Has anyone stayed at the new Renaissance in Phuket? I am planning a trip over Christmas and would like to use points. The JW seems to be getting rave reviews but unfortunately I cannot use points there that week. How does the Ren Compare in location & service?
The Renaissance is very nice- trendy design and architecture. Cafe del Mar type music playing. Nice restaurants. However- the pools are small, and it is a bit far from the activity (other hotels, supermarket). It is right on the beach which is great.
