbeque.
