Breakfast was really nice, buffet and eggs cooked to order. Room was absolutely stunning and the pool was perfect.

I wanted to stay in a romantic hotel, as i pen my new novel Henna, A Goddess's Love Affair. I think i picked the perfect boutique hotel off Kata beach. I simply adore the rooms. Spacious with a large queen bed, warm colors of orange hues and deep brown against teak wood furniture. A large bath tub is in the... More

Stayed in Chanalai Romantica Resort June 2015 due to its perfect location for Kata beach. Very pleased with our spacious room and enjoyed the relaxing pool area. All staff were extremely pleasant, polite and helpful. Only negative was the breakfast, with food being left uncovered and thus swarmed with flys, and popular items such as hash browns had ran out...

We could just pick anything we wanted and everything tasted fresh and good. Every day buffet varied a little and the selection was huge! Our room was decorated nicely and was cleaned daily.

this is our second visit to this hotel, and we hope to return again next year. This hotel is spotlessly clean, in a great location for nightlife and restaurants, and very nice friendly staff. Fresh fruit and welcome back message on the bed on arrival.
