Comfortable pool access experience”
We were having 3 nights staying in The Senses Resort & Pool Villas Phuket, with the 10 minutes walk location to Jungceylon shopping centre and banzaan fresh market. Nice front office staffs to check in and great service from the bells. We enjoyed the pool anytime as we have high privacy of the pool, only 5 rooms for pool direct access of no time limitation on the 1/F. Breakfast provided everyday from 6:30am to 11:30am with good views. Just one thing not good about the lights not enough in the corridor and broken in the balcony. It was a amazing experience in here.
Great Experiance! ”
The Senses Resort was much better then I had expected. I normally stay at The Nap when I am in Phuket, but they were booked at the time of my trip, for a few dollars more I couldn't be happier with my stay in at Senses. It is a newer hotel, so I wasnt expecting the staff to be the greatest but I was proved wrong. I was always greeted walking in and out and after a few days it was on a first name basis. Any Room will have a great view because the hotel was built on a hillside overlooking the whole city of Patong. Food was good but not great except for the New Years Gala Dinner which was pricey but worth every penny. 10min +/-walk to the Mall with many bars and resturants on the way. 15 min walk to Bangala Rd. and 20 min walk to the beach. Walking up the street that the hotel is located on is not for the faint of heart and is all the exercise one might need in a day..Even a tuk-tuk full of people will have trouble making it up the steep incline. That may be the only down fall for some but for me I love the workout. Highly recommended.
It was our first time using the Senses -and there are lots of pluses. We were first put into rooms on the 2nd floor. I wanted a better view so I requested rooms on the upper floors, and we were given them the next day. The view looking down to whole Patong city is amazing! The Senses also has great continental breakfast! Last but not least, guys working at the concierge (probably in the evening and night shift) were so friendly and kind!! My family really enjoyed seeing them every night on the shuttle back to the hotel. The shuttle is very convenient. Thus despite the hilly location, I would really recommend the Senses Resort. We would definitely go to the Senses on our next trip to Phuket.
Waaw... very good resort with very nice & friendly staff.”
The resort is located in Patong city very close to the Big C Mall, the pool villa is excellent and clean, the resort staff are very friendly and very cooperative. They also have a taxi service in the same resort at the reception area which is very easy to move around, I book taxi and went around to see Tiger Kindom as well as Elephants, even the taxi driver was very friendly to me & my wife. I definitely will come back in this hotel and will stay longer days in the villa. No comments... Thank you all Senses staff for all your support during my holiday, please keep it up.
STRONGLY RECOMMENDED !! ”
It was an extremely wonderful stay. It is located strategically near to Patong Beach and Jungceylon Mall. Either 15mins walk or 5mins bike ride, otherwise enjoy the free shuttle service down. One thing to note, climbing back up to the resort can be quite challenging. The staff are extremely friendly, they will always greet you with the warmest smile and service. They always try their best to help us with any issue we have. They really make us feel at home, two excellent staff I can remember are Jacob and Por, two wonderful person that make everyone feel so welcomed. The room is clean and very comfortable, alongside with a supreme view from the balcony. The is also a very nice swimming pool for our swim. Overall, it was a very good stay for us in Phuket. Will definitely choose to stay here again when we are back to Phuket. Hope there would be some good deal for us then. :D
Good, but second thoughts about returning”
When we arrived at The Senses Resort from the Airport, we were initally disappointed to find that the resort seems far away from civilisation and it is located up a steep slope (relatively difficult to walk up). Our initial opinions changed during our stay there. For one, we were well received by the conceirge. Extremely good service provided by them. The staff attending to us takes it upon himself to memorise our names and will attend to our needs whenever we require his assistance. The shuttle bus provided to Jungceylon shopping centre and Patong beach was rather small, so we had to plan ahead and book for a place on the shuttle bus before hand. Our first trip down from the resort by the bus made us realise that actually the Junceylon shopping centre is just 5 mins walk away from the resort. The resort wasn't located at such far distance away from civilisation as we thought. Just that, it can really be quite tedious climbing up the slope to the hotel, without a tuk tuk or the shuttle bus. In the afternoon, we checked in into our room. Simply love the large room and the large toilet! The view from the room would be good if not for the construction in the city area. Love the sky pool and the pool bar too. If not for the steep slope and the trouble of having to plan ahead in order to get into the shuttle bus, I'll certainly book The Senses Resort again.
