We would highly recommend the Twinpalms Phuket for various reasons, including its architecture, its high-quality services, its friendly staff and its comfortable facilities, among many others. Admittedly, you will need to cross the road to get to the beach, but the hotel itself more than compensates for this inconvenience. The Twinpalms is an upmarket establishment aimed more at couples than families with little ones since there are no facilities here for younger guests (although there are 24 guest rooms with adjoining doors). Irrespective of this, it is certainly a worthy member of the "Small Luxury Hotels of the World" group!

    Location 4.14 /10

    The hotel is built facing Surin Beach, on the west coast of Phuket, around a 20-minute drive from Patong. Phuket Town, on the east coast, is just over 14 mi away whilst the airport lies 12.5 mi to the north, with a transfer time of around half an hour, depending on the traffic.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    Although the Twinpalms has only 97 guest rooms, they still come in no fewer than 12 different categories, from the Deluxe to the Penthouse. The rooms are located in a series of one-storey buildings known as 'chalets' surrounding the hotel's swimming pool. This being the case, each has a nice view of the gardens to be enjoyed from its own private terrace or large furnished balcony (although none of the rooms have a sea view). Just like the rest of the hotel, the Deluxe rooms are elegant and contemporary. The king-size bed dominates the centre of the room offering a level of comfort that makes waking up extremely difficult. The dominant colours are black and white, with some brief touches of colour here and there. The bathroom, meanwhile, opens into the bedroom area and is surrounded by picture windows, so there's plenty of natural light here. Fear not, though, as these are sheltered from prying eyes by means of a fence. You'll find a double washbasin facing a nice big wardrobe, whilst the toilet and the shower opposite are separated from the rest of the room by a glass door. The place is meticulously cleaned every day and you'll be looked after right up until bedtime, with an attentive turn-down service leaving a little something on your pillow... Room service is not available 24 hours a day but the mini-bar is well-stocked and tea and coffee-making facilities are also provided.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Designed by Martin Palleros, a renowned architect in Asia Pacific, the Twinpalms Phuket really is an extraordinary hotel, not only in terms of its elegant architecture but also due to its contemporary decor which pays incredible attention to detail. Having opened in 2004, the hotel boasts an airy, high-ceilinged lobby and various comfortable lounge areas, all surrounded by a large pool and with a dark floor that reflects the decor and the surrounding lighting. Furthermore, you're always guaranteed a smile at the reception desk, which is open 24 hours a day. A few steps lead down from the lobby to the outdoor living area where you'll find a long, rectangular swimming pool surrounded by generously-spaced deckchairs and parasols tucked away in private little corners You certainly won't feel like this place is overcrowded. There are even large day beds for couples and a few deckchairs arranged actually in the pool itself, all set amid beautiful lush green gardens making for peaceful surroundings perfect for relaxation.
    The hotel boasts a spa equipped with a beauty salon and nine rooms where various treatments are offered. Everything here is geared up to ensure perfect relaxation of both body and mind. As is the case with most hotels in Phuket, the spa's signature is a combination of two treatments: a massage involving strategic pressure points and a herb compress, and a Swedish massage using a relaxing oil. Those who are oversensitive to pain may find the experience a little arduous at times, but you're guaranteed a good night's sleep and recovery after this one!

