Amazing holiday

Wallasey, United Kingdom

We stayed here for 10 days of our Thailand trip after a busy and wild time in Bangkok. The hotel and grounds are immaculate and staff are about gardening, cleaning and making right all of the time. Everyone here were chatty, jolly and happy to help. Breakfasts were lovely, plenty to choose from, lots of seats and never really that busy. I enjoyed the pancakes and deep fried tofu (fir breakfast - I know??). We didn't realise that you could have a packed breakfast for early trips but there is a 711 shop at the end of the road. We didn't eat at the restaurants at the hotel but I'm sure a sunset meal would have been just stunning. The pool areas are wonderful with shady areas and beautiful plants and trees. The pool bar at coconut pool was a bit of a let down and I wasnt keen on the jarg music played but the cocktails at half price were great. The water was spotless and staff came with nets every morning to take out the falling leaves. Our room was lovely, we had a swim up room but our travel agent had shown us pictures of the private pool room and we hadn't realised so were initially disappointed. However, the room and outside sitting area was just perfect (if a bit shady) in the end. Watch out for the bugs at night as they thought I was delicious. The hotel is located on a very big hill and walking up and down in the heat at times was very hard. The hills are so steep your knees don't bend properly. The guys will give you lifts to and from your room and front reception whenever you need. Karon beach was lovely but I wasn't that keen on the strip of restaurants there. We ventured to Patong several nights and loved it there. We had a magical holiday in a beautiful hotel and thoroughly enjoyed being spoiled. Next time we come to thailand we plan to have a few luxury nights in hotels like these and the other time nearer the action. We really did not have time to make the most of the luxury. Thank you

Just wow

This is the best and nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. The resort is absolutely stunning!! The Rooms are immaculate and the maids are fantastic. The spa is absolutely beautiful and we had great treatments there. The staff are absolutely amazing. Kind, friendly, helpful and the nicest people ever who are willing to help with anything you need - from the reception staff, to the waiters and waitresses in the restaurant, the boys in the lobby at the entrance and the maintenance staff that you see whilst walking around. Both of the restaurants are fabulous and food is delicious. The free bus service to the beach and back was great - it’s not far but seems like miles when walking in the heat. Great location also - 10 minute walk to the beach, little mini mart just at the bottom of the road in case you need anything in emergency , and also lovely little places to eat aswell just at the end of the road en route to the beach. I honestly wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Phuket. Can not recommend this resort enough.
