The whole experience right fro. The ease of booking was excellent. Was great to be met at the airport and everything we did felt like it could be tailored to whatever you wanted.

Staff were great ,particularly Juan the driver of the shuttle bus who seemed genuinely interested and concerned that I was well and enjoying myself. I love the aerial yoga and both yoga instructors were great.

"Amazing retreat where they treat you like family:)"
Everyone from the instructors to the receptionists were amazingly friendly and welcoming. After the first night, everyone was like a family. i love how the yoga instructors actually lead the day tours so you get to know them better. Great experience and highly recommend if you're looking for a yoga and fitness retreat with lots of activities!

"Perfect for lone travellers"
The team at CC's is so friendly you could never feel alone there. They always stop for a chat and to ask you how you are and if there is anything else they can do for you. The yoga and the excursions are great for making friends so you soon have other cool people to hang out with. The location is perfect as you are close enough to the beaches and the free shuttle service that CC's helps you to get there but also tucked away from the hussle of the tourist hotspots, you really are in your own little oasis!

"Fantastic Yoga retreat. We had an amazing time!"
Everything! Cc's is a little gem in Phuket. Clean, bright, lively and fun- we loved staying here. Big, comfortable rooms, fantastic maid service and generally wonderfully maintained.
Shuttle bus from hotel to beach/shops is a fantastic way to great and very easy sight seeing.
All yoga instructors very very good. Lovely outside studio.
Food- just delicious. Generous portions.
Activities- brilliant mix of relaxation and activity. Elephant sanctuary and Big Buddha were experiences we will never forget.
Tour guides and massage therapists- exceptional.
Just loved it.

"This experience is definitely WORTH it!"
This experience was well organized, the tours were intimate and detailed, the activities were amazing and unlike any other generic tour I've ever been on. They give you more food than you could possibly ever eat and you leave with a happy heart!

I booked my Yoga retreat at CC's at the last minute. I had no idea what to expect, but the experience surpassed any expectations. The hotel staff are all very warm and friendly. The food was very good and the yoga retreat was a really good mix of classes and daily activities. Nuya, Luis and Kendo were all wonderful. The retreat also created the opportunity to meet people very easily. I met wonderful women from all over and came away with new friends. It was an amazing experience.

"El retiro genial, el resto; perfecto; esto si son vacaciones"
La situación del hotel, pues el entorno rodeado de naturaleza hace que te sientas realmente en un retiro de yoga, de paz y de buena energía.
La atención de todos los instructores de yoga que tuve esa semana.
La sonrisa infinita de Nuya Laksanachan y los muchos detalles y atenciones en las excursiones tanto de ella como de Hattaya Nim Wannasoi; sois geniales.
Y muy especialmente debo agradecer a Beer el masajista; mi espalda y mi cuerpo está mucho mejor; mil gracias la verdad, solo lamento no haber estado unos días más para poderme hacer un par de masajes más.
La atención de Luis Enrique en mi bienestar; muy agradecida también.
El personal del servicio, del bar y del restaurante; la amabilidad constante y siempre con una sonrisa en sus caras.
“Awesome yoga class”
I loved the classes at 5.30 pm. Not too hard but challenging. Luis gives good instructions and whilst the class is progressing the sun sets.
I felt so relaxed going into the evening every time, can recommend it to anyone.

I decided to spend my 47th birthday in Phuket, and I narrowed down my search to either CC's Hideaway or one of the resorts in Patong. I am so grateful I chose CC's Hideaway as the hospitality is second to none. Everyone took the time to get to know me, and they were always ready to help me with any questions I had.
Also, the resort offers exceptional excursions I definitely took advantage of such as the John Gray Canoe, the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary, and Koh Rok & Haa snorkeling. Just make sure if you are staying during the high season to book your excursions a minimum of 2 days in advance.
The continental breakfast is great as well as the food from the restaurant. My room was very big, the bathroom was good size, and the balcony was great as well. The wifi is exceptional and also free. Just remember that when you remove the room key from its slot the electricity will shut off in about 30 seconds. The A/C unit works very well and easy to control. There were some water stains in my room that should probably be painted over. I also took advantage of the free shuttle to Kata Beach.
If there is one complaint I have is the neighbor next to resort has a rooster who likes to wake everyone up at 4 am, and you will hear the rooster if you stay in either room #'s 14, 15, or 16. I think it is time to have a talk with said neighbor about the nuisance of said rooster.
Finally, make no mistake you are up in the mountains and the hill is a very steep one - about a 60 degree angle - and so be prepared coming and going from the resort.
Once again, thank you for my wonderful time and I will be visiting again.

Overall a great place to stay if you want to avoid the craziness of Patong. Also great for practising yoga (Lois was a great, fun and compassionate teacher) or enjoying a massage (I can't remember the gentleman's name but he was amazing! Also taught some yoga classrs) or other wellness features. Or if you just enjoy chilling by the pool! Lovely staff, always super attentive.
If you are looking for a quirky little hotel somewhere in the south of Phuket, you can’t go wrong with CC’s Hideaway. Nestled high in the lushly vegetated hills away from the madding crowds of Karon and Kata with a cockerel as your next door neighbour, this oasis of peace and fun offers superb views and yoga twice a day in an open air studio. You don’t need to be worried if you can’t put your legs behind your neck; the yoga teacher encourages you to do as much as you can whilst gently encouraging you to stretch just that little bit further... astonishing value as well for the length of the class. Ditto the massage. The free shuttle buses are a real bonus as, believe me, you don’t want to be negotiating that hill in the heat. You just need to be prepared to sometimes have a bit of a nail biting ride, depending on the driver.
Breakfasts are to die for if you love mango and pineapple and eggs cooked any way you want. The bacon is crisp and pastries are fresh and yummy. We also ate at the hotel at other times and the meals we had were delicious. It’s a shame wine is so expensive but that’s not the fault of the hotel but the exorbitant duty the Government places on it.
Although the pool isn’t huge, it’s perfectly large enough for swimming and playing. I defy anyone not to try riding the inflatable orca!
If you get bored (which I doubt) you can always while away your time trying to work out the meanings of the numerous paintings throughout the hotel.
And now for the staff..........we found them uniformly friendly (always greeted with a smile), jokey and helpful. As in any holiday, there were a few minor problems. No hot water, actually no water on occasion. An air conditioning unit which sometimes emptied water all over the floor. However, these issues were sorted out immediately on reporting. We were impressed by how professionally any negative comments were taken. All the staff seemed genuinely proud of their place of work.
All in all, a little gem of a hotel. We would have no hesitation in returning.
I found CC’s Hideaway while searching for yoga retreats, looking for an R&R type of getaway. Once I found CC’s, I realized how much more there was to do, and before you know it yoga and R&R were not so important anymore. I scheduled a 2 ½ hour massage for the evening I arrived and another prior to leaving. The massages were very relaxing and totally worth the pennies on the dollar compared to US prices. Every morning I had their breakfast which seemed to get me through most of the day. The hotel staff set up all the tours and I enjoyed the salt-water pool after my adventures each day. Dig a little deeper into their website, and you will find packages and other sources for things to do during your stay. You can even add a yoga class or two. I don’t think I would have left feeling so complete if I simply made it a Yoga getaway. Thank you to the staff and GM, you made me feel like a Queen during my visit and exceeded all of my expectations! I would recommend CC’s Hideaway to everyone I know.
