Absolute Twin Sands Resort & Spa
Ranked #48 of 327 Hotels in Patong
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 October 2013

We had the pleasure of staying at Twin Sands in July 2013. The resort had only been open a short time but was shaping up to be a vast improvement on fellow resort Absolute Nakalay.
The Apartment was very well appointed and equipped. We had a studio and the lay out impressive with a View that was superb. The bed was VERY firm as most Thai beds are, the bed was easily fixed with a rubber overlay we keep there.
The Blue Mango Restaurant was excellent. The Manager extremely eager to please assured us if what we desired for breakfast was not on the menu,--ask and we will do our best to cook it for you. This was done and very much appreciated ! The evening menu is great with plenty of options. The Wine list is impressive, and wines very well cellar-ed and presented.
We are returning next week for a two week stay with Family in a Two bedroom apartment and we are looking forward to another great holiday.
Twin Sands is a short distance from Patong, far enough to be a peaceful haven, but close enough to enjoy shopping, sightseeing, dining, and nightlife easily. In my view it is a huge advantage to have your own transport, although there a regular shuttle to town.
The on site facilities are very good, and the Ocean Beach a very short stroll away, what more could one wish for, we hope to be very regular visitors over the coming years, and look forward to sharing holidays with the rest of our family some time soon at Absolute Twin Sands

Room Tip: All rooms have a great view with a northerly aspect to Patong Bay

Stayed at twin sands for two weeks recently ( as members ) wanted to be impressed, very nice one bedroom apartment very well appointed, only has one restaurant although food was generally very good but breakfast choices quite limited, the staff were always helpfull but sometimes struggled with English, the shuttle service provided was very good and we used it a lot.
This resort is far from complete ( maybe in 3 or 4 years ) so to claim 5 star status at this time is a stretch let alone to call it a resort.
The massage and spa facility is fantastic, a high point of our stay, the staff are brilliant, we will stay there again when the project is complete, hope it's sooner than 4 years

Thanks for your review and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. We are currently building phase 2 and 3 of the resort such has been the demand. But phase one is up and running very successfully with the restaurant winning many plaudits since opening as well as the iSpa you enjoyed so much. I hope we can tempt to you back sooner as work is progressing very well so keep a look at out for all the updates.

We had the pleasure of staying at this resort recently. our apartment was lovely, very comfortable, great facilities.Equipped with a good kitchen, bathroom, comfy bed.The staff were very helpful.
The award winning restaurant is excellent & good value for money.
The downside is that it has only been open 6 months & is still in the process of completion. This means the view is of builders equipment & rubble etc. There is not, as yet, any shop, which means catching the shuttle bus into Patong Beach to buy supplies if you wish to self cater. While we were there it rained torrentially for the whole time & with nothing to do but wander around the trashy shops along the beach front it lost some of it's excitement. Once completed it will be wonderful but it's early days yet.

Room Tip: Ask for a room higher up to get a better view.

Thank you for your comments and understanding that it is only phase one that is now complete and the area as such has not fully developed. We aim to make our guests as happy as possible and keeping the work going on around the resort to impact as minimally as possible during this time. So I am pleased to here that the most of your holiday was memorable and we look forward to welcoming you again sooner rather than later.

WE are part fo the club absolute and stayed here in July 2013 for a week. We usitlsed our free week whihc we had no trouble booking. The hotel is new and lovely- far enough away from Patong beach (5-7 mins) but still close to go shopping etc. The hotel have all the facilites. gym, resturant (yummy, clean and very well priced). Only downfall in the poor service levels- the pool bar was never open and no pool side service. we travelled with our 2 year old and while we had on 1 minor incident the hotel is probaly not best suited to tavelling with kids there (no kids pool or activities)

Thank you for your review. It is true we are having issues with the pool bar and are endeavouring to make this available at all times in the future. Similarly there are no children specific amenties at the resort and currently no children's pool. So I am sorry that these could not be provided for you at this time. This is the first phase of our development and we will talk your comments on board.

My husband and I had a week at the Twin Sands and loved our stay there. We had a roomy one bedroom apartment that was beautifully decorated and had all the mod cons. The staff are so friendly and helpful and were quick to respond to any little requests. I like a softer mattress so they added a mattress topper to my bed!! The pool was lovely and relaxing and we made good use of the swim up bar - beautiful cocktails made to order by Poppy. Love the location away from the bustle of Patong and the Blue Mango is an excellent restaurant to eat at. Look forward our next visit.

Superd location in an serene environment away from the buzzling noises if looking for a secluded holiday. Room are fantastically well appointed and new. Its very own Blue Mango restaurent are undoubtedly the finest in Patong and value for money.

We are Absolute members and this was our first visit to Phuket after joining in Samui a couple of years ago. We were thrilled with Twin Sands for it's peaceful location, spacious apartments and quality fitout. There is obviously a lot yet to be constructed but Stage 1 was perfectly adequate in terms of providing all the comforts for a relaxing holiday. The pool deck was lovely with a nice view of the lagoon (some construction going on down there too, but it didn't bother us) and a great pool bar well looked after by Pappi, a very attentive bartender! The Blue Mango restaurant was truly magnificent - thank you to Claudio and staff for looking after us so well. A fantastic menu with great variety and 5 star meals. Special mention to Bee, a truly lovely waitress who our girls wanted to adopt and bring home! The shuttle service is great if you do wish to go into Patong although we were glad to be away from there. We visited the gym a couple of times and found it to be well equipped despite its deceptively small size. My massage at the spa was fantastic. Absolute consultants regularly take visitors through the place but we didn't find that too intrusive. If you are not used to the hard mattresses that are quite standard in Thailand I believe you can ask for a soft mattress. We can't wait to go back to Twin Sands and see how the development is progressing. If you are after an "on beach" resort this is not the place for you, but I would rather be up high with nice views and a good breeze, so this was perfect for us.

Room Tip: We had a one BR apartment on the corner of A building, on the top floor. Nice views and incredibly s...
