“Amazing Villa, with friendly staff, beautiful holiday!!”
Reviewed 24 July 2011

We had the driver pick us up from the airport who was very welcomming and friendly. On arrival at rising sun we were presented with flowers and cool drinks. Wipa the owner showed us to the villa and gave us a tour. The villas were amazing! they had everything you need to enjoy yourself. We stayed with another couple in a 3 bedroom villa with private pool. The setting was lovely and peacefull. We spent time in the pool each day, it was a great size and very private. There was a house keeper who served and cleaned up breakfast daily. The breakfast was great, you had a variety to choose from. Our first night there we were served a meal from the resturant at rising sun in our villas! It was beautiful food, and a great variety. We were also given a complimentry massage which was also great. The husband and wife that own the resort are so lovely and friendly, they make sure your stay is wonderful. All the staff around the resort are very friendly always smiling! the driver was great, you could ask him to take you any where around phuket. The villas themselves are like a home, with tv dvd and sound systems you can relax in the resort and enjoy yourself, there is a little convinent shop close by to buy food. Rising sun is the perfect spot to be away from the busy parts of phuket but close enough if you want to go visit them. We stayed in patong for the first part of the trip which we enjoyed but it was nice to end the holiday and relax and the private pool!! for people who want to go and relax in peace this place is perfect! but you can also get the driver to take you out any time you want to! one day we went to the zoo which was a 15 min drive, and for a phi phi island tour it was a 20min drive to the boat. I would reccomend this place to anyone! cant wait to book and go back!

The owner Methee describes The Rising Sun as like living at home but with service. The villas are beautifully appointed and the swimming pool is only a few steps from the door. The staff are without exception helpful and friendly and Methee and Wipa go out of their way to help you plan your day and make the most of your trip. The location is quiet but may seem isolated to some since it is built on the side of a very steep hill and even if you could physically exit the compound there is little to do immediately outside. This means that you are dependent on the taxi driver who is provided free of charge for 9 hours a day to get out and about. Again we found our driver to be fantastic and we wouldn't have seen nearly as much without his help. All in all we enjoyed our stay here and if you are after a quiet location and don't mind the 20 minute drive to the major beaches and restaurant locations you could do a lot worse than to stay here.

Location
It is up on top of a residential hill in Chalong area that overlooks its surrounding and the seaside.If you are the type that prefers the beach,then this isn't for you. I found out that their location is quite strategic that it is near to some of the spa,such as Cher Aim,Sukko Spa,Tarn Tara and Island and Herb Spa.Besides that, nearest mall is the Home Pro for DIY and Central Festival Mall, Premium Outlet Store and also the T-shirt factory. For sight seeing, Wat Chalong temple is the nearest and slightly further away is The Big Buddha. Kan Eang Pier.

Villa
We stayed at the one bedroom villa during our 5 days stay there and we fell in love at first sight when we walked in.There is only 5 one bedroom villas with a shared pool and we have a kitchenette that we could use and a bath tub other than a separate shower. The villa was spacious enough for us and the fact that our tv channels isn't restricted like hotels do,we have more variety for us to watch. It was peaceful with once in a while, you can hear firecrackers from the Wat Chalong temple late morning or early evening.

Perks
It helps that we also had a driver, Ton, who is always smiling and so friendly and had been driving us around during our stay there. It truly makes our honeymoon less stressful. Khun Methee and Khun Wipa's hospitality is something that you won't be able to get in a hotel who comes and greet us most of the time and giving us suggestions on the itinerary that we had done and coordinating it for us properly. They even suggested to us where we can eat or shop. I didn't get to use the free 45 mins massage though but we did ate at Wipa's cuisine for one night.

Overall,we felt at home and their staff were always friendly and helpful. We are definately going back there to stay.

We were a group of four Persianswho was accomodated in two separte one bedroom villas.Definitly you may find the best part of your Phuket trip %90 only because of "RSR' .An oasis far away from phuket corwdness .We will definitly be back.The only criticisem which did not bother us at all was English weakness of staff aside from wipa's fluent interpretation.
We always remember u as an aristocrat blood originated couple.

Good Luck Meiti and lady Wipa.

We had such an amazing stay at the Rising Sun – we didn’t want to leave! We stayed for 5 nights in the 1 bedroom villa & everything was perfect! Wipa & the team were so nice & welcoming and nothing was ever too much trouble. Breakfast in the morning was delicious & freshly prepared for us in the villa. We thoroughly enjoyed the cooking class - visiting the markets with Wipa is definitely something to be experienced! The rooms were very spacious, comfortable & clean and the pool is just steps from your front door! Being able to use the car service every day was great & Sukan was wonderful!
Thank you to Wipa & everyone at the Rising Sun for a wonderful & relaxing stay – we will definitely be back!
