“Second visit was even better!”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

This was our second visit to the Beyond and we loved it even more this year!

The hotel is quite possibly one of the most relaxing places I have ever stayed. I was chilled out and relaxed within minutes of our transfer arriving at the hotel. We were made to feel very welcome and lots of the staff commented on it being our second visit.

Villas are large and spacious and really comfortable. We opted for a Premier Palm Villa and loved the excellent location in row 15. It was great to get the VIP card which proved very welcoming in the hotel bar/restaurant and also gave a massive discount in the SPA. (Had a great massage which was excellent value and much nicer than being on the beach).

The pools are amazing and never very busy, so you never feel crowded. Its also a great area to sunbathe as its so peaceful and quiet without any children at the hotel.

Location is perfect and the beach wonderful. Lots of beach restaurants to choose from if you fancy a change from the hotel.

Also, this year I felt the level of English from the staff was much improved and many more staff members engaged in conversation - nice to see.

As per the previous review, a do not disturb sign would be welcomed for the rooms.

The Beyond is a little oasis in a beautiful part of Thailand. Already looking forward to visit number 3!

Room Tip: Book a Premier Palm Villa in rows 13, 14 or 15 for a great location near the pool.

Dear IANTOJONES

happy to read that you again had an enjoyable stay with us. Also glad to see that you feel the English level of the staff has improved.
As you correctly mention the VIP card does allow for splendid discounts in Restaurants and the Spa. For the next low season we will feature an All Inclusive option as well, probably in combination with the Palm Villa Premier the best arrangement.

We wish you a merry Christmas and a fantastic New Year coming up

Second time at the Beyond.

Once again had a fantastic time. The villa was large, comfortable and very clean.

Poolside is stunning. It is so peaceful that I barely used my iPod. The sound of the sea was all I needed. Plenty of sun loungers available and lots of shade.

The grounds are amazing. Wandered through other hotels further down the beach and their grounds were nothing compared to the Beyond. It is an oasis.

Had a massage in the spa this year. Very relaxing and good value with the VIP card.

Only improvements I would like to see for next years visit are matresses are on the sun loungers, do not disturb signs for the villas (the maid woke us up on 4 mornings) and abolish the hassle of Wifi codes. Also, we had to phone reception several times for the water in our mini bar to be replaced. These improvements are only small things, however, would make the Beyond Perfect.

Few new beach restaurants this year. They offer excellent food at incredible prices.

Looking forward to a third visit!

Dear Sansom1978

many thanks for your fantastic review of the resort. Very happy that your second visit was a good experience too.
We presently asking for lounger mats and hope to get them soon, but even without, the loungers are quite ok. Non-disturb signs, we look for a nice design too, not so easy with sliding doors.

Happy to see that you made use of your 40% discount at the Spa VIP Card. The new restaurants at the beach will only open during the high season and most will close May - October. This is why we will introduce an All Inclusive Package during this time, let our guests enjoy our 3 restaurants and 2 bars without thinking of pricing too much. Anyway ta the end of the day we have to compare apple to apple and even then we feel that our pricing is fair for the standard of resort we provide.

Looking forward to have you back soon

Robert, I did promise a review so here it is.
I stayed at this hotel in November and I really do hope to go back again. It is the most peaceful and lovely place. The staff are very pleasant and attentive, the food is amazing, the rooms are superb, so big and spacious, I couldn’t believe how big the bed was. The breakfast menu is so extensive; everything you could possibly want is available. Buffet evenings at the beach are a truly sumptuous delight, the food is beautifully presented and very tasty, and there is always plenty. Cocktails at the swim up bar are a real treat as it the pool itself. The beach is lovely and you can walk right along it for some distance if you feel like a walk after breakfast. Everywhere is spotlessly clean, what more can I say, but try it you won’t be disappointed.

Room Tip: There isnt a bad one

Hi missymac,

Many thanks for leaving your holiday thoughts on TA. I am very happy to see that the Beyond was a good experience for you. I trust that with the next low season special All Inclusive offer the resort will be pretty full all year round and our guests and enjoy their cocktails all day without looking after their spending's anymore. I trust we will have lots of fun....

Again, many thanks and Merry Christmas

This is our second time back at Beyond Resort and our sixth time back in Phuket. The resort is really beautiful, even more beautiful the second time: it was like we slipped straight back into the relaxed state we left in in 2012. We arrived in the reception foyer after a day travelling to find the Resort Manager Robert and the Client Services Manager Danielle waiting for us because they had made it their business to know what time we were arriving. They even took the time to sit with us, give us fresh fruit and a drink to cool off while our check in was handled and our bags whisked away to our rooms.

Our villa was very well maintained, twice the size of any we had previously stayed at in Phuket, clean, light and modern with very comfortable beds and light, luxurious linen. The facilities at the resort are maintained to the same high standard, with a gym, luxurious spa, beautiful restaurant and great beach bar and cafe. The food was fabulous with plenty of variety in all the restaurant menus and great service by the staff.

One of the other things that I love about this resort is that is an adults only resort. Last time we took a group away for a conference we had more than 60 kids in and around the pool area. At Beyond Resort the pool area is so peaceful, no kids splashing and running around spoiling the relaxing atmosphere for our clients who are with us for time to unwind and reflect on their year and to get rested and ready for the next one.

The level of care is such that when we arrived at the Beach Cafe the first night the staff remembered us from last year, and we arrived at breakfast the next morning to find more staff who not only remembered us, they remembered what we drank for breakfast and who had their coffee before and after their food. I was stunned at this level of service.

The management team treated our clients as well as they treated us. Nothing was too much trouble and they got to know our clients personally as well.

With such awesome service, stunning surrounds the Beyond Resort Khaolak is well and truly 'beyond' any other we have stayed at - we look forward to our return next year.

Our second visit, even better than last year. The pool area is as good as it gets, and the ocean is just 30 meters away.

The food is very good, and has been varied among styles over the week. The rooms are also very nice, and the staff is just super friendly and helpful.

For a romantic and luxurious paradise fantasy getaway, this is the place!

I love the Beyond Resort in Khaolak!

Every year I take a group of clients away on a high end seminar. These are our VIP clients so it is really important that the holiday is spectacular. We have never been to the same resort twice until we discovered Beyond Resort. This is the second year in a row we have been and we are so glad we went again. We are even going to take two groups next year it is so good!

The resort is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and stunning, the food incredible and the service is of the highest level. They even remembered how I have my coffee 12 months after I was last there!
Robert and his team at Beyond take such great care of us that we can't wait to go back!! We are even designing a second trip for each year so that we can come back sooner!!! The amenities and service at the resort for normal guests are wonderful but they are also excellent for our conference. Nothing is too much trouble for the team and they are so gracious and helpful.

This is a business trip for us and the resort and their team make us look good to our clients. It doesn't get better than that. As a business decision we must go back because they make us look so good!! I recommend the Beyond Resort Khaolak to anyone who wants a first class holiday.
