Courtyard by Marriott Phuket Town

Courtyard by Marriott Phuket Town Review

Courtyard by Marriott Phuket Town is the latest luxury hotel to open on the Island, with an excellent location and a short distance from the lovely streets of Old Phuket Town. The hotel is just next to the iconic clock circle, and the building itself is well known by locals and long-time residents as it used to be, the old Metropole Hotel. The hotel is 4-star, but it feels like a 5-star as we were pleasantly surprised and genuinely impressed with the new design, layout and atmosphere.

Courtyard by Marriott-Hotel Phuket Town

If, like us, you knew what the Metropole Hotel used to look like, the renovation is jaw-dropping. The lobby is bright and spacious, with high ceilings supported by columns. The surrounding walking gallery on the second floor overlooks the lobby and its beautiful sculptures and sitting area. The chandeliers add to the majestuous impression. The reception faces the large entrance, and as you walk through this new lobby, the legendary Thai hospitality of the friendly team will instantly make you feel like a VIP.

The Rooms

The surprise continues as you enter your room; it is as elegant as the reception area. The bedroom is bright and white, beautifully decorated in a modern minimalist style and with an excellent lighting design. A large window offers a view of the clock circle below and the eclectic roofs of the shophouses around it.

The bed is large and super comfortable, and the TV facing is very oversized. There are plenty of plugs to charge your equipment, no desk but the small table is comfortable to work.

The bathroom is equally attractive, vast and bright, with a shower but no bathtub. You can find the usual amenities in such a hotel: bathrobes, toothbrushes and toilet kits, lotions and delicately scented shower gels and shampoo.

Restaurants and Bars

Yue Chinese Restaurant

Yue Restaurant at Courtyard by Marriott Phuket-Town

We tried the new Yue Chinese Restaurant by Chef Kenny Chang on the 2nd floor of the Courtyard by Marriott Phuket Town, for dinner and a Dim Sum Breakfast on Sunday morning. Both times were fantastic, excellent cuisine, prepared and served by a great team, in a beautiful setting. The dinner was delicious and relaxing; we picked several items indicated on the menu as ‘chef’s recommendation’, and it was probably the best decision we made, a chance to step away from the usual classics and experience new dishes.

It was so good that two days later, we came in the morning for a Dim Sum breakfast. In Thailand, many local Chinese families love to gather for a Dim Sum breakfast and Yue is one of the best choices for such an occasion!

Hours: 7 am – 10.30 am, 11 am – 2.30 pm, 6.30 pm – 10.30 pm

The hotel is 600 metres from the old streets, so it may be good to treat yourself to a fancy breakfast before starting your exploration day. Guests can sit indoors or on the small terrace overlooking the clock circle. Open from 6.30 am to 10 pm.

Talung Lounge

Talung Lounge is a cocktail bar next to the reception, open from 10 am to 10 pm. It’s a nice cosy area where you can wait for your friends, have a business conversation, wait for your taxi or even work on your laptop if you feel too lonely in your room.
