Grand West Sands resort is a five-star, family-friendly hotel on the west coast of Phuket, on a private beach adorned with palm trees. The hotel boasts its location as being directly adjacent to Splash Jungle Water Park, where hotel guests get entry for a heavily discounted rate. As well as thrilling rides and a lazy river, the water park also features hydrotherapy pools and spa treatment facilities for parents wanting to relax.
The hotel itself offers luxury pool villas with up to three rooms, penthouse pool suites, deluxe family suites, family rooms and family residences. There are six restaurants and bars for families to choose from, including a beach restaurant, a traditional Thai restaurant, an outdoor casual diner, a swim-up bar and a chic Italian dinner spot.

Large resort with a great aqua park. Free access for residents of Splash. Transfer between buildings, restaurants, pool and beach by golf buggies. Main restaurant Splash Village offers a good buffet selections for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast is a big fight with hungry Russians. For lunch and dinner it is recommended to go few meters outside of resort where the prices are almost less than half of those in resort.
A dedicated check-in and lounge villas and penthouses. The service there is very nice a staff is great and helpful. Club lounge offers complimentary food and drinks during day, however selection is very limited, better said very poor.
Rooms (we had penthouse with pool) are very spacious and comfortable. Room cleaning is provided, however needs to be improved. Also minibar shall be equipped with more stuff, (ex. 4 cans beer 3dl for two Czechs who like beer is definitively not enough!).
Beach is close to resort and is great with nice sand, especially during high tide with great waves. And, it was practically extremely clean!
Interesting for many visitors is the location of resort just in the airstrip of Phuket airport and you can “touch” planes during landing over the beach.
All in all, resort is good for families with children. Shopping and nightlife is not really available.
We have enjoyed our stay in Splash Resort and maybe come back again .

The spa here is amazing. I came here and stayed only for a short while. So i chose to go for a thai massage at the hotel. Which was amazing my masseuse Khun Aom she was so nice and her skills were the best. I really recommend to try it if you have the chance.
