Nothing else to say: This place is perfect. Beautiful, quiet, perfect service, wonderful team, you have a driver (included!), so you can get to every spot on the island. Wipa and her team take care of everything, just ask.

We booked a 3 bedroom villa during the new year holiday, The hotel is a perfect option for family stay and the service is great. it's a bit far from the beach. However, with the complimentary shuttle service you could easily access to every corner of the town. My mother in law got bone injuried just before we checked in, The hotel owner offered a lot of helps and the whole family really enjoyed our stay there. Thanks a lot, the rising star is definitely our top choice when we visit phuket next time.

This review has been overdue, my family stayed for a week, and upon arrival my children felt at home immediately. The layout of the one bedroom villa which we stayed was great and it has everything that we need. Love walking out to the pool and going everywhere with personal chauffeur. Wipa is a delight to know and attending her cooking class was the
Best thing I did on the trip. I could make Thai dishes now at home.

Love everything abt the villa and the lady who housekeep
And
Bring our breakfast every morning is so cheerful and hardworking, she deserves a special mention. I forgot her name , she greets us every morning with such bright smile.

We just came back from a fabulous holiday from Phuket Thailand, where we stayed at The Rising Sun Residence. This is the best place to be when you want to relax in your own private villa with a stunning view at Phuket Town. It is a quiet , beautifull and well maintained small resort with other guests that, just like you, enjoy the silence with just the sound of a colourfull bird. If you want to leave your swimming pool for a day and go the beach, you can choose out of many at just a 10 minutes drive. And for evening pleasure the village of Patong, is the heart of shopping and entertainment. For a special experience go to Rawai where you buy your own fish and have it cooked in the restaurant nearby or for dinner at home Wipa's Restaurant serves you the best Thai dishes desired. Enjoy.

This is the first time I visit Phuket, and I'm so regretted I didn't book this place from start to end of my vacation.
Overall:
The owner Wipa and her staff are so passionate and treat every guests from deep of their hearts, as we all know ppl do smile to you when u stay at their hotel but Wipa and her staff's smile is the most deep-from-heart smile I ever see while my stay, it really warmed my heart too, u can truly feel their welcome toward to you. This is the biggest advantage that even a 5 star hotel/resort can not compare with them.

Room type:
One bed room villa

Facility:
Home to home facilities in the villa, espresso machine, refrigerator, changing room, TV with 100+ channel, cups, dishes, everything u ever need at home, oh! And the clothes hanger!!!(this one surprised me)

Breakfast:
Seriously, yes, 5 star hotel provides many kind of breakfast choices and but u have to go their restaurant and line-up to wait or getting the seat u don't want and it's not really u want sometimes. In here, not many choices yet, but its all what you really need fruits, eggs, breads, ham, sausage, bacon(I love their crispy bacon), juices, milk, tea, coffee, congee(3 kinds), yogurts and most important thing is u have ur own private time to enjoy breakfast with you love one together, looking out the sunshine weather one through the door and jump into the pool right after breakfast. The leftover breakfast will be kept in the refrigerator for u to have later. Not the 5 star food but very understanding/warm guest service!!!

Complimentary:
9 hours driver among yourside stand-by taking you anywhere in Phuket, specially the driver, although he can speak English very well, but he tried to explain where we are, what's the place, the name of attraction every time he service us, this is very hard for a driver doing this extra service, and you can feel he is super kind friend and nice person!!!
Unlimited bottled water, unlimited coffee, daily various fruits.

For all readers, you can refer to all previous reviews to find out more about this place, but you will never feel how their passionate is if u don't stay here, come if u get a chance to visit Phuket, Rising Sun Residence won't let you down!!!

This is the most relax vacation I ever have because of Rising Sun residence.

From our initial enquiry right through to being dropped off at the airport when we left was superb. We stayed in one of the 3 bedroom villas, which was spotless, beautifully furnished and extremely spacious. Excellent outside and pool area with several lounging and seating options. Breakfast, served in your villa at your requested time was always very good, and if you opt for evening meal to be served in your villa, you certainly have a treat in store. The driver and car available for 9 hours daily is incomparable. Sure, it's best to liaise with front desk to ensure that everyone knows where they are going, but where's the difficulty in that? The driver was always waiting where he said he would meet us after we had visited monuments, or been shopping, etc. etc.
Our free massage was gratefully (and painlessly!) undertaken, our free dinner was deliciously superb, as were meals in Wipa's Kitchen, free wi-fi worked quickly, and best of all, all the staff looked happy!
Rising Sun Residence really should be the first place to check out if you are looking to stay in Phuket.

We were staying at the 1-bedroom villa with 1 big bed and separate living/dining area. There are too many windows around the dining area/room so we are keeping the curtain closed all the time to have some privacy, as each villa is quite close to one another.

The hotel location is in a secluded location, and in an uphill location. So to go out the main street, it will take around 15 ~ 20 minutes walk, and to top up another 5 minutes to walk from the villas to the receptionist, but usually we will just ask the front desk staff to come over to our villa. The hotel does provide 9 hour free transportation + driver everyday, but the traffic in Phuket is quite bad at times, so 9 hours is not really that useful to go to a lot of places.

The hotel is located quite near to some nice resturants, like Tung Ka on top of the hill, Kan Eang beside the sea, and also nearby to the shopping mall Central Festival and also near to some other supermarket like Big C, Tesco Lotus, and other attractions like Wat Chalong and Big Buddha.

The driver sometimes does not speak good English, so the day plan has to be worked out with the front desk in the morning, so the front desk can tell the driver where to go. The driver was really patient as we walked around Phuket. Had him waited for a few hours while we went to the night market, to the shopping mall, and also visiting the temples.

The washroom is big and spacious, with a bathtub and separate shower area, one washbasin.
Some 'Singha' drinking water is also provided as complimentary but it just taste a bit weird. I wish they can provide normal bottled water as complimentary in the room. The WiFi (Internet) is also complimentary in the hotel area, and it is surprisingly fast.

The breakfast is served in the villas, where we can decide on a time and the hotel staff would drop by and prepare the breakfast. The breakfast choice is quite limited for the price we are paying but to provide the transport + driver as complimentary is really nice.
