“Private Paradise”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

This hotel is a perfect choise for ones who want to have a quiet stay in noisy Phuket. The area is secluded and the hotel itself is very relaxing and comfortable. There are a few nice restaurants around Kamala and cheap massage saloons as well. Hotel is in 40 minutes drive from the airport and 20 min from Patong Beach. Hotel provide free shuttle buses to Patong 3 times a day, but you can also rent a bike and drive there yourself.

The rooms are nice. Not like in the pictures... But o.k. A bit smelly,
The big problem is that they don't have a beach close. The beach is 12 min drive.
There are a lots of hotels just by the beach, so you can enjoy evening walk there,
And at any time jump to sweem and go back to your room, but here is a problam.
We rent a bike so we can be free to go to the beach and the town any time.
The resurant here is not so good as well. And you dont have alternative around unless you choose to drive or walk for 1/2 an hour.
The stuff is nice. The place is clean. We have been here for 6 days. Will not came back here...

We spent 8 days at this hotel as part of a "getaway" deal which included a dinner and an hour massage each. The room are clean, spacious with cable TV . Not that you will spend much time there as Phuket as so much to offer. Don't use the shuttle, go to Kamala, rent a scooter and be free!
The pools are big, clean and the staff is really friendly.
The massage included was amazing. Really relaxing.
For dinner, I would recommend going to the city,or just at "pooma" at the bottom of the hotel on the beach.
Overall a great deal, wish we could have get another week at the same rate.

There is a lot of good and some challenges with this place.
Staff, really nice people especially Nid in the restaurant and the singer and guitarist who played every night. They made our time
Location, at the top of a hill which makes for very good excise and sweat! It will cost you to get around unless you walk to kamala so you need to build that into the budget. They have free shuttles but timings aren't great
Room, typical style, abit worn but fine
Food, good but for some reason they main menu in the blue cafe is small. We asked to order from the room service menu which had heaps more Thai options and that was fine. Free brekkie was included and was ok. Some mornings was really busy as they had big bus loads of Korean tourists
Facilities, three pools which where all nice. Especially like the one by the cafe. We did the batik and vege carving classes. They where fine just a shame the teachers didn't speak great English so I don't think we got the most out of the classes. They have a mini mart which was handy as the nearest 7/11 was at the bottom of the hill. Prices what's you would expect for a hotel

We have just returned from our 8 day stay there - our observations are there is not enough free shuttle buses to Patong, only 1130 and 1730. It cost us 400-600 baht to get to Patong one way. After 8 days it cost $AUS250 in taxi fares!!. The taxis but not metered and you have to barter with them. There is a huge problem in Phuket with the taxis and their excessive charges. This is my second visit to Phuket and 8th to Thailand - I will not return to Phuket - very disappointed with the overall attitude and service on the island. The resort had excessive charges for laundry and internet access, the beds are extremely hard, and staff had poor command of English. The resort is isolated so you do need to use taxi's and there is not enough free shuttle buses. However, the views are lovely. Surin, Kata, Freedom and Karon Beaches are stunning - you are better off staying there.

I loved this resort. We had already been in Rawai for a week before we got here and we are about to check out after 12 nights. My days have predominantly consisted of long days by the pool gliding into two for the price of one cocktails at 3pm. I have very much enjoyed banter with the staff, who in typical Thai style, find fun in everything. Some reviewers have criticised the staff for not speaking their language - my suggestion to you is, have a holiday in your own country where there will be no language barrier. We took the opportunity to learn a couple of words of Thai, much to the delight of the locals.

What we loved: amazing views, fantastic pool area including swim up bar and big umbrellas. Great breakfast and restaurant. Shuttles to Kamala Beach and Patong. Little restaurant on the beach across the road, Poomah (meaning crab), they speak little English but lovely people.

People we loved: Pookkie in the restaurant, speaks good English and a very nice lady. Ton, a very quiet but lovely chef who cooked our eggs every morning. Make him smile, it's worth it. Mr Lilly, seek him out, you'll love him, housekeeping. The bell boys, we loved them all especially Mr Bean (nick name given by his colleagues because he makes mistakes :) housekeeping girls, so lovely and full of fun. New in reception, very friendly and helpful. The gardeners were always polite although we could only greet them as we don't speak enough Thai.

Problems we had that became opportunities to meet great people: air con broke down twice and repaired instantly, thank you Mr Lilly. Bed was too hard, mattress topper applied instantly. Locked ourselves on the veranda, beware of pressing the lock button when opening the door, thanks again Mr Lilly. As other reviewers have mentioned, this is not the place for the infirm or disabbled.

We look forward to returning one day.
