Aleenta Resort and Spa5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Aleenta is set on one of the most beautiful beaches in Phuket. My family and I have visited Phuket over 10 times and this beach was hands down our favorite. Calm waves, super fine soft sand, and PERFECT view of the sunset everyday. The rooms were very clean and the service all around the resort was phenomenal.
We loved this resort because it was quiet, peaceful, beautiful and the service was excellent. The rooms were gorgeous (we had a one bedroom loft with a shared front pool). The beach empty and clean. Staff and restaurants fabulous. Phuket is a dirty, busy, unattractive city, and we were looking for a getaway beach resort and we found it at the Aleenta. It is not for people who want to go, go, go into town, where the action is, etc. Our son and his friend did take cabs into more touristy areas at night and they did fine and enjoyed themselves and we also made a boat day trip to the many islands but what's best about the Aleenta is being at the Aleenta.
The hotel is located on a stunning, 2.5 mile beach. The other properties on the beach are either high end villas or boutique hotels like Aleenta so it’s extremely peaceful - the loudest noise was the crashing waves which on some days were enormous and great fun. Very comfortable sun loungers, large bean bags, plenty of umbrellas on the beach. Complimentary water was constantly brought around by the beach staff and lunch/snacks available throughout the day to order. The main pool is approximately 20m long and 1.5m deep so ideal for ‘proper’ swimming if you want. It has large, double sun beds sets in the water poolside which were extremely comfortable. The pool is next to the Edge restaurant and the beach. The hotel is about 30 minutes north of the airport and is in a secluded area so if you’re after night life, lots of restaurants, water sports then this isn’t the resort for you! We stayed in a 2 bedroom pool residence which are located in a row behind the beach front villas. We were in a unit on the first floor so sea views and sunshine into our pool were fairly limited however we spent all our time on the beach. Unit was large, comfortable and well equipped - only minor quibble was total lack of drawers in the master bedroom however there was hanging space. BreKfast is served at the Edge restaurant. Quality and service were excellent. We ate lunch on the beach from the Edge lunch menu and again the sandwiches etc. were very good. For dinner the 2 options are Natai (Thai) or The Edge - both were excellent. We had room service a couple of times and it was very efficient - the staff came ahead to lay the table etc.. In the evenings the restaurants had citronella insect repellent available which was very effective. On our final night we booked the beach BBQ as we were celebrating a birthday in the family - expensive (£100/per head) however delicious and beautifully cooked. The menu was adapted for us due to nut allergies as well. The menus are coded for nut allergies however some aren’t always accurate so always double check before ordering. On one night Natai recoooked and modified a dish for us as the original was served with nuts, fortunately the nuts were obvious! We didn’t use the Gym or Spa however the gym and studio were very well equipped, air conditioned etc. There is a high end boutique shop on site with swimwear, sun tan lotion and local gifts etc. We booked 2 excursions - one to the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary which has opened in the last 12 months. Highly recommend as the ethical way to see elephants in Phuket - it’s a sanctuary for injured/mistreated elephants. The hotel booked the trip although I had to specifically request this tour. We booked a private boat trip via V-Marine whom were excellent - significantly cheaper than options offered by the concierge. Excellent stay overall. Minor quibbles in despite having a nut and coconut allergy noted on arrival the information was not passed to anyone - I would have expected the information to be recorded so every time we had a dining reservation the staff would be aware; this was not the case so I’m not sure why on check in the hotel ask for allergy information!! A couple of nights our bathrooms towels hadn’t been replaced so we just used beach towels - I’m sure if we’d called to front desk, we’d have had new towels immediately.
We stayed in a private pool villa which is located on the other side of street to the main group of buildings. The villa is highly private and very spacious with lots of windows or glass walls. Sunshine lit up the room in the day and brighten up our minds. It has been a pleasure, relaxing stay there and would definitely visit again. Breakfast with lots of choices but it could take some time to serve at busier hours, coffee are great.
We stayed in a 3-bedroom beachfront villa with a pool as we attended a wedding. Having been to Phuket on numerous occasions, this hotel did not disappoint. The staff simply could not do enough for the couple getting married, it was amazing. The villa was clean and very spacious. We frequented both restaurants daily and the food was top quality. Breakfast was sumptuous with a fantastic variety. In true Thai style, the staff went above and beyond – they certainly made our holiday a very memorable occasion and we thank them for it. We attended the spa and it was of a very high standard. The view from our villa was stunning and it was great listening to the waves. A truly memorable time! We liked the fact that the resort was away from the busyness of Phuket town.
