We stayed at the Sala phuket for 4 days for our anniversary at the end of a trip to Thailand, the boutique hotel was outstanding the service was so personal. The breakfast that was taken off the menu was incredible and all the help yourself was to such a high quality. The room with the private pool was the best we have ever stayed in. The gym was really well equipped especially for Thailand standards. We will be returning to hotel without a doubt ☀️Read more
We stayed here for 5 nights at the end of a vacation in Thailand. We had a SALA pool villa which was excellent. Very private with no rooms overlooking it. Arriving in the dark was a bit disorientating as the room had so many different light switches it took us a while to try and work out what they all did. Outside bathroom also took some getting used to but was fine once we got the hang of it and saw it in the daylight. Just needed to be careful not to tread on any frogs! Plenty of shade for those who burn easily like us - either on the sun loungers or the day bed. Bottled water was provided but they will bring more if you ask. They then leave you that amount each day during your stay. Use this water for the kettle and coffee maker too. Breakfast was good, with a cold buffet (the usual choice of fruit, cold cuts, cereals and yogurts, pastries etc.) and hot food prepared from the menu, with some more unusual dishes as well as the usual western choices. We did have dinner the first night (Thai food), but that was a bit average and we ate elsewhere subsequently (Takieng at the Renaissance was literally a walk across the lawn). We did have pizza and a club sandwich on room service, which was good and made a nice change. They don't charge any extra for room service, as they add a service charge in the restaurant too. The grounds were well tended and very pretty, and walking up and down the beach was great as it was not at all busy.Read more
We stayed at the Sala for three nights in early November. When we first arrived at the hotel, we were greeted warmly by the staff and thought that the hotel grounds were small, but well-maintained and very pretty. We were taken to our room, which was a Sala Villa with a private pool, a bit early which was very much appreciated. One of the staff members showed us to our room, and turned on the air conditioning - it was super hot in the room, but we sat by the pool for a few hours, hoping that it would cool down. However, the air conditioner was barely blowing, and did nothing to cool down the room - I actually blowdried my hair outside at 5PM in 85-degree heat because it was cooler. Additionally, we had some rain on the first afternoon, and noticed that our ceiling was dripping - after a visit from maintenance (who looked at the leaking ceiling and told us "yes, it's raining"... which wasn't very helpful), and probably about an hour and a half of waiting on/off the phone with a manager and other staff, we walked to the front desk and asked them to change our room. We were moved to a different room, but a bit frustrated that the process took so long; we would have preferred to be moved right away, rather than offered multiple visits from maintenance, waiting for call-backs that didn't happen, etc. The second room at the Sala was better, but again, the air conditioner was definitely not up to the standards of any other hotel in Thailand we visited (and we were there almost 3 weeks). I wasn't necessarily a fan of having the bathroom outside of the room, but this is a matter of personal preference - but the outside of the villas IS very beautiful and striking, and we did enjoy having our own pool to enjoy in the afternoons. The hotel has two pools (a lap pool and a "fun" pool), and is situated on Mai Khao beach, which is absolutely stunning. The pools and beach were really nice and the staff was friendly and attentive. The breakfast every morning (included) was plentiful and there was lots of variety - we enjoyed the a la carte items that you could order in addition to the buffet menu. We did use the gym, which was split into two rooms, a cardio room and a weight room - however, the weight room is not at all air conditioned (this may be a theme...), so I only lasted a few minutes before dragging weights into the cardio room to finish my workout. I'm not necessarily docking the Sala any points for this, but on my last night at the resort (we had eaten at the resort the previous two days/nights), I came down with a pretty severe case of food poisoning. I know this is pretty common in Thailand, but the timing felt unfortunate to me, given that I hadn't eaten anywhere else in the two days prior. This could be completely unrelated, but I felt I should mention it as part of this review. Overall, the resort was very beautiful and well-maintained, the staff were friendly, and I enjoyed the private pool, but I do not think the rooms are comfortable - they could clearly use a bit of maintenance and updating, and I would prefer the bathroom not be outside. I also think the management could have responded in a more organized way on the first night of our stay, rather than keeping us in our (extremely hot) room for two hours while we waited for maintenance and follow-up calls.Read more
Very nice hotel ,looking a lot tired , needs a refurb. Staff very polite and helpful as are most Thai people .Breakfast very good . Except the lobster and steak evening , we rushed back from a day in Phuket ,only to find out no lobster Why not,? After all Thailand is full of lobster. But not at 8.30 in the evening.At the Sala. Disappointed to say the least .So book even if you are resident. Limited spirit selection at the bar.Due to a change of supplier we were informed . Room to improve everywhere .Roof top area needs a tidy up .Read more
The best resort we have ever stayed at, hands down. What a place to go and kick back and relax. Pure luxury. The resort is tranquil, has a secluded private beach, a couple of huge swimming pools, comfortable loungers, day beds, the grounds are very well kept too. Had a couple of amazing massages in the beautiful spa. Highly recommend. The rooms are stunning with private pools (mostly) and outdoor bathrooms which, we really enjoyed! Amazing food in the restaurant, amazing staff and the most amazing place to visit! Thanks team Sala! Read more
