I previously had a booking to stay @ this resort for 15 days upon arrival to Phuket and had to change when the Thai consulate in my province couldn't find that hotel in their pre-approved list of Shaba plus hotel, therefor I changed my date to the 21 Sept 2021 so 15 day's after my stay in a Shaba+ Hotel in Phuket and I was looking forward to going do a review of that resort since my viewers on my youtube travel channel had asked for me to do a review on the Yanui Resort near Rawai beach and then all got messy, for that reason my nightly price change to 1300 bhat from 900 bhat. I called them to ask for an explanation and even with me booking with Booking.com on the first reservation they still said that I had booked true their own site and that I agreed to that price, I did send them the info that I had booked true Booking.com and the initial price but they kept on saying that they didn't find anything regarding that, and then a couple of days later I got an e-mail from them a that said that I had booked only 1 day under that price. Well, all is said and done I have given them the chance to redeem themself before I write my review on Youtube but didn't get anywhere with this. I wish them luck and hope that they will be more honest with their future client/s…
We stayed for the entire two weeks sandbox entry duration. We would absolutely recommend this hotel. Lovely, clean rooms with a gorgeous swimming pool, all very well maintained. The staff were super helpful and the restaurant food was seriously good! Conveniently located, all amenities were in walking distance, and the hotel offered motorbike rental service also.
My partner and I stayed at Ya Nui for 2 weeks for the Phuket Sandbox program. We had a lovely stay. The staff are very kind and helpful and Mon and Gabriel were fantastic both with the booking and throughout our stay, answering any questions and helping arrange requests for taxis, etc. The room/apartment is very large and had everything we needed, location is quiet but very easy to get into town, particularly if you have a motorbike.
I used the Phuket Sandbox and stayed for 14 days. The hospitality and service were in the atmosphere and it was felt immediately upon arrival.The room was large and cleaned every day. And I liked the BIG fridgeI pre-order a Taxi 1000 baht via Yao Noi Resort (42 km). Easy. And then I rent small motorbike (200 bath / day). Easy. The best thing was to be able to swim in the pool or if it rained hard you could eat in their little restaurant with good food and good pricesOne more thing. During covid 19, Rawai area is the area that is very open so in the evenings you could "cheat" for a beer or sit and enjoy both sunset and sunrise.
I stayed here for 5 months and it was the best I've slept in all of Thailand (maybe my whole life). The beds and A/C units are some of the highest quality I've had, the room is super cozy, and the maintenance of the pool / garden top notch. The whole vibe of Ya Nui Resort is also super nice for relaxing and giving a sense of home. The staff are friendly and the owner is very responsive to concerns / questions. I highly recommend Ya Nui Resort for anyone visiting or living in Rawai / Phuket.
