“Great secluded resort with excellent ambiance”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We spent 2 nights here, we wish we had at least stayed 2 more. We really enjoyed our stay. The room was a fantastic cottage with an amazing amount of room overlooking the water. The bathroom was seriously nice with a large tub and an outdoor shower as well. We had no complaints whatsoever. The food was very good as well, service was impeccable and the staff were in general very kind. Their pool and resort grounds were cool too. It has to be said thst the beach was not stunning, the sea became too shallow early in the morning. Also it was absolutely not crowded which we found to be a positive. All in all we really enjoyed it and would definitely consider a return for a longer stay. Recommended in particular for couples.

I spent 8 days in this paradise. The Vila was superb, the staff delightful (nothing was too much trouble) and the food excellent. The setting is also delightful. The Vilas are on a steep hill, but for anyone who has difficulty walking to the pool or the restaurant the buggy is available to pick up and drop off. The spa is also heavenly. There are also free shuttle bus trips available to the shops, beaches etc. I recommend the private pool villas, nothing better than falling into the pool first thing in the morning (although it's not for fitness freaks, but there's always the big pool for you). I will be going back.

My partner and I stayed at the Vijitt resort from late July to early Aug 2012 and had the most amazing holiday! The staff could not have been more helpful (provided wireless Internet router, booked tours for us, arranged bookings for the courtesy bus, even provided a softer mattress for a fussy sleeper). In regards to some of the earlier negative comments- if you have any problems or concerns all you need to do is speak to the amazing staff who will sort it out on the spot. We were a little worried after reading some of the not so positive comments, but I can honestly say the resort was beautiful- best holiday! (Before we booked we were also a tad worried about how far away the resort was from the biggers towns, however the resort provides a brilliant curtesy bus- we only ended up getting a taxi a handful of time- all under 500 baht). Beautiful food, beautiful people- wonderful holiday!

Just got back from a short break at Vijit. i hope readers would find this review helpful.

Positives:
Beautiful setup, nice sea view, not crowded with visitors, very relaxing atmosphere, most of the staff are friendly. Bungalow nicely decorated. Kids swimming pool and playroom available.

Negatives:
The bungalow we stayed had far too many insects which is irritating: ants everywhere, mosquitos, flies and even cockroaches. My children had mosquito bites all over their face and body! I understand this is a tropical area but of the other places that i have been to I found the problem less serious. the hotel could do a better job in pest control.

High tide in the morning means the beach will not be accessible. When the water retreat in the afternoon, the shore turns to be a swamp which i think is not safe for the kids. If you really like beach, this is not your place.

Breakfast quality : Only average. I know we shouldnt expect too much of the hotel breakfast but its the same stuff every morning! Again there are flies all over the buffet area which reduces your appetite.

I found the room especially the floor not very clean but ok its not the end of the world.

The place is a bit far from the Phuket nightlife. If you are someone who has to go out every night this is not a suitable place for you.

Before coming to this place we stayed 5 nights at Swissotel Phuket and 3 nights at JW Marriott Phuket, but unfortunately only got to stay 2 nights at this place. How we wish it could have been different!

Negatives: The breakfast selection was poor compared to the other hotels we stayed in, though the ambiance and view were great. JW Marriott had by far better food, but it was stressful and busy.Here you'll sit overlooking the ocean while served by friendly Thai staff. Hey; I just turned a small negative into a positive!

Other than that, we both enjoyed a great Thai massage in the spa. While a bit more expensive than what you'd pay in local Thai massage places outside the hotel, the lady who served us was fantastic. While you may be lucky and get someone great at a 300 bath per hour massage place, try this spa and compare the difference!

Our kids enjoyed both the kids' pool and the kids' club, though the pool at JW Marriott had more exciting features like a slide and so on. The 2-year-old also enjoyed riding the carts that bring you around the property, though walking is not a problem if you want a little exercise.

Overall, if you're looking for a relaxing vacation in a beautiful spot, then consider this property. While we did not try eating outside the hotel due to our young kids, you can easily leave the resort and explore the local area (which we could not easily do at JW Marriott).

Room Tip: Prices vary per location. I believe the cheapest rooms are furthest away from the restaurant and don...

The pictures do not do the resort justice!!!! The villas as beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. The views from the room I stayed in was surreal we could see a island amongst tropical trees. The staff are friendly keen to help and always smiling. The resort offered a free trip to coral island which is worth the trip, you have your own part of the beach, a well trained tours catering to your needs and courteous. We went as a group of seven therefore had our needs mets above and more! Would definitely go back completely worth every penny spent!!! Don't know what to choose from the buffet breakfast something new every morning with lots of fresh fruit and juices!!

Room Tip: Prime villa is great value for money with own pool!

We live 5 minutes walk from this hotel but we stay there atleast 3 times a year for a few days . This hotel is absolutely amazing. The rooms , villas , pool , restaurant , room service , staff , the area and the view is just all one of a kind!!
The best place to chill out specially for an occasion like honey moon birthday or anniversary is just the best place to be.
Thank you to all the staff for being so wonderful and helpful , will definatly see you guys soon :-)
