Holiday Inn Resort Phi Phi Island

Reviewed June 2, 2014

This hotel has an excellent location with its own beach which you could snorkeling, kayaking, swimming or just stay there do nothing. Hotel provides free snorkeling equipments include everything (this is great !), kayak for free (1 hour every day) .
And the sunset bar should be a must-see for each and every hotel guest. It is a gorgeous view for sunset.

It is an expensive hotel but the beach and snorkeling worth it. Breakfast is great but lunch and dinner soon get tiring as there are not too many options.

Room Tip: Be sure to visit the sunset bar !

We arrived at the holiday inn resort at around midday, the staff were quite happy to let us check in early. They took our bags and shown us to our room which was on the back row near the gardens. I thought it was going to be far away from the beach, but it was literally a minute walk if that. The beach was amazing! This is where we chilled out for our 3 day stay. It was very clean and very quite. There were activities you could do that the hotel arranged for you. But we did not do any of these. The buffet breakfast was very nice a good selection of foods but we found it expensive. We booked it on arrival and it was 400 TB per person and if you just turned up on the day it was over 500 TB per person. But what could you do? There were a few other restaurants on the beach but only a few and we didn't find them much cheaper. That's the only bad point I would say is that the food is too expensive. There is 2 pools but we didn't use either as we were there for the beach and it's amazing green coloured sea, but I would say that the pool did look more dated than the pictures give off. The rooms were very nice all in your own bungalow hut. The bed was comfy and spacious and the aircon was good too. The bathroom was clean and the shower was ok. It lacked a bit of power. Just be aware that this hotel is on the other side of the island from the ferry port and you have to pay 1,500 TB for a long tail boat to take you to the hotel. This was an expense we didn't know about which was pretty annoying and the same price back.

Room Tip: Don't worry about paying the extra Money for a hut overlooking the sea. Trees are in the way any...

We stayed there using reward points, but also asked about the prices of the room we stayed in, so I can say those basic rooms are absolutely not worth the money.

Ok, location is nice, staff was nice.

But, have a look at the photos and judge for yourselves. That vase is the empty vase with old water that was left in our room :( And I've had this kind of shower in the cheapest accommodation in Thailand.

You will get the same level of quality for less money in Phi Phi Natural Resort on the other side of the bay.

Others mentioned restaurants nearby that are good value for money, and we agree. Bring lots of your own drinks and snacks since even in the local store these things are rather expensive.

My wife and I spent 3 nights here again after getting engaged here 2 years ago. Nice place to relax, there is an adults only pool to escape to which now has food and beverage service which was missing last time we stayed. Lovely rooms and the sunset bar is great too. Good chance we will be back

Room Tip: Beachfront bungalows are great or a room near the adult pool is much quieter

The hotel is located in a privileged part of the island, the beach is reserve for the clients of the hotel so you are almost alone. The facilities of the hotel are very nice and the provide a free service of Kayaking and snorkeling.

The rooms are a bit old, specially the toilets/showers need to be refurbished as they are not well isolated from outside and it is really hot inside the toilet and full of mosquitoes.

The breakfast has a very wide range of options and the timetable are pretty flexible.

The access to the hotel is not very easy but is worth it.

Room Tip: The best located rooms are the ones facing the seeside, and a bit far away from the main reception b...

It is out the way, own beach, which has entertainment every evening eg. Dancing to flame/fire throwing. You definitely pay for what you get but it is amazing! From the service to the bungalow. It is the best place I have ever been. Everyone is so helpful and friendly. The pool was beautiful, the gym even had a vibe plate!!

My diving buddy and I stayed 2 weeks in this very beautiful hotel. Originally we only chose it because of its Diving Center Sea Bees. But it turned out to be just the perfect choice for everything.

Nice and comfortable rooms with view, very clean, water cooker and tea and coffee, fresh towels every day, shampoo etc., all you could think about. Breakfast was delicious with a very friendly service, 2 swimming pools, very effective and friendly staff, great beach, nice scenery, lovely sunset bar, good restaurants with delicious food, gorgeous spa treatments, well, I could just enumerate what so ever, as everything was just perfect!

Would Always return to this lovely hotel which is so well integrated into nature.
