We had a lovely time at the Sala. Our room, a Sala Pool Villa, was comfortable and clean. The pool was amazing and the covered Sala was a great place to sit and read and watch the sometimes heavy rain showers. We had mixed weather, as expected at this time of year (rainy season), but did not find it a problem at all. In fact, the frequent rain showers were often quick and short-lived. In fact, we had 4 days of lovely sunshine in our 10-day stay. The other days were warm and wet. All the rooms here have a covered outdoor sitting/lounging area so the rain did not spoil our holiday in anyway. We could still relax, read and enjoy the warmth. Umbrellas are provided for the short walk to the restaurant. We ate all of our meals at the hotel, though we did not stay half board. We loved the a la carte breakfast and there was plenty to choose from. I wanted the pancakes mostly. You can choose two items from the breakfast menu and my husband tried everyone of them. He also tried some of the breakfast specials which were on the board each day (a different one each day). We always came away very full, and often didn't need to eat until dinner time. The lunch menu started at 11am and finished about 6 (or 6.30?) and the dinner menu started straight after. The lunch menu changed each day (rota of menus) and the extensive dinner menu was the same each day but you could stay for a month and not try everything - there was so much to choose from. When we went for dinner at 5.30pm we were given the choice of choosing from either the dinner or lunch menu. It was very flexible and laid-back which we liked. The food was delicious (menus the same as those on the website). As it was my birthday we also had a spa package which included a healthy lunch. This turned out to be a three-course lunch from a set menu. Very good value for money. The package gave us 90 minutes to two hours in the spa for three days. We would do this again should this offer be running when we go back. Yes, we loved it here and are already talking about our return trip (hopefully next year). Finally, the staff are all very friendly, polite and welcoming. We wanted a peaceful holiday, we spent all of our time in the villa and loved it. You can have the use of a bike during your stay and it didn't seem that far (3 minutes by car) to Turtle Village (we drove past it on our way to get our Covid tests) if you want to venture out. There are also some excursions available. The head chef (a friendly guy) was happy to recommend some places to visit but we were ready to spend our time doing absolutely nothing. In terms of Covid, Phuket Airport was very well organised. All the staff wore masks (at airport and hotel), we had our temperature checked everyday and recorded using the tracking app. Hand sanitiser was provided. We felt safe (as you possibly can be). Can't wait to go back for another chill out, relaxing holiday, with great food, friendly staff and super accommodation.

My fiancée and I spent a week here earlier this month and it was without a doubt the most perfect place I have ever stayed: we felt like we were in paradise. The pool villa was remarkable, we could easily and happily spend days here in total privacy, luxury and comfort. The grounds were impeccable and so lovely: lush tall trees filled with blooming orchids and beautiful . The restaurant was beautiful and the food was wonderful. We loved the bartender and the great selection of gins. The staff were some of the nicest people we have ever encountered; from housekeepers, groundskeepers, pool sweepers, waitstaff and receptionists I cannot say enough good things about every single employee we encountered. I cannot wait to return here and in the meantime will take pleasure in my photos and memories.

Most people are here to stay in Villa which is the right choice. Recommend Sala Pool Villa. The garden room is the building is just right but not convenient due to small dressing area & outdoor rain shower. Thus , it is not convenience for senior citizens. If you come to water sport, this may not be the good place due to the waves & tides. Breakfast has good combination of Thai & Western style.

Thank you for your kind review of SALA Phuket and we are delighted that overall you enjoyed your stay with us. Our outdoor bathrooms are certainly a popular talking point, and whilst they may take a little getting used to at first, they do become a popular feature for the majority of our guests. Unfortunately during the current period, (July to October) all of Phuket west coast beaches have to adapt to some unfavourable weather conditions which bring larger seas and stronger currents. As such, in the interest of guest safety we do not offer water sports during hazardous conditions. Thank you for your comments on our breakfast, and we are delighted that your enjoyed the variety of dishes designed to appeal to different tastes. We do look forward to welcoming you back to SALA Phuket in the future and please don't hesitate to contact me directly if I can be of any assistance. Kind regards, Anthony.

The peacefulness and tranquility of this resort is great. We stayed in a pool villa. Beautiful design and great feeling. Private pool and outdoor bathroom. It was hard to leave the room. The breakfast was lovely and had all we needed. Lunch we sat in the super soft sofa by the pool, the food was great and very good portions. It was such a relaxing quite spot. You must try the smoothies. Staff were all great and knew your name. Will definitely hideaway here again.
