We enjoyed ourselves so much in this resort which has a wonderful atmosphere. Hotel staff is friendly, accomodating and we felt very much at home. There is superb service , beautiful decor ,great spa,nice pool and pretty good food. The room is a bit small, but it is clean and comfortable .We definitely return again.

My husband and I had a relaxing time there. We stayed there for two nights and being in the surrounding is like you are transported to a tropical paradise away from the hustle and bustle of Patong. Perhaps piped in music will complete the picture.... The staff are well versed in English and are very helpful and pleasant.

Breakfast buffet is limited but sufficient. This actually allowed us to go out and try other foods for lunch as otherwise we would be too full till dinner!

The room and the bed is big but the only drawback is there are no drawers to sort clothes. The bed and pillows are so comfortable. However the only thing I didn't like is the design of the bed. The protruding wood beside the bed (am guessing to rest the feet) doesn't allow you to swing your feet out of the bed easily. So beware if you are in a hurry in the darkness as you also have to wrestle with the mosquito netting! There is a flatscreen TV with free WIFI and movies you can select to watch (like a DVD). The other drawback is the small bathroom.

The pool is small but clean and you have to swim carefully as otherwise you may knock your head on the pool bar stool. So.. no lap swimmers.

All in all I would recommend this hotel for a couple who want a romantic and quiet evening together away from the crowd.

This is a beautiful resort & the staff are wonderful. It is a 10min walk to Kata Beach but they offer a free shuttle on the hour if you don't want to walk. We were disappointed that we were asked to leave the pool one night at 8pm - we didn't realise it closed at 7pm which is a shame. The breakfast was fantastic but the same restaurant made a mess of our romantic spa dinner package but they were very polite & apologetic but no one offered us anything for this disappointment other than the bill. That said we would definitely stay again but on the condition we can have a swim til at least 9pm at night.

I really enjoyed my stay there. Loved having morning coffee on my porch surrounded by tropical plants. Bathroom was a good size. Breakfast was plentiful; dinner was excellent - but before ordering the steak, ask where it is from - might not be western beef which is not so great. Fish was excellent. Plenty of room for me, but my be tight for two - closets small. The TV has large screen and computer built in for room email or computer work. Staff was courteous and friendly. 10 minute walk to beach or hotel will provide ride. If you like an hour walk, you can walk all through Kata town and look around.

This walled hotel in thai/indian village style makes you forget all about the touristy bustle of busy phuket. Stunning interior, beautiful gardens and detailing, great restaurant, comfortable rooms (and if the bed's too hard or you're missing something the reception will provide it for you) very friendly, attentive staff. One room is nicer than the other; we stayed in 2 different garden bungalows and one had a better location but the other one was much newer and prettier. The Baray Spa is, although relatively expensive, definitely worth a visit. Amazing interior decoration and fantastic treatments for which you can get some sort of discount through hotel vouchers or at spa reservation desk. There is no doubt that we will stay in this hotel the next time we are in Phuket.
