"I can safely say that Surin is the best hotel in Phuket. Food, accommodation, service, room service, cleanliness, attitude towards hotel guests is simply excellent - at 5 star level. Every night they bring flowers and cakes to the room, each day prepared differently. In restaurants, the service is amazing, everything is very well prepared. Very attentive hotel staff- that solve any problem guests my have. On the beach, guests are brought and handed out fruits, as a free perk from the hotel."

We literally did not leave our villa, because it was so nice and comfortable. A beautiful beach at the hotel with soft sand. Breakfast is just wonderful with ocean views - a large selection of European and various other options, everything you want! Friendly staff, very family friendly!
