Relaxing and Awesome hotel with Philippino interns
Jacuzzi, Interns, Actuvuties
It was my best holiday since I've started my work.
very relaxing place, especially, bathing in the jacuzzi in the night time is the best thing in the resort.
(The temperature of the water was little cold tho. )
My mom, she just loves it.
and I want to thank to the Philippino interns who were alway sooo kind to me and my mum.
They tried to give us lots of tour information and made us smile.
I really appreciate it.
Well, we arrrived the Phuket airport 3am,
so we are scared to find and go to the pier from the airport.
the taxi drivers at the airport are famous for overcharging tourists really high prices, and I feel so bad about it.
If you guys have an airport pick up service, That would be perfect.
except that, It's really awesome place for relaxing.

Underwhelming experience, Fails to deliver.
Good location for a peaceful holiday in Phuket
Good location, but fails to deliver as advertised. An underwhelming expience. Too many rules and regulations. The suites are quite small and the outside jacuzzi is just a novelty feature. Two restaurants, but food and service in each were not upto standard. Transfer by boat is a risky business, There is no safety instruction. One one ocasion the boat was overloaded by 10 persons on a night transfer. The 10 persons were staff!! The management were not too interested when I brought this to their attention. The resort could be a lot better if managemnt is improved. Best feature is the watersports.
Good location for a quiet holiday, but experience was underwhelming

Relaxing stay but needs improvements
The isolation from the main island, the villa/own pool, the friendliness and the view of the sea
although others may find this hotel a bit removed from the main island (as you have to take a boat to get to it), i enjoyed its isolation and possibility to really relax. the villa is excellent and has all the amenities with its own pool which i used everyday. great service and lots of friendly staff. breakfast and the food was good and varied. there were problems with the generator and we had electricity cuts a few times but i assumed it was due to being in peak season (christmas and new years eve). the hotel itself is excellent with great views of the sea. really the only setback is the muddiness of the sea there (the east side of phuket) which doesn't allow for swimming and nobody is in the bay's waters for any length of time. also service although good there was some miscommunication and had my happy hour drinks charged full price but that was easily resolved. i enjoyed my stay but wouldn't go back basically because it needs a few improvements here and there to make it truly a 5 star hotel.
The seafood restaurant at the pier on the mainland is excellent and one of the best in all of Thailand. I went there twice. It may not look great as it is on stilts over the bay but the food and service are top notch. Do not miss it!

Great hotel in a great location
A little off the beater track
Some of the rooms had fantastic views , ours however had no view apart from our small pool.
The pool was nice however I would not describe it as private. The room was great a lot of space however for the price you would expect that. The Hot water however was a challenge, as there was a nice bath I went to use it but I had to reset the hot water 4 times to run a bath and could never achieve a "Hot "bath.
The service was perfect once there I was very happy with the service. The food was good although a bit expensive .

Lovely romantic setting
Location (if you don't mind the boat ride) and the private pool
We got a free upgrade on arrival to a 2 bed pool suite. It was really nice. It was quiet enough at the hotel to feel like we were in a relaxing paradise, but with enough people around for atmosphere. Coconut island is lovely, but probably wouldn't suit people who want to go out and about in Phuket every day as the taxis from the boat drop off are a bit pricey
If you want to get to teh other beaches in Phuket from this hotel, be prepared to spend 800Thai Baht for a taxi from the pier each way.

upgraded to 3 bdr beach front villa great hotel
The island is away from the crowds,food was very good, service excellant and the staff polite and friendly and helpful
This is the second time we have stayed at this resort and we would definately stay again. Even though the small boats getting on and off the Island were a bit daunting the boat crew were considerate and helped us if we needed to be.
Fantasea was well worth seeing

Nice pool and Modern Decor
This resort is fairly new and the decor in the villas and rooms is modern and stylish. The restaurants are good but like any resort, the restaurants leave a little still to be desired. We stayed in a Jacuzzi Suite and it was nice but it's in the back of the resort and down a hill. There are no views of the ocean from these. If you would like a view you should upgrade to an Ocean View Villa. These are great and well appointed. However, our friends staying in these villas complained about mosquitoes or other bugs - they had many bites all over, so protect yourself with the poison. We were there for a wedding and it was beautiful. There were a few hiccups but overall it was a fantastic wedding and evening. There was abundant seafood served for the reception and it was good.
Also, the resort is powered by a generator and sometimes that will go out. They were also dealing with a broken water pipe so this also interrupted some of our preparations for the wedding and the rest of the trip.
Staff are friendly. There are no other restaurants on the island so be prepared to eat at their restaurants more than you might care to. The breakfast buffet is not disappointing and well rounded.
Overall we had a nice stay and we would recommend this resort for a quiet relaxing holiday.

If you want to disconnect this is the place to go
The Island is peaceful apart for the boats
I liked the rooms and we did managed to disconnect, not go anywhere for you are far from the night life. I didn't like the noise of the small motor boat and the ride going to the hotel in the small boat is kind of sketchy... Only go there if you want to disconnect, if you are looking for a place to party this isn't the place.
Hotel Feature Tip:
The beach is really bad, but you are a boat ride away from amazing snorkeling...

Great Hotel But Breakfast is a bit Boring
We stays at the 2 bedroom villa for 3 days, and the view is great. But somehow I found the staff only serving Westerners not Asians. We have to find our own seats in the restaraunts and they never asked us if we want anything even we spoke English, and they were rude to my kids. It's a great get away place and hopefully on the next visit they won't be so racist.
Far from everything so make sure you do your big shopping in Phuket for your visit.
