    Location

    Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa is located on Mai Khao Beach, on the quieter northern end of the island. You’re a long way away from the crazy nightlife of Patong Beach, which for many is a blessing. This is the perfect place to get away from the go-go bars and beach parties to enjoy some well-deserved pampering and relaxation.

    Ironically, the remote location makes the hotel very easy to reach: Renaissance Phuket is just a 20-minute drive from Phuket Airport, and a 3-hour drive from the southern Thai hub of Surat Thani.

    Style & Design

    Renaissance Phuket does an expert job of blending a clean, contemporary style with distinctive Thai influences. This is seen in beautiful details like the vaulted shape of the private villa roofs, reminiscent of a Thai temple, or in the lush tropical greenery surrounding the hotel pool. Even the most basic bedrooms are beautifully bright and airy, with a glass panel separating the room and bathroom for an open-plan feel.

    Facilities

    The hotel has all the hallmarks of an exceptional 5-star resort, including a lovely ocean-facing outdoor pool and a truly gorgeous day spa offering a wide range of high-end treatments.

    Fitness fanatics will love the hotel gym, which comes with a solid set of proper weightlifting equipment, as well as the many activities on offer. These include yoga, volleyball, soccer, circuit training, and pilates.

    Food options are varied and superb, from an authentic Thai restaurant to fresh nightly barbeques, international meals, and carefully crafted poolside cocktails.

    Rooms

    Renaissance Phuket offers two sizes of rooms as well as a stylish 1-bedroom suite. However, if you have the budget, it’s the private villas that you want. Each comes with a plunge pool as well as luxury touches like huge bathtubs and LCD TV’s with premium channels like ESPN and HBO. You can even opt for one with an ocean view, or for a huge 3-bedroom duplex housing up to six people.

      Location

      Kata Beach is one of Phuket’s most popular spots, offering a quieter and more laid-back alternative to Patong and Karon. The resort is located atop a hill, offering beautiful views of (and easy access to) Kata Beach, while still feeling a bit more secluded than some of the other hotels in Kata. You can walk to Kata Noi Beach within a 15-minutes.

      If you feel like partying, both Kata and Karon have lively nightlife. If you really feel like partying, Patong’s famously gay Paradise Complex is just a 25-minute taxi ride away.

      Style & Design

      SIS stands for “Stay In Style”, so everything in the resort is designed for optimum aesthetic points. The design is futuristic and truly unique, contrasting rounded shapes with sharp angles and modern materials with the beautiful natural surroundings of the hotel. Long story short, it’s an Instagrammer’s paradise.

      Facilities

      The SIS Kata Phuket has two pools, one of which overlooks Kata Beach and the Andaman sea in spectacular fashion. The 24-hour gym is large and well-equipped with a range of cardio and weights machines, and the spa offers excellent relaxation treatments.

      Dawn To Dusk restaurant offers delicious food throughout the day in an elegant setting, while the Twilight Sky dining terrace is the place to go for dinner with a view. The SIS also features a cool cafe, swanky neon-lit bar, pool bar, and a health bar serving fresh juices and salads.

      Rooms

      The SIS has 124 rooms in a variety of sizes and styles. Even the most basic rooms come with impeccable design and good amenities, but we recommend upgrading to a room with a view. You can choose from garden, pool, or ocean view, with the latter being stunning thanks to the hotel’s elevated position. All rooms come with a balcony, but it’s the ones with the private balcony jacuzzi you want.

      sammcdougall & drewelphick spend six nights in Phuket visit three unique hotels showcasing the different parts of the island. They started in Patong, the island’s party hub and key beachfront city. Patong offers a mix of city attractions, great restaurants, nightlife including some popular gay clubs and nearly 3km’s of white fine sand. The second stop takes them to Mai Khao Beach on the northwest coast of Phuket. This peaceful beach stretches 11km and is undeveloped except for a handful of luxury resorts. Their final destination is the island of Naka Yai, a short 10-minute boat from Phuket. The island is home to just one exclusive resort. Sam tells us more about his time in Phuket below.

