The Indigo Pearl is not to be missed!! What an amazing place! The staff is super friendly and helpful, the facilities are wonderful and the food was delicious! A couple of things not to be missed! Adult pool #2 with the swim up bar. We met the sweet bartender Nong on our first day and we kept going back. She makes wonderful drinks and will help you with whatever you need!! We just loved her! They have HH in the afternoon!;) Also, check out Black Ginger for dinner if you can or just go get a drink at night so you can see the restaurant!! It is a bit pricey but
The ambiance and experience make it all! My husband and I took the time to tour the facility on our own one morning and I would recommend that as well. Really cool architecture! We had amazing time and can't wait to return to Indigo Pearl!!

While our stay here was only brief (1 night) it was still amazing! Checking in was fast and easy, and they allowed us a late checkout the next day which we were very pleased about. Our room was beautiful to say the least, the bathroom was gorgeous! The bed was very, very comfortable which was so nice after being on a 8 hour flight.

The next morning my partner and I got up early and headed to the breakfast buffet which was abundant with fresh food and lots of variety, so we were both extremely pleased with this as well.

The gym which was well air conditioned and well equipped which was nice to see, and the pool was picturesque.

Checking out was again quick and easy, and added to the pleasantness of our stay.
If we ever visit Phuket again we'll be sure to stay here!

This was our 3rd time in Thaïlande and we were a little fed up but we finally found our "pearl"... You might think I'm paid off by Indigo Pearl :-), but actually we have nothing bad to say about this resort. Its' perfect!
Fantastic design, so nice staff, so much space, nice swimmingpools, very good breakfast, very good housekeeping and it's smells sooo nice :-)
We also like the surroundings, Nai Yang, less touristy than Kata, Karon etc. More relax.
We can recommend this resort 100%!
Indigo Pearl, we will be back sooner or later....

We rested at the hotel from 23 to 26 July, especially come to Indigo to swim in the sea, as now in Phuket are not many beaches where the calm sea, and you can swim. More, I do not really, really liked it, and unusual design and plush comfortable rooms, excellent food, cosmetics production of indigo is something excellent service from the meeting and continuing around the perimeter of the hotel! The hotel decor is unique, pleasant smell with the scent of aroma lamps champuka, lively composition of flowers and unique style! I highly recommend to those who like something unusual and unique and chic spa and delicious cuisine. Special thanks I would like to thank all the employees of the hotel who helped to solve my problem. Yesterday, after leaving the hotel, I forgot in the room box with jewelry very dear to me, since I'm on vacation, and now live in another hotel in Phuket, no box found just today, contacted the hotel and after a couple minutes of searching, I was told that my box Found! I was happy, I cried with joy! thank you very much for the honesty of the hotel workers and care! I very much ask the general manager of the hotel to see the good work and thank the girl who cleaned our room and found a box, we lived in the room 3220, when I picked up my box, I unfortunately was not able to do it in person! Once again many thanks to you for a memorable stay and for the excellent work of the entire management of the hotel! Thank you so much!

This was my second visit and it was as good as the first. I love it because it is so unusual and hip. The idea of drawing on the tin mining history of the area and incorporating aspects into the architectural design of the resort is brilliant. as is the contemporary design of the gardens which feature the recently discovered Bismark palm. The staff are the friendliest I have ever met and the food is first rate. Away from the hustle of Patong the Pearl sits on the edge of Nai Yang Beach where there are many restaurants.

Room Tip: If you are returning mention it when booking as we had a free upgrade.

Would I recommend this hotel? 100%

Would I go again? Absolutely. Already looking to book for Christmas!!!

This hotel is the perfect hotel for families that want it all. A beautiful location, amazing, luxe resort and child friendly services. The staff can not do enough for you and are wonderful with the children. Friendly, informative and fun! Our children were treated equally to us and made to feel very special. The kids club is an added bonus. Our two children kept asking to go back which is testament to how comfortable they felt there and the amount of fun activities that were available. The hair braiding was a huge hit and they enjoyed the yoga.

There are three pools with the child friendly pool being the largest near the restaurant. Pool toys are supplied which were a nice touch and it wasn't hugely deep so perfect for younger kids. The only thing that could improve this area are the sun loungers. In this area only it would be good to have loungers in which you can sit upright. My children can swim but I'd like to sit pool side to watch them at all times. Currently the loungers can only be brought up minimally and quite uncomfortable if you want to lounge and view the pool at the same time.

We'd read reviews the food wasn't that great. I can say the Breakfast is brilliant. Huge choice, fresh and lovely. We ate at Black Ginger (don't miss out going here) and the Tin Mine. The western food was average but I really enjoyed the Thai food.

At the Coqoon Spa I was made to feel like a Queen. Alek has magical fingers and gave the most brilliant massage. Since partaking in baby massage our children like to have massages, especially our 6 year old who suffers from growing pains. The staff accommodated our needs and our children had a gentle massage and they were treated respectfully and gently.

There is so much this hotel can offer you. 5 days weren't enough and I feel it and the location has so much more to offer. I'm desperate to go back.
