We stayed at room 304, the deluxe villa. Wish we had the villa next door or a floor above as right over our pool ledge, there were some vegetation that attracted many insects. I had to keep the balcony doors shut. When in the pool, i had to stay watchful for hornets and wasps and an occasional bee. The vegetation appears to be home to beetles about the half a finger in length, and tend to fly pretty blindly. Other than that, it was perfect! No seriously, once you got over the fact that you had to share your villa with some bugs, the villa was really pretty awesome. The view was amazing, the pool was amazing. We stayed in the villa most of the time and only went out for ice cream. In-room service was also good. Food was good though more expensive than if you were to walk out to the streets to find food. About 10-15 mins walk to the beach. 5 mins walk to two-chefs, an amazing restaurant you must try. The spa service is in-room which was another awesome plus point for this villa. It wasn't too expensive as there was a 1 for 1 massage if you request for it before 1pm. The spa is from patong, the therapist travel to the villa to do the massage. They were alright, could apply more pressure. Enjoyed my stay, and would come back again! Staff are all friendly, and smiley.
Me and husband stayed at Honeymoon Suite and had a definitely unforgettable time and memory. Everything about this villa was just perfect including the helpful and friendly staff. Having told the hotel that it was my husband's birthday n they arranged surprise cake which we definitely appreciated. The view was just stunning and magnificent with direct ocean view and it was like a dream come true! We basically just stayed at the Villa whole day without going out and which was not even necessary. We will definitely come back and recommend our friends but in fact a lot of friends are already asking about the name of this villa when they saw our pics online. Cant love this villa more and breakfast was the best for my stay in Phuket so far.
We stayed at the Impiana Private Villas Kata Noi for the last part of our honeymoon in Thailand. We stayed there for two nights. The wait was worth it! Our Villa was beautiful and overlooking the water! There is nothing bad I can say about the room. It was so big and beautiful! Windows on every corner.The bed was massive and so comfortable - I never wanted to leave! Our private pool was a definite plus - and one of the reasons we chose to stay there. The only negative thing I can say was that we only had 1 good day there with sunshine the other two days were raining! But that has nothing to do with the resort, you can't control the weather. As soon as we got there, we were greeted and accompanied to our room. After settling in for a bit, we headed for an early dinner at their restaurant and was served by Fern. We absolutely loved her. Her english was awesome, she answered any questions or concerns we had, and her service and professionalism was top notch! She also helped us on our check out day and she was awesome. Aside from that, the Villas are very private and there are only a total of 11-12 villas at this resort - so very private and secluded! It was a short walk to Kata Beach and Kata Noi Beach and close walk to restaurants, and shops. We loved that we could order breakfast to our room which was included in the price. The food was amazing! On the day of checkout, our flight was not until 3am so they let us keep our luggage there while we went into town, and let us use one of the unused villas to get ready while we waited for our airport transfer. that was very nice of them. I could go on and on about our experience but there is really not much to say except that it was an amazing end to a wonderful honeymoon. I am so glad we stayed here and recommend any honeymooners or couples to stay here if they are ever in the area!
