“our fav phuket hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

Our family has had 2 annual trips staying at this location though far from the tourist traps. Once here, we rent a truck which gives us easy access to the whole island. Breakfast everyday is served at the cafe on the beach.

My family spent 4 days relaxing there. It was worth more than what we paid for. Excellent first-class service.
Our 2 bedroom suite was very spacious, clean and every small thing taken care of..slippers for the beach, bathrobe, drinking water, wi-fi access, TV in every room.
Food was ok.
Beautiful peaceful view from the balcony, nice to have evening tea!
Hotel is located far away from city center, hence the quiteness.
Hotel offers shuttle service to shopping mall twice a day.
We really loved it there. No complaints!!

My husband and I went here on our honeymoon and we couldn't be happier! The staff was super friendly and really accommodating. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. It is a bit out of the way but they have a shuttle that runs twice a day into town. Such a lovely place!

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

The first day i entered to this hotel the staffs were very nice and friendly. Room were big enough with a clear and beautiful sea view. I m very satisfied with the room services. However, as we were young ppl, we preferred to go to the phuket town, patong beach or any crowded and happening places. The distance from the hotel to those places were very far.. therefore taxi fares were higher as well. Anyway, it depends on what you want. If you prefer a peaceful environment to stay on, i would highly likely recommend you to stay over in this hotel. it is very suitable for family and old folks. Not forget to mention, the seaview here is really beautiful !

Planned a month in Thailand and started with 3days at this hotel. This hotel fits perfect for familys and couples, but wouldnt recommend for partygoers. The food is good and the water is warm. The hotel is right down at the beach with a decent pool and good restaurant.

On arrival, we were told that they didn't have the small room we'd paid for, so we'd been upgraded to a larger room. I'll say. It was a 2 bedroom suite that was huge. Outdoor terrace overlooking Chalong Bay shared with the four suites on that level. The restaurant was down about 3 flights of stairs, but a golf cart was available to ferry anyone who had difficulties, or in the rain. Food was very good and not too expensive, staff were helpful and friendly. The beach is good for swimming at high tide, possible at low tide if you watch out for the rocks in the water. Very quiet bay, great place to take kids. Only disadvantage is that it is not walking distance from anything - you have to take a free shuttle that goes to a central mall a few times a day, or take a taxi (which isn't cheap compared to other taxi rides we had in Thailand). Laundry facilities available, but don't plan to do large loads as they take a while and are not large machines.

Room Tip: 2-bedroom suites (A101-A104) are wonderful. There are rooms that are on the lowest level and open to...

Sadly we only had 2 days here, but they were perfect - especially having the craziness of Bangkok. The service is top notch, the food delicious and the views wonderful. Can't wait to come back. If you're looking for some place peaceful, this is the spot. If you want to be more in the action, they have a location in Patong.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms right by the pool - great access to pool, restaurant & beach
