We stayed at Mom Tri’s Villa Royale for ten glorious days, returning home last weekend. I should start by saying that I’m a long time Trip Advisor reader, and rarely post. It’s time for me to start contributing more, and this is just the property to get me off the fence. The entire experience at this property is so sublime and relaxing it’s difficult to convey with mere words. From the punctual and professional pick up at the airport to the moment you check out, one feels welcomed by all.

Mom Tri’s has that rare combination of raw beauty combined with some of the nicest, caring and friendly employees I have ever experienced in my travels. Everyone at the property greets guests and one another with a warm smile and is always at the ready to assist with anything. I consistently marveled at the patience and grace of Mom Tri’s crew in interacting with a great majority of guests who do not speak Thai, and many who do not speak English as a primary language. We actually had the honor to meet and talk with Mom Tri who had stopped by for a couple of days during our stay. After speaking with him and observing him interacting with his employees, we could tell he took a personal interest in his employees and that their caring attitude had been instilled from the top.

But Mom Tri’s Villa Royale isn’t just about service-it’s a “double-threat”-the property’s location and scenic beauty is spectacular: multiple buildings terraced into the natural landscape overlooking Kata Noi Beach. Our Beach Wing room (#10) overlooked the beach and was beautifully appointed in traditional Thai decor. The property is so spread out you never felt overcrowded…if you wanted friendly interaction you could find it…if you wanted seclusion with nothing but the sounds of waves, you could find that too. We’ve all had those vacations where lounge chairs are reserved by phantom sun bathers early in the morning (my personal pet peeve). Not here. There were times it felt like we were the only ones staying at Villa Royale, even though the property was sold out during our entire stay. If we wanted to relax around the pool at noon, no problem, there was plenty of space. If we wanted to relax on the beach at noon, no problem, the property pays for your lounge chair there.

The spa, breakfast, and the Kitchen restaurant were all great. The happy hour in the lounge overlooking the bay was also a welcomed end to the day. And you’re only a short walk down the hill to town for unlimited dining and drinking choices, or a 10 minute taxi ride to Patong.

All in all, we couldn't have been happier with our choice in Phuket, so much so that we’re making plans to return within the next year!

We spent our Honeymoon here (booked through Kuoni) from 19th - 26th April 2013.
We were lucky enough to have been upgraded from our original Royale Wing room to the stunning "Pool Suite" (no.12). A breathtaking room, secluded at the far "beach" end of the property with own pool and directly overlooking Kata Noi beach below.
Little Honeymoon "extras" like beautiful floral displays were laid on for us in the room. I imagine this is common practice by the hotel for honeymoon couples but it still helps provide a very special feeling to what is after all a very special holiday. As others have mentioned the hotel also provides daily dessert/cake treats to the rooms - and the all-important chocolates on the pillow in the evenings!
Overall the hotel is a lovely property in an excellent location. (The short walk down the hill to Kata and back up at night didn't bother us in the slightest.)
Staff were unfailingly friendly and efficient.
We ate both a dinner and a lunch at the Mom Tri's Kitchen restaurant which were complimentary as part of our stay. Food for both meals was high quality including some authentically fiery Thai dishes. If not part of your "package" eating at the restaurant will be a little expensive but we would recommend it if you want to treat yourself during your holiday, even if you are staying at a different property. Eating, or even just enjoying drinks, at the tables looking out over the bay is a memorable experience.
A word about the weather for those considering travelling in April. We were worried that by going after the main part of the season we risked a lot of cloud and thunderstorms. In fact the weather during our week was perfect - though it seems we were somewhat lucky in this as there had been a few rainy/stormy days before we arrived. There was one huge thunderstorm during our stay but as it was overnight we had the pleasure of watching the "show" out in the bay from the safety of our room. By breakfast time the rain had stopped and the sun was out again. Our experience was that April is a great time to go - weather still good, and resorts a little quieter.

Room Tip: We stayed in the stunning Pool Suite (no 12). Huge room, private location in the property makes you feel like you are in your own villa, own pool and views over Kata Noi beach which is directly below.

