“The best resort you might even think of !!”
Reviewed September 6, 2010

first of all, I have made my reservation through the internet and confirmed the reservation via email and reserved for the airport transport via the email as well, where the guys in the Bell were very sweet. It was my first destination in the honeymoon trip and I wanted everything to be perfect, and so it was. When we arrived to the airport we found the driver waiting for and we had no delay or difficulty finding him. He took us to the resort where everyone warmly welcomed us. We arrived at the resort at 11:00am when the check in was supposed to be at 2:00pm! However, the manager there asked the guys to make sure to get the villa ready as soon as possible. We waited for around 45mins to get the keys. During the waiting period we enjoyed the refreshing Thai tea that was served to us and the time passed quickly while going through the brochures of the beautiful Phuket. So the reception was perfect and the stuff were very helpful and kind.
After we got our keys, the manager and two of the stuff came along with us to introduce the villa for us ! and we were impressed !! it was the most beautiful place I have ever saw. Believe me, you feel like you are staying at heaven !! the huge swimming pool, the fully equipped kitchen, the big dining table, the nice living area with the LCD tv and a DVD. What else would you want. Moreover, the bed room was amazing. The outside shower and the private sala made even better. You can find all this inside your OWN PRIVATE villa. And believe me it’s a huge villa.
Moving to the stuff, they were amazing, helpful and kind. The resort have a free shuttles to the kamala beach and the batong beach in certain times, however, you could always ask the hotel to arrange a charged shuttle at the time you want. I have personally asked them to provide me with a driver for one full day to take me around Phuket and introduce me to all places and he did. The service from the resort is a bit expensive if you compare it with the taxies outside, however, its more safe, the driver would speak English and you would go inside a well air-conditioned 4X4 car, add to that the cool box with the cold water, juice and towels all day.
On the other hand, the resort would provide the free DVDs to watch and the free reservation in the events and shows that happens in Phuket. The resort doesn’t have a resonant, but it has a kitchen with a very delicious food.

We arrived on June the 8th for our honeymoon at The Bell Resort Phuket and right from the start we were amazed!!! From the beautiful bracelets, to the amazing fish near the walk way at reception & the great greeting from staff - My wife & I both knew this experience was going to be very special. We were escorted to our room straight away - 2 hours before our scheduled check in. We were absolutely breath-taken by how beautiful our private pool villa was. The sala, infinity pool, kitchen/living areas and master bedroom were IMPRESSIVE!. House keeping even went to the trouble of making a lovely love heart swan from bath towels adorned with rose petals on our King-size bed. The staff where equally amazing, from our 3 hour massages under our own sala, to our personal butler, chefs catering to our every need & office staff always on hand to answer any questions. Thanks especially to May who was the most pleasant person we came across in Thailand, we really enjoyed our conversations with her and she did everything possible along with the rest of the staff to make our stay enjoyable. We will never forget our experience at The Bell as it was the best start to our married life together. Thank you to the operations manager as well who went out of his way to say hello. To finish, we looked long and hard when trying to find a place to spend our honeymoon week - we chose The Bell for its impressive amenities and although it is a little further out than most places, the free shuttle services from the hotel made it easy to do the tourist thing when we felt like it.
We have told all our family and friends that one day we will revisit in a big group, see you then!

We had an amazing 5 day stay at the Bell and it was certainly the most enjoyable and relaxing hotel of our vacation. We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa and it was simply amazing, the design of the villa, pool and garden area couldnt be faulted. Stepping straight from the master bedroom into the 8m infinity pool was just fantastic. And then there is the "butler service", a dedicated team of extremely friendly staff who were always keen to help whenever possible, great.
There is no restaurant and all the food is prepared and brought to the villa, either for breakfast or from the in-room dinning menu, and arrives very quickly and tastes great.
We didnt have a rental car and the location is a bit remote requiring the use of the resorts free daily service or their paid service which is available whenever you want and not overly expensive, I would recommend a car if you want to explore more than just the beach locations though.
I would give 100% recommendation to anyone looking for a gorgeous, clean and relaxing villa in a quiet location away from the "highlights" of Kamala or Patong beach. All in all an amazing experience.

