Picture perfect resort

London, United Kingdom

We stayed here for a week after 3 days in Bangkok. The transfer from Phuket airport took 50mins. This is a large resort set in a lush tropical hillside. Easy walk to the beach and nearby restaurants. Prebookable shuffle available to take you to the beach. Pros...Very friendly & welcoming staff, good variety breakfast selection, lovely spacious rooms with air con and ceiling fan, in room dining was used twice and both times food was delicious. Views from bedrooms were breathtaking. Good selection of pools including a quiet adult one. Cons...Reception area and bathroom in the rooms were far too hot. The bathroom has a window which in 35 plus degree heat does nothing to air the space. No ironing board or iron. The WiFi did not automatically connect when you reentered the rooms. We needed to connect using password every time we came back in the room. No fault of the hotel but as others have said, be aware of how hilly the resort is with lots of steps and no lifts. There are buggies available at reception to take you to your rooms. All in all a great stay in this beautiful country.
