I did a ton of research on hotels before coming to Thailand. I had a hard time picking one hotel that had everything that we wanted so we ended up splitting our time between The Surin and the Rosewood. Post trip, I woudl say that I enjoyed my time at the Surin much better and would rate the Surin one of the top resorts we have ever stayed at in our travels.

Pool/Beach: If you are someone that actually likes to get in the ocean, the beach at the Surin was one of the best beaches out of any resort that I have ever been to. It was private, barely any reef and the afternoon waves were perfect for my 6 year old to master his boogie boarding skills. The pool was also great, the water was warm and the views of both the ocean and hotel were spectacular.

Rooms: The cottages had so much charm. Situated in the jungle facing the ocean, it was so unique. Our cottage was close to the hotel and pool so it was convenient. That being said, I could see how it could be quite strenuous if you were situated higher up or further out.

Food: The breakfast was amazing with a huge variety of food. We never got bored and I think I ate my body weight in mangoes.

Location: One of the main reasons that I couldn't settle on one resort was because I wanted to stay in one that was somewhat close to patong beach so that we had the option to go out a couple nights. The Surin didn't end up being that far away, about 20 minutes in an uber to north patong.

The SPA was awesome and I had a great massage by Poppy. That being said, it is American prices so if you are looking for something more reasonable, there are multiple massage places outside the front gates.

Another reason that we split up stay across two hotels was because the Surin didn't have a kids club and my wife and I wanted to have some time to ourselves on occasion. Thankfully the hotel had a baby sitter / nanny that worked for them for 15+ years that they recommended named Sorn and she was amazing. On the first day we got her, we could tell that she was great with kids and our kids were immidietly comfortable with her. We ended up gettiner her for 2-3 hours every day. Whether it was to get a massage, get dinner or go out for a couple drinks. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for some downtime while staying at the Surin.

Thank you Surn and staff for your hospitality. We will be back again soon.

The Surin is a great 5 Star hotel. It provides everything you would expect in terms of quality and service in an amazing location.
The rooms are individual, set on the hillside. We took a deluxe beach view, which gave an amazing vista and truly amazing sunsets. Worth that extra (I don't believe the beach front rooms are worth an even greater premium). There is a draw back of giving so many rooms such a view and that is they are housed on a hillside, which means there are many many steps. However, we soon got used to these and in truth after eating far too much and relaxing most of the day on the beautiful beach a little exercise was actually welcome! Something to be aware of though for those less steady on the pins (we are late 50's, not greatly fit but didn't cause us any issue).
There are rooms further up the hill, which would require a bit of a hike to get down to the beach, though a buggy service would address that.
The beach is true golden sand and the sea is crystal clear. This is what makes the Surin so special compared to other 5 star hotels in the area.
Not cheap and drinks are, in terms of Thailand, crazily expensive, but a nice touch is the hotel allows local beach vendors (husband and wife) to sell drinks on the beach during the day. 80bht for a beer and 50bht for a can of Sprite served in an ice bucket linked to friendly and efficient service was really great. A cocktail from them watching the sunset was a daily occurrence.
Restaurants were good quality and recommended, as too are several restaurants just outside the entrance to the hotel (and very much cheaper)
We would return to this hotel when in Phuket

Dear JeffandSue2020, Thank you for the time you have taken to share this detailed and amazing review. It is a delight to learn that you had such an exceptional experience and your kind comments have been shared with our 240+ associates. The beach adjacent to our resort is indeed a bliss and I can't recall any comparable stretch of sand on the island of Phuket. Many of our well-traveled guests compare the white power sand beach with the Maldives or Seychelles. We look forward to welcome you back during your next travels to Thailand. Please feel free to reach out to me directly for possible assistance with your arrangements. Kind regards, Manuel Mandaglio Resort Manager The Surin Phuket

The Surin provides high quality accommodation in the cottages set on a hillside overlooking a quiet beach. There are a large number of steps down to the beach and pool (103 from our Superior Cottage, which was situated at Lobby level), however a buggy service is provided from the lobby down to the beach, should this be required. The buggy service is also available at any time of day to transport guests to and from the main road, where there are several good restaurants, interesting shops and a 'Family Mart'.

All of the staff within the hotel are lovely, they are friendly, helpful and always provide a high standard of service. The breakfast buffet is second to none, offering everything that anyone could possibly want, in fact it is the best that we have had anywhere. The complimentary afternoon tea served by the pool 3 times a week is very popular and offers a differing array of tasty treats.

The Surin is one of the best hotels that we have stayed in and seems to be popular with families.

We had a fabulous experience at the Surin. the service and level is deluxe five star. the luxurious and large villas overlook the ocean and you can hear the lapping of the waves and sounds of nature from the room and lovely balcony. There’s nothing too much to ask of the staff. Every single person here bends over backwards to help and room service, buckets of ice, extra down pillows etc come within minutes of requesting.

