I am writing this review just 2 days after returning home from this absolute great vacation in Phuket. First off all to narrow it down for everybody to understand. We have gone through the Sandbox program to get here which is why the communication with the hotel is part of the review. Right from the first email about their Sandbox offer for inclusions and a bit of support on the Sandbox documents from the hotel i felt well served. I received several good infos about it and i could ask all my questions i had on the rooms and villa offerings before booking. Finally we decided to book a 3 Bedroom Villa , which came with its own chef and service staff living in the villa which to us seemed to be an overkill but boy would we be up for a treat. On arrival at the airport ,we were greeted by the Andara shuttle service which came standard with the package. On arrival at the hotel we were directly driven to the villa for a personalised check in. As the hotel requested for the necessary documents before arrival over email only a signature was needed which limits potential infection causes already. We were happily surprised to have been upgraded to a 5 Bedroom Villa. Wow was the major word for the first day. Beautiful sized rooms, an amazing view over Kamala Beach and then there were "Oh" and "A" our chef and her assistant. So the deal was that they would cook you breakfast in what form you want and it would be included. For any other meals we were requested to let the chef know a day in advance so she could arrange for the groceries and prepare the meals whenever you request. Except of the first day and the last day we used "Oh´s" cooking skills as we were genuinely blown away by the preparation and taste of her cooking. We started searching for any kind of interesting Thai food on the internet and we would discuss with her for the next day. Never you get to hear a"NO" or "Let me Check". She could to them all and they were amazing. To us Europeans the fact that they will stay in the same villa was strange at first but we started getting along and really made use of their amazing service. They were discreet and friendly and always at your service. The rooms itself are Thai Style. We did not mind and experienced a well maintained villa with marginals flaws. The only room with a king size bed was the masters and the other rooms had a tiny queen size bed which for couples might be a bit small but you can work it out. Wifi is available on the entire area but gets slow at times. But with those views and this amazing pool you barely used it anyway. The pool genuinely was massive and almost lap size and was always on great temperature. While you are using the pool during the day "Ah" and "O" would take care of the room cleaning and to get you the drinks or small pastries and fresh fruits, which we had left from the breakfast, as well as towels and water. Also the other members of the Andara Team were great. As part of our trip back home we needed another PCR Test within a 48h window from departure, which in some countries can be a challenge. But the concierge at Andara recommended a small clinic in town and drove me and my family over for a quick test. On arrival we were prepared to fill out some paper work for registration but we only had to check and sign one paper as the hotel by itself transmitted all details. We were asked to get the tests the next day but shortly before we were suppose to collect them the hotel staff already arrived at our doorstep to hand out the printed results. I have traveled some time during the pandemic but this level of preparedness was amazing. We also made use of the SPA facilities. Each member of the family had a 60min Treatment included but we ended up taking together 6 more treatments with them as they have been amazing. Professional and caring. The hotel has their own Restaurant called "Silk" but at the time we spend there it was closed for renovation but as we had our own staff in the villa we did not mind too much. 😁 One more thing i would like to mention is that at the time we have been in Phuket me and my wife celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary. To make it special i requested for a possibility of a flower bouquet and a special celebration menu. All had been taken care of in the process with Ms. Samaporn and Ms. Nawarat who were great help. They send me a list of 50 flower bouquets ton choose from and put me in contact with the Resort Chef to arrange for the 3 Course Meal which we enjoyed in our villa. I just mentioned some special ingredients i would like to be included and they build it up around it. It was AMAZING. On our way back to our room they prepared the bed with flower petals. On our day of travel our departure time was 11pm from Phuket and on request we asked to give us a late check out and after no hesitation we have been given all the time we needed without an extra charge. They collected the luggage and us at 8pm and after a lot of hugging with the In-Villa Team we sadly had to say goodbye after 10 Days. The beach was a short walk (10min) from the hotel but was not too nice. I guess it was because most of the town unfortunately suffered during the pandemic which makes everything look like its closed or not well maintained. We did not bother too much as we understand their situation. However everyone in town was still friendly and lovely as we experienced it many times before in Thailand. The Hotel provides a shuttle service within Kamala which was great. A small tipp, just beneath the entrance of the hotel there is a small restaurant called "BUA". We went here the last day of our travel back and it was amazing as well. So overall we could not be more happy about this choice and would recommend it to anyone. I am very much sure that the hotel keeps the same level of standard outside of the pandemic but we honestly did not see any other guests during our stay. Thanks again to the entire ANDARA Team for this unforgettable experience.

