    Was a great place to stay and get away from work in bkk for a few days. Good location, nice staff and some cool things to do at the resort. My only complain is the lack of hose on my toilet, had to use paper like a caveman for a few days but otherwise was a great place to stay.

    Blissful Arinara”

    The front desk actually made thing easy for us during the checkin - we had requested an upgrade and it was made possible. Had requested for a cake to celebrate my wife's birthday and it was already present in the room. Good clean pools for adults and kids along with water polo and volleyball as activities. Bangtao beach is barely 200mtrs /2-3mins walk away depending on where your room is. Ours was room 5114 which was lil further hence took 2-3mins walk. We took pool access pool view room with a small pool and then a big pool for everyone. There are three bars and serve happy hours from 3pm-10pm (different times at different bars) the best one is the one is Dip Bar where one can order cocktails and relax by the pool. Small things noticed and attended to are the things that make it a great place. The staff is excellent and has made our stay very comfortable. Hats off to their attitude of serving with a smile.

    I stayed here for 2 weeks with my GF in May the hotel was very nice and clean. The pool areas was superb. Hotel right on the beach with easy access. There was plenty of choice for breakfast.The BBQ night was very good. We ate here a lot during the day food was alway very good and well priced for a hotel. The rooms were big and cleaned everyday towels changed every day. The staff were nice and friendly. Nothing i could fault at this hotel and the price was great. We had a fantastic stay here and would recomend to anyone.

    I took my dad to this hotel for a very quick 2 nights from Hong Kong. The staff were friendly, the room was great, it's right on the beach and it's only 30 minutes from the airport. Bang Thao beach was pretty quiet and there's much around the hotel. This stay is best for relaxation. Overall we had a great time.

    Fantastic Pool with Direct Beach Access”

    Fantastic Pool, Direct Beach Access, Large Room

    Although its location is a little secluded, the little town within walking distance of the hotel caters to most of travellers' needs. The hotel was a refurbished hotel, but the renovations done were very recent and the hotel feels new again. The pool is their central attraction, and the hotel is directly on the beach. The room can sleep 5 persons with 2 powerful aircon and good heater for the strong water pressure in the bathroom. Their staff was very attentive, and friendly and personalised service with relatively good command of English. We had no problems connecting to the fast internet provided FOC. Overall, although our stay was short, we loved being in Arinara. We will definitely be back!

    Nice resort”

    Nice property, good pools. We had a room with pool access off the balcony and it was good value. Good breakfast. Resort has let a beach club take over it's beach access so if you want a sunbed on the beach in front of the resort you have to hire one for 300 baht per bed. Bang Tao is very quiet, a 30 min walk and you have seen all the town. Plenty of beach restaurants near by, however beaches are only average with a new load of rubbish washed up each morning. Taxi's will also cost you a lot of money if you want to get around and see Phuket, about 800 baht each way to Patong, 700 to airport. Resort runs a cooking class that I cant recommend, for 1000 baht and you just cook yourself a 3 course meal. All ingredients are cut up and in individual bowls and the chef just tells you when to add them to the pot. One of the dishes I made was a green curry and I told the chef I wanted to learn how to make the curry paste but he said that was too much work. Not a lesson in Thai cooking.

    The Staff don’t take care of you as far as getting you coffee at breakfast (like a Mexico resort) or anything for that matter. Drinks aren’t cheap. No coolers or outside food allowed. Main Pool was too hot to enjoy it was about 96 in the pool and 100 dog outside . We had a shaded pool entrance to where we stayed a lot trying to keep cool. No putting toilet paper in the toilets!

    Excellent”

    This is an all inclusive hotel which attracts families with young kids...so Pool is crowded during Xmas season. Some rooms facing parking lot and trees which is not what you would expect after Long distance travelling to Thailand ... We are in our 60’s so felt it was not our best choice despite the service.. Difficult to find a chair around the pool as towels are out just after midnight or very early morning... The hotel does not have chairs on the beach .....This is a must if you enjoy the ocean...

    Overall is great. Should have been more lenient with extra child at 6 yo. Already paid and booked for 4 adults as there is sufficient bed for the 6 yo and can even share the big bed. I can do away with the extra breakfast for this extra child. Otherwise, it would have been perfect, else this would not be my 2nd stay in this resort.

    A great place if you have just left prison”

    Unfortunately, I believed the good reviews and booked three nights. It was such a disappointment. Dirty institutional corridors, aged rooms, people screaming at midnight and 5am. We checked out early despite no refund. I was misled but it was so bad that it was better to walk away than stay longer.

    Lovely place to stay!”

    I was at Arinara in Oct 2018, thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. Restaurants were very pleasant, lovely to have cocktails literally sitting in the pool. Staff were extremely helpful, the only thing that was not so pleasant was the construction work going on in the foyer, but it was handled well and did not bother people too much. Its also understandable that that has to happen from time to time. Overall, really enjoyed my stay there.
