We stayed at Club Med Phuket for 7 days and was Awesome , the staff were so helpful and friendly. They made our stay so awesome , the entertainment facilities were great with so much to do like the 9 hole golf course, squash , badminton , archery , snorkeling ,trapeze ect . My girlfriend and I enjoyed every moment of this Club Med Experience and would most definitely do it again -value for money.
I think the only issue we had was the fact that getting into the toilet was a bit of a mission -a tight squeeze to get in and close the door behind you !

Neverless we met some great people who really made our stay at Club Med that much better ! So a great thanks to Stefanie , Lisa, Anna, Mai ,and Mckenzie! You guys rock ! Thanks to the golf and snorkling intrustors you were all super fun and really made us laugh -was great!

What a brilliant place! Such a lovely way to kick start our holiday in Phuket !!

The "Club Med" experience truly is different from the rest and in a class of its own. This was our first Club Med trip so we didn't know what to expect, but we had high expectations. The result: everything was right, from the welcome, to the atmosphere, to the location and views (there was a public beach right across from the resort), and most importantly, to the staff - the GOs. They make Club Med what it is. They are friendly, genuine and go out of their ways to make your stay enjoyable. Special thanks to Abu from the bar, Zai from archery, Singh from sports, Jaya from guest services, the GO from golf (can't remember his name), and so many more...you guys made our stay so memorable and great!

As for food, there was a lot of variety in the buffet restaurant. The food quality isn't top notch, but still good and lots to choose from. Special thanks to Mahen for going out of his way and getting us a table at Chu Da for our anniversary. The food at Chu Da was great, and we highly recommend it!

There's a lot of activities you can do in the village - archery, golf, badminton, tennis, swimming, ping pong, thai boxing (on certain days of the week), and so much more (even karaoke). There are lots of competitions arranged throughout the day, and they are fun! The nightly shows are great too, very funny and entertaining. You can tell a lot of effort went into them, and the crowd really enjoys them!

On the day of our departure we were saddened to leave cuz we had so much fun during the 5 days we were there. We were totally surprised when Jaya and the GOs we were familiar with were there to say goodbye to us (in the afternoon the GO from golf asked us when we were leaving and said he'd be there to say bye to us, and he actually came. Totally surprised!). We didn't expect they'd have the time cuz they're super busy and yet still seem to be all over the place. It just goes to show the effort they put in to make the trips so enjoyable.

As this was our first Club Med trip, we were totally impressed and are now strong advocates of the Club Med vacation. We've been back for a week now and still suffering from the "Club Med blues." We're already planning on where to go on our next Club Med trip!

To describe our Club Med experience in 2 words - ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!

My fiancé and I just returned for here and we had the most amazing time as we go engaged whilst there. In the first few days we where a little disappointed with the GO's but late found out all the amazing GO's we met had had the day off when we arrived. Our time in club med would not have been the same without the amazing Lisa, Mac, Anna, Stef, Sam, Mzala, Ryan and i would like to thank Sora for helping my fiancé arrange our engagement and for putting us in the suite on our last night. Lisa , Mac & Anna are 3 of the most amazing women i have ever met! Our trip would not have been the same without these girls, and i really hope i can stay in touch with them for a long time.. I have a few things to say to them... SPRUNGGG!! sawadeeekkaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!

If you go to Club Med Phuket and you like to party you must find Lisa if she is still there, she is so amazing, I cannot wait until she comes to Australia. Mac & Anna are 2 of the kinds people i have ever met. We are both so grateful to have met you all and i wish we didn't have to leave. I want to thank you all so much for helping us celebrate our engagment and creating all these beautiful memories.

The resort itself was great, the food was great. the only thing was the zen pool is so far away from the main section of the resort.

Our second trip to a Club Med resort and we were not disappointed.

Kids club, our three kids 8, 10 and 12 years had a great time supported as always by the wonderful GO's, Kay, Sheeba, Didier, Eugene, Sam, Nut, Not, Duke, Beam, Fah, Ice, Moss, Sentha, Tich, Orn and Ann.

