Great setting for relaxation..
From start to finish Jon and his team make you feal special.
Great food..great cocktails..great service.
More for couples rather than familys but only a cab ride away from the hectic world of Phatong.
They say you get what you pay for so it may cost that little bit more but well worth the money.
Some nice local places to eat also.
Keep up the good work Sala

My husband and I totally enjoyed our stay. The rooms with the outdoor pool are amazing and very private and quiet. We stayed for 2 nights for our friend's wedding and the food was also very good. Also loved the beach in the front.

We found the outdoor toilet/shower a bit odd as we had to go outdoors to use them, even during the middle of the night. Also it was a bit awkward to have friends over when they needed to use the bathroom (really a hotel for couples only, great for romantic getaways) There was appropriate doors but for example I couldn't be showering without being seen if someone was in the pool.

Also, our flight arrived 1:30am (in the middle of the night) and I had arranged for the hotel driver to pick us up. However upon arrival, the driver was not there and we had to wait around for him for around 10-15 mins. Not very nice when it's so late at night after a long flight.

Dear Signature HKLouise, thank you ever so much for your wonderful review of your 2 nights at SALA Phuket Resort & Spa. It’s so wonderful to hear you thoroughly enjoyed your relaxing stay and your friend’s wedding too. It’s disappointing however to read about the mix-up with your airport transportation upon your arrival which is not a very good first impression at all. We’re glad this issue did not deter you both from having such a lovely time. We shall look forward to you returning in the future. All the best the SALA Management

We stayed at the Sala for 5 nights on our way home from a month in New Zealand - I would recommend this strategy incidentally as jet lag has been minimal.
The location of the hotel is wonderful, there is oceans of space for a smallish hotel, the facilities are excellent, the staff are terrific, the food was,excellent, the design of the room was excellent but...........it looked very tired with poor quality furnishings and fittings.
We had a garden room with pool where the plumbing was not the greatest, a third of the water from the shower went up not down, the outlet from the sink leaked, it was impossible to run a bath and the tiles needed a good scrub. What a shame as I would have loved to have rated this hotel as excellent.

Room Tip: have a garden room with pool - it is a proper pool.

I loved everything about it , once we stepped in the hotel we got a very warm welcome they gave us a jasmine bracelet and cold mouth-watering ginger tea....then they walked us to our private Villa were the charm started ......I loved the pool , the outside bathroom and everything about it .
the only thing that bothered me a bit the BUGS around there .
the beach is just so clean , the long old trees all over the place...This is to be visited again and again ......and again.

My husband and I have lived in Asia for almost 30 years and have travelled extensively throughout the region. This trip was to be 6 nights of relaxation, and a chance to eat some good Thai food, and having visited Phuket many times before, we just wanted a peaceful resort, and Sala was perfect. we had spent a week in Sala Samui before and enjoyed the experience, so went for the slightly larger one bedroom pool villa, which was lovely. The set up here would suit so many people, the villa we had, a travel cot/ small bed would easily fit in the sitting room area, giving parents privacy, plus the large grass areas and the 2 large swimming pools in the public spaces are ideal,much better than having to stay in a large impersonal hotel. Well done Sala, we will certainly return.

This place is sexy! The rooms are cool, stylish and functional. Really comfortable beds and the outdoor bathrooms are lovely. The food at the restaurant surpassed expectations and the spa treatments were terrific. My only complaint about this place is the service, which is spotty to say the best. The servers aren't familiar with the menu, forget your order, and are SLOW to show up to help you. If you're looking for a place where your needs will be anticipated this isn't it. That said the quality is good and the product is unique and interesting. Hoping the management can help elevate the service standards. I would absolutely go back!

Dear Signature ErinRaves9779, thank you so much for choosing to stay with us at SALA Phuket Resort & Spa and for taking the time to share your experience. It’s so lovely to hear you enjoyed the resort’s ambience, style and the food. It is however extremely disappointing to read about the less than acceptable service standards you experienced in the restaurant to which we have discussed in detail and will endeavor to continuously improve upon. Our restaurant usually has received such great comments which is why it’s double frustrating to read that this appears not to be the case with all our guests. Thank you again and we shall look forward to your return and to your pleasure with our improvements. All the best the SALA Management

After a 2 week vacation throughout Thailand me and my boyfriend wanted to relax for 2 more nights before having to return back home. We booked a pool villa suite and where very impressed by the whole resort. From the moment you step out of the car, you feel relaxed and well taken care off. The staff is very helpful and the resort is simply beautiful. Very relaxed and very quiet.

Another great thing about the resort was the award winning restaurant. The dishes where very well prepared (from european to thai food) and even the room service was good - serving fresh pizza in a pizza box ;-)
The restaurant is a bit on the pricy side, compared to local thai restaurants but then again the quality is amazing.

Truly recommend this resort.
