"Great Hotel near Phuket airport"
Overnight stay before our flight to Bangkok. This hotel is 10km (6 miles) from the airport and offers a car to the airport for $15 US. The grounds are beautiful and the restaurant has a large selection of excellent food. The room was well decorated and well laid out with a large closet and a very comfortable bed. We enjoyed our 1 night stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A true paradise for sports fanatics"
The tag line of Thanyapura is "train in Paradise" so as a sports fanatic I was coming to thanyapura with high expectations. The experience we had over there was absolutely fantastic. Thanyapura is like a hidden paradise for sports fanatic. It offers world-class sports facilities and you feel inspired training amongst professional athletes but you can […] also enjoy the very peaceful environment of the place. My girlfriend is not Sport mad like me but still, she didn't want to leave neither. Besides the wow sport factor, the services was great, the food at Divine restaurant was amazing and the Sport Hotel was very enjoyable. Also, the place was not packed so we really felt like being in a world-class exclusive country club. Prices are higher than the typical Thai resort however it's totally reasonable for the level of experience you will get. We can't wait to go back there and hopefully for longer this time...

"I want to go back"
Amazing place to stay if you want to escape the craziness of Patong and the tourist beaches. The food is delicious and the staff exceptional. The sports facilities are superb too. We even got to see the Dutch national swimming team train. Thoroughly recommended!Genuine Expedia guest review

Menyenangkan.tapi wifi nya sekarang jangkauannya kurang,6bln yll dimana2 discover wifi. Dari segi Harga mahalGenuine Hotels.com guest review
2013年女２人で正月に利用させていただきました。 このホテルを選んだ理由は運動がしたかったので施設がたくさんあることに魅力を感じました。 実際、朝はテニスをしたり、プールで泳いでみたりととても充実した時間を過ごせました。プールなんですが深さが3メートルあったりとなかなか本格的で外部から人が来て泳いでいました。日本人には会いませんでした。中国人は結構いたんですがほとんど欧米人でした。家族連れが多く友達同士だと少し浮いていました。朝ごはんつきで欧米人に合わせてだと思いますが洋食が多い印象。1日だけディナーをホテルのレストランでとりましたがタイ料理が少ないです。辛いタイらしい料理が食べたかったんですが残念。チキンカレーはほぼチキンでカレーはソース程度しかかかってなくイメージと違いました。 街へ行 […] くのは大変でホテルでタクシーを頼んでもらうしかない。物価は安いんですがタクシー代が高い。 タクシーによりますが、パトンまでは片道1000バーツくらい。約3000円くらいです。時間は50分くらいです。 20分くらいのスーパーに行くのも往復600バーツとか。日用品は安いんですがタクシー代が高いですね、、 Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Australian Institute of Sport type facilities - for all"
03/29/15 Ian M Perth
My wife and I just spent four (brief) days at Thanyapura to see if it was as good in reality as it looked in a magazine article and on its website. Thanyapura certainly delivered this - and more. A unique place with modern, good rooms; excellent healthy food menu and smoothies; three swimming pools (50m & 2x 25m); numerous gyms (strength, cardio, spinning, yoga, martial arts, etc); tennis, athletics; basketball; running and cycling options (40m to 150km). This together with mind & meditation facilities. The staff are really friendly and go out their way to deliver what you are seeking. Bike hire is available (request in advance). I indulged in the triathlon related training while my wife indulged in the gym classes, yoga and mind/meditation. The cycle sessions cater for the young & fit, and the old & slow. In conclusion - Thanyapura exceeded our expectations and we will definitely return for a longer holiday/training camp. Thanks to the management & all the staff - a great effort.
"Exceptional Facilities, Brilliant Staff, Great Food, Lovely Hotel"

