"Stylish luxury close to village"
Overall: a true 5-star hotel with great design features and within a stone's throw of great restaurants and beach The good: - Beautiful grounds - Stylish, luxurious rooms (we had a suite with private pool which we loved) - Perfect location for Nai Yang which has lots of great restaurants - Nice gym and fitness facilities (including tennis courts) - 3 beautiful pools (2 adults only) - Good breakfast buffet The less good: - Bit of a problem with mosquitoes, not helped by the moats around the resort which are essentially mossie breeding grounds. They did a spray of the whole resort to try and address it so they know it's an issue - Some 'design elements' are a bit form-over-function e.g. complicated taps and glass bottles with glass stoppers in the shower - All rooms look into the (admittedly lovely) grounds so no chance of a sea view despite proximity to the beach
"Beautiful and original hotel"
Me and my boyfriend stayed there 4 nights in a room with a private swimmingpool. The room was beautiful, with a lot of attention for details, the breakfast was great altough always very busy, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the location ( at the the beach) was perfect! The only thing i did not like was the swimmingpool at out room. For some reason they covered the entire garden, incl the swimmingpool, with a roof and sunprotection so it was almost impossible to get some sun there. Because of this we didnt use our swimmingpool once and we only used the commen one (which is great btw ). So in my opnion it is a waste to book a room like that. For the rest; great hotel! Would definitely come back!
"Lovely rooms but poor service"
Rooms very good (if you like to find the multiple light and dimmer switches and You like the elaborate shower gels... ) But service very poor. Was not there on time for airport arrival, check out painfully slow and concierge non existent at times.
"A "hidden" gem"
I didn't know what to expect from Phuket in general and from a resort so close to the airport in paticular. I have travelled in Thailand several times but never to Phuket which for me always sounded too crowded for my taste. Travelling with two small kids and a friend with another young boy we decided to take the easy solution and fly to Phuket and choose a resort nearby the airport, so that after a long journey we could quickly settle in. And boy! What a pleasant surprise! Right from the check in there was a very pleasant and relaxed atmosphere about this place. We had a D-Buk Suite and a Pearl Suite. Both very nicely designed and with a lot of space. The children's pool is huge and quite nice even for adults. Staff in restaurants, House keeping etc. are ever so attentive. This part of Phuket, I learned, is a lot less packed with tourists and the local beach Nai Yang and the little beach town was super. Again very relaxed and not crowded at all. As many have described you hardly notice the airport while staying here. However it makes for a nice little trip to head north up the beach to see where the planes take off right over your head. The beach in that protected area is beautiful by the way. All in all a top class resort and absolutely value for money. We will visit again if we are in the area.
"Just love this place "
I first stayed in this hotel when it was the Indigo Pearl in 2009, and loved it. We returned in October 2016 and loved it even more. Every attention to detail, the warmth of the staff, the huge family sized room (dbuk suite, perfect with kids - if you want one on the first floor ask for e block). The hotel is just purecomfort, so relaxing but with enough life within and around it. Kids loved the family pool, made lots of friends. Ian looked after us sooooo well by the pool side, he was very kind and patient with the kids too. He's a complete star! Outside the pool beach was a bit choppy (October) but we loved the restaurants along the beach road (fav was phen's). We did miss the hotel's beach beds and happy hour with DJ that they had on the beach in 2009, but everything has been cleared off the beach by the authorities. Pros and cons to this I guess. We had plenty of massages at the first massage shop you come to if you turn right out of the hotel and walk along the beach road. Massage shop is on the first block on the left, second shop (it has four massage chairs in the front with a line of beds behind). Am fussy about my massages but the ladies there were good and kind to my kids. Finally special thanks to the hotel as my daughter got sick 6 hours before we were due to fly and they were great, sorting out a doctor, extending our stay, sorted it so we didn't need to move rooms etc. Extra extra special thanks to Maria who managed to get a hot water bottle for my daughter - so so kind!!! She told me she borrowed it from a friend but a little birdy told me she had popped out to buy it. Just no words. Anyway, I love this hotel and the staff. So we have just booked to go back for 8 days at Easter. Cannot wait!
