Welcome to Railay Beach Clubs, Bridge House

Let me state my initial bias to this place. It is without doubt my favorite place on Railay Beach. Tucked away on the far side of Railay Beach, nestled against the limestone cliffs, are the 20 acres which make up a private community of houses. What is so special about this place is that the land has been developed and built on sparsely and subtly. It is as close as it is possible to get to the feeling Railay Beach had 20 years ago. This is not a commercial organisation, but is run by the private individuals who own land or houses in this 20 acre sanctuary. Some of these people rent out their luxurious houses some of the time.

Bridge House at twilight      Bridge house has four wings

Bridge House is one of the biggest of these houses. The house is really three houses connected together with raised walkways and bridges. It was co-designed and built by three friends, each of them designing their own bit. The result is that there are three distinct themes, Thai, Japanese and Western. The house is made entirely of native woods, painstakingly selected and collected by the main architect. He spent a couple of years living in a make shift hut, before he felt he had the right wood, and the right design. Finally he got lucky, and managed to get some of the same crew who had worked on one of the Kings residences to build his dream. The result is to be experienced.

Bridge House Railay Beach  

Bridge house has four wings, two Master wings and two Guest wings, all with private bathrooms and decks. There is also a large, shared, open air dining "Sala" and kitchen. The house can be rented by the wing, or you can rent the whole thing.

 



King likes the place so much that he has made a video- a little cheesy but a nice touch!

 

Guest Wing A

Bridge House-Master Wing A is an open plan bedroom with a living area with an adjoining bathroom. There is a small beverage fridge, hot water kettle, and tea and coffee in Wing A up. From the large open deck there is a view of the sea. There is another cosy sleeping area with a high balcony up in the loft. The extra bedroom  and bathroom is located downstairs with its own patio through the back door. The downstairs room has air conditioning.

Sleeping arrangements: This wing has 1 king bed upstairs and one queen bed downstairs, plus an option to put an extra single bed in the loft.

General details

There is no air conditioning in most of the house, which may be off putting for some. However the house gets a refreshing ocean breeze, particularly in the evening. If you want to stay in secluded luxury, then this really is your best option in Railay. It's the one place I would like to stay most. If you can afford it, I would strongly recommend it.

It should be noted that for each of the wings, the upstairs bedrooms are all great. The "bedroom down" rooms located underneath the bedrooms are not as luxurious and are priced accordingly. These rooms are only available with their upstairs counterparts.
