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 hotel has stunning decor and the rooms were incredibly spacious and clean! All staff have been very pleasant and helpful making sure you have a fantastic stay! While staying here we booked up two trips via the concierge (Oy), she was extremely knowledgeable and provided a-lot of options to choose from that tailored to our needs! She was very friendly and went out of her way to help us - She couldn’t have done a better job! The breakfast is awesome, it literally caters for everyone as it has such a huge variety of options! The little touches like topping up our water while sunbathing, turning down the beds and giving us an update of the weather for the following day are very thoughtful and added to our stay! Read less

JW Marriott in Phuket belongs in the same category as other luxury beach resorts: Grand Wailea, The Cove at Atlantis and Ritz Carlton. The property is gorgeous: plants and flowers are abundant, the open air lobby is simply elegant, the restaurants are excellent and the staff is extremely accommodating. We stayed for a long weekend after a cruise and had a better time at the resort than on the boat. From our room we could walk down the stairs, cross the lush garden and be right on the beach. The head chef was recently featured in JWM and elevated the food at Cucina and the Andaman Grill. We loved the breakfast choices at the Marriott Cafe - European continental, big American options, Thai specialties, dim sum, exotic juices and coffees. The inside of the Cafe is a little noisy, so if you want quiet sit on the balcony overlooking the pool and ocean. Tan, the head Cafe waiter, will take care of any request. We had lunch at the adult only pool and the food was very tasty. An ordering tip: if you aren't super hungry, split an entree. The Chicken Curry pad thai is enough for two. The fitness center is well designed and my wife had a relaxing massage at the Mandara Spa. She also had a 'open air' massage on the beach by one of the locals for 600 bhat ($20 USD). These are great things to do when it rains in the afternoon. We went in the 'off season' (October) when kids are in school and the weather was perfect - not too hot and some afternoon showers. We are already planning to go back and enjoy it again. Read less

Picked this hotel due to proximity to the airport in Phuket to maximize holiday time! Plus the JW Marriott brand is pretty consistently good. Travelled with my husband and 2.5 year old. This is a nice resort, big enough to avoid the kids area if you’re traveling solo and enough space for kids to enjoy themselves without overrunning everything.… Read more
Picked this hotel due to proximity to the airport in Phuket to maximize holiday time! Plus the JW Marriott brand is pretty consistently good. Travelled with my husband and 2.5 year old. This is a nice resort, big enough to avoid the kids area if you’re traveling solo and enough space for kids to enjoy themselves without overrunning everything. Great pools, kids pool area is nice and the adults only one is well away from the family area so you won’t be bothered! Food is good - room service, breakfast, the cafe and Japanese restaurants are all high standard. Service staff are friendly but not overwhelming, a nice balance! Everyone at the restaurant, the front desk and health club were really lovely. Also great house keeping staff too, very responsive. We didn’t wait for more than a few mins for any requests. Gym is really good, great equipment range. There is also direct beach access to a really nice clean beach. Not so kid friendly with quite strong currents but fine for adults who can swim well. We booked a family room but next time we’ll just go for standard. Not really sure what the extra per night was for except location and it’s not that far to walk to the pool anyway. Kids club was also a bit disappointing. Limited toys and a lot of the staff seemed apathetic. Overall though it’s a great spot to stay, consistent with the JW Marriott brand, especially great if you don’t want to spend more than 10 mins in transit from the airport. Read less
