From the moment we arrived, we were traeted as if we were the only guests who were there. Nothing was too much trouble for the amazing staff and we even met Mom Tri himself. Food and facilities were amazing. Will certainly go back.

I would say it is the best place I ever stayed. I could save more than $500 but share the same best private beach Kata Noi with couples stayed in Katathani, and I honestly say Kata Noi is the best beach in Phuket.
The room was big and seawiew was great, bathtube and all the accomodations were fantastic and very Thai (all rooms in Mom Tri's got seaview which made the price more attractive).
Breakfast was awesome, and we've got the best dinner in Mom Tri's Kitchen.

Room Tip: Higher the floor, Better the view

My husband and I arrived here for our honeymoon and they upgraded us to a huge suite with a jacuzzi on the terrace. The place is very tranquil and we fell asleep every night hearing the waves crash beneath us. We loved the huge fruit basket with exotic fruits and fresh cakes every afternoon delivered to our room. We arrived late at night and had sandwiches and a salad delivered to us by the staff which was great and thoughtful! The decor in the rooms seems a little outdated. We also had a big problem with Mosquitos. Any time we were on our terrace during the day or walking around the hotel we got bit! The food at breakfast was decent. Overall, great hotel and if you get the summer package promotion it's a really good deal for a nice area.

My husband took me here for 4 nights and two nights at Sala further North for my 34th birthday and we had a stunning time. Superb location and the rooms are so beautifully decorated in local style. We got such a warm welcome and the 'feel' is truly holiday and escape. We couldn't swim due to the red flag but still enjoyed the three pools and walks on the intimate non-crowded beach. The breakfasts were not as five-star as they should have been until Mom-Tri himself showed up then things did a complete 360. We have a few suggestions for improvement and a feedback form should be available but still rate this experience as very good plus half. Our suggestions are that they improve on the detergant type toiletries, change the cheap plastic bin in the bathroom and their soapy-tasting complimentary water in the rooms. They were very sweet to give me a little birthday cake which would have been perfect without the fake cream topping but perhaps they have to use this due to the heat...We experienced a tropical storm and blackout during dinner at Mom Tri's kitchen but it was part of the fun and service and food was six-star so made up for it. The package we had was also great value for money which included a spa experience my husband and I will be talking about for many years to come!

Room Tip: Definitely choose sea-facing villa

My husband and I spent 8 days at Mom Tris Villa Royale in August 2013, and we were totally blown away by the experience. We had throughly researched the hotel before booking it, but we were still taken aback by our stay at the hotel. THe staff were incredibly helpful with everything, nothing was too much for them to do. I got sick with a bacterial infection, and the hotel staff were so caring and considerate, that on the 3rd day they organized for me to see a doctor. Ying (one of the staff members at reception) was amazing - she was so helpful adn so caring and with that attitude - our stay there was blissful.
The rooms are massive and elegantly decorated. We coudl here there sound of the ocean below even with our doors closed - what a peaceful sound. When we arrived, we found a massive fruit basket in our room with all the exotic thai fruits included. What a treat!
At four pm everyday, the chef prepares the "cake of the day" and the staff bring it to each and every room with the newspaper - what a treat - and what a lovely touch.
The spa was heavenly - the therapists were magical!
The location of the resort is wonderful as well because it is far enough from chaos that can occur at night - but close enough that you can walk into town to join the chaos should you want to.
We had such a lovely time there -i would def go back to this hotel should we ever return to Kata Noi.
I am a fussy traveller and i can honestly say that I cannot fault this hotel or its staff in the slightest.

All of the staff were so lovely , welcoming us:)
We stayed room "Ocean Wing Bordeaux" at 4 days here. The room was nice with great view of the ocean. (in the heat of the sun, it would be perfect, it was rainy season...)
This room was separate from Villa Royale, so it looks private house. But in the rain I can't be bothered to go to the Villa for breakfast.
And Mom Tri's Kitchen was great view with nice food.
You can walk to Kata beach, there are many restaurant but need to hike up the hill to get back to the hotel.

Me and my parents stayed here for 6 nights from July 19-25 recently, making it our fourth trip to the resort in two years. The initial wow factor from the earlier visits are starting to wane, and you'll see why.

Pros:
- Stunning setting with sound of crashing waves all day and night. This is the wow factor that never fails to disappoint.
-Dramatic view everywhere around this local-run, boutique resort.
- Kata Noi is a lovely beach and Momtri Villa Royale has lounge chairs that you can take for free all day.

Cons:
- As this hotel isn't internationally managed, you can see signs of wear and tear with the furniture used, and housekeeping is superficial at best.
- Bed sheets and towels are spotless clean inside the room, but look more closer the details certainly left something to be desired. Ants all over the minibar area, Illy coffee machine was not properly emptied of used capsules when we checked into the suite (started to have molds), dead ants floating in the water compartment of the Illy espresso machine (yuck!), wall behind toilet bowl totally uncleaned for weeks if not months, wood plank wall in bathroom had months old dust piling up and yet it's left uncleaned (clearly visible if you're sitting on the toilet bowl). All in all without more details, I'd say that the standard of housekeeping needs to be improved tremendously.
- Breakfast: choices left something to be desired. A bit more Asian choices would be great.
- Staff: mixed bag. Some are excellent and others look unhappy or as if they are just going through the motions.
- Great restaurant on premise for lunch and dinner, but the menu is now monotonous after several visits.

In all, still a great place to stay for the price, but if you're accustomed to staying in international hotel chains where upkeeping and staff service consistency are way up there, then you'll not get them here.



In all,
