Reviewed 3 November 2013

The hotel is located at a nice spot of the Kamala beach view. We stayed in a Sea View Jacuzzi Suite room type, which gave us a very nice view.

Though the lobby is not so elegant, the room we stayed has a living room, kitchen and a jacuzzi. The room was designed by having a lifted floor, separating bedroom and living room. Jacuzzi is outside at the balcony with a couple chairs for their guests to relax and spend their time watching the amazing view from the room.

For us, the signature of this hotel are their large marble swimming pool, Plum and Vanilla Sky Bar restaurants.

In the evening, my friends and I were enjoy swimming in the pool and looking at the view. The pool was constructed with white marble. With its lengthy, and steps within the pool gave us a pleasure time.

The most romantic place that you must try is the Plum restaurant. There are 4 romantic tables giving you the feeling like you are sitting in a pool. If you come here with your boyfriend/girlfriend, I would recommend to have dinner here at about 5.30pm - 7pm. So you can enjoy a wonderful moment with a very nice sunset. I couldn't explain how beautiful it is here, I really love it.

Vanilla Sky Bar is located at the top of the hotel. Spending time here at night is also wonderful. Wind and nice weather of winter in Phuket make this place good for relax for almost a whole night.

Overall, I feel neutral for the room, because the decoration is clean and neat. But it might not so luxury.

I gave five starts for both restaurants. I can spend time their drinking and chit chat with my friends.

With its location, I would recommend this hotel for couples who want to come for spending time together.

Room Tip: Try Plum restaurant at least once during sunset time.

Though the property is very nice, the main problem is management. As a sample I am talking about "Vanilla Sky Bar". It is total ripp off. They nicely advertise themself as a cold and warm tapas and free flow of wine buffet but all you get is a blatant barefaced rip-off. For a buffet you will get awfull quality cold bites (like microwaved bread and horrible quality hummus). For the wine you get the fake awfull tasting wine of an unknown origin. All this for a price of a luxurious sea food buffet in an internationally recognised buffet as Dusit Thani, Banyan Tree or even heavenly Trisara Phuket. Do not waste time (it's on unreachable remoted hill), money (better splurge on some real seafood extravaganza), and most of all precious vacation time. Vanilla Sky Bar of Cape Sienna is the worse experience I have had at Phuket. Just find something else...

Dear Dosada,

I need to clarify a few things so that readers do not misunderstand your review.
1) We never advertised that we have a Tapas buffet in low season. We do have monthly events flyers which are also posted on our website for updated information. You assumed that in low season it is the same as in high season, without checking the updated information.
Exactly what we advertise is: Fridays...Wine & Tapas Night. All you can eat...Tapas & Free Flow of wine at 1,290 Baht net.
We have a little bread corner with 'Fresh' bread and different dips and then you can tick a choice of cold and hot Tapas as much as you want and as often as you want. They will be served to you.
I do not see that there is anything misleading in our advertising.
2) The wine we use is the same wine we use since 4 years, no difference whatsoever and we had no complains about it at all. It comes from Chile, not an 'unknown' origin.
If you indeed can get a fantastic seafood buffet with FREE FLOW of wine for the same price somewhere else, that is great and I would love to know where, as I personally would go there as well.
Wines are expensive here in Thailand with huge taxes (just further increased) and I can promise you that our Friday Wine & Tapas have a very low profit margin on it, it is more advertising and PR than a money making business.
3) Remote and unreachable. Hmmm, you can park in front of the hotel, which is 400 meters from main Kamala beach and go by lift up to the restaurants, I would hardly call this unreachable.
4) if you are looking for a full seafood buffet indeed you are looking at the wrong place, as Vanilla Skybar is a Wine, Cocktail and Tapas bar.

I have personally spoken to you and you have not stayed in the resort but came from outside, therefore commenting on the entire property is certainly misleading.

It is a shame that you have not been able to appreciate what we offer and make false claims here that we advertise something we don't provide.

Yours Sincerely,

Frank Dreist

What a truely beautiful place. Staff were helpful and good. The room was lovely although the bed was two large singles put together. You get to choose the aroma smells of the soaps and everything for you room. Each time we came back to our room at night it smelt wonderful. The Poolside Restaurant and Bar was great, lovely food and good staff. The Rocks was great and the perfect place for sitting back relaxing, enjoying a dip in the pool and enjoying the glorious sea view whilst sipping a cocktail. Wasn't 100% on the Plum Restaurant - to us the seafood was a bit over cooked and dry, but the service was great and everything else there was yummy. Then there is the Vanilla Bar - Excellent, great service really friendly and fun staff and the Tapas are delicious. Will be going back for another holiday as it was just grand. Didn't want to leave.

Room Tip: Lovely room but try for one on the upper floors!

We stayed here 5 years ago, and decided to go back and see if it was as gorgeous as the last time. We were not disappointed, I'm not sure why some reviewers say it is "run down", far from it, considering it is Asia, I think it still looks as great as it did 5 years ago. Everything from the awesome views at every turn , the cool lounge music played at reception and breakfast, to the delicious food and smiling staff makes for a completely chilled out hotel. I'm just a little miffed at parents who bring their children to this obviously adults only hotel, there is no shallow pool or kids menu/club and the poor kids who were there looked bored out of their minds, surely they could do a bit of research and take them to a kid-friendly place? (It is advertised as adults only)
The Taxi scenario is not as bad as some reviewers make out, Just use the guys out the front, it's a territory issue within a country that we are merely visiting, so just go with the flow, one fare to them is still not even equivalent to what we get paid an hour. I would recommend this hotel for couples who like to relax and feel pampered!

Room Tip: All rooms have magnificent views.

Rooms:
Our room was larger than expected with a beautiful view of the ocean. They were clean, spacious and had a beautiful rain-like shower.

Service:
The staff were really lovely, particularly U-Thai who works at the restaurant.

Location:
Cape Sienna was was very peaceful and quite. The nearest beach is a bit poxy, but this is easily rectified with a 400 Bt cab ride to the nice part of Kamala or Surin beaches does the job perfectly. Sienna on the rocks pool provides a secluded relaxation option for those who don't want to leave the hotel.

Hotel has a boutique feel and look but a bit too many rooms to be considered boutique. This lobby must have one of the best sea views. Happily each of the rooms have sea facing vistas, although the ones to the right of the hotel have the better views.
Rooms are well appointed and come with free wifi which is always a welcome bonus. The breakfast buffet has limited choice for a 5 star rated hotel. It has a decent sized pool that overlooks the ocean.
The hotel runs a daily shuttle to both Phuket town and Patong. Please book your seat early if you wish to use this service. Taxis in Phuket are not cheap and the fare to Phuket will set you back 500 baht
The hotel ran several food and beverage promotions during my stay so could prove worthwhile if you don't want to make the trek to Patong. There are several eateries within a 1 km walk from the hotel too
