“Beautiful rooms and setting has the potential to be 5 star but the food is terrible.”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

Beautiful resort lovely staff on reception and the kids play area and restaurants. The food is awful, not sure if the "real" chef had taken the month off with it being quieter. The breakfast was greasy and lacked quality products and variety, lots of flys hovering over the cheese and fruits, cold coffee, no low fat milk. Room service I ordered a Thai curry it was standard but the rice had a fly in it. I told three staff members and they just said ok. Last day we ordered 3 burgers 2 adults and 1 child. We all felt ill. My 5 year old was sick about 8 times, this was a big worry as I feared dehydrated luckily it was the last day so we were able to fly back. I would recommend the hotel staff/f and b manager have breakfast in one of dubai's 5 star Jumeirah hotels so they can see what good looks like. It's a shame the food let the venue down. We had some great recommendations outside thankfully.

Dear Racheldubai1,

Thank you for your feed back on TripAdvisor after your experience at The Vijitt Resort Phuket.

We noted that over all you and your family were happy with our resort and services however there are some rooms to be improved such as the variety of buffet breakfast. Our experienced chef who used to work with hotels aboard for several years has created many varieties dishes for the breakfast. the breakfast consists of 3 different areas: one is cold room for salad bar, fresh fruits, fruit juices, breakfast serials, yogurts. The hot dish for both Thai and standard breakfast menu and variety of bread as well as Thai snack for breakfast. the last part at "open kitchen" with noodle soup, egg station made to order and waffle and pancake. I will personally discuss with our Food and Beverage team to monitor and focus on communication so that the service will be improved.

Racheldubai1, please allow us to make the improvement and hope you will be back to Phuket and Vijitt Resort will be your home and away from home again.

With my best wishes,

Peerawut Kunchorn (Chris)

We had visited this resort in August for a family holiday.

The resort is amazing. The check-in was smooth.

The rooms are well furnished with excellent view of the sea since we had the sea facing villa. The bathroom is huge and the outdoor rain shower adds to the luxury.

The breakfast was decent in terms of variety but the taste was excellent. The restaurant food was amazing during lunch and dinner.

Kids club has excellent entertainment for the children along with a kids pool.

The only thing is that you might have to walk a little either to restaurant or the reception as the resort is built on a slope, however the resort's buggy service is excellent whenever you require to travel anywhere in the resort.


Overall a fantastic property to stay even with kids. Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: Take the Sea View villas as they are near to the restaurant and the pool.

A lovely resort with wonderful setting. Its away from the Phuket madness and the perfect place to sit back and remember what a holiday is about.
The rooms are lovely but starting to look a little tired. Breakfast was good. The staff were polite but not as friendly as in Chiang Mai or Krabi.
The hotel has a great pool which seemingly stretches into the sea and on into the distance. Its not possible to swim in the sea by the hotel as there is a huge sandbank which continues out for about a kilometer.
We found the hotel well placed for what we wanted and out transfers for a days diving were quick and easy to access. It was a wonderfully relaxed option for Phuket. Highly recommended if you are not interested in the normal Phuket craziness but keen to access the local dive spots.

Dear TouringTrick,

Thank you for your feedback on TripAdvisor while staying at The Vijitt Resort Phuket.

We are happy to hear that while staying with us, we can make you feel at home with our delivery services and facilities.

We also noted that for some of your comments, the villas are on going of touching up and make them look inviting. We have kept doing from one to another to make all the 92 villas look inviting.

As we are on the opposite side of Patong/Kata and Karon. We have high tide and low tide and the benefits of those are we have no any motor engines on our beach and when the low tide comes we will have an activity "Marine Walk" which I can say that it is only at Vijitt who creates this activity and we also have many guests join it. This is also make our beachfront calm and good to relax. However, if our guests would like to go for another beaches for swim. our shuttle bus service as schedule also available.

Your feedback will be posted our our staff and they will proud to be "Vijitt" and look very much forward to having you back home with our Thai hospitality service again soon.

With my best wishes,

A stunning setting, exquisite service, and in many ways a unique environment in Phuket. We had the pleasure of staying in both a beachfront villa and were fortunate to be upgraded to a private pool villa both these accommodations exceeded our expectations. An added surprise was the excellent and well composed breakfast with a brisk and very service minded restaurant staff.
An added plus was the service we received when we lost one of our credit cards - a special thanks for all the support and care of this concern from the front desk - Thanks!

We will come back to you!

Me and my wife stayed here for 2 nights in September 2013 and absolutely loved it. We stayed in their beach front villa and would highly recommend it. Services, ameneties, rooms are 5 star quality. This resort is built like a rural coomunity in the middle of a forest setting which is great if you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of Patong beach. The only reason I am not giving this resort a 5-star is due to the mosquitoes and bugs, which there were plenty of during our stay. The resort does provide mosquito repellent lotion and electronic devices which are effective if you do not step out after sunset. That being said the views and the tranquility of this place are truly worth experiencing. Though keep in mind this tranquility comes at a cost of being 30 mins away from the happening Patong beach area.

Room Tip: Beach front villas are totally worth the extra buck

We spent our honeymoon at the Vijitt Resort Phuket. From the minute we checked-in everything had been so perfect during our 7 days stay. Apart from the usual Thai hospitality, the staff at the Vijitt was nothing but helpful and pleasing. We prefered the beachfront villas and stay at Villa 7 which had one of the best location at the Resort.

The hotel location is somewhat secluded and central. You can be at the famous Patong beach in 30 minutes by taxi for 600Baht. If you also prefer enjoying the quiet, the Vijitt is just for you..

The beach was tidal but didn't cause any disappointment for us since we had the best marine walk when the sea level was low, we were able to enjoy the beach till late afternoon and the pool at the beachfront was so amazing that we even didn't want to leave it for a minute.

The food at the Savoury restaurant was good and the staff was great but I need to say that it is a little bit overpriced. For a decent dinner you need to sacrifice around $100. Just to remind there is not much alternative around so you are somewhat dependent if you are not spending a night out in Patong.

For geeks who are bound to be online, the rooms have free wifi but in order to have good signal you can consider bringing a wi-fi router / access point with you.

In general I would say the hotel deserves 5 star. If you prefer a quiet and chilling time during your stay in Phuket the Vijitt would be a fit for you.

Dear baybarsorsek,

Good to hear that you were happy with our service while staying at the Vijitt Resort Phuket.

As the beach is tidal therefore the benefit for these are; no any motor engine of water-sport around, no any massage on the beach, no peddlers and we also provide the activity with "marine walk" to show our customer with lives on the bay.

Regarding the food at the restaurant, there are varieties for Thai and Western and prices are varies. We will look into the prices and adjustment if necessary

Your comment for staff will be passed to the staff board and this will make them feel happy.

Once again thank you for your choosing us for your honeymoon trip and look forward to welcoming you back again for your anniversary soon.
