My wife and I went on our honeymoon here in August 2006. I still think about that trip. Amazing property with very nice and attentive staff. The prices, by North American standards, for room service and taxi service are very reasonable (~$10 a dish). Breakfast, if I recall correctly, was included and it was delicious.

The island itself is so nice. Very touristy in some areas but there's so much to see and do. We did do a day tour to Pi Pi Island (not sure of spelling), and that was great. All of this can be arranged from the front desk, and they do provide some free car service to areas close by.

The price of the hotel at the time was expensive although reasonable; we felt it was worth every penny. We had such a worry-free vacation. Half the time was spent in our suite enjoying the view and lounging in the pool.

Would love to go back some day.

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking over the ocean

My husband and I stayed at the resort in April, 2011 for our honeymoon. We couldn't have been happier. It was so peaceful we were not even aware there were other guests staying at the resort. The only time you bumped into people was when you attended breakfast in the morning. The food was absolutely great, service was great (when we were understood) and staff were so friendly. The only downside was that we were quite a distance from the beach but we did have our own private pool and there were also daily shuttle buses to accommodate. The bugs were also a slight problem for me only because I have such a great fear, but there was conveniently a can of bug spray in the room. We will defiantly be back if we return to Phuket.

Would absolutely recommend this resort for couples - it is as advertised - a perfect romantic getaway.

Service: Upon arrival, JC, the hotel manager, greeted us at the lobby and came by at breakfast to say hi. We were in town to attend a wedding and the hotel was kind enough to offer us complimentary transportation by private car back and forth to a nearby hotel about 10 minutes away. It was a major perk given the notorious Phuket taxi mafia.

Room: We were taken to our Spa and Pool Pavilion which had an amazing view of the laguna (although not the more attractive view of the ocean). The room looked exactly as it did online. For 3 days we relaxed and watched DVDs. Before we left, we visited the Ocean View Villas and although they had better views, my wife and I agreed that the huge sofas in the Spa and Pool Pavilions (where we spent the bulk of our time) were superior to the "regular" sofas in the Ocean View Villas.

Food: We ate at the restaurant 3 times and also had room service 3 times. Food was very good, and although it was hotel level prices, we didn't feel ripped off since the quality was up to par. Would recommend the burger and fish taco. The Banh Mi sandwich and Thai food was also very good. Breakfast consisted of a buffet spread and also a menu where you can order Thai and Western breakfast items (i.e. eggs benedict, pancakes, waffles etc). One tip is that they need to cover their buffet food with nets. They did so on the second day we were there, but not the first and on both mornings there were no nets on the fruit which had a lot of flies buzzing around. This didn't bother me but I know many people would not eat it. Unfortunately we did not get to check out the 360 Bar & Restaurant since we did not eat dinner at the Pavilions. There is complimentary afternoon tea in the Library (3:00-4:30pm) which had a very simple spread but very good iced tea.

Spa: We didn't get to use the special spa room unfortunately. The spa prices were comparable to 5 star hotels (US$100-200 per treatment).

Housekeeping: The only constructive criticism is that housekeeping needs a bit of work. Turndown service only focused on the bed and left the living room and bathroom messy. On the second night, there was no turndown service, so the room wasn't cleaned the entire day. It was not entirely their fault, because some pool cleaners had accidentally entered our room thinking it was empty and were shocked to find us sitting in the living room (fortunately, we were fully clothed). Apparently, they entered because we neglected to lock the door after room service left (so definitely lock your door!). But they were very apologetic and activated our do not disturb sign which was the reason we did not get turn down service that night. The next morning we asked housekeeping to clean our room while we were away for breakfast but by the time we returned (45 minutes later) they had not started yet.

Overall, I would highly recommend this place and the housekeeping issues did not detract from our stay at all. Just some constructive input for the hotel to better themselves. A big thank you to JC and his staff for a wonderful 3 day stay.

Room Tip: If you are staying in a Spa and Pool Pavilion, choose rooms 40-45 which are the pavilions at the ver...

Stayed 3 nights from 28-31 October 2011. We were supposed to be in Bangkok during that time but in view of the flooding, we made a last minute change to The Pavilions - with no regrets!

We stayed in one of the Spa and Pool Pavilions and it is just great. We spent most of the time in our room just chilling out, ordering room service and catching up on DVDs. The attached spa room is great, no hassles of having to get to the spa for our treatments.

We will certainly choose The Pavilions again the next time we are in Phuket!

We have been there nearly four years ago when its nearly opened. At that time, still part of facility were under construction. This time, more villas and restaurant was completed. Last time we had a great time there and this time as well. During our stay, we had to change room and we experienced two different types of rooms but both were great. First room was pool villa with sea view which we stayed last time as well. Huge private swimming pool with ocean view. Very relaxing. The room we moved to was Pent House. This room does not have ocean view, but the garden view is not that bad. They have also a swimming pool, and furthermore they have so spacious living room, dining space, bed room, closet, bathroom with outdoor shower, and even private spa treatment room. We had Spa treatment twice, but it was awesome. Only one thing. Beach is not in a walking distance, but if you want to enjoy the private exclusive holiday, i think the Pavilion is great enough, and quite reasonable comparing to time and services you receive there.

My wife and I came here on our honeymoon and we fell in love with everything about this place. Luxury is an understatement when describing the Ocean View Vila we stayed in.

Everything the staff did outdid our expectations. Our every need was catered to and every request was attended to promptly.

The food supplied by Chef Alec and his team was the most amazing food we have ever tasted (try the Juicy Lucy gormet burger).

We will definitely be coming back here, as our stay at the pavilions has ruined us for any other resort.

A wonderful place to get over jet lag and enjoy the wonderful location and spa treatments.A beautiful comtemporary Hotel very Zen. Our room had a gorgeous pool and spa room attached. The food was delicious. They have a great mountain top bar with which to watch the sunset. Although I went with my sister and we had a blast, it definitely is more of a place you would go with your lover, husband, partner whatever. It was very quiet, we felt like we were the only ones around. It was a great way to rest up, be totally pampered and get ready for our three weeeks in thailand. We didnt want to leave the property we were so comfortable and taken care of..has great wi-fi if you want to be connected to outside world!

The service was fantastic, everyone very nice. They can take you to a nice secluded beach or will arrange any excursion you would like to the outer islands. It you are a romantic and want a place to be with that special person in your life definitely visit The Pavillions!

Room Tip: ask for a view
