Welcome to Rawai

The region is defined not just by its fine salt-white beaches but also by its lush coastal hills, which rise steeply and tumble into the Andaman Sea forming Laem Phromthep, Phuket’s beautiful southernmost point. These hills are home to pocket neighbourhoods and cul-de-sacs knitted together by just a few roads – though more are being carved into the hills each year and you can almost envision real-estate money chasing away all the seafood grills and tiki bars. Let's hope that's several decades off – or at least one. Even with the growth you can still feel nature, especially on the beach.
