“Peaceful spot in Phuket with excellent hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2012

The hotel locates in the tranquil spot which is hard to find in Phuket. Mai Khao beach is long and beautiful, although the time I visited the waves were very strong, and swimming in the ocean was encouraged. The swimming pool on the beach is a good replacement. The hotel architecture is modern, but good taste blending with the nature and surrounding atmosphere. The breakfast is superp and having it on the terrace in front of a small water fall is like being in a paradise. The service is excellent and people who work there are friendly with good attitude. The place is far from entertainment venue and going to Patong Beach or Phuket town is not easy, unless you have a car or renting one. However, if you do not care for those social activities, this place is already perfect for body and mind. It gives a sense of slow, peaceful vibe, which is what I need for a holiday.

Stayed July 2012, travelled on business

On arrival everything was ready for us and it must have been less than 5 minutes before we were shown to the villa. The villa had a problem with the air conditioning, we moved within minutes to a new villa and were told due to the inconvenience(!) breakfast was complimentary and we were also provided free drinks and snacks, what a start !
The service at the beach bar was excellent, free ice cream, constant attention to detail.
The villa is luxurious, the restaurant superb and the breakfast one of the best I have seen.

The staff were genuinely friendly all the time.
Overall a fantastic experience.

Only tip i will give is to get the local taxis, 700 baht for a minbus , there were 5 of us in a 10 seater , modern and clean.

Room Tip: if you can afford it go for the villas which have own private pool

This resort was the perfect way to finish a holiday. Placed on a beautiful beach, this hotel is a must stay. Enjoy a great meal at the Sandbar restaurant where the service was fantastic. Everything about this hotel was amazing (especially the juice bar at breakfast). I wish I was back at this place now.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2012

We stayed four adults and two kids in a three bedroom villa by the beach. The villa was very new and in top condition. A separate living room and three large suites with a very comfortable bedroom and a super nice bathroom. My only concern was that the deck by the pools (yes there were two of them) was not big enough for all of us. The three bedroom villa is actually a two bedroom pool villa with a connecting one bedroom pool villa. However they don't sell the two bedroom villa separately as far as I can see. All the restaurants was very nice and the breakfast is superb. My only negative remark is that you really feel that this hotel is designed on a square plot in the hotel-zone. I would have appreciated larger grounds and a more natural surroundings. You can almost see the architect-drawing before you as you walt he grounds. The Sala hotel next door has a ver good restaurant. Don't miss a visit there. I would say Renaissance Phuket is great if you are a couple staying for a few days to get some peace and quiet. For us as a family with kids staying almost a week I will opt for a larger resort next time.

Room Tip: The pool villas are great value.

Beautiful grounds, kind service, modern restaurants and bar. Next to the JW Marriott, with access to those amenities as well. Loved our stay here for a long weekend. The Thai restaurant was a special experience and quite memorable. It was an experience long remembered.

Room Tip: Express what is important to you at check-in: close to an elevator, close to ocean or restaurants...
