Twinpalms Phuket Hotel

High-rated and popular resort on the upscale Surin Beach

Featuring 97 rooms that range from large to enormous 3-story suites, the Twinpalms Phuket Hotel has an ideal location in the quiet and upscale Surin Beach area. This is primarily a resort meant for adults, but many rooms are plenty large enough for children. Daily butler service is among the more interesting 5-star amenities, but it’s the details in the rooms that are most impressive, and the attentive and personalized service as well.

The location on Surin Beach is ideal for those coming to Phuket to relax rather than get involved in the nightlife, though there is a beach club only 2 minutes down the sand, and Patong Beach is a short taxi ride away. Read the reviews and you’ll see that this is one of the highest rated luxury resorts in Phuket, so it’s a bit surprising that room rates are somewhat modest. You also see that this is a resort that some people return to each year, so reserving well in advance is wise if you don’t want to have to settle for second best.

What the reviews say

Reviews for the Twinpalms Phuket Hotel are nearly all raves, especially the more recent ones. All together this is one of the highest rated resorts in all of Phuket so it’s interesting that the room rates are on the low side for the 5-star category. The staff and service get very high praise, as do the large rooms with wonderful sea views and modern amenities. The location on a section of the upscale Surin Beach area is a big plus as well.

There are a few negative reviews involving disputes over the final bill and similar things, but since they are outweighed by an overwhelming number of 5-star reviews it would seem you’d have to be quite unlucky to have problems yourself. For a luxury beach resort in Phuket that receives these kinds of reviews, the prices are modest and it seems to offer excellent value.