An absolutely PHENOMENAL stay! My first time ever traveling alone, even so far from home (New York). This place was everything and more for me. From beginning to end they were kind, professional & accomodating! They picked me up from the airport, name on the Resort name card, arranged all of my trips & excursions easily. I did Yoga on the beach which was peaceful and refreshing! On the first day arriving they allowed me to settle in & then delivered a cake to my room singing happy birthday, I was almost in tears! I visited Koh Phi Phi Islands and had amazing conversations with fellow tourists and the guides. I hope to return sometime in the bear future with family & friends. Loooovvveeee ALEENTA PHUKET! Thank you all!
We stayed at a 2 bedroom suite with a fabulous sea view for my anniversary, friendly staff and attentive housekeeping service. The beach is beautiful, my friends and I enjoyed every moment in the hotel although the location is a bit remote. One thing need to be commented is the shower is too weak. Overall is excellent.

A great getaway from the busy life of Hong Kong or like Patong. Just chill on a beautiful beach that's empty and own good enough size pool! Villa is at a good size and enough space to fit 8, great place to unwind
Great, great hotel! Extraordinary service - if two tourist per say would borrow the bikes from the hotel and get caught in a thunderstorm, they will come and get you. Great food - we were truly surprised by the very high quality meat that was served, the daily specials are recommended. Great activities - from private MuayThai training with the extremely gifted Koko to rafting or night market in Phuket. Beautiful hotel - start every day with breakfast by the ocean and end it by watching the sunset over the open ocean with a cocktail in hand. Architecturally it was really cool, with many levels and oceanview from all of them. Great rooms. We stayed for 15 nights and it was perfection and awesome. Can't recommend this hotel more strongly. Sure, for being in Thailand it's a bit expensive, but for the quality we received its worth every penny. Come here, you won't regret it!
4 years ago here, my wife and I still dating as bf and gf. Though it was during renovation at the time, but Staff Team was very pleasant and illustrated me how 5-stars Service-minded were, Breakfast was superb and awesome, Aleenta Phuket Resort was our hidden gem and really one of the best resorts in Thailand. Now it is nearly our 2-years wedding anniversary, we had been trying to find a perfect weekend here again. We knew that Rosewood Phuket had just recently opened but we aimed to come back here at Aleenta Phuket. On Friday, Nov 10th, we flew from Bangkok and arrived Phuket at 4pm then drove from airport to the Hotel and arrived at around 5.30pm. Yes we were quite exhausted. As soon as we arrived, we walked upstairs to see the Front Office in order to check in. I was thinking to myself the Staff would ask and grant me if my wife and I would be tired? Needed Restroom? Smile at least? Hell, No! There were about 4 people sitting at the Front Office looking at me, no smile, no asking, then turned their faces into monitors! Only one of them asking me “Can I see your ID and Credit Card? Both of you please?” Then another lady in the team just walked and serve us the welcome drink robotically and walked away. That same lady continued “As I saw your booking, you have not booked any Breakfast with us here. Would you like to book now? It’s 800 Baht/person/day. You staying with us for 2 days. So it’s 3,200 Baht in total. Please sign it here and we’ll charge it when you check out!” Is this really 5-stars really? You don’t even care how tired we are? At least freaking give us time to breathe? Or a bit of time for restroom? Later, she tried to give us a tour for the Resort but she was very weak. She always walked and paused with no reason. Whatever the questions my wife and I asked her, she always gave us puzzled and with doubted facial expression, which to us was very rude! Her name is Miss Lek. So we finally went in our room preparing everything and get ready for our dinner. We came back to the Front Office. No, again! There were 3 Staff sitting and looked at me and then just continued with their work! No asking. No anything. So I said I needed my car for dinner. One of them just went up and walked out to get my car. At that time the Management Team I believe came out of Office and asking me if we needed anything. So I replied that we just waiting to get our car ready. That time when I looked at the Staff at Front Office, she gave me a big smile!?! To me this is really RUDE and FAKED! UNPROFESSIONAL and CHEAP! That Management team was walking down so I ran to one of them and told him about what’s going on. I believe his name is Daniel. I feel I had enough for that day so my wife and I went out for dinner expecting there’d be some changes or improvements. When we were back, we did not feel any changes that much so we tried not to spend time that much at the Hotel and waited to check out on Sunday, Nov 12th. Frankly speaking, if I knew our hidden gem is going to be like this, I would never ever spend even a damn 1 Baht here at Aleenta Phuket. Property has been worn out but that was not the case that much, comparing to Worst Of the Worst Staff and Low IQ and EQ in Service Mind. Staff here are not 5-stars at all and very UNPROFESSIONAL! It is hard to find a place to be your hidden gem BUT IT IS HARDER TO MAKE IT A NASTY ONE WHEN YOU THINK YOUR HIDDEN GEM IS A PARADISE!
