    Amazing ocean view on balcony jacuzzi”

    Jacuzzi on balcony, quiet location away from the crowd, amazing view

    The resort is built on a hill, hence away from the noise and crowd. Takes 10-15 mins walking up the hill to the resort. From lobby, there is this interesting lift that takes you up the steep hill to the level of your room. Cars and motorbikes can be rented to ease going down to town for activities, although there are shuttle services to town at regular schedules. Takes 5 mins to ride to the beach. Rooms have amazing view of the ocean and the town. New and clean rooms and facilities.

    For the price paid & the news to take a strange cable car funicular to my room. ”

    Bad value for money. I paid US$121 per night for an out of town location on the hill where public transport is non existence. Reception was unable to book a taxi for me on my departure because they needed 1 day’s advance notice !! Insincere freebie offers eg. Free coffee voucher but only from 2 to 6pm on day of arrival. No towel at Swimming pool. Shuttle bus to beach is only one way. 😭😭

    surprise hit in phuket”

    Really enjoyed this hotel. It is true that its far from the beach but the trade off is probably the best view in all of Karon, from either the great pool or your room. If you are looking for something more private rather than in the town this is a perfect choice. The funicular adds a sort of bond hideout feel to the experience which I rate a plus, though I imagine if it was broken as some others have reported it would be super frustrating. Its absolutely spectacular value for the money if you get a deal on the rooms. No problems with the staff except that I feel they "play it by the book" a bit. I think the managers should let them lighten up and use their best judgement rather than follow some strict guidelines of what they can or cant do.

    Two nights stay, I was check out on Feb.16th morning. I had phone called to front desk to pick-up our laggege.(This hotel can't carry the baggage by itself in steep sloping ground.) When I was calling to front desk, "The front desk man asked me to pay if carry the laggege. If don't want to pay, you may bring laggege by yourself." I was surprised seriously. I have no experiance in other hotels in Thailand that Hotel front desk officially request a money to carry laggege I asked at the front desk once again. Is this a official rule in this hotel? A man answered that it was so. It was checked, so I asked him to call Hotel manager right now. Then the answer that his attitude changes completely and he doesn't need money. This front desk man damaged trust in a hotel remarkably. A really disappointed hotel. It wouldn't be used again.

    Great place nicely niched in the hills”

    Nice location with an amazing sea view from my room and from the infinity pool. Nice staff and very helpful staff, going out of their ways to accommodate, except maybe the older one there after 00am

    The stay at the resort was mostly very nice. The staff is always smiling (except the older staff there after midnight). The others did their best to help book an additional night at the hotel + a1 day tour. He did forgot helping us reactivating our card key but it was one little detail. Although our room was in the 8 th building, all the way up the hill, it was fine as there are two elevators to bring you there without breaking a sweat. Plus, our room had an amazing viewof the sea and the place around Karon. Finally, the infinity pool is definately a plus in the hotel where you can watch the sunset sipping on a cocktail. Now the downsides: 1) our driver from the hotel was not there welcoming us at the airport. Had to phone the hotel and when we finally found him, he told us he was waiting in his car.. 2) i saw him falling asleep! (We came on an am flight) Nothing happened, but still. . 3) hotel dîner set is nice and it was just enough for me (I'm 5"1). Not sure it would be enough for everyone 4) no brushes in the room or at the reception. If you have long hair and you've spent your day sweating, putting sunscreen, bathing in sea water, you know it's a nightmare! 5) hotel is 10-15 min walk from Karon Beach, but it offers a free ride from hotel at designated time. Not sure they have rides back, if not, taxi is 200 baht which is quite pricey as the five is not even 5 min. No tuk tuks in sight in Phuket and they don't even bargain!

    Beautiful beautiful view from the hotel room. It was breathtaking. We spend hours and hours just sit on the balcony and enjoy the view. We saw a beautiful sunset from our room so romantic. The hotel room is spacious and clean. It take about 15mins to walk down to the beach. The hotel provide shuttle bus services every hour from 10am to 3pm. Other times u need to walk down yourself. To walk back to the hotel can be a little bit challenging coz u need to climb up hills can be slightly tiring. But we enjoyed walking in the neighborhood. After all for the view u get from the room. Everything is worthy.

    Great new hotel”

    Clean rooms, friendly staff and outstanding views especially from the pool

    We stayed here in May, and it was quite quiet. Infinity pool was great, friendly staff spoke good English, and our room was big with a nice balcony. Only downside was quite a long walk from the beach up the hill, but scenery was worth it.

