I am planing to spend my honeymoon in Phuket however I am confused between to hotels:
1- Banyan Tree (Spa Pool Villa)
2- Malissa Villas (Grand Pool Villa)
I checked the pictures both looks nice. I was checking the reviews here in trip advisor both hotels have pros and cons. some people said Malissa wins and some said Banyan Tree. I am really confused.
What I like in Banyan its decoration, spacious, Sunken Spa Bath with flower petals, close to beach. what I dislike: Price double than Malissa (However I don't mind if it worth!), I read that it is far from every thing!!, also i read that the rooms looks very old (but does this apply for the Spa Pool Villa as well?)!!
What I Like in Malissa, its price is average, I believe its close to every thing, it is newer than Banyan. what I dislike is that they said Malissa is not anymore private after the construction that is next to it, It is quite small, no direct access to beach and the beach that is next to it is not nice and not clean, also some said that the area of the Malissa is very bad and dirty!
Please help I am confused I want to go to Banyan Tree but I don't want to be in a very old villa and I don't want to be in middle of no where or every thing is far from the hotel (city, Patong, etc..)
Also I want to go to Malissa but I don't want to have a bad honeymoon and have no privacy most importantly is the beach!
Thank you for your advice I really appreciate it.
