My husband and I stayed in a pool villa at the Renaissance as part of our honeymoon and it was fabulous...the best resort I've ever visited! This hotel is a perfect mix of modern architecture with beautiful foliage. The breakfast is amazing and the food at their other restaurants was also some of the best we had in Thailand. The service is very friendly […] and the staff go above and beyond to ensure you enjoy your stay. The resort is in a somewhat secluded area with a few other very nice resorts. If you're looking for a beautiful beach, peace and relaxation, this is the place for you. If you're looking for the crazy nightlife, I would suggest staying closer to Patong.

"Beautiful resort along the north shore in Phuket"
This is a really nice resort in the Moi Khao area of Phuket and what really sets it apart is the staff. The staff are all really friendly and helpful and we had a great time while staying here. The grounds are meticulously maintained and have a bit of a minimalistic feel. I would not hesitate to recommend this resort to a friend. It is part of the Marriott […] chain and there is a shuttle you can take over to the JW Marriott which is close by and along the way there is a little shopping area called Turtle Village, which is also within walking distance, if you care to walk there. If you're looking for more of a jungley big resort type experience, stay at the JW Marriott which is extremely nice and lavishly landscaped. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The service was superb and the buffet breakfast was heaven! The pool area is beautiful and the whole experience was unforgettable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small, quiet hotel"
We upgraded from a deluxe room to a garden view villa as the deluxe room was a standard hotel room with no view. The garden villa was great with its own swim up pool. There are only a few rooms (4 or 5) that actually have a partial ocean view...the ocean view villas. The property is set up more around the garden/jungle rather than the beach itself. […] The beach itself is rather narrow and steep with a very strong current (late May). Swimming was not allowed and in fact I was knocked off my feet in 1 foot of water. The included breakfast buffet was very good. Drinks and food were quite expensive, compared to prices at home (US). For example, food is ~US$20 per basic entree and alcoholic drinks are ~$US10. The hotel is ~1 hour from Patong and Phuket City. Overall the stay was great as I had read earlier reviews and knew about the cost of food and distance to other cities.

"Secluded, relaxing, but pricey restaurants"
This hotel is totally secluded from the rest of the island which can be very rowdy. We appreciated this aspect very much. This being said it is most convenient to eat at the resort and not go to town. Breakfast was the best buffet ever and amazing. However, all the other restaurants were a disappointment. The food was not good and the prices were ridiculously […] expensive for Thailand. Staff were friendly and attentive. The beach was great. We enjoyed playing in the waves which you don't get on the other side of the island. The pool was unimpressive and there was no hot tub. The rooms were large and comfortable with nice bath tubs that we used. The water was weird color but that is the water in most of Thailand! We looked past that and enjoyed. All the other hotels we stayed at in Thailand did something extra special for us for our honeymoon (decorations, drinks, cakes, etc... in our room). This is the only hotel that didn't acknowledge it. This surprised me as it was the most expensive hotel we stayed at. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Quiet location and friendly staff"
Very nice rooms at a extremely quiet beach. No beach vendors. Buffet evening restaurant overpriced for what they offer. Breakfast buffet excellent. Beach restaurant good quality for affordable price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"An amazing hotel!!"
This hotel is truly amazing. While it's a bit far from most of the tourist activities, it's definitely worth staying here. The hotel architecture and grounds are lovely and you definitely know you are someplace special. The staff at the hotel, especially Sam and Amm, are fantastic. They are efficient, knowledgeable about the hotel and local offerings […] and are just a lot of fun. The spa was great and since it was the lw season, offered special discounts. Make sure to get a Thai massage while there. The food and drinks were good ad reasonably priced. The breakfast buffet was a great deal and there were lots of choices. Make sure to try the freshly made fruit juices...you can tell them exactly what you want blended. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A lot less than expected for the price we paid."
The hotel is very well located is like having your private beach, BUT pricy, and for the price MARRIOT is next to it and a lot better. The pool is to small for the size of the hotel, Kids pool is the size of my backyard pool. No much to do for kids, If you need to get a taxi is 1600 barts round trip and the only option. Tnere are many hotels around […] half price and very much the same you get here, Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We loved this hotel! Truly had "catered to" feel. They pay attention to even the tiniest of details. Well done!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Incredible hotel, a must in phuket"
I had booked a trip to go to phi phi ki.... Once arrived and saw the hotel, pool and beach.... Cancelled the trip and decided to stay in the hotel all day. Had a massage in the spa which was excellent and pretty much stayed in the beach and pool drinking some cocktails. My wife completely loved itGenuine Expedia guest review

