After one year, again on Phuket, Trisara last time....good old Amanpuri, back there after 20 years. The resort doesn't really show it's age, is very well maintained and spotless. Of course rooms aren't what you would expect today in this category but still charming and comfortable. Rooms are all identical no matter the category! Do on all accounts avoid the simple "pavilions"! they are too close to the road traversing the resort, which actually adds quite a bit of traffic noise....
Service very friendly, sometimes a bit disorganized, but no complaints there. The two restaurants are good but not more! Generally this shows that you don't go to Aman for the food (even in Venice). This should be improved...Trisara much better here....
A major gripe: the wine list is impossible. We know wine is prohibitively expensive in Thailand for tax reasons. But at the price one can expect an updated list. Notably the simple whites were old vintages hardly drinkable with pleasure. This must be corrected!
The location of the resort and beach is superb, also the beach service...this beats Trisara
All in all the major draw is the beach and situation, we spent a thoroughly relaxing six days and would certainly recommend it to people looking for quiet ...A good hotel even after 25 years, many repeaters
