My wife and I stayed at the Serene Resort at the end of our 6 week holiday through Thailand, Cambodia and Viet Nam.
We booked the hotel using www.wotif.com, and got our room for about 1500 bht per night, which for the time of year (late November) was pretty reasonable.
The room was spacious enough, with a great view out over the pools to the ocean.
The room had all you need, with air-con, cable TV, safe and mini bar.
The pools at this hotel are very nice, with the lower one being more suited to family swimming with the kids, and the upper being more for adults (deeper, quieter, nicer).
The hotel is nicely located a couple mins walk from Kata beach, and all the local bars and restaurants.
The breakfast was very nice, with a good selection which changed slightly from day to day.
The breakfast restaurant has a nice outlook over the pools and garden area as well.
The staff were all very helpful and friendly.
One suggestion to all that say that the staff were rude or unhelpful... Generally we found in Thailand (as in Cambodia and Viet Nam), most locals/staff treat you the same way you treat them.
Respect them and be friendly and you will find that that they respect you and are friendly back.
(Loosing your temper is often seen as a sign of weakness).
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for good value accommodation in an absolutely stunning location.
I look forward to staying at the Serene Resort again when we come back to Phuket!
