Loved this rather large hotel. Very different from the other Thai hotels we stayed in all over Thailand. Modern with thai flair. All cement and wood ( think a more fun W hotel) with great detail to the little things. Large rooms and seperate baths with an outdoor tub. 3 great pools and a short walk to the beach. Happy...

Spent 3 nights at this hotel this week and it was our second time. First time was 2 years ago and due to good memories decided to come back. This time we came with our baby. The hotel couldn't find any room for us at the ground floor and asked us to stay one night in another room and than...

I stayed here as part of my honeymoon for 6 nights (supposed to be 5!) and only really have positive things to say. It is calm, quiet, relaxing & in a beautiful setting. If you've looked at their website you'll have seen the tin mine theme & lots of detail has been put into the smaller things. The hotel is...

Stayed in December 2011, and had booked Indigo Pearl for a week. During the first couple of days we spoke to reception and the duty manager about a tapping noise that was coming from the full height wooden headboard, also pointing out that a couple of the floor boards were cracking and could be dangerous. The only response, beyond looking...

Dear Tlake, We sincerely apologise for the bad experience, certainly agreed this should have been handled by us better. Please note we have taken preventive maintenance measures to ensure our resort is termites free which happens occassionaly due to the tropical climate. Please be rest assured this is not our standard. Kind Regards, Indigo Pearl team.

We had holidayed in Phuket several times in the past decade but this was the first time without the children so we decided to book a hotel that was a bit more upmarket. It was a great choice. The hotel is 10-15 minutes from the airport which is a major plus given the traffic and delays getting to and from...

Having spent my fair share of money on top-rated places that purported to be luxurious, I was skeptical that shelling out extra money for this swank property would be worthwhile (particularly since I left a property about $100 less per night in Kata Beach that was perfectly fine). After staying here, however, I became convinced that staying here was worth...

Indigo Pearl is such a beautiful, contemporary hotel with stunning grounds and gardens. The facilities are excellent and the location is perfect , just a few minutes walk to the beach.
