I recently stayed 15 nights as part of the ALQ program upon landing in Phuket. Reservation inquiries and communication with the Director of Sales, Khun Laila, was a breeze. Pre-arrival housekeeping requests were acceded to effortlessly.
The location is really good considering that many places are shut due to COVID. A few really nice restaurants are still open within walking distance and Kata beach is only a 10 minutes walk away. The hotel itself is beautiful and clean.
The breakfast had a wide variety of options and the food is great! Most importantly the service at the hotel is fantastic, everyone went above and beyond to make our stay unforgettable (including organising a surprise birthday dinner). The personal friendliness and attention is exceptional too.
Have been to Thailand a couple of times and this is by far the best hotel. Quit situated but good access to the beach, shops and restaurants. Great rooms, pool access from the room, great breakfast, great restaurant and great staff.
We are very pleased with our stay and this could for sure be a hotel and area to return to in the future.

Hotel is located in Patong area, with sea view. We stayed in 2 bedroom pool villa. Separated living space from 2 bedrooms. Bedroom is so spacious with high ceiling and big wondow. Clean. I love to sit next to infinity egde pool seeing patong bay. There is only 1 TV in the living room. Since bedroom is so spacious, better have sofa to make to room not so empty.
Better have more garbage bin in the room. Staffs are very friendly, kind, helpful, have serviced mind. Feel very impressed.

From the moment we arrived we were greeted with such warmth, the room was spacious and had a fantastic view! Air conditioning was excellent as it was always so hot outside which we loved anyway.

The bed was lovely and big! More on the harder side for a mattress but we always had a great sleep.

Bathroom – we had a nice big shower with a rain shower head.. So good! And good pressure.

Our room had breakfast included and we were more then happy with the variety of food on offer each day, was great to have the option of trying traditional Thai dishes as well as the usual western food.

There is a shuttle that the resort runs every couple of hours that takes you for free to the nearby jungceylon shopping mall or Patong beach and pick up from those stops back to the resort also.

They recommended booking at least an hour before the time you wish to leave to avoid any overbooking issues. If you are fairly fit, walking to and from the town is definitely enjoyable as you get to soak in all the culture.
Just note it is on a hill so it’s not an overly easy walk if you don’t walk often. Loads of good massage places through the streets just down from the resort also! We loved making the most of these.
There is also a great night market full of Thailand authentic street food 5 mins walk from the resort.. You can’t miss it! Definitely check this out if you want some tasty and cheap eats!