Great Hotel! ”
My sister and I had a wonderful experience at the Senses Resort. We spent 4 days there and we enjoyed every moment of it. This hotel was honestly worth every penny that we had paid! All of the staff at the hotel were fantastic. We were greeted immediately by the front desk and given a welcome drink. Our room was also upgraded for free! Everyone from the housekeeping staff to wait staff at the pool bar was polite and very helpful. On top of the great service, the hotel room was very spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable. Free Wi-Fi was available everywhere in the hotel. The hotel is not along the coast of Patong beach, but the hotel offers a free shuttle bus to the beach every hour. The swimming is so nice that you will forget about the beach, though. :)
Short romantic break”
We had a lovely stay at the resort. They gave us an upgrade as we were celebrating a special occasion, so we stayed in the suite which was wonderful. The suite had an amazing jacuzzi bath with an incredible view over Patong, and the bed was large and comfortable, and the rain shower very refreshing. Downstairs was the pool - it was large and also had a section for kids, and some of the rooms had direct access to the pool which looked like fun. The breakfast provided was excellent - wide selection of fruit, breads, etc. Had we stayed longer we would have taken advantage of the 2 for 1 massage deal in the hotel which looked great. Though we didn't leave the resort during our stay, the location certainly looked very central and I believe there were regular free shuttle buses we could have taken had we wanted to. The only gripe I would have was the mini-bar/room service - this was quite slow and they had no wine on the menu so this wasn't great for our little celebration, but they did provide a cute cake for our celebration so that made up for it a bit! All in all, I would recommend senses for a value for money, 4* stay that is good for couples and also families.
Fantastic pool access balcony room!”
We were looking forward to this stay for a while. Wonderful photos of the hotel rang true in person, as the new structure is quite modern, concrete grid against the Phuket hillside. The pool was amazing, deep when needed, with a swim up bar and an inifity edge. cool, refreshing and simply wonderful to lounge around on the deck chairs. The room was simple, understated. it somehow almost didn't match the building exterior, but in the quint Thai style things seems like afterthoughts or not planned out. but it did not detract from the stay at all. Fantastic sunlight poured into the pool access rooms, and we spent a lot of time between the pool, the deck, and the room itself. There were hours at a time spent poolside reading, only ducking in during the frequent rains. While we did have struggles with room service, and a shower not fully functional, it did not deter us from enjoying the hotel. We understood it was a new property and that there are always things to work out. It is now our favourite place to stay in Phuket, at least close to the main strip of Patong Beach.
This was my 1st visit to The Senses Resort. I stayed here as I have a planned conference here in 2 weeks and I wanted to experience the hotel. The Senses is on a hill and is terraced into the hill. It has a very steep driveway leading to the entrance. That was the only downside to the hotel experience. The room was great with a terrific view of Patong and a distant view of the Andaman Sea. They have a hidden guest charge of 1500 baht that will bite you if you so inclined to partake in the nightlife. It is oriented to the family and couples and delivers on a good experience. As you are about 15 blocks from the center of Patong and the beaches, they provide a shuttle for your convenience. That was a nice feature.
Hotel with a nice view and fantastic room”
First time visiting Phuket, we are impressed with the exterior as well as the interior of the hotel, everything seems to be quite new. The hotel location is a bit tricky and may not be pleasing for everybody but for us, it is just perfect as we are not after the busy lights and party places. Senses Hotel is perfect for relaxation and getaway from busy city life. Walking distance to Jungceylon mall and another couple of minutes away from the beach, but still remains secluded enough at the foothills so the breeze of early morning mountain air will fill you lungs as you open you glass veranda door. Lovely rooms, everything is perfectly in place, nothing that is seems useless, the glass shower really gives you the feeling of sexy. Staffs a friendly, there are some minor thing that I think might need some improvements like the transport service to the beach and mall it can be more frequent I think though you can book 1 hour ahead a sudden change of plans might prevent you from doing so if you rely on the schedule coz it could take that long to wait if you missed it. The breakfast can be improve as well, it could probably be a bit different every other day to just add more excitement on a beautiful early morning. Overall we cannot as for a better stay in Phuket than we already have in this hotel we will definitely return to this hotel in the near future. By the way, for other people coming over, from the hotel walk to the main road then turn left down the road you will find eateries that are really really good and very cheap definitely worth to try and to have a real taste of Thai food I prefer checking out small eateries nearby, they are amazingly clean well prepared place to eat at a faction of the cost of eating near the Patong beach area.
Tranquility Within Reach”
In their usual trademark cheerfulness, the front desk staff greeted me in my name impromptu and even remembered my room number I last stayed. She corrected me that I was with them for the fourth time, I had thought it was third! Half a dozen staff remembered me and did I also mention that I've been to Phuket for holiday more than 30 times yet this is my perpetual choice of late. I can't see this trend going to change anytime soon! Why ? Anyone who picked Patong wanted to be in the thick of actions, anything and everything that you can read everywhere, I need not elaborate. This resort combines the convenience of distance and the tranquility of peace away from the noise. Cut to the chase, it's situated on the foot of the hill facing the sea with all the bars, restaurants and shopping in between. Among what I read here repeatedly about the awesome pool, workable machines in the gym, alluring view, fabulous service, a sunset bar at the pool to remind you of what you came here for, not many mentioned that it's situated on the last street furthest away from the beach, called Nanai road. It won't take too long for anyone to unravel the hidden charms, made special by a slower pace and a warm Thai hospitality. I don't think I'm being fair without a special mention of the front desk manager, Ms Pare, who took extra effort in every way and being meticulous to my every needs. She knows me and I'm sure she is the lady behind ensuring I got a fruit platter in my room everyday. My friends were so jealous of it but I can only feel happier without any qualms!! I often hear people complain about climbing the small sloping hill to their rooms, I only can offer this advice, “If you wan to see rainbows, you gotta bear with the rain!”