We stayed in Bell for 4 nights in 1st week of May. We were 2 families and each took one villa.
The service we got there was excellent. To be frank, I did not expect this high level of service . But right from airport pick-up to our villa stay to cleanliness to airport drop off, we did not get a chance of single complain.
The rooms were very clean and so was the pool. The staff were always at the door-step within a couple of minutes with a smile on their face - be it any time you call them for anything.
We liked the villa so much that we ended up spending 2 days in villa itself. The private pool especially came in handy after the tiring trip to Phi-2 island. By the way, I'd like to suggest to families here that the trip to Phi-2 island is not a must-2 as suggested by many travellers. You get few minutes only at each stop. Especially with kids, it becomes very troublesome. But that's my opinion, of course.
The tuk-tuk free service to Patong was very helpful too. It is 20-25 min drive to the Patong beach or to the main shopping area - Jungceylon.
The location of the villa is also very near to the Fantasea show.
The only suggestion I can offer to the villa management is that they can make the pool lighting better. Although again they made up here by arranging for candles all around the pool, but a permanent solution would be better.
Another one is that before handing over the villa to the guests, once you can run a check to remove all lizards and frogs from the garden area :)
Overall - a wonderful stay and I would love to visit it again!

Dear AishiSg,

I am very glad to hear you had a wonderful stay with us. Unfortunately I was not able to meet you personally but upon your next visit I'm sure that would not be a problem.
I will pass on the message to my team which should be a great motivation for them to continue improving the service.

Thank you, and we are looking forward to welcome you again to The Bell soon.

Wonderful Stay at The Bell Pool Villa Resort

When we arrived at the Phuket International Airport we were welcomed by our villa driver Troy who were waiting for us at the arrival area holding a placard with our name on it.
he then let us in and put our luggages in
the toyota fortuner with the Bell Pool Villa name printed all over the big black SUV,gave us a nice and cold,towel,water and flower too.
after 45 mins drive we finally arrived at Bell Pool Villa, very nice welcome at their lobby,Tooktai our butler lead us to our Villa.
oh after months of exchanging emails with them,they didnt dissapoint me everything i requested,i need was all there.
what i see is what we get....
they prepared and set up our lunch in our villa very Aunthentic Thai Food, taste really good.
then we had a lazy afternoon juz relaxing in the pool and around the villa.

The next morning the free breakfast was prepared on our villa the food was very good, we left our villa at half past 12 in the afternoon and Troy drove us to our next transfer that will bring us to our next destination ...Anantara sikao resort and spa in south of Krabi......
i would definitely recommend the Bell Pool Villa in Kamala to anyone who's interested to have a very private,unique and relaxing family or honeymoon getaway here in the Land of Smiles.
To everyone at Bell Phuket-

We stayed at the Bell for three nights in March and fell in love with it! It is literally the most amazing place we have ever stayed. Everything from the villa to the staff and even the location were perfect!

The villa itself is the most relazing gorgeous villa, and completely private. It wasnt until the last day that we saw any other people that were staying there....it is that quiet!!

I am not sure how people who have reviewed this place still find something to whinge about....the Breakfast was lovely (never cold), the beds while firm, gave me the best nights sleep of our whole holiday, the staff were always very friendly and obliging and the location is a plus to me.....not a negative. If you are staying at a place like the Bell you want to relax and stay away from the hustle and bustle, not whinge that it is too far away (its only a 5 minute ride to Kamala and about 15 minutes to Patong anyway).

The hotel also provides a free tuk tuk service to and from Kamala three times a day and to/from Patong twice a day. This made it easy & cheap to get around as long as you planned well. We would go into patong at night to eat/shop etc.The Bell also had free wifi which was great!

We got a great rate directly through the hotel. They matched a very cheap rate that i had seen on wotif.com that wasnt available for our stay but they still gave us the cheap rate. My partner and I will definately be coming back here for our honeymoon!

Thanks everyone at the Bell :-)

The pool villa was like a dream place. Personal pool, deck, sitiing area, living room and a bed room. Everything about this place was great except the distance from kamala beach and the premium to services they charge (like taxi). As it is far from the main road, they should provide basic amenities as regular prices
Breakfast was good and was served at the villa

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Bliss out at this heavenly retreat in Kamala Beach, Phuket. Short stays are unacceptable here - leave too early and you might miss your chance to fully immerse yourself in this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

It is a never-ending parade of indulgent perks just for you. There's plenty of activities to enjoy here too, pick up some cooking classes, participate in yoga sessions, or ask the resort to arrange day tours out to the gem-like islands of Thailand. A perfect honeymoon spot, it whisks you away from the dreary city to a sun-kissed paradise on the edge of the Andaman Sea. The entire property is hidden behind lush gardens, providing complete privacy while keeping you close enough to Kamala Beach and the bustling streets of Phuket. But don't just take it from us, reviews for the resort are outstanding, and the resort has also bagged a number of awards. It currently holds a TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice award and a Certificate of Excellence from 2016 and 2017, as well as awards from the World Luxury Hotel and Spa Awards.
