3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Great location, swim up bar and variety of pools are the positives of this hotel. However, it is in no way what I consider to be 4 or 5 star. After emailing the hotel in advance to enquire about the 'free airport transfer' advertised on their website, we heard absolutely nothing back and made our own way there. This was... More

We stayed here for 10 days as a family. Had an "A" and "B" room close to reception. We had to check in a bit early due to our flight, not a problem. We also got to swim in the pool when we checked out due to a later flight. The staff were lovely. Very friendly and helpful. Although we... More

We stayed at Thavorn Palm from 5Aug to 11 Aug (a group of 8 adults). The staff was extremely friendly. I simply HAVE to mention Orawan (who served us on most days at the swim-up pool bar). She was definitely the highlight of our stay there. A special thank you to her for her hospitality, warmth, and good-nature. Rooms were... More

I can safely say my first, and last visit to Phuket was ruined by this hotel. Horrible service, management, rooms and animal cruelty left a very sour taste in my mouth. I've learned not to trust booking.com reviews and hotel star ratings as a result of staying in this hotel. My first night I was placed a room located in... More

I was staying this "five stars" hotel with my friend. We choose the most simple room but the room is noisy and can hear guest's voice from other rooms. They provided welcome drinks but the reception staff was not friendly. The room is far a way from reception and breakfast restaurant was so far a way from our room. It... More

This hotel has a lovely charm, it's gardens are beautiful and well kept with small animals roaming freely and 5 great pools to choose from. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable, sweetly (feminine decor) decorated. The staff were very helpful from check in to check out.

The best and predominant feature of this place is the very impressive garden, which is extensive and reminds me of an old palace built in a jungle. We stayed in three standard rooms which were dissappointing. The bathrooms were basic 3 star and while the rooms were OK the outlook was terrible, and we ended up moving chairs out the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just a few steps from Karon Beach at an unrivalled beachfront location, Thavorn Palm Beach Resort offers colonial style rooms set amidst lush, tropical gardens, 45 mins from Phuket International Airport, 10 mins from Patong Beach and close to major attractions. Having dedicated most of the extensive grounds to green areas, the peaceful grounds feel secluded, yet with local bars, restaurants and amenities within easy walking distance, you are never isolated and enjoy the best of both worlds. ... more   less
