"Great location ~ well appointed hotel "
Only stayed one night here unfortunately but I will certainly spend more time here on our next trip. Very nice hotel with very well appointed rooms. Fantastic Thai restaurant with very attentive staff (Norn & Mai ) We enjoyed the best Thai food of our holiday at the Andaman Resteraunt last night. It was superb. We booked a room with direct pool access which was beautiful. The resort directly fronts onto an expansive well protected beach, the tide was out and one could see the beach has a very gentle slope for 100s of meters, no rocks or dangers, very clean sand. The hotel has other Resteraunt’s and several bars. We had coffee and cheesecake overlooking the ocean. The hotel is about 10 minutes by taxi from Phuket Airport so on our next stay this will be our first hotel.
"Serene and peaceful property"
Hideaway spot, medium size private property with quality service the Marriott brand can offer. Perfect way to spend your quality time whether to enjoy with a family or by yourself. The property offer seclusive beachfront, treat yourself with spa and massage, dine in at their couple of restaurant outlets with beachfront bar that you can enjoy day and night. Famous mango cheesecake and breakfast almond croissant is a must!
"Quiet, functional resort yet lack of details"
Overall, there are few things that stand out in this hotel: The staff service is good, always with big smile :) The food quality is good - both western and thai. The room décor is very nice (this zen touch) gives you a feel of serenity. It has 3 restaurants, pool, fitness which fulfil most of our needs staying at the hotel (given the hotel is fairly isolated...) We found there is lack of considerate details: 1. there is one umbrella in the room and we have two persons. During monsoon seasons, it's not so convenient 2. only 2 shuttles per day to Nai Yang beach. 3. the layout of the hotel is bit weird and it's because it is renovated from an old hotel so the breakfast place is in the middle of the site without seaview while the Big Fish seafront restaurant were left empty most of the time (under-utilizing the space definitely), 4. lack of signs and directions - my friend made 5 rounds of the hotel to locate the gym which is located next to one of the guest rooms on the ground floor (so it's a small, hidden and enclosed gym) 5. missed one turn down first day check in 6. lack of connectivity to the town. We found it very strange that the 5-star hotel like Marriott does not offer booking services e.g. motorcycle, car rental for hotel guests. The staff replied that they are not allowed to book on behalf of guests with only exception of taxi booking (we all know taxi in Phuket is ripe off for tourists). This is not common for a 5-star hotel not to offer such booking offerings. My friend (thai) and I stay with many hotels in Phuket - Marriott should offer much better connectivity for hotel guest especially its location is VERY isolated. 7. the hotel beach is bit shallow beach and it's not the ideal beach for swimming. If you want water sports, you need to talk to Nai Yang beach (15 mins walk from the hotel). 8. there isn't enough trees. with the old building, the resort gives you a feeling of a condo feel without enough green. there are 3 pathetic palm trees in front of the Big Fish restaurant (see pic) and there's probably the most depressing scene for a 5-star resort. 9. the hotel somehow uses small trees to block all the good sea views - no clue why they are doing it (another pic is just one example) We stay at this hotel for 3 nights and feel that we have decreasing energy during our stay. There just isn't much variety of activities in the hotel and it host lots of Chinese tourists which perhaps make the activities unnecessary (most Chinese tour just came to stay over night and leave in the morning). We feel the hotel is bit "dead" and lack of energy overall. We have an impression that the hotel has much potential yet seems to prefer not to invest much after taking over from the previous owner.
From the moment arriving at the hotel we were treated with unbelievable hospitality from Ms.Amm and her staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them.... The beach villa with pool upgrade was amazing , the villa itself is stunning and immaculately decorated. I can only thank Ms Amm and her staff for making our holiday extremely relaxing and memorable.. We definitely are looking forward to coming back in the future 😁
"The best escapade!"
Everything about the place and the people was just soooo good! Food choices across the different restaurant outlets within the resort spa was vast and very well presented - down to room service orders!
