“great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

we stayed 8 nights in January at the Navatara. The staff were always very helpful in this family owned, new hotel. Rooms clean and fresh, breakfast buffet was fully stocked and had all the varieties covering both European and Asian tastes, plus the option of freshly cooked eggs. The pool is a good size and was never very busy. The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the Rawai main street. I would definitely stay there again.

It's been my second my time to Rawai and first to Navatara.

We had a lovely stay, we booked the deluxe room (the cheapest one). The room itself was nice. Average size but had all the amenities needed. The bathroom was definitely the highlight of the room. It was beautiful, clean and modern. There were a few ants to contend with but, you're in a country where there are trying the best. We didn't have a useable balcony which was the only negative, though this was out fault for booking the cheapest room not the hotels.

The breakfast was great. Plenty of choice. Juices and chocolate milk and water. Lots of cereals, fruit, pastries and breads.

For the warm food a selection of Thai dishes, different every day. Plus, they make your eggs as you choose: omelette, fried, scrambled etc. As well as a couple of other western items.

Fresh coffee and tea on the hot plate and some other alternative choices.

The pool is really nice and peaceful. There are only a 12 sun loungers and 37 rooms (although 6 of the rooms have pool access and their own loungers).

Cleaners are thorough and reception staff polite. We had a slight issue at check in but it was resolved really quickly.

All in all, would most definitely stay here again. Just wouldn't pay more than £50 a night for the deluxe room. Would pay more for a room with a balcony though.

We were a family of 5 - grandparents, son, daughter I law and 16 month grand daughter. The staff were so obliging and friendly. Excellent rooms, great pool, great complimentary breakfast, in fact everything was first class. Complimentary service to local beaches was a big plus. Value for money definitely when comparing to other hotels in area. When management found out my 60 birthday they purchased cake and presented to me beside pool with a birthday song !!! All unnecessary and unexpected but very good of them. Yanui, the local beach, is a perfect spot. The best cafe/restaurant for food and service is one hundred metres away - value for money and excellent service. Great local bar is The Boss which is on way to Yanui, a 5 minute walk. Would def return to Navatara as so well located and what it offers.

We are spending 5 nights here after 5 at foto hotel at Kata Noi. Ok the view is not the same, BUT the amazing service and smiles here makes up for it. Lovely, clean Thai style room which is exactly the experience we wanted. Beautiful breakfast, close to Yanui Beach (great for kayaking) and Rawai (perfect location to hire longtail boat and the best seafood in phuket) and the staff will take you to these places on demand for free. Although we always wanted to tip them. For our next stay we will be booking a pool access room. We are in rm 225 and although it still has a good pool view, i am loving those private sunlounges at the bottom. A lovely end to a perfect wedding anniversary. Thank you Navatara. Kindest regards BB (:

This is a gorgoeus hotel, welcome smiles welcome fruit place and just typical thai service. I have been here for 4 nights 2 more to go. I randomly found it online search. I am at phuketfit doing a detox and I just realized it's the same hotel they send their guests to when their bungalows are full. This is a much better option than phuketfits best villa for almost the same price. It's almost 5 star boutique hotel. The rooms are thai modern, ample space, gorgeous open bathroom with a big tub. It's got a nice balcony with table and chairs looking into the pool. Small spa with great massage and street prices not exorbitant hotel rates. The staff absolutely out do themselves, especially the two who work days on the desk this week. They go out of their way to help you. (I want to steal them) also provided is a few free night tours and free taxi to the beach even if it's not on their drop off schedule. Also note they actually dripped me off and picked me up happily from a local cooking class. It's a 5 minute walk to rawai beach, however, this is not a swimming beach it is a boat service beach to all the islands. The hotel is within walking distance to banks restaurants and bars. It is far from town and getting to and from phuket town and patong is 500 baht. The swimming beach is 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk. They give you loads of information about tours and activities outside. The drivers are so sweet and helpful. What else can I say. Ok the negatives.. Not many but, the pool was much smaller than I imagined from the image, however still gorgoeus. there is no direct telephone line to make outside calls however, in one minute the receptionist was up with a mobile phone for me to make the call. I needed assistance after 12am and no one mans the desk, but that would be my only critique. In any hotel big or small there should be for many reasons, someone on the desk. Wonderful place, extremely peaceful and quite, small boutique modern yet still holding traditional thai style, and very well run ps pillows a bit to hard f me but hey that's just me.