      Millennium Resort Patong Phuket

      Millennium Patong Phuket was the first stop of my Thailand getaway, and I couldn’t have asked for a better start. My flight got in late and we arrived at around midnight to check-in, thats when the friendly team at Millennium showed us to our beautiful room which they had upgraded to have private pool access. Millennium is perfectly located in Patong which allowed for a short walk to the beach, the best shopping and also the famous Bangla Road. On top of it’s great location, the resort itself had an amazing pool (with bar!) and gym facilities we used every day, and the buffet breakfast was also a highlight.

      Staying at the Millenium as a gay guest, we felt more than welcomed and comfortable. By the end of the stay, all the staff knew us by name and were giving us advice on what to do, including making dinner reservations with the best seats in the house at Joe’s Downunder, a must do for a good meal and best view of the sunsets. Honestly, the highlight of our stay was seeing how excited the team at Millenium were that we were enjoying ourselves so much.

        Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa

        The Renaissance Phuket was the second stop on our Thailand trip, and it did not disappoint. The Renaissance is away from the hustle and bustle in the Thalang District and is only 20 mins from Phuket Airport. From the moment you arrive into the property at Renaissance we were blown away at how beautiful it was. Located right on the beach (stunning white sands and crystal blue water which we basically had to ourselves), we spent our time here doing nothing (literally nothing) but relaxing. The location down by the waterfront right next to the amazing pool is a must for afternoon drinks (try the berry margaritas!) as well as the most beautiful buffet breakfast you could ask for, situated on a big deck over a pond where you could easily sit for hours and just keep eating.

        To top of the stay at the Renaissance, the staff were kind enough to upgrade us to a private villa which had its own private pool which our bedroom opened up to, and to be honest we spent a lot of our time relaxing here. I would also highly recommend visiting the spa (you will understand when you see it – it’s incredible) and taking advantage of the free activities that the hotel hosts every day (we did Thai boxing each morning with a trainer which we loved!). Overall, Renaissance get’s a 5 star rating, a must do if you truely want to relax and be pampered.

        The Renaissance Phuket were more than accommodating and some of the kindest people in Thailand. The privacy and luxuriousness are second to none, and the activities on offer each day (boxing, fitness, stand-up paddle-boarding etc) were really fun and a good way to break up your day of doing nothing but relaxing.

        Pro Tip – check out the Pride and Joy Couples Romance Package to make your stay extra special.

          The Naka Island, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Phuket

          The Naka Island was one of the great highlights of this trip. A short 10 minute boat ride off the mainland, we arrived to Naka on the jetty where we were welcomed to island by ringing a gong (a tradition on the island when arriving) and greeted by the most beautiful staff. We were driven around the resort and shown all the facilities, and then taken to our villa. When we opened the doors and were shown into our villa my mouth literally dropped. I have stayed in some nice places in my time, but nothing had compared to this. The trip turned from a holiday to what felt more like a honeymoon. Words won’t describe how beautiful the villa was and how luxurious we felt. We decided to stay an additional night at the Naka because we literally just did not want to leave.

          We would start each day with a run around the island, exploring the jungle, the beaches and the small town in the centre, we’d would take advantage of the amazing buffet breakfast (get the pancakes, trust me) and then either lay by our private pool or wander down to the main pool. One morning we were lucky enough to be served a floating champagne breakfast in our own villa pool which was incredible (see the pictures for proof!), and we also took advantage of the hotels activities including Thai boxing, the gym, Thai language classes and also canoeing through the mangroves (a must do!). The staff also arranged for day boat trip to a few of the surrounding islands, including the famous James Bond Island which is another must-see (especially just before sunset).

          Overall, words can’t describe how amazing the Naka Island stay was. We will definitely be back. And for anyone looking at an overseas wedding, or honeymoon spot …. Naka Island is it!
