Found this hotel accidently. Didn't read any reviews before.
We came there after couple of dynamic days in Babgkok. It's a pity the hotel is a bit far from Phuket airport, but the road is good, though if you want to visit the town during your stay, be ready to pay some extra money for an authorised car service of the resort, or try to negotiate with taxi drivers just at the opposite side of the street :)
From the 1st steps in the lobby we were just amazed - truly stunnign view of Andaman sea, really warm welcome from staff with welcome drinks.
Hotel was so tiny - I guess occupancy was really low... Then I knew that it has been opened just 20 days ago! I was really surprised!
We got a very nice room with the view of the terrace & pool & beach at the same time. Undoubtedly - everything is new! It's such a pleasure to use all the facilities! The room itself wasn't small, big enough to fit 2 almost king size beds & sort of working area with the desk & sofa. Also - the balcony is sooo nice!
Hotel's beach is good - long enough & clean, but unfortunately we came in a low season, so the sea was about 100 meters away in the evening, but in the morning it was OK. Anyway we preferred to swim in a pool. There are 2 pools - interesting enough that the water in 1 of them in salty, but in the another - not. There were no problems with sunbeds, cuz as I said before - hotel was half-empty.
As for outlets - nice lobby bar with selection of cocktails, really good all-day dining restaurant Mosaic, great Italian restaurant.
Gym seems to be good as well, but we didn’t have any chance to use it – our stay was too short & we were too lazy to do any exercises
Well, long story short – this is an excellent hotel! If I would ever come back to Phuket, I’ll stay there again. Thanks to all hotel’s staff, BTW
I know that till September they have special promotions for their rates, so hurry up & visit it. I believe you’ll like it.
