This was our second visit- the first being 5 years ago. I was a little worried when we booked that it wouldn't be the same after Methee and Wipa the previous owners left but it was still incredible. We stayed for 10 nights with our 8 year old in a one bedroom villa and unbelievably we had the whole place... More

The accommodation is lovely, however, the hotel is pretty far up a hill with very little nearby. Any activity will require getting a taxi or driver and they are shamelessly expensive around here, particularly the ones arranged by the hotel. Tip: Coming back to the Rising Sun, taxi drivers will find this hotel hard to find. Take the name on... More

All other holidays became ordinary after staying at the Rising Sun Residence. We had a fantastic time (two adults, one young child and a baby). The owners and staff made us feel like honoured guests for the entire time. They were all so warm and lovely. The villa (one of 5 around the main pool) was quirky but clean and... More

We stayed the last week of October. From the pick-up at the airport the holiday was a breeze. Wipa and her staff gave us a very warm welcome, ascertained the preferences for our holiday, recommended and booked restaurants and shows for us. Our driver was considerate, attentive, accommodating and always pointed out places we had no knowledge of en route,... More

Excellent place to stay on Phuket. Concept is full-service home from home in a peaceful location, up a hill, set wellback from the major roads. We stayed on a one-bedroom villa, part of a cluster of five villas around the main pool. The villa was immaculate and in great condition, the pool was very well maintained. Breakfast was served in...

We stayed at Rising Sun in a 3 bedroom pool villa as a family with children, ages 17, 14 and 12 April 11 - 18, 2014 and really enjoyed our stay. We had planned on taking a diving course with Aussie Divers (separate review) during that time and were very happy to find out that the diving boats all left... More

Staff is reliable, rooms clean, and ratio quality cost is absolutely good. Only minor negative aspects were location (always need the car to move and quite a lot of time is lost) and our driver (reliable and good in driving) spoke a very poor English, making comunication difficult.

It was a pleasant and nice stay here. The hospitality was awesome. Our ville was neat and clean. The view from our room was magnification. Hotel driver received us from the airport and starting from there, the hospitality was great.
