Amazing (unbeatable) views from the room and swimming pool. A unique location 20-30 min drive from Phuket old town. Close to Rawai beach, but still far enough for all the masa of tourists. You feel you are in the jungle, and still close to civilisation. Very quite; you hear only birds, insects and there are lots of beautiful butterflies. Incredible beautiful and clean infinity swimming pool. Property’ s gardens and surroundings well kept: very neat and clean. There are several people working for that every day. The room is well cleaned every single day , you get fresh towels as well. Every 2-3 days new bed sheets. Not all stuff speaks well English, but some do. Nevertheless they all assisted us with all our needs. When something went wrong ( door couldn’t be locked, not good signal for TV channels, they fixed the problems in minutes). Very kind and helpful stuff, mostly Khun Tom. Such a nice person who speaks English well. ( Food and drinks manager). Also the reception man very kind and helpful)
You need a motorbike or car to reach there. But any taxi will do the trip for you as well. Room a bit outdated: many aunts some even in bed( but you are almost in the jungle- so it’s understandable- could be better isolated though). Internet quite poor. You need to stand close to the balcony window to get fully connected. At the lobby and restaurant good connection. Some cracks in the wall, mostly in the bathroom. Breakfast quite poor and the same every day ( unless the hotel have more than 15 guests- then they serve a very good buffet with quite of choices). For those with mobility problems a bit challenging as you need to go up the mountain to get to your room. But the stuff is very helpful and they always offer to bring you up with their little car from the reception. No airport transfer.
No wifi, bugs and no airport transfers
The view was nice, and the swimming pool was usually quiet which was good.
The staff here speak very little English. Asked for food and drinks from the menu but the staff could barely understand. Asked for a taxi late at night , the reception said this is not possible. So we had to phone a taxi and book it ourselves with no problem. Staff not so friendly. I don't know why this is considered a 4 star hotel. Also the hills are so steep anyone with mobility issues would struggle here. Mini bar empty. Asked for 2 single beds , got one double bed. Staff shouting at 8 in the morning, constant banging of construction work through the day.
Very nice view room was great staff were friendly
Tried to buy a jack Daniels and coke from the bar one day, the woman on the bar spoke no english at all she had to take photos of the bottle and send it to someone then ring them to figure out what i wanted it was very stressful and i was over charged, then when checking out after a 3 night stay i was hit with a bill for 220baht for water what they had put in our fridge this was ridiculous we have not been charged for water in any hotel ever. Apparently theres a spa there we never saw it.
The room and view were amazing - definitely more than worth the money we paid. One of the days we even had a monkey appear on the balcony which was pleasant surprise! The hotel breakfast had lots of choice and was very close to the beaches - which had partys most nights.
