My husband and I stayed here on a six night stay through getaway lounge as part of our honeymoon in Thailand. This resort is beautiful looking and the swim up pool was excellent and we made good use of it during happy hour. The cocktails were delicious and cheap too. The pool was really lovely and there were 2 others to choose from which looked just as relaxing. The guys at the front bell captain desk were really friendly, funny and helpful.Now for the downside.....we confirmed our booking with the resort just like we did with another resort and gave our flight details etc and thought it was all finalised. We got to the airport and no one was waiting to pick us up. A rep from the Radisson offered to help us and call our resort and they told us that they hadn't organised a pick up and that we should just make our own way to the resort. Not a great start, but once we got there the staff were friendly and the resort looked great. Our room smelt quite over powering with a mouldy smell which made it difficult to sleep during the first few nights...it seemed to lesson over the time we were there. The bed was extremely hard and gave us both a sore back, however the pillows were pretty good. The 1.5 hr massage package we got as part of our package was absolutely awesome, we had got a few thai massages by the time we got to phuket, but this one was by far the best and just awesome. We would have loved to have more of them but they were quite expensive and we were running low on cash after all our shopping. The resort had a shuttle bus that went to Kamala beach and Patong, however they were only 4 times a day and we found this hard to fit in with our day if we had a tour or something organised that day and during our last 2 days we couldn't get seats on the shuttles because a large group was booking it out. There was no alternative offered to us, so it was left to us to find another way around. We found the location and the minimal shuttle bus time options very limiting during our stay. When it came to check out and we wanted to confirm that they were arranging us a transfer to the airport, there was again confusion and the staff had to check with other staff and we only had confirmation that they were going to order us a taxi 1/2hr before we had to leave for the airport. Overall, it's a lovely looking resort but the location and tired and uncomfortable rooms made this somewhere that we wouldn't return.
