Baring All
  • There’s only one restaurant so unless you go for the in-house chef option, you may get a bit bored with the food on offer
  • Opt for a ground-floor Pool Suite if you have difficulty with steep stairs or are with young children
  • Penthouses have a spiral staircase; the views are the same as the villas
  • The rates are not cheap but you’ll get so much more for your money than at other hotels
Why we like it
Why we like it

This is a pleasant, informal Asian resort with good service. It’s a quiet place on the whole, due to the type of accommodation on offer. People tend to stay in their own space a lot during the day. However, Kamala Beach is only a few minutes away by private shuttle service, or a 10-minute walk, easily accessible should you want a change of scene. The new beach facility makes the best of the new situation in Phuket, and although there are no plush loungers, you can spend the day lolling on nice comfy mats and cushions.

Should you want to venture further afield, try the hotel’s 107ft Baglietto Italian yacht, which you can book to explore the surrounding islands. Large enough for up to 15 guests for a day’s sail (or eight on an overnight charter), it allows you to enjoy the Andaman waters and the many islands in the vicinity.

Just so you know
Just so you know

There’s no beach at the hotel. It’s nearby, but if you want to fall out of bed onto the sand, this is not the hotel for you.

Take a ground-floor Pool Suite if you are not great with steps or if you have younger kids; there are no stairs and more space for all to enjoy. For more romantic escapes, go for a Penthouse Suite, but note that there is a spiral staircase leading to the roof terrace and pool, which may be hard for some to navigate.

The private villas are the best option for families, as there’s much more space and a huge pool, plus you get the advantage of having a chef to cook for you every day – you just pay for the groceries.

The resort is in a great location; you can walk to nearby bars and restaurants within five minutes.

For large, multi-generational families or friends travelling together, there are lots of different accommodation options to suit.  While I was here, there were families from Australia and the UK, plus quite a few expats from Hong Kong and Singapore.
