West Railay Beach Hotels

Occupying a petite peninsula on Krabi’s sun kissed coast, Railay lures in those looking for one of two things: rock climbing or relaxation. If like most you’re here for the latter, then West Railay Beach is the place to stay. Framed by foliage-fringed limestone cliffs and gilded with bleach blonde sand, it sets a picture perfect scene for beach-based R&R. Accessible only by boat, the resort’s luxurious accommodation and lush surrounds offer indulgence and seclusion in equal measure.

Things to see

The resort’s main stretch of sand, West Railay Beach is the archetypal Thai paradise, where sun worshippers bask on the sand and long-tail boats glide across the warm teal water. Dotted about you’ll find a handful of casual beach restaurants and bar shacks, where you grab a quick bite or cool off with a fruity cocktail. Further south along the peninsula, on the edge of Phra Nang Beach, you’ll find Phra Nang Shrine – dedicated to the princess goddess of the same name. Occupying a small cave, the incense-scented shrine is frequently visited by local fishermen and boaters, who come to leave phallic-shaped offerings to ensure their safety at sea.

Over on the east side of the peninsula you’ll find another natural wonder, the aptly named Diamond Cave. Cutting into the limestone cliff that separates the Railay peninsula from the rest of Krabi, it features dozens of glittering stalagmites and stalactites, giving the whole place an otherworldly atmosphere.

Hotels in West Railay Beach

Whilst there’s only several hotels in West Railay Beach, they certainly aim to please. You can take your pick from glamorous full-service establishments set right on the beachfront, or secluded 5-star villas, boasting designer décor and private pools. The hotels in West Railay Beach are typically set within tropical grounds, and pamper their guests with every amenity under the sun. You can expect on-site restaurants and bar lounges looking out over the glittering sea, as well as outdoor pools, hot tubs, and full-service spas offering everything from massages to beauty treatments. Sand Sea Resort and Railay Village Resort are two of the best options.

Where to stay

For those seeking sun, sand, and sea, West Railay Beach makes the perfect escape. Home to the peninsula’s best stretch of sand and swankiest hotels, its division from the rest of Krabi makes it feel like a world away from home. Whilst the area only offers a handful of places to eat and shop, the hotels in West Railay Beach come packed with amenities, meaning you’ll never have to leave. If you follow paths leading through the lush jungle to the east, you’ll eventually come to East Railay Beach. Lacking the idyllic beach but offering considerably cheaper accommodation, it’s home to the resort’s bare-footed bohemian nightlife.

How to get to West Railay Beach

Situated around 7 kilometres from the town of Krabi, the province’s capital, Krabi International Airport is the region’s main gateway. It serves destinations throughout Asia, including major hubs such as Kuala Lumpur International, Hong Kong International, and Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport – all of which are excellent initial gateways into Asia if you’re coming from further afield. Because the Railay peninsula is separated from the inland by mountains, you’ll have to make the final leg of your journey by boat once you’ve landed. Long-tail boats depart from both Ao Nang and the town of Krabi, with a taxi or shared minibus from the airport to each area taking around 10 and 30 minutes respectively.
