Absolutely brilliant - Peter and his team couldn't have been more helpful. We stayed for a week and wished we could have stayed longer! I would recommend to anyone visiting Phuket who is looking for a quieter more relaxed vibe.

Spent a week at Chava on a fitness retreat and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, Peter and Sharon made us feel extra welcome and helped with our transport and local eating experiences as well as the lovely restaurant they have by the pool at Chava.

Dear Rogie61 -thank you for your comments about your recent stay with us here at The Chava. Phuket is a great spot for a fitness retreat, even during our low season- in fact it's probably better then, with cooler temperatures and less humidity. Our pool certainly still got plenty of use by your group. Thanks also for highlighting our staff,... More

I’ve stayed at the Chava twice, and would thoroughly recommend it. The accommodation is clean, private and very spacious. The staff, facilities, and services are excellent. It has a great location that’s walking distance to the beach and lots of restaurants, convenience-shops, cafes and bars. The Chava’s food (at its pool-side restaurant) is also excellent. I would definitely recommend the... More

This was my second stay at the Chava and it was equally as enjoyable as the previous year...from the airport collection right up to my departure. The accomodation is very spacious, clean with very comfortable beds. There is a restaurant offering some amazing Thai food along with the usual international food. Chava is located at Surin Beach, in a great... More

The level of attention we received at the Chava resort was unmatched. The hotel facilities, location, rooms and service were fantastic. The apartments are phenomenal. Modern, very tastefully appointed, and very well maintained. This is definitely a great place to stay in Phuket that meets the highest expectations.

Stayed 1.5 weeks for a family holiday in the super sized penthouse (2 bed rooms). Fantastic room with full facilities. It was perfect for a family unit like ours. Great for relaxing. I believe this is a small all-residence hotel but it hits well above its weight. Although there is only one restaurant, the food is excellent. Staff are very... More

We stayed at Chava in August, enjoying a great off-season discount, and loved everything about it. The 2-bedroom family apartments are fabulously comfortable and well-equipped.
