“boutique great food, massage, personal attention breakfast served in villa and car & driver!”
Reviewed 23 February 2010

we stayed in the one bedroom villas at the poolside - great to have our baby sleep inside while we played with our older girls by the pool - meters from the villa. Villas were very nicely appointed and double the size of a good sized hotel room. They were light and airy (bathrooms had large bath separate shower and great skylight) bed was comfortable plenty of pillows and they kindly put down 2 mini matresses for our girls in our room. Food from Wipa's was really VERY good. Excellent quality and having a full cooked breakfast served in the villa - housekeeper would lay the table and set everything out for us and made fresh toast and tea / coffee in the kitchenette (real coffee from Saeco coffee machine!) was really nice. living area inlcuded a kitchenette with dining table TV DVD player etc - they had soem music and DVD's that we could use and no trouble for them to find more. Inclusive of their rate is free wireless internet, use of a car and driver for 9 hours a day and 2x 45 min massage in our villa all which were excellent! - we went out for half day with kids then for dinner at night. One night we got a tip by the owners (Khun Wipa & Khun Methee both foodies) to go to a local restaurant that had views as good as "baan rim Pa" in patong but food was incredibly cheap! 120-180 THB for mains! Wished we had more time to do the bbq by the villa poolside which would have been fun. Next time we'll do the very nicely appointed 3 bedroom villas - huge with OWN pool etc and better views! Here's what NOT to do - dont try and do a boat tour to Khai island when its a public holiday week - it was a waste of money and it was like packing tourists like sardines. We didnt stay for the lunch and paid to get off the island asap!

Having returned back to a snowy Finland from sunny Phuket only a couple of hours ago, we just have to close our eyes to be back in the pool of villa Chandra, with the view over the lush surrounding hills and Chalong Bay in the distance! What a treat we were offered at Rising Sun Residence - it is everything previous reviewers have described and more: we think that Khun Methee, Khun Wipa and their wonderful staff are able to provide something unique that speaks to the exact needs of every guest. For us, it was the unexpected possibility to show family and friends a side of Phuket other than the crowded streets and beaches of Patong, and to experience a hotel other than the anonymous - although very nice - Hilton at Karon beach where we also stayed - and we all fell in love! Our warmest thoughts to Benja for making us feel so much at home - and of course for arranging everything from table reservations to hair cuts! We will also miss the wonderful care of the housekeepers very much - in particular the way they tended to our Linn and made her feel comfortable. Hope to meet you all again! Liselott & family

Our stay at Rising Sun Residence was absolutely amazing! For the last 4 days of our Thailand holiday, we wanted somewhere small and luxurious with personalised service, and that's exactly what we got!! The service was outstanding. Benja (our wonderful personal concierge) made reservations for us at recommended restaurants, arranged massages, and was at our beckoned call. We had a driver for 9 hours per day who drove us wherever we wanted to go, and waited patiently while we shopped, had lunch, massages, etc. We also had our own housekeeper who brought breakfast to our villa in the morning, cleaned our villa, and cut up fresh fruit for us every day. And the delightful owners Methee and Wipa..... They made us feel so welcome - like part of the family! We had dinner with them one night (they even arranged for us to have mango with sticky rice, a favourite of mine) and they were wonderful hosts - it was like we'd known them for ages!

We stayed in a one bedroom villa - it was beautiful! Tastefully furnished and more like a small home than holiday accommodation. The setting is beautiful - lush, tropical gardens surrounding the pool, immaculately maintained. There isn't much within walking distance, but that didn't matter at all because our driver took us wherever we wanted to go. The Sabai Sabai package with all its inclusions was fantastic value for money. All in all, we were treated like royalty and like part of the family. This was our 3rd trip to Phuket and we've stayed in at least 5 other hotels, but this was by far the best place we've stayed. We would definitely recommend it!!!