The villas have his and hers walk in wardrobes with ample storage and double vanity sinks.
The rooms provide his and hers hats and flip flops, beach bag, incense burners and l things like aromatherapy mosquito spray. They have thought of every little detail!

The Surin is run shipshape by Frank the French general manager who previously worked at Ampanpuri Phuket. It is no wonder The Surin operates at this top luxury hotel standard.

The breakfast is an outstanding feast with everything from freshly cooked noodles to dim sum and they can actually cook a perfect French omelette (wet inside) which is unusual in Thailand.

The beach (Pansea Beach) is deep and clean and perfect - it’s has one of the best beaches and there is direct access from the villas and pool.

I highly recommend this place to anybody who wants to visit Phuket. I think it is more luxurious than Banyan Tree Phuket where I stayed at previously. The Surin is also part of the Aman group and it is situated right next to Amanpuri

We loved how the open architecture of the hotel and how it complimented and conserved the nature around it. We also enjoyed the beach and pool areas. It was priceless to be able to sleep to sound of the wind through the coconut tree leaves and the waves.

We particularly loved that our beach room had two sinks, so two people could get ready at the same time. The rooms were overall spacious and beautiful

Dear Narcis, Thank you for the wonderful feedback, much appreciated. We are delighted to learn that you had an outstanding experience at our "little paradise" and your kind comments have been shared with the entire team. Pansea beach adjacent to our hotel is one of Phuket's most stunning beaches. Furthermore, while all beaches in Thailand are public, our guests pretty much enjoy this exclusive beach to themselves due to its limited access.

This was by far the best hotel I have stayed at in Phuket and Thailand in all my years of travelling there and Nokkie who greeted us on arrival with her colleague Aoy were jewels in the crown of the Surin. Kind, thoughtful, efficient and really brilliant at giving recommendations - followed by Dada and her staff at breakfast which was one of the best I have ever had. Clean, beautifully presented and delicious selection of foods with an a la carte breakfast included in the price. Prosecco and mandarin juice to start the day. The cottages were fantastically appointed and the beach was quiet and virtually private for us - afternoon tea included on certain days, beach moonlit bar area - all in all an outstanding holiday made the best by Nokkie and her team. I cannot fault it. Will so go back.

We booked to stay at The Surin as under the Thai pass scheme we needed a hotel for 7 nights in Phuket. Previous Phuket experience did not encourage us to return to the island but we needed this stay for our onward journey!
How pleasantly surprised were we. What a beautiful hotel on the most amazing beach with wonderful staff and food. We chose a deluxe room with a sea view it was nicely furnished and a reasonable size with a lovely bathroom. The sea view was lovely with two steps on an outside wooden platform.
The buffet breakfasts were wonderful with lots of variety and choices. Lovely sun beds on the beach or by the pool with shade for the beach ones from parasols or the trees. The pool attendants and beach water sports staff were absolutely lovely and could not do enough for us. Pansea beach is slightly unusual for Thailand as the beach is completely private only guests from the Surin or the Amanpuri frequent it with a couple of intrepid explorers who make it over the headland. There are some local Thai people who come over the headland every day to sell cold drinks and provide massage services. The hotel staff work very harmoniously with these people the do not pester you but are there if you wish to use there services.
We loved the beach it was so pretty beautifully clear water (quite a few jellyfish at times which the hotel staff assured us were harmless and indeed In Our week there we were not aware of anyone being stung )
We had lots of fun body surfing on the waves which came up as the tide came in.
The gym was spotless and well equipped.
Whilst we were there there were two restaurants opened the one but the pool and the other one on the first floor. Much preferred the ambience of the one by the pool, due to the lower occupancy the menu was the same but there was quite a wide choice and all of the food was excellent !
Valentines buffet was absolutely lovely and the staff were quite rightly proud of the effort they had made to make the evening so special. One thing I would say that we thought it was most odd to have a wedding on the beach with there own band and a singer by the pool kind of in competition with each other not 200 yards away from each other !
Also it is not a place for people with mobility issues … our room was quite a way from the bar … we counted 171 stairs up and down back to our room. We were surprised that some sort of lift was not available even from reception/breakfast restaurant to the beach.

Ah. I paid more than 700 US$ per night for the cheapest room in this hotel, but the room don’t have bath, only shower! I stay in more than 300 days per year in different hotels around the world, this is absolutely unique experience I have learnt.
If I don’t make mistakes, the hotel only have 102 rooms, before I make booking, there are some comments said this hotel have private beach, however, even it is a small hotel with “private beach” I just cannot find a beach chair at the beach because all of them occupied. Yes, you can find some free ones without sunlight. I don’t know how people feels if they escaped cold Europe for hot Christmas and new year.
There are a lots of properties people can choose as same standard as this hot in Phuket, but the service is much better and the price is much reasonable than this one.
I will continue stay this hotel another 3 days, if their can pay attention to the clients needs, I will update another comment for everyone who is going to come here.
I try to talk to manager about what I am concerned, but just nobody shown. Well done!

