“Perfect and Excellent service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

This hotel should be 5 star hotel, exclusive rooms with big screen tv connected to computer so you could connect With family and friends easy, also you can catch up a movie if you would like to..

Just a short walk from the beach and and also quiet..
Basically everything was perfect with this hotel, professional staff, great breakfast and staff was SO helpful, the water in the pool was so clean you could drink it. not to mention the rooms, i travel alot, and this rooms was the coolest i have ever seen! Flintstones style :)

Extra thanx to the “French” guy who runs the hotel.

My friend and I had a 2-night stay at the Pandora Hotel. Nice location on North Chaweng (close to night-life, without the noise), even if you have to cross the main road to reach the beach (which is actually monopolized by other properties). The manager was smart and gave us advices about restaurants and local hints. Huge breakfast (especially the pancake), served professionally by the local staff. The room was clean, nice with a colourful decoration. Definitely a good value for money original hotel.

The owner yannick and his wife are so lovely they really make sure you have the best stay while your there and nothing was ever to much trouble for them. We rented a bike off him which I really recommend for getting around the island, always go with the hotel as a lot of the rental places like to scam. The rooms are nice and clean and the breakfast is nice in the morning.

Great hotel. Upgraded free of charge. Owner and his wife were super friendly. The hotel is just the right distance from all the commotion. The hotel is great to look at during the day and sensational at night. The room was clean, comfy and colourful. The overall design of the hotel is truly unique. Breakfast was just right and all of the staff were friendly. The beach was only a 4 minute walk. Thank you Yannick. (excuse the spelling).

My partner and I stayed at Pandora in February 2012 and loved it so much that we couldn't resist coming back on our trip through Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam this year.
The hotel has had some renovations done throughout the outdoor areas and it looks amazing! Last year we thought that the hotel was so awesome in it's design but now it looks even better!!! The rooms are still looking amazing and the new gardens have inspired us with ideas of what we would like to do to with our home.
This time at Pandora there were some new staff members which were so friendly and accommodating! We felt very spoilt :D Nut, in particular was amazing with helping us with anything we needed and was just so easy to get along with. You could talk to her for hours :) and that cocktail you made us, was the best I've ever had!! And Yannik - it was so good to see you again and we can't thank you enough for such an awesome stay! We're already thinking about our next visit!!
Out of all the hotels we've stayed in, this one still takes number 1 on our list!
If you want to meet beautiful people, experience an awesome hotel and be close enough to everything you need, Pandora is perfect!

Upon check in into Pandora we were personally greeted by Yannick the owner, who immediately made us feel incredibly welcome. We were upgraded into the main room over looking the pool which was a quite a nice view. The decor in the room itself was quite different to anything I've ever stayed in, which made the stay an interesting and fun experience. The room is equipped with a computer hooked up to a new LCD TV, and this computer has access to a large range of movies, music, Skype and the net which was a pretty cool touch. The bed was quite large, albeit a little firm but you get used to it. The shower and bathroom were spacious and were more than sufficient, and the changing coloured lights above the bed were another typical quirk of the room.

Breakfast was great each day and to my suprise they served Espresso rather than the standard brewed coffee you find in the majority of places in Thailand, that in itself made the breakfast for me! The selection of jams and pastries were also great.

We didn't swim in the pool but it looked quite nice wrapping around the internal bar area.

The hotel also provided beach towels when went for the short stroll to the beach.

Lastly, another special mention to Yannick who posted back my friends necklace after finding it in our room after we checked out, so all in all the stay was fantastic and I'd definitely head back there again if in Chaweng.

A group of us stayed here for two nights. It's a very comfortable and good value for money hotel across from the beach and a short walk into town. The owner, Yannick, is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast, in particular, is great (crepes were the bet I've tasted). We stayed in the rooms above the reception. They were very clean, the bed was comfortable and wifi was strong. Difficult to fault if you want a nice homely stay in Chaweng.
