Virgin rating

The hotel

Overlooking a secluded beach, this chic haven has panoramic views over Patong Bay. Enjoy the impressive range of facilities, such as two landscaped swimming pools, water sports in abundance down at the beach and the Breeze Spa, plus some of the finest bars and restaurants around. There’s La Gritta for sumptuous Italian fare beside the sea and Rim Talay comes highly recommended, with live music on selected evenings. For casually romantic drinks over the water, head to the Jetty.

Beautiful location with it's own private entrance to the beach. The facilities are well maintained, cleanliness is top notch and the staff are very helpful and friendly - especially the two ladies at the Tour Info desk. My suggestion is that you book your tours through them as the prices are competitive and they somehow ensure you get the best service, seats and special treatment on all tours. The rooftop afternoon tea and the seafood platter is a must. The hotel is located in a quieter side of Phuket however Tuk-tuks are always available or you could walk a short distance to all the hype if that's what you prefer. They even did an amazing birthday set up for me which really made our stay special. Read less

The hotel is situated at a very good location with restaurants having a fantastic view. The hotel has two wings old and new and you will get to know only when you arrive, it is not mentioned anywhere. 1. Rooms are located at different levels on a hill and you have to wait from 15 to 35 minutes for the cart to pick you up, very annoying and irritating, can derail all your plans, it’s not possible to walk up and down. If you are with your friends then you can’t walk up to each other’s room 2. Rooms are very small, I stayed in a ocean view 1 bedroom villa and you could barely walk in the room 3. Towels are very old and beyond their usage life 4. There are multiple numbers but no one picks up phone for any kind of service , housekeeping staff keeps missing something or other 5. Toiletries are very poor 6. We had dinner at La Gritta , highly rated and expensive but pathetic food 7. Breakfast is 3/5, tick marks in all items but poorly cooked 8. Coffee machine does not work In summary room location and cart pick up drop is biggest pain point , you can not wait for 30 mins and keep calling repeatedly every time from breakfast or pool or spa or going out and coming back.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for seven nights on May 27. The hotel is very big and beautiful and has a private sea beach and a good and clean swimming pool. The room was excellently cleaned. Average breakfast. And twenty minutes walk to Bangla street and disco cafe. But the negative points of the hotel, our deluxe ocean view room was on the third floor on the side of the hotel without elevator and with stairs. I had knee pain and it was difficult for me to go up the stairs. On the first day, I went to the hotel reception to change the room and they said that we don't have an empty room! We will move later, but never change! Although I had paid a higher price for the room, I was bothered by the stairs. With all the good qualities of the hotel and its good quality, unfortunately, I will not choose the hotel twice. Read less

The Italian restaurant la gritta food was outstanding. Over all experience was not bad. Read less

I stayed at the deluxe ocean view wing room for 6 nights for my milestone birthday. The views, service, food and hospitality was second to none. The breakfast buffet was awesome and delicious with a very wide spread. The breakfast Manager, was hands on assisting all us guests. He was really awesome. The waves were crushing beneath my bedroom, it was amazing sounds of the waves all night long. On my birthday, I received a wonderful surprise from the hotel staff. They decorated the bed with flowers, fruit and macaroons. Whenever I walked down to the lobby, the staff were very attentive enquiring if I needed a cab. I cannot congratulate Suthasinee Telakul, Manager Guest Relations enough. She went over and beyond the call of duty. I wanted a photoshoot on my milestone birthday and she arranged it immediately with a top photographer whose service I was thrilled with. She also arranged for me to have a delayed check out in order to catch my late night flight. Much appreciated. I would always visit Amari Phuket when I travel to Phuket again and will most definitely stay with the Amari group of hotels. To everyone at Amari thank you such a memorable milestone birthday and for making my birthday such a memorable occasion. Much love and appreciation Nishi Read less
