"Transported"
This hotel has some magic about it! The place and the views are enchanting, a place to commune with the sea. Exceptional dedication from staff, especially Dao and other main reception ladies create an out of this world experience which is very hard to find in today s sobered up and material-guided world. The certain seediness and certain disrepair in some of the hardware of the place are part of this experience. That s just how Kata Karom area is. Afternoons bake up the place, as anywhere in the sun, the AC easily copes with that. The value comes from the closeness to the sea and these great rocks which the hotel stands on. Rate adaptions also in this property are not unwelcome, especially since Thailand senselessly keeps moving up over imoral yield levels in its tourism enterprises especially in the last 5 years. It s almost savage anglo business circumstances there now, where is the Thai-ness and -identity!

"Million dollar view!"
Stayed in room 303. The view is truly amazing. The service staff were polite and efficient. Food was great as well. However, as with a lot of other reviewers, I agree that the hotel is in need of touching up. Floor boards to the pool has chipped off in multiple places, lights was not working in the pool (but swiftly resolved) etc. but that didn't marred our experience. We had a great time and will alway remember this resort simply just for the great view.

"Mixed Experience"
I'll start with the pro's: Very nice rooms, modern and well kept. Good view of the beach and sea. Next door to Mom Tri's kitchen. The best restuarant we went to in Phuket Ok so now to the bad: My experience was made unpleasant when one employee told me i could checkout late at 3pm (free or charge) in another room (as our room was booked) When the time came, another employee told me we could not stay in another room free of charge. This disrupted my plans and scheduling for the entire day. The other employee had given me the wrong information as they were knew. And I find that understandable. What really got me angry was that the current employee nor the hotel did not take any responsibility for the mixup and they insisted that I could only stay till 1pm, insisted that I chill in the library or the 'secret room' This hotel is overpriced. The other two places i stayed was half the price with double the service

"Better than expected"
We stayed in the "Impiana Private Pool Villa" which is very spacious and well equipped, with the best view from the hill top looking down onto the Karon beach and the ocean. The room is clean but do need some maintenance (e.g. one of the socket doesn't work, some pipes are not fixed onto the wall, some parts of the floor were worn out). Services are impressive. The scale of this hotel is small with only 11 villas - pros and cons - since it's so small it could not benefit from economies of scale and the price is thus high, and virtually no common facilities or amenities (save for a tiny gymnasium), but with a limited number of guests it means it is in general very quite and private (of course, depending on your luck and who are the other guests visiting there at the same time with you). Though located on the top of a small hill it is very accessible and both Kata Noi beach and Karon breach could be reached within 10 or 15 minutes walk, with abundant of shops and restaurants located along the Kata Noi beach. One hint: since the hotel was built on and along a cliff, the view and floor plan of each room vary greatly with the landscape and height. Some rooms have real stunning view and large space while others may not have a view as good (but usually with more privacy), so you may ask the hotel for more information when deciding which room to reserve for.

"部屋は素敵"
昨年・今年とプーケットに2回目です。 今回他のホテルに5泊後、こちらに2泊宿泊しました。 ホテルはこじんまりとしていますが、プライベート感はあります。 ホテル全体的なゴージャス感は薄いですが、部屋は素敵でした。 アメニティや、小物まで気を遣われていて、部屋自体は文句なしでした。 プライベートプールも子供が安心して一人で入れられて、 海もきれいでよかったです。 ただし、ルームサービスで食あたりになりました。 食事は清潔感があったし、私以外の家族はなっていなかったので体調、体質によるかと思いますが・・・ また、2日目のハウスキーピングの後に歯ブラシが置いてなかったり、 タオルが足りなかったので、サービスの部分では5つ星にしては少しがっかりしました。 部屋以外にはホテル内にこれといった施設がないので、 宿泊2日がちょうどよかったかなと思いました。 子供はとても気に入っていたようなので、 もしかするとまた宿泊するかもしれません。

"Beautiful and relaxing"
Beautiful and peaceful place. Very short walk to Kata center and steps down to the nice Kata Noi beach are nearby. Relaxing view from the private pool of the room. We had room number 2 and it needs renovation after (apperantly) a major water leakage. Bathroom is big with jacuzzi. Annoying that the not working light bulb in wc room was not changed although asked for this. Lots of shelf and storage place. Staff very friendly. Hotel arranged taxi to Phuket airport on our request, which was conveniently added to final bill (good car, 1200 bath). Maybe because outside high season there were no buffet at the breakfast but we were given all we wanted from the menu. All in all; a very plesant stay.

