Rawai Holiday Villas and Apartments
Rawai lies on the southern end of Phuket and is easily accessible from Chalong Circle to the north and only a few kilometres from Nai Harn to the west. The area of Rawai spreads out far from its beach and encompasses a large array of restaurants, bars, hotels and shops. The beach at Rawai is more of a working place than a typical tourist beach – local fishermen setting out daily for a fresh catch and long-tail and speed boats on the ready to ferry customers to nearby islands.
The restaurants and bars that line the seafront offer some excellent views over this calm bay; one of the more popular ones being Nikitas Beach Restaurant directly on the beach where you can enjoy your meal with your feet in the sand and lap up the views.
Rawai has a lot to offer with an abundance of small local restaurants offering excellent food at reasonable prices to the more up market establishments to dine in style. There is a thriving nightlife in Rawai with many small bars scattered around the area and the Laguna Nightclub just down from Rawai Pier that parties on until the early hours.
One of the major attractions in Rawai is the Phromthep Cape viewpoint that commands spectacular views across the Andaman Sea and the south east of Phuket. The lighthouse situated there also has a fascinating display of historical maritime memorabilia. Another popular attraction in Rawai is the Seashell Museum that houses thousands of rare seashells from around the world, many of which are highly valuable collectible items
