We stayed 10 nights at the Movenpick in April 2016 and decided to return to Phuket for a third time and try a different resort. After staying at The Katathani Phuket Beach Resort for 3 nights, we decided to wear a cancellation fee and move to the Movenpick. Why mess with perfection!
Both times we stayed in a Family Suite - 2 Bedroom. They have modern options and also Thai style suites, and the latter is what we prefer. The rooms are massive! Including one King room with an ensuite and outdoor shower, a lounge room with dining table and lounge and a small room with a bunk bed, then another room with 2 doubles and another bathroom with outdoor shower. HUGE! Having a room by the main resort pool would be ideal for those with children.
The food is amazing! We included the meal plan which was breaky, and lunch. Lunch was 2 courses, if you choose dinner it's 3 courses. There are 4 restaurants to choose from, all of which serve the most amazing food. Please try the Green Chicken Curry Pizza at Mint. You receive complimentary water twice per day and they deliver ice to your room in the evening.
At the front of the resort, you turn right, and there are many local restaurants and shops, as well as all the massage places. The first convenience store you come to, does bags of laundry, we used this 3 times and had 6kg and it cost us 285Baht - so $10. Clothes come back perfectly folded and packed and we have never lost an item yet!
We love the Movenpick, it's the perfect location for families and the rooms are amazing! There are also 3 pools to choose from, not including the one that is attached to the residences. Amazing!
A special thanks to Michelle McGregor and Kimberley Sheldrick from Travel Online, who helped us move resorts mid holiday. You guys made it very easy. Thank you.
