"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

"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!

"Escape the Chaos of Phuket"
A tranquil and relaxing place to stay without giving up the beach, spa or pool. Small enough to seem personal yet big enough to have all the amenities. A great get away from cold weather, rude people and noise.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A little slice of Thai heaven at a 5 star resort."
Splendid! Rooms were gorgeous. Fantastic layout. We stayed in a deluxe room. The large glass bathroom had a god size tub and standing shower with stone bench and rain head shower. The glass bathroom gave us an option of keeping the blinds pulled up all the time which made the space seem larger or you can keep it down to provide seperation between the […] bedroom and bathroom. There is also a sliding door for the bathroom which maximizes the space. Beside the bed, there is a lounge couch to sit or lay on. The bed was grand. Elegant bedding, soft pillows and super comfortable mattress. I fell asleep within 10.5 minutes each night. Balcony provided. Resort has a large infinity pool with sweeping views of the Andean Ocean and white sand beaches just 20.2 seconds walk away. The resort provides a private beach access with a long strip of Mhao Khao beach. No crowds at all. I am still jet lagged from my trip, tired and staring at a delicious American Cheeseburger (after 2 weeks of Thai food) so I will return later to finish this review.

"Comfort and luxury in Phuket"
From the minute I stepped out of the taxi at the Renaissance Phuket Spa Resort, I was treated to an amazing experience. The staff at the outdoor registration desk were pleasant and helpful. I was greeted by the staff and handed a cold drink and scented towel to refresh myself. I was driven to my room which was amazing - beach view, balcony, down pillows […] and duvet. I received fresh fruit in my room every day. Housekeeping kept my room immaculate. The food was great at all restaurants in the facility. Especially enjoyed the sunset cocktails by the pool at sunset at the Sand Bar. Prices were very reasonable - staff was able to recommend tours and shopping sites that were exactly what I requested. The massages in the Quai Spa were some of the best ever. Be sure and ask for the reflexology foot massage. In summation, I will definitely stay at the Renaissance the next time I travel to Phuket. I could not have selected a better place to stay - beautiful beaches, beautifully maintained grounds, knowledgable staff, wonderful surroundings. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Superior Service: true 5 star!!!"
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!! The beautiful landscape and awesome facility was beyond expectation. All the staff were super friendly. The only drawback would be the inconvenience of going to the town center which […] is 1 hr drive away. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"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.

"quiet and nice hotel, very epensive wine and food"
expensive food and drink for a thailand hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were amazed that everything can be found right in the vicinity of the hotel including cheap and good thai massage right at the beach front. The breakfast was worth a mention as well. Nothing to complain about.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One of the Best."
Our stay at Renaissance Phuket was a first class experience. It started with the quality and depth of staff training and ended the same way. The hotel is a modern, elegant and beautiful place to be in sun or rain. The rooms are very private and have a nice view of the lake and garden. We would certainly return.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Resort and Spa, oustanding 6 days"
Top Hotel, Top Services and super friendly staff. Every wish was fulfilled. Great Spa. Only small improvement to suggest would be to do a daily cleaning of the beach. Knowing that waves caused some extra stuff on the beach some major parts coming over night could easily have been removed. Still a perfect 6 days in a great hotel with outstanding se […] rvice Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel, but next to a construction site."
There was noisy construction going on next to the left wing we did not know about. We managed to change our room after two nights, to the left wing, and it was much nicer. Shuttle to Marriot could be done using a bigger vehicle and be more on time. We had to take a normal taxi once as there were too many people waiting and the shuttle was late any […] way.

"GREAT LOCATION, GOOD SERVICE"
This is the most pleasant stay and accomodation that my husband and i had of the 3 trips (4 hotels and location) in phuket.. We love the tranquility of the beach and how the hotel stretches to the beach without having to cross any roads. Rooms are value for money and breakfast is delicious. This is the only hotel so far that we had stayed in which offers […] honeycomb during breakfast. Thought the spa price was a bit pricey as compared to some other hotels and hence we have given it a miss this trip. Overall it was a great holiday for us in Phuket although it was a bit short (2 days at Renaissance). We will definitely stay for a longer period at Renaissance for our next trip as there are many areas to explore to the north of Phuket. Cheers and thanks for a wonderful experience.

"Great hotel, shame about the beach"
The hotel is beautiful, modern and very quiet. The rooms are very nice and new, large bathrooms. We enjoyed everything except for the beach, unfortunately you can not swim during the low season because of the waves, however to be fair most of the Phuket beaches have red flags at the moment..If the beach is not important don't hesitate booking the hotel-it's […] beautiful and the breakfast is one of the best I ever had, truly and incredible choice and quality!

