My partner and I had the pleasure of staying at Andaman White Beach resort for 6 nights on our first trip to Phuket. After reading reviews on TA, we were left quiet certain about what to expect, and we can say that the resort lived up to our expectations.
Yes, it was quite isolated but as we were looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday, that didn’t bother us. We found it to be breathtakingly beautiful! We still managed to leave the resort three times to visit other places, at our own expense but transport was easily organised through reception and we didn’t find it that expensive.
From the moment we arrived we were treated as special guests, firstly being greeted by a cool lemongrass drink and cold wet towel to help the hot and weary travellers and then being surprised by an upgrade to a hotel room with a plunge pool at the managers discretion, which we didn’t expect. We were delighted as although we were right by the water’s edge, the sea was far too choppy for swimming so we enjoyed being able to dip in our own private pool as we pleased.
Other pleasantries included complimentary water bottles as needed, complimentary fruit by the pool each afternoon consisting of the local fruits – mangosteen, rambutan, mango, bananas and logans. We both looked forward to this time of the day as an appetizer to the half price cocktails before dinner!
We rotated our meals between each of the three onsite restaurants which satisfied whichever of our gastronomical whims whether it be casual pizza at the downstairs beachfront pizzeria or traditional Thai cuisine upstairs at the open air restaurant which also served us a delicious buffet breakfast (also complimentary) each morning. There was also a poolside restaurant where you could have any type of meat or fish barbequed to your taste. There was also the option of having delicious fruity juices delivered to our beach cabana after putting the ‘little green flag’ out!
All the staff were very friendly, always ready with a smile and couldn’t do enough to help. No, the English wasn’t great, but we were always understood. Learning to say ‘hello’ and ‘thank-you’ in Thai also helped in gaining some extra interaction from the staff. We also appreciated the invite to the manager’s midweek cocktail evening on the beach where we shared cocktails, canapés and got to meet and talk with the manager as well as some of the other staff – it was a nice touch! Another special touch was allowing us to stay by the pool and use the showers after our check out as our flight didn’t leave until later in the day. This allowed us to enjoy the resort up until the very last minute!
Overall, we couldn’t compliment the staff at Andaman Resort enough. We enjoyed our stay so much we would not hesitate in going back. The quality of facilities, cleanliness and overall atmosphere is commendable.
