We stayed 3 nights w/ our 2 boys, 9 & 11, and could have stayed longer. The tin mining theme along w/ Thai and other artistic elements was hip and inspiring. There are so many special and creative spaces on this large well-maintained property. Walking through the maze-like trails, you often came upon something new. The large family pool was...

We combined a one week stay in Bangkok with one week in Phuket for some rest & relaxation. We generally tend to look for small boutique style hotels with a friendly service. This hotel definitely fit the bill, we really liked the 'industrial chic' design theme. Being so close to the airport is definitely a big plus. We got off...

This must be the only hotel I've ever stayed at where the hotel pictures on the website are truly representative of the beauty of the place. The Indigo Pearl is an amazing resort. It has 3 pools, one with a swim up bar, and direct beach access. You get beach chairs, towels, water, and fresh fruit by the ocean for...

We stayed here for 6 nights at the end of our Cambodia/Thailand trip for rest and relaxation. We were greeted on arrival with iced tea and cold towels and upgraded to a plantation villa. The hotel is huge, and something that we would usually opt for, but we enjoyed our stay here. The area surrounding the hotel is not hugely...

My husband and I stayed at the Indigo Pearl in March 10 (for our anniversary) for 6 days and fell in love with it. We got a really good deal through our travel agent, room upgrade, bonus meals, spa treatment & more. The room (a private pool pavillion) was amazing, service great, food fantastic, we even ate dinner on the...

Pros - Extremely close to the airport (like 5 min drive), and that means I can check out less than 90 min prior to flight arrival - Hospitable service throughout - Dedicated beach area with beach attendants that would lay out towels and ice water service - Security is evident throughout, at hotel entrance from beach/main entrance and even a...

The boutique Indigo Pearl is Thai perfection and if you choose to stay here you won’t be disappointed. We arrived by private hotel transfer and were immediately greeted by staff with cooling towels, iced-tea and even a bed to park ourselves on whilst they were checking us in. This five-star welcome was a fair reflection of the outstanding service we...
