In the tourist-filled, cheesy parts of Phuket, it’s all bucket cocktails and sex shows that obscure the fact that the island is one of Thailand’s most beautiful. The Rosewood has eschewed the cheap thrills, though, by ensconcing itself on the southwest coast in a calm bay backed by forest, accessed by a winding coast road. The resort itself is a haven of fabulous swimming pools and welcoming villas and pavilions, all of which are spacious and clearly designed for long, leisurely stays when unpacking and spreading out is indicated. Each has its own pool, perfect for under-the-stars nighttime dips, but you’ll probably spend less time in them than you expect: the resort has enough activities on offer that you can fill your days with something new every hour. Before a spa treatment, visit the herb garden to choose ingredients for a custom body wrap or scrub, go snorkeling in Andaman Bay, charter a luxury yacht and lounge on hidden beaches, visit one of three golf courses, go sea kayaking….and the list goes on.
In the Area
You can explore the island via helicopter or boat, or even hike through the jungle on foot, and Rosewood can arrange all of these for you. It’s a quick drive into the historic Old Town if you’re in the mood for eclectic nightlife options or a new dining experience. On Sundays, head to Lard Yai walking street for an outdoor market of handicrafts and street food. Ban Boran Textiles is a must-stop for shoppers; it sells incredible textiles in silks and cottons, including embroidered decorative fabrics and clothes made by Thailand’s hill tribes. Make a reservation at Acqua for a special night: one of the island’s best restaurants, it has a seafood-heavy menu that benefits from a strong French and Italian influence. Exploring the island’s temples shouldn’t be neglected: both Wat Chalong and Wat Suwan Khuha, with their rich decorations and Buddhist relics, are fascinating, and the latter also boasts a lively monkey population.
How to Get There
Nice stay for chill out. we spent all the time in resort. I like the breakfast. also we can do many daily activities from the gym. the staff are very nice and friendly. this time are not too many guest, so we really enjoy the time in the resort, feeling privacy.
그동안 많은 리조트 들을 다녀왔지만 이번 여행은 정말 최악이었습니다
1.제대로된 하우스키핑 서비스를 받을수 없었습니다
오전10시 30분쯤 객실을 떠나 1시반이 넘는 시간까지 객식을 비워놨었는데
그 누구도 와서 청소를 해놓지 않았습니다. 그리고 한다는 말이 2시에 와서 청소를 해주겠다고 한다.
2. 그들이 청소를 하는동안 수영장에서 시간을 보낼수 있었지만 가지 못했던 이유는
그곳에서 점심을 먹는동안 RAT!!!!!!!!!!!! 쥐가 BAR 뒤에서 뛰어다니고 있는 모습을 본후 정말 끔찍하다고 생각했습니다. 그래서 점심을 마치지 못하고 객식로 돌아가야 했습니다
더 놀라웠던것은 직원들의 태도였습니다
너무 아무렇지도 않아 하는 모습.....입으로는 "Im so sorry" 라고 하지만 쥐가 나왔다는 것에 대해 전혀 놀라는 모습을 보이지 않았습니다. 그들은 바에 쥐가 출몰하는것을 자주 보았나봅니다.
더 기분이 나빳던것은 그 일이 있고나서 그들이 보낸 FRUIT BOWL 이었습니다
미안해서 과일을 그릇에 담아 보냈다면 적어도 미안하다는 글귀가 적힌 카드라도 보냈었어야죠.
제 경험에 로즈우드 직원들은 IM SO SORRY 면 모든것이 해결되는줄 아는것같습니다
좋은 리뷰가 많이 있지만 제 경험으론 최악,그동안 다녀왔던 리조트 들에 비해 정말 최악의 경험 이었습니다.
IM SO SORRY BUT THIS IS NOT RECOMMANDABLE PLACE
Very nice stay here, rooms were amazing with a private pool and an outdoor bath. Minibar free access and daily fruit made it even better. The food at restaurants were all excellent, including breakfast, all premium ingredients. Resort has amazing pools of different depths and shaded areas making it easy for our kids. The beach was not as special however, a bit rocky and lots of people from other resort but Rosewood property more than makes up for it. The resort also offers beach activities like kayak. The kids club is very nice, better than most other resorts. And the staff is very friendly and attentive.
The welcome gift and daily treats for kids was a very nice touch!

I and my colleague have a great chance to enjoy the typical Thai food at Rosewood Phuket. Not only the delicious real original Thai food taste but also all wonderful atmosphere surrounding; the warm greeting and excellent taking care from their professional staff, organic vegetables planted in their own garden are the highlight of the cool feeling, especially, the ancient many hundred year big tree here.
Whenever you come to Phuket, Ta Khai Thai restaurant at Rosewood Phuket, is my personal recommended dinning place which you shouldn't miss.
I came here with my family and stayed a total of 8 nights and I must say that this was by far the best family trip we've had. The rooms are spacious and beautifully laid out. It is extremely private, you can't see others who are beside you nor can people see you from the outside. There are many activities available every day, which my family and I enjoyed. The staff are extremely kind and tentative, amazing service. There is a buggy service to navigate throughout the resort, Kham and the rest of the team are very nice. Last but not least, as a foodie I was beyond impressed. The breakfast was half buffet and half a la carte, which is genius. Every single ingredient used was of high quality. Furthermore, the Thai restaurant was the best Thai food I've had in Thailand other than Raya Restaurant in Phuket. I would definitely recommend this resort and plan to go back soon. The Rosewood never disappoints big thanks to Jodi for orgainising!
