Phuket is Thailand’s largest island. Also known as the “Pearl of the Andaman”, it is shaped like an irregular pearl and has a well-deserved reputation as one of the world’s most popular tropical beach resort destinations. The Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort is one of the leading hotels in Phuket and was opened just three years ago. We spent two nights there at the end of our Thailand trip and it was the perfect place to end an amazing holiday.

The location

The palatial resort is perched on a lush, verdant hillside on Phuket’s Millionaire Mile strip, in the Kamala Beach area.  Fringed by palm trees, it has panoramic views of the Andaman Sea, which lies just across the road, and extends into the horizon. It is far enough from the crowds yet near enough to explore Phuket’s attractions. A complimentary shuttle service will take you to the Kamala’s main swimming beach and shopping area, a short drive away.

The resort consists of clusters of rooms built on the steep hillside. Walking at this gradient is only for the very fit and we were happy to be transported by the ubiquitous golf carts.

The lobby

Hotel lobbies aren’t normally something to shout about but the Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort has a huge, opulent open-air lobby with marble floors, wooden pillars and pockets of sunken lounges, decorated in bright splashes of colour. On arrival at the hotel, we were welcomed here by traditionally-attired staff, with a delicious herbal drink and a cool refresher towel. It is a great place to relax in at any other time too and there are always newspapers available to read. The lobby overlooks a spacious green lawn used for functions, as well as the pool area.

The swimming pool

The resort has one of the largest infinity-edge pools in Phuket and the largest swimming pool I have ever seen. At 72 metres long and 25 metres wide, it is larger than an Olympics swimming pool and seems to flow into the sea. An open pool bar and restaurant extends into the pool.  Luxurious, canopied daybeds and sunbeds flank the pool and provide relief from the hot sun. There is a children’s pool and a wading pool for the very little ones. One could easily spend all day just lazing at the pool. Just looking at it made me feel relaxed.

Day Beds

The suites

There are several different types of spacious, stylish rooms and suites with modern conveniences like Nespresso machines, mini-bars, 40-inch flat-screen TVs and Bluetooth audio devices. We stayed in a family suite with two bedrooms, a huge bathroom, a dressing room and a lounge area. Floor to ceiling sliding glass doors allowed plenty of light in.

We also had a huge balcony with a daybed, and outdoor dining facilities. This was our favourite place to lie back and enjoy the panoramic sea views.

Dried ginger candy and a welcome bowl of fruit awaited us in our room. It included Thai fruits like chikoos (also known as sapodillas) and rose apples among others we were more familiar with.

The bathroom

The bathroom was huge and had a spacious walk-in shower, a separate bath tub, and double vanity stations. In addition to the usual complimentary amenities, we were also provided with mouthwash and a convenience kit with complimentary toothbrushes, razors, sewing kits etc.  Ample comfortable bathrobes and slippers were available.

The breakfast

We enjoyed a huge breakfast buffet spread at The Pool House restaurant every day. The wide variety of delicacies to choose from included pineapple fried rice, scrumptious banana pies, freshly-baked strawberry pizza, bread pudding and smoothies.

The service

The ever-friendly staff will greet you several times a day with a smiling Sawasdee Ka, make pleasant conversation with you – if you are inclined to do so, and go out of their way to accommodate your special requirements.

Camp Hyatt

Children will love spending time at Camp Hyatt.  It is aimed at kids from four to twelve years old and there are supervised fun activities to keep them entertained all day long.

The activities

Activities such as cooking classes, boxing classes, and yoga are offered, some at an additional charge. The resort also has an exclusive spa and a fitness centre with on-site personal trainers.

Other facilities

Guests staying in the Club Rooms have exclusive access to the Regency Club Lounge which includes access to the Regency Club infinity pool overlooking the entire bay, personalised check-in and check-out facilities; complimentary breakfast, and drinks throughout the day.  Some of the Club Rooms also have private dipping pools and whirlpool tubs.

The Sunset Grill Restaurant is a fine dining restaurant occupying the top spot of the resort. It offers stunning views of the sun setting over the Andaman Sea through its full-length glass windows.

In Conclusion,

The resort was so beautiful and inviting that we found ourselves torn between wanting to relax there and enjoying its facilities or venturing out and exploring Phuket. Fortunately , since our stay here was towards the end of our stay in Phuket, we managed to spend some time enjoying the hotel. My husband and I loved it, and so did the kids. In summary, this is a great all-in-one resort for a Phuket vacation, with or without the family.

I can see why you wouldn’t have wanted to leave, the whole property is gorgeous! I could set myself up in that infinity pool and stay for a week lol! I love that the bathroom in the room looks straight out into the room, makes it feel a lot more spacious with this kind of open floor plan 🙂

Phuket’s Millionaire Mile strip makes it sound luxurious without having even been yet :D!!

Having just stayed in a couple of resorts in Vietnam, I am a convert to this type of hotel resort. This one looks fantastic and as always, they have terrific pools. I am always wanting to go back to Thailand so this place would be perfect.