"Man braucht etwas Optimismus"
Alle Zimmer sind ausgestattet mit einem eigenen Pool. Zahlreiche Bewertungen berichten ausführlich über den Zustand, den ich hier kurz zusammenfasse: Die Zimmer sind abgewohnt. Das wussten wir und ich finde, dass alles immer schön sauber gemacht worden ist und daher nicht zu stark auffiel. Die beiden Grand Suites sind schön abgelegen. Wir hatten die südlichere Grand Suite und waren sofort von der Aussicht begeistert. Wir hatten unseren Aufenthalt verlängern wollen und sind daher noch in den Geschmack der etwas kleineren Deluxe Suite gekommen. Diese befinden sich im Südflügel auf den unteren beiden Etagen. Der Service ist Thailändisch. Man wird überall freundlich begrüsst und man ist stets bemüht es einem Recht zu machen. Die Lage ist perfekt. Ruhig aber nicht abgelegen. Das Impiana befindet sich zwischen den Stränden Kata Noi Beach und Kata Beach. Von und zum Flughafen hat man etwa 60-90 Minuten. Mit dem Impiana konnten wir einen Transport für 1'200 THB pro Strecke arrangieren. Wir waren bei der Ankunft echt begeistert. Die schöne Anlage, die Aussicht, die netten Leute, der tolle Pool. Nach und nach kommen so kleine, negative Sachen dazu. Echt doof fanden wir dann vieles nach unseren Umzug in die Deluxe Suite und da fängt dann das pingelig sein an. Ich glaube für so vier Tage Phuket ist das Impiana Private Villas in Kata Noi echt toll und einen Besuch wert. Für einen langen Urlaub sollte man sich etwas suchen, wo das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis etwas ausgewogener ist.

"Worth a lot to stay"
This is the best hotel i ever stay in Thailand. We was upgraded to a bigger room on the first night (actually we think the one we book is better since the pool os longer) The size of the room is too big for us but we get used to it after staying there for 3 nights. The size of the private pool of the family suite(the one we booked) is as large as a normal public swimming pool. The angle of the seaa view is the best we ever seen as well!!! The location of the villa is very good as it's not far away from the main road with restaurants and shops but a little bit just away from the crowed area. Every morning we enjoy the breakfast with sea view at the outdoor area. They also serve breakfast until 11:00 so we don't need to get up very early. I can only say it's worth too pay to enjoy my precious vocation in Impiana!

I stayed at this fantastic place only one night to plan a longer family trip next season. I was allocated the honeymoon suite which was an incredible experience. I have been to 96 countries in the world but few hotels and places have charmed me as much as this. The hotel itself is more a private villa than a hotel. They have something like 12-13 rooms each with a private infinity pool and a lot of space. The suite I stayed at had all you could imagine and need for a wonderful stay.

Comfortable, quiet and private. And still convenient to reach the local sights. It was just five min away from Kata beach on foot. I could enjoy walking along the beach and eating out. Its hotel service was nice. But in my opinion, the price is little high in spite of these suroundings. If you want a special event of life, it will be fine to stay.

"1泊だけの贅沢な宿 プライベートプールの海との一体感が最高!"
カタに3泊しましたが、その1泊目にこのホテルを利用しました。プライベートプールの海との一体感が最高!奮発してよかったです! ◎客室 / ホテルの清潔度:とても清潔な状態に保たれていました。新しいホテルではないので、プライベートプール周りの外装(デッキやペイント)に少し古ぼけた感じがありますが、プールそのものはとても清潔で快適でした。部屋は天井が高く落ちついた感じの高級感があります。シャワーの水圧やお湯の出なども満足でした。◎サービスの品質:当日は私たち1組のゲストしか宿泊しておりませんでしたが、とても丁寧なおもてなしを受けました。朝食も部屋のリビングにセットしていただき、その時もとても丁寧な対応でした。日本語はおそらく対応不可だと思います。スタッフの英語力はとても高く、不便なくコミュニケーションができました。 ◎ホテルの設備:ホテル内にレストランがあります。ウエディングパーティープランなども対応なリゾートですので、レストランの料理の幅もタイ料理から西欧料理までメニューがあります。 ◎ホテルの場所:カタヤイビーチ(カタのメインビーチ)とカタノイビーチの間の岬の上に立地しています。カタの繁華街までは、坂を下って10分〜15分で到着します。カタノイビーチまでは徒歩10分です。カタヤイビーチまでは13分ほどです。海に面した崖に立地しているので、各部屋が階段状に位置しています。ホテル入り口が最も高い位置にあるので、フロントや各部屋には階段を下る感じになります。階段が多いので、お年寄りの方にはお勧めできないと思います。フロントでソンテウTaxiを手配してもらえるので、それでカタの繁華街まで行けます。