    For the price paid & the news to take a strange cable car funicular to my room. ”

    Bad value for money. I paid US$121 per night for an out of town location on the hill where public transport is non existence. Reception was unable to book a taxi for me on my departure because they needed 1 day’s advance notice !! Insincere freebie offers eg. Free coffee voucher but only from 2 to 6pm on day of arrival. No towel at Swimming pool. Shuttle bus to beach is only one way. 😭😭

    worth a stay”

    Beautiful Hotel with Serene view, pool is excellent & staff is very courteous. lift is the major drawback, it can be very irritating if hotel is crowded & location is on a hill which makes a walk of 10 mins from mainroad if u don't hv a vehicle.

    Really good place to stay and relax”

    It is not as convenient as many of the other locations. But it might be one of the best for the price. Staffs are nice, some of them are really good at Chinese and English yet, some of them are... bit hard to communicate though they are all very nice! Totally recommend this place for anyone who love to stay away from noise.

    surprise hit in phuket”

    Really enjoyed this hotel. It is true that its far from the beach but the trade off is probably the best view in all of Karon, from either the great pool or your room. If you are looking for something more private rather than in the town this is a perfect choice. The funicular adds a sort of bond hideout feel to the experience which I rate a plus, though I imagine if it was broken as some others have reported it would be super frustrating. Its absolutely spectacular value for the money if you get a deal on the rooms. No problems with the staff except that I feel they "play it by the book" a bit. I think the managers should let them lighten up and use their best judgement rather than follow some strict guidelines of what they can or cant do.

    Standard of room, great view and staff

    The standard of the rooms is excellent and the hotel offers great views of Karon. The infinity pool is fantastic and the breakfast is fine. I wouldn't recommend the hotel if you have walking difficulties, unless you have a car, as it is located on a steep hill.

    room size & design, location, views

    This hotel was by far the best ive ever stayed in phuket, over the past 3 years. If it wasnt booked out after 4 days we would have stayed the whole 3 weeks here. With the exception that housekeeping threw away some used earplugs from the plane i was still using, I honestly cannot fault it.

    Disapointed”

    Two nights stay, I was check out on Feb.16th morning. I had phone called to front desk to pick-up our laggege.(This hotel can't carry the baggage by itself in steep sloping ground.) When I was calling to front desk, "The front desk man asked me to pay if carry the laggege. If don't want to pay, you may bring laggege by yourself." I was surprised seriously. I have no experiance in other hotels in Thailand that Hotel front desk officially request a money to carry laggege I asked at the front desk once again. Is this a official rule in this hotel? A man answered that it was so. It was checked, so I asked him to call Hotel manager right now. Then the answer that his attitude changes completely and he doesn't need money. This front desk man damaged trust in a hotel remarkably. A really disappointed hotel. It wouldn't be used again.

    Great place nicely niched in the hills”

    Nice location with an amazing sea view from my room and from the infinity pool. Nice staff and very helpful staff, going out of their ways to accommodate, except maybe the older one there after 00am

    The stay at the resort was mostly very nice. The staff is always smiling (except the older staff there after midnight). The others did their best to help book an additional night at the hotel + a1 day tour. He did forgot helping us reactivating our card key but it was one little detail. Although our room was in the 8 th building, all the way up the hill, it was fine as there are two elevators to bring you there without breaking a sweat. Plus, our room had an amazing viewof the sea and the place around Karon. Finally, the infinity pool is definately a plus in the hotel where you can watch the sunset sipping on a cocktail. Now the downsides: 1) our driver from the hotel was not there welcoming us at the airport. Had to phone the hotel and when we finally found him, he told us he was waiting in his car.. 2) i saw him falling asleep! (We came on an am flight) Nothing happened, but still. . 3) hotel dîner set is nice and it was just enough for me (I'm 5"1). Not sure it would be enough for everyone 4) no brushes in the room or at the reception. If you have long hair and you've spent your day sweating, putting sunscreen, bathing in sea water, you know it's a nightmare! 5) hotel is 10-15 min walk from Karon Beach, but it offers a free ride from hotel at designated time. Not sure they have rides back, if not, taxi is 200 baht which is quite pricey as the five is not even 5 min. No tuk tuks in sight in Phuket and they don't even bargain!

    Beautiful view,spacious room

    Beautiful beautiful view from the hotel room. It was breathtaking. We spend hours and hours just sit on the balcony and enjoy the view. We saw a beautiful sunset from our room so romantic. The hotel room is spacious and clean. It take about 15mins to walk down to the beach. The hotel provide shuttle bus services every hour from 10am to 3pm. Other times u need to walk down yourself. To walk back to the hotel can be a little bit challenging coz u need to climb up hills can be slightly tiring. But we enjoyed walking in the neighborhood. After all for the view u get from the room. Everything is worthy.

    Room and staff were great but beers by the pool were really expensive . Food was also expensive and breakfast was 80% thai. We only had beers Once at the pool and dined once as well because of the cost. Went down town for everything because of the cost factor. I would go back to hotel because of agoda's price per night was great . Also view and room were outstanding .unless there change beer price at pool From 160 baht and breakfast selection and dinner prices we will just dine out.
