Rated 5 out of 5 by apark3 Great swimming pool / Kind staffs
The staffs are very kind. The swimming pool (especially splash pool) is very clean / large. The sun tan chair & cocoon chair are very cosy. The beach was good. The breakfast buffet at seaonal tastes are the best. I enjoyed smoked salmon, pancake, omlet, noodle & various smoothie/fruit juice.

The resort need a lot of work done the paint is falling from the wall, the room was noise with the carts room 4428 right were the carts park by that building , we ask them to change us to another room and the change was denaided, in the morning we had a early tour and we ask for a plastic container to take just some fruit with us and they say it was against the resort policy. No free Internet beside the lobby! Bathroom light didn't work, carts usually didn't came to pick up, everybody ( employes) is on their cellphones and also I saw a few in Facebook on the resort computers. I ask for a pack of cigarettes and it took 40 min for them to bring them , we eat at the Italian restaurant and the food was really bad. And we order pizza to the room and it was the worth I ever had beside they only brought the pizza box with no plates or silver ware. We have been traveling around Asia for over a month now matter fact we are in Singapore right now. And westin Phuket has been the only bad experience thru our trip.

This Hotel was built in 2010 and already falling apart. Pool Tiles falling off, Elect. Outlets came out of the wall, Roofs already covered with plastic apparently leaking. Staff was wonderful, room didn't meet up to other Westin Hotels I have stayed not on my top ten of SPG Hotels.

Best View, Nice location easy access to the town the view is awesome
a bit disappoint about the cleanliness of room especially on the top cover of table and terrace, rooms are located up around the hill so you have to climb up to room or wait for the staff to pick up

From welcome check-in to departure, everything were perfectly executed. Service is impeccable, great pools, great food and we love their attention to details.
We visit Phuket every year for the past three year, first time in Westin Siray and will surely not the last.

Rated 3 out of 5 by YJ888 Quiet, Beautiful views & Remote
We booked a week in the low season so as expected the hotel was quiet, which is what we wanted. The room was spacious, although I had booked a suite but even so it was more spacious than suites at other hotels. It is remote so do expect to either stay hotel bound or spend relatively large amounts on over-priced taxis to get you around. The hotel does offer a shuttle bus service every other day to Phuket town and the 'old town' area of Phuket is definately worth a visit.
We took the buffet Sunday lunch at Prego and it's definately worth doing if you stay over on a Sunday. Good choice of international food and plenty of it. Those of you who stay at Westins alot will know Prego is Italian food so dont expect lots of Thai local food.
The staff were all lovely, helpful and attentive.
The night time view is quite spectacular - although I wonder about the effect on the environment running so many lights
The downside... The hotel is in need of some basic remedial work and especially at the swimming pool at Prego. A lot of tiles missing and any slip as you are getting in could leave a nasty cut. This needs fixing very soon. The hotel needs a good audit by management and some paint added here and there to spruce it up.
There is a beach but it is small and I can imagine in high season this would be very full, very quickly.
I would recommend this hotel if you want remoteness and not to leave the hotel very often (or you can hire a car if you want to drive, but Thai driving style is very different to Western style, even Italians would be scared!). If you want to get out and party every night in Phuket island then this is not the place to stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Eddiemex Pricey yet nice
Traveling to Phuket for our honeymoon, the Westin seemed like an obvious choice. This hotel is beautiful and the privacy is a plus. However, this played on the downside: food and dribks are Extremely expensive and sincerily below average for our standards.

Rated 3 out of 5 by beanbagx SPG and Westin Staff need better coordination
The overall hotel facilities and location were pleasant. However, the buggy vehicle service needs to improve. The waiting times were rather long. On one occasion, I had to wait for close to 30min, and no buggy came. In the end, I walked back from the SPA center back to my hotel room.
I was also extremely disappointed with the coordination over billing matters, between Hotel staff and SPG. Apparently I was billed by SPG prior to my stay in Westin. But when I checked with the Hotel upon my arrival, I was told there was no payment received, and was advised to make full payment again. Even the prior payment charged to my credit card was wrong.
I was shocked when I heard this, and had to spend a Sunday, just staying in the resort to try and resolve this, including calling back SPG Singapore. Quite frankly, my hotel stay was very short, and to spend time resolving this kind of matter is really uncalled for. The stay experience would have been so much better if this was done more professionally in advance!
Hope the hotel and SPG pays attention to the above.

