Luxury Hotel Review: Dream Phuket Hotel and Spa, Phuket, Thailand

By Two Monkeys Travel - Contributor February 11th, 2016 Posted in Asia Travel Blog, Luxury Hotel Review, Travel Blog 21 Comments

When traveling, I like to visit the tourist epicenters because they’re usually the most fun and rowdy spots. Sometimes though, I just need to get away to the tranquil and quiet side of the country.  I arrived in Patong Beach Phuket which is absolutely nuts. The beach and water are gorgeous but tourists are harassed by the locals every step you take for a piece of your wallet. Massage, taxi, food, ping pong show…girls grabbing and hanging on to you for dear life as you are just trying to walk down the street. After a night there, I had to escape this madness. Luckily for me, the brand spanking new Dream Phuket Hotel and Spa had just opened up and invited me in for a 3-night stay.

Dream Phuket Hotel is located in the quiet and secluded affluent area of Surin. It is about a 35-minute drive north of Patong. This eco-friendly hotel in on the West Coast of Phuket, a stone’s throw away from Layan Beach, Laguna, enchantingly framed by the crystal clear waters of the Andaman Sea.

Dream Hotel and Spa opened in December 2015 and is a quality build. It is sleek, refined, and intelligently designed. Upon entering this haven traversing the outside lobby you are struck by a pond-like pool with lily pads. The main pool is lined by commodious cabanas and hotel rooms with balconies and porches facing it. Some ground floor units have mini plunge pools on their porches and penthouse suites have larger pools on their balconies. Each room features floor-to-ceiling windows and spectacular views of the beautiful hotel pool, private garden, and pool or the lush surrounding green hills. The pond pool is a gorgeous anchor that lights up with tasteful neon at night. A far cry from the debaucherously Patong neon.

Dream hotel is comprised of 5 main buildings, 5 floors, 174 rooms, a rooftop bar, a Dream spa, a fitness center, a gentleman’s club (but all our welcome 😉 and the Trilogy restaurant.

The Room

My Deluxe King room was crisp and has a modern posh vibe to it. Four fresh bottles of water were waiting for me. Two of them by the sink so you don’t have to wash your mouth out or brush your teeth with dirty tap water. The room had some other astute touches. There was a do not disturb button by the door replacing those old school door handle signs. It nostalgically reminded me of the socks we use to leave on the door handles of our college dorms when we were “busy”. There was also a housekeeping button and all the light switches were on both sides of the supple leather bed frame along with adjustable reading lamps.

The room included a coffee and tea maker, Bath salts (not for consumption), and a scale under the sink so I could gauge how much damage all these Pad Thai has done to my waistline. My room faced the beautiful pond pool and offered a fantastic sunset view. The showerhead had also had great pressure.

The Dream staff was world-class, comparable to the famous Ritz Carlton’s eager to please workers. They were always smiling and they were numerous lot to help support any little request you might have. Being greeted by their smiles was always a warm experience.

Dream Club

The hotel is owned by the same company that has Dream hotels all over the world. They also own the Dream Club which was formerly Nikki Beach Phuket. There is a free shuttle from the hotel to go back-and-forth to the club on Layan beach. I had an early 6:00 dinner there to catch a remarkable sunset. Watching our warm golden orb descend down the ocean was a treat since my Miami Beach hometown is on the East so it was a unique experience for me.

Dream Club is a place to party like a Rockstar and be treated to Western delicacies most Asian venues lack. They fly in DJs from all over the world and throw killer parties. The Sunday before I arrived Pete Tong had a popular Sunday day beach bash where 800 people showed up.

For dinner, I enjoyed the gigantic baller cheeseburger with wagyu beef, topped with foie gras, and served in a gold leaf bun. It’s served with a bottle of Dom Perignon Champagne. Duncan and I were quite proud that we finished 95% of this beast. The burger was solid and made me a little homesick for the American cheeseburgers I had been craving up to this point in Asia. The coconut ice cream was also an epiphany. It was served in a baby coconut with a potent flavor, chunks of coconut, and coconut skin.

