The Racha, Thailand’s highly acclaimed eco-luxe island resort, is rolling out the red carpet for the global medical community with an extraordinary ‘Thank You Healthcare Heroes’ accommodation package.
From 1st July 2020 – 30th November 2021*, healthcare staff and their families can enjoy an unprecedented
70% discount off Best Available Rate for stays at The Racha. Accommodation start from only B2,520+++ per night. In addition, guests will also be treated to a ‘Thank You’ dinner for two at the highly acclaimed Fire
Grill or oceanfront Sunset Restaurant, with a complimentary bottle of wine. Round-trip speedboat transfers will also be on the house.
Says Devan Bhaskaran, General Manager of The Racha, “We rarely have the opportunity to thank our heroes. Now here’s our chance. The covid-19 pandemic has affected everyone but none more than the medical community. The past months, medical staff have worked tirelessly through multiple shifts and uncertain conditions, delivering care to those who need them. It is our privilege now to reciprocate. We open our hearts and our home, The Racha to them and their families. What better way to restore and rejuvenate than at The Racha, World Luxury Hotel Award’s – Asia’s 2019 Luxury Island Resort Winner and Luxury Lifestyle Awards 2020 – Best Luxury Boutique Hotel in Phuket, Thailand?
Pared-down and eco-chic, The Racha, a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, resides by a powder- soft white sand bay with azure waters in one of the Andaman Sea’s most beautiful islands. Guests arriving at Phuket airport are whisked away in a Mercedes limousine to the newly expanded Racha Chalong Lounge for check-in. Then it’s onboard one of the resort’s speedboats and a 30-minute ride to the tiny island of Racha Yai.
Adds Devan, “At The Racha, we go to extraordinary lengths to keep our guests, employees and the community safe. The resort has instituted ‘We Lead. We Care’ – the highest standards of health and security protocols, as mandated by the WHO and Thai government.”
At The Racha, physical distancing is easy. Spread over 20 acres of verdant tropical grounds, there’s plenty of room to relax and play. Built in low-rise harmony with the environment, 85 recently renovated serene villas of eight category types provide for every creature comfort. Pool Villa guests luxuriate in ozonated, (not chlorinated), yet certified covid-free safe water – gentle on the skin and easy on the environment.
The Racha serves up unique culinary experiences in its three signature restaurants. The contemporary
Earth Cafe hosts an expansive breakfast complete with sparkling wine. At Fire Grill, a recent Winner in the
2019 World Luxury Restaurant Awards for Mediterranean Cuisine in Asia, guests dine indoors or under the stars. The casual, beachfront Sunset Restaurant is the place to go for the catch of the day. Table distancing will be practiced throughout the dining outlets. Guests desiring more privacy can opt for Room Service, In- Villa Barbeque (complete with private chef) or indulge with Ultimate Dining – a bespoke culinary experience in a private and stunning location.
Fresh greens are delivered daily to all dining establishments from the resort’s Hydroponic Farm. The Lobby
Bar provides stunning sunsets daily and The Ice Bar is the place for late-night live music.
The five-star Racha Dive Center provides personalized scuba instruction and trips to the Andaman Sea’s most captivating sites. The Water Sports Center assists guests with guided land and sea exploration, sports and craft classes.
Other resort facilities include three ozonated pools with underwater music, library, tennis and basketball courts, and a beach club.
