Aleenta Resort and Spa5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Private and exclusive with extra little touches! I am always on the lookout for getaways where I can just relax, read, swim, eat and pamper myself at the spa and I am quite particular about large crowds during these solo breaks so when some friends shared their pictures of their holiday at Aleenta, I was tempted to give it a try. Firstly, I was completely torn between the pool villas and the pool suites and I wrote in to the hotel to ask for a recommendation. Upon finding out I was doing a solo vacation, they recommended the Ocean View Loft which I thought looked quite simple and I wasn't really keen on a shared pool but I went along and booked it. Ying from Front office greeted me when I arrived and it almost felt like a homecoming though it was my first visit to Aleenta! The resort is based only about 20 minutes away from the airport and is on the mainland so if you are looking at heading to Phuket town, it will take almost an hour from the resort. But my aim was not to hit the nightlife that the island is famous for so this was perfect. I had had a crazy month at work and really needed a good massage and though I arrived late around 4pm, I enquired if I could make a spa booking upon check in and Ying managed to slot me in immediately and it was heavenly! Let's just say that I tried almost everything - from facials and body scrubs to body wraps, Thai massages, hot compress massages, aromatherapy massages and ... well.. practically as much as I could try within my five day break! They have awesome packages which include all-in F&B per day with 2 to 3 hours of spa treatments for THB5000 and this means you can order absolutely anything on the menu from any of their restaurants! There is another package which includes alcoholic beverages for an additional THB2000 if I remember correctly. Issa who takes care of the spa became a really firm friend and my favourite therapist Nui even braided my hair for me during facials! If you are looking to be spoilt silly, this is the place to be and you need to know these ladies! Pakbung showed me to my room and I was still feeling like I should have booked the pool suite instead until I walked through the doors of my loft. It was crazy beautiful! The high ceiling of the loft meant I had undisputed and unobstructed views of the pool (shared with another 7 or 8 other loft rooms but it still felt completely private- just put down the blinds if you need complete privacy at night) and the gorgeous sea and sky and plenty of natural light! Waking up to this view everyday was just absolutely breathtaking! So there were no regrets at all! What I loved most about Aleenta though, were the little extra touches. The turn down service each night came with a little glass jar of treats and a quaint postcard-sized bedtime story based on Thai folklore complete with watercolour illustrations done by students and regular folk! It was really adorable and when I asked my housekeeping attendant if I could have one more of the cards to keep, he came back with 2 of each story for me! Thank you so very much! And a special commendation for Ying of the F&B team, she had noticed I realĺlly loved the lychees at my first morning breakfast and every time as I left after breakfast, she would bring me a handful and press them to my palms and bid me a good day and give me a beautiful smile! She also packed my mango and sticky rice and had it sent to my room when I wanted to order it but wasn't sure if I could eat it right after a really yummy dinner which included my very first taste of crunchy fried insects! The verdict: passed with flying colours! Close your eyes and just savour the taste! To be honest, I only had one meal out of the resort and there aren't many places nearby to eat at but if you like good food and are willing to have a mix of not just Thai but also western and asian fusion fare, everything is available at any of the two restaurants at Aleenta. I didn't try the F&B outlets at the resort's sister hotel, the Akyra, further down the road but all hotel guests were invited to a White party at the beachbar there and it had some pretty good vibes except the wind was super strong and I had more wind in my face than drink in my mouth! Breakfast at the Aleenta is a must though. I shamelessly admit I ordered two different styles of eggs every morning because I really wanted to try everything on the menu and I enjoyed every single dish! My favourite has to be the Japanese omelette! All in all, this trip sent me home well rested, spoiled crazy and donning a silly smile on my face! Thank you Michaela and team and if you can help me identify my housekeeping attendant for room 307, that would be fabulous! He is an absolute star!
My husband and I stayed at Aleenta for our honeymoon in June. We stayed in a Grand Deluxe Pool Villa. It was an absolute treat to have a private pool. We chose the resort because of its advertised ability to cater for a coeliac (gluten free). GF is marked on their menus. Unfortunately, this didn't end up being a sound choice, as the staff didn't seem to understand the requirement, even after being assured by the head chef that they had been trained in what GF was. Consequently, it became quite a hassle. We also experienced several meals that came out cold – or things were missing from the order, this was the case for both the standard meals and GF meals. It seemed to be a general theme of the holiday that things were never executed completely, in the end we had to laugh about it because of the frustration. Housekeeping continually removed towels that are in the rooms specifically for the pool/beach and didn't replace them (you're only given one towel for showering, so it's an issue when you're swimming all day or have hair you need to wash and dry) The pool having large amounts of dirt in it from the surrounding garden –should be serviced every few days for the comfort of guests during their stay. Pool also had missing tiles that left sharp and mouldy areas that you had to avoid. Ice was delivered to the room with mould and mosquitos in it (after having to call twice to get it) You have to call specifically to ask for the pool side lounge area to be set up (it's only 4 pillows). This should be done before a guest arrives as it's a given that in a private pool villa you will be using the lounge. The TV did not work most of the time, and when it did, only 2-3 channels would function. WIFI was patchy, and problematic. Bike helmets being stored separately to bikes, so you need to climb a large set of stairs to reception every time you would like to use a bike, in 30 degree weather, that's frustrating. These are things that sound trivial, but it's the kind of stuff you don't want to have to 'handle' or concern yourself with while on holiday. There is a restaurant called Co-Sea House, about a 3 min bike ride or 10 min walk from the is a great break from hotel food. They catered for GF, and the food was spectacular! The hotel certainly has the capacity to be a beautiful 5 star hotel, they just need to get everyone on the same page in regards to continuity and the standards of service that are expected by guests at a resort like Aleenta.