Writing this at Phuket airport, my wife and I have just had a wonderful 8 days at Thanyapura. We have improved our health through utilisation of the personal trainers, improved our tennis and refreshed our swimming abilities. The resort staff are extremely helpful and the professional staff are sincerely dedicated to ensure you feel comfortable with whatever sport you are performing. The catering was exceptional with a varied menu interspersed with themed buffets which were delicious. The hotel is modern, clean and relaxing. The publicity that goes with this complex is completely genuine. We will definitely be back, no question.
"Best kept secret for fitness enthusiasts."
03/23/15 Bergamotty Perth, Australia
I have recently experienced 3 wonderful days at Thanyapura. I always wished that I could be locked up in the "Biggest Loser House" with access to outstanding sports facilities, a great selection of fitness classes and enthusiastic trainers. The quality of accommodation, service and food is excellent and supplements the fitness lifestyle. I will definitely head back there for tennis training and perhaps even participate in beginners swimming coaching to unlock the hidden mermaid within!
"The PERFECT place to train!"
I stayed at Thanyapura recently I was recommended it by a friend that had stayed a few weeks previously. I was a female traveling solo so wanted somewhere that I would feel safe and had all facilities in one place. The facilities are the best I have experienced in any hotel for fitness. I took part in various classes the Muay Thai boxing with Chai and Yoga with Lek were my favourite. The instructors are all of an excellent standard and make it fun at the same time! I also used the running track in a morning which is to a very high standard. There are two separate gyms one for strength training and one for cardio and there is every piece of state of the art equipment you will need and a great layout. I had a couple of treatments at the spa which were very nice and again the staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is the perfect place for any health conscious traveller, I liked that the menu states the calories/protein/carbs etc and you have the choice of eating as healthy (or not so) as you like! I was doing a ten day raw detox and found this very easy with the wide range of healthy foods. The staff were also happy to adapt my meal slightly if need be. I recommend the freshly grown wheatgrass! The rooms and pool area are separate from the gym and sports facilities which was nice as you felt like you could get away and relax after a hard mornings training. The pool was quiet and peaceful with a nice swim up bar that served the best fruit/veg juices and smoothies! The rooms were of a great standard for a sports hotel, i stayed in a deluxe pool room. It had everything you need, a nice rain shower, large double bed and plenty of storage for clothes and a bike rack! I could not fault this hotel from the staff, accommodation, restaurant to the sports facilities it was perfect for me and I will certainly be returning in the near future and have already recommended to like minded friends.
"Amazing facilities, staff and food"
03/16/15 Emma C
My sister and I stayed at the hotel for a week in March. We wanted to be able to exercise when we wanted, eat well and be able to relax by the pool. Thanyapura exceeded our expectations in every way - firstly the staff were so acommodating and friendly. We changed our mind virtually everyday with regards to the exercise classes or treatments we wanted to book into and the staff were more than happy to arrange this for us. There was a really diverse range of classes which made the exercise intersting and fun. The food was incredible, with the choice of a western or asian menu and we were really impressed by the sports facilities and the qualityof the instructors. The pool area at the hotel was also really relaxing with soothing music being played and healthy smoothies on tap. I couldn't recommend this place more as a healthy retreat that feels really high-end!
"Easing pain in my knees"
03/16/15 MarkdHughes Bangkok, Thailand
I knew of Thanyapura before but only previously used it for a couple of swimming lessons, meditation and some gym work, all of which proved to be highly beneficial, especially in improving my swimming technique. This last time I went because I had been told of a treatment the clinical team practised there that would void the need for me to undergo knee replacement surgery. This they successfully accomplished with at the heart of it an injection in each knee. The pain disappeared almost immediately. However, this was not all. The staff there practise a holistic approach. I was de-toxed daily with five delicious juice cocktails, a vitamin-loaded drip plus amino acids, various other detoxing techniques at the cutting edge of medical science and a special diet to help me lose weight and therefore put less stress on my recovering knees. I was only there for five days but it was enough to set me on a new course of creating my own detoxing juices, eating more healthily and exercising. At the same time I was extremely grateful for the warm care and expertise of the staff who produced a full report on the state of my body and gave me a thorough road path to avoid future health concerns. They caught me just before I was likely to develop gout and diabetes, for which I am eternally grateful. Somehow it manages to be an incredibly relaxing place while at the same time pushing you towards a healthier lifestyle in a warm and encouraging way. But it's not just creaking people like me who benefit. The facilities are premiere class and globally famous faces from the world of athletics are frequent visitors. So whatever your needs, this place in my view cannot be bettered. It's also close to the airport and the wonderful seas and beaches and islands around Phuket.
"Excellent resort for fitness and relaxation"
03/16/15 Phillippa C London, United Kingdom
The facilities and staff at this hotel are fantastic. There was a great range of optional classes including: yoga, pilates, aero kick, boot-camp, muay thai, cardio tennis and general aerobics style classes and with so much variety it keeps fitness fun. The 2 gyms, running track, tennis courts and swimming pools are really impressive. The staff are so pleasant and flexible at both the fitness centre, the spa, the restaurant and the hotel. The massages were of a great standard. The hotel accommodation was of a good standard and has a separate pool away from the core fitness areas. My stay was relaxing, whilst active and I would strongly recommend this hotel if fitness and relaxation are the aims.
"Great Adult 'Tennis Camp'"
03/13/15 wilsonwilson2015 Adelaide, Australia
I am not one to usually be bothered to write reviews but I had such a wonderful holiday with Thanyapura I feel I owe them. You just book your stay, they will pick you up from the Airport, everything I needed was on site - I am someone who gets bored very easily and there is so much to do that that was not an issue. I did the week long tennis package and it exceeded expectations. As someone who has started to play tennis relatively late in life and who is a relative beginner, I was a bit apprehensive that I was going to be just too useless for their programme - I can reassure anyone in the same boat to not have any concerns about this. They cater for all abilities and there were many people who had obviously just started to play tennis as well as seasoned players. The coaches were really friendly, helpful and enthusiastic - I am even more of a tennis addict now. As part of the package you can go to any of the other sessions Thanyapura run and I only scratched the surface there as after three hours of tennis about the only thing I had any energy left for was some meditation. All food was included and I ate very well. The Sports Hotel had everything I needed, the pool at the Hotel was great and pretty much every time I used it (everyday) I was the only one in it. I quickly learned to just ask the staff for anything and they were really helpful - make sure you book any classes you wish to do with the activities desk. For my fitness level I went as hard as I could for seven days and I am delighted to have returned home without an injury - I do believe the session I had with the Personal Trainer on my first day where we went over in detail all the stretches one should do helped immensely. The included massages were also proper deep tissue sports massages and no doubt prevented injury also. As a solo female traveller I felt very safe. I am now trying to work out when I can return.....

