We just wrapped up three nights at this resort and I can't say enough good things about it! We had last minute changes to our travel plans and decided to take off to Phuket to relax for a few days before heading home. We saw this resort online, but given our last minute change of plans, we flew to Phuket with no reservation and called Andaman from the airport. The staff was incredibly helpful from the start!
The setting can't be beat as the resort has it's own private stretch of beach hemmed in by rocky cliffs on each side. They have plenty of covered beach chairs for all the guests, so there was never a scramble in the morning to stake out a chair. They have free kayaks, boogie boards and snorkeling gear as well.
Because we arrived with no reservations, we did have to move rooms each night, but we were able to get the best available room each night including a pool villa and a deluxe seaview room. All the rooms were spacious with great views of the ocean and have cd/iPod players and refridgerators. We were very happy with every room and didn't mind moving around because the staff was so helpful during each move. In one room, we had a problem with some of the outlets not working, but within five minutes of my call, someone from maintenance was there to try to fix the problem. When it could not be resolved quickly, they sent someone immediately with a power strip that we could use with the working outlets so we had plenty of plugs for our charging needs.
We arrived on a Wednesday which is the night that they do a resort reception on the beach with free cocktails and appetizers. It was a great way to meet some of the other guests. Several of the staff members joined in the socializing as well. The food in all the restaurants was very good. They have a Thai restaurant as an option in the evening as well as a seafood bbq restaurant. Both were excellent. Breakfast was included and provided a variety of options from fruit to eggs to Thai curry. And, the salads at the beachside restaurant that we had for lunch each day were great.
The staff here was really outstanding! I was surprised to see a couple of reviews that said they did not have a good experience with the staff. We found everyone we came in contact with to be extremely friendly and accommodating. They were always smiling and asking if we needed anything. And, the manager, Khun Bom, was exceptionally helpful. Given that we showed up practically unannounced, it was a really pleasant surprise to find the manager going above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of.
I don't take the time to write reviews very often, but the Andaman White Beach definitely warranted the effort. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing, quiet place away from the typical Phuket crowds.