Amazing and awesome”
I had a 5D4N trip to phuket and stayed at the senses resort with my fiance. When I first entered my room, I was pretty amazed with the view and the size of the room. It was very big and the view was fantastic. The resort was built on higher ground hence we had a very good view. As we reached the hotel in the evening, we had our dinner in the hotel restaurant and the food was really good. The room was clean and room service was good and they even tidied the place neatly everyday arranging our stuffs too. Overall it was a very nice and pleasant stay and I would definitely go back again.
AMAZING experience! ”
Thank you to all the staff at the Senses Resort, we had an amazing stay there for our birthday vacation :) My boyfriend and I stayed in this hotel (pool access room) during Christmas for our birthday vacation. The staff are way beyond excellent! All of them are very friendly and helpful. Not only we received a free birthday cake from the hotel, the staff at the front door greeted us by saying Happy Birthday to my boyfriend when we returned to the hotel from dinner on that night! Definitely recommend this hotel to anyone is considering to visit Patong.
Oh !!!!!!! That hill to climb when on foot.”
I did enjoy my stay at "The Senses Resort." Being a new hotel everything worked, was neat and tidy. Spacious room and a great view over all of Patong. Staff are fantastic. Breakfast very acceptable. Funny sign at the pool bar advising that the pool at the shallow end is 150cms and at the deeper end is 150cms. Found a great small restaurant / bar across the road called "Pen & Franks". Meals are superb there. Would I stay at The Senses again ? Absolutely. Rated 9.5 out of 10.
Hotel service excellent easy to way out to the city center nice view from the hotel,especially from the pool side comfortable to be in the room it's a nice stay to be in The Senses Resort Patong Beach,staff are helpful and kind. Will be back for this hotel once we plan to be in Phuket again.
Wonderful staff and great villa with minor issue”
I stayed in the villa with private pool and it was amazing. The pool and villa itself it great! Super clean and big! View was good but not crazy good as there is some construction going on in view. The sheets and blankets were very smooth. The breakfast could be ordered into the room and someone sets it up very nicely and you can call them to take away as well. The bathroom is spacious with the toilet separate from the shower with the wash basin in between. The shower was amazing with two shower heads and excellent temperature and pressure. The view from the bed it quite nice as well. One thing the pictures don't show (or at least I don't remember) is the height of the ceilings. It goes very high so it gives the whole villa a very grand feeling. At check in, they give you the cold towel and a delicious drink and also a wristlet made of flowers which smells heavenly. Then they get a buggy to drive you up to your villa. To go down, you can call a buggy as well but be sure to give them some time as sometimes they tell us it can take 10 minutes or so for the person to come if they are busy. And if you ask them ahead of time for the buggy, I found that they forget and I had to call again to get one. The concierge was great! Super friendly and somehow always knew what room I was from. I signed up for some tours which include pick up from your hotel and the concierge helped connect us to the tour agents. They would proactively come over and ask what or where you are going and when agents come, they will let you know. Everything was clean and their communal pool was also very nice and had a great view. Better than the villa. They had a bar but I didn't get the chance to try it out. Did try their spa and it was pretty good but the masseuses did not speak English so there was a little bit of difficulty there but a supervisor showed up and was able to communicate more effectively. A con would be this one off for me. While I was there, I had a day where I actually planned to
Everything was almost perfect. ”
Our 5days stay was super excellent. Requested for early checked in, but as it it still unavailable, the staff would bring us to the computer lounge amd swimming pool to chill while they are preparing the room. It took us about 45mins for our room to be ready but upon seeing our room( deluxe pool access rm: 1217) we were really surprised. It was really wow! The pool access balcony overlooking the heart of Patong was really superb. And also, we can see the sunset! Food not many choice, but nevertheless it was awesome. Room service, hotel staffs were all very friendly and attentive. Also, theres a staff called Bee, and she was really really good. She was very attentive to our needs and all our demands and expectation were met. And also, thanks to the hotel staff(cant remember the name) for the surprises(cake and champagne) as it was my birthday amd everything was planned by my gf. Thank u The Senses for the good stay. Would definitely recommend to my friends and would definitely come back here again! Kop khun kaaa!

Front desk staff where also very helpful. Will definitely be back in the near future. Well done. Senses Resort.
