Fabulous!

Fantastic holiday getaway. Staff were delightful. The hotel is gorgeous.

The only thing I can find fault in is probably the poolside/room service food is not as good as you would expect.

The on demand hotel shuttle was a fantastic touch to get into Kamala (and back) any time you like!

Definitely recommend.

Amazing 5 *****

What a phenomenal experience, from the arrival through to departure the staff were incredible who go above & beyond what is required!
An exceptional 5 star resort with impeccable 5*customer service, these guys have got it right. There is a tremendous personal touch - you feel like you’re the only guests that matter! If your looking for serenity, luxury and 5 star service this is a remarkable outstanding memorable resort, highly recommended!
My only concern is...... how soon can we return?

Worth more than Once in a Lifetime experience!

Even though the resort looked amazing on the website and TA reviews, I was initially hesitant to book this due to the price being well over "my budget". My daughter and grandkids were keen on this as one of their friends had stayed here and raved about the resort. Between my wife and I, we just decided we would splurge and give our family a super holiday that they would remember forever!

My email to the General Manager, Daniel Meury, was enough to convey to him via telepathy, the price range I had in mind, and his team came back with an offer that it took nanoseconds for me to say OK and book this super deluxe 2 bedroom suite with a private pool. This got upgraded to a 3 bedroom, and on arrival, to a 4 bedroom oceanview pool suite! Almost 4,500 squarefeet of space with a large plunge pool. The look of wonderment on my grandkids faces, knowing that they each would get their own private bedroom was just tooooooo much!

We spent 4 nights at this resort with an interesting interaction with the GM Daniel. The crowing glory was when I asked my granddaughter to sign the Thai immigration departure form, she refused to sign it, saying I want to stay at The Andara forever!!! A profound endorsement from a 11 year old!

We left with a promise to Daniel that we would be back here, sooner rather than later. My son in law was on a business trip to the US, so he could not enjoy with us. Seeing the photos, am sure he would like to join us for our next holiday at The Andara.

We did not leave the resort, except for an early morning speedboat Sunrise day tour to the Phi Phi islands and others. The hotel was kind enough to pack breakfast for the kids even though the boat trip included breakfast. We enjoyed ALL the facilites and activities at The Andara. The Spa was used by all including the kids more than once. We ate all our meals there, some by the poolside and others at The Silk.

I have read about some complaining about the lack of English knowledge with the Andara staff. We never experience any of this during our stay. They all spoke good enough English to understand and be understood. The buggy service was excellent! The Concierge very helpful. Olga was helpful and helped us organise participation in various activities at the Gym. The main infinity swimming pool overlooking the Kamala bay was exceptional, as was the poolside food and drinks service! WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE ANDARA!!!

Amazing, as expected - can’t wait for my next trip!

Just came back from a second trip to this fabulous resort. The suites are amazing - privacy with enough space for everyone to feel relaxed. Loved the hospitality and attention, all within a spacious and well-appointed private suite.

The service was amazing, a buggy always available and trips to the beach easy to arrange. And my elderly mother always had a helping hand to ascend/descend steps.

One bit of feedback - the personal chef service should include more a more formal process for menu selection. Our party had many special dietary requirements (vegetarian, no spice, no tamarind, etc) and it would have been easier to communicate through a standardised form versus describing to a supervisor verbally.

The only other piece of feedback is that the internet connectivity was very spotty. For a property of this caliber, I would have expected lightning fast and always available internet.

In Love with Andara Resort
Reviewed 2 months ago

We stayed at this Resort visiting Phuket Thailand for the first time and we fell in love. This boutique hotel was a dream. Beautiful resort, landscaping included. It's small enough that you feel important and big enough that you don't feel like many people are there. Every staff member went over and above my expectations. The car service was impressive, took us wherever we wanted to go and always had cold towels & cold waters waiting for us when we got back in the vans (nice lux vans). We always felt safe knowing they were looking after us. We didn't go to the beach which was across the street so I can't speak to that. But we enjoyed the beautiful pool which was never packed. We had a 2 bedroom ocean view suite which was so big, we felt like we were at home. They had Andara bottles of insect spray in every bathroom which they replenish daily, so those were easy to take everywhere with you. I had a random request and before I knew it one of the staff members had gone into town and bought me what I needed. I wish there were more Andara Resorts around the world because I would be a loyal customer. If we ever come back we will of course stay here.