For our once in a lifetime event, we visited Phuket twice, went to 14 different wedding venues and met up with 2 wedding planners to see their working styles. At the end, we chose Impiana Kata Noi (without any wedding planner). I would say I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was on my wedding day. It was really a wonderful experience to host our wedding there! *The reason why we chose Impiana Kata Noi We were looking for a just about right size private venue with sea view, and a lawn for ceremony and reception, which can host around 60-70 guests. We also preferred a resort with proximity to downtown for the convenience of our guests. Having been to so many different resorts in Phuket, all resorts got their own charms and flaws. The best thing we liked about Impiana is its exclusivity. It is conveniently located near the Kata downtown area, however, once you enter the villa, it feels like you are in a very private and relaxed world. Our guests can easily access the eating and shopping area, but once they return to the resort, they can enjoy some quiet and individual time. At the night before our wedding day, we organized a welcome cocktail session in a beach club nearby. Our guests can actually go there on foot. Since there are only 11 villas in Impiana, we booked out the whole resorts so all the guests staying in the villas at that 2 nights are all our families, relatives and friends. This way, we don’t have to worry about transport arrangements, and the guests could enjoy themselves without the worry to disturb other guests. Of course, we are greatly attracted by the sea view (the view from the infinity pool is just amazing!!) and the luxurious rooms, but to be honest, the main reason we chose Impiana was because of the villa manager + wedding coordinator – Joy. She is such a lovely lady who is charismatic, friendly, and humorous. The first time we met her during our site visit, we already felt like a friend of hers. We can feel how she would try her best to create a wonderful wedding for us, but not trying to maximize profits from us. That is the main reason we chose Impiana! *About the wedding package Impiana does offer wedding packages for guests, there are a lot of preset items like wedding arch, aisle marker, centerpiece etc., but you can also tell Joy what you want and she will try to see if she can arrange it for you (some at additional costs). The pricing of the wedding package is comparatively reasonable compared to other resorts, consider how a luxurious resort Impiana is. I didn’t use the preset items in the wedding package, but told Joy what I wanted by sending her some pictures. On our wedding day, the ceremony set up is very similar to the pictures I sent her. It feels like a dream to have all your ideal wedding setup in your own wedding!!! And the sea view just perfectly matches the whole ceremony. We feel so blessed about the nice weather on our wedding day. *Some sharing about holding our wedding in Impiana My husband and I stayed in the Honeymoon Suite, but I had my makeup and hairdo in the Royal Villa (where my bridesmaids stayed). I think it is the best place to do so, then you can march in the venue without being seen before the ceremony! It is a good place for taking pictures too as it is very spacious with the best view in the resort. The lawn in Impiana is actually not too big, it is good enough for ceremony, but I think it can at most host 8 round tables for dinner. We had 70 guests in total and we think it is just about right size. There was enough space for dance floor after putting 7 round tables on the lawn. We organized a welcome sparkler before the dinner starts. The moment we marched in with our friends & families holding the sparkler to welcome us, I felt like I was in a dream! All the fairy lights, wonderful table settings, our beautiful wedding arch and bridal table - everything was really like a dream. I wished the night wouldn’t end so quickly! We had Thai buffet style dinner, which is actually a bit spicy for some guests, but Impiana does offer western style buffet / set menus as well. They also offer beverage packages charged per person, but we decided to pay per consumption as not all of our guests drink wine. The wedding cake was also arranged by Joy and I was totally impressed by it!! To be honest, I didn’t have much expectations in the beginning as we didn’t outsource a professional cake shop for our wedding cake. But when the staff brought it out – WOW! It is just like the cake I saw from Pinterest! All my guests said the cake was delicious (the flavour was red velvet). Too bad that I didn’t get the chance to taste it as I was too busy running around!! Of course, I’ll be honest and tell you there were hiccups here and there during our wedding, mostly technical issues (e.g. the staff played the wrong music when I march in!! (LOL) and the projector didn’t work, so it took some time to fix it). But no weddings can be perfect! Now we looked back, it was actually quite funny and we will remember those funny moments forever! I can see Joy already tried her best to make sure everything goes smooth! When you are planning your wedding in Phuket, please do expect that they do take their time when replying your emails. If it is something urgent, you can always ring up the hotel. And, it is really hot in Phuket!!! I believe everyone was sweating like crazy during our ceremony. It is better to prepare some hand fans for your guests. But during the night, the temperature dropped and it felt ok. They also arranged 2 big fans for the guests as well. For the after party, we asked all our friends to get changed into swimsuits and we all jumped into the pool in the Royal Villa!! Surprisingly it can actually fits a lot of people!! All our guests told us they really had a good time - the view was amazing, the wedding set up was beautiful, the food was delicious, the after party was fun…that’s all that matters to us, guests being able to enjoy themselves! I am really glad that we chose Impiana Kata Noi, my wedding in Phuket is a really fond memory. I would especially love to thank Joy to make all these happen – we miss you already Joy!! It is so great to have you as our wedding planner!! We would definitely love to come visit you again!!
Me and my Husband had an unforgettable honeymoon time at Impiana villas..the villa is wonderful, the view and pool is spectacular..the employees are wonderfully welcoming..the food is so delicious... overall we had a wonderful time..As well a special Thanks to one of the most wonderful employees there Aliza, she was a great host. Thank you my dear friend
Actually I do not remember exactly when I have been to this hotel. But my memory of this hotel was perfect. A hotel I will definitely want to stay again. However, my partner has insisted to try out other classy resort, so till now we haven't gotten the chance to go for 2nd time. Anyway we stayed at the honeymoon suite which was so perfect I can't find any fault. Tastefully done up, clean, great sea view and great villa pool. You just feel good staying there. I wish I have a house like this. Breakfast was great just that variety was slightly limited. Overall, a hotel that I will definitely go to stay again and again.
