Awesome hotel next to lonely beach Jan 08, 2016
I stayed at the Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa for just one night at the end of a Thailand trip. I picked this hotel because it's quite close to Phuket airport (maybe 20 minutes drive).
The hotel area is really nice: It's just a big garden, with a small pond in front. The garden leads down to the pool area and the beach, which is totally empty. No crowds there, so nice!
There are a few restaurants and bars in the hotel area.
My room was on ground floor with a lot of trees and bushes in front, so it was a bit dark and not a nice view. But the room was just excellent! Very big and super luxury!
Big bed, couch with table, spacious bathroom with separate shower and bathtub.
The location of the hotel resort is good and bad at the same time. In that area, there's not so much going on. There's the even fancier Sala hotel next door, that's pretty much it.
This means, you get a quiet location and the beach belongs to you, but there's no place to go for drinks or food in the evening, other than the hotel facilities. There were a few street food vendors outside of the hotel premises close to the beach, but the choice was not so nice and it was very expensive.
So think first what you expect from your stay, if you're out for party, better choose a different place ;-)
My room rate included a breakfast buffet which was really excellent.
Unfortunately, I only stayed for one night and couldn't enjoy all this luxury. However, it was a really nice experience.
I'd definitely come back for 2 or 3 more nights. Longer than that might be too boring ;-)
