"Luxury family holiday"
Fantastic 5 star hotel with luxury villas and apartments. Perfectly suited to those who enjoy holidaying with their kids without sacrificing on luxury accommodation. Situated away from the madding crowds on Phukets longest beach is this stylish hotel. Just 15 min from the airport. Convenient transfer to all attractions and activities, and the most comfortable […] accommodation. Beautiful setting. Good restaurants. Many well kept amenities. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A romantic get away.."
Everything about our stay was perfect except for one issue. The hotel owns all the stores and shops in the area. The food prices and gift prices are are fixed and VERY high. Example: A hamburger sells for $14.00. Other than feeling ripped off in this area our stay was perfect. The beach is a 10 minute walk from the property and is very private and […] scenic.

Hotel has super potential, however it is still under construction, !!! Construction workers everywhere, dining room not yet built, pool completed on the day we left. Maybe by summer 2013 it will be ready and very high classGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Anantara Vacation Club Phuket Mai Khao Dear Cat Thank you for taking the time to write . Iam glad to advise that all facilities were completed in June and we are now full speed ahead! We look forward to seeing you here again soon. Take care Lyndon
We had a two bedroom poolside apartment but had not expected our own private pool. The apartment was very nicely furnished with two en-suite bathrooms, three TVs with DVD players and a well equipped kitchen with washing machine and drier. The grounds are beautifully laid out and the beach is just ten minutes walk through the complex. There are gift […] shops,coffee shops and a bar across the street and a supermarket five minutes drive away. I would recommend renting a car as it is not near to a town.

"Not sure if I'd stay again"
I stayed in a 2BR pool villa recently. When I booked on this site, I was not aware/informed that the property was in soft launch stage. Construction was half done. Also, correspondence with the hotel staff suggested we'd be having breakfast at JW Mariott as the restaurant is not built yet. However, the counter staff vehemently denies this despite email […] proof and was arguing with me over semantics. Breakfast was served at Bill Bentley, which is rather horrid if this was truly a 5 star property. Despite being new, light fixtures were not working. The side table was broken. In all, don't stay here until they've sorted themselves out. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Anantara Vacation Club Phuket Mai Khao Dear Alvin Thank you for your comments and I am glad to announce that Anantara Vacation Club is now 100% complete including our restaurant 'Chaam'. Our wood-fired pizza sala 'Crust' is also operational so now there is not need to utilise our neighbours for a dining venue. I do hope you choose to stay with us again as I look forward to offering you an unforgettable dining experience. Thank you Lyndon Ellis General Manager
"High-end location.....remote spot away from crowds"
Anantara offered a very high end stay in Thalang which is about the only quite beach in Phuket. The facilities are top notch, especially with access to the Anantara hotel directly across the street which offered many restaurants and a fabulous beachside pool and patio. It is very remote here though which we found a blessing compared to the rest of Thailand […] which is very busy and very crowded. The Marriot next door also offers many services as well. The only caution we make is that the complex is still under construction so at times it was a bit noisy, but given the beach and pools you won't hardly be in your room anyways.

"Fantastisk dejligt sted."
Stedet overgår beskrivelsen på hjemmesiden. Der er noget for alle aldersgrupper og perfekt til familier med større børn. Vi havde 2 drenge med på 14 og 16 år, og de kedede sig ikke. Meget afslappende og roligt hotel, uden at være kedeligt. Lækker pool, god strand og fantastisk mad. Kæmpe ros til hotel personalet, som var meget servicemindede. Især […] tak til pool bartenderen Nice, som var behjælpelig med diverse anbefalinger af udflugter og oplevelser i området. (ATV, elefant ridning, bådtur o.s.v.) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel, great family vacation place"
06/30/14 AlanSee Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Our 4D/3N family stay there was wonderful, nice room, great pool and awesome design though Mai Khao beach is quite far from Patong Beach. Room is equipped with all the needy for family dining and cooking which we really enjoyed a lot.
"A relaxing holiday"
06/19/14 Sahib A Bangkok, Thailand
Phuket being one of the famous destinations got us a little confused to which hotel we should head down for a family vacation. Finally chose Anantara Vacation Club and it was indeed the right choice made. We arrived at the hotel at noon but weren't allowed to check in till 3 which was fine by us. Opposite the hotel was a small complex- turtle village, which had a few restaurants to offer. So we went to grab some lunch while waiting for Our rooms. Once we checked in the rooms were spacious and well done. The master bedroom was huge and fully equipped. The pool was clean and inviting as well. We did encounter a few insects the next morning in the toilet but which was compensated with a late check out. Can't complain. The breakfast overall was alright. Not too many options for vegetarians though. Overall the stay was great and we had a good time in Phuket.
"good accommodation & service but ......"