Impiana private villa Spent our honeymoon there. Great place! Pros: Great view!!! We stayed at deluxe garden suite which has great view!! Private pool with big flamingo, good size for two people. I saw other room types which have bigger pools Great breakfast buffet. Beyond our expectation. They cook with details Great interior details. The suite looks modern Great luxury bathing gifts Giant bathroom with double sinks, jacuzzi, stand shower Great staff. They always friendly to be there and help (ie. bring luggage) It has nespresso machine! (My hubby loves it) Great location. The villa is right beside Kata Noi beach (5-10mins walk). Lots of restaurants/shops close by. (I had my first Thai massage there) Pros: Privacy. While I was swimming in my private pool I saw someone from other units (we were having eye contact, weird) It had lots privacy as he room is facing to the sea, but where's my full privacy tho?:( The entrance. It's downhill entrance. That means you have to lift your heavy luggage down to the main lobby (the staff will help you tho) The hotel is location on the hill (I believe that's why I will get the view). So be prepared to walk up and down hill lots of times Transportation: hotel taxi to Karon: 400 thb Overall, really great boutique hotel/villa and a gem hidden on the hill. Surprisingly, not too many people noticed this one from TripAdvisor. I was almost booked another hotel but suddenly saw this one from the reviews. Great view with great service! Couldn't book other room types (even honeymoon suites) as all sold out. It was amazing honeymoon experiences. Will go again if we can!
So nice to be away from overcrowded resorts, the room & view were amazing--almost unreal. We liked where this was located as well since we could walk down into Karon to shop/eat & its close to great beaches. Probably the best hotel overall of our 2 week stay in thailand...glad we saved it for last!
We were there for celebrating our 10th anniversary. It was such a nice surprise that our villa was upgraded to the most expensive one at the hotel and there was an anniversary cake in our refrigerator as a present. We really enjoyed our stay. It was beautiful and private villa with the wonderful seaview and sunset. We got the biggest and highest villa with the biggest private swimming pool and we enjoyed swimming there many times per day. Good breakfast and friendly staffs. Excellent service. Most of the staffs there speak well English. It takes about 5 minutes walk from the hotel to the beautiful beach. We will stay here if we travel to Phuket again.
Loved the location on Kata Noi hill, possibly better located than those hotels around Kata Noi beach itself if planning to get out. The hotel staff were very helpful and accommodating with the only exception being we were not contacted before our visit and emails were not replied to. The views are impressive - possibly some of the best here and I think all rooms should have similar views. As others have mentioned the condition of some fixtures, fittings and furniture should be better for the standard of accommodation and could be slightly distracting depending on your attention to detail, that said we spent 6 nights here and loved it, very peaceful including one day/eve when there was a wedding which was completely unobtrusive. We stayed in a Grand Private Pool Villa, if you are planning on sun bathing here then check with the hotel as a garden villa might be better - the area for our sun loungers was a little restricted but still satisfying in the long run. We ate out every lunch and dinner having only breakfast here which was very good - a la carte with no restrictions. Places to eat out locally are Red Chair for very good authentic Thai food, Red Duck as an alternative. Horn Grill was a great for non Thai food and had lovely staff. All these places are walkable or taxi for 200THB. Also the KataTurk turkish was also good. Further out we ate out Baan Rim Pa in Patong which was lovely Thai fine dining with a view over the ocean. 600THB, 20mins taxi. In the opposite direction Kan Eang Pier for great sea food and a good location again 600THB, 10mins taxi. All taxis are either 200THB or 600THB for Kata/Patong areas regardless, its just the way the taxis work unfortunately however taxi from the airport which is 1hr should be 1000THB Massages are plentiful, Tum Rub Thai at the bottom of the hill was just fine if you are happy with something easy going - expect less privacy, more noise otherwise our hotel booked us with Oasis Spa for a more asian spa like experience, 10mins away and 2hr treatment was 100GBP. We had not visited Phuket before and this hotel, location is great if you want to avoid the main areas of Kata and Phuket which are touristic on a massive level.