It was really an amazing stay at this hotel, they have really amazing activities to do (well, obviously, they are a sports hotel). I went there as a class trip, and I wouldn't recommend the lower level rooms, because there is a danger of creepy crawlies coming into the rooms. They have amazing lounge are outside (near the main lobby). Breakfast wasn't that good either, but it's a nice hotel overall. It's a really nice property for morning walks. Try learning Muay Thai boxing if you are there. It's a great place if you want to hold a 3 day wedding/anniversary/birthday party, and it will all be well under your budget.

I stayed at Thanyapura for a week on a meditation retreat. The facilities were great and the staff across the complex couldn't be more friendly and always helpful. As part of our retreat we could use the gym facilities but the spa was extra. We also had as part of our package the buffet (breakfast, lunch and dinner) in the Divine restaurant which catered for all tastes and was very good everyday. We stayed in the garden wing, which was a short walk from the hotel reception and in a slightly quieter part of the complex, the rooms were a great size and are all on the ground floor so you have a small patio with table and chairs to sit out on. I would say that the majority of people who stay at Thanyapura come to use the sports facilities. There is both a full size olympic pool as well as half size which were being used constantly while we were there by about 3 different swimming teams, There are also indoor and outdoor tennis courts as well as an athletic ground. If you are looking to focus on training this is the hotel for you. I would suggest you look at other areas of Phuket if you are trying to get a feel for Thailand or it's culture or you are looking for a beach holiday, although you can get to the beach from here but it's about a 15 minute taxi ride.
