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

My family stayed at 2 one-bedroom villas. Before our stay, I read all of the reviews of RSR and it raised my expectation to very high level. Right after we arrived at the airport, we figure out that our vacation will be just as expected. Our driver was very gentle and so helpful, Mr/Mrs Wipa provided us with all kind... More

My Husband and I stayed here in August. We were excited to be returning to Rising Sun, after a fantastic stay last year. Wipa, Methee and staff are as helpful as always – nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast served in the villa was wonderful, fresh and tasty. Having been to Phuket previously, were we keen to stay in and... More

Really enjoyed our 4 night stay at RSR in August 2013. Two adults and 2 teenagers can easily stay at 1 bed room villa, we did have extra beds for the kids and there was ample room. The driver Sukin, the housekeeper No, the hostess Blah and the owner Wipa all made us feel very much at home and suggested... More

The Rising Sun Residence is nothing less than the best place to stay in Phuket, the staff are extremely enthusiastic and friendly. Not only are the villas very clean they had a lovely view of the Chalong Bay. Absolutely Stunning. The atmosphere at the villas was really calm and relaxing and it’s such a fantastic place to go if you... More