All things fine, staff members keep on interacting with each other even in guest presence. Seems a little discourteous but not intolerable. Breakfast gets too crowded but quite nice on the food and service part. Nice place good value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Remco2010 Excellent hotel but with a couple of negatives
I was here for a corporate event, which was flawlessly organized. The conference facilities are very good and the internet very fast. Food and beverage is outstanding but with one disappointment: the coffee at the breakfast buffet is terrible. Maybe they put too much coffee in the caffetiere, I don't know. The coffee that is brought together with the breakfast in the rooms is excellent, however. So I am not sure what is going on there. The rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed. I had one problem though that they were renovating the room above me: after complaining they stopped. When I moved to the Sala pool villa I of course did not have that problem anymore. However, annoyingly on my free Saturday, again renovation sounds were coming from one of the rooms and sound of the worst kind: cutting tiles... The management should not allow stone and tile cutting to be done within hotel premises. Measurements can be taken and stone cut outside of the premises. Apart from the above gripes I still think this is an excellent hotel with very friendly and helpful staff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CharmaineB This hotel/resort is absolutely amazing!!!
Our stay at this hotel was great. We chose this venue for our anniversary. The hotel was just lovely,furnishings were very tastefully done, our room was fantastic. The rooms are large with big bathrooms, the views were magnificent. The service from all the staff was extraordinare. It was nice to see the General Managers desk situated in the foyer where people often walked past and he was happy to have a chat at anytime. The restaurants were clean and tasteful the food was excellant, and buffet breakfasts had a large range to choose from. We had the most wonderful aromatherapy massage in the spa there - highly recommended .Even though some rooms can be a distance away from the main hotel there is always hotel transport to take you to and from your room. There was hotel transport to the main shopping centres at a minimal fee. The gardens/grounds are impeccably maintained. The hotel is good for singles couples and families. We will definetly be coming back again and recommending this wonderful hotel to all our family and friends. Thankyou to management and staff for a lovely stay.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kika2013 Very disappointing
I am a SPG member and stay. At the hotels expec Westins quite often. To say this was one of my worst experiences is an understatement
From the moment I walked in- staff was rude and not helpful: - room not ready, no welcome drinks accommodations etc....
Ok so we waited asked for a map- seemed to be inconvenient and then were finally given a Russian map (we speak English) told there were none, and then proceeded I. Our own to ask someone else minutes later and were provided one. Out luggage (fragile) was thrown into a golf cart for transfer to our room and flew off of the cart. Our non smoking room smelled awfully of smoke and had ants in it.. We called for shaving cream and too the paste - were told ok and never saw either and on top of that a rip offffffffff!!! Local beer is 40-70thb so I expected it to be a not more but more than 50% ???? They charge 150thb !! And beware same of tours -- u can go straight into town with a pamphlet from the hotel and spend 600-1000thb less per person.
Again I've stayed at many Westins but this was awful and we spoke to the manager and were just apologized too!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mike46 Good perks for Platinum
We confirmed an upgrade to a standard suite before we arrived ( paying an up charge), and did get another upgrade to an even better suite. When we arrived 3pm the suite was not ready, but we got a standard room for use till the suite was ready. While this is nice, the normal check-in time was 4 pm and latest by then the suite should have been ready.
Upon check-in we were informed about the benefits of SPG Platinum, which were an cocktail hour at one poolside bar (as they do not have an executive club) and free ABF. Very nice.
The hotel itself is quite far away from everything. Basically just one very basic restaurant within walking distance, but for the 3 nights we stayed there the restaurant choice at the hotel was good, especially offering a very nice Christmas eve Thai dinner.
The beach is not good at all, but pool are nice on the hill with a nice view. The hotel is on a hill so you gotta walk stairs up and down ( unless u always want to use the buggy).
The room itself was nice, but nothing spectacular and obviously the staff was not used to the 2 story suites, so they did not clean the upper part and had to be reminded.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Juice17 Big = Good?
I stayed at the Superior Sea View room 20xx – 3days 2nights.
1) Safe box was not working
2) Replenishing of bottled drinking water and washing of glasses was overlooked
3) Bath towels smells like it was not properly dried.
4) Room slippers was tattered
5) Shower room blind was very mouldy
6) Room air-con can be bit noisy at certain settings
7) Frutti De Mare pasta from Prego was bland and watery
8) Food quality (Thai cuisine) from Eest was average
9) A LOT of mosquitoes….I really mean A LOT…all over the property
1) Excellent staffs and service
2) Heavenly bed
3) Room was nicely furnished
4) Although it was not possible for a late checkout, they did however gave me a standard room to shower.
For a vast property like Westin Siray Bay, I understand the challenges the management is facing in the upkeep of the resort. All employees, front and back, have a part to play in making the Westin experience an exceptional one. As a traveller who has experienced Westin hospitality, I would say that the standard at Westin Siray Bay is average. If these minor details can be rectified, Westin Siray Bay will be an excellent choice among travellers.
