“Very nice for a quiet break”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

Enjoyed staying at the Renaissance in June 2013. We booked a villa for 7 nights & it was quite lovely. The facility is nice & everything works the way it should. At this time of year the beach was unusable, which might have made the difference.

The only negative is that it is really very isolated. So if you want a quite 'away from it all' break, this is the place for you. On the other hand if you want to do anything else at all apart from eat, drink & swim then you should look for an option closer to town. It is about 30 mins from Phuket town (or anything else).

If we stayed here again we would hire a car which would just about solve the issue.

We stayed here for our honeymoon, and what a wonderful stay it was. This ranks as one of my top hotel experiences of all time, and I've travelled quite a bit! The hotel is simply stunning. It's a very "zen" experience, with an open plan - the reception area is entirely open - water features everywhere, and beautiful decor.

We stayed on the fourth floor and had a garden view. Everywhere is kept meticulously clean. The breakfasts are out of this world. So much choice, from cooked to cold, sweet treats to savoury dishes, fresh fruit and juices, eggs made to order, waffles, etc. Everything you can imagine. We ate one night at the Thai restaurant, it was a real treat as it's a little pricey. Delicious. We also ate numerous times at the Sandbox which I highly recommend. I'd like to particularly mention the satay chicken, washed down with a mojito while watching the sun set - amazing. The pool is infinity style and there is a hot tub - great for chilling out. The beach is beautiful, not really geared for swimming, as others have mentioned, as the water is rough, but it's nice for walks. The staff were all pleasant and very helpful. I tried the spa for a mani/pedi and was very happy with the experience. My husband and I also got the "beach hut massages" which were pretty good. The hotel offers courtesy bikes and we took advantage a couple of times and went for bike rides, which was great.

One thing to mention - this is NOT a place for partiers. It's pretty isolated which is just what we were after, but if you're looking for a night time scene, this is not the place for you. If on the other hand, you're after a blissful, incredible relaxing, getting away from it all trip in a beautiful location, this IS the place for you. Go - you won't be disappointed.

We took a taxi (thanks to the folk on TripAdvisor) & it was a quick & easy drive to the hotel. Requested for a higher floor, (again thanks for the tip!) which we were promptly given. It was a lovely room overlooking the kiddie pool.

The Breakfast was awesome, so many choices, including ice cream!

Only suggestion would be that for the Children play area, it would be better if there were things to do/play with for 3-4 yr olds others than just the wooden toys.

Overall - Had a wonderful stay there & want to say Thank you to all the staff who made our stay so wonderful!

This is the perfect hotel if you are looking for a place where you just want to sit back and relax, enjoy alll the hotel facilities without any second thought to stroll around Phuket.
This place is pretty remote and far from the well-known beach such as Patong which can be 1 hour drive.

I was here for 3-days business meeting. The meeting room were using Takieng resto with beautiful scenery to the beach and the pool. Thanks to the curtain that we can still focus on our meeting but not during the coffee break.

The room is very clean and spacious, the food for breakfast, coffee-break and lunch was good, the pool look very refreshing (because i dont have chance to swim), the staff were helpfull.

If you are looking for more local taste food with reasonable price, you have to go out from the hotel which there will be small traditional resto nearby.

Recently stayed 7 nights. Lovely room plenty of space, very nice bathroom. Staff were excellent especially the breakfast staff. We had rented a car for the duration of our stay and were happy we had done so. Hotel is quite remote and expensive to eat/drink in so we went out most days and every evening for dinner. The best little resturant we found was not too far from hotel about 750m, within walking distance but roads are not well lit at night. Hotel was busy at weekends and many families with children. We enjoyed our stay.
