U Zenmaya Phuket
U Zenmaya Phuket is a charming seafront boutique hotel located half way between Patong and Kamala Beach. This resort is modest in size but quickly became popular because of its attractive infinity swimming pool and for the rooms facing the ocean. Overall the hotel is quite well priced considering the size of the room and the amazing sea views.
U Zenmaya only has one restaurant located just to the lobby in the main building. Zeascape is a spacious and very welcoming place where you will certainly enjoy a large buffet breakfast. The immense terrace in front of it is the definitely best part: a panoramic rooftop bar and restaurant is always irresitible. You can have dinner or even just a drink in one of the cool bean bags, it’s definitely worth a stop. Breeze Bar alsoserves cool drinks while you enjoy that fancy pool.
You can select one of the 5 room types: Superior (33-40 sqm), Deluxe Seaview (35-48 sqm) and the Suites Seaview (70 sqm). The best rooms are of course the Deluxe Seaview Pool Access (50 sqm), and the beautiful Suite Seaview Pool access (60 sqm).
We booked a Deluxe Seaview and it was large enough for our short stay. The rooms are well designed with a lot of facilities, a good working station with plenty of plugs, a large TV set and the extra day bed. We particuallly enjoyed the oversized outdoors jacuzzi on the balcony.
U Zenmaya Phuket is good compact hotel for those seeking peace and relaxation as it is located a little far from tourist areas. There is a free shuttle to take you to both Kamala beach or to Patong beach 5 times a day. The hotel also features Zensala Spa and a small fitness room

What you should know
