We have stayed in some of the top rated hotels in the world and we are not easy to please. It took us 2 months of research to find the hotel we thought was right for us in Phuket, had stayed at the Oriental in Bangkok then the Four Seasons in Chaing Mai, both good hotels but this one blew us away.
We had room 105 which is their best room, the views just cannot be described, worth every penny. The staff are just so well trained, the girls are elegant, courteous and anticipate your every need, the male staff cannot do enough for the guests as well. The staff to guest ratio was amazing. Food was consistently excellent, the beach has to be the best in the area, although there are no private beaches around this one is in a bay and the Chedi is at one end and Amanpuri at the other but you get no encroachment at all. After one day the staff remember what you like and deliver it, all low key and total focus on service and doing whatever they can to make your stay perfect.
They have 40% return guests, age profile was varied but some families with exceptionally well behaved children and some older couples that had been coming back for 20 years, everyone seemed to keep themselves to themselves which was wonderful.
If you are looking for a hotel in Phuket and are not price sensitive this is the one, Room 105 if you can get it, if not 103 - promise you will love it.
