The hotel itself is very beautiful and cozy. The swimming pools and the water park is really nice. Me and my family decided to come to Phuket just because we would like to stay at this hotel.

Nice visit, very friendly and professional staff. Only the quality of food was not at the level of a 5 star hotel. Beautiful and peaceful room. Special thanks go to Khun Kookkai of the Italian restaurant.

Most people will love this resort. It's great for kids. They have multiple pools, 4 waterslides, a lazy river, cliff diving into a deep pool, a pool table, etc. It's a kid's paradise.

Most people will love this resort. It's great for kids. They have multiple pools, 4 waterslides, a lazy river, cliff diving into a deep pool, a pool table, etc. It's a kid's paradise. It's right on the beach which is basically private right now. They have two restaurants (Thai and Italian). Currently, probably due to COVID, it's very affordable to stay here and they're running specials for on-resort credits. We used our daily credits to buy dinner every night. A large buffet breakfast at the restaurant was also included each morning. The room was beautiful and spacious. Some of the rooms have private pools. I might opt for one of those next time. I'm sure they have a spectacular view. The staff are all incredibly friendly. Our group had two gluten free diners and two vegetarians and the restaurants had no problem accommodating those preferences and allergies. The staff by the pool was also very friendly. Mui was a great server who helped us with lunch and drinks by pool. If he thought we needed anything he was very proactive. I'd definitely stay at this resort again. We went with two other couples and did not have any children, so you could call this a couples resort, but it is also very family friendly. There is a private adult pool, but it was closed (probably due to COVID) during our stay. The pool that was open was huge, so no complaints. This resort was about an hour drive from the airport. We rented a car and stopped at two beaches on our way there to break up the drive. The resort is also close to a small town, but most of the businesses are closed. We would recommend our friends stay here. Read less
