Amazing hotel complex on the beach
Posted Jan 24, 2015
Marriott's Phuket Beach Club is such a lovely place to stay. We stayed for 9 nights in January 2015, and it was a great relaxing getaway. The hotel sits on Mai Khao beach, where there are several stalls where you can get a massage, manicure or have your hair braided. All of the staff are extremely friendly and welcoming, always saying hello when you walk past, and are willing to help with anything. There are 3 huge swimming pools on the complex, which are very clean and cater for all ages (there is an adult's pool, kids pool and the 3rd pool has a swim up bar). All of the pools look out over the beach which is lovely.
As for the rooms, we had a 2 bedroom apartment which was extremely clean, tidy, and overall a really nice room to stay in. The master bedroom has a king bed and the bathroom has a huge bathtub with a large shower. The slightly smaller bedroom has two double beds with an ensuite. The beds are very comfortable as is the furniture in the rest of the apartment. There is also a useful kitchenette, dining/living area and a balcony.
The hotel offers so many things to do: water sports such as sailing and snorkelling (free kayaking and paddle boarding), Thai language lessons, and even have a go at trapeze. As for the restaurants, some are too expensive but the food is good, and the service is excellent. There is a huge variety from Thai to Italian to Japanese.
This hotel is a brilliant place to stay and we highly recommend it to anyone.
