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.

I have been remiss in not reviewing our one week stay at Rising Sun Resort in early February 2013 sooner. From the moment we were met at the airport by our driver, we were treated to hospitality at its very best. The warm welcome, the magnificent three bedroom villa, beautifully decorated with our own infinity pool , the divine restaurants... More

I would say that I was totally impressed by RS and I have never experienced anything similar before. At the start I was worried that the hotel might be too old to look good, the location might be inconvenient, there was few reviews from the web site. However all doubts were gone completely after I arrived. About villa:The hotel rooms... More

What a wonderful place. We really enjoyed our stay even if it was too short ( 3 days ). We could have stayed for much longer. Our villa was really nice and quiet which is what we wanted. The views are great and we just relaxed our days away. The food in the hotel was also very good.As was the... More