최고의 풀빌라. 프라이빗하고 서비스좋고 최고의 경치를 제공하는 멋진 풀빌라네요. 아쉬운점은 양쪽문이 다 유리문이여서 오션뷰가 한눈에 보여야했으나 유리문이 깨진건지 반쪽을 나무로 막아놓은 방을 저희에게 주었네요. 모르고 하룻밤보내고 알게되서 다음날 룸교체를 원했으나 예약이 풀이라서 대체해줄 방이 없다해서 반쪽짜리 오션뷰 방에서 묵었네요. 룸에 들어가서 양쪽 유리문을 잘 확인해보시길 바래요. 조금 아쉽긴 하지만 정말 친절하고 좋은 호텔이에요. 결혼 1주년기념 여행으로 간건데 2주년때도 또~ 가고싶네요~^^

"Paradise... the photos don't do it justice... it's better!"
12/27/15 Chris C
We stayed in the "Impiana Villa" for 3 nights which is located on the top floor of the north wing. The private infinity pool has views out to the sea and around to Kata Noi beach - it really is amazing and the photos do not come close to doing it justice. The pool and view is really what makes this villa amazing. The villa is large, with a dining / living room with doors opening out to the pool area; and a separate master bedroom with a living space (couch, table, tv), and a large en suite bathroom (separate shower and bath) and walk in wardrobe. I was worried about maintenance issues based on some TripAdvisor reviews - and while yes I would agree that the property could do with a little handy work and an interior refresh - it is really a minor issue (example in photos). All the usual amenities in the room that you would expect - including in built international power points, ipod connectivity to the speakers, mini bar, free good wifi. The service is mostly great, although a little mixed. I do applaud Joy the manager who was very helpful with a mix up on the room charge, and the staff were very friendly and happy to assist (our driver was great - unfortunately can't recall his name, his English was limited but made a great effort to communicate, and always had a smile on his face and did a great job driving); but there were some small service issues (tardiness with house keeping even when make up room sign on, room service plates sitting outside for hours etc) that are normally better managed a little more proactively and attentively at a property with this sort of price range. We had breakfast in our villa every morning (a la carte delivered to the room) which was great. The options were basic but done well, so we were happy to dine in every morning. Otherwise we didn't eat at the restaurant as there are so many great options around to try. Location is great - we had a private transfer by the Villa to and from the airport and it took about an hour each way, but it was an easy transfer. In terms of when you are at the Villa everything is within walking distance (albeit with a hill or two!). Stroll down to Kata Noi beach, or to the Kata beach strip for restaurants and shops. Kata Rocks, Re Ka Ta, Mama Tri, Boathouse, Red Duck were all in easy walking distance for us. All in all, Impiana Villas makes for an amazing stay if you're coming to Phuket. Very highly recommended - you can't beat having a private infinity pool and view from your Villa like this!!

"The Best View"

Impiana Private Villas is beautifully located between the Kata and Kata Noi Beach. The best part about the property is the amazing view. All villas have an infinity pool and awesome view of the sea and a jaw dropping sunset. Rooms are bigg and beautiful. Breakfast is good as well. Cons - may be the rooms need a little renovation but still I think they are very nice Overall it's a paradise for honeymooners, lots of beautiful places to visit nearby. My wife loved every bit of the stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. 4 1/2 half star for this lovely property. Will love to be back.

"Great resort but room had some maintenance issues"
11/27/15 anne n San Francisco, California
Location: About an hour drive from Phuket airport and 10 min walk to Karon. The resort is off the beaten path which was great as you can easily get away from the hustle and bustle of Karon. Hotel grounds/room: The resort is beautiful and well kept, but the room had some maintenance issues. The shutters in the room were old and worn, and got stuck. Staff had to come in and fix the shutters for us. There was also water leaking from behind the mirror in the bathroom so there was constantly a puddle of water on the countertop. The private pool for our room also needed to be cleaned as there was a foul smell coming from the pool gutter. Other than these issues the room was great - spacious and nicely decorated. Food: The breakfast buffet was delicious and fresh. It is not a traditional buffet rather they give you a menu and the food is made to order. Staff: Friendly and accommodating. Upon arrival we were given fresh juice, apples, and bracelets made of fresh flowers. Overall, would stay again and definitely recommend. Note: Taking a taxi to and from the airport was cheaper than using the resort shuttle.

