“Fantastic hotel by the sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Very nice hotel by the sea, with great swimming pool. We stayed for 5 nights and found the place to be fantastic. Pool area is overlooking a the sea and the grounds are well kept with beautiful flowers and tropical trees. Room is very spacious and clean. All rooms have a balcony or outside private space. Very nice touch are the little complementary snacks served every night during evening room service. There is also a morning room cleaning cleaning service. Complementary water tea and coffee in the room. Two min from the beach and close by activities. Staff is very friendly and go the extra mile. Wifi was very good in the room and around the garden, pool area and beach. Breakfast is extensive with a wide selection of thai and continental food, they even have baked beans and sausages, if you need to! Very relaxing place, many thanks to all the staff for a great stay.

Room Tip: Rooms on a higher floor have better views.

This place is in a perfect location - its close to other resturants, the town and has bikes to take for free to explore the area. This place is spotless! The food, breakfast the pool is great. The only thing is that there is no real beach directly in fron of the hotel you have to walk 200m or so to swim but this is no proble.
Checkin and check out was seemless and the staff wonderfully helpful and friendly. i only wish i could have stayed longer!

We stayed here at the end of season (Apr 2014), and loved it. The resort is well designed and maintained, but it's the staff that really make this place awesome. Thailand has many great resorts with amazing staff, but these guys really raise that bar.

I did have one complaint though - we ended up staying only 6 out of the 7 nights that we booked - we had to leave because the wifi is slow and I had to send some files across - but I wasn't refunded the last night, with the excuse being 'policy', which left a bad taste in my mouth as we left.

Outside of that, I had a great time, thanks.

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms on the ground floor at the back have poor light and even worse wifi. I don't kn...

We travelled to Phuket for a friends wedding and wanted somewhere quiet for a few days break afterwards. We chose Chong Fah based on Tripadvisor rating and we were not disappointed. This place is very relaxing with only a small number of guest rooms. The staff are really friendly and keen to do whatever you ask but they are not pushy and in your face. The breakfast was really enjoyable and the evening meals and drinks from the bar are excellent and very reasonably priced compared to going outside of the hotel. We think it is a must to have the sea view bungalows as they offer privacy and dedicated sun loungers as well as the sea view. The beach itself is nothing to write home about but the infinity pool at the hotel is great. There are more sun loungers than guests and there is no rush to reserve beds by anyone. When we stayed most of the guests were from Germany and Switzerland and it is clear that the resort is geared towards tourists from Europe. The only reason for writing this is to say if you are looking for British or Aussie people to hook up with and party then this may not be the place for you. Taxis to Khao Lak centre are available outside and inexpensive if you fancy getting out to eat or go to the market which is on 3 days a week. In summary take a few books and some DVD's to watch when you retire for the evening and you will have a great time (there is a book and DVD library at the hotel provided free of charge). Oh and another thing the wireless internet connection in the hotel rooms and grounds was absolutely excellent. I will definitely go back to Chong Fah

Room Tip: The Sea View bungalows are a must

Make that 189!. Although we only came from Hong Kong, bad planning on my part meant that we'd spent nearly 12 hours travelling including a slightly fraught transfer at Bangkok (I'd forgotten just how massive that airport is!). We were, therefore, a little tired and bothered when we finally arrived in our room but that tiredness quickly evaporated when we saw just how lovely it was.

There is obviously a good reason why this is rated #1 on TA for the area. It's stunning: a boutique hotel, immaculately designed and maintained with personal touches and smiling staff. The pictures on the hotel website don't begin to do it justice and we loved the private, outdoor shower and bath/ jacuzzi.

It is true that the hotel doesn't have much of a beach although the sea is accessible and anyway I'm not sure why anyone would want to stray too far from the infinity pool and bar. Each evening, before heading off to the bright lights for supper we would sit and watch the sun set with a cocktail or a cold beer and then, on our return, enjoy a nightcap with the silver moon reflecting off the calm sea and no more than the lapping of the waves on the shore to disturb the peace.

Room Tip: The beachfront rooms are obviously the best but if you can't get in there (or they are too expen...

Stayed here in Jan.2012, but I can see from the ratings the place hasn't changed a bit. We stayed over New Year's Eve, and the staff put on a fantastic dinner and show. The breakfasts were amazing, the pool relaxing, and with the beach right on your door step you can always go for a walk or dip in the ocean. Fantastic place to relax in Khao Lak....

I so agree with the other reviewers on this resort, it is small and that is one of the great benefits in my view. We always found the staff smiling and completely dedicated to giving the best service and have pride in the resort. The food was fantastic and the staff in there especially the head of staff there [unfortunately can't remember his name] but found them all so lovely and so helpful. It is located close to other restaurants... I would go back again in a heart beat...
