"Great location. Off the main road, so nice & quiet"
We organised airport transfer through the hotel which was a really good idea. On arrival we were looked after very well. Hotel staff were extemely friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the Club wing for over 18's and this was very quiet and relaxing.
"Nice hotel close to local shops & beach, eateries."
Expedia led us to believe we had daily breakfast package included in our fare. This wasn't the case.
turned out ok as we got beautiful pastries for breaky each morning from excellent supermarket at Jung Ceylon shopping centre.
Check on rainy season. We had days of torrential rain. Then sun ...

They welcomed us with a drink and cool towel, the room was amazing! And the balcony was huge.
The pool was also very big and had a beautiful view with a pool bar, it was close to everything and free shuttle buses to the beach and back :)
My husband and I stayed at Frutta last month. We stayed at 1 hotel each in Phuket, Koh Samui and Bangkok, of which the Frutta boutique was our absolute favorite!! In fact, it was what we loved most about Phuket! The moment we entered the hotel, we were really impressed with the service and the decor is so bright and cheerful - the perfect way to start our holiday. Mameka is so bubbly and she arranged a bike and other tours for us. She also ensured we ate bananas every time we visited the reception! She took our photo and gave us free caps. She upgraded our room to overlook the beautiful valley and hills - loved the view and tidiness of the room. Breakfast was refreshing and served in the opposite building, which also houses some workout equipment and a cute pool. Roger is so friendly and smiling always - he also assisted us each time we wanted to enjoy a cup of tea at the adorable table just at the entrance. He also suggested using the cute steam room which was sooo relaxing. Patong beach is easily accessible by bike or cycle. The cycle is provided free of charge by the hotel. Definitely recommended for those looking for a warm, cozy feel in a hotel and the best team to make your holiday in Thailand a truly amazing one! Thanks to all on the Frutta team, especially Mameka and Roger :)
Food is excellent but you want to change to try other restaurants in town. The problem is that the hotel staff is not helping the customers to get the reasonable charged taxi ride at all. It's quite difficult to get around if you want to visit the town 10mins nearby which is big minus, when the taxi mafia around the hotel tried to rip you off with 800 BHT per trip to the town.
Quiet season so hotel not overrun with guests. Gave me an unasked for upgrade to their best pool access room which was wonderful. 7 pools in complex so even if full would be plenty of room. Well maintained and clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Very quiet and peaceful resort.
About 15 minutes walk to Kata Beach but no hills I had a scooter so no problem.
The breakfast was adequate. Free in room WiFi excellent but not available in public areas.
Do not arrive early as you will not be able to check in before 2 pm.
