10 Best Hotels in Railay Beach

Where to stay in Railay Beach?

Railay Beach offers a range of accommodations, with the majority of top-rated hotels in Railay Beach situated along the sandy shoreline of Railay, providing easy access to the beach. Several hotels are available on the mangrove side, which may appear less attractive but are actually within a short walking distance from the beach. It’s advisable to plan when planning a stay on Railay Beach, especially during peak seasons (December to February), due to limited availability and the popularity of this breathtaking destination known for its stunning coastal scenery and towering cliffs.