"Great resort, highly recommended."
Stayed for 10 nights in June, during the monsoon. Hotel is incredible, nothing is too much trouble for the terrific staff and the room and facilities are top notch. We had a top floor (4th) Deluxe Room, overlooking the grounds. Couldn't see the sea or the waterfall, but that didn't matter, it was superb. Weather was very wet for 6 days, then dried up […] a bit, it's quite unpredictable and forecasts are hopeless, so just go with it and be prepared to get a little soaking now and again, it's warm all the time so not too uncomfortable and you dry off quickly. As mentioned by others, get the buffet breakfast included rate, you will not regret it! Lunch, dinner and drinks are expensive though, but there are two hut restaurants a few minutes walk from the resort (shortcut through the grounds of neighbouring Sala resort), both have identical menus and are extremely good, a third of the price of the hotel restaurant. Note that if you plan on stocking up with snacks and supplies in your room, the only place nearby is the Turtle Village mini-mart (20 min walk each way), it too is expensive so you'd be best off arriving at the hotel with a bag of goodies to keep you going. Highly recommended. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We reserved for island hopping half day program, leaving on Sunday 8am through the hotel. When we got to the hotel lobby on Sunday morning, the hotel staff told me that the bus was on the way. After waiting 20 minutes, I asked him again about the bus, then he called the island hopping service provider and told me the trip was cancelled because of the […] weather. So we booked afternoon trip, and he would let us know 1 hour before departure. Because we were at the kid club, I called the lobby 50 minutes before departure, and the hotel staff told me that the afternoon program is not cancelled. However, when we got to the hotel lobby 10 minutes before the departure, the staff told me the afternoon trip was also cancelled!! We basically wasted whole day. I don't recommend going there during rainy season. There is not much to do.... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful relaxing holiday"
Hotel is beautiful and modern a bit far from town, shops, and other beaches. We wanted a relaxing holiday so this was not much of a problem for us. The beach is not great because sea is quite rough and I was expecting calm sea, and they dont have sun beds on the sand I dont know if this is a safety thing due to the high tides. The condition of the hotel […] is really good and staff are kind and helpful, however english is not good and hardly understandable so be prepared to make an effort in that area. The pool area is not too big but it is very nice. Food in general is fine, the best experience was their own Thai restaurant, it was amazing, also you should try the spa.

"Lovely stay in a beautiful hotel"
Just came back from a lovely stay at the Rennaisance. Was greeted on arrival and led to my deluxe room and the check in process happened there and I had arrived early at 10.30am but there was no problem getting into my room. They asked me to join the Marriott rewards program in order to get free wifi which worked very well. Beach was great as was lounging […] around the pool, food was good but not fantastic, service was wonderful. The only problem I encountered was when my shower flooded as there was a blockage and the water spilled out into the bedroom and soaked the carpet. I would stay there again....

