Dear verasuen,

Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback from your recent stay at SALA Phuket. We are so pleased you enjoyed your time with us and your villa upgrade!

We are always willing to assist guests with reasonable requests for early check ins and late check outs, as long as our occupancy allows - so it was great to read that this was a benefit for you.

We will continue to work on our breakfast improvements, so hopefully next time you will enjoy SALA just a little bit more!

Many thanks!

We have just spent a memorable two weeks at SALA Phuket resort and spa! From the moment we arrived we were met with friendly, smiling can do staff where nothing was ever too much trouble.

The location was perfect for us situated on Mai Khao beach away from all the hustle and bustle of Phuket, although there are a few shops and bars at Turtle Village a short bike ride or free bus ride away.

We stayed in a SALA pool villa which was perfect for a relaxing break, we had to force ourselves to leave our room

The breakfasts were extremely generous, beautifully prepared and everything on hand you could wish for, on chatting with chef Tony I mentioned I normally have avocado on toast, well every morning thereafter one was available, we found Tony to be really knowledgeable and enthusiastic and together with Basil, Leo and the rest of the amazing team helped to make our stay even more enjoyable.

The only suggestion we could make is that some areas of the hotel would benefit from a refurb although this in no way detracted from our stay.

Thanks again, hope to see you again soon

Dear Sharon B,

It was fantastic to read that you had such a great stay in your SALA Pool Villa recently. With the southern parts of the island becoming ever more congested, we feel Mai Khao is an excellent option for guests wanting to get away from it all!

Since your visit, a variation of 'Avocado on Toast' will soon become a regular feature on our breakfast menu, so thanks for the suggestion!

We do appreciate that some areas are in need of some attention, and we are now working closely with our maintenance team to remedy these issues as soon as possible.

Thanks again for your feedback, and we hope to see you again at SALA Phuket!

Many thanks!

We (couple from Switzerland, 27 & 29 years old) have spent two weeks at SALA Phuket Resort & Spa in one of the pool villas. It was the perfect holiday to relax. The hotel is located in Mai Khao Beach, a quiet area with Phuket‘s longest beach (10 km). As a big part of the area belongs to the Sirinat National Park there are only few hotels and shops and other tourists. Close to the hotel there is a small shopping mall called „Turtle Village“ with restaurants, boutiques and a well equipped supermarket. There is a shuttle from the hotel to the mall everyday free of charge. If you want to visit the island of Phuket the hotel offers you several pre-organized tours, also there is an opportunity to design your own private tour or to take a taxi to discover the island on your own. Taxi prices are quite low comparing to taxi prices in Europe. The hotel is quiet and has a stylish and modern architecture with asian influences. The food (asian as well as western food) in the hotel is excellent and there is a possibility to order food & beverages 24/7. The hotel staff is extraordinary friendly and is eager to fulfill all the wishes their hotel guests have. The villas are spacious, stylish and clean with a closed bedroom, an openair bathroom and living room, a private pool and sunbeds. Guests get to choose their personal scent of soap and bodylotion as well as their favourite time of room cleaning at the beginning of their stay. The hotel also offers a bar at the beach and a lobby bar, a restaurant, two public pools, direct access to the private beach, 24/7 room service as well as laundry services and spa facilities. All in all SALA Phuket Resort & Spa is the ideal hotel for people who want to relaxe and calm down, the privacy of the pool and garden villas is perfect for couples. We can totally recommend this hotel to everyone who wants to spend a quiet and luxurious holiday in Phuket.

Dear 735maryo,

Thank you for your detailed review of SALA Phuket and your recent stay. "The perfect place to relax" is exactly how we hope our guests feel about the resort.

Turtle Village is a very convenient option for guests who are looking for additional dining in the area, so we are glad you found some time to visit. Next year they will be expanding to include some more dining and retail options, so we are looking forward to that also.

We are also now working on some additions to our menu options. This past week we introduced an exciting new 'Steak and Seafood Sunday Grill' which our guests loved, and today we have been auditioning some new live entertainment.

Hopefully we can welcome you back to SALA in the near future to experience all of our new offerings.

Many thanks!

We have visited Sala Phuket four times, this time returning for our honeymoon. Sala provides a unique experience, exceptional staff, beautiful location, space for family or privacy for couples. The food is excellent, in fact a clear stand out when comparing to other hotels I have been to around the world. We enjoyed exceptional International and Thai dishes. Do not miss cocktails as the sun drifts slowly down. We are already planning our next visit!

SALA Phuket Resort & Spa, Turtle Village, Temples & Beautiful Beaches!

The one thing that I would do over when arriving in Phuket is to dress lighter! No jeans, heavy coat or sweater.  Coming from the Pacific Northwest, out of habit, I was too layered.  Phuket has so much to offer, warm climate, beautiful beaches, and fantastic outdoor activities!  We chose to spend our days lounging by the pool, morning runs on the beach, day trips to temples and visiting Turtle Village (only a five-minute shuttle drive from the resort).  

For our first few days, we stayed at SALA Phuket, a spa resort located a few kilometers from the ocean.  This place was beautiful!  No wonder why couples decide to come and elope here.  My favorite part of our hotel suite was our outdoor tub, shower, and restroom.  I know, this sounds super weird coming from the states.  But, with the warm climate year round, it makes complete sense.  Near the tub, there was a cabana area with a daybed.  I would spend my mornings taking a hot bubble bath, followed by a few hours reading on the daybed.

During breakfast and dinner, we would walk down towards the beach where the restaurant was.  They provided daily fresh squeezed juices, open veggie station and a hot bar where the chef would cook your breakfast food of choice.  From the fantastic work out facility, spa, and restaurant, I couldn't be more pleased with this place.  Whether you're planning your wedding, honeymoon, or a weekend getaway with close friends, this site is a must-see on your bucket list. I would recommend low season, to take advantage of lower rates.  We went in late November and the weather was perfect!

Make sure to take the daily shuttle down to Turtle Village.  Here, you'll find cute little shops, places to eat, even an Irish restaurant and a grocery store.  Make sure to spend a day visiting various temples.  The hotel can help set this up for you upon arrival. Happy Travelling @travelbug206.

Dear Elizabeth A,

WOW! Thank you for such a glowing review of SALA Phuket, we were so pleased to read you had such an amazing experience.

In particular, it was wonderful to read that you so enjoyed our outdoor bathrooms, we know they are not for everyone, but we agree they can be a very invigorating experience.

It's great that you also found some time to discovery Turtle Village, it's an excellent addition to the Mai Khao area with a variety of dining and shopping options. We look forward to next April when Phase 2 will be opening and offering even more choices for guests in the area.

We hope you find some time to visit us again in the future.

Many thanks!
