An awesome place in Phuket to chill out with friends, not right on the main street but a mere 5-7 minute walk from Patong beach. Also close to the family mart and Baan Kalim, a pretty good thai eatery. Villa atchara is quaint and cozy - not overrun with guests in August, if you're visiting in a group of 6-8 friends, chances are you'll have the pool to yourselves and roam the hotel much like a private estate. Very good value for money. Might seem a bit understaffed, and check in might be a bit slow, but rooms will be made up and cleaned on time. Breakfast is pretty nice, as is the view of the hills opposite to the hotel. Would recommend to any budget traveler.
