“The best in Thailand”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

We had a memorable week at Twin Sands. The apartment is as good as it gets. The staff were terrific. Views are lovely, albeit a work in progress. The Blue Mango restaurant is a 5 star for food. It is about 10 minutes from Patong, which is nice. The shuttle makes it easy to get in and out. Overall would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Try the one bed apartments.

We stayed for a week recently and had a wonderful time. The complex is fairly new & was clean & rooms spacious with lovely views. It's a great place to relax, the pool area is very inviting with a view to look at too. It's out of the hustle bustle of Patong. There is a shuttle from the hotel so it makes going into Patong easy, though the last shuttle leaves Patong at about 9.30pm, would be good if there was one that left an hour later to enjoy some nightlife. A tuk tuk can be taken & costs 200 - 250 baht, depending on how you barter! There is the TriTrang beach you can walk to & at present there are fences due to building going on across road but walk past merlin beach to 1st restaurant & can access beach that way. The Merlin Beach is also good to swim at, if not a rough day & if down that way the ladies to the right on the beach do a good massage or pedicure etc for 300 baht. Though I must say the spa at the resort is well worth a try, costs more than the beach but its relaxing, private & comfortable, I had the best neck massage ever!
For a good hike take the 1.5km trek to Paradise beach, pay 100 baht for a seat & enjoy the well deserved swim, it's a very hilly trek! You could however take a tuk tuk or hire a bike, to make it less strenuous.
We will definitely come back to this resort again, the staff are lovely & do their best to make your stay enjoyable.

We stayed as Absolute members for a week and had a pleasurable experience. The place was always clean and the staff were fantastic. Many of the staff are doing English classes to further enhance there efforts in providing service. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. The pool was great and it was a joy to get the obligatory cocktail each afternoon after a swim from the smiling staff. The meals we had at the Blue Mango were fantastic and the effort that Claudio and the staff are putting in to make it a 5 star experience was a credit. The shuttle bus worked well and I had no problems getting a Tuk Tuk back outside of the shuttle bus schedule. The gym was also great. Thankyou to all of you who made our experience so pleasurable.

First a disclaimer, my wife and I are 4 week Fractional Owners of a 1 bed apartment at this new boutique development, which we visited for the first time in June 2013, following the opening of Twin Sands stage 1 earlier in 2013. We 'bought' on the basis of having an annual winter break from our home in Canberra, in a location half way to Europe. Buying off the plan in a foreign country is perhaps a bit of a risk, but Twin Sands has more than exceeded our expectations. The design and construction quality is of international standard and the interior décor is simple, practical, spacious and very comfortable.
The resort provides personalised airport transfers, so you start your holiday after a 45 minutes drive in a relaxed style at the resort reception where very friendly staff go out of their way, in their typical Thai way, to make you feel at home.
Located on the peninsula just south of busy Patong Beach, Twin sands is a quiet place, with its two stage 1 six storey blocks, each with 6 apartments per floor, all set quite high above the ground, each apartment having views to the sea. There is a nice two level swimming pool, a gym and Thai massage facility. The Blue Mango restaurant is run by Europeans and sets a quite high standard in quality of food and service, but is not overpriced, its a very pleasant place for breakfast, a snack or that more special evening meal.
Adjoining the rear and uphill from Twin Sands is a large building site, and across the road (currently cutting off access to the beach facing Patong) is an even larger new resort site. Both these sites suggest that the peninsula has been discovered and that it will have more to offer in a couple of years time. At the moment there are no shops, within walking distance of the resort. Twin Sands provides a free shuttle bus service several times a day, 7 days a week to and from Patong, which is about a 7 minute drive. Construction of stage 2 of twin Sands, which will more than double toe overall size of the resort, had not commenced when we were there, but the layout of the resort is such that I suspect there will be minimal noise or disruption to stage 1.
We were very impressed with Twin Sands, and with our spacious self contained and fully equipped 1 bedroom apartment. During our stay this year we found the Thai staff to be very attentive, responding to any issue quickly and cheerfully, all just adding to the joy of being there. We plan to visit every year for the foreseeable future and look forward to enjoying a thoroughly relaxing and comfortable few weeks.

Room Tip: No rooms would be noisy, the road has little traffic so that's not ever an issue. The higher fl...

As Absolute members we stayed 7 nights with family as our guests in the resorts studio units. The studios were lovely, well appointed and spacious.
The staff at the resort were great, kind, gentle and very helpful. The Blue Mango Resturant was lovely and we were well looked after. There were just a few language issues but nothing that couldn't be over come with a little time and understanding.
The view was great from the 3rd floor in A block. We tried the resturant for breakfast one morning at the Merlin, but the Blue Mango beats it hands down. Pool was great but beaches not that great.
Only a couple of suggestions, perhaps have a couple of luggage racks in the rooms to put you bags and some fresh milk instead do the coffee whitener.
Our stay was great, thanks to the Team of staff.

Did not stay at this resort but wish we had. We ate at the Blue Mango several times and it has by far the best food we have ever eaten in Thailand (and we have been there 12 times now) The staff are professional and friendly and we highly recommend you try this restaurant

A little away from all the hustle and commotion of Patong Beach and not really close to the beach but the service and the rooms were some of the best I've ever been in. The onsite Spa was such a great experience that my wife and I went twice. The on site gym had every thing I needed and had me going back every morning, I usually wake up early and the door was always kept open and I just had to turn the lights on. The cab drivers were friendly and very helpful trying to meet our needs. The restaurant staff were very friendly and the food was as good as I could get any where in town, well worth the money. Ask for Obee Bee who just did everything she could to make sure we had a pleasant experience and was such an engaging young woman always had us smiling.