Hi .. can you give me information how long to take time from airport Phuket to aleenta resort and aleenta resort to patong beach and walking street .. and the resort have facility to pick up from airport .. thanks
Great design, there's indeed privacy for each villa. Tranquil, we almost had the beach to ourselves. Staff courteous and friendly always. Dining options were understandably limited, but we had delightful local Thai food at Co-sea, a short walk from Aleenta.
We stayed two nights at Aleenta, in the Ocean View Loft. The room itself was lovely, the only thing to be improved is to install a brighter and more spacious vanity top. The Bose dock speaker by the bed was a nice touch! Although it would be nicer if the speakers had bluetooth connectivity; not complaining at all though! The room has direct access to a pool shared with the other Ocean View Loft units. Do note that the “ocean view” is only a partial ocean view, and it looks over the top of the units nearer the beach. Breakfast is served at the restaurant right next to the beach with a lovely view. The food quality and selection wasn’t too bad - there is a small buffet and also a menu to order from. We also had several meals there. It is a luxury hotel so the restaurant food also carries a steep price tag but there were some dishes that we felt were very value - the pizzas and the fish and chips were really good! There isn’t much around the resort, but you could get the front desk to arrange for a taxi to take you to co-sea, a nearby restaurant serving local food that is very cheap and authentic. The ambience and structure of the place caters more towards couples rather than family with young kids. There are a lot of stairs within the resort and could be troublesome for young kids or the elderly. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much.
Spent 4 days at the pool suite and the management was very kind and out of goodwill to allow us early check-in and late check-out, was subjected to availability of course. The private beach area is very quiet and tranquil where we also had our private dinner at. Simply romantic and thanks to all the staff who made this trip possible and memorable; my partner had said YES! =) My thanks to Som (reservation), Fern (reception), and Tina (Edge staff).
It's suitable for beach lover. The resort is so peaceful with breathtaking views. Wonderful experience to stay at villa with beach view. The villa is complete & awesome. Overall its a great place for relaxing. We would definitely come again.
My husband and I had a weekend break at Aleenta. Loved every minute. Loved our own private pool. The food was amazing, loved everything we ordered. Happy hour on the beach with amazing sunsets. Can't wait to go back.
My family and I stayed at Aleenta from 7 to 10 June 2017. The resort is nice and quiet and a great place to be if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of hectic city life. We stayed in a 2-bedroom pool residence. The apartment was huge with a relatively big private pool. The 5 of us have lots of space to ourselves and my 3 kids even played hide-and-seek within our apartment. One thing we felt could be improved was the bed. it was too hard for our preference but not a big issue. Also the air-conditioning seemed a bit noisy and especially so at night when everything else is quiet, The breakfast at the Edge restaurant was a highlight of our stay. There is a good spread and variety (ala carte and buffet) of food choices. More importantly, the quality was good and the taste was yummilicious. The service staff at the Edge was attentive and responsive. The restaurant is right in front of the natai beach and the scenery was fantastic. We look forward to our breakfast every morning when we were there. The beach is another draw for our kids. It is generally clean and totally private. The red warning flag was up for the entire period of our stay but that did not stop our kids from playing with the sand, chasing and catching crabs and just enjoying the beach. One drawback of the resort is the location. It is ok if all you want to do is rest and relax in the resort. There is really nothing much to do in the surrounding vicinity and a trip to Patong / Phuket town will take > 1 hour by car. All in all, a nice and pleasant stay if location is not an big consideration.
A simple answer to my question Yes. I stayed in the Pool Villa for 7 days in May 2017. We had a long drive before we reached the hotel and what we saw came as a big disappointment. We had to climb a huge flight of stairs and we arrived at the smallest lobby we have ever seen. The blinds were down so we saw no view. Later on we realised that the lobby has the best view in the hotel. When we entered our pool villa things changed. What we saw was a huge pool surrounded by greenery. what we liked best was that this humongous space was all our, total privacy. Once again, the outside pool is what you are paying for, the inside closed surfaces are just there. The water in most pools feel that they have visited the Artic, cold. The water in our pool was lukewarm. You also have a smaller round tub with hot water near the pool. We could have upgraded to the pool villa with a sea view but we would have lost our privacy as people on the beach can see us as we can see them. Your mileage will vary. . We had breakfast and lunch and our evening snack at the Edge, a restaurant that sits on the beach. We had the best of both worlds, our own pool with lots of greenery and a great sea view at the edge. In the mornings and evening we would take 1 hour long walks on the beach. However we could walk for five days only because then the high tide came in. Chose your dates accordingly. We loved the food especially as my wife is veg and they had a veg menu also. There are no places to eat outside the hotel and in spite of that the food was reasonably priced. We also took the SPA buffet package for 2 hours each. Great experience, but expensive. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to make your holiday memorable. The staff at the Edge especially went beyond the call of duty especially at breakfast. The problem in Thailand is that never speak the Queens English, one or two words will suffice. We also had long walks outside the hotel where once again lots of greenery and a flat load with very little car traffic. The seven days passed by in a instant. This stay was one of our cheapest stays ever but by far the the best. After all, you view a stay depending upon how much you pay. Should you stay at the Aleenta, Yes, Should this be the first hotel you should stay in Phuket, Yes. Will I some day go back, Yes.
