“Fantastic resort with amazing view”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

I stayed for three nights in a superior room and I was very satisfied with my stay.

The rooms and service are adequate, not extraordinary. The bathroom was a little dated, with the water temperature sometimes changing slightly without warning.

However all that aside, the best things about this resort are the balcony with the seaview, the breakfasts, and the facilities/views from all around the hotel.

Firstly, the balcony was a good size, furnished with comfortable cushioned couches and chairs, and a table. It was great to come back to the hotel and relax on the balcony with the amazing view of the beach and the sea, listening to the relaxing sound of the waves below.

The private beach at the front of the hotel was good. When the tide was out you could watch the crabs on the sand.

The breakfast was one of the best buffet breakfasts I've had in any hotel, and I've stayed in quite a few! There was an amazing selection of food from all around the world, and they even had exotic things like Scottish eggs, as well as the normal Asian and Western fare. The food was great, and the restaurant in which breakfast was served had beautiful sea views. We did not eat in the hotel restaurants apart from at breakfast.

The two pools looked absolutely gorgeous, and they also had sea views. I'm not normally one to lounge by the pool, but in this resort I would have gladly done that.

The bar was also great, you could sit in deck chairs drinking while looking at the sea view.

The hotel is spread out over a large area, but parking is available on the far end. Our room was located on the end furthest from the lobby, but it was not inconvenient for us as we rented a scooter and parked it in the car park outside our block. I can see it would be a problem to have to walk far to the lobby if you did not have a scooter.

A negative of this hotel was that free wi-fi was only available in the lobby, after having to get a password from the reception staff. The lobby itself was incredibly hot and stuffy, with no airconditioning, so it was not possible to spend a lot of time there on the internet.

Overall, I would say that the positives were so amazing that they outweighed the negatives, and I would definitely stay here again.

My husband and spent 7 nights here. Every thing about the place was fabulous- the room was pleasant, facilities great, lots fo food/drinking locations within the facility. It is so close to the main part of Phuket (5-10 min easy walk downhill)yet you feel sheltered from it all within the resort. The staff were all pleasant and helpful. I can't speak highly enough about this resort- it was a wonderful experience!

My only comment was that our 'king size bed' was actaully two singles pushed together on a large base (which is in my expeeince not uncommon in large resorts/hotels), and were made up as two seperate beds. We chose not to complain/speak to staff about this as in the scheme of things it wasn't a major concern but for those who might be more picky than myself I would maybe check when making your reservation what the bed make up is,.

Excellent location, service and staff. Couldn't fault it. Views stunning, lovely balcony with settee and comfy chair. Bed very comfortable. Plenty of hanging space.

Laundry and maid service excellent.

Spa to die for - stunning setting and service and treatments. Also provide mini massages next to pool.

As mentioned before there are a lot of steps but no problem for us.

Bathroom a bit dated but clean and adequate - shower in bath.

Pool is much larger than looks in photos.

Airport a bit chaotic but hotel car transfer was faultless even provided refreshing hand towel and water.

If you've not been to Phuket before you will really appreciate the location just a few minutes away from hustle and bustle of town. It is very relaxing.

Room Tip: Believe we had superior room as had bath. You get a bigger balcony with this. Also some comfy chai...

I stayed at the Amari for 2 days at the end of a 10 day Phuket holiday, our time was spent around the pool area for both days, the hotel is outstanding in location, the views, the restaurants and the staff. We stayed in a deluxe room which was on the ground floor next to the beach and near the largest swimming pool, outstanding views of Patong Beach and local area. Keep in mind that some of the rooms are a small walk from the reception; Tuk Tuk would drive around to those areas. Ate breakfast, lunch’s and dinner at the hotel, truly outstanding.

I highly recommend this hotel

It was our Honeymoon and after a lot of research we selected Amari Coral beach as the place to stay. It was one of the best decisions of our lives. The hotel is fantastic, beautiful, amazing, awesome service, neat and clean. Due to its location it has its private access area to the patong beach which is used only by the hotel guests. Swimming pools (2) are amazing. Breakfast is delicious will lots of vegetarian varieties as well. We stayed there from 1st to 5th Feb 2012, in the Deluxe Room on the 2nd floor (7224). The view was amazing, a dream come true. We had an unobstructed view of the sea and the beach was just about 50 meters from our place. The service quality right from the welcome drink, room service, spa was absolutely fabulous. It is a perfect destination for couples who want to have a dream honeymoon and are planning to include Phuket in their trip. Rest of the hotels in Phuket although they say are on the beach are actually near to a public beach area. We had a memorable time, we are definitely looking forward to visit again soon and will be staying in Amari again for sure.

Room Tip: Please choose rooms on the 2nd floor. All rooms are sea facing. Deluxe rooms are the best. Please in...