My family had a good stay in the vacation club, which is situated next to the villa. We stayed at the 2 bedroom suite. However, the balcony was facing the construction site (they are extending the property here) and hence we didn't using the balcony much. The services, environment, breakfast is good for us... and my daughter love the swimming pool so much. There are kid center where they can play around in it having someone to take care of them (it must be >4 yrs old if to leave the kid there), bicycle to use to travel around and buggy always there if u need their services. the only thing is the location is far from town, where you need to travel for about an hour to reach Patong beach, weekend market or to watch Fantasea show. For the cab available, it is quite expensive due to the distance and always it is fixed price. others than that, I love the stay here.
"Worn and tired looking apartments"
06/13/14 mikelim45 Singapore, Singapore
Was here in March at the 1 bed room pool villa with my wife and had an excellent time. This time round, returned with family. Due to last minute room changes unable to get a 2 bed room pool villa and only managed to get the 2 bed room pool apartment for 3 nights and 2 bed room apartment without pool for 2 nights.. Reached the hotel early at 9 am.. Was told that room could be available at 12 pm, then moved to 1 pm and then 3 pm..5 other families that came with us already got their rooms in marriott vacation club by 1 pm.. Feeling embarrassed since I am owner of AVC and yet I treated in this way. When we stepped into the pool apartment, we were shocked how tired and worn the apartment looked like, in view that this property is only less than a year old. My wife commented whether the furnitures and rugs are old furniture and rugs they used in the anantara hotel next door.. Already feeling upset that the anantara hotel was taken away from the list that avc owners can use our points for, this was really rubbing salt to my wound.. Throughout the trip with the other 5 families, we spent our time at the MVC pools and joined their activities..The apartments at MVC, at least 3-5 years old, looked so much newer and better designed, so did not want to embarrassed myself more by inviting them to view our rooms. When we moved to the 2 bed room apartment without pool, it looked as worn out. Apart from the room, the service and staff ( except the one handling my check in) are relatively good. I doubt I would recommend any friends for a preview at this property again. The AVC management should really put the anantara hotel back to the list for avc owner at least till this property is ready to carry the anantara brand.
"Excellent accommodation and service"
06/04/14 Dylan C Pattaya, Thailand
Having already stayed at both Anantara Layan and their Anantara Phuket Villa properties, my wife and I decided to try Anantara's Vacation club property in Phuket also located on Mai Khao beach. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with a plunge pool. I have to say, the room quality was super impressive. The rooms are large, spacious, modern, luxurious and have all the facilities required. The small touches from their room maids were thoughtful and helped to make our stay feel very personalized. The main swimming pool was a highlight and the pool staff were attentive. The restaurant was equally as good. We found the service and food quality to be excellent. A big thanks for Lyndon the General Manager and his staff for personally making sure our stay was memorable! I can highly recommend to stay at the Vacation Club in Phuket.

We stayed at the Anantara Vacation Club in 2 bedroom unit for 3 nights. The resort is absolutely beautiful and the staff super friendly and courteous. We were very well looked after and our daughter was doted over. The staff all seemed to remember her name which we loved. The resort is quite remote so we felt that 3 days was enough. If we were there without her I imagine we could have relaxed a lot more and made more of the isolation. The beach isn't great but the pool and pool bar made up for that. There is a small shopping village over the road which was handy for supplies and killing some time during the rainy periods. I would recommend this resort for longer stays as a couple but just a few days for families unless you plan to do lots of day tours.
"Very satisfactory stay"

My wife and I stayed here in the Pool Villa for 3D2N. Excellent stay, very good food especially the lamb rack, which is the best I have ever tasted! Should have brought my daughter here as it is very child friendly! Definitely worth the money! Will come back again! Thanks.

Had a wonderful stay at Anantara Vacation Club @ Mai Khao, Phuket over the weekend. It is a wonderful places for family as well as just couple. I was there with my spouse and we love everything in the apartment. Since we were there for our 15 anniversary, the Anantara team located us on the highest floor, the far in unit, for greatest privacy. The apartment comes with everything family or couple would need. One can practically move in here without any luggage, as it comes with bathrobe, washing machine, dryer, full kitchen utensils etc. If we do not feel like eating out, can always head over to Turtle Mart (5 minutes walking distant) to get the ingredients. Overall experience has been perfect, from the check in to check out, of course in between asking for more drinking water, everything fulfilled. We had a minor accident while we were out, which required medical attention, I contacted the Anantara team, they recommended nearby hospital. Although have been to Mai Khao twice now, we will definitely come again. Perhaps, the next round, we will try the Anantara Villa :)

This hotel is perfect for you if you prefer somewhere private and quiet. We had the room in 6th floor. The room was speechless for two people, was very big and convenient. You have kitchen, laundry, dining and living areas separated from bedroom with Pool view. It just perfect suite for your short and long stay. The service was also excellent staffs were very polite and helpful. Worry about buying foods and shopping? Don't worried, you also have ''Turtle village'' where you can buy foods, dining at restaurants, and do some shopping. It is just opposite to the hotel. Breakfast was also meet my expectation. They have many varieties of foods including Continental, American, Thai and some Sushi and taste is good tho. We had a fantastic stayed here.

We went to AVC in Phuket last week as part of their drive to sell Vacation Club memberships. We left with mixed feelings as follows. The good: The place is new, modern and the apartment we stayed at was very pleasant and spacious. The swimming pool area is very nice and the pool warm even after rain, which is good for us as we spend hours there with our 2 year old. Only one restaurant, but the menu is extensive. We understand you can use the restaurant at the Anantara hotel next door, but we didn't. Breakfast is good. The no so good: We were left at arrivals for 15 minutes as the hotel representative was not there when we arrived, even though the hotel had our flight details. The lady who finally showed up only had a non sincere sorry for us. We go to Phuket 3 or 4 times a year and this is the first time the pick up is late. Some of the staff at the restaurant did not speak English well and there were confusion with some of our orders. We found a very large cockroach in our room. Scary when you are with small kids. We also found a sunflower seed in the body lotion. Some of these might sound silly, but this resorts sells itself as a 5 star resort, and these things should not happen. During the vacation club presentation we had to go through 3 layers of sales, as if our first response of "this is not for us" was not enough for them to try to sell us smaller and smaller packages with the excuse of some manager having to make sure the original sales person had done her job. This was tiring. All in all, the place is pleasant, but the experience could have been better. Good place for families with small kids, if I put the cockroach incident aside, but would be boring for young couples with no kids.
