“The Chava at Phuket; A really first rate place for a family holiday.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

The Chava at Phuket; A really first rate place for a family holiday.
The apartments are superb large and spacious with amazing bathrooms. They are immaculate, really clean with first rate linen and towels. The kitchen is excellent with super cooking utensils etc. but you do not need to since the hotel restaurant is fantastic, serving a full range of Thai and western style food. The food is well cooked with fresh ingredients and very tasty.
The wifi is quick easy and can be used in your room or in the restaurant or by the pool.
The facilities are super with an excellent size pool for all ages. The location is great, you can walk to the beach in less than 2 minutes. There is a range of local restaurants and 5* hotels within easy reach – but in my opinion the hotel food is better. There is a full range of local shops including a small Tescos. There are many things to do either independently there is a large tut-tuk station nearby, or the Chava staff will arrange good value tours and activities. We went to see James bond island and did a snorkelling trip. We also did elephant trekking, visiting waterfalls, a tour of the island, the gibbon rehabilitation centre and golf.
The staff are absolutely fantastic, and cannot do enough for you. It is a great place to holiday.

Room Tip: Our room was fine we had 107 - is was overlooking the pool. I would certainly chose this room again!

Dear Philippa W- it was our pleasure to host you and your extended family here at The Chava recently. Our large, spacious Apartments really do suit family groups travelling together with two bedroom / two bathroom being our smallest options. We get a lot of comments regarding our fully equipped kitchens, yet most guests seem to prefer using the many varied nearby dining options throughout their stays. Thank you for your compliment regarding our food offer as well. Also for the nod towards our staff-this is appreciated. Hope to see you again in the future, regards-Peter J.

We have recently stayed at the Chava Resort and in all honesty, i was more than pleasantly surprised how good it was. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment which was huge, it had everything one could wish for. The apartment is fully air conditioned which at this time of year is a blessing, and when we had any issues they were dealt with promptly and satisfactorily.
My boys loved the pool, and it was only a short walk to the fabulous Surin beach.
Peter the general manager was almost always there and was very attentive and helpful, what's more, he was a very pleasant chap!

Overall, a 5 star stay, thank you to the staff and management, we will most definitely be back.

Dear Damienmcgurn- lovely to hear back from you and hope you all got back to Dubai safely. We are very glad that you chose to stay with us here at The Chava and that we exceeded your expectations. Our pool certainly provides a very safe option for families, with our very close proximity to beautiful Surin Beach as the alternative.Washing machine and dishwasher certainly make a stay more comfortable if you choose to do your own thing, but most of our guests, like yourselves find the multitude of nearby restaurant and dining options very worthwhile visiting. Don't forget to drop me a line on peter@thechavaresort.com the next time you want an escape-we're only 6 hours direct from Dubai-cheers Peter J.

We stayed at Chava with our extended family. We were delighted with the large self-catering apartments with superb amenities. Our extended family occupied different style apartments on different floors and they were all of the same high standard. The staff at reception were really helpful and seemed genuinely pleased to assist whenever we had a query or wanted to book a tour. The individually cooked breakfasts were the best I have had in a long while with plenty of choice and very prompt service. The pool area was lovely with plenty of luxurious beds. The Chava is close to local restaurants, shops, supermarkets the beach, taxis, tuk tuks and bus route (to Phuket town) so getting around was no problem at all.

I have recently (July 2014) spent 7 very comfortable nights at this beautiful resort. Our two bedroom apartment, with every amenity one could wish for, including the much needed air conditioning throughout, was in a word outstanding. The management went the extra mile for us as did the staff from start to finish.This is an exceptionally well managed resort with a strong hands on leadership style by the manager (Peter) ensuring the smooth and relaxed atmosphere of the Resort. Surin beach is a comfortable 3 minute walk away (if you can tear yourself away from the lovely pool area) The meals served by the pool are good and in a very relaxing environment.
Overall, a 5 star stay, thank you the management and the staff you made our holiday

Room Tip: All rooms are more than adequate

Lovely big apartments, perfect for families. The pool area is great for kids - and also long enough for laps! Walking distance to Surin beach and a myriad of restaurants to choose from. The a la carte breakfast by the pool is fabulous - and decent coffee too (a rarity in Thailand).

The staff were very helpful - we have a child with a peanut allergy and all cook staff had been briefed before our arrival and the front desk staff had also printed out a few cards in Thai explaining the allergy, that we could show to the more local restaurants.

Everyone had a great holiday, Well done Chava! We will be back.

Dear hkkiwis-thank you for your comments about your very recent visit with us. We are very pleased to know that the extra few yards that we try to take for our guests is appreciated-simple things can have critical consequences and a child's health and safety is of the utmost importance, so we were only too happy to assist you with your son's allergy. Did happen to notice you pushing out the laps in the pool each morning-well done-helped make room for breakfast I think!!! Thanks also for the mention of our great coffee. See you again soon, we hope-drop me an email on
peter@thechavaresort.com and I will ensure you get best available rates. Kind regards, Peter J.

My wife an I just returned from the Chava Resort for our 25th wedding anniversary. We could not have asked for a better experience. The Chava Resort is truly a first class facility. The rooms were great and we just loved laying on the cabanas by the pool ordering cocktails. Peter and his team made us feel at home. It was our first time to Phuket and his advice and assistance in terms of what to see, restaurants to go, etc. was spot on. We will definitely be coming again.

Room Tip: Rooms with the pool view was great.

Dear Vik K- It was our great pleasure to host you and your wife here in Surin Beach whilst you celebrated your 25th wedding anniversary - we felt quite honored! Assisting our guests with personal recommendations on the best of what Phuket has to offer is part of what we are able to provide in our small intimate resort. Pool view rooms are in either block B or C, for your next stay with us- hopefully before your 30th! Kind regards, Peter J.

We just returned from our first family holiday to Thailand, staying at the wonderful The Chava Resort, Surin Beach, Phuket.
One of our best holidays ever with both of our kids rating it a "10 out of 10".
Phuket was great but The Chava Resort made it a memorable stay. The pool area is superb as is the standard of accommodation. The team at The Chava were fabulous and ensured we never had anything to think about but relaxing. Also met some other terrific people staying there. Brilliant coffee as well!
Thank you to Peter Jones, Sharon and the team for a brilliant time - we will definitely be back.

Dear Wayne & Family- we are so glad that the "bosses" gave us a 10/10-every parent knows these are the guys who really dictate where we are going to holiday, so we are very pleased that your kids enjoyed their stay with us. We are also delighted that you enjoyed our facilities and that our team made this such a memorable stay for you. Yet another mention about our coffee which most of our guests seem to love-Chiang Mai grown and Phuket roasted! Hope to see you back again very soon-go The Warriors! Regards, Peter J.
