The longer we stayed the more impressed we became with this hotel and its facilties.
This resort is located centrally to Kata Centre, approximately 5 min (at most) walk downhill to Karon Beach and maybe 10 mins to Kata Beach. Excellent staff and service, good breakfast selection, good facilties and great rooms. Nothing was too much trouble for staff. We were initially uograded to a suite on arrival and at request we got moved to a higher level room with views. The resort allows the use of 2 sister resort facilties - Peach HIll is literally next door (so close feels like same resort) with 3 more pools, and Andanan Cannacia on Kata Hill with great views of Kata beach. The Andanan Cannacia resort and Kata Beach are accessible by courtesy bus every hour. Can also short-cut to Kata Beach through the Peach Hill resort.
From previous reviews I could not understand the "hill". The resort is located up a driveway which is quite steep and approximately 200-300m. When you come down the driveway you are in the middle of the Kata Centre action. Coming down is no problem. A golf buggy runs up and down but it is not consistent or available late at night. The driveway is OK to walk up but sometimes when tired and/or hot you don't feel like it. Once up the top, however, it is very peaceful (and safe during a tsunami warning). My only suggestion to hotel would be to run golf buggy consistently from 6 am to 2 am (but maybe this is a staffing issue).
We are from Australia (with late teen child) and were the only english speaking guests during our stay - most guests were european. Maybe Australians prefer to be right on beach. This was our first trip to Phuket. We live at the beach and like beachfront. Prior to going I would have picked Kata Beach Resort or Karon Beach Resort (both booked out) for the beachfront location but now having been I think these were in very crowded locations and I would not book.
I would definitely recommend this hotel if you don't require beachfront. The rooms are spacious, the facilities good and the service excellent. I would stay again. In the resort it is very tranquil and relaxing but only a 200-300 metre walk down the driveway to the hussle and bussle of town.