Circus Club, Meow Meow (Kerry), Mackenzie, Wish, Marco as always great fun.

Bar Team was great, used a lot by the children and not by us at all..... always helpful in keeping the drinks topped up. Mzala (Will I Am), Roongring, Mook, Chen, Kobe, plus the other guys particularly the trainees all worked hard to keep us hydrated.......

Special mention to the GE's in the restaurants and the housekeeping teams, because without the back of house staff the whole experience would not be as good. Particularly the restaurant teams dealing with the demanding needs of the GM's. Special mention to Sunee, Lita and Sompong.

Other GO's to mention who made our stay enjoyable were Zindale (Golf), JP (Zak's dance partner), Jazz (Archery and Casino Night), Singh (Aerobics and Table Tennis), Marco (Lifeguard and Aerobics)

Accommodation was acceptable, and clean.

To all the other GO's not specifically mentioned the shows and activities provided were great as expected, and in particular to Jaya (I'm not finished!) (We are professionals!) we really enjoyed your leadership of the village whilst Chief De Village was away, your spirit and enthusiasm is to be admired. It was great to meet you and your great team in Phuket.

A great trip and thoroughly enjoyed.

We are already planning Club Med trip number 3!

We just returned from a 4d3n stay. We had previously stayed at Clubmed Bintan. Before my Phuket Clubmed trip, I read up a lot negative reviews on the cleanliness of Phuket clubmed rooms, the lukewarm attitude of the GOs n village chiefs and etc thus I wasn't having any high hopes in this few areas. But I was wrong. Firstly the rooms u got was rather clean n nice unlike what I read about but not sure if its cos I paid slightly more for a terrace room but it was nice, clean n spacious. When I reached the welcome party wasn't as warm or friendly or a big welcome like the one we experienced at Bintan Clubmed but as I stayed on, I realised though that once we are more familiar with the people or GOs, they are really a lovely, friendly bunch. My kids enjoyed themselves tremendously at the petite club n mini club n on several occasion when I was going around the mini club looking for my kiddos, I saw how patiently all the other GOs were, with the babies, so patiently feeding them n playing with them. I can tell that all the GOs from the kids club were amazing, attentive n very professional with the kids. Keeping them entertained with the exciting lineup of activities n always making sure the kids are well taken care off. My 3.5 years old and 6 years old had a amazing time throughout the 4 days. U can also feel the high spirit of the mini club when u hear them approaching with cheers. Every GOs we met were so nice n helpful n the acting Village Chief Jaya was so helpful n friendly. The only thing i hv negative feedback was the food. Firstly I feel that the dinner timing are rather late starting at 6.45pm cos most kids don't dine that late. N the food quality n variety aren't anything to rave about. In comparison to Bintan clubmed, Phuket food was rather bad. The buffet food was rather mediocre n doesn't taste good. It was rather disappointing cos the food at bintan clubmed was amazing n comparable to 5 star hotel buffet spread in Singapore so after eating the food at Phuket clubmed, it was rather disappointing. But overall I would give Phuket clubmed a 4 stars for the amazing people n atmosphere. Will definitely come back but prob will visit Baku first.

People all rave about club med vacations. We finally decided to embark on a much sought after club med vacation. We were picked up as promised and the ride to the resort was uneventful. The lobby was spectacular and we were warmly welcomed by the GOs, with drinks to refresh ourselves. We arrived at about 12 noon and the check in time was 3pm. We were presently surprised that one of our three rooms were ready for us so we could go to our room immediately. That was wonderful. The room did not quite meet our expectation. It was clean, no doubt but it was weathered. Minimal amenities with no bath tub! I guess with all the rave, I was perhaps expecting a luxurious room!! The air conditioner was not working (it happened twice in our 5 days there)! Not impressed since it is hot in phuket. We adjourned to have lunch at the main restaurant, which also had No air conditioning. There was a wide spread of cuisines from different countries. The food was edible but not yummilicious.

