Booked 2 rooms with pool access for 5 nights and we got the rooms on the higher level with great view overlooking Kata from our pool. Very unique concept as its on a cliff and only both of our rooms shared the same pool. Room was clean, comfy, and cozy, most importantly the king sized bed is comfortable. Really appreciate... More

We stayed in the Hillside on the first day it opened and have been back many times. Usually on our visits to Phuket we are engaging in activities such as sailing and diving, and it's perfect as a base. The rooms look a little Spartan, but they are very comfortable. The staff have got to know us very well and... More

Our 2nd trip to Thailand and also 2nd stay at the Sugar Palm Grand. Clean, comfy spacious rooms, Very nicely tucked away from the busy high street but close enough to get into the fun atmosphere.. Close to Kata Beach and really great restaurants. The staff were so helpful and very friendly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We recently spent 3 days at the beautifully situated Sugar Palm Grand at Kata Beach and enjoyed every second. General Manager Rose and her whole staff - office, bell men, housekeeping - went out of their way to be considerate, very helpful, and responsible, always with a smile. The room was comfortable and beautifully designed with a bonus of a... More

We arrived at this hotel without a reservation but with some correspondence with the hotel via email. When we arrived we asked to see the room, we saw and it was lovely. We paid for two nights, got our keys and realised we had been given another room, of much poorer location and size. We eventually got a refund and... More

Rooms are modern, spacious and with good air conditioning. Location is pretty good and great value for money. The hotel is in a very good location but is on a hill so not much good if you struggle with steep inclines. Kata beach is only a 5 minute walk and Kata Noi beach which is much quieter about a 15...

Just a short walk from the main Kata strip and beach, was recommended this place by the GM of Surf House Phuket. Rooms are comfy, clean and roomy! Aircon is nice and cold! Wifi works well. Location means it is nice and quiet with no disturbance from bars or traffic. They even upgraded me for free when I checked-in so... More

The hotel is on the hill, location is good but access to the hotel is narrow and slope. If you drive by yourself, you need to becarefully drive. Car Park is small so prefer to go to the hotel by taxi or van from the airport. Just walk 2 mins to the beach. Staffs are friendly. Good pool access from... More
