The 180 cheery rooms and suites at the Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa offer all the usual luxury fixings (think fuzzy robes and separate marble bathtubs and showers), plus ample glass features to maximize the property’s postcard-worthy Mai Khao Beach locale. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide panoramas from every room, and interior glass walls help flood ensuite baths with natural light. The fully equipped fitness center is also a knockout with still more painted glass features framing state-of-the-art cardio equipment. Sneak in a workout, then unwind at the full-service spa or relax poolside with a cocktail from Sand Box Bar. Of the resort’s five restaurants, Loca Vore takes made-to-order dining to an entirely new level, with chefs offering a selection of the day’s fresh catch and preparing each dish to your taste.
In the Area
Mai Khao Beach is a stunner, but visiting a few more won’t hurt. Beach-hop from lively Patong to secluded Kamala, then head over to posh Surin—known as Millionaire’s Row, thanks to its lineup of mega mansions—for a taste of Phuket’s varied seaside offerings. Head to Yacht Haven Marina for unobstructed views of Phang Nga Bay, or Promthep Cape Viewpointfor a serious sunset perch. Don’t skip a trip to Thailand’s Phi Phi Islands for one of the country’s most notable photo-ops. Your concierge can recommend the best half- or full-day boating excursion including snorkeling stops for a peek beneath the surface.
How to Get There
From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with friendly smiles and shown to our rooms and treated like queens! The beach and pool are amazing. The food and service are second to none. The rooms are spacious with very nice, large bathrooms.
As a Platinum level Marriott member, I was contacted in advance by Adthapong V (AOM), Director of Beverage & Food. He had already arranged a meeting with Sam, the travel consultant, to set up everything we wanted to do while in Thailand. He immediately sent up some wine and a snack to our room. Every day, he seemed to know where we were and was always checking in to be sure things were going well.
We had breakfast included with our room. The breakfast buffet is a work of art! I have stayed in a lot of nice hotels, none have come close to comparing to the Phuket Renaissance. All of the dining venues are wonderful and the service is outstanding.
During our stay, they had a special Seafood Barbeque with Thai musicians and dancers. We had been out all day being tourists and just decided we might as well try it. WOW! Am I glad we decided to go. It was incredible! The food selection was endless. It started with a full salad bar, many grilled seafood choices, including lobster, prawns, fish, squid, everything. They also had grilled beef and pork loin. I didn't even see all of the soups and vegetables, there was so much. I definitely sampled multiple desserts, they were outstanding. We had a reserved table, very close to the entertainment. It was great music and dancing. The dancers did an elaborate preformance and then brought the crowd in to join them, it was so fun!
As a nice good-bye, AOM sent us this fabulous dessert tray the night before we left. He was off the last 2 days of our stay and it was a special treat and act of kindness. I really did not want to leave, I was sorry we couldn't stay longer.
My aunt and I came to Phuket for the first time and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at the Renaissance Mai Khao. Not only is it the best beach in Phuket and the hotel itself is beautiful, but the service truly elevates this place to another level. Special shoutout to R, Arno, Lai, and Darit for taking such good care of us. Going above and beyond every single day. Things like how they noticed redness in my skin and brought over fresh Aloe Vera, always kept us hydrated with ice cold water, or their genuine warm smiles made our stay feel extremely special. Everyone in the staff was extremely kind and helpful. Highly recommend this place and hope to come back.
Fabulous resort. Can’t say enough about the remarkable service we received here. Everyone was so pleasant and politely attentive. I must mention that Ploy and Bob at the front desk went above and beyond to take care of us , including rescuing my son from the nearby JW MArriott when his taxi driver delivered him to the wrong location, to taking extra care of laundry, to helping us navigate unusual ground logistics, and taking great pictures to remember this place. Wish I could recall more names to provide special recognition, yet everyone was great.
I’ve stayed at many a hotel during my travels, and the service here is unrivaled !
Unlike anything else in Phuket s patong . This hotel got the best service and retreat holiday u can get in here. Nice food and venue . everything got arranged in good way. Special thanks to the pool side staff “R” he helped me find the lost shirt and his team Arno Lai . Also Dee and Ton always making sure I got enough water during sunny day! And congratulations to my friends KiKi again ! happy sweet couples !
Stayed for two nights & totally enjoyed the view of beach pool combination. Best part was their services specially @R, Denis, Arno & Dee. They really take care of every small things you need. Wonder if I could have stayed longer.
