Serenity Resort & Residences Phuket

Amazing value and very quiet resort along Phuket’s east coast

Featuring 62 rooms and villas overlooking the peaceful bay on Phuket’s east coast, the Serenity Resort & Residences Phuket offers excellent value among 5-star resorts. This is a quiet and somewhat isolated location that is ideal for families and those looking to relax, and rooms are all quite large and well appointed, especially for this price range.

The beach out front is more of a shore along a bay, so this isn’t really a proper beach resort, but it’s modern and clean with excellent service, and well equipped for those who prefer to stay put rather than exploring the island. There’s a Kids Club and a swimming pool, so families are welcome and well taken care of, but it’s also popular with romantic couples. Considering the reasonable room rates, this should be one to consider for anyone looking for a peaceful holiday on Phuket that doesn’t break the bank.

What the reviews say

Reviews for the Serenity Resort & Residences Phuket are extremely positive, which is both encouraging and a bit shocking considering that this is one of the cheapest 5-star resorts in Thailand. Nearly everyone is very pleased with the grounds, the staff and service, and the size and condition of the rooms. A common thing to mention is that it really lives up to its Serenity name.

The negatives mentioned are usually small, like the pool being a bit far away from some rooms, and that the beach isn’t sandy like on Phuket’s west coast. A few people mention that the location is quite isolated from the nightlife of Phuket, which is true, so this wouldn’t be a good choice for party people, but a great choice for families and others wanting to relax.
