After getting over my initial (admittedly snobby) reaction to staying at a Holiday Inn, I booked a few nights at the Holiday Inn, Phi Phi Island and am so pleased to have done it. Phi Phi has a reputation for being a party island, but this is one of the few hotels on the remote, quiet end of the island. And quiet it is! The hotel was perfect, in that it was comfortable, understated and much nicer than I expected it to be. This is not the Four Seasons, but that's part of it's charm. It blends in well on a stunningly beautiful beach in one of the most beautiful areas I have ever visited. My bungalow, which overlooked the beach, only feet from the water, a lovely hammock and a swing, was simple but comfortable. After a long ferry ride from Phuket, the ferry stopped a few hundred yards off the beach and several long tail boats were discharged to pick up the passengers and bring us ashore. A lovely and exotic way to arrive! One day we chartered a long tail boat and explored the surrounding islands, stopping to snorkel and swim in several places. The food at the restaurant was not the best, but there were several independent beach-side shack-style restaurants from which to choose better fare. The thing that truly impressed me about this hotel was how they handled a tsunami warning evacuation that occurred during our stay, following a major earthquake in Indonesia. All of the guests and staff were evacuated to the top of a small mountain, where they did an excellent job of accounting for everyone (guests and staff alike), providing plenty of water, food, tarps and blankets and even a big tent, and keeping us updated regularly until the government lifted the evacuation notice. The hotel even provided a free buffet dinner once we were back down at sea level. I am sorry I spent as many days on Phuket as I did, I would have preferred to have been on Phi Phi the entire time. When we left, the staff gathered for their traditional send-off ritual. They played drums and other traditional instruments and all waved goodbye as we motored out to the ferry in our long tail boats. This was a very memorable stay and I encourage you to go.

Stayed for 4 nights and this is our 2nd visit, if you are looking for a hidaway this is perfect, there are no roads access to the hotel is by boat, all the rooms are in bungalows and a very good standard, we ate in the hotel most of the time food was great, they knew it was our second visit and decorated a messege on our bed in flowers, a lovely touch.
We thought the staff were a little more laid back this time there was no urgency but maybe thats what it is like in paradise.

Room Tip: This time we were third row back from the beach and we loved it, lots of wildlife [not in the room] there are some new rooms facing the beach and these look nice

We stayed for five nights in a garden bungalow, located off a wooden walkway overlooking lots of trees and gardens. The accommodation was clean, a little wear and tear, but overall pretty good. The staff were lovely and helpful, whenever we had a problem, like not being able to work the dvd player, someone would be at the door within five minutes to help. The beach was terrific! Beautiful water to swim and snorkel around in, (beach towel, mask and flippers supplied by hotel) plus you could grab a canoe if you felt like a bit of a work-out. I'd also recommend hiring a long-tail with a couple of friends and do some snorkelling off some of the nearby islands, just amazing!

I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. Great amenties, comfortable bungalos (staff have noted our requests too), great staff, not as expensive as I thought (worked out the same or even cheaper to dine in the restaurant of the hotel rather than the restaurants near by).
Have the choice available though.
Pleasantly surprised that there is cheaper transport to the pier then the long tail boat even though only once or twice a day.
Sunset bar amazing.
They have even left a teddy bear in the cot of our 21 months old.
Very very pleased and would definetely visit again.
Only thing (didn't check it myself though) is that it might be worth it to check with the locals directly for some trips as it might turn cheaper and at least they will directly benefit from it not the hotel :)

Room Tip: I would say to look for the new part next to the infinity pool (there everything looked really new ) but need to be aware of the longer walk to the main areas. I also think that the part time ocean view bungaloos had pretty good view so if you do not wish to spend more for ocean view go for them.

We stayed here for 3 nights and didn't want to leave.

The hotel is right on top of a long stretch of soft yellow sand and clear bright warm sea that's great for swimming and snorkling as it's teeming with brightly coloured tropical fish. No part of the hotel is more than a few step away from the beach, which is scattered with trees that give some shade from the sun and have been enhanced with hammocks and swings - heavenly!

We stayed in a garden bungalow in the older part of the hotel. The room was clean and a good size, although was showing some signs of age. The decor and furnishings were adequate but nothing special compared to other Thai hotels of a similar standard, but this was compensated by the large balcony overlooking the beautifully landscaped gardens.

During our stay, there was a Tsunami warning and all guests, staff and locals were evacuated up to a nearby hillside. We were amazed at the lengths the staff went to to ensure everyone was as comfortable as possible for what turned out to be a 5 hour ordeal. Constant supplies of food, water, blankets, towels, carpets to sit on and even ice for one unbelievably demanding guest, were supplied. The staff even built a large marquee-type shelter to keep everyone dry in the event of rain. The hotel manager couldn't have done more to keep us all informed on the latest news as it developed. With such a well organised process, we were amazed to discover that this was the first evacuation that has taken place since the Boxing Day Tsunami of 2004.

We only ate in the hotel for breakfast, but this was fantatstic with as big a range of eastern and western food as you could imagine. With such a large offering there was no need to eat again until dinner, which we took in the local fanily-run beach restaurant next to the hotel just to the north. This served lovely authentic Thai food and seafood in a no frills environment.

We took a 6 hour longtail boat trip around the islands, with plenty of stops for swimming, snorkling and admiring the amazing landscape. This was organised by the hotel at a very reasonable price, as was the transfer to our next destination. This was pleasing as I had feared that the remoteness of the hotel might have led to some profiteering but this wasn't the case at all.

Despite there being no roads on the island, there is a paved path that leads south from the hotel all the way to Ton Sai. I only followed this for a mile or so to the next bay where there is a difficult rough path that leads up the hillside to a viewpoint across to the other side of the island.

The idyllic location makes the extra effort required to get here worthwhile. The staff couldn't have have made the transfer by longtail boat any easier. They even provide a tractor driven trailer and wheeled steps to ensure guests dont have to get their feet wet.

Thoroughly recommended.
