not worth for the money
staff were quite helpful and honest. we left the camera in the lobby after check out, and they returned immediately.
We chose a pool villa designed for 3 ppl to stay, however when we checked in we found there was only 1 king bed. We need to ask for an extra bed in the living room. We felt like been cheated coz otherwise we could chose a suite and ask for extra bed, and the cost could be much cheaper. Anyway, we didn't argue about it coz we just planned to spend 1 night there. However, that night none of us slept well due the noisy air con system and the bad isalation from next door. Compared to the other similar hotels in that area, Aryara is old and its view is not as good as what's shown in their photos. Swimming pool is not real "infinity" and the size is small. I won't stay there again next time.

This hotel located on the hill of Kamala and if you want to go to Kamala beach, a shuttle bus from the hotel is necessary.
The living room with kitchen is big and nice. You could watch Tv and DVD (dicks can be rented from the hotel) here.You can also cook yourself something if you were tired of local food.
The private swimming pool is very nice and just facing the unbounded ocean.We love this swimming pool and had a lot of fun here with our lovely 2 years old son.The yard with couches is also very good for young babies and yourself.
Bedroom is good with nice ocean view.
The private beach of the hotel is a rock beach and very small.Do not have too much expectation.
The shortcoming is the decoration is a little bit old and there are a lot of bugs in the villa.But these didn't bother us much.
One thing which dissatisfied us is the hotel asked us to leave on 12pm while the check out time should be 2:00pm. The hotel should be more reasonable to guests with kids.

Great Place You Have to Try in Phuket
The best hotel I have experienced in Phuket, and they updated my room to ocean view for free. The service is good and the staffs there are great. Will come again.
Hotel Feature Tip:
The wifi sign is weak for some villa rooms. You may need to prepare well for this.

Gorgeous view, very nice pool, delicious breakfast.
If you can catch a good discount is a very good deal. Is close to the town, but I would recommend to rent a scooter, it's just baht and you can drive around and see others beaches. The hotel has a private beach, it's nice but you can not swim and the stairs to get there is a lot! On e way up you can catch a elevator. Is a very romantic spot, and the room we catch was huge, clean and with a private balcony. It's was awesome.

Brilliant rooms & views
Infinity pool, huge room and yummy breakfast
Our room was so fantastic that I thought we must have received an upgrade! It was very luxurious & the staff very friendly. We loved our stay.
Basilico italian restaurant in the town is fantastic - pizzas are perfect!

Fantastic facilities *but* very "tropical"
huge complex, full of facilities, close to the beach, standard room but decorated very well
one of the biggest hotel that i ever went to. it has 3-4 swimming pools, 5-6 restaurants, etc.
the rooms are beautifully decorated but has a standard typical hotel floor plan
the hotels are very clean, swimming pools are great
close to the beach
the breakfast were very nice
close to the city's shoping area too
thailand is a tropical country so i imagine it has all the challenges that other tropical destinations do - which is cockroaches. we found a cockroach in our room - to be honest only 1 out of the 3 nights that we stayed there. but still, it can be quite "traumatizing"

Great view but getting a bit worn
Great sea view, good service
The hotel staff were attentive and competent. The view of the sea from our room was great. The room itself was large and pleasant enough, but there are obvious signs of wear and tear. The bed was quite hard as well.

Great hotel, terrific view
Nice rooms and beautifull bathrooms
Very good hotel perfect for relaxing and enjoying a retreat away from the ectic life of Patong.
The best way to move around is to rent a small motorbike, otherwise the costs of taxi and tuk-tuk are really high.

Good, but nothing amazing
remarks others have made about the location being remote are pretty accurate though as long as people are aware of that, then no problem. service was sometimes a little confusing though adequate. relative to other places i have stayed in the area (some higher end, some lower) it has a little way to go and i am not convinced about value for money here. we were fortunate to get a good deal on the room which, whilst still not inexpensive, meant it was okay. at full price there are better served and better located places to stay.
