Private Residences by Small Luxury Hotels of the World

Thailand, Phuket The Lighthouse

Striking lighthouse with 360 degree views of Racha Island and the Andaman Sea

The Lighthouse is a superb five floor retreat with private pool, terrace, sundeck and guaranteed spectacular views from the 360 degree observation lounge. Located on Racha Island 12 Nautical miles south of Phuket and accessible only by speedboat, The Lighthouse features three magnificent bedrooms, three bathrooms and large private outdoor area with pool. The interiors are simple yet sumptuous with white walls and fabrics contrasting against the dark solid wood furnishings.  Whilst outside, an outdoor rain shower, underwater pool music and sundeck continue the luxurious feel.


The location of The Lighthouse within sister SLH property The Racha, means that guests can enjoy all the facilities of the resort and retreat back to their private villa. Start the day with fresh coffee and a buffet breakfast in the Earth Café, head for a spot of traditional Thai lunch at the Sunset Beach Restaurant or finish the day with a cocktail watching the sunset in the Lobby Bar or a fine dining meal by the pool at Fire Grill. As well as authentic dining and drinking outlets, the hotel also offers a host of activities for all to enjoy. When staying here, the island really is your playground – hire bikes and explore on two wheels or bring out your competitive side with a game of tennis. For the more adventurous guests pick up an ATV (all-terrain vehicle) and take an off-road look at what the island has to offer. For those looking for a more relaxing break the Anumba spa facilities are on hand ready to really allow you to unwind.

No trip to Racha Island would be complete without experiencing the local world-class diving sites. No matter what level of experience you have diving packages and lessons can be put together to suit all levels – the Racha Diving Centre has a training pool, perfect for complete beginners. On the north of the island are two beautiful bays famous for their deep clear waters and colourful coral formations, great for both snorkelling and scuba diving. Off the east coast of the island is where the best diving can be found – the soft current allows for a gentle drift along sloping rocky surfaces covered with an amazing array of hard corals and the nutrient rich waters draw in schools of tropical fish.
