we stayed in the D buk suite with 2 young kids. it was an excellent experience. it had a tub in the bedroom, a private spa room, an elegant living room with a great bar & wine cellar and a large balcony overlooking the very green hotel-resort.
the theme of 'tin mine' can be seen all over the hotel and makes it an unique design hotel for anyone with taste.
the restaurant and bars are great, especially the thai restaurant in the middle of a pool of water. the family & adult pools are separate, allowing privacy for all. the kids club with nanny service is great. the nai yang beach is just outside the resort gate with good shopping & eating options too.
i will highly recommend the private pool villas for couples as they are the best honeymoon (first/second/third) location.
dont miss to hire a bike and ride along the beach road or maybe try the kite surfing school outside the resort.
note that nai yang beach is 10 mins from the airport but over an hour away from the phuket town and patong beach which is the main party hub of phuket but then phuket is easily explorable with a self-drive car.
