“Brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

My friend Twiggy booked this place, which turned out to be great. Lovely rooms and great staff. They have an excellent spa and the hotel has been done up in a really cool way. Lots of individual character. The receptionist, Tia, is very nice and deserves a promotion and a pay rise. She works very hard, between the front desk, the cafe, the bar and organising the spa treatments. She really is a gem.

Our family (parents and one teen) stayed here for a total of seven nights (before and after a scuba trip on a liveaboard). We agree with all positive comments in this posting. The photos are accurate. The hotel is very comfortable, clean and rooms have everything needed. The people are very friendly and helpful which is a plus AND we had breakfast each day in the coffee shop with the best lattes ever! On on our departure day, they arranged for taxis and the offered two free foot massages (30 mins)! That's a nice perk.

If you want to stay in Chalong, this is a good spot for sure. We visited the seafood outdoor restaurant on the beach a few doors down at the pier, which was really good...returned several times for lunch and dinner to sit outside at the beach. Really good variety and choices, service etc. (try the ice lattes). There are other tourist services along the road out front of the hotel leading to Chalong Pier, but the rougher bars and nightlife was not appealing for families although it was safe enough. This is a good location if you are diving from the Chalong Pier (we used the German-run Dive company called Sea Bees which is only a block away, so made it fun. They had a nice boat, good DMs...and thanks to Marcia at Gekko Scuba (a travel agent) who helped us with the live-aboard, hotel and dive company.

Room Tip: for family use, we booked room 102 VISTA (I believe) which has two adjoining rooms right beside the...

Stay at the hotel only for 3 days but it was enough to realize that Pier 42 is a nice place where we will come back definately. The staff is friendly, the design is amazing, the furniture in the room is not only beautiful but also very convenient, the territory is cozy and beautiful. Cleaning was every day, really proper cleaning - towels, washing the floor etc. If we come to Phuket again, we will stay at Pier 42 for sure!

I stayed for a couple nights at what tuned out to be a fantastic boutique hotel, literally hidden away. Rooms all very peaceful set in a tropical garden with a colonial feel. My room was w beautifully decorated and equipped with full size bean bag for relaxing - a great idea.
Breakfast was delightful - served in 'the library' a bright open setting with an array of eclectic furniture. The food was simple and tasty..

Spa was quite nice - thai massage - and the adjacent homeware store was a real find.... will definitely go back and relax for a few days with friends... absolutely worth a visit

My friend and I stayed in Pier 42 for one night recently. We absolutely loved the place: the decor was beautiful, each room was really nicely done, and the swimming pool was lovely too. There's lots of space to sit around and relax, which was just what we needed. The breakfast was good, so all-in-all very good value for money.

We also had a traditional Thai massage, which was very good.

The staff were all very friendly.

And I personally loved the craft shop...
A great stay!

Having visited Chalong previously I did not expect much but booked this online via their website.
Was really pleased at the hotel. Very cool style and once inside very quiet with a nice pool area. Room was nice with free Wifi and cable TV.
Eggs Benedict option w/ included breakfast was v nice also can highly recommend the Doi Chaang coffee at their cafe and design store.
