We definitely splurged on this hotel, but it was so worth it, this hotel did not disappoint! We booked this hotel for a couple reasons, mainly, the location: we wanted a less crowded beach than your standard beaches around Phuket.
It's a long drive from the airport, like an hour and 20 minutes maybe. However, give yourself plenty of time to get to the airport when you leave, traffic could make it almost 2 hours to get there.
We arrived early around 11-11:30am and we were prepared to leave our luggage and not be able to check in. However, we were pleasantly surprised that our room was ready, and not only that, but we were upgraded to a room with a balcony and view of the beach (we had booked the mountain room). The room was huge and the view was amazing! The bed was super comfy and they give you plenty of drinking water.
The food at the hotel is fantastic, the breakfast buffet is insane! We also ate dinner at Cosmo on their Wednesday night Asian-themed buffet, which was really good! We also had ordered room service for dinner twice and it was so good!
We booked a day trip to the Phi Phi islands using the concierge in the check in area, so convenient and the hotel provided breakfast boxes for us to take.
The beach butler is located inside the entrance to Sea Salt. We got beach towels, a beach umbrella and some snorkels, so nice that they supply all this!
Overall, we had a great time and would definitely stay here again!