probably the best resort I've been.... the breakfast is defniitively the most amazing experience... the staff is amazing and the food is greatGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very sexy hotel for couples."
This was a wonderful hotel. It's very intimate & cozy. The rooms were very nicely appointed & really sexy. This is not a resort where you'll go to meet other people. I would say that this is a place for couples. It's smaller than the JW Marriott which is down the street. But you get more attention from the staff, who are extremely friendly. The food […] was excellent at the various restaurants. I would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect clean and design 5* hotel"
I was not convinced about the pool on picture, but in real it is really bigger than what you feel when you look at hotel's photo. Probably because of the cool and unusual dark color. Beside, she is very close to the beach (you clearly see the see from it, which is about 50m). The sandbar il also a cool place to have a drink, lunch or dinner with the […] foot in the sand, and the eye on the sea. Guest rooms are very clean and well designed, and hotel personnel is always here to help you with a big smile on there face. I would definitely recommend this place ! (In September the beach looked very nice with beautiful yellow sand, but the reg flag was set up all the week on all this coast side. You can still try to got swimming with the big waves, but at your own risk... September is clearly not the good season for the beach in Phuket, but hotels rates are cheap and you can still enjoy the nice pool with sea view...) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Modern, beautiful, tranquil"
Loved the design of this hotel, it is modern and really beautiful. The only downsides are the distance from anything else except the JW Marriott, and taxis are expensive to come and go. Also, if you are travelling with kids the JW Marriott might be a little more kid friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Remote, peaceful stay"
A beautiful, remote hotel. You have to expect that you will go nowhere when you are here. Prices weren't bad. The Thai restaurant was the best Thai food we had in Thailand. I wish the staff understood English better.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing experience in Phuket"
We booked a room through expedia, a few days before travel I phoned to inform the hotel that we are honeymooners, when we arrived we had the pleasant surprise of being upgraded to a villa with our own pool, outdoor patio and shower, absolutely amazing setup! While the interior has a Thai bungalow setup, it is equipped with extremely luxurious amenities, […] from the entertainment system to the decortion, the huge extra comfy bed, giant bath tub, the whole experience was amazing. The villa was just opposite to an exquisite spa - though a bit pricey but the service is definately worth it. The beach was very close by, a private one in every sense, perfect for bathin and relaxing although currents were a bit too strong for swimming.The food was absolutely sinful. The breakfast buffet was very diverese with amazing quality qand varying station on daily basis. The thai restaurant was absolutely amazing with gourmet presentation for authentic Thai food. Overall the service was amazing and very curtious, the location is far away from town, but for us the serenity was just perfect. it was like living in the jungle with style & luxury The only draw back was that our I-phone disappeared in the room!

"Beautiful and relaxing"
The ultimate in relaxation! This hotel is perfectly located right on the front of the beautiful Mai Khao beach. This is a quiet location away from the busier parts of the island, which is was perfect for us. There's plenty of places to eat & drink nearby. The local grills between here and the JW Marriott do fantastic fresh seafood and the locals are […] all so friendly. Highly recommended. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed in one of the villas with its own private plunge pool. The beach adjoining the hotel is beautiful but the sea is not suitable for swimming because of strength of the breaking waves. I first visited this property shortly after it opened. It has aged quickly and needs maintenance in places. On the food side, Sand Box offers a nice bar/restaurant […] if you enjoy pizza and burgers. However, Takien one of their main restaurants was very poor. The Tom Yum Goong lacked any depth of flavor, the Phuket lobster had way too much salt which made it almost inedible and their chocolate and ginger ice cream was again so spicy it felt like I was eating a Phadi chili. My advice would be to keep away from Takien. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We spent a short 4 night break at the Renaissance. It was just what we needed. Very quiet and peaceful. Very clean. Beautiful big room. The staff were very attentive and unhurried. Fantastic !!!!! Breakfast Buffet. Lovely Spa too!Genuine Expedia guest review
All of the staff were exceptionally helpful and all of the facilities were top notch. Thanks to everyone at the Renaissance, it will definitely be my first pick should i ever visit Thailand again!Genuine Expedia guest review

Totally relaxing, private room with pool just fabulous. Quiet and peaceful. No need to venture out until we wanted to go for meals in the great restaurants in the complex. Sandbox restaurant particularly great in the evenings. It was just a perfect escape from the normal crazy life we have, total relaxation.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value at a off central location"
Overall experience been very pleasing and staff to their best to make your stay pleasant. I booked thru Expedia and there seems to be some check in issue at first and required me to send my Expedia confirmation to hotel email Thought this could have been solved in back office without getting customer assistance. Though this was resolved promptly soon. On […] check in, my room do not have all the toiletries. Pretty disappointing for a 4/5 star hotel. Hotel is located near airport hence away from downtown. I travelled alone hence transport became an issue as the bus provided by hotel requires min 2 passengers (payable by guest). If you are travelling alone in off season. might be a bumper unless you plan to stay in resort during your stay. There nothing much surrounding the hotel except Mai Khong beach which is quiet (nice) though not swimmable. The waves were too strong for me. Still i like it is quiet and secluded. The far away location also means any pick up by travel agency requites additional cost. So do take note of that. Hotel is great for a quiet stay, and breakfast was fantastic. highly recommended. Pool is pretty small, but i went during off season so not much of a problem. Also tried the SPA and massage. Expensive but well worth the price. Recommended. Overall i would given a 5 if not for the little gap here and there. Stay here if you want a quiet getaway, dont mind paying for getting into town and will stay in the resort most of the time.

