"Great location and excellent service"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Feb 5, 2014
Spent 4 nights there and did not want to leave. Friendly, helpful staff who went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. A tranquil haven to return to after a day of action on Surin Beach. Hope to return next year.
"Quiet hideaway on busy Phuket island"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Feb 3, 2014
Stunning location on North East side of the island for rest and relaxation. Very well furnished and spacious rooms. Friendly staff with high service standards. Ideal location for tours into phang-nga bay from Au Po pier only 5 minutes taxi ride away. After a comfortable nights sleep one of the highlights for the day was the morning breakfast looking out over the bay - a simply stunning view. We enjoyed a fabulous four nights with our family and would love to go back.
"Isolated beach resort"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Jan 29, 2014
Great if you want to maroon yourself in a quieter, but not entirely personal, resort environment.
The rooms are flawless, the pool area is large and it's often empty tributaries span around the exterior of the building which is a nice touch.
The quiet end of Nai Yang beach is directly accessible from the lounging area by the pool, but expect to walk out about 100m when the tide is out. It's very shallow and not good for swimming.
Clever use of architecture and landscaping make the whole place feel more intimate considering it probably hosts 100+ rooms.
The food is OK and the facilities excellent, but if you are keen on seeing the sights you can't really wander anywhere yourself. The resort is at the end of a fairly long road leading to the main road itself. We didn't see any town nearby but we're only there for 1 night as we chose it due to the excellent proximity to the airport.
I probably wouldn't stay here again, but not for any fault of the resort itself. It's just not for me and would have preferred something smaller.
"Very far away from Patong.....!!!!!"

The resort is very nice .comparatively close to the airport but very far away from the city centre , Patong beach. No where to eat around the resort . So you must bacome a full board there. If you do not wish to go to Bangla road and patong, then its fine. Resort restaurant is not too expensive but you will definitely be missing out from the famous thai street food.
"Ultimate relaxation and great views."

As you are driven up the slope towards the reception area you can feel the relaxation entering your body. The grand reception area with its views over the ocaen and a variety of chill out areas to sit and have a cocktail - perfetion. We stayed in room 3904 - it was secluded and very quiet - with a view of the ocean.

Unparalleled privacy, having been upgraded to a duplex 2 bed villa, with luxurious pool, garden, bathrooms, kitchen and living room. Only downside was unpleasant (ill-lit and lacking pedestrian facilities) walk to beach.
"Great to go back!"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Nov 5, 2013
This was our second visit to this hotel. The rooms are well equipped, we had very good service, breakfast is great and the children's facilities are really good. All the staff were friendly and helpful. We hope to return again!
Very nice resort. Staff were really friendly, and had no issue with us doing late check out (7pm) as we had a late flight. Short walk to the bars and beach, but it is a quiet area of Phuket so quite a few places were closed. But was ideal for a romantic getaway as was nice and peaceful. Very well priced compared to surrounding hotels. Would stay here again if visiting Bangtao again.
"Great hotel... just couldn't swim!"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Aug 21, 2012
This is a fantastic boutique resort with all rooms overlooking the sea, great when waking up in bed to the sound of the waves. Some wear and tear was present but nothing that I wouldn't expect from a beach side resort. The breakfast buffet wasn't as extensive as in other hotels but this didn't matter to us, the food was always excellent. Especially the fish dishes in the evening, they were simply divine! The major problem was that we couldn't swim at all! The waves were so large that for the majority of our 6 night stay that we were left sunbathing on the great beach while staring at the sea. There are two life guards present on the private beach along with a sign saying "Do Not Swim". At high tide the waves could reach up to 4 meters high, great for boogie boarding but not for a pleasant swim. This was a huge let down for us as getting away to swim in the sea was what we really wanted. We watched many families and other couples arrive only to see their faces drop at the sight of "Do Not Swim". The manger said that you could only swim between November to April but there is no mention of this on their website so be careful when booking. If you want to stay in Phuket during the low season, make sure you stay on the east side of the island!!!
