“New and nice hotel”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

The hotel is just 20 minutes away from the airport. The check in experience was efficient and pleasant. Room is spacious, clean and nicely decorated. Though not enough choices of pillow. The restaurants inside the hotel are good. Enjoyed the cooking class experience. Spa is average, not pricy but the service and skill are not impressive at all. Swimming pool is small, though I didn't really have time to enjoy it. Very far away from downtown, it took 1.5 hour in the evening to get to Patong!

We stayed in a deluxe room at the end of april. Everything was perfect, smiling and devoted staff. Clean and large bedroom with balcony and bathroom with bath and italian shower. King size bed, fridge and flat tv. Some sweeties are deposed in the room in end of afternoon.
The spa is amazing and very quiet, the massages are relaxing with outside private shower under palm trees.
There are two pools enough large (one for children inside the complex and another one for adults close to the beach) and many deckchairs.
Towels, icecreams and water glass are deposed on the table close to you (for free) and you can ordered sandwiches and drinks by the pool (sandbar).
The breakfast offers really plenty of choices and there are 3 good restaurants, one where you take the breakfast and others on the beach at the sandbar or, above it, the Thai.
Note : the hotel is isolated with a long deserted beach but a shuttle is provided and it was not a problem to go to Phuket, Patong or phang-Nga bay.

Beautiful hotel on 17 km sandy beach with only a handful of other hotels. Very quiet and a bit removed from the action, but we loved it. Very friendly staff, big, well-equipped rooms, including tea & coffee facilities. Great breakfast including large selection of smoothies and fresh coconuts, well worth the USD 20. Other meals - a bit disappointing.
We hired a car to get around the island which was much easier than anticipated and a bonus given where the hotel was. There are a couple of small restaurants just down the road - basic but clean and the food was good. We also drove to Laguna a couple of times - approx. 30 min drive, but some good restaurants for the evening, particularly Flame. Would recommend eating outside the hotel-

This is truly one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in - every step of the way, from the sincere welcome with drinks to the efficient check out was superb! The service is at all times friendly, efficient and warm. Nothing is deemed too much for the reception, restaurant, bar and cleaning staff. The room we stayed in was spacious and modern with all the required amenities including an iron and ironing board. The rooms are serviced twice a day and kept in immaculate and clean condition. The pool and beach area is somewhat removed from the main hotel but definitely worth the walk. The beach area is stunning with alloacted loungers and a bar/restaurant area close by. Mai Khao beach is long stretch of white beach with only a few hotels, so great for sunbathing and walks along the beach. Breakfasts are the best I have ever encountered and you are spolit for choice! All possible breakfast treats are freshly presented. Then again all the restaurants were superb although a bit pricey on the beer and wine in my opinion. The hotel has a gym which has all the latest equipment as well as daily activities for guests (yoga, thai chi) as well as activities specifically for children. The hotel has a few bicycles which guests can use to ride around - nice if you need to visit the local shops when you forgot some toiletries for the trip. The hotel has a concept of a "Navigator" who assists with daily trips like snorkeling, day trips, shows etc in the area. I appreciated their recommendations and the organising of the trips were seamless and punctual. The spa is also superb and I had a very relaxing massage - again one of the best treatments ever received. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back in the near future. Keep up the great service!

We had a one bedroom pool villa which backed onto the beach and you could lie in bed and hear the sea at night. The service was overwhelmingly good - we asked for a couple of extra bath mats as getting in and out of the pool left wet floors (obviously), and before we'd even put the phone down the mats were delivered promptly to the door, also the same with IT help to connect the ipad to the internet and more coffee pods were delivered so quickly. The lily coffee machine is brilliant! The decor is sublime and so so clean. The amenities were fantastic. You could feasibly swim laps in the bath it was so large. Any questions were answered with much local knowledge. The breakfasts were GOBSMACKING, sitting out over the water and feeding the fish was just such a delight every morning and the staff bent over backwards to ensure everything was just picture perfect, including very very good espresso coffee. The plunge pool was perfect and larger than it looks in the pictures and kept immaculately clean. We thoroughly enjoyed the sand bar - beautiful atmosphere watching the sun set - stunning! The beach is lovely and it's a short walk into the shops which have a great little supermarket and we loved the esprit outlet shop. The english pub has great beer and shuffle board and was a fun place to hang out - again the staff there were wonderful. I would highly recommend this hotel, particularly for lovers :) Travelled Jetstar direct from Sydney - Jetstar sucks!

Room Tip: Villa 16 was very private and quite lovely. You could hear the sea.

This is a small property (compared to JW Marriott next door) but well maintained. Staff is very warm and cordial. They took time to understand our purpose of vacation, and gave some very valuable inputs. Both check-in and check-out process was a breeze.
Rooms are new and well appointed.
Only drawback (again comparing to JW Marriott) was the size and location of swimming pool. The main pool and kids swimming pool are far off, which makes it a little inconvenient. Good thing is they run a regular shuttle between hotel and JW Marriott. We used this service to take a plunge in JW's pool, so no complains.
And the best part about this hotel is the breakfast. Amazing spread. What I liked most was blend of international food and Thai food. I prefer to try local cuisine, and they've lot of yummy thai options in breakfast.

This beautiful hotel situated on Mai Khao beach is one of the best we have ever stayed in . Calm friendly but attentive staff who went out of their way to ensure our week there was really enjoyable. Excellent breakfasts sitting outside at the side of the hotel pond - plenty of choice and although there was a conference there we never felt crowded of rushed.
Lovely room with glass bathroom and the beds are huge, soft and made us reluctant to get up!
Good food both Thai and international . Good pool perfect for all swimmers. The beach is white and powdery andthe sea blue. Just perfect
