“Posh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

This was the second poshest place in our (v enjoyable, so thx to them) Andaman Sky tour of the region, we finished up here after a spell on Koh Lanta unwinding and a stay at the Vogue in Ao Nang and at the excellent Paradise resort on Koh Yao Noi. The poshest place on our trip was Pimalai on Koh Lanta. The surprising thing was that Mom Tri’s was really quiet compared to the Vogue in Ao nang (we had expected the reverse). Great hotel, we didn’t leave it at all for more than a couple of hours during our stay. When you’re paying the big bucks for a luxury resort, it doesn’t make sense to me to go off day-tripping – I suppose if money’s no object then that would be understandable but that’s not us, I intended to get every pennys’ worth out of my stay at Mon Tri’s, which is exactly what I did.

The staff, food, location and accommodation was excellent and worth all the pennies we paid. If you can afford it then I heartily recommend this as a great place to stay. I can’t comment much on Phuket as we saw little of it. I had read and heard from friends that the night life isn’t what I would like to be taking my wife out on a night out on, so we avoided it and stuck close to the resort, where everything was as clean as a whistle is all senses of the word.

We have been staying at Mom Tri's Villa Royale each year since 2009 and it is our favorite hotel in Phuket, we have stayed in the Royale Wing Suites, Ocean Wing Suites and many times in the Beach Wing Suites.

I would also like to thank the management and staff of Mom Tri’s Villa Royale for the world’s best kept secret. Our daughter lives in Scotland and unbeknown to us had organized with Mom Tri’s a surprise visit. We did not have a clue and I was in our room talking to her on Skype and showing her how beautiful the weather was. She told me to wait a minute as she needed to get a jacket as it was so cold in Scotland.

Then the knock on our door. There she was with her partner and they were staying at Mom Tri’s for 9 nights in the room next to us. Needless to say it was the highlight of our 6 mths in Thailand.

Now back to my review. We always stay during low season and the weather on our recent visit was sensational, we booked the 7 night Platinum Package which is great value.

Every time we arrive the whole experience is magical, the happy staff, the beautiful rooms, Mom Tri’s Kitchen, the grounds, the pools, the peaceful surroundings, there is everything to love about this place. Check in is always a breeze, it only takes a few seconds and instantly you are made to feel very welcome.

We love the Beach Wing Suites; they are more traditional, lots of woodwork and sensational views of Kata Noi Beach from the balcony. All the rooms have free wifi, 32 inch flat screen televisions and DVD players. These rooms may not be suitable for the elderly or disabled due to the amount of steps leading up and down from reception. (However the Royale Wing Suite would be perfect as there are no steps).

There are so many private seating areas around the hotel, set amongst stunning lush green gardens, so if you’re after privacy then Villa Royale is the place to be. It is also all the little things here that count, like coming back at night and our bed has been turned down, a mosquito coil is plugged in; the oil burner is lit, not to mention delicious chocolates left on the bed!

I could go on forever about how much we have enjoyed our stays at Mom Tri’s Villa Royale and words do not describe how wonderful this hotel is. Mom Tri’s Villa Royale is the most peaceful, relaxing and beautiful hotel we have stayed in and we will definitely be back again next year.

It is so quiet & secluded, yet very warm and friendly, it is laid back, nothing pretentious here, but luxurious at the same time.

So if you are looking for somewhere very special to stay with exceptional service, beautiful surroundings, privacy and that feeling of stepping into another world then we highly recommend you stay at Mom Tri’s Villa Royale.

but if you know it from the old days you sigh. (It is like everywhere in Phuket, let's not leave an inch uncovered and squeeeze in another house) Anyhow, the rooms are lovely, the view outstanding, the service more than kind and the food absolutely delicious! Loved the sunsets and warm nights. didn't leave the hotel much.

Absolutely fantastic! Mom Tri's exceeded my expectations. Large spacious and comfortable room with a bed to die for ! Fabulous shower and bath, luxury toiletries, fluffy towels and bath robes. We stayed in the beach wing and we could sit in bed and watch the ocean, amazing. Food exceptional,staff amazing , nothing was too much trouble and always with a smile. Three swimming pools , one fresh water, plus access to the beach. Mom Tri welcomes you to share his home and the experience is like being part of his family, we were even waved off by the staff when we left. I loved this place so much cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: Stay in the beach wing, fabulous views.

Just returned from a Xmas vacation. This place is very tranquil and peaceful giving you a relaxation haven from the normal hustle and bustle of everyday Phuket life. The grounds are beautiful and private with very easy access to the beach should that be require. The pool area is usually very quiet, although this time a poorly supervised pair of children did become annoying - not the normal may I add! They have loverly food available through the day and one of the best Restaurants in Phuket at night, if not a little expensive. But as you know quality comes at a price. The breakfast is stunning with a very varied choice and the hotel staff are all very eager to please. All in all probably one of the best hotels in the area - about 1:10hrs from the airport - with no hassle. On a ever so slight down side it is situated at the top of a hill, but really no issue. Taxi into Karron - £4, Patong - £ 9. The sleep quality is amazing with all rooms A/C and my wife and daughter say the Spa was great but expensive, which is amazing since I paid the bill. Loved every minute.

Room Tip: Room 20 was a Beach wing suite was great for us and provided a very quiet nights sleep

Very unique Hotel, situated up on the hill overlooking a great surfing beach.
We stayed our last 3 nights in South East Asia here at Mom Tri.
The view from our balcony was amazing, our room was a perfect size and two steps from two swimming pools. The food was the best we had in three weeks of traveling, staying at 4-5 star properties throughout. The service at the restaurant was great as well, I can see why they get great ratings.

Room Tip: Our room was the top floor so not noisy at all.