We came to Mom Tri's for the first time, eager for a relaxing weekend after a busy three weeks of work in Singapore.

We arrived late at night, travel-weary and ready to relax. From the moment we walked in, we felt welcomed. The staff are gracious, warm, and friendly. And there is a quiet elegance and charm throughout the property.

When we arrived, they offered us cool eucalyptus-scented towels to freshen us. Check-in took only minutes, and we were shown to our room. Ours was #40, with a spacious king bed, and a beautiful balcony overlooking the sea. The room was adorned with fragrant flowers. There was a bottle of wine, and a simple snack set up for us.

Breakfast in Mom Tri's kitchen offered wonderful fresh fruit, eggs cooked to order, homemade breads, sausages, bacon, pancakes, and cereals. Plus, delicately sweet smoked salmon, and broiled tomatoes lightly herbed (my favorites every morning).

The first day was rainy, so we sat on our balcony and read. Is there a pleasure greater than sitting with the person you love, and a good book on a warm rainy day?

The rain let up by evening, and we had cocktails at the seaside lounge. There was an excellent bass, guitar, and tenor sax trio playing jazz standards flawlessly. They played softly enough that we could hear the waves against the beach.

We lingered during a dinner of fresh fish and crisp salads. A warm breeze drifting through open windows.

The second day was bright and sunny. Perfect breakfast again, and a walk into town for a few gifts. Then we headed to the beach. Kata Noi beach is open and uncrowded. The sea was quite warm, but still refreshing.

We'll definitely come back to Mom Tri's on our next trip to Asia.

Room Tip: #40 has a beautiful balcony overlooking the sea

A wonderful start to our married life at Mom Tri! Hotel is beyond excellent. The rooms are large and well equipped, we stayed in suite 25 which had an amazing view of the beach! The staff are warm and try their best to help you out at all times! The real differntiating factor for the hotel are are small touches, our favorite was the "daily taste", which is a small tea cake/snack that is delivered to your room every afternoon, this was a fanastic surprise to look forward to! We loved the peace and tranquility that we experianced at the hotel, it was our little oasis in the hussle and bustle of Phuket!

My parents were visiting from Italy for my birthday, so I thought to spend my birthday weekend with them and my wife in Phuket. Naturally I wanted to avoid anything sleezy and just wanted a nice place right on the beach. After much research, we picked Mom Tri's Villa Royale and I am so happy we did.
Everything was perfect, from the airport pick-up to welcome drink, the rooms and the beach just a few steps away. The service was impeccable and staff very friendly. On my birthday even the housekeeping staff wished me happy birthday!
Mom Tri is the former summer residence of a very popular architect the place is named after. He still goes to the resort for his own holidays. Well, as the former villa belonging to one of most famous Thai architects you can imagine. The hotel is designed in charming Thai style, our suites are very spacious, with a private terrace overlooking the ocean and the beach that is just a few steps away. I won't spend much time describing the hotel, just look at the pictures I am attaching. Superb.
The resort is at one end of Kata Noi, the quiet side of Kata. Beach chairs and towels are provided for free, which I understand is not always the case in Phuket. At night we used to walk 5 mins to Kata beach (the busy side) and have dinner at Kata Mama grill, cheap, fresh, seafood and excellent thai food.
Besides the place being stunning, the service was excellent and very attentive. All our needs were catered for, every day we had fresh fruits, water and even a bottle of wine in the suite. For my birthday they even delivered a small cake with Happy Birthday wishes. We stayed in the Beach Wing Suite, which I highly recommend. We did not see the rooms on the other side, but there was some renovation going on.
The restaurant is one of the best in Phuket, serving Thai delicacies with a view over the Andaman Sea. Our package included one dinner, which we took for my birthday. Excellent selection and quality.
Overall one of our favorite places so far, we will certainly go back if we return to Phuket. Perfect for discerning travelers who like luxury mixed with Thai charm.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Beach Wing Suites and would highly recommend them.
