We stayed at Indigo Pearl for our honeymoon (Oct 13). We were met at the entrance by smiling staff who were happy to help with anything that was needed. Welcomed with a cold drinks and freezing facecloths to cool us down. Our room was upgraded and was fantastic. The room (D-Buk Suite) was cool and spacious. The bed was amazing. Plenty of pillows which were soft and comfy. Had a great nights sleep very night. I loved the tin mine décor. Very well thought out and imaginative and you definitely won't had to fight for mirror space. The room came with a conversion power adapter, so there is no need to buy one. Additional adapters were available from reception. More than enough bottles of water were provided to the room for drinking and brushing our teeth. As it was our honeymoon, we received a bottle of sparkling wine, heart shaped chocolate cakes and a fruit bowl.
The resort setting is beautiful. So lush and green. We loved that 2 of the 3 pools were adult only pools, one with a bar. No need to take a towel, they are all provided. There are towel booths at each pool and if you go the Beach Bar, they have towels there as well. We were even able to order 2 towels for our speed boat trip to Phi Phi Island.
We ate at the Rivet Restaurant which was a little expensive but well worth it. The Chef came out for a chat and gave us some great info about the area. Buffet breakfasts are in the Tin Mine with plenty on offer to cover all tastes. Dinner at Tin Mine was also good. I found the Monday night Asian Fusion buffet a bit ordinary though. It was the only so-so meal that we had there.
The Concierge staff were awesome. Our favourite was Elle, nothing was too much trouble for her. She booked all our tours for us, even those not offered by Indigo Pearl, which made it so much easier for us considering language barriers. Some tours were able to be charged back to the room. Most of our tours were around or leaving from the Phuket Town area which was only an hour drive. This just means that you have to get up a bit earlier to meet your transfer which wasn't really a problem as it allowed us to see a bit more of the Island. Most tour operators will provided transfers for a reasonable cost.
Access to free unlimited Wi-Fi was provided but connection was sometimes an issue.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and tried to extend our time but they were booked out. We will stay there again.