"Amazing Property!"
11/11/15 pjdan
Stayed here for three nights and the first thing that wowed us was the view. This is a very secluded property. It's quiet, every room has an ocean view and each villa comes with it's own infinity pool. If you can catch the sunset, you will not regret it. The decor is amazing, the rooms are spacious and I can't stress this enough - it's quiet! The service here is impeccable. I'm sure there is a huge staff that maintains the property but you will never know it. I rarely see the staff but everything is alway well kept, rooms cleaned in a timely manner and the front desk is very helpful. Breakfast here has a good mix of western and local. Fresh squeeze juices and local fruit. Delicious! Our room had some damage - the shower didn't work well and there was water damage on ceiling there killed the overall mood a bit. Tub also took forever to fill.

"Don't waste your money"
04/25/15 Anita S Burnaby, Canada
This would be a great place if you expect to spend several hundred US$ on a "5 star" room that is a complete tear down. We stayed in room 302. It looks like it was a very nice room long ago. Now, with seems to be no up keep or maintenance done, the whole place is falling apart. I would challenge anyone to find one thing that doesn't need fixing, besides the awesome air conditioning. The huge picture windows from the bathroom overlooking the ocean is all cracked and dirty. The plaster is falling off the cracked walls. The paint is bubbling off the stained ceiling. The chairs and couch are all stained. I didn't even want to touch them. The porch with the private pool has dirty cracked awning and very rusty railings. Cabinet doors, drawers and front door all are very difficult to open and close. Back door to your own balcony are full of holes and cracks so little critters (geckos) climb in. With luck, you might get the light switches to work sometimes. The bathtub creaked and cracked every time trying to get into it. Even the robes had holes in them. Service was ok. The front desk man was not very welcoming, but the waitresses at the breakfast were really nice. Food was not great. Street food was much better. The plus is that it is a good location. Perfect breathtaking view. Beautiful sunset (as long as you are not inside looking out through the cracked windows.) You can walk to the street market or beach very easily. I would not recommend this place to anyone unless they do a major overhaul and rebuild everything. When we were there, there were two weddings. Beautiful view over the ocean to have a ceremony, but I feel sorry for any honeymoon couple to have to stay at such a rundown place if they expected it to be nice and romantic. We were very disappointed. It definitely has the potential of a 4 or 5 star villa, but at the condition it is in, I would give it a 2 star at the most. I am only rating this so the villa can hopefully read this as constructive criticism and fix everything up and can bring it up to the 5 star potential that it can be. If not, I'm writing this as a warning to any potential guests who might be considering this place.

"Amazing Hotel, Amazing Staff"
04/02/15 scott h Chicago, Illinois
I stayed in the Royal Villa and had an absolutely amazing stay at Impiana Private Villas. While the views are absolutely breathtaking, the best part of the stay was the staff. Despite having only 11 rooms, the restaurant was fantastic! Breakfast was very good, but dinner was amazing. From the Thai dishes to the fish, the food was one of the best parts of the stay. Impossible to beat the view of the sunset from the table on the lawn too! The Royal Villa was great. Plenty of space throughout the Villa. The room and the pool were always clean. Fresh fruit every afternoon was a very nice touch. Every time I had a question or request, the staff was immediately able to help. While some other reviews have pointed out that some upkeep or maintenance was necessary at the resort, I was not able to tell where any was needed, other than maybe refinishing the boards on the deck by the pool. Without hesitation, my stay at Impiana Private Villas was the highlight of my entire stay in Thailand.

"Leaking ceiling"
02/28/15 Kirt K Alexandria, Virginia
My wife and I stayed here for our Honeymoon Feb 15 - Feb 19th. I admit going in my expectations might've been little higher due to the fact that this was suppose to be a 5 star hotel but leaking ceiling?? Come on man! I think that would be detrimental even if I was reviewing a motel. As many reviewer have stated this place is run down. We notice the leaking ceiling the first night we stayed. We informed the staff and they came with a repairman and claimed to have fix the issue. I asked right away if we could change our room and they said that was not possible as all the villas were taken. That seemed plausible to me so I didn't get too upset and my wife and I didn't pursue it any further. The next day the leak was under control but on our 3rd day when we came back to our room there was a repairman fixing our ceiling again. They stated that maids notice the ceiling was leaking again. At this time I asked for another room change. This time they did show us another villa but my wife and I decided not to move because this villas had an obstructed view and it was much smaller than ours. Now I give them credit for trying but I feel as though they could've done more. (i.e. Complimentary transfer to airport, complimentary meal, complimentary bottle of champagne, complimentary massage, anything complimentary...) But all we got was complimentary apologies and I expect bit more from a 5 star hotel. Overall I'm giving this place 3 stars and only reason why I'm even rating it that high is because of the breath taking ocean view. This place is definitely run down. They should take some of the 5 star dollars they've made and renovate the place.
