My Recommendations

Image - After Beach
Place
After Beach
Bryant:After a day at kata noi Beach, this is a great place to stop and have some lunch or dinner. There are plenty of things to order from the menu including Thai and western food, the view is amazing especially during sunset or even during the day. If you're having lunch or an early dinner you can stop by the elephants up the road from this restaurant and take pictures with them. The location for the elephants is listed in my guide.

Place
Viking Nature Resort
Bryant:I was lucky enough to spend two nights at this resort, it was amazing. The resort is slightly further away from the main Pier than other hotels but it is only about a 20 minute walk or a 5-minute boat ride back and forth from the hotel to the main shopping area. We had an absolutely amazing time, it felt very special being there. We arrived on a long tail boat on to the private beach for the resort, the water was crystal clear blue. The resort is very beautiful, it is a local Thai style resort but upgraded with all modern-day amenities. The best room to book is the standard room if you're looking to save money, I do not recommend the traditional room as it is very basic without air conditioning. The standard room is beautiful and does not cost a lot more than the traditional room. The food is very good and not very expensive, the staff are great and with good whether it is an absolute slice of paradise. I highly recommend it to anyone, let them know I sent you! 🙂

Ko Racha Yai
Bryant:I just got back October 19th 2019 from the Raya island tour oh, it was a great time and a beautiful island. This was definitely worth the money oh, it was only 30 minutes by speed boat to the island. There was a gorgeous Beach amazing blue water and snorkeling for the guests. Lunch was included and snorkeling gear was free to use for the rest of the day. The only problem was the amount of tourists on the beach, we arrived in the morning and as the day went on there were more and more tourists which made it a bit crowded. Overall we really enjoyed the trip it's absolutely gorgeous there and very easy to get to, the beach is amazing, the water is beautiful, the snorkeling is pretty fun and beautiful and the lunch was okay too. I recommend this to people who just want a quick getaway from Phuket for a beautiful island.