Trilogy Restaurant

The Trilogy Restaurant is a very interesting concept. 3 different menus and 3 different chefs compose the experience. The Trilogy menus are modern Thai, classic Tuscan, and contemporary European cuisine designed by three accomplished chefs, and prepared in a beautiful theatre-style kitchen. Guests have the option to dine at the poolside terrace or in air-conditioned comfort. The trilogy opens daily for three meal services, including a sumptuous International Buffet Breakfast.

The complimentary breakfast spread had all the fixings and is open until 11:00 AM. There was an omelet station, heaps of bacon, awesome Thai noodles, mushrooms, potatoes, American cereals, pastries, fruit, fruit juices, cheeses, meats, and fish.

For dinner, I really enjoyed the Deconstructed Massaman Curry with Lamb. Instead of the stew pot, it is usually served in Chef pulled all the components, and artistically laid them out on a plate. It was beautiful and gratifying.

The Mango sticky rice was also the best version I have had in Thailand. The balance of the cream, proper amount of mango, and fresh rice made this quickly devoured even though I was already quite full.

The Dream Sanctuary Spa

The sanctuary dream spa sanctified me like a Deity. Pui had a huge smile big beautiful eyes and magical hands that soothed every nook and cranny of my body I didn’t even know needed it. We did the Hope for Her package. It began with an invigorating Chinois apricot scrub followed by an aromatherapy massage using a signature blend of essential oils to induce a sense of well-being and to energize and awaken both body and mind.

The scrub smelled divine and transitions into one of the best massages of my life. I had been getting too many mediocre massages since I lifer Bangkok and my left part of the neck has been aggravated. Thankfully Pui fixed it right up.

If you are looking for a blissful, modern and beautiful place to escape and relax then Dream Phuket Hotel and Spa will delight, soothe and enchant you.

Note: I was an invited guest by the hotel and all opinions and text are all mines!

  1. Thailand has some of the world’s best hotels and resorts! Dream Phuket Hotel and Spa looks truly a serene Phuket escape! The decor of the room is cozy and classy. I’d love to stay there!

  2. What a beautiful hotel, I must say it looks like a high traffic place and I prefer quieter places to visit

  3. i think i have to be honest, i have to a few hotels but this one stands out from the lot. so clean, well design and looks so royal that a visit here once is going to be a visit everyday.

  4. Wow, this hotel looks AMAZING!! I would love to stay here if I’m ever in Thailand. Pinning for future travel plans 🙂

  5. This is really an elegant and luxurious hotel. It takes indulgence to a new height. It would be a great experience to spend a couple of days here.

  6. Sundecks in the balcony …what fun and the rooms are really lovely. The breakfast spread looks awesome. A perfect start to a day. And of course,, phuket is just lovely.

  7. Wow! Now this is a kind of luxury which I can only afford when I start earning . Being a student i have mostly spent my days on a single bed in student hostels. But this looks like an extravagant affair which I would not want to miss even if i go only once just for an experience.

  8. Wow! This looks right up my alley, I love the modern designs. A good aromatherapy massage is exactly what I need right about now. Phuket, here I come!

  9. Beautiful photos and an impressive review. I would love to be invited to such a resort! The breakfast spread looked amazing — I can’t imagine sitting down to eat from such a great selection for breakfast! This would be a dream destination.

  10. I’m not sure tucking into a bit of foie gras will endear you to every reader, banned as it is in many western places…

    Looks like quite a schmick place (a bit out of my league), how much would the 3 days have cost if you weren’t put up by the hotel?

  11. Oh my, this is just perfect! I would definitely want to stay somewhere like this if I was to ever visit Phuket! The room is gorgeous and I love the sound of the spa x

  12. This place is so beautiful, it’s exactly the sort of place we would stay if we went to Phuket. Love your blog! My husband and I have a travel blog too and I always look out for your posts

  13. WOW – this looks absolutely amazing. Hopefully visiting Asia around Christmas time so will definitely look this hotel up – looks beautiful 🙂

  14. What a gorgeous hotel! I am the opposite to you, I try to avoid the crowded places – so this looks perfect. I would go for that breakfast bar alone!

  15. Wow. The hotel looks incredible.

    It’s such a shame that you’re made to feel like that when just going around but great that you got to chill out and recoup somewhere as stunning and relaxing as this.

  16. The swimming pools looks amazing and there seem to be some great touches there. Got to love a hotel with a good spa as well x
