Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Sala Phuket was definitely one of our favourite hotels in Phuket. This splendid establishment is a true haven of peace, both in terms of its architectural qualities and in terms of the tranquillity it offers. It's the perfect love nest for couples, but the hotel also welcomes children, although there is no entertainment on offer. The standard rooms, called the Balcony Rooms, intentionally come in limited numbers. This is for good reason, as it would be a shame to come here without enjoying the superb villas with their private pools. The Sala Phuket opened in 2008 and has many successful years to look forward to!

    Location 5.46 /10

    The only neighbour of the Sala Phuket is the Renaissance hotel, with nothing else in the surrounding area. In the northern part of Phuket, the establishment is on the edge of the beautiful beach of Mai Khao. The crowded beaches, especially Patong beach, are far quite away: expect a 45-minute drive to get there, and the same to get to Phuket town. However, the airport is only 20 minutes away (10 mi) depending on traffic.

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    The Sala Phuket has 79 rooms, including 63 villas. These are divided into 7 categories, but the Balcony Rooms present the most marked difference, as they don't have their own private swimming pool. 16 rooms belong to this category, and they are all gathered in the same area, occupying two 1-storey buildings that face one another. They're nicely decorated, in dominant tones of white and beige. The bathroom opens onto the bedroom, which is equipped with a very comfortable bed. However, it'd be a pity not to opt for a villa! They're secluded, they have a private pool concealed in the garden and they boast an outdoor bathroom, with a double wash basin! The bathtub, shower and toilets are all separate. Inside, the rooms are decorated with the same care as the standard rooms. Their amenities are irreproachable: even room service is available 24 hours a day.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Behind a discrete wall, the Sala Phuket is like preciously preserved jewel. The first view you get of the hotel is of the large and shallow pond surrounded by flower beds that give the impression of a Zen garden. The reception counter, which looks more like a bar than it does a reception desk, is just opposite this area. Next to it are two lounges with modern furniture. The Sino-Portuguese architecture is very pleasant and blends in perfectly with the surrounding vegetation. From here you can proceed towards the hotel's main communal area, by the beach. The rectangular swimming pool varies in depth, and its dark bottom makes for a very elegant setting. Deckchairs with comfortable mattresses are laid out on the solarium terrace and the lawn. A second swimming pool is available but this one is long and narrow. Head back towards the reception area to find the Sala Spa. Hidden behind a thick and coarse wall, it houses 4 treatment rooms that open out onto the exterior, which are simply superb. The products used in the spa are by the spa Clarins and Pevonia brands.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The hotel's only restaurant, Sala Beach Restaurant, is open for all 3 meals of the day. It serves meals ŕ la carte, and offers Thai dishes and international cuisine. It also has a mouth-watering seafood selection. The room itself looks out towards the beach, and a large part of it is covered but it is nevertheless open on all sides. You may be irritated by the layout of the tables, but at least they're not too close to each other. As for the colour scheme, white is the dominant tone of the resort, standing out here against the grey woodwork... For drinks, the Sala Phuket has two bars: the Lobby Bar and the Beach Bar. And for love birds, room service is available all night long!

    Beach 8.70 /10

    Mai Khao beach is adjacent to Sirinath National Marine Park. Therefore, motorised water sports are forbidden in the area, which is a pity for adrenaline junkies, but an advantage for those who want some peace and quiet. Nevertheless, the hotel does have kayaks to offer. There are neither deckchairs, nor parasols available on the beach. These have instead been arranged on the hotel's lawn. Guests are free to bring along their own deckchair and put it on the beach. Mai Khao beach is a place of pure beauty: wide and nearly 5 mi long, it is totally deserted and offers a much nicer view than the crowded coast of Patong Beach. The sand is fine, the water is crystal clear, and the slope of the beach is perfect for bathing.

    To know

    It's essentially designed for couples, to whom we particularly recommend the villas. The latter include an outdoor bathroom that unfortunately doesn't allow for much privacy.

      Located bordering Laguna Beach, the Bangtao Beach Resort has been existing since 2003. Find out about the road before coming here, it is located on a small street, where you will not think you will find a hotel. The staff of this hotel is very friendly and smiley. This hotel suits people who are looking for simple but effective comfort.

      • Location 7.5

      The Kamala Beach is not a hotel for families, as it does not accept bookings for children under 15 years of age. So, it is usually friends and couples who tend to stay here. The situation is a little odd, since the hotel's identical twin, the Sunwing Resort, accepts children, and is only separated from the Kamala Beach by a row of bushes. We couldn't then see what the point was, since there were children just next door... Anyway, this hotel has the advantage of being located close to the beach of the same name, but the deckchairs are not included in the price. The Kamala Beach has no other facilities, not even a spa, which is, to our mind, a major asset for a seaside holiday nowadays. However, there is a small area in the garden, where massages are provided in the open air.

      Located near Karon beach, the Woraburi is a small comfortable town hotel with no facilities other than a pool and a restaurant. Nonetheless, it is still an ideal departure point for exploring the town on foot. There are lots of shops next to the hotel, but if shopping isn't your thing and you prefer to laze around on the beach, there is a public beach that you can go to but you will have to walk across the road to get to it, as is the case with all the beaches in Thailand. Moreover, there are no deck chairs or parasols set up for the hotel guests on the beach.

      Luxury, isolation, exclusivity: in an exceptional environment, the Chedi interprets a high standard partition which makes it one of the most beautiful hotels in Phuket. After the tidal wave that affected Phuket on 26th December 2004, the Chedi suffers minimum damages on a few bungalows and the beach restaurant, but the hotel works normally.

      It is difficult if not impossible not to be charmed by this calm and relaxing place. The Manathai is a superb boutique hotel, open since 2006. Its unique decoration is much more refined than in certain grand palaces. However, you do not come here for the organised activities, as there are not any. Nevertheless, couples will be delighted to stay there. A beautiful success!
