I visited Phuket with my wife and child, and here was Amari Coral Beach which took care of our holidays. The rooms were great and so was the room service. They sent a car to pick us up from the airport after a late night's flight with cold towel and water. The breakfast spread was mouthwatering and my wife and daughter just loved it. The property is worth exploring. The Sivara Spa was a little expensive as similar massages are available in the town at a lot cheaper rate..

The hotel is extremely well located I think. It is away from the hustle and bustle of Patong beach,but close enough to walk down to the beach. Tuk-Tuks are available at the hotel, if you choose not to walk.
The grounds are lush and well kept and the views are so beautfull. It is a grand and formal hotel with a breakfast to remember for the setting, the quality and variety. The breakfast area is a walk down some steps from the room where we were ,as the whole hotel is situated against the bank and terraced down to the beach and the 2 pools . The pool area is lovely with pool service available. We had dinner at La Gritta restaurant. The setting is absolutely superb, the food was good, but we found the staff aloof and unfriendly. We were surprised to pay additonal taxes and service charge at this restaurant.
Our superior room was adequate, with two twin beds. Bathroom is rather small with only a shower, not bath tub. We had an adjoining room with a double door, separating the rooms. Our neighbours were somewhat noisy, so that was annoying. We received three complimentary bottles of water every day.
Our flight was later than check out. We were able to store our luggage and could still lounge at the pool and were given a room to shower and refresh, before we left for the airport, which is a very nice option!
There is internet in the boutique @ 4$D per minute, which I thought was quite steep. They do have daily activities going for guests and these are put up on the board at one of the pools. Some are free, some are to be paid for.
There is live entertainment every night , which was enjoyable.

Room Tip: Daily shuttle from the hotel to Kata Beach.

We stayed at the amari coral for 14night in early aug 2010! I didnt want to come home from the monent i arrived in my opinion the best hotel on patong beach.
Hidden on the top of a wooden hillside away from all the noise of the clubs but not to far away from it only a 5min walk.
Staff in this hotel couldnt do enough for you and were so helpful even remembering your room numbers!
free bottled water in your room every day and the rooms were spotless the maids work so hard over 12hours a day clean towels every day most days the maids were in the room cleaning twice a day once in the morning then when we came home after a night out they had ben in again and remaid our bed and changed our towels they work so hard please give a little tip it goes a long way!
The food was lovely although the hotel was quite over priced for food. Buffet breakfast for free was lovley something for everyone and was always fresh!
I was nearly in tears going home i cant wait to go back.do not listen to the moaners fntastic hotel 10 out of 10

Room Tip: we stayed i room number 222 right on the beach

Fantastic Hotel/Resort. I've stayed in a few Hotels around Thailand and this is by far the best. The location, cleanliness, presentation, resturants, facilities and the general lay-out of the Resort were really lovely (beware there are a lot of steps). The staff were truely fantastic, really couldn't do enough for you. We stayed in a suite and although it was a lovely room we asked if we could move to a beach front suite, one became available 3 days into our stay and while we went out to celebrate Songkran the staff move all our luggage and settled us into our new room. I really can't praise the staff enough in this resort, not only do they clean your room they tidy it up as well! It's alot cheaper to eat and get your laundry done in Patong but that's the same in any resort - the prices can be a bit high. Highly highly recommend this hotel - I'll be going back.

Room Tip: Ask for a beach front room - fantastic views.

A truly excellent hotel. 2nd time we have stayed there. They put on such a special spread for our honeymoon, a cake, roses on the bed - staff are so amazing. Breakfast spread is brilliant. Location is phenomenal - take your mask and snorkel - probably the ONLY place on Patong where you can snorkel. They have a fantastic pier on the resort that goes right into the bay. Definately book a deluxe room and request a 2nd or 3rd floor room - they are RIGHT on the beach and it is beautiful to sit and watch at night. We HIGHLY recommend this hotel you will not be sorry (and this is our 4th time in Phuket).
Superior rooms are smaller and dont have nearly as nice a view - All deluxe rooms - all 3 floors have a view like photos as it is laid out across the beach front.

Room Tip: Book deluxe room - 2nd or 3rd Floor - SEA VIEW

After Reading the other reviews for this hotel I was shocked to see there was even one negative comment!!!

My partner and I agree that this is the best place we have ever stayed. We did get upgraded to a superior room which was gorgeous, with views out over the sea, it was quite a large room, with a good sized, very private balcony.

The food was absolutely amazing, the changing buffet each night was so impressive! And of a really high standard! Huge selection of food from all over!

The Thai restaurant in the hotel was a little expensive, but if you pay for your bill at the end you get a percentage off... The restaurant would be much more expensive if it was in England as the food was spectacular!

The atmosphere in the hotel bar was a little quiet but with live music very night and views over the ocean it wasn't really an issue. 2 happy hours per day too which can't be bad.

One thing we really enjoyed was the hotel's private jetty... The perfect place to watch the sunset wig a cocktail in hand.

The hotel was a haven from the busy patong bay. I would highly recommend this hotel for couples although there were some families there that were enjoying themselves too!

Were delighted to be informed that due to this being our 1st visit to Amari - we were being upgraded to a Deluxe Room (7115). Coming from a 3 night stay at a budget hotel (Seaview Resort - southern side Phuket) - the Amari was indeed luxury. We wanted to experience hotels on the northern and southern sides of Patong Beach. The professionalism, graciousness and friendliness of staff - as well as the aesthetically pleasing and peaceful environment of the hotel - made our stay extremely worthwhile.

Be prepared for a some exercise - which I welcomed - as there are quite a number of steps to negotiate. The walk to Patong beach is 10 minutes. The incline on the bridge as you return to the hotel is quite steep- but if you take it slow - it should not take you more than 10 minutes to get back to the hotel.

The breakfast buffet offers a wide variety - but the overall ambience in the breakfast area (the sound of water all around you - and the view of the sea) makes it a wonderful setting.

The Amari restaurants are quite pricey - resulting in us eating out in the Patong area most of the time. (Subway for fresh rolls and fillings for lunch) During the evenings we only ventured into those restaurants that were extremely busy - my way of judging that they were serving good food. If you have a sensitive stomach - stay clear from any of the Thai restaurants and stick to familiar places you know.

I did not spend too much time at the pool - and made the daily walk to Patong beach. Most people at the hotel did however seem to like sitting at the pool area for ages. Although it was always reasonably full - you could always find a lounger at the pool. The beach area outside the hotel is definitely not for swimming - only for taking a stroll.

Personally I really did not find anything worthwhile in the markets or at the hundreds of stalls on the street. ( Probably depends on what you are looking for.) I left all my shopping for Bangkok, and only purchased two small souvenirs in Phuket. Loved the Lady-Boys Caberet show (Simon's Caberet) as well as the 5 in 1 Safari. My most memorable experience - receiving a back massage from a Thai elephant. Priceless!!

Overall an enjoyable stay in Phuket.
