Phuket Chaba Hotel
Ranked #46 of 56 Hotels in Kata Beach
Reviewed June 21, 2012

The hotel is very close to Kata beach and in the mid of Karon and Kata Noi beaches.
It's total value for money considering the location and the facilities you get.
Easily accessible, we got a direct taxi from airport (Taxi-Meter: 500 THB) and the driver knew the name.
The staff was very courteous. Pool was clean. Breakfast was great!!! During one of the days of our stay we had most of the items with pork and since I have that so on my request they quickly prepared one chicken dish. Plenty of fresh fruits and youghurt. A good mix of Thai food as well.
In the street you have all kinds of restaurants including a rare Indian one (actually it's Pakistani :P ) but we never tried that as we became fond of Thai food.
They have for desktops near reception with internet connectivity so that's enough to give updates back home. Moreover they give big towels for beach and swimming pool.
I chose the basic room; didn't know it doesn't have a ceiling fan but on simple request they provided a standing fan.
Well I'll again say the staff was very very courteous!

My uncle recently went to Phuket with his fammily and I booked the same hotel for him. They all liked this hotel as well. No complaints!

Room Tip: "Good breakfast buffet" "Great service and location"

hotel is ok, but...
it is amazing what you can do with a good photographer and photoshop.

+ good value/money deal
+ in the center of kata beach (restaurants, bars etc..)
+ not as noisy as we thought

- no view
- far from beach
- rooms are not like in photos
- there's a pond in the backyard in the fotos... in reality it looks more like a swamp

The room is quite big, clean and very comfortable. And it's very cheap! I've been to Phuket several times and I always stay there. The staff are very friendly, they have a great service mind. They helped me a lot as i remember. The first time I've been there, I rode motorcycle to the viewpoint alone and on the way back down from the hill I found out that my back tire went flat... you know "on the hill" in the evening. In the middle of no where.... I had no choice so I had to call the hotel... T.T finally, they came and picked me up without charging any single baht. I was very impressed .. after that day I always stay there whenever I go to Phuket. :) The breakfast was okay and the area is very relax and a lot of restaurants and bar are near but you have to walk a bit or just rent a bike which you can ask from the reception. ^0^

For what you pay, they offer comfortable rooms and a good breakfast. You got your choice of eggs, fruit, bacon, rice, veggies, bread, pancakes, and juices. Room furnishings were good, with a small desk and stool, wardrobe, night stands.

The day time staff was very friendly. They had 4 computers in the lobby for internet and wifi in rooms. They have their own restaurant but there are plenty of other choices on the same street. At the end of the street is a walkway that goes to the beach. Watch out, the walk is stinky!

The hotel pools and grounds are beautiful. They have a bar and patio, and can eat lunch there or eat at your beach chair.

I checked out of a disappointing stay at Kata Orient House to stay here. Even though it was more than 50% more expensive, the high season walk-in rate of B 2,000 per night was still much better value than at the Kata Orient.

The Chaba is pretty new and modern, the staff are professional and helpful. They will book taxis for you at reasonable rates too (can be quite a chore in Phuket).

The free internet works fine in the rooms and no arguing about whether 1 or 2 people can use it per room. :) The rooms are small with no views but they are at least modern.

The swimming pool is large enough to swim in, and the buffet breakfast has a good choice of foods supplemented by requests if you are vegetarian.
