Stayed in December 2011, and had booked Indigo Pearl for a week. During the first couple of days we spoke to reception and the duty manager about a tapping noise that was coming from the full height wooden headboard, also pointing out that a couple of the floor boards were cracking and could be dangerous. The only response, beyond looking...

Dear Tlake, We sincerely apologise for the bad experience, certainly agreed this should have been handled by us better. Please note we have taken preventive maintenance measures to ensure our resort is termites free which happens occassionaly due to the tropical climate. Please be rest assured this is not our standard. Kind Regards, Indigo Pearl team.

We had holidayed in Phuket several times in the past decade but this was the first time without the children so we decided to book a hotel that was a bit more upmarket. It was a great choice. The hotel is 10-15 minutes from the airport which is a major plus given the traffic and delays getting to and from...

Reviewed 2 April 2012

Having spent my fair share of money on top-rated places that purported to be luxurious, I was skeptical that shelling out extra money for this swank property would be worthwhile (particularly since I left a property about $100 less per night in Kata Beach that was perfectly fine). After staying here, however, I became convinced that staying here was worth...

Indigo Pearl is such a beautiful, contemporary hotel with stunning grounds and gardens. The facilities are excellent and the location is perfect , just a few minutes walk to the beach.

This hotel is in an absolutely wonderful location. The beach is perfect and wonderfully clean and the staff are great. It was nice to be within a village location as one did not have to spend all the time at the hotel but could wander amongst the 'locals' who are very friendly -probably because of all the money spent by...

We stay for the 1st time to the Indigo pearl. It was just perfect! The hotel is beautiful with a fantastic decoration. Thanks to the different swiming pool, including one with no children, you can really be very relax and you have the feeling that there is not to much people in each place of the hotel.

The Sunday Brunch at the Indigo Pearl is no longer a secret tip and one is well advised to book several weeks in advance. The food is excellent, difficult to find a larger, better choice and the wines are well chosen,too. The staff serving at the buffet are efficient, friendly and knowledgeable about their products.
