Weather & Airport Shuttle in September in Cherngtalay?


I was just wondering a few things. We will be staying at the Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort in Cherngtalay from the 31st of August to the 8th of September. I have read that is the low/monsoon season but I'm so sure as to what this entails, I've read some places that this may just mean an hour of heavy rain perhaps just once during our stay, that doesn't reason sound right though to be called a monsoon season to me, so I'm just asking to verify. Also does this mean that the beach it's situated on, we won't be able to swim in?

My second question is asking the best/cheapest method of transportation from the Phuket International Airport to this resort and area, this would be based on a fare for ten adults, three children between the ages of 4 and 10, and two children under the age of 2?

Is there anything else I should know, as this is my first visit to Thailand.

Thank you

Perth, Australia

Hi, Just read your message and we are from Perth WA and we are staying in Salafa villa which is just down the road. The monsoon season can bring heavy rain for days in a row as at the beginning of our stay or an hour a day as you have heard. As we are in a such a wonderful villa (6 double bed rooms) set up like a home with cook, driver, TV, the rain has not spoilt our holiday. We have stayed at Salafa a few times - always great with fun, kind staff who can organise whatever we need. We have had the use of a big mini bus (seats 14) with driver who met us at the airport and been available our whole trip.

Everything is available here so don't overload your suitcase. Have a great holiday!
