I stayed at the Amari for 13 wonderful nights. After a long hot journey from the aiport to the hotel, I was met in reception with a smile and a cold flannel. I was immediately upgraded from a superior to a luxury room. On entrance to the room there was champagne and an exquisite spread of Thai delicacies waiting for me. Being met with this after a 14 hour journey from Heathrow airport, I knew this would be a memorable holiday.
My room was situated on the ground floor with a wonderful ocean view. There was a jetty on my left and literally my own private beach in front me. The bathroom was large with quality complementary toiletries. There was a free personal safe, tea & coffee facilities, bottled water, a minibar and plenty of wardobe space. The kingsize bed and pillows were very comfortable, I had no problems getting to sleep at night. The food was amazing. The breakfast buffet had food from the four corners of the globe and it catered for all palettes. I did not meet one person who did not have a good word to say about the catering offered in the morning. The Amari have several exceptional restaurants, although expensive it's definitely worth paying the few extra baht. The one that stood out for me was the La Gritta Restaurant - it served great Italian cuisine.
As you might of read from other contributors the Amari is situated on a secluded private beach on top of a hill away from the main tourist area. However, I saw the quiet location with its panoramic views over Patong Bay as a plus point. It got you away from the madness of Bangla Road which is only 10 minutes on foot or if you feeling particulary lazy you could always get a tuk-tuk; a number are always located just outside the hotel.
The Amari has 2 large outdoor swimming pools, a reasonable sized fitness room and 2 tennis courts. The hotel spa treatments are expensive but luxurious. Admittedly, you can obtain spa treatments a lot cheaper in Patong, but be warned you may get more than you bargained for.
The staff at the Amari are excellent. They have a good command of English and provide superb customer service. I could not fault any of the staff in that respect. If you demand luxury, tranquillity, good food and exemplary customer service whilst on holiday, I would certainly recomment the Amari. I am already planning my next visit.