"Great hotel in a nice part of Phuket"
Fantastic hotel - great place to stay for both couples and families. Located away from the sometimes not-so-nice bits of Phuket in a very relaxing, quiet and secluded area (having said that, its easy to get around the island in taxis). The beach is beautiful and secluded - although the sea can be a bit rough - the pool area provides a good substitute. The […] property is relatively new and very well maintained - rooms are good and nicely appointed. Service is friendly and prompt. The restaurant choices can get a bit boring after a while - but that's in the case of every resort and its easy enough to wander to the many restaurants at the five star hotels next door or take a cab to one of the restaurants frequented by the locals. The best part about the hotel is a local group of masseuses that work just off the beach, right next to the hotel's restaurant. They charge a fraction of what the hotel's spa charges and are just as good (if not better). One could literally get a day's worth of relaxing massages (if you were so inclined) by walking literally 10 feet from the hotel's lawns! Fantastic! All in all - a nice and very relaxing 5 star hotel to stay at. Recommended! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A quiet spot... Outside the school holidays"
Lovely spot. Decor is lovely but finish not to the same standard as your usual Marriott. Food on site is excellent. We were there at Easter and breakfast was quite over sub-scribed - we had to queue 2 days out of 3 and it was very noisy with lots of families (school holidays). For couples I can imagine it's perfect outside the holidays. It is a quiet […] spot with not much around it - perfect for a weekend of lazy R & R. But the Marriott at Khao Lak I find better value, and although also v family centred it's so big you can always find a quiet spot, even for breakfast. Downside there is it's much further from the airport and restaurants etc of the Phuket area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Quiet, sophisticated, chic"
Stayed one night only in March 2013 because we were flying out of Phuket early the next day. Stayed in a standard room adjacent to the lobby. It's quite a large resort, but design and fittings are luxurious, contemporary, chic. We stayed only one night so didnt avail ourselves to too many of the hotel's amenities. The grounds are beautifully landscaped […] but not stuffily so. Very laid back, relaxed atmosphere about the place. Miles of beautiful beach - public, but still quiet. Good for swimming, though we were warned to beware of jellyfish... not sure how to do that though! Had diner & breakfast at Vera Loca, their coffeehouse. Food was good, a bit pricey though not unpleasantly so. Breakfast buffet very good. Staff generally very helpful and friendly. The room was of a good size, with great day-bed for reading and chilling. Bathroom is separated from the bedroom with huge glass panels with venetian blinds. The blinds can be lowered for privacy, but it takes some patience and muscle. Rain shower could do with more water pressure. Stay here to relax, to read...etc. Very cool, romantic. Stay elsewhere if you're the active type and are looking for nightlife. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great resort, will be back!"
Have just returned from a lovely stay at this hotel. The staff were warm and friendly and accommodated our every need. The hotel was clean and is well laid out, with a great sense of space - more often than not you would only ever see a handful of people walking around the resort. The breakfast buffet caters for all and the a la carte menu (at all the […] restaurants) is reasonable, although some will think the prices are not. We stayed in a deluxe room on the 4th floor overlooking the lobby and main restaurant, basically a birds eye view over the resort. Didn't stay in any other room so have nothing to compare ours to but we couldn't have been happier with the comfort, layout and location of the room. The Quan Spa is great and I would recommend anyone wanting to unwind to try it once. The massages down by the beach are also a good cheaper option. The gym has enough equipment to give you a good workout, with a steam room in the mens bathroom and a sauna in the womens. Mai Khao beach is stunning, have fond memories of early morning swims in the calm, warm waters. There is a sharp drop off into the Andaman sea so if you are not a strong swimmer do not venture out too deep. There are also some great little restaurants approx 10 mins walk from the resort, which are much much cheaper to dine at (for those on a budget) but really good food. All in all this was a fantastic holiday and I would recommend anyone visiting Phuket to book their stay at the Renaissance. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

fantastic accommodation in an incredible location with very helpful staff. The hotel always felt like an exclusive experience as there is plenty of space and time to relax.

Lots of choice in a beautiful relaxing setting.Genuine Expedia guest review
"5 Star Hotel"
Stayed 3 nights. Beautiful hotel and stunning entrance. Have stayed at many 5 stars hotels and this compares well. Loved the Thai restaurant. Also ate at the sister hotel (JW Marriott) a 5 minute shuttle ride from the Renaissance - can recommend the Japanese. Easy 15 minute transfer to airport for 500 Baht. Would definitely go back.Genuine Expedia guest review

"The Best of the BEST< go Marriott, what a Honeymoo"
Renaissance is a Marriott property, newer and better than the main property. It is one of many on this particular part of this beach, but it is the newer one and it is just spectacular from the first moment we saw it at 3am in the morning after a delay flight. Service, cleanliness, food, view, ocean, pool are just second to none. Just absolute peace […] and tranquility. God has bless this place, or good design. WOW. I stilll can not believe how beautiful it is. A little far from the main place of Patong beach city, and Phuket city about 30 min taxi ride, but a tranquility and peace is why I came and boy did I get the full load. A nice pool ocean front, two ocean front restaurant of Thai and Pizza. It just don't get any better. New property, so it is clean and modern. Shuttle to the nearby strip mall is a bit inconvient so that can be improved. Bravo and well done, GO Marriott Renaissance. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"WOW! Honeymoon Heaven! 5 * PLUS!!! FANTASTIC!"
I cannot begin to express how grateful I am to all the staff at Renaissance Phuket Resort Spa. I visited between 18th July 2012 - 24th July 2012 for my honeymoon and I don't think I could have made a better choice. They did something different and special for us everyday (don't wish to give away too much). I went for my honeymoon and the hotel is breathaking […] (and I've stayed at a lot of 5* hotels) Staff are simply amazing, food is fantastic. I would highly recommend everyone to opt for breakfast included and the private BBQ is a MUST! Everything about this resort is 7* + and I honestly believe that this gem is very underpriced for the service and quality you recieve. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
