“This hotel is Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

On my vacation in Phuket i visited 2 beach, Patong and Karon.Patong is a very busy street a lot of people in short very noisy.So after my 2 nights stay in Patong i extended my birthday celebration at Karon beach and stay at this hotel and it was so amazing, the room,the bed, the location its very near to the beach 5 mins walk only and the SERVICE is perfect.The staff is very friendly.very cozy hotel.i loved it.I booked a standard room and it has a balcony.a lot of tv channels, you have big frige a huge shower area with a classy shower amenities and a huge cabinet to put your stuff. you must visit also their tiny cutie swimming pool and its look like your private pool.The boss is awesome he is really a generous and very understanding.i have a late flight and requested for late check out, the boss not only gave me a late check out but also allow me to used my room again since i have a very very late flight.
This hotel is highly recommended if you want a perfect vacation.

Kata Tranquil Villa is a new, clean, basic hotel. It is near a main road which has a small Tesco Lotus, some places to eat and get massages. The main Kata part is a bit of a walk but they have a free shuttle bus for local area (we didn’t use as hired a car). Kata Beach is lovely but busy, smaller Kata Noi is slightly less busy and even lovelier. Cooked breakfast is approx 150thb but we bought our own fruit and kept this in the fridge to have. The pool is small but nice. Being a small hotel, often there isn’t anyone around but there is a bell by reception you can press. Hot water and pressure is good. The hotel rooms are on one side of the property and the villas on the other side, independent of eachother (but still close). I booked a hotel room for myself and boyfriend which was extremely noisy – there was always thudding noise from upstairs at night and in the morning, we could even hear people snoring and baby crying in room next door - did not get much sleep during our stay. Booked a villa for my Mum & sister and selected 2 bed option when booking so they could have separate beds. Emailed hotel to confirm 2 beds numerous times (using emails on booking.com and their website) and via booking.com but received no response. On arrival, there was only one double bed in villa. When asked for second bed, a folding cot bed was provided – nothing like the two separate proper beds as per picture on booking.com. On check out they charged for the cot bed - this was removed when showed booking confirmation which specified (and paid for) 2 separate beds when booking. Villas has a fridge (which hotel rooms have too) and microwave, dishes, sink.

as of writing is review (2014 jan) the hotel seems to be quite new. it was definitely the best place so far in thailand, even better than the 4 star hotel i stayed at. perfect cleaning service, nice staff with sufficient english.
we also had our laundry done there for 80 thb per kilo. perfect service.
still, the hotel seems to be a little cheaply built. the balcony door is cheap plastic and looks like its gonna break soon. apart from that all was perfect. there is a small shop right across the street and karon beach and kata beach are only a 10 min walk away. there are also very good and quite cheap restaurants in the area.
i wanted to extend my stay for another week, unfortunately it was fully booked.

This place is brand new. Only 5 months old. rooms are very luxurious for the price you pay. But it is very modern, not in Thai style, if you prefer that.

There is limited hotel service, but most of the tenants, rent long time, a month or more. Then prices are very interesting, while walk in price per day are much higher. Then even the place is recommended, but then you can find hotels a bit closer to the beach. Not all personnel speak good English, but especially the bosses sun is really very kind.

Rooms are bright and there are 2 kinds. The normal room or the bungalow. The latter are bigger and have a kitchen. The private terrace of the latter is big, but it is not open, there are wooden bars for more privacy. Some are at the pool, others in the garden. All rooms have fridge and flatscreen tv.
