Only a 5-10 minute drive from the airport to the hotel but that proximity was a bonus for us as it meant that we didn't have long tedious transfers. Don't worry though - no problem with aircraft noise at the hotel or in nearby Nai Yang. It's a large site so even when the hotel is full it doesn't feel...

This place is extremely expensive and it's just not worth the money! First, it's not on the beach nor can you see the beach from the hotel. So, if you'd like to be at the beach you have to lay on mat in the sand that you rent from one of the locals. Second, the resort is quite large and...

This is an architect and designer's heaven! A feast to the sights and full of little ideas that are quite inspiring. We came as a group of 18 people on a company retreat. We had the pool villas all in a row. It was perfect for everyone to play and hang out. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast spread...

This is a great resort. It's huge, built on 35 acres but you never feel like you're amongst lots of people as there are 3 pools (2 which are adults only) and many restaurants spread around the sprawling grounds. The design is cool and funky, the service great and the rooms, ever so comfortable. The resort backs on to a...

The hotel very close to the airport which was a real plus. This was our first holiday with a young baby and perhaps some thought could have gone into putting us on a ground floor room instead of the second floor (no lifts, a real pain to carry the pushchair up the stairs) and away from holidaying couples. When the...

Me and my boyfriend stayed there 4 nights in a room with a private swimmingpool. The room was beautiful, with a lot of attention for details, the breakfast was great altough always very busy, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the location ( at the the beach) was perfect! The only thing i did not like was the...

Rooms very good (if you like to find the multiple light and dimmer switches and You like the elaborate shower gels... ) But service very poor. Was not there on time for airport arrival, check out painfully slow and concierge non existent at times.

I didn't know what to expect from Phuket in general and from a resort so close to the airport in paticular. I have travelled in Thailand several times but never to Phuket which for me always sounded too crowded for my taste. Travelling with two small kids and a friend with another young boy we decided to take the easy...
