The Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa is a 180-room and villa resort located on the gleaming sands of Mai Khao Beach, less than 20 kilometers from Phuket International Airport.
From the moment we set foot in the bright, open-air lobby, we were welcomed by some of the friendliest staff we came across in a long time; they explained to us the various activities offered by the resort before escorting us to our room.
We opened the door to our Deluxe King bedroom, a spacious 46 sqm. with a balcony offering views on the immaculate garden. We truly enjoyed the choice of colors in the room, which provided us with a sense of well-being and relaxation; a perfect home away from home. The bathroom was separated by a large glass with retractable shades, allowing you to watch the TV while enjoying a well-deserved bath. We found all the amenities you could expect from a high-end resort, and the housekeeping team did an amazing job at ensuring all the little details were on point, from the turn-down service to the assortment of coconut chips we received upon arrival.
We enjoyed our dinner at the Takieng restaurant, a specialty Thai restaurant which is conveniently located right in front of the beach, and next to the large swimming pool. The food was a true delicacy, and each of the dishes served packed a punch of flavors, making clever use of the spices and ingredients sourced locally.
While we thought it would be difficult to top such an amazing dinner experience, we were pleasantly surprised the next day when we visited the Loca Vore restaurant for breakfast. We can see that the management of the Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa takes the motto “the breakfast is the most important meal of the day” very seriously: a large selection of bread and jams, oatmeals, cold cuts and cheese from various parts of the world, as well as some hot cuisine from Thailand and some Western classics.
By noon, it was time to say goodbye, but we left with a truly magical experience and memories that will last for a long time!
