We recently spent 8 nights here. This resort has to be the best we have stayed in. The room (495) was spacious and well equipped. The facilities at the resort are amazing. The pools and beach are wonderful.
The staff are well trained and are very obliging. We asked for fresh mango one day at breakfast, the following day, without asking fresh mango appeared to our table.
The transport to and from wherever you want to go, is reasonably priced and always available.
We could not fault this resort.

Room Tip: Rooms at end of each floor are the quietest as there is no one above you

I am now back in Mumbai. after spending 8 nights at Le Meridian and I am already planning a return trip. The hotel, staff, food e.t.c were all very good. The 'private' beach is good to enjoy a walk along, clean and beautiful. Both the beach and the pool are good places to relax and swim. We did have the occasional rain storm but that did not cause any problems, and the weather was better than expected. We did some Scuba diving with Sea Fun divers at Le Meridien who gave us a lovely day out and we saw many, many fish.

Upgraded for a very reasonable fee to a junior suite with sea-view. A great room with very comfortable large king size bed. Sofa/bed was not the most comfortable for our 10 year old, so a couple of nights with us helped to resolve that.
Free Wifi included with the upgrade. Free daily bottled water and fresh plate of fruits, small bar fridge.
Buffet style breakfast with a fantastic wide choice of everything you could possibly think of. Excellent breakfast hams, pancakes, fresh juices, fruit, breads, pastries etc... ext...
Private beach area, clean and raked daily with comfortable sun beds and sunshade umbrellas. Great towel facility for pool and beach towels. Poolside bar and snack service. Separate restaurants for breakfast and lunches, Italian restaurant and separate buffet style restaurant with a themed daily evening dinner menu.
Large complex with lots of pool areas. Shops, gym, spa, medical centre, children's club for younger kids, DVD's available from reception (free).
All in all a great complex, however a little disappointing to be charged for the hotel transport to nearby Patong & Karon (5 mins).
We had a group of 5 to travel daily, so needed a mini bus from resort to local areas and used Tuk Tuk to return in the evening.
A nice touch for my husbands birthday, totally unexpected a small cake and card from hotel staff was placed in our room :)

Room Tip: The upgrade for the junior suite was good value with free Wifi. However the balcony had no cover to...

If you are looking for a fantastic resort that's right on the beach , offers excellent food, big size rooms , great service, an with a view of either the massive pool/ garden view / or the sea beyond , then this is a sure recommend!
Slightly far from the main Phuket market/ activity centres but the hotel has it's own transportation every 2 hours to take you to an back to the main centre. Food options are excellent an great taste as well.Note: like mostly all over in Thailand, pure veg folks may find slight difficulty in food , however special request s on food are entertained. Overall- excellent and must stay!

We paid USD 190/room for my family of 4 including taxes, extra bed and breakfast for all.

Why you should go here -

a) principally for the private sandy wonderful beach of the Le Meridien (that is if you don't want to be on a public beach with hundreds of other people and being bothered by touts, vendors and have loud noises of the city)
b) proximity to Patong city (5 mins away) - if you want to get out for a meal in the city and not in the resort all the time

Other Pros
a) A 5 star well laid out property and resort with 3 - 4 large swimming pools (accessible to all residents)
b) 4 -5 dining options including wood fire oven pizzas, japanese, thai, italian specialty restaurants
c) A library and sitting place (an oasis of further calm in an oasis of calm)

For me the resort had a feel of a resort in Mauritius - really nice.

Notable mention - Chef Dinesh who would come on his own to see how he could whip some comfort food for my children which could be off the menu but happily done by him. This kind of sincere service was highly appreciated and made us feel very welcome.

Cons
a) The rooms gave me a mixed feel in terms of decor but could be a personal opinion.
b) The food was very expensive as compared to even fine dining restaurants in the city (at least 20 - 30% more expensive)

Offers
a) At the spa - treatments at 30% discount
b) At buffets - kids under 12 eat free with every paying adult

My family had a great time and we were all in agreement that we would be happy to come back again to the resort with or without more family for a break.

Room Tip: Garden facing rooms are charming to sit in the shaded balcony in the morning and sip tea and they al...

Best honeymoon. The only bad thing a can say about this place is that it is too perfect. It has the perfect lunch boufet right on the huge pool. It has the perfect private beach. It is very close to Bangladesh road (5 min with tuk tuk) . Best quality of food. Best smiles every morning from the staff.... In other words... Best of everything...

Room Tip: Get anything but a mounted view room . Not that it is not good but the other ones r better.
