Great stay!”

Beach front, easy access to other restaurants and shops along the street, friendly and helpful staff, spacious rooms.

My husband and me stayed 3 nights at Arinara Bangtao Beach Resort. Hotel is around 35min ride from Phuket airport, private taxi would cost around 600Baht(Do Bargain!!!). We were pleasantly surprised by the spacious room. Room is clean, although the towels(bath and hand) are a little aged. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Rather quiet area, also due to off-peak season. We also love the fact that the hotel is situated at beach front, although the rooms are either pool view or garden view. Good spread of buffet breakfast, prompt refill when food runs out. There are 2 big pools, newly renovated, 1 other pool is still on renovation. A walk outside the hotel, you'll find restaurants and shops, minimarts, convenient location. 30km to Patong Beach by taxi if you want some night life and night markets. We strongly recommend this restaurant called 'The Bistro', quality and great tasting food - from the entrance of the hotel, keep right, 2 right turns, 5mins walk, tucked at a corner. The only downside is (no fault to hotel)on the last night, there was a group arrival of Chinese tourists, they were on our block, made a lot of noise throughout the night which really disturbed our sleep, extremely annoying behaviours. We hope the hotel management would be able to do some noise control - eg. educate the guests to be more considerate,close their room doors gently and not slamming it, do not shout along the corridor of the guest rooms. Overall, other than our unpleasant stay on the last night, no regrets for us staying here, would definitely come back again!

Best value for money!”

Value for money, child friendly, beach side, buffet breakfast.

This is the best value for your money out of any hotel I've been too. Amazing facility for children with several pools, kids room and playground area within the resort and near it, along the beach, next door. Rooms are clean and comfy. Buffet breakfast excellent! Great pools and poolside bar and restaurant/food options plenty, in and near the hotel walking distance along the beach or on the road where hotel is situated. Bangtao beach is one of the nicest in Phuket and is located at the hotel too with beach shop options too! Excellent location and perfect for adults and children. I will be returning here always. My 2.5 year old had such a wonderful time and I searched all over the internet and this was the best deal! Totally worth it, can't get better value for your money. Everyone was happy!

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.

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!

Great Value for Money.”

Arinara is a little out of the way which is reflective of the price we paid. It IS dated and could use a facelift but the staff were superb and the meals etc outstanding. We grabbed a pool access room which was great for our teenage kids. If your looking for a Bangla Road type atmosphere, best look a little closer to Patong... if you're after a beach resort that's pretty quiet, this might be for you. Check out the beach side restaurants on either side, great food and cold beer with a sand floor.

Great stay at Arinara for a quiet escape”

I loved the Arinara. The cocktails were truly delicious and we just loved lazing in the pool at happy hour. We had a pool access room which was awesome. Great beachfront restaurants and there is massages on the beach. There is not much nightlife in the area and only basic shopping but that was fine by me. Beach was a bit rough for swimming when we were there so we swam in the pool only. Breakfast was pretty good. All in all a great place for families, couples and groups looking for a tranquil location.

Great value relaxing and quiet resort”

Large spacious pools, well set up for families, great value in low season

Had a lovely 4 days with my wife here during the low season. Despite the rain and wind on the first couple of days, it was still a very relaxing place (partly because there were not that many people checked in), and as it is a large resort, it was easy to relax and feel the space. When the weather picked up, the pools came into their element - really big and nicely laid out, and if you have kids it is brilliant as they are safe and enclosed. The location is very quiet, with a few basic restaurants nearby. Otherwise you'll need to take a taxi anywhere between 15mins to an hour to get to other interesting parts of Phuket. The beach was unusable because of the high winds, but in normal weather would be great. Nearby (15 mins) are Surin and Kamala beaches which are even nicer (wider). The rooms are big, relatively basic, but still comfortable. Ours has 2 double beds (!) and had its own pool in front of the patio doors. We slept well and the beds were comfortable. Only minor criticism is the breakfast as it is relatively low quality. There is someone manning an egg station which is good and they make fresh omelettes and eggs. As for the rest, there is a variety of cold and hot food, both international and local, but for the most part they are not that nice. There is fruit which is nice, but it is relatively simple. I felt the breakfast was the only thing that really let this place down. In contrast, the poolside food and Thai restaurant (where we ate in the evening) is much better. The presentation is fantastic, with the food being almost as good as the presentation, but definitely still nice, and most certainly much better than the breakfast, All in all, a very relaxing, simple, good value place.

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.

A Perfect Stay With Small Children”

This is the perfect family holiday location. The swimming pools (4 connected) are a great feature. There's 2 that are very shallow suitable for supervised toddlers. There's very good restaurants near by as well as a few shops to by everything one needs.Rent a car to get around. There is good near by taxi service if needed. The beach is reasonably clean, compared to others on the Southern end of Phuket. Phuket's tourist officials, civic leaders and ALL HOTELS, need to get together to address this problem. I've been visiting the island since the early 90s and there's a lot of garbage on the beaches as well as near by roads. Early morning clean up crews should be sent out daily.

The Arinara is a good place for a short stay. Staff are helpful and good breakfast spread with something for everyone. Only reason we would not stay longer is that the beds we have encountered (stayed here twice for a total of 6 nights in all), are extremely hard. Plenty of bars on the beach and restaurants within short walk. Would certainly stay longer but for the beds.

Quiet Place away from the bustle”

Great location on a nice strip of beach. Good Thai food. Too many obnoxious Chinese tourists.

Overall it offers a great value, if you can tolerate loud Chinese tourists. The hotel is frequented by the Norwegians/Sweds/Fins, Russians and Chinese. Staff at the front desk is average. Staff at the restaurant is excellent. It's about a 40 minute ride from Patong, which is perfect. That place is loud, sleazy and full of Eurotrash. Stay at Arinara of you are looking for a nice beach getaway.
