"Luxury in paradise at Andara Phuket"
A trip to Phuket could be an ordinary one except at Andara Resort & Villas. Andara offers the guests true luxury in paradise, nestled amidst lush tropical surrounds overlooking the Andaman Sea. Stay at Andara never be disappointed even though not setting by the beach as the room gives you spacious space, comfortable and Thai touch decoration plus a view of Phuket sea. Property wide is well set and look after, staff are attentive and at your service. Beautiful public swimming pool and food at the restaurant is very good. Spa is quite bland and nothing to impress about. If you wish to spend time by the beach, the resort provides complimentary shuttle service for a short ride and set up beach bed for you however not a nice beach to visit, better stay in the room and lapping in your villa pool. I don't mind to go back to Andara.
"A Beautiful Finale to Our Honeymoon World Tour"
The husband booked the three bedroom Penthouse Villa for the last stop on our extended honeymoon. He wanted to ensure that we had the most privacy for our personal infinity pool and being at the very top of the suites ensured that. The infinity pool is situated at the top of the suite. It is equipped with a bbq grill, patio table and chairs, four or five loungers and umbrellas. I loved that the pool did not reek of chlorine and was ridiculously gentle on my sensitive skin. We spent hours each day just basking in the sunlight and swimming around. Everything about the suite was fantastic. It is extremely grand to step out of the elevator to your own personal entrance, walk into the suite and gaze out to the ocean through the floor to ceiling windows. We never left the resort grounds during our stay, because everything we needed was there, a delicious restaurant and a fabulous spa! The day we arrived the master bedroom was set up with swan towels and rose petals on the bed and in the bathtub. The ambiance was very romantic. The master bathroom is very spacious and you've got three options of how you'd like to clean yourself! :) The outdoor shower was a favorite of mine, the only shower I used during our three night stay! It is invigorating to shower outside with the ocean as your backdrop! The sliding doors open up quite a bit, but because we have severe reactions to mosquito bites we had to keep them closed the majority of the time. The major perk about the room is the Bose surround sound. We had music going all throughout our stay and it's great to wander from room to room with the music engulfing you. They even have speakers on the outside deck! If the remotes were labeled it would be a lot more convenient - it's a constant guess which remote controls which area of the house. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the pots, pans, utensils, that you would need. Because we were in such a large suite, we were never short of bottled waters, which we needed a lot of! The Silk restaurant was consistent and delicious! I'd prefer to order room service than go downstairs, because the menu is the same and you get to eat in the comfort of your own suite. We also had an evening where we ordered a romantic dinner in our suite - there were seven courses I believe' I may be wrong, but there were many! They paced out the time that the would bring each course, because it would've been disappointing if they brought it all out at once. Very good attention to detail! Everything we ate had great depth in flavor and was never too overly spiced. We had two spa trips during our stay. Both treatments we selected were 2.5 hours long or more. The massages that the Andara Spa provided are well worth the "investment". Pooky was my masseuse for both spa treatments and was very meticulous in every movement she made during the massages. I've had many spa treatments and I feel like the masseuses can never keep the serene ambiance till the very end. The massages both my husband and I received were relaxing and rejuvenating. I'd highly recommend scheduling yourself for the massages. The only thing that made this trip Very Good rather than Excellent was the initial welcome. First impressions are everything and the welcome left a bad taste in my mouth. We've been traveling for four months and have a lot to compare. This is a top tier luxury resort - expectations are higher.
"Unforgettable, Once-In-A-Lifetime Vacation"
It's impossible to overstate how amazing Andara is. We stayed in a 3-bedroom pool villa, and it was absolutely palatial, with sea views to die for. Much more space than a family of 4 needed, but we enjoyed the privacy, and we truly loved having our own private chef and butler. The cooking and service were so outstanding, that we tried to come "home" for meals as much as possible, because it was always much better than eating out! We also appreciated having our own concierge, who checked in on us daily, and arranged outings and transportation for us. We loved the location up above Kamala Beach; you could easily walk down to Kamala town or take a tuk-tuk to the beach. Laem Sing and Surin beaches are just a bit further away. And Patong is not too far if you want more hustle and bustle. Everything was excellent at Andara - accommodations, restaurant, pool, spa... and service was always 5-star. True, no one speaks perfect English. True, there are mosquitos to contend with. But you're in Thailand! And you will feel like royalty every moment at this resort. Everyone is so kind and helpful. We felt very spoiled and taken care of from arrival to departure.
Stunning resort that is top notch. Upgraded us to a penthouse suite that was breathtaking. Service was outstanding and restaurant was very good. Would also highly recommend resort setting up the one day private boat to Phang Na through the concierge. Lastly you must visit the Siam Supper Club for dinner, a resort recommendation that was superb. Highly recommend.
Well, I was expecting one of the best hotels in Phuket when I read the reviews before booking and wasn't disappointed! It was the best room (321) that we've ever stayed in, the breakfast was excellent as was dinner, and the pool area was extremely relaxing. I have to give special mention to the staff who were without exception attentive and couteious throughout our stay. Many thanks to all!
