My first experience here. My first impression was terrible. 7 PM on a weekday. My taxi dropped me off at the bottom a steep hill, bags and all. No one was there to help carry the bags up this hill. Finally the security guard came and helped. Once we made it to the stairs, then a bell hop joined in.... More

Unfortunately this place has seen much better times. Lift is essentials to this resort cause it has been built on a hillside. During our 7-days stay the lift has been out of function at least once a day. Umbrellas at the pool look disgusting and some are broken. If someone swims in the pool the water drips on the stairs...

Just got a short trip to Phuket and we had a great time at Phunaka resort and spa. The room was big and comfortable and you just woke up with amazing view of the ocean! Staff were friendly and very helpful. Too bad that it's only 1.5 nights there but definitely going back again:) The pool is a must if... More

Friendly and accommodating staff, spacious rooms, great little infinity pool with an amazing view... .. but! Definitely not a 4 star resort. More a solid 3. Lots of climbing from the resort lobby and restaurant to the furthest rooms - not sure why they put us in the absolute furthest room when the resort seemed only 20% occupied. No ice... More

The service is OK, the beds is horrible as they are to hard. We had a room with jacuzzi, the jacuzzi was dirty when we arrived, a staff came up and clean it but it was still dirty. We didn't use the jacuzzi, I told this to the reception and told them that it was full of gecko lizards and... More

I stayed with my girlfriend in the Phunaka resort for a couple of nights, we scored a very good deal so we took it. The staff was very friendly, rooms were very well decorated, new furniture, an awesome balcony with great view to phuket, and a nice view to the Big Buddha in the mountain. The pool in the hotel...

A very good hotel with very attending personnel. Nice view of the island from our balcony. They have upgraded us free of charge so we received a room with Jacuzzi on our balcony. Free ride to the beach and they have agreements with tour operators for all attractions in the area (at the tourist desk near Hotel Reception). Infinity pool... More

The hotel is very clean and friendly. The only comments I could make are to have a more attentive staff member at the pool bar and may be some extra activities and games on offer. The cooking class the put on is excellent value you might have to ask about it as they do not have signs up all the... More

I'm writing this whilst still staying at this hotel. We hired a car and initially struggled to find the hotel, but once we arrived we were happy. Lovely reception and room clean and spacious. The rooms are cleaned daily and clean towels too. You are also provided with bathrobes, slippers, tea and coffee and towels for the pool and for... More

This hotel is very clean. Beautiful sunset view from the pool and rooms. The breakfast was good. I think it would be difficult for the elderly to stay here because the hotel is build against a hill and you have to climb many steps to reach your room, pool or spa area. The spa was closed during our stay. I... More
