Reviewed July 11, 2013

Love this hotel has it all, friendly staff, greatest pool and the breakfasts are wonderful.
Make sure you get a seaview room they are the best in the hotel, with a view which is to die for.
Nice and quiet hotel in Kamala, away from the hustle and bustle of Patong.

Room Tip: Seaviw rooms are the best to get, with great views of the bay and Kamala beach

We returned once again to the Aquamarine and are staying here on our 3rd night out the 10 we had booked. What can I say? just excellent...
The staff are all new to us from the last two times we stayed but nothing has changed much at all, and that is a good thing! really friendly people and we got an upgrade just by asking and they remembered us as well so that is a hot tip... mention that you have stayed before and they will really look after you.
We even got invited to their VIP cocktail party which was an absolute wonderful time and allowed us and other guests to meet and socialise. Very well thought of and the management all made the effort to meet and greet the guests and get to know them. Well done Aquamarine.
The villa is just beautiful with an amazing view of the ocean and the surroundings. So lovely to be up on the hill amongst the trees and flowers...really peaceful and so quiet. The standars of the rooms is great for the tropics as one can get a musty smell at times from the rooms being closed up and air con on all the time but hey, no big deal for us as they provide a lemon grass oil burner and if all else fails plug in the mozzie zapper provided, smells great!
Clean room and well kept by the super efficient maids.
Restaurant still very good and yes, more expensive than other places but we have arrived in the very wet season and it has poured down, so the thought of spending the extra money on a taxi you may as well stroll down and just eat nice food here... each to their own I guess...
All in all, we are so glad to have returned, just wonder why we have not been for so long.
I can not recommend this place enough, it is just great for a peaceful and relaxing time away from the hassle and tack of Patong but close enough to go if you wish to... as we did often.
Taxi to Patong is 400 Baht each way...gone up since we last visited.
Any questions please feel free to get in touch.
Cheers

Room Tip: Ask for available upgrades at check in, they will do a great deal for you if they can. As returning...

This was our 2nd stay to Aquamarine, and was impressed by the same great service standard.
Though resort was bit distance from Patong, but it was at a peaceful location. There is shuttle service to Patong to & fro, 3 times a day. Room is spacious, able to squeeze in 2 adults and 2 older children. The view is fantastic, great sea-view. You have to walk up to the room though if you prefer higher sea-view. My children loved the pool as well. During our stay, we were treated to a cocktail reception hosted by its Assistant GM, Mr Poole. Definitely made our trip in Phuket an enjoyable for our family. Keep it up, Aquamarine..........hoping to return soon......

Three different pools. Very close to the beach with free shuttles to both Kamala and Patang Beach each day. We came at off-season, so through Agoda we got out hotel 60% off. Great price, wonderful service. It was the perfect relaxing hotel. The food wasn't wonderful, but there are many restaurants in the Kamala beach area.

Room Tip: Pretty much all the rooms were quiet. They have double blinds which helps to sleep in!

It was a special stay at Aquamarine resort for my honeymoon. The service with amenities provided was mind blowing. The pool and the cleanliness was great with excellent location away from busy life. Gud spa, daily trips to Pathong beach and nightlife. Worth staying. Wish to be back.

The pools were lovely and the room was nicer than I expected - and had a great view of the pool and the sea. Breakfast by the pool was very romantic and refreshing in the day, and the staff were very helpful. We rented motorbikes and I had difficulty driving it up the slope to the hotel and eventually the security guards at the bottom of the slope recognised me and helped me drive it up every time I came back.

I was expecting a 3 and a half star experience but was delivered a four star+ one, which makes me a very happy customer. Aquamarine definitely feels like a resort and not a hotel trying to live up to the resort tag. There's a choice of 3 pools - all equally gorgeous in their own right and fringed by trees almost within arms reach. Don't overlook the smallest dipping pool. Positioned on the main road out of town, the 15-20 minute walk to kamala beach is well worth the peace and quiet. At 5.30am in the lobby, you can hear the waves crashing across the road and little else. If you don't fancy walking to town you can take the regular hotel shuttle (note the first one doesn't leave until 11am, so be prepared to walk or taxi it if you don't want to breakfast at the hotel. I walked to the kamala beach resort for breakfast each day, as I thought the aquamarine resort buffet was overpriced and not as good). Drinks are expensive, but with two staggered 'happy hours', you can time your cocktail consumption to a reasonable budget, as I did! Highly recommend kicking back in the open air lobby propped up with cushions over a pina colada. There is such a large staff I couldn't generalise about service, but absolutely definitely no complaints. Oh, the assistant manager did stand out. He personally welcomed me to the restaurant most nights and coudl be seen chatting regularly with other guests and enquring after their stay. As for my room, I stayed in a seaview deluxe room close to reception. Views still great from this level. Typically thai furnishings and a rather firm bed. My only complaint about the room was the sour smell coming from the bathroom plumbing at very irregular times.

Room Tip: Deluxe sea view room close to reception
