Mom Tri's Villa Royale
Ranked #2 of 55 Hotels in Kata Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 April 2014

We travel a lot and never return to the same place, however wonderful, because there are so many places to see. But we made an exception for Mom Tri's; we had stayed here when we had one baby and after securing some cheap flights to Phuket decided there was probably no better place even though we now have 2 children.

Stayed in a Beach Suite on upper level (room 14). We had an additional single bed for the kids age 7 and 4 to share, there is more than enough room for this. Fantastic ocean view with a lovely balcony with day bed, great for lounging and for us to sit outside in the evening and enjoy a drink while the kids were asleep. As others have commented, service was great. We started most mornings with a swim at the beach, then pool then breakfast. When we returned, our room had been fully serviced. Food consistently good and so beautiful to have breakfast overlooking (almost overhanging) the ocean.

The resort has been extended since our last stay, however it has been done maintaining the lovely open feel as if it is integrated into the landscape. Even when the resort is full there are so many different spots to relax it never feels crowded. We love the ocean side salt water pool in particular and enjoyed watching the crabs scramble around on the rocks.

Nothing was ever too much trouble for the staff. Even though we arrived at 1.30am we were picked up from the airport, then on arrival at Mom Tri greeted with flowers, cool drink and towels. Then on being taken to the room they had laid out sandwiches and drinks

Great complementary afternoon tea and paper. We had a package direct from the hotel which included breakfast, airport transfers, two dinners and two Thai massage at the spa each. It was excellent value. The restaurant is lovely, we ate Thai mostly and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere.

Lastly even though this would be an awesome romantic retreat, it was great for the kids and they are made to feel very welcome. They loved the choice of pools, the proximity to the beach and exploring the many 'secret paths' around the resort, plus feeding the carp in the pools at reception.

Although we aren't likely to return to Phuket, if we did we would stay here again for sure.

Room Tip: Beach suite on upper level has the best views and close to beach and pools. Plus we love the Thai st...

This is our second time at this hotel, first time was exactly 2 years ago. In simple terms, the first time around I termed this hotel an experience in service of the highest quality and two years on, this consistency has endured and continues to wow us in every way. We stayed once again at the Ocean Wing. Heres a few real examples of their world class service:
- They service your room twice a day
- They deliver a daily unique desert in the afternoon
- They appeared to know whenever you are out and the room is always serviced precisely in the time you are away. Never an intrusion at all
- The staff at Ocean Wing will notice without fail that you are using the pool and promptly deliver a towel and cold water in an iced cup
- In Thailand water from the tap is not drinkable for westerners, so what do the fine lads at Ocean Wing do? They will boil your water in your kettle in your room everyday so you have about 2L of water boiled for any purpose. No joke, we came home one day to notice that water in the kettle had just gone off boil...That is in addition to the free filtered water you get both at room temperature and in the mini fridge
- Want to swim but the pool is being serviced? No worries, the crew will stop work, remove their machinery so that you can swim
- The Ocean Wing crew came out in full on both arrival and departure to greet us and they continued to greet us as if we were people of importance every morning when we saw them
- We are currently staying at the Katathani, not only is it an universe of difference in a bad way in service, attitude and quality of the room. The staff at Mom Tri volunteered to drive us to Katathani in their limo car and the staff member then carried our luggage to handover to Katathani staff before giving us a warm Thai farewell.
- Noticing we arrived after a flight from Australia, the staff at Ocean Wing provided promptly warm toasted cheese and ham sandwiches and iced soy milk
- This is in addition to the many many other extraordinary acts of service which the crew from Mom Tri deliver on a daily basis to each guest.
- Another member of the Ocean Wing staff although clearly changed into casual attire as he was about to head home, assisted us to find fresh towels rather than hand the task over to a colleague

Please note, pretty much all the above were not new to us in that we experienced all of this the first time we visited Mom Tri and this is what impressed us the most, that enduring consistency by the same staff.

These guys go truly above and beyond the call of duty in their daily pursuit of excellence in providing service. I have stayed at fine hotels worldwide and never have I come across such consistency and enduring service. It is also interesting to note that the staff at the Ocean Wing and Mom Tri in general has faced minimal turnover - most are familiar faces from our previous stay. That must say something about this establishment. To the management of Mom Tri - well done and please keep up this good work. Your staff, their professionalism and attitude is an example across Thailand and the broader hospitality industry in my view.

