The Ritz Carlton Phulay Bay is simply wonderful. The amenities, the service, our villa, everything was excellent and nothing but first class. We were met at the entrance by the hotel manager and Yik, our butler. Both were very gracious and provided a tour of the hotel amenities. We were very excited to finally get to the hotel as I...

The suite we stayed in was extra-large and was beautifully furnished and decorated. Our butler, was really helpful in meeting all our needs. I was slightly unwell when we arrived and she made some amazing Thai herbal tea which helped to reduce it and made sure it was given to me anywhere we went inside the hotel including at dinner!...
