About a week after swimming in Dara's swimming pool, I realized I must have left my GoPro somewhere along the pools edge. I had been taking videos of my ten-month old son practice the swimming (think splashing and dunking) he learned at the hotel's Manta Kids Swimming Academy. Somewhere along the way I set the camera down and completely forgot... More

I read previous reviews on this hotel on the way, this hotel was booked for my by the company I was working for, and feared for my stay there. However, checkin was fine, no concerns with the checkin process at all. My room was in a separate building next door, you walk through a car park to get there, and... More

They provide free Tuk Tuk (transportation) to go to the Night Market and back. Location is 5 minutes walk to a Mall, Breakfast was excellent. Large room with nice interior. We stayed after we came from Phi Phi Island, As we wanted to visit the night market and the Central Festival (mall). We stayed 2 nights.

I just spent 3 nights at the New Dara Hotel. It is located just around the corner from Central Festival, great for shopping and the hotel has a free shuttle to the shopping center. I had a junior suit room and have no complaints about comfort and cleanliness. The bed is gorgeous with cozy duvet. The sofa is so comfortable... More

We stayed at this hotel in the end of July due to its convenient location to the pier, with us departing the following morning to Phi Phi- however the trip still took around 40 minutes in the morning due to horrendous traffic congestion! One major disappointment with this area of Phuket is the extortionate prices for Taxi's, although we were... More

Stayed here for two nights recently as we needed a Phuket-based hotel for a jungle experience nearby. We transferred straight from Phuket Airport at a cost of 500THB (taxi’s there will try to charge you double this so don’t accept a much higher price than this!). First impression of the hotel was average, the place is very nicely decorated in... More

I must thank Dara Hotel for our wonderful experience in Phuket. We arrived earlier that requested for early check in, the front desk is very helpful though they don't speak fluent English. Room is spacious, and the Interior Design and efforts made to the lobby and room is just awesome. We are impressed too with the breakfast offered. Not exactly... More

Located very close to a wonderful shopping area and lots of other amenities I highly recommend it.

We had a late flight arriving into the Phuket airport and needed to catch the 8 am ferry to Ko Phi Phi, so we chose this hotel because we thought we would save a little money since we were only going to be in it to sleep for a few hours. We also chose this hotel because it claimed to... More

The airport pick up was so dodgy. No communication and a random stop off in the middle of nowhere. Upon arrival the staff asked for my partners passport then tried to direct us to our room. When I asked for the passport back, they claim the "lost it" !! It had only been 3 minutes since handing it to them.... More
