“An awesome experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

We have enjoyed every aspect of our honeymoon celebration at your beautiful resort! The people have been amazing. A special shout out to our awesome food friends, Nancy and Ginny! A special shout out also goes to the awesome friends at the front desk, Amm and Tony! They took great care of us in every aspect of our stay but especially helping us out with a late checkout! Such a simple request helped us out a lot concerning our late night flight! I appreciated everything that was done for us as a platinum Marriott rewards member! THANK YOU!

If you are looking for a calm, relaxing vacation on the beach this is the place to do it. It is located a 45 minute cab ride from Phuket so you are not going to get any action here , which is great if you are looking to relax. The hotel was at 100% occupancy for 3 of the 6 days we were there and we could not feel it. The pool had plenty of chairs available, the beaches were not crowded at all. The staff go out of their way to make you relax. Highly recommend it if you want to get away.
Beaches are clean and beautiful, the sand is not the finest or the whitest but plentiful to enjoy. We upgraded to a Pool Villa room and it was amazing, we did not ant to leave the room given we had a private pool right in our back yard.
Breakfast is better than average and the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff is wonderful.

Room Tip: It's worth the upgrade to a pool villa room. Deluxe rooms near the lobby are more private that t...

Great service, great breakfast, great smiling staff, quiet, true resort, good location...a little far from Patong and phuket town in case you want to do that every night.

Green, birds chirping in the morning....beach is ok...but private and again...in busy busy phuket...at least you have place to relax.

Room Tip: We got a villa with a pool...worth it.

We have previously stated at JW Marriott (1k away) but wanted to try somewhere new. Stayed in Chinese New Year 2014, with my wife and two kids age 5,2. The Hotel is a smart modern looking place, more minimalist than JWM. It's a compact resort, with own beachfront, and a mix of 1 bed apartments and 1-3 bed villas. We had a 1 bed Villa, which was nicely appointed with big bathroom, and big main bed, plus a sofa bed and cot for the kids. This villa does lack a private space as you are all in one room, big though it is. The facilities includes a very good spa, kids club which was pretty quiet next to a kids pool area, an adult pool and a small gym. There are 3 restaurants (a good Thai one) a bar, and coffee shop. And of course the beach! It's not overloaded with people for the facilities but it does lack stuff to do. There are no water sports activities at all and pretty much everything else is 20 minutes + away (tennis, golf, horse or elephant riding, sailing, etc) so it's a place to relax and swim, eat, and relax (not easy with kids, so thank god for iPad, though there is a good tv/DVD player in the villa). It does need more activities but we liked our stay and would come back. Staff are really friendly though service could be a little slow sometimes. It's also only 20 minutes from the airport, so it's easy.

We have just returned from eight amazing nights at the Renaissance. This was one of the nicest vacations that we have ever had, and certainly was the most relaxing. The Renaissance is designed in such a natural way that one can really enjoy the surroundings, especially the gorgeous beach. It definitely did not have that "package tour" feel, just a feeling that you are in your own little piece of paradise far from the madding crowds.

The food was excellent, and the breakfast exceptional. I also loved the muay thai class on the beach.

We traveled with our toddler son,and the staff was extremely kind to him. It was a perfect place to bring a toddler. The waves were gentle, the playroom was superb, and the kids' pool was a lovely blue grotto.

Every single member of staff was polite, kind, and competent. I felt like they really cared about our happiness during our vacation.

My wife and I just returned from our annual trip to Thailand. The last three night we wanted to be closer to the airport in Phuket so we elected to stay at the Renaissance. The resort is new and nothing short of stunning. The beach is pristine and uncrowded. Unfortunately on our first day we saw a young Russian girl sitting on the beach, crying rubbing her lower leg. Soon thereafter the red flags were up and swimming was not permitted due to jellyfish. The other days the yellow caution flag were up and people seemed to enjoy the beach again.

The pool is small and feels crowded. There is a children's pool but parents seem to bring their children to the main pool. Its becomes very noisy and crowded with children. Certainly not a relaxing experience.

We ate one night at a seafood buffet which was marginal. The highlight of the dinner was the many flavors of ice cream available. The other night at the Thai restaurant which was pleasant and offered a gorgeous view of the sunset.

The hotel and grounds are beautiful both lush and tropical. Walking to our villa we noticed that there is chill lounge music softly being played in hidden speakers throughout the resort. It was a nice touch.

Overall a very nice resort. However, I wouldn't characterize it as it as relaxing or tranquil as the pool is small and crowded with children.
