"our favourite hotel in Phuket"
we always start and end our holiday at the Renaissance. They have the best breakfast buffet, the staff is super attentive and caring, the pool is gorgeous with a big green area between pool and ocean. We are coming back here since 2012

"Affordable Luxury away from the Crowds"
We wanted to spend our honeymoon on deserted beaches and unpopulated islands, so we only gave ourselves 2 days and 1 night to explore Phuket. We are happy that we chose the Mai Khao area, which is home to several resorts and is away from the crazy crowds and tourists. The Renaissance is beautiful and has great value for the price. Exceptional breakfast buffet with every option you could imagine. Super comfy beds. We stayed in the pool suite, which had a small pool and deck that were super private. The shower and giant bathtub were modern and well appointed with nice bath products, slippers and robes. We received a basket of fresh fruit when we arrived and the concierge greeted us by name and saw that we had everything we ever needed. All other meals and cocktails we had were affordable, delicious and fresh. We enjoyed the sunset and an amazing Thai massage on the beach. I would recommend it for business/ couples/ families who are looking for affordable luxe or people looking for a place to get away from the crowds. It's convenient to the marina, but kind of far from everything else. I would recommend renting a car. Public transport or taxis are hard since it's far from the action. We took a cab to Patong which took about 1 hour each way. The resort offers affordable shuttle options to Phuket Town and Patong daily. We spent some time in Phang Nga bay, which is very close to the Renaissance via boat and is definitely worth visiting.

"Heaven!"
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.

"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.

"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.

"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,

"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.

"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...)

Although the weather was not so perfect but you can relax in the resort as it has all you need! Love the food and the cocktail sessions at 6pm everyday is wonderful. The breakfast was the best ever selection I have encountered in a 5 star hotel. The prices are high (you would expect in a 5 star resort) but you get what you pay for - high quality. Gym facility is great and I just love the room!

Reasonably expensive hotel but with the best breakfast selection and layout that I have ever had. The problem is the hotel is in the middle of no-where and dinner is best enjoyed at JV Marriot or Turtle Village, which are both accessible via a free shuttle. For a 5 star hotel the main pool area is boring and there is no swim up bar or shade. The kids pool at the other end of the resort is the complete opposite with shapely pools, waterfall, slide and very nice surrounding garden. I'm not sure of the price difference but I would stay at the JV Marriot but not again at the Renaissance by Marriott.

"Beautiful hotel, perfect to relax"
We were one week in this hotel, the experience was amazing, couldn't ask for more! I specially loved the gardens and the pool/beach area, so quiet and relaxing ( and there was a great amount of guest in the hotel, but everything was so well organized that we never felt that the space was crowded) that sometimes all you can hear is the waves in the beach and the birds in the trees. Amazing staff, very helpful and friendly!

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.

"Beach retreat"
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.