"Great service & hospitality"
It was a lovely resort for our family of 2 young kids. The staff were very attentive to our needs especially since our 4 year old became sick halfway through our stay. They packed our breakfast for us and sent some cake and note after learning about our sick child. And also packed breakfast for us when we checked out as it was an early check-out and […] we did not have time for breakfast. The resort also had a kids' playroom. And my kids enjoyed playing there. It had free activities for the kids and a great variety of toys to occupy them. We were very pleased with our stay there and would definitely recommend it to all our friends.

"excellent hospitality by quan spa is over rated."
i have never written a review before, however i think this is worth writing. Tony at the front desk was so helpful during our stay. Breakfast, definitely one fo the best in town. Overall the hotel has excellent staff and is very clean and comfortable. My daughter and I went to Quan spa and we were disappointed with the level of service. We paid a significant […] amount for a facial, massage and body wrap. don't spend your money at quan spa, it is supposed to be a 90 mins service and we were done by about 70 mins including taking a shower. we were suppose to get a 30 mins massage, we might have gotten 10 at most 15 mins. save your money and go to the beach side massage for a fraction of the price with experienced therapists.

"A true 5 star experience"
We arrived on a late flight into Phuket and took a taxi to the hotel. The greeting at the hotel couldn't be better, our bags were instantly taken, we were sat down, handed a lovely drink and cold jasmine towels to freshen up. The hotel it self is stunning, the grounds, the rooms, even the bathroom is a wow. Service is amazing, the room was cleaned to […] the highest standard and the staff are a delight. Everything you can imagine is taken care of, they provide beach towels, flip flops, bags, water.....even a torch! The peddle bikes you can take from reception were great, we cycled to turtle village everyday. I could go on forever about this place, I will be staying again and would recommend this place to everyone. Paul Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Stayed 3 nights and had a great time. The hotel is very modern and clean, close to the airport and right on the beach. But what stands out from many other hotels is the staff and the food. The staff is very attentive and professional and they really go that extra mile, at least from my experience. I would go as far to say they are as good or even better […] than 1000 dollar/night hotels we've stayed in. Then the food. The breakfast has all you could want but first of all everything is tasty, fresh and of very good quality. We had a BBQ buffet near the beach, and although not cheap, it was in the end good value if I compare to the prices I would have payed for the same amount in some of the local restaurants in the nearby village , plus you got thai music and dance. Everything was very tasty and of good quality. The Sandbox on the beach was also nice with wood fired oven. Highly recommended and we will come back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely resort away from the hustle and bustle"
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 7 nights and were very pleased with our selection.The hotel staff were all very polite, pleasant and helpful and spoke English well. On arrival to the hotel, we were provided with two refreshing ice tea drinks and given an introduction to the hotel and its facilities before getting a lift to our room on the hotel buggy. […] Our room was a standard room on the ground floor which was well presented, clean with a nice design. The bathroom was also clean, well designed and very spacious with a marble basin and walls. Room service was pleasant and generally quite efficient with items arriving shortly after being requested. Our safe deposit didn't work on the first night which was quickly fixed up by the hotel staff. This resort is nice and peaceful and right next to Mai Khao beach which we loved. The trade off for this serenity was that it was quite far from Patong (around 1 hour drive) and the hotel shuttles had limited times. We went to Patong for 3 days out of our 7 days here. However, if we had to choose again, we would still choose the Renaissance. We visited the neighbouring sister resort JW Marriott via the complimentary shuttle but preferred the calm and personal service provided by our hotel as the JW Marriott is a much larger hotel therefore with a lot more people roaming about. JW Marriott however does have better transport options with complimentary shuttles to Turtle Village. We definitely recommend this hotel!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We were quite skeptical at first because of the remote location but after arrival, the warm welcome and sincere service truly made this the BEST hotel we've ever stayed!!

"Everything went right!"
We had a long weekend to get away from it all. It was the best in years for me. We were made to feel special, the rooms were large and spacious, the Thai restaurant served some fantastic food, and the massage was numero uno. Minor quibbles: not-so-great coffee and tea in the room; reading lamps not well designed for lying down with a book (you need […] to sit up or the light shines in your eyes). I can also recommend phukettaxi.com (not connected to the hotel) - reasonable and reliable airport transfers done online with payment at the end of the journey.
