“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

We stayed at the Renaissance 11- 13 February and we could not have asked for a better experience. Staff were very friendly. Surprised us with an free upgrade to a huge suit. The grounds are beautiful. Nice quite beach. Great food! A little on the pricey side, but absolutely worth it. Best breakfast buffett we have ever (included in room rate). We highly recommend the Tandoori theater dinner cooked in outdoor wood fired tandoori ovens and served up on great makeshift tables set up in the gardens near the beautiful infinity pool. A great selection of meets, vegatibles and naan served up straight out of the oven. Was like an Indian barbeque-heavenly and sumptuous. Thanks Rennaissance. Will definitely go there again!

Rooms are very nice, bed is comfortable, and it is very close to the airport. I didnt spend much time here, as again I was not supposed to be be staying on Phuket, and last minute had to rebook another night, so what I seen I liked, and I would for sure come back to this hotel again

This was my 5th trip to marvelous Thailand and I can not say enough good things about this wonderful resort. The location ( right on a pristine, private beach) and the facilities and staff all contributed to a great experience. I arrived very late, but was greeted with a smile and from then on the service could not have been better. Every employee, every single one had a smile and a greeting and were so helpful. The spotless room was large, tastefully decorated and included a full bath tub, separate shower and a lovely comfortable bed. I spent a lot of time reading and hanging out in the pool and thoroughly enjoyed the meals and drinks, especially the complementary flat bread and two for one happy hour. Early morning coffee americano's were also very memorable. A real 5 star experience and I will return.

Rooms are very average looking for the price you pay. Do not expect much privacy in the bathroom, staff is unfriendly(very rare for Thialand) you have to argue to get what you suppose to get. Food is not tasty. Overall I strongly recommend to avoid this hotel and choose something near by. Very far from the city be prepaired to spend a lot on cabs.

Room Tip: demand what you were counting on ...close to the beach do not agree to settle for less,but do not lo...

This hotel is only for people who can and want to relax.
Great modern hotel based at a great beach.
Like someone wrote before, this hotel could have been build anywhere in the world. No Thai design. But still the architecture is great.
Be aware this hotel is in the middle nowhere. Only the Marriott hotel is not to far away and the Sala hotel is next door.
If you do not care about eating in the hotel you are able to eat next to sala @ lokal restaurants. They charge you between 100 to 150 bath for a main. We actually enjoyed this more then the hotels.
The rooms are large and the bed is great. Very comfortable.
My personal idea about the rooms is that perhaps they are a bit cold, design wise. But believe me, staying here for a week made me want to stay another.
One thing we did not like is the charges and not very frequent shuttle services to the rest of the island. There is a shuttle to Patong beach but not very frequent. They really should improve this and also make it free. 350 bath is steep for thailand. (But not for Phuket)
The simple reason is that now you are so deserted from the rest of the island, people might not book this hotel. If you provide a good connection guests will find it easier to stay here. This reason nearly made us not book this hotel. (but we are very glad we did)
And they do not provide a free shuttle service to and from the the airport. Only by private taxi. I do not find that Thai 5 star worthy.