We have just returned home after spending two fantastic weeks at the Rising Sun Residence. This was our second stay here in five months and it will not be our last.
Rising Sun Residence has become a friendship more than a stay. This is all due to the owners Khun Methee and Khun Wipa and also their loyal staff, who work dilligently to make your stay with them memorable. For us the second time around has been an a cullinary adventure. Khun wipa went beyond our all ready high expectations by introducing us to new dishes such as Miang Kum and Long Tao Jiew. She surprised us with our favourite fruits which she searched the markets for. We would come home from a busy day and there on our table was always something special that excited and delighted us. We can not thank Khun Wipa enough for her generousity of spirit.
To top this off, we did the cooking class with Khun Wipa and she had designed a whole new menu for us. So we moved from beginners to advanced. LOL. The cooking class is really informative and good fun. I can only wonder what surprises Khun Wipa will have for us next year. Yes, we are planning our return again next year.
There are so many positives about the Rising Sun Residence that the list is too long to write it all down. Great accomodation. Great service. Great help....just ask and they will help you choose and organise anything from trips to a great massage in your room.
PLUS they usually are able to get you a decent discount on things. Each day we would see Khun Methee or Khun Wipa for a personalised touch and a chat. Also to be thanked for a fantastic job was Khun Benja who manages the Residence. Not only a delightful and sincere person but very efficient as well. Nothing was too much of an inconvenience for her. This was really appreciated by us. Also the maids were lovely and helped us with learning a few Thai words. They also were so eager to help you and no request was over looked. Also to thank are the gardener and the pool guys. We also have to thank our driver Khun Sonn Mitt who was always reliable. We apprecited being invited to his home to meet his family. Thank you Mitt!
Honestly, each stay gets better and better. It really was very hard to say goodbye to everyone but the good news is that we will return next year.
On behalf of my partner Steven, his mother and sister, my brother Philip and his son Callum and also my sister Elsie I say THANK YOU and i say it with great sincerity.
SEE YOU ALL NEXT YEAR.!!!!!!!
Like i said last time, do yourself a favour and try the Rising Sun residence.....it will be a choice you will not regret.

Having travelled to Phuket for the last 20 years, most of them staying in our 'preferred' hotels, we decided to splash out for a special occasion, our 25th wedding anniversary and book into the Rising Sun Residence - this was three years ago - needless to say we have been back every year since. The level of sevice offered with this type of accommodation is unsurpassed by any 'standard' hotel - you have the best of both worlds with the services of a hotel, but the privicy of a villa - and what a villa !! We stayed in the three bedroom villa, with the services of a daily maid, mini van with driver for nine consecutive hours, which allows you to visit they island haunts as and when you choose. The owners, Wipa and Methee go out their way to promote Phuket and to encourage their guests to get the best from their trip with the opportunity to enjoy the real Thailand. Even we, as regular visitors to Thailand had a great insite to some of the joys Phuket has to offer. The villas themselves are without doubt, total and absolute quality, which is also mirrored by the level of personalised service offered by all the staff. I cannot recommend this concept highly enough, the owners have pulled together a fabulous package, which is unique, but so worth the experience.

This was our second stay at The Rising Sun Residence. We thought we had struck gold when we first visited in 2006. Our last stay was even better, we were treated like one of the family by the owners Khun Methee and his wife Khun Wipa. We stopped both times in a one bedroom villa, good sized lounge dining kitchen, there is a large master bedroom, with dressing room and a substancial bathroom with bath and large walk in shower. In the basic price and there are various options, the main ones being
Transfer from and to Phuket airport. Daily use of car with driver for 9 hours. Daily breakfast cooked and served at your own villa. Unlimited tea, coffee and drinking water. 45 min. Thai massage at your own villa ( a bit strenuous for me). Daily supply of fresh tropical fruits. Daily housekeeping services. Discount from Phuket best known restaurants, shops and Phuket Country Club (Golf Course). As we stopped in October we also recieved one dinner at Wipa's Thai Cuisine and a day trip to Coral Island with lunch. We have stoped at some of the very best hotels in Asia. The rising Sun can stand shoulder to shoulder with all of them. Situated in the Chalong area close to Wat Chalong. Well worth a stay.