Andara Resort & Villa has many reasons to be special. Besides being the first Resort we travelled to as a Family in the post lockdown era, it exceeded expectations on all fronts. May I elaborate! This is a gorgeous, spread out Luxury Resort with beautifully appointed Villas and Suites. The suites are fully equipped with a running kitchen and the huge spaces available made it an ideal resort for our Family to spend an extended time during the Phuket sandbox. The Layout is such that it allows for maximum privacy. The Resort is walking distance from the lovely Kamala Beach where we spent most evenings wave bashing. It also has some popular restaurants that serve delicious Thai food, should you wish to eat out. The kids area is not very large, however its loaded with activities that kept our kids happily busy for many hours. Besides the Resort spaces, a huge attraction is the Spa - perhaps one of the best we have been to – both in terms of the spaces within as well as the incredible treatments, courtesy the experienced Therapists. The wonderful Khun Aron and Khun Pong are definitely reasons to visit again! I do believe any well run Hotel is a reflection of the General Manager on the property and the Swiss Daniel Meury who has spent a number of years in Asia is a wonderful example. His immense assistance along with his able team for our pre arrival formalities is commendable. He would personally meet all Guests during breakfast, everyday and we would invariably run into him while he was on his rounds during the day. We enjoyed some wonderful meal experiences and delightful conversations with Daniel (he’s a favourite with our girls now) as is Dolly! Another strong highlight of this property is the team on board. Their care extended above and beyond. We love the Thai dessert, Tub Tim Krob – and as it wasn’t available in the Resort, the team would buy it for us from their favourite spots. Huge thanks to Khun Kim for that, Khun Yut for the perfect coffee and his attempts to try to teach my younger one Thai, Khun Ju for her ever smiling care and attention and the entire F&B team. Khun Zon surprised us with a beautiful hand drawn portrait when we were leaving after 19 nights and it’s the little gestures from the team that would always remain with us. Khun Olga who looks after guest experiences was a delight to interact with and always helpful with local Phuket experience options. A huge thank you to Andara Resort & Villa – you are close to our hearts and we cannot wait to return at the soonest.

We stayed at Andara with the Phuket Sandbox programme in July and we had an amazing and seamless experience. Even before our flight to Phuket, the hotel staff was incredibly kind and helped us with the process to apply for the Sandbox programme. It took all the worry away from us in these uncertain times and made us look forward to our time in Thailand. When we arrived at the hotel, we couldn't believe how beautiful the grounds were and our villa with our own pool was absolutely spectacular. The whole experience from the impeccable food, the stunning pool area, the luxurious spa treatments, the service and friendliness of the staff and the hotel manager Daniel was making us feel so so welcome and valued. We loved every minute of our stay. We even met the hotel dog, Dolly and after a week it felt like being friends not guests. During our stay we had to do two COVID tests required by the Phuket sandbox, and again Andara made sure we didn't have to worry about anything. Everything was organised for us and worked out perfectly. The standard of the hotel is way beyond the 5 stars, as there was not one thing that was not absolutely perfect during our stay. But especially I want to emphasize the amazing staff that helped us with everything and was so forthcoming. We will definitely be back and we cannot recommend this hotel highly enough - If you're looking for a special place to stay that doesn't just offer luxury but also a heartfelt experience, this is for you. Thank you so much everyone from Andara, especially Khun Yaya, Khun Yut, Khun Zon and the lovely team around you. Pia

We entered Phuket Sandbox on July 4th under a great amount of uncertainty, and after a long flight and tests when we arrived, the taxi brought us to the door of the Andara and for the next two weeks we have had the experience of a lifetime. The staff are absolutely incredible. They have gone out of their way to make us feel welcome and supported at such an uncertain time. They have been friendly, courteous to perfection, and have genuinely acted like our friends rather than just staff at the hotel. The two bedroom pool villa and the view we had from the deck was exceptional. The food served by Khun K has been perfect evert single day that we've eaten. The spa has the most luxurious treatments i've experienced. The hospitality is second to none. Had we not stayed at this hotel I don't think we would have enjoyed our stay as much, but it has made our trip go from potentially difficult to the best experience we've ever had in a hotel. This is one of the first reviews i've ever written, and I had to do so to share what an incredible experience we've had. Khun Yut, Khun Yaya, Khun Pong, Khun Zon, Khun K, Khun Pudtan and Daniel the manager, as well as the countless other incredible people who work at the hotel, you should be so proud. We will be coming back!
