... an area full of Russians and 5 star resorts. We had to ask around and eventually scored a map of the city from a really nice lady in one of these hotels. She told us we would have a better chance for budget accommodation downtown in the market area, which we had passed with the bus and that was according to a source 4 km away. The problem with places like here is that it is full of the wrong kind of tourists: the ones that are not so rich in their country but once in thailand it ...

After Leam Pakarang we headed to Ban Nam Khem where the most Thai people were killed, aroud 2000, a wall the size of the tsunami wave has been built to in commemoration and mirroring the tsunami wall is a patterned wall homing engraved plaques to remember those killed, unfortunately there is a cost to have a plaque mounted which is why they are mainly Germany names.

And the rain even let up for most of our time in the kayak, so we didn't get too wet. After kayaking, we returned to the longboat and continued our tour of the bay. I had hoped that by organizing a tour from Phang Nga, we would avoid some of the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Aleenta Resort & Spa Phuket Phangnga
My girlfriend and I spent five days at Aleenta in early January. The property is exceptional. The food is great. The staff is exceedingly friendly. There were only a few minor negatives. First, the English language abilities of the staff are not particularly good. Of course, it would be helpful if my abilities at Thai were better, but what the staff may lack in English, they do make up in friendliness and helpfulness. Second, the service in the beach restaurant is a bit erratic. Once the food arrives, it's fabulous. Nevertheless, a bit of patience is required if you're expecting five star table service. Third, an absence of mosquito nets is a problem. While the rooms are built with mosquito net ceiling mounts, I was told that mosquito nets have not yet arrived at the resort. This isn't a problem if you choose to sleep with the A/C on, but for those of us who enjoy sleeping with the sound of the ocean at night, it was a bit of a disappointment. The Thai mosquitoes will eat you alive by the way. But these minor negative points should not detract from the huge positives of the resort. If you're looking for quiet, exclusivity, class, and exceptional ambience, Aleenta is near-perfect. The cooking class experience was great as well. Also, we stayed in an Ocean View Loft, which was beautifully maintained and just perfect for us. We also tried an ocean front pool suite for one night, and while great, we preferred the higher view vista offered by the loft. In the end, if you're in Phang Nga province, choose Aleenta - you won't regret it.
Just returned from Thailand where we spent last 5 nights at Aleenta Resort. As mentioned in previous review, it's a little far from Phuket town or Patong beach where all shoppping and nightlife happens (around 40-60mins by car). When we were driven to marina port where all water trips start from, it took even more then that - around 1h20mins). But a little bit of isolation was exactly what we were looking for as Phuket is overcrowded and you get tired of it.
If we'd realised quite how isolated this hotel was, we probably wouldn't have chosen to stay here for 2 weeks. Aleenta is a beautiful hotel, on a glorious deserted beach, but it is almost an hour away from the nearest town, so if you feel like a change of menu (and after two weeks of the same menu you most definitely do), you had to spend a fortune travelling for an hour, and raise your blood pressure with a thai driver to go to a restaurant.
Stayed there just last month and had a good time. The resort is a little far from Phuket Town/Patong - about 40minutes at high speed, which is not so bothersome if you plan to spend the time in the resort. There is certainly enough to do -- but make sure to book the activities in advance! We were really annoyed that most of the activities (like snorkeling in Phi Phi, caving, white-water rafting, etc) required 24 hours notice, and we weren't informed in advance by the staff, in spite them knowing we were interested.
My husband and I stayed at The Aleenta Phuket for 9 days recently, our last holiday together before our baby is born - so we were looking for a very romantic, quiet, secluded paradise - and we found it!!
Aleenta is possibly the most pleasant hide-out for those who are trying to retreat from daily hassles. I spent a few days in June in both the newly-opened Phuket (Phangnga) resort, during its soft-opening, and in Hua Hin. I particularly recommend the Phuket loft rooms with their terrace opening on the resort, the beautiful Andaman sea and an amazing almost olympic-size infinity swimming pool. The beach is great, the environment blends design and simplicity, there are no TVs and no telephones (but Ipod docks) and a genuine feeling of comfort and relaxation. Food is excellent (amongst other delicacies, try the recipes of large stir-fried noodles - can't remember the Thai name), staff is charming and attentionate (regular staff apperance on the beach with crispy cold towels and fruit skewers highly appreciated). Hua Hin, in a slighlty different format, is just as great. Reminds me of these beach holidays when you are a child and that you don't want to end, or end because you know you'll be back.
I went to Aleenta having somewhat mixed expectations. I knew the hotel was just open and that some of the privately owned lofts were still being constructed but this is the reason why I had such a good deal on the room rate. As soon as I arrived in Phuket I was wisked away in a car for a 15 minutes drive north from the airport. Then magic , once you passed the lobby , it is just a superbe view of a pristine beach and some villas, bungalows that could have been found in Ibiza, Marocco or Greece. Thank you for the mangement to have finally built something different from the usual thai/balinese style.
We were the guinnea pig, yes. The hotel is just open and we were there. We used to stay at Aleenta in Pranburi and loved the place, so couldn't wait to book when we heard they are opening the second property. The design is totally different, stunning and very very different from Aleenta Pranburi and it doesn't disappoint. Even with some construction still continuing in some part of the hotel, we were not disturbed by the noise. The staffs are amazing albeit new so still under training, but everyone is eager to please. Our room was the Pool Suite, Aleenta's style, right on the beach, with bigger pool this time plus outdoor jacuzzi! The spa is amazing, the sunset at the beach bar is to die for, the food is divine. Menu changes daily so we didn't feel like we had to leave at all during out 10 days stay. This place should be really completed by July, and we can't wait to come back. Already it's a stunner, can't wait to see the complete package. Try to get in now during soft opening as prices are set quite low.
