Our property

The Railei Beach Club (RBC) is a seafront community of private homes directly on Railay Beach West, one of the most breathtaking beaches in the world, adorned by towering pillars of karstic limestone.

With 24 private homes and 9 guest suites, RBC offers a variety of options for your stay, all nestled in a tropical paradise sprawling over 7 hectares (17 acres). Our homes showcase traditional Thai design elements while boasting their own unique characteristics, varying in amenities and size from 1-5 bedrooms accommodating up to 8 guests.

We offer a harmonious blend of comfort, style, and simplicity in an eco-friendly setting with spectacular nature and wildlife. Choose from a quaint retreat for a romantic getaway or indulge in our more luxurious and spacious havens with air-conditioned rooms and large terraces for gatherings of friends and family. Basic rooms with private bathrooms are also available at our beachfront Club House.

Whether you indulge in an accommodation that is seafront or tucked under the magnificent cliffs, all are a short stroll away on sandy footpaths from beautiful Railay Beach with plenty of open space and privacy. We have preserved much common land for wildlife habitat, and each house sits on its own large landscaped plot for privacy.

Join our own cozy beachfront sunset bar to watch the ever changing sky color, as the sun sinks behind the island of Koh Yao across the sea. It’s a perfect setting to unwind and connect with our members and fellow travelers. Enhance your experience with a massage in the privacy of your home or delight in the flavors of Thailand by letting us arrange for one of our private Thai Chefs to prepare dinner in your home for an unforgettable evening. RBC will also serve as a hub for you to explore the water wonders of the Phang Nga Bay and its myriad of spectacular islands and islets.

On the Railay headland away from road traffic, yet with many nearby restaurants and shops along the beach and in an adjacent walking street, the journey to Railay is an adventure in itself. We can arrange your transfer by air-conditioned van for a seamless arrival with a 20-minute scenic ride on our private longtail boat.

Discover the allure of our exceptional and historical community, where the beauty of Railay Beach and the warmth of Thai hospitality come together to create cherished memories that will last a lifetime.

Our Story

It was two explorers with an interest in nature who found “The Beach” – Railay Beach West – back in 1985. They realized that this would be an eminent place to contemplate life and what is more, they also realized it could easily be a lonesome place as there was not a single dwelling on either side of the headland.

So, they set out with a few friends with whom one could shoot the breeze at sunset. Hence, like-minded souls among their friends were offered a slice of paradise, and a “Club House” was built to accommodate those who had not yet built their own.

Homes were constructed by a colorful character named Chang Thai, and in those days, quality wood was still available. The hippie community of world travelers had also discovered the beauty of the place and a few simple but terrific restaurants sprang up along the beach.

Over time, the character of Railay has, of course, evolved. Everybody wants development, but nobody wants change. We see more tourists and hear more boats, but we have better comfort, services, some fancier restaurants and an airport.

To many, Railei Beach Club (RBC) hasn’t changed much in 40 years and has preserved its spirit, beautiful nature, wildlife, huge open space and privacy. RBC has hosted distinguished and discerning travelers from all over the world. People come here to enjoy the privacy and spaciousness of our grounds, which remain a wildlife habitat for a rich fauna.

Immerse yourself in this special experience in our true natural setting. We enjoy inviting travelers into our special private homes to share this slice of paradise.
