The headland of Laem Phra Nang is home to East and West Railay and the exquisite Phra Nang beach. East Railay is popular with the rock-climbing and backpacking community whereas West Railay and Phra Nang tend to have much broader appeal. The topography of the headland means it is only accessible by boat with regular long-tail boat services operating from Ao Nang and Krabi Town.
Railay Princess Resort & Spa
It’s just a few minutes walk to the beach from any of the deluxe or superior rooms at the Railay Princess. There is a long-tail boat service to nearby Ao Nang (10-15 minutes) and the hotel can arrange island tours and excursions.
The world-renowned Rayavadee regularly features in lists of the top hotels in the world. Unashamed luxury and exquisite service make staying here a delight.
Sand Sea Resort
The Sand Sea offers decent value for money and an excellent location on beautiful West Railay beach. 68 rooms.
East Railay beach lacks the beautiful white sandy stretches of West Railay and Phra Nang, but both these other beaches are easily accessible from the 28 villas at Sunrise Tropical.
