Visited RPM for a boat trip. It's very pleasant with impressive yachts in the marina and nice houses around the water's edge. There's a cafe, toilets, small businesses - but why oh why is the only sunscreen sold just Factor 15?

This is the first time i have travelled to Phuket Island and many famous destinations around such as Phi Phi Island, Phang Nga Bay, Maya bay, James Bond Island and so on... i have to say that this is such a wonderful trip that have made at the beginning of the year 2023. i could see breathtaking views, enjoy exceptional service at the Royal Phuket Marina since the staff there were so hospitable and willing to help visitors.
Just a few minuses here are that the toilet area at the Maya Bay was overcrowded and water was insufficient to use.
To sum up, i have enjoyment from this trip and if given opportunities, i will come back again. Thanks <3

We went to royal phuket marina to board our boat for phi phi island trip. The place has restaurant, apartments for rent also. It is around half an hour drive from patong. Hence, away from the crowded space of phuket. Plenty of toilets in marina which are neat and clean. Overall, well maintained.

We would like to thank very much all the staff of this great Marina and especially Ben the General Manager.
They take care of us like VIP customer regarding our venue and our jets skis.
We had all facilities for preparing our jets skis before going water.
Very efficient and skill people.
Let's enjoy Phuket on jet ski and thank again to RPM for this great opportunity

We had already been to see James Bond Island up north on a bit of a dodgy tour so weren't quite sure what to expect from this one. But when we arrived at the marina we realized immediately that the tour was going to be run professionally. They greeted us with coffee and tea and gave us time to get changed before a muster meeting to discuss safety etc. There were probably only 30 people on the tour so it wasn't too busy which was nice. We were taken by speed boat out to Monkey Beach, Phi Phi Le and Phi Phi Don Islands. We did lots of snorkling and had plenty of time to play. Lunch was provided on Phi Phi Don and was the only disappointing thing about the whole tour as it was yucky and I refused to eat it. However, the tour staff also provided fruit, drinks and snacks on board so it was ok.

We had access to the beach and the resort pool at Phi Phi Don so that was nice. The staff on the tour were fabulous: friendly, funny, playful but above all, professional. We really felt welcome and we had confidence that they knew what they were doing and had our safety foremost in mind. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to spend a great day out exploring the islands around the East coast of Phuket.

Upon arrival at the SeaStar reception at the Royal Phuket Marina there was a selection of complementary water, tea, coffee, toast and biscuits, which was very welcome, considering our 7am start from Khao Lak. There was also a free supply of travel sickness pills.
Flippers were for rent at 100 baht.
There then followed a talk about the days itinerary, which some guests could not hear, as the reception wasn't large enough to accommodate.
On the day we traveled there were 5 large speed boats each carrying about 45 passengers.
We departed the very plush Royal Phuket Marina and headed south to Phi-Phi. The sea wasn't that rough, but the ride was very harsh at times due to us riding in the bow section. This took about 1 hour.
First stop was to feed the monkeys on Phi-Phi Don and then sail for a couple of minutes to do some snorkeling.
A further short sail to Ton Sai bay for 1 hour lunch.
After lunch a quick look at the Viking cave on Phi-Phi Leh it was about 5 mins. sail for a swim in Phi Leh lagoon.
After this there was a 15 min. journey to Maya Bay (famous for "The Beach").
We then set sail for Khai island. This took about 45mins.
Khai Island stop over was about 1 1/2 hrs.
The final part of the trip retuned us to the marina, taking about 20mins.

The good:-
Maya Bay is stunning.
The snorkeling is great for seeing the fish and coral.
Crystal clear waters.
The tour guide and boat staff.
Plentyfull supply of snacks and drinks on the boat.

The bad:-
On the boat you have the choice of the spine shattering bow seats or the under cover area with the smell of vomit from other passengers.
Ton Sai bay fills up quickly with trip boats and soon looks like a marina, not a beach.
Lunch was very average.
The ice cream and photo sellers won't leave you alone on Khai island.The 1 1/2 hour stop at khai island was too long in my opinion.It had been a long day and I would have been happy with a shorter stay.
The ugly:-
The toilets on Khai island are disgusting and they charge you 20 baht for the privilege and you can't even wash your hands! Thank goodness for alcohol gel!!!!!!!!
Drinks and food on Khai island are a rip off, even by UK prices.
~~~~~~~~
Overall the trip was enjoyable and we wouldn't have missed the amazing sites we saw.

When you enter Royal Phuket Marina, it is like entering Saint Tropez, except for the fact that there is absolutely no people and everything is closed. Could be a scene from the "walking dead", except there is no zombies either. Don't go there, unless your yact is parked in the marina, it is a waste of time:)

Dear Anne DN, Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Tripadvisor. Comparing the marina to the walking dead is interesting, as the only similarity we see is the fact both have been nominated for a host of awards. But you are correct as there are no Zombies here, which is great news. We would like to know when and what time of day or night did you visit the marina as you mention that everything is closed? We have many private offices located at Royal Phuket Marina and yes they are closed to the public, such as Booking.com and Marriott, but our 5 restaurants and 3 bars are all open daily. Your opinion that it is a waste of time is rather unfair, as many people enjoy strolling along the boardwalk and enjoying the relaxed, yet “Saint Tropez” style atmosphere. You should come back and enjoy one of the many live bands we have, comedy nights, and plus we are home to the largest Boat Show in Thailand. Thank you again for taking the time to review us. Best Wishes Jay

The long long driveway into RPM is very well looked after and you drive through some lovely gardens. When you arrive in the Marina itself you will see some very well presented low rise apartment buildings and several villas worth about $US6 million each. I think it is the only place in Phuket that you can moor your yacht at the end of your garden, if you own a villa.

I have spent a lot of time here as I know the management and it is slowly going downhill. One of the only two restaurants is now closed due to lack of business and the other survives because it is owned by the Marina owner.

Apart from one expensive clothing shop and an overpriced restaurant, there is nothing here unless you moor your boat here,

If you do moor your boat here, you can only take it out to sea at high tide as the river going out to sea is never dredged. Also keep the tides in mind when you want to come back in.

Some boat tours operate from here but unless you have a boat it isn't worth a visit.

Conclusion. A very well presented ghost town.
