09/03/14 NikhilAgrawal2610 Bangalore, India
Dear Mr. Varnier and Sandra, My wife and I would like to thank you for the superb hospitality, great food - courtesy of Mr. Singh and above all the excellent property that you have. During our stay at your hotel, we felt special, were treated like royalty which I am used to given my up bringing and felt connected to your team and family. We assure you to visit again. Finally, there are no properties in India where you can claim value for the money spent and this also applies globally where I frequent but Amanpuri is an exception. Please continue to delight and make your future guests feel special as we did. Guests and prospective Aman junkies - This is a must visit property and you will be touched by this well trained team.
"Heaven on the Andaman..."

The Amanpuri is to me the pinnacle of an exotic escape. It really does seem to have it all and when we go there in March it is never overly busy meaning you can get the full experience of the beach, the restaurants and the spa without it ever being too crowded but still having an atmosphere. From the moment you are collected at the airport you feel that you are en route to somewhere special with the staff dressed like extras from The Man with the Golden Gun giving you the sense that you are like a Bond villain heading back to your hidden lair.. The white 7 series just adds to it as you are whisked off away from the hubbub of Phuket airport.. In the car you start to peruse the long list of services and treatments available at the hotel and you quickly start to realise that this hotel is not catering for the average upscale traveller, rather the discerning guests who have likely seen it all and need that little bit extra to really appeal to their decadent tastes. The mind training with the Tibetan Buddhist monk definitely appealed and was well worth the visit and something I have put into practise since returning home.. I haven't experienced any 'treatments' quite like that anywhere else.. The property in my eyes is just stunning! It is timeless elegance but still well maintained and peaceful in its design and in the demeanour of the fantastic staff. The authenticity of all things Thai is fantastic, from the beautiful roofs to the wonderful food and cocktails on offer. We tried all of the restaurants but ended up favouring the main Thai restaurant next to the pool which was faultless on every visit. We also had a private BBQ on the beach which was beautifully candlelit to celebrate a year from our anniversary of engagement which we had done in pavilion 105 the year before which had been perfect in every way. When we got engaged here the year before the hotel actually salvaged my plans after Trisara had ruined the start of our holiday and lost all my faith that they could deliver the night of the proposal in the way I had planned. I went to the Aman to see if they could assist and they more than obliged very discreetly while my fiancé had lunch and helped me plan the perfect engagement there. After that this hotel will always have a special place in our hearts forever and we plan on going back every year for the same week as a result. It is so refreshing to go to such a highly priced hotel which feels like good value at the end of it when the bill arrives. Amazing..

Amanpuri is truly an exclusive resort. Beautiful villas - infiniti pools - the best views! Superb service and very good food. The beach is private and exclusive. It makes for a very peaceful oasis in Phuket -
"Magical and romantic"
I will never forget the 10 days that I stayed at the Amanpuri Resort. The staff is kind, professional and lovely (only the hotel manager is not as kind, professional and lovely), they know how to look after you and make you feel special. The Hotel is peaceful, beautiful and comfortable. I will definitely come back!
"6 destinations : this was the ultimate !"

"Romantic and exclusive" those were our instructions to our travel planners over at Andaman Adventures for our sixth and final destination. Well ! They really pulled out all the stops here - the Amanpuri makes you feel like prince and princess of a remote, pristine tropical island. Just coming up to the resort is a big wow factor. Our villa was just out of this world. I don’t know if our travel agent had something to do with the villa we got, or if they’re all really like this – the missus was speechless when we came in ( and that doesn’t happen often hahhaa ). No flaws to report at all : the staff is so friendly and attentive without getting in the way, the entire grounds are spotless, the meals are a feast, every time. No qualms about recommending this one ! and our travel agency for the great rate ! Thanks all !

A small paradise with really exclusive service, beautiful beach, lovely spacious villa, cozy and comfortable. Every evening they play music at the lounge zone, restaurants serve great food, excellent massages. Aman chain is always a pleasure!
We shared a villa with another family during our 5 night stay. The villa was beautiful with a great view of the ocean. Our chef made wonderful food and we enjoyed Thai cuisine throughout our stay. The children also loved then ham and cheese sandwiches made for snacks. Staff service was excellent. Spa experience was generally good, but masseuse skill/service was not consistent, and could be improved. Great experience.
"A league of its own"

You can view the spectacular beaches, gym and accommodation on the website. The architecture is still a masterpiece 20 yrs on especially the black tiled pool surrounded by Palm trees, candles and in evenings thai music live. All this gets clearly pointed out in many reviews and whilst it's important the best way to describe why this hotel has no peer and why the price is justified for me is the service. It's not the usual good service like meeting the manager the chef coming out to ask you specifics on food it the little things. The menu when I stayed contained two types of wagyu beef from Australia both delicious but not quite like the true Japanese beef. I mentioned this causally to the restaurant manager, two days later a joint arrived from Japan itself. When I had massage at the spa perhaps the best I've had anywhere I prefer really deep pressure I complimented the therapist bee. When she found out id booked another on on her day off she altered her shifts to accommodate me. Your not just a number to the aman your like a friend or royalty, many hotels imitate this and I've been to a number but none come close to the amanpuri
"Reengaged with Aman"

We just spent a few days at Aman Summer Palace in Beijing and were disillusioned with Aman. Amanpuri has met our expectations and highlighted what was wrong in Beijing. Amanpuri has warmth, difficult to explain as the staff in Beijing were fine. It's just Amanpuri has lots of little touches that make it superb: At dinner last night the masses of candles round the pool and the live Thai music. The stretching and yoga classes. The flower garlands on arrival and the flowers in the room. Restocking the goodies and drinks whereas we had to ask in Beijing. It's difficult to put your finger on what is the difference as the rooms were different but equally superb it's just the ambience is warmer, probably shouldn't say it but it seems to have a female touch?
"Nice, but not perfect"
We liked the fantastic setting and were more than happy with our upgrade to a pool villa. Very nice architeture and a private Pool larger than many Main pool. Unfortunatly the food and some members of the staff were not that Good like we expected. The first evening we sat in the Bar area ( nice place indeed) . It came to midnight and the ladies made us feel uncomfortable because they to close. A simple polite Last order call would have been nicer. We disliked the food in the italien restaurant. I had baby lobster and the meat was stuck in the shell. Hard to get it out. The kitchen should have prepared it better. The rest was close to perfection, but the whole Atmosphere in Amanpulo Phillipines is better.
