One happy Client!
Nov 2019 • Solo
Wow so many bad reviews. But I must say I also went on a private tour and yes he suggested the stop, but I'm glad he did. I didn't feel pressured at all, in fact, I walked away with a very beautiful Diamond ring in which I was able to offer a price the first rejected the second accepted the people were very friendly and kind. I walked away with my ring I am one happy client. When I come back I shall return.

Very expensive
Aug 2019 • Family
Our driver suggested we stop here for a quick look. Well, the place looks expensive from the minute you walk in. We were met by a woman in formal wear carrying a Walkie talkie. She followed us around but gave very little information initially. It was when we got to the items for sale when we were given a lot of information. The cheapest earings were 1200 bht!!! 😳😳. They were absolutely beautiful though. Most of the items were as expensive as a brand new car! I managed to buy a pretty bag which I believe was made of wood on sale at 720bht. Clearly, this place is ideal if you have a lot of money. It is a good opportunity to see how much money the rich and famous spend but for the ordinary citizen, this is way out of reach.

Waste of time
Apr 2019 • Family
Our NCL cruise ship included this tourist trap to pad out a lousy excursion. Some of the creations are cool but the jewelry is overpriced and the staff hovers over you something fierce. If this is on your itinerary, pick another excursion or jaunt for your time in Phuket.

Tourist tour trap

Same experience as most people: stop as part of day tour. Overpriced etc. Don't bother on your own. Lots of staff and following

Part of sightseeing
Apr 2019 • Family
Visited this as part of the sightseeing tour.

Made as walk through the store; neatly laid out jewellery in glass showcases. Plenty of staff but hardly any customers besides sightseeing visitors. The jewellery on offer appeared to be v expensive.

This place is to be avoided.

We were forced to stop here as our driver was incentivized by this company to introduce us to this place. Once we arrived there a bunch of very nicely dressed ladies were all waiting and quickly approached us to ask where are we from. We responded and they pointed us where to go...it starts with a little museum but you cannot even stop to look at anything as the staff is so desperate to usher you into the main retail area. Once there more and more desperate staff chasing you while you walk around trying to op cabinets and to force you to try any jewelery on. We kindly kept refusing but they carried on being pushy and wouldn't leave us alone for even 1 minute. Worst service I have ever seen in Thailand, doesnt even feel like Thailand actually. I was actually a little interested in looking for jewelery as I am having my wedding next year but I refuse to buy from such desperate and pushy staff. I have seen better service from street sellers. Avoid!

Highly expensive jewels but City Tour free Coffee Stop
Apr 2019 • Family
The half day city tour had a complimentary coffee stop as part of the package at this location.

Realised later that the Jewellery megastore was using tours to attract Overseas Visitors to visit their place and hopefully buy their wares at exhorbitant rates.. None of the three families in the Mini bus tour bought anything.

However the good part was that the store offered complimentary coffee/ Fanta:sprite cans to all the visitors

We went here so that our driver could get a stamp and then get free petrol. We stayed here for 10 mins and the chinese staff were very unpolite as it was clearly that we didn’t want to buy anything. This shop doen’t suit Thailand at all!!!!

incense poor quality
Jan 2019 • Friends
Did a city tour and not releasing bus driver HAD to take us to this place..We wanted to take a short cut through the store to get out, but was soon stopped by staff adn told that we had to walk though all the counters.

decided to by some incense cones, seemed good value...However what got them home and burn them. gave off an burnt wood smell not Lemmon grass or sandalwood as expected.
money wasted at 150 bhatt each,,,

coffee staff were rude and did seem interested in serving customers.
