My boyfriend and I visited Thailand for 3 weeks back in June. We flew from Bangkok to Phuket, only to be surprised that the hotel we had initially booked in Patong Beach was very um, minimal and in an area that was too much commotion for us. We changed hotels to the Chanalai in the Kata/Karon area and it was... More

Sizeable resort but doesn't feel like it with accommodation spread out over the hillside. 2 great pools and a well equipped gym - really handy in the rainy season! Only eat in the hotel at breakfast but was more than satisfied. Wide selection of international food with live chef at the egg station. We were offered a breakfast box when... More

I booked a Deluxe Sea View room for two nights and checked in today, and was really looking forward to my stay based on all the positive reviews on here.... More

This resort is 2 minutes walk (if that) from the beach. It's the south end of Kata beach which after visiting almost all of the local beaches south of Phuket it's by far the prettiest part we have found. Staff are awesomely friendly. Accommodate is great. Beds are Thai style so are quite firm. The only other drawback are there... More

VIsited Phuket from 6th September till 9th September with my partner.We booked the hotel through booking.com 1-2 weeks before our arrival which totalled up to around only 625 ringgit for 3 nights excluding tax and other charges which is quite reasonable. Upon arriving at the airport, we took the minivan to the hotel which was cheaper, however mind that there... More
