“Perfect day of relaxation and fantastic service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

We spent the day at Buba Pools and Buba Nest after a recommendation. From the moment we arrived we knew that we'd be looked after. The staff we all extremely helpful, attentive but did not crowd you. The infinity pool is wonderful. The food though expensive is very good.

We had reservations at Baba Nest, the sundowner bar which has 360 degree views of Phuket. It is surrounded by an infinity pool and breathtakingly beautiful. The staff up here were happy to take photos and were again polite and helpful.

We had dinner back at Buba Pools and thoroughly enjoyed it.

If you are looking for some luxury and a beautiful setting this is definitely the place to come.

“Stylish and romantic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

We arrived here for a sunset drink. The best places were booked already (we had no reservation), but we checked with the staff and found that we have about one hour before that, so the staff was nice and they let us use those small cozy seats close to the edge for one hour.
Cocktail list has a great selection, both cocktails and wines and cocktails were done perfectly.
The view is just terrific, "a million dollar view".
Unfortunately, I forgot the staff name who took care about us, but the guy was just charming.
He has short hair and wears glasses and his name has 4 letters, as far as I remember. Want to say thanks to him, as he is an asset!

“Spectacularly romantic setting; dining in the infinity pool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

There are four tables surrounded by infinity pools, overlooking Panwa Bay; if you want a very romantic date, reserve on of the four tables and you will have one of the most romantic, elegant dinners of your life. The service is quite good and the menu is very eclectic, including Japanese, Italian, Thai, Beef and Fish. We went Thai including Duck Spring rolls, Thai Salad, Tom Kah Khai and Pad Thai, all of which were absolutely excellent with wonderful seasoning and fresh ingredients. Leave room for the desert menu....it's equally as good. They serve an interesting selection of cocktails, including many of there own concoctions. It's upscale, intimate and excellent.....we have experienced many contrasts in dining in Phuket and this lovely spot is the top for romantic, modern taste.

“one of the 'coolest' bars in the world .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

good cocktail list, delicous Nobu style eats, great service ....but its all about loction and and view. Located on the roof on the highest point of the cape panwa peninsula , the view is staggering. 360 degrees of the island of Phuket and the surrounding islands . As you walk out of the 'lift' on the fourth floor , the roof you are greeted by what seems like a large swimming pool with a wooden island in the middle (the bar area) Simple cushions and low tables to maximise the stunning view make you feel as if floating on an infinity pool with the water almost merging with the sea view several hundred feet below. The sunsets are just unbelievable , its wonderful to watch the boats come and go,the squid boats are setting off for the night's fishing as some of the last ferries come in from Islands. Swallows fly low overhead and the swoop below you ...and as the sunsets a few small bats can be seen . Having been lucky to visit many places and many venues in the world this is one of the best , every evening is a different dynamic it terms of clouds, colours etc .
Its is v small and booking is essential. Dont forget your camera, maybe ladies should take a light jacket as there can be a pleasant light breeze .
oh and no 'bling' required !

“Stylish - doesn't seem Phuket”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Best bar in Phuket for service and views. Awarded the same by CNN traveller. Phuket is usually cheap and dirty and sleazy but this place is nice and clean and elegant. Go there and then eat at the Thai restaurant (Soul food) - it won't disappoint you.
