JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa

Phuket, Thailand

The hotel

It's a top-class place, located on pristine, beautiful Mai Khao Beach. The JW Marriott Phuket Resort and Spa was built in the middle of a coconut plantation and the landscaped gardens are particularly attractive with their lush plants and lotus ponds. Hidden among the foliage is the award-winning Mandara Spa where scrubs, wraps, manicures, facials and massages are available. The rooms are very fetching, with tiled floors, silk fabrics and Thai-style décor touches. Candlelit, open-air Thai dining in Andaman Grill is a treat, with locally caught seafood on the menu.

This was our first visit to the JW Marriott and it was everything we’d hoped it would be. This is a very well managed resort set beside a stunning beach, very clean beach with easy access to water sports which were a hit with the children. We thought the food was fantastic across the Resort and particularly enjoyed the Delhi (great lunch option/tasty salads), the Marriott Cafe buffet in the evening which was plentiful and the Japanese which was just outstanding. Their weekly buffet was a taste sensation. Don’t miss it! During the day we spent our time by the quiet pool which was just perfect. Great service from the staff, comfy loungers and an inviting pool. This was all just steps from the beach. The lobby area offers a great chill out area with nice bar, pool table and plentiful seating. We always enjoyed a relaxed cocktail here after a day by the pool with immaculate service. Service throughout the resort and without exception was first class. We would definitely return to this hotel in the future. Read less

My husband & I have been coming to this resort since 2002, and have the equivalent of six weeks in weeks & points. We've used those weeks/points at other Marriott resorts, and enjoy the numerous vacation options around the world (we've also converted points for a cruise - nice!). I have to say the Phuket Beach Club is by far the best resort in terms of quality, service, and value-for-money. Over the 19 years we've been visiting, we've been impressed with the upkeep and improvement to the property as a whole. The beach is at our doorstep, the villas are wonderful, and the pools, restaurants, and activities (including nearby golf) are all excellent. There's also (within walking distance) several local restaurants to choose from that reflect local Thai cuisine & pricing. My husband & I both love the local Thai massage ladies on the beach, who perform a one-hour Thai massage for the equivalent of $15. One aspect my husband & I both wanted to comment on is the excellent management & staff here. Both Oliver & Vincent take care of the villas and guests, ensuring all their needs are met. The weekly owner's reception by the pool is always welcome as we get to meet like-minded guests, pick up some new friendships, and socialize with other owners. My husband is particularly impressed with the concierge service, Oy & her staff. They are the most friendly & helpful people, and Oy has been at the resort since 2001, so she can almost anticipate each guest's questions & needs, and sense when something isn't right. Besides using the concierge service to book tours, transportation, golf & restaurant reservations, Oy also helped my husband on several business-related matters, printing off contracts & forms, and helping us scan documents into PDF format to send off via e-mail. Superb service! Because of the location, weather, value-for-money, and just downright fun, we return to this same resort each January for 2 to 3 weeks...and have now decided to extend our stay even longer to four weeks beginning in 2021!

Where do I start, from General Manager George Varughese, to F&B manager to reception staff to pool staff to everyone in the property is there to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We were here to celebrate our anniversary. Upon arrival we were greeted by a handful smiling faces. Check in was a flawless. Our room was decorated with flowers on the bed and personalised fruit basket and cake. We had planned a number of activities during our trip but unfortunately our daughter got and didn’t want to go or do anything. When hotel staff found out, they were all over it. First Nikki (Hotel staff) sent boiled rice for her in the room then asked if wanted a nurse to see her. Another staff member I want to thank and mention is Jay( don’t know his last name) he was amazing. He kept checking up on his . I mentioned that our twin girls birthday was coming and he arranged a crew to come to our room with a small cake and sing happy birthday for her. My girls were totally surprised. It made their day. I could go on and on. It is a beautiful property , very kid friendly and the staff makes it hard to leave. Don’t think about it just go ahead and make the reservation , you won’t regret it. Photo below is with George while eating dinner at Ginja Thai restaurant. A must try place. We had a set menu and it was amazing. Read less

We would definitely return if we come back to Phuket. Read less

We stayed in the Vacation Club Villas which were very nice.

The site is beautiful, well maintained, and has many good walking paths to enjoy the gardens and scenery. The Mai Khao beach is so scenic and beautiful, and just a few steps away from the resort. With Turtle Village being a 5 minute walk away, we could shop easily, including getting groceries for cooking meals in our villa. I highly recommend this Marriott property. Read less
