Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort Review
Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort is a superb 5-star resort built on a hillside of Kamala overlooking Rayee Beach, which is just a little south of the main Kamala beach, far from any crowd. This luxurious 201-room resort on the west coast of Phuket offers splendid sea views from almost every balcony. Obviously, the higher the room, the better the panorama!
The sense of space and minimalist lines strike across the entire resort. As soon as you arrive, your eyes inevitably catch the vast infinity pool occupying the whole front of the hotel. Large king-size canopy beds surround the pool measuring 50 by 30 meters. Beyond the pool is ‘The Pool House’, the main restaurant serving breakfast and all-day dining with Thai and International cuisine to enjoy inside or outdoors. Next to the restaurant is a beautiful ‘Pool Bar’ with oversized sofas, perfect for spending some time in the cool breeze at the end of the day.

Restaurants and Bars
The resort highlight at the end of the day is Casa Boho, a Latin American rooftop bar and restaurant. Phuket now starts to have rooftops too, and from up there, Phuket views can beat Bangkok rooftops anytime! We spent an hour by the infinity pool to enjoy an excellent Chardonnay, treating ourselves to a spectacular sunset above Kamala Cove, the ultimate reward after a long exploration day.
Once the sun has disappeared behind the horizon, the sky remains blue for a while and sets the perfect background for a Latin American dinner at Casa Boho. With their excellent selection of wines, this is a dinner with a view you should treat yourself to once while at Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort.
Pool House Kitchen
Pool House Kitchen offers a variety of international and local dishes in a casual, modern setting for poolside breakfast, lunch and dinner. Their elaborate breakfast, with great coffee and live cooking stations, is very popular. They serve great food, light snacks, and refreshing healthy drinks featuring premium meats, fresh seafood, and locally-sourced ingredients, catering to various dining preferences throughout the day.

A buggy took us to our Club Ocean View Twin room, which was surprisingly large and, like every room, had a well-sized balcony offering a stunning sea view. We didn’t have the highest floor, but our place offered a broad panorama of Kamala Cove. Remember not to close the glass door behind you entirely if you don’t want to lock yourself outside as we did. The room had all the amenities you can expect from a 5-star resort and a lot more, a large circular woven sofa facing a huge flat-screen TV (of course, every hotel has a flat TV, but this one is larger and very well integrated into the wall) and fast Wi-Fi connection.
The bathroom area occupies two spacious and distinct rooms. One has a separate shower and toilet plus a large bathtub which is welcome after long exploration days. The other bathroom has a sink area, storage for bathrobes, a safe box, and a minibar. The bed is extensive and extremely comfortable, with turndown service at the end of the afternoon. Some high-floor suites come with plunge pools, but that will be for another stay.
Note that the Sunset Grill only opens at 6 p.m., but you can go up there anytime just for the fantastic views. After dinner, get a buggy back to the poolside for some relaxing time by the poolside. A few things to know: The Hyatt Regency Phuket is built mostly on a vast hillside, so going up and down can be challenging for people with mobility issues. Of course, a buggy will take you up and down, but it requires a bit of time for every move.
Hyatt Regency Phuket prides itself on several outlets. The exclusive ‘Regency Club’ serves food and drinks all day only for the ‘Regency Club members. Its most attractive feature is undoubtedly the 25-meter infinity pool with curvy pool chairs right in the water, a great place to hang out with a drink above the world below. The resort comes with a kids’ club and a well-equipped fitness. Next to it is the ‘Nahm Spa’, and everyone should try a spa treatment at least once, especially on those occasional rainy days!
For the kids
Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort offers a variety of exciting activities and clubs for kids of different ages and interests, such as Camp Hyatt, which provides cultural experiences, outdoor adventures, and arts and crafts. Kids can also enjoy building sandcastles and visiting Mother Turtle Rock on the beach, and those aged 8-10 can try the Bubble Maker course. The new marine-themed Camp Hyatt provides a supervised and safe environment for kids to play and explore, located near the infinity pool with an indoor clubhouse and outdoor play area.
The beach in front of the hotel is not a swimming beach as it is mostly rocky under the water. However, it’s a very peaceful beach with a few charming local restaurants to taste local life. The hotel provides regular free shuttles to go to the main Kamala beach a kilometre away, and there are always taxis waiting outside to take you to other parts of the island if you choose not to use the hotel limousine.
