Cape Sienna Phuket Review
Cape Sienna Phuket is a beautiful resort with panoramic views of Kamala Bay, designed to take full advantage of the hillside setting. All 146 rooms offer a sea view with a large private terrace; most have a Jacuzzi or a private pool. It is a hotel for a romantic holiday, and while the hotel doesn’t have beach access, a free shuttle can take you to one of the two beaches nearby.
Kamala is one of the most popular beaches in Phuket. With fine sand, clear blue waters, and lots of beachfront dining and shopping in the street parallel to the beach, Kamala is incredibly popular with returning travellers and families, especially with the Phuket Fantasea park nearby.
Cape Sienna Phuket is on a green hillside, and the view strikes the most wherever you go around the resort. As soon as you enter the lobby, the sea view occupies the entire front. The designers took full advantage of it, which becomes even more visible once you reach the swimming pool. Wherever you stand, there is a photo opportunity.
Restaurants at Cape Sienna Phuket
Vanilla Sky offers a stunning and unobstructed 180-degree panorama above the bay, with Rayee Beach on the left and the main beach of Kamala on the right. The bar is large enough to accommodate everyone but, of course, you better come a little early to get the best seats. Sunsets are usually around 6.30 pm, but you can quickly check google for the exact time.
Below Vanilla Sky is a supposedly excellent steakhouse called Plum Premium Steakhouse. We didn’t get to try the food, but the setting is fantastic here, too, especially if you book one of the small Sala (an open pavilion) set into the water. It’s so romantic that you can even ask for a unique romantic decoration if you wish to ask The Big Question. We met a young couple doing just this, and she said yes! The sunset was so fabulous on that day that it was irresistible.
The Poolside Bar and Restaurant is where you will enjoy an extensive buffet breakfast; it’s bright, spacious, and a perfect place to start a holiday.
Cape Sienna Phuket, of course, has a superb spa with sea-view treatment rooms with a comprehensive selection of treatments you can expect from one of the most romantic hotels in Phuket.
The Rooms at Cape Sienna Phuket
We booked a Sea View Deluxe with Jacuzzi. The room is not huge but very well designed, with a very convenient working station facing the sea, which we found super convenient. The outdoor Jacuzzi is large enough to accommodate two persons and private enough you don’t have to worry about your neighbours. The best is to face the ocean while having a bath.
What we loved
- There are many things to enjoy at Cape Sienna, and the views come first!
- The functionality of the room layout, lots of electric plugs, the large balcony with a Jacuzzi
- The bright and tropical holiday atmosphere is everywhere you go.
- The excellent Vanilla Sky rooftop bar and Plum romantic Sala!
Good to know
- Parking is extremely limited, so if you come by car and can’t find a spot, good luck.
- Cape Sienna is not recommended if you have mobility issues. Nothing is challenging, though, since they have elevators here and there but still some slopes and stairs.
