The Vijitt Resort Phuket
Ranked #4 of 43 Hotels in Rawai
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 14, 2014

The Vijitt is absolutely amazing. Service is great. It starts with a very professional and friendly reception at check-in, with the receptionist escorting you to your villa in a resort buggy. Although some waiters and waitresses are not the most professional, they all seem sincerely warm-hearted, something that you find less of these days in Thailand. Breakfast buffet is very extensive and great. The resort is awesome with stunning views. Villas are perfectly situated in a lush garden on a slope directly on the beach in SE Phuket (Rawai). The rooms are very decorated with a sense for detail. There are several pools – the main one being so large that it actually makes sense to swim laps for fitness (with saltwater, which is a much better option for the skin).

Good activities for kids – kids’ club for the smaller ones, and daily sports and cultural activities for the somewhat bigger ones. The beach is more interesting from a marine biology perspective then from a lazy sun seeker’s point of view; I've seen more beautiful beaches on Phuket, but this one provides several hours of study material for curious kids. If you like exploring Phuket a little, I would recommend renting a car (also since there are not many restaurants in the vicinity). There are shuttle services from the hotel to some key places of interest, but a car gives you the flexibility to stick to your own schedule.

Although I have talked about kids – I can imagine that the place would be perfect for a honeymoon, too. The resort was definitely designed with privacy and tranquility in mind.

Me and fiancée just got back from 2 amazing weeks at the Vijitt Resort Phuket ..

As soon as we arrived at the Vijitt we we're greeted by the staff who were so professional and welcoming, then a ride in a golf buggy down to our beautiful deluxe villa.
The villa was very spacious clean and had everything you could ask for and to top this off it was stunning.
We settled in with a quick shower before heading down for lunch and once again the Vijitt did not disappoint the food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious and the cocktails were lovely very tropical with lots of choices. During our meal the staff couldn't do enough for us they were very friendly and efficient and this level of service continued throughout our stay in all aspects of the resort . Me and my fiancée would like to give a special thanks to Tham / James / Jhabi / Noi who added a special touch to the resort with there kindness and friendliness always taking the time to say hello and ask how our days had been its staff like this that make a resort.

I would highly recommend anyone to stay here the pool is beautiful they beach is quiet with plenty of loungers and a few hammocks it goes without saying that the Vijitt Resort Phuket was everything we could have asked and more it truly is a paradise

Thanks again to all the staff

We just spent 6 nights in the Vijitt, and we both loved it. It was very reasonably priced when we booked and with the added extras (we drank, had a few meals, transfers etc...) the overall bill was really respectable.

The positives
- quite location
- bus shuttle service is excellent, take full advantage
- amazing pool
- excellent food (include breakfast - it's awesome)
- great staff
- wifi everywhere
- happy hour cocktails need to be taken advantage of

The negatives
- rock hard beds (typical for Thailand outside of Starwood)
- beach is very tidal so only swim at high tide
- don't expect to walk down the road for a meal, you will need the shuttle or taxi

I loved this hotel and would highly recommend. I read tripadvisor before I left and the complainers were way of the mark!!!

Great for couples or even those with a little one

Room Tip: The villas are awesome but pricey. Sea view rooms are tip top - awesome for sun rise

An ideal place and atmosphere for doing nothing but hanging outside by the pool or the little beach. I needed a cozy place to switch off and reload, him here i went, here i will go again.
The staff is extremely friendly, the two restaurant are okay+ and the spa is simply great.

on the minus column let me just stated that the breakfast buffet is banal - vapid

but over all it worth crossing the whole peninsula

Room Tip: we had the villa just above the restaurant and it was very convenient

We just came back from a relaxing stay at Vijitt. Here are some thoughts:

Firstly, the hotel grounds is huge and well maintained. There are actually a lot of villa units but they are well placed so you get a very quiet and peaceful atmosphere. One downside from such a huge compound is that it is difficult to walk from the villas to the lobby/spa/restaurant. However, they do provide buggy service which you can call from your room. Or alternatively you can request for those villas closer to the restaurant/swimming pool.

The beach at the hotel is not amazing, but we chose it for the swimming pool and so we did not mind. It is a nice pool to lounge and we spent quite some time just relaxing by the pool.

The service from the hotel is great. They tried to accommodate all our requests, including getting us transports to visit places outside the hotel and providing various bug sprays for the mosquitoes.

The hotel is far away from the city centre/Patong area. So I would recommend to choose this only if you don't mind being away from the hustle bustle. If you are looking to relax within nice surroundings, then this would be the place for you.

Room Tip: If you are choosing a sea-view room, do try to request for villas 23-25 as they provide better views...

We stayed here during February 2014 and it was amazing. We stayed in the sea view villas and it is well worth the extra money. Staff friendly and everything went seamless. There are nice things to do at the resort as at any resort in Phuket but the views are just amazing. It is on the East of Phuket so it does not have the prettiest beach, but you can rent a scooter with the resort and get yourself to the beaches on the West. Will recommend to anyone wanting to stay in Rawai.

Room Tip: Go for the sea view villas and pay the extra amount if possible, It really changes the experience

Dear BunkerLeech,

Thank you for your note on TripAdvisor while recently stayed at The Vijitt Resort Phuket.

We learn that while staying with us, you were enjoy your visit and service. The comments on our Friendship Beach is not as nice as the other side of Phuket. The hotel provide shuttle bus to Nai Harn Beach several time per day, Promthep Cape to see the sunset as well as trip to Patong and Central Festival.

The benefit from the tidal beach is, there is no any motor scooter or any engine on the beach to disturb our guests thus, all of them will have a good rest and relax on our garden and beach as well as no one selling things to bother you.

Again, thank you for being with us and look very forward to having you back home away from home again soon.

With my best wishes,