We have four kids, aged 5, 9, 13 and 15. We put them all in kids club for the full day the next morning. CHRISTINA and Calvin (the teenagers) joined pass world. There is a room for them to hand out called utopia. The GO in charge of them is Didier. Didier was amazing with them. He was involved and humorous. He swan with the kids and brought them to the beach. He was flexible and allowed the kids to choose the activites they wanted to do, rather than following a fixed schedule. It was great that way coz the kids could all enjoy the things they preferred. My kids felt that he did his job wonderfully we'll and they loved him. He was also very good with updating the parents on the kids activities and how they were doing. He is always cheerful and full of smiles and I laugh when he calls out to me " bye bye mummy" or "hello mummy". Funny. Anyway, my kids wanna visit him again soon!

Christopher (9 years) went to kids club under the charge of Kay. He absolutely loved her. She was friendly and entertained them well. She knew they liked swimming and arranged for them to swim extra. She made language lesson interesting by telling them personal stories which the children enjoyed. She was also very communicative and made Christopher feel very welcomed. Nut was very fun to play with. He entertained them well in the pool. Randy was very funny and made them laugh. He also organized very fun pool races. Not was also very attentive and looked after the children well. He calmed the kids when they couldn't find us and stayed with them till we appeared.

Angelina (5) was watched by Sam. Sam was very attentive to their needs and she speaks politely all the time. It is clears she enjoys being with the younger lot. She took care of them well and is patient and kind.

Swapnil was amazing. He was very attentive to our needs and never failed to enquire and follow up on issues. He organised amazing water polo games and roped in many to participate. The games were always fun filled and full of life. He also joined us for our meals on a few occasions and he was chatty and friendly. He was jovial and smiley and shared stories with us. He convinced CHRISTINA to go on stage to represent the GOs from India during the night performance. It was hilarious. Swapnil was also very helpful and approachable and made a lot of effort to involve everybody.

Another of our favourite GOs was Arturo, the resident DJ. Always smiling and cheery, he was fun to have during meal times, often teasing my littlest daughter! Christopher also enjoyed chatting with him coz he was interesting and funny and he's clearly Christopher's favourite GO. The music he played was wonderful and we enjoyed it thoroughly.

Zandile was a great golf coach, although he did not manage to convince Christopher to take up golf as a sport. He was very patient in coaching and was really funny. He had inspirational stories to share and talked to Calvin about goals and aspirations! Truly amazing! He took time to give Christopher a one on one coaching lesson.

We would also like to commend the circus crew. They were clear with their instructions, humorous and great conversationalist. They were also amazing at the trapeze! They were so good that CHRISTINA was able to do the hang a few times! Great team they were!!

Overall, it's the GOs that made club med an awesome experience! We would definitely go again, to see these wonderful people again! The GOs discharged their duties well and it is them that made club med a "WOW" vacation. We'll be back,

This is our annual family holiday. We vary greatly in ages but there is something for everyone at Club Med Phuket. You can choose to be as active or as lazy as you like. For the sporty there is tennis, archery, scuba lessons, aerobic classes, golf and an in house circus. For relaxation there
are pools, the beach or the beautiful gardens for a stroll.
The restaurants and the food served were outstanding. The lovely thing at this hotel is that there was an Asian selection every night. Exquisite food from Thailand, Japan, Korea and India, along with tasty European dishes. This is accompanied by good quality wine too.
After dinner there is always a fabulous live show in the open-air theatre.
The other great thing about this resort is it's situated in the town so it's possible to go exploring. We also took 2 tours (booked through Club Med.) The elephant safari and Phi Phi Islands. I would strongly recommend both.
What made this holiday extra-special for us were the amazing GO's. They were the friendliest we have ever met. I would particularly like to mention Lisa Kruger, Stefanie Lee, Marco Di Paolo and Reno (circus.) They were always smiling, courteous, super-friendly and true ambassadors.
A fabulous holiday with lasting, cherished memories.
On a final note-which Club Med next year??