In case management reads this, the exceptional service by the crew at Ocean Wing especially Sae along with reception desk personnel Lynn should not go unnoticed. They are rare professionals across the general hospitality industry.

One last thing, for all the other things that matter to people - great pools, great views, great access to Kata Noi beach, great food in the restaurants and cocktails, clean, modern and well maintained rooms which were unmatched for size even in Thailand. These guys love what they do and they care..trust me on this one.

We had a week at Mom Tri's and loved every minute of it. The beach front room was large with everything in it you could want. It had a great view of the beach and we loved the cake and chocolates that appeared each day. The staff throughout the resort were always smiling and nothing was ever too much for them from the resort car to take you down into Kata if needed, the front desk staff were always helpfull and the staff at the poolside bar were always there to assist. The breakfast was very nice with all you needed and again the staff were wonderfull. Also the view over the beach at breakfast was delightfull. Certainly one of the best resorts we have stayed in and we thoroughly recommend Mom Tri's for a lovely relaxing stay.

Room Tip: The beach rooms are large and very attractive in traditional Thai style. they have a great view over...

My girlfriend is a very picky person so after thousand of research and review she successfully convinced me to booked this place. Wow my gf is always and was right again this time. Amazing room with stunning open view to the beach. Every time wanted to enjoy the fresh ocean air I just opened the huge window to let the coolest winds in. Very romantic and thoughtful and special dinner setup basing on our special request. Staff spoken excellent English and had a great hospitality instinct offered us such an amazing stay. Highly recommended this place to any single German and Dordmundian.

The Villa Royale was recommended to my wife and me by a good friend of ours who stayed there on a few occasions. I cannot thank him enough for such a perfect piece of advice. We just didn't know where to stay when we decided to go to Phuket and it proved to be the one spot we needed for a good rest. It was blissful. The room was large and comfortable, the view stupendous, and the hotel personnel so attentive, cheerful and helpful. The restaurant is without any doubt one of the best Thai restaurants we have eaten in years. All in all it was The perfect spot far from the madding crowd in the rest of the island. The next time we choose this destination, I will not bother to look elsewhere and book there straight away.

We were staying at Akron and wanted a change from the madness. I went scouting for a place to stay. As we walked into the room (top floor family room) we were blown away. Decor, view, ambiance, personal attention, quality. Decision made. The staff were great, the views from everywhere are fantastic, the pools are also great. The kids loved it.
Super chilled out exclusive boutique hotel.
Wireless everywhere, so no dramas with passwords when you move around.
Breakfast was next level! Dinner also fantastic.
Sad to leave. I'm now sitting at huge a 5 star hotel with another 1000 guests in laguna for the last two days of our trip thinking why did we leave mom tris!

Great room (beach suite, upper level), spacey, nicely decorated, massive bed, excellent air con, great view from the balcony, sea directly beyond with view to Kata Noi Beach. Bathroom spacious, separate shower, big bath tube, lots of towels. Excellent housekeeping, no request too small. Loved the freshly made small cakes provided every afternoon as a courtesy.
We arrived very early, without even asking we were provided with an interm room which was a bit smaller than our beach suite but offered all luxury and had an own pool outside on the terrace, was lovely to have a shower and sleep for some hours before moving into our final room.
Staff very nice and helpful across all places in the hotel. Didn't matter that I had forgotten my adapter or my iPad cable was broken, they just had everything at hand.
Fantastic breakfast, lots of fresh fruits, no wish too small!! Delicious, staff very attentive. Snacks at pool bar of high quality, in addition our favourite was the freshly mixed fruit shakes. Mom Tri Kitchen Royale absolutely to be recommended!!! We went many times for dinner. Food is excellent, however if you are a couple make sure they reserve you a table for 2 away from the bigger tables, otherwise you may end up between large Russian parties who just come to dine.
Speedy internet access across the hotel, Cisco wifi router in each room, poolbar, restaurant...perfect.
The gardens and the landscaping are a dream! And constantly being maintained.
Way down to the beach. Public beach (KataNoi), but sun loungers free of charge for hotel guests. There are little stalls at the beach where you can buy beer, soft drinks, freshly cut pineapples, fried rice...whatever! For quite low prices. Staff of these stalls also clean the beach and act as beach wardens, they are very good! Sea was crystal clear, very warm, great for long swims.
About 10 minutes walk into town with the typical shops, hotels, many little restaurants...very convenient.
Over all: we absolutely enjoyed this little gem and will return beginning of next year!

Room Tip: Beach Suites , upper level!
