“Delightful Stay - Highly Recommend”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

My partner and I stayed here for four nights and had the most relaxing holiday in a while.

The excellent things about our stay

1)Our Room: Brand new, decorated like a honeymoon suite and with a spectacular view of the sea. We were happy about the private garden shower and delighted to have access to a second swimming pool that came with a view and less crowds.

2)The Breakfast: A fabulous buffet breakfast that was unlimited and available from 6.30 - 10.00am. There were days when we went kayaking/snorkelling and came back starving and had helped ourselves to juice and fruits for the second time! Their fruits and waffles are to die for!

3)Location: The location was both central and remote. Central when it came to shopping trips to Tonsai Bay, to and from Phuket and remote enough that we felt we were in the middle of nowhere. There are restaurants, small shops and long tail boat services located next to the resort - so there little compulsion to eat and buy everyday stuff from the resort itself.

On one of the afternoons I had a chance to visit the adjoining resorts and having seen the facilities (including pools and bathrooms) I am confident that deciding to stay at the Holiday Inn is one of the best decisions I have ever made!

The not so incredible thing was the service at the restaurant during lunch.
1) On different days, the steward charged us differently for the same vegetarian pizza and was annoyed that we pointed this out
2) When we asked for a Chicken Burger without the chicken (as there was no veggie burger available) they charged us double for ordering a choice meal. We had to reason this out with the manager (as the stewards hardly spoke English).
3) On checking in we had to wait thirty minutes for the golf cart to arrive to take us to our rooms.

While the service at the restaurant were very average, our entire stay at Holiday Inn was worth every dollar. Highly recommended to couples who want to take a break just collapse in relaxation under the sun in the pool.

Room Tip: Choose room 623-626 for a spectacular view of the sea, a garden shower and access to a less crowded...

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...

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...
