This resort is different from the Anantara Phuket Villas. So please note. I had booked it under the impression that it was Phuket Villas.However I dont regret booking this. Its a fantastic resort. It is located next to JW Marriot Vacation Club and away from the hustle of Patong. So if you are looking for a relaxing vacation than this is the place you should be. Let me go point by point
Rooms: I stayed with my wife and 3 year daughter for 8 nights from Aug 10 to Aug 18 in a one bed room apartment. I must say the room was very good, much better than my expectations. The living room was spacious and the kitchen was well equipped. Bed room was big too. Pls note one bed room can occupy 4 adults. I would give 9/10 for the room
Kids club: Excellently maintained and the most important part is the staff - I must commend NA and her team. They do a very good job by keeping the kids engaged. We had gone for spending our daughters birthday and my daughter enjoyed thoroughly. If u want your kids to be kept occupied while u enjoy the resort facilities must say you wound want them to be in the kids area
Swimming Pool: Big and well maintained. There is bar in the pool as well.
Restaurant : We had dinner on most of the days in the CHAAM restaurant. Good and tasty food. However I didn't find the breakfast that exciting. Could have been better.
Location: Opposite Turtle village which has eating joints and a small super market.
Distance from the beach : 10 mins walk through the Anantara Phuket Villas.
Staff courtesy : Very helpful
Over all I am very happy with the experience and would rate this as one of the best vacation that I had.
Only downside: Rooms booked through dial n exchange are cleaned only on the 4th day. This was a bit of a problem for us . We had gone with a small kid and cleanliness was of utmost importance. My wife had to clean the room on the other days. I would suggest that they buildup cost of housekeeping in the price for the exchange.
