The 79-room boutique hotel is a fully equipped modern designed room with most of the rooms facing the swimming pool and those on the 1st floor actually had pool access. We stayed at the 40-sqm Grand Deluxe Room which is nicely laid out – big comfortable Maya Bed right as you walk in, facing the door out the balcony overseeing the swimming pool and further in you have the marble bathroom with generous portions of shampoos and bathfoams. The bathroom is also equipped with a power massaging shower head.
Dining is convenient in Maya Phuket Hotel. The M Recipe on the second floor is where all the meals are served. We had the buffet lunch on the day of arrival and it was a nice mixture of Western and Asian cuisine. The pasta was great, so as some of the Asian hot dishes like the Tomyum Kai and the Pad Thai Woonseng (glass-noodle). There was also a good selection of seasonal fruits on the buffet line. I would say it is a pretty value for money buffet lunch and when we were there, there were doing a buy 1 free 1 offer, making it irresistible.
In terms of facilities, Maya Phuket has an 24-hours state-of-the art fitness center and a lovely swimming pool with built in jacuzzi. All rooms and public areas are WIFI enable where you can stay connected with friends and family and get your work done.
The bed and pillows, which both are signature products for Maya Phuket were comfortable for a great night rest, and all rooms comes with buffet breakfast. The breakfast selection is standard with choices of asian and western but what makes the breakfast special is the selection of cook-to-order items such as eggs and pancakes or waffles.
We were also recently informed that the hotel’s new hangout place, SOE Club (which was under-construction when we were there) is now opened.
The room rates at Maya Phuket starts from under RM 200 a night and for that price, I would say the Maya Phuket is a pretty good value of hotel if you want to be away from the crowd of Patong or even Karon and Kata. It is conveniently located at the peaceful Naiyang Beach where water are calm and clean and is not so crowded. If you are flying into Phuket International Airport, Maya Phuket provides complimentary airport transfers.
