Was perfect. Lovely staff, lovely hotel and lovely location. Was even more perfect that we didn't have to do much walking, we stayed at the beachside part and star bucks was only one minute away. Happy days!
A fabulous stay at this hotel. This is the second time we have stayed, the first as a couple, the second with two young children. The hotel provides great room options for both. We loved the different restaurant options and the babysitting service was great too. Kids pool very big, lots of toys to play with and heaps of loungers. Spa was wonderful too. Can't fault this hotel.
The Arcadia is ideally situated in a quieter area of Phuket and the Old Phuket Town is within easy walking distance for good food, massage and shopping.
Phi Phi Island diving is worth considering for those able to dive/snorkel from the purpose built vessels. Otherwise, the speed boat ride to the island beaches is a great day out.
Bangla Mall is definitely worth a visit at night as are the local markets at Malin. The food was terrific.
For the relax days in between tours, the resort has excellent options to rest up. Try the pool with cocktails or the full tension release massage with head massage add on in the day spa.
Highly recommend Phuket Hilton Arcadia Resort & Spa as base for a Phuket holiday.
We were greeted on our arrival by fireworks from the other side of the bay, and celebrations all the way to the hotel. At the hotel itself, the staff were always smiling and greeting/welcoming us wherever we were going. Our check-in was smooth and easy, our room spacious, clean and with a view on said fireworks. We tried the different restaurants, the room service and the Spa as well.
For the restaurants, the two that stood out on our point of view were the Prego and the Eest. The staff there were awesome and caring, the food excellent, and being able to order food and drinks while being in a swimming pool was incredible as well!
The Spa was a wonder: we took the 2 and a half hours package, and were not deceived one bit. The two massage attendants were efficient, smiling and our time there was great.
We also appreciated the cabby drivers - all were very polite, smiling and helpful.
