I just spent ten days in Phuket. Five of these days I spent in a nice 5 star hideaway luxury resort on the East side of Phuket. This is the silent part of Phuket.
If you expect parties just outside the doorstep this place is defiantly the wrong place to stay. However if you want to relax a few days while enjoying top notch luxury for one third of the price as in Patong or Kata you should at least think about it.
I spend five days here because I suddenly got several translation jobs from the company I work for. I had to get away from the madness of Patong so I could focus and get stuff done. It’s not easy to get stuff done in Patong where there is no much distractions all over the place.
Serenity Resort Residences
Serenity Resort have several different types of rooms that cater to many types of guests.
- Serenity Room: 30 m/2. Chic but comfortable rooms which combine a fashionable contemporary design with exotic Thai touches. Modern conveniences including a flat panel TV, DVD player and sound system help you to relax in style.
- Serenity Suite: Spacious and luxurious, the Serenity Suites offer a mix of garden and sea views with a contemporary interior design. The Serenity Suites are more than a standard hotel room, with a modern style open plan bedroom, which links to a separate living area and European style kitchen with dining room table.
- Serenity Sea View Suite: The unique Seaview Suite located on the top floor of building B offers a stunning panoramic view of Chalong Bay from its balcony and rooftop lounge. The large balcony features an outdoor dining area and the great view can be enjoyed from the entire apartment by opening up the floor to ceiling sliding glass doors. The rooftop lounge, accessible through an exterior stairway on the balcony, has an even better view over the bay. A dining area, sun loungers, and even a private Jacuzzi, all make the rooftop lounge an unbeatable spot to enjoy the view.
I spent the five days here in the Serenity Suite. This room is really big even for a suite. The price was a comfortable 2500 baht now in the low season. The bed was amazing. I had some really good nights of sleep here to gather energy for my work. I also enjoyed the big sofa and TV later when I had visit.
Here are my pictures of the suite:
One of the days I stayed here I did take a taxi over to Kata beach to one of the beer bars there to pick up a girl that I met on Thai Cupid. This taxi ride take roughly 15 minutes and will set you back 500 baht each way. Taxi prices in Phuket are crazy compared to Bangkok or even Pattaya.
Is the hotel guestfriendly?
Every evening there are live music down by the pool where you can order food and drinks until midnight. I think the kitchen closes 22.00 tho.
The atmosphere down by the pool is really great with an epic view straight out in the sea.