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    The Twinpalms has two restaurants. The first, the Oriental Spoon, opens for breakfast and dinner and provides a contemporary setting which charms visitors with its inside-outside concept. Breakfast consists of a comprehensive American-style buffet of everything from cereals to homemade pastries, not forgetting pressed fruit juices and a variety of hot dishes. Dinner, meanwhile, is served à la carte and consists of a wide variety of Thai dishes. The Phad Thai is excellent and not too spicy, unlike the vast majority of the dishes on the menu. One original feature of the restaurant is that it offers a tasting session every evening whereby guests can sample coloured rices believed to have a beneficial effect on cholesterol, the skin, the eyes and even the hair. Each rice is a different colour but they're all pretty similar in terms of flavour. A special mention goes to the mango-fried dessert rice, which is definitely not to be missed! If you fancy a change of scenery, head for the beach at lunchtime or in the evening where the Catch Beach Club is open late into the night. The trendy modern surroundings make this the place to be of an evening, particularly between 10:00pm and 11:00pm when the drinks are cheaper and even free in some cases.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    You really couldn't call Surin Beach deserted; indeed, it's more likely to be the opposite, but it is nevertheless a little less crowded than Patong Beach. The hotel stands exactly 175m from Surin Beach, just across the coast road and through a large wooded area. The Twinpalms provides deckchairs and parasols for its guests, all arranged a reasonable distance from each other. The sand here is fine, although it can be difficult to see it in parts, and the colour and temperature of the sea couldn't be more inviting! The beach is lined entirely with restaurants and little massage huts.

    To know

    There are a selection of shops and businesses, including a tailor and various massage lounges, in the immediate vicinity of the Twinpalms. The nearby Surin Beach can get very busy at times, but water sports enthusiasts will be in their element here (bear in mind, though, that the water sports centres on the beach do not belong to the hotel). The hotel organises various excursions for its guests, including a full-day boat trip to Khai Nok Island, where the activities on offer include snorkelling.
    Should you happen to fall in love with any of the decorative pieces dotted around the hotel, you might be interested to know that they are all available in the shop. This goes so far as to include the beds, the pillows and even the bathtub!
    Wi-Fi internet access is free throughout the hotel, including in the guest rooms. If you don't have your own computer with you, there are three you can use at the business centre.
    The Twinpalms stands alongside the Manathai Resort and the Courtyard Marriott Phuket at Surin Beach.

      • Location 6.91

      The Best Western Phuket Ocean Resort is a decidedly family-oriented establishment, but that doesn't mean you won't find couples holidaying here too; it all depends on the time of year. The hotel is built in a step formation and although there is a lift, it's still not really suitable for those with reduced mobility. It can be a real struggle getting up to the higher rooms as well, which is a real shame, as the sea views from up here are spectacular. The facilities at the Best Western Phuket Ocean Resort are starting to show signs of wear and tear but are nevertheless well-maintained. On the downside, since the hotel is rather close to the road, the noise of traffic can easily be heard, particularly in the restaurant.

      • Location 5.48

      Opened in 2009, the Millennium is just another hotel in Phuket. It's not that its facilities aren't comfortable, but there's nothing distinguishing them from those of its Patong neighbours. In short, this hotel does not leave a lasting impression, at least not from the outside, and there are no added bonuses to which we would give particular mention. However, it does offer a good level of service and a well equipped spa. Few Europeans come to stay here, with Asians and Australians making up most of the clientele.

      Formerly known as the Sabana Resort, this small establishment was renamed the All Seasons Naiharn Phuket by the Accor group. Built in 2001, the hotel was severely damaged by the 2004 tsunami and was reopened under its new name in 2008 with a fresh face-lift and upgraded facilities - today it offers good value for your money.

      Just like its cousins the Kamala Beach and the Surin Beach, the Courtyard Phuket at Patong Beach aims to attract a family clientele with its mini-club, which happens to be as well-equipped as a fully functioning nursery school. This urban hotel also boasts a central location at the heart of Patong, just alongside the Hard Rock Café on the corner, although on the down-side, it isn't located on the seafront and its spa is something of nothing. We were told when we visited that this wasn't likely to change in the near future either, as there are so many places in the vicinity which are often less expensive.

      The Radisson Plaza Phuket is a fantastic hotel that opened in 2009. Things that stand out at this establishment are the high-quality infrastructures, friendly and attentive staff and very comfortable rooms. It's the ideal place for relaxing holidays in an idyllic setting. It attracts families and couples alike. The clientele comes from Europe and Asia, but also Russia. However, it is quite far from the island's main attractions. Furthermore, if you want to enjoy a swim at the beach, you must find out about the tide first.

      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!
