We stayed at the Amari in Oct for 8 nights. Fantastic location beautiful views of the bay from the rooms in this hotel, it is truly beach front, we stayed in a superior room which has the most comfy beds and pillows. The bathroom is small and there is no ipod dock in the room, who cares ! rooms where clean and comfortable. When we come back to Amari I would stay in the recently refurbished deluxe rooms .
There are 2 lovely pools which again have the awesome views. also comfy sun beds huge towels. cocktails by the pool ahh wish i was there now. My husband did visit the gym and said it was well equipped for weights and cardio machines treadmill and stepper .
We dined at the buffet breakfast which is what you expect egg station , cereals, Thai cuisine pastry's to name but a few. There is a Thai restaurant and Italian both where very good.

Location of hotel is superb far enough out of the hustle and bustle of Patong but very walk able 10 mins and you are in reach of restaurants bars massage shopping. I would say this hotel is not suitable for pushchairs wheelchairs or for people who dont like to walk. The hotel is built into a hill it has lots of steep steps. There are elevators . keeps you fit. I do think the hotel could operate a courtesy shuttle!! tuk tuks can become expensive which is 200 baht anywhere in Patong .
Getting out and about is very easy the hotel has a very helpful tour desk in the hotel lobby.
Overall fantastic hotel Thanks for a great stay.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights during February and overall I had a fantastic time. The lobby was extremely spacious and had the most incredible view of the ocean. I was welcomed with a refreshing drink and very friendly staff. I stayed in a standard room with two single beds. It's a little outdated and the bathroom isn't particularly stunning either, but the beds were very comfortable. The pools and restaurants are a few minutes walk away from the reception and it can be quite easy to get lost. As for the restaurants, the buffet breakfast makes the best banana and strawberry smoothies. I would go back just for that drink! The only slight downside to this hotel is the location. It's at the very edge of Patong City at the top of a small mountain. Quite a trek if you're walking, so probably best to hire a scooter. Overall I had a great time, the staff were very friendly and extremely helpful when it came to booking tours.

We won our stay at this beautiful hotel last November and it was perfect in everyway. Their attention to detail was fantastic down to a birthday card and cake in our room on my birthday. I would certainly go back and feel gutted that I won't be spending my birthday there this year

Room Tip: All the rooms have a sea view

Firstly, i loved the location for this hotel, because its a bit furthur away from the actual Patong City.
it is situated on hill side with lots pf privacy away from the city.
i loved the Italian resturant with provides absolute fresh superb seafood! the spa is a MUST!! i also love the fact that the local culture is allowed in this hotel, you can walk down to the beach and get a massage done by the local villages! nails and hair done too :) the rooms are very clean and well equiped. its such a lovely hotel to stay at, swimming by the pier and sipping a cocktail there is a must! Generally all Thai staff are friendly and so pleasant and hard working.. i loved this hotel and would reccommend it to all..!!

The hotel is got a great view i must admit. But however it is shocking how the staff function in the hotel. We had asked the front desk to give us a wake up call by 8o clock in the morning with a cab ready for the airport. They refused to call us because they wanted to check the minibar. I still dont understand a hotel that is charging a decent amount of money for staying with them, would refuse giving you a wake up call just cause they want to check the mini bar. We almost missed our flight. We also had a few lizards that checked into the room we were in.

You expect quality if you are paying such a big amount of money. I can assure you hotel Amari Coral Beach at Phuket would prove that wrong.

There is only so much the location and the ambiance can serve you. At the end of it all if the entire process doesn't end well especially being in the service industry, they need to rethink their motto.

Room Tip: Please check the room and under the beds if you aint checking in with lizards in. !!!

Thank you for sharing your review and please accept my sincerest apologies for the disappointment you experienced.

Although I am appreciative of your positive comments about our location and views, I feel that we have let you down with the front desk service and the check out process. Subsequent to your kind review, front desk team members were debriefed for improvement in this area.

Once again, thank you for sharing your experience with us. I hope that we can have the opportunity to welcome you back to our resort in the future.

Yours Sincerely,

Warakorn Jarusirikul

Great location just away from the main beach strip, well equipped rooms all with views over the beautiful bay. Great swimming pool area + the smaller pool is quieter and equally as relaxing. The main hotel lobby bar has a great view over the bay, the restaurants do great offers - with a good range of food, the breakfast buffet is really good, with friendly smiley staff, and the bars do cocktails at half price during happy hours!
£2 taxi fare into the main beach area which has a lots of restaurants and loads of bars with scantily clad ladies on poles, pumping music, footie on sat TV - a good night out if you like that sort of thing!

Room Tip: all the rooms have great views - the lower floors are right next to the beach
