Recent guest reviews

Booked this hotel through Expedia with a really good rate. Yama is small but comfortable, and situated on a hill with a great view. A little far from the kata beach, but there is a shuttle bus offered by the hotel. Overall a great place and price!

When getting here I was a bit nevous about my accommodations because orbitz messed up and put my in the wrong room from what I had selected and I was advised that my prefered room type was no longer available. When I got to the front desk, I explained my situation and showed them proof of the incident. Right away they were so accommodating. They gave me and upgrade to a corner suite and that alone won me over. The hotel is nice, quiet, and clean. I haven’t had any food or drinks yet but I will over the course of my stay. However so far so good. I love it here. And my view is amazing. I can also see Bug Buddha from my bedroom.

This hotel is spacious and clean. The staff is friendly and make sure that your needs are met. The shuttle was convenient and the times are reasonably. I have the room with pool access and a beautiful view. I can’t wait to come back next year.

It is a very clean hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Free shuffle to beach every day from 10 - early evening. Cannot recommend this hotel enough. Perfect for couples or family. Exactly like the pictures above

We were in Phuket for honeymoon when we stayed in Yama hotel for 3 nights. Excellent. Superb stay......we will come back. They gave us a free upgrade to sea view room. Breakfast buffet was so good and rich. Pool and jacuzzi are sore,axing and offers a great view of Phuket. See you soon again Hotel Yama

Nice quite location Food good swim out villa great value. Great place to watch sunset. Staff friendly. The views over the bay are magnificent. A short stroll to kata noi beach is worth its weight in gold. Nice restaurants on kata beach with stunning views. Great place for couples.

Arrived from Chaing mai same graded hotel. Service we received in Chaing Mai far greater. We ordered a steak meal each as we arrived at 7pm and the hotel is outside of the resort so we thought we would eat here as too tired to find somewhere to eat. My husband's steak was full of fat and could not cut through it so we said it was inedible and they replaced it. The 2nd one was very bad also but he had no choice but to eat it as he was hungry, I ate my mine but not great. I advised it was really bad and thought I should not pay for it. But because of the lack of English they call the reception and a lady came down and we had a discussion with all of the staff standing there just staring at me and making me feel stupid she then offered a free taxi to go in the resort to eat, of which we declined as we were so tired. FOOD POOR SERVICE DISGUSTING. Hotel very clean and the rooms are lovely. It is too far out of Kata but if the courtesy bus rang past 4.30 pm I would say it would be ok. We paid our bill this evening with no discount and it has been our worst and most expensive meal for the last 10 days so summary the hotel is ok just don't eat there, and staff need to be more attentive and give much better customer service. I am a travel agent in Engand and will never recommend this hotel

Just home from a 10 night stay at this amazing hotel rooms spotless staff very friendly helpful and chatty bar staff are very good food ok had problem with my pizza not been cooked as well as i liked it they sorted it straight away pool clean reception do get you a taxi if needed but we just went out to a nice little guy outside the main gates took us everywhere he suggested were to visit our very own tour guide , the hotel is a bit far out from everything so probably wouldnt stay here again a for that reason only couldnt fault anything else .there is a little shop that sells water crisps ice lollies and beer cheaper than hotel prices had a nice visit to Phuket

Stayed at the hotel for a 9 day getaway service was amazing. Our flight came in late we arrived at the hotel at 1am and were greeted with a fresh kiwi drink and friendly faces. The room was great, there is a pot to heat up water and coffee in the room. Housekeeping service was good, changed sheets and cleaned room daily. They offer a free shuttle to kata beach hourly until about 4pm. There breakfast buffet was delicious! They offered pancakes, omelette, fried egg. A large table area lined up with pastries and Thai noodle/rice dishes with chicken. They had another area with fresh fruit and cereals as well. The pool are was nice, it’s lined up with comfy areas to tan on or just enjoy the pool view. They also have amazing ocean and Mountain View’s. Overall great stay would definitely recommend.

Beautiful hotel, very good service, impressive We stayed for 1 night and will come back to use the service again.We recommend if you come to Phuket, don't forget, we would like to try this service.Both the atmosphere and the reception staff are very friendly. We feel warm at this reception.