Dear Mr. Jiang Li, Thank you for your visit. We regret to learn of the subpar impressions of your stay. Please accept my sincerest apologies that your experience did not live up to your expectations. Nevertheless it was a pleasure to meet you in person and to receive the chance to understand your concerns better. Please allow me to express my point of view. Your accommodation was booked through your regular agent which apparently handles 300 hotel nights for you a year. I personally feel it is not reasonable to blame the hotel for the fact that your agent, which must clearly know your preferences, booked you a room type without a bathtub. On the first day of your stay you arrived the beach at about 15:00 hrs. The hotel was running at capacity and you requested some specific sunbeds which were already occupied by other guests. Our Sport & Recreation Manager proposed you alternative sunbeds in three different other locations which however, unfortunately, were not to your liking. Lastly I have taken the liberty to read some of your other reviews... I am all in for constructive feedback and with no doubt there is always room for improvement. However, with all respect, the way you judge business, hotels and airlines is far from objective or justified. Wishing you a great 2020 ahead. Sincerely, Manuel Mandaglio Resort Manager The Surin Phuket

With so many luxury resorts in Phuket, it was quite difficult to narrow down a suitable place to stay but I'm really happy that I ended up choosing The Surin. It's in a decent location around 20-25mins drive from the airport, 15-20mins drive to Patong and about 35mins drive to Phuket Town. For me that was quite a well placed resort to all the key areas. You could potentially stay further South if you wanted to be closer to the busier areas/beaches/sights but you're only talking about a 10-15min difference.

The Surin benefits from having it's own private stretch of beach which, although shared with The Amanpuri resort next door, still seems like a secluded beach given the amount of space there is. There is plenty of room along the beach to relax and not have to worry about your belongings. The boat house has complimentary water sports equipment (I'd definitely recommend the body boards as the waves were incredible and not too deep!).

The swimming pool was very quiet and had a great view of the beach. Breakfast was good quality and can't really complain. I have had nicer breakfasts in other resorts around the world where there has been a bit more selection of food, however the breakfast here was still very good. The rooms were located either beach side or in the "jungle" among all the trees and greenery. Personally I love this kind of setting/atmosphere especially in these countries as it is very fitting. The rooms are very clean and spacious with a relatively simple but stylish finish. The colours and decor reminds me of a beach house look.

Amenities were as you'd expect from a luxury resort with mosquito repellent inside the room as well. Complimentary hat and bag to use during your stay was very useful for bringing to the beach. Activities/facilities at the resort were good including a decent sized poolside/beach side gym, water sports boat house, spa and classes such as rooftop yoga. There were other activities too which catered for kids as well as things like cocktail making etc. I had a private muay thai lesson beach side which was a great experience!

The staff were as friendly and helpful as ever. It's something I'd always expect from luxury resorts but I do find that in the Far East it always feels extra special and you are always made to feel very welcome. A lot of the members of staff remember who you are and what your plans are too so it is a very personalised experience. Reception were able to recommend things for us to do in and out of the resort as well as book tours/excursions/car hire for us too.

Overall, it was a really enjoyable stay at The Surin and extremely good value for money. I don't normally like to go back to the same hotel/resort but this is a strong contender should I visit Phuket again one day.

My wife and I stayed as a belated honeymoon and we were not disappointed. We were given a free upgrade and had a beach side suite! Our cottage was metres away from the turquoise sea and sumptuous beach. The balcony was huge and because of our proximity to the beach/ sea, we spent most of our time on our balcony sunbathing and relaxing to the melody of the sea.

The cottage itself is very modern, with the interior stylishly designed, both with a relaxing sofa/ work station, huge bed with a separated dressing area, bath, his and hers sink and shower/ toilet. They provide everything you can think of, from a handy beach bag, beach hats, right down to fine detail toiletries.

They turn your room twice a day, and the staff are almost stealth like in that we never saw them, just our rooms had been cleaned. Staff were attentive, very friendly, very helpful with all our requests and blended in with the whole sleekness of the hotel.

The main pool is the centre point of the hotel, with a bar and restaurant/ breakfast dining surrounding it at different terracing levels. The whole design of the hotel was very airy, traditional, and very natural. As its located on a private beach and secluded, they provide little golf buggies that will ship you in and out onto the main road, saving your legs from the hills.

Food was great and there are lots of restaurants surrounding the hotel, but for the best restaurants you'll need to travel away from the area.

So happy with the whole experience we will definitely be returning, this time with our little girl so she too can enjoy a wonderful hotel experience.

We had room 302 which is right on the beach. I didn’t see a pool view room to compare but being able to walk 10m to a beach sun bed or a bit further to the sea was very convenient. The room was large and had its own deck areas to sit on.
