Phuket Chaba Hotel
Ranked #46 of 55 Hotels in Kata Beach
Reviewed August 27, 2012

I've been to phuket 4 times.The recent visit was in August 2012. I stayed from 12th August till 22nd August 2012 with my girl friend at Chaba and enjoyed our stay thoroughly. It is walking distance from Kata beach and has many dining options near it. "Tips and Tours" opposite the hotel provide tours at competitive prices. Rainbow and her boss are friendly and sweet. We hired the personal car of theirs to Krabi . About the hotel, the rooms are good. The breakfast is fabulous. The staff is extremely friendly particularly the girl at the reception Supaporn ( Nui). They even kept our baggage for the period we went to Krabi . The pool is good and they have a nice pool bar. I would strongly recommend the hotel and will certainly stay there in my next visit to phuket.

Stayed 4 nights in late july 2012. Travelling with one 2 yrs old child we booked Studio Suite because of decent prices during low season and it was a really spacious room on the ground floor.

We walked from other hotel 1,5 km with our backbags and in the reception they served us cold drinks before starting to give us room which made us feel very welcome. :)

Chaba is very good located few hundred meters from the beach and next to night market area with only 5 mins walk to shopping areas and many restaurants. And quiet surroundings so you won't hear traffic into rooms. Nice garden like pool area with pool for children.

Very nice and friendly staff, good sevice! Breakfast was very good too.

I went to Phuket somewhere early July 2012. It was during a monsoon season, so it was raining most of the time. I should have checked the weather forecast before I planned my trip :(.. Anyway, about the hotel, the location is at Kata Beach, not exactly in of the beach but quite near about 5-10 minutes walk. When we got there we were socking wet because it was raining and it was well before the check-in time but they stil allowed us to check-early not to mention they also allowed us to check-out late, maybe because it was during low season. About the room, I booked the cheapest room that they got, but I was surprised with the price that I've paid I got a really nice room. Actually, I thought for that kind of money they will give a very small room but it wasn't like that. The room was kindda big with the normal stuff that you can find in a hotel. The staff were really friendly and helpful. There was one time I was hanging my diving booties at the toilet window but somehow it fell down and I couldnt get it. It was around 10pm but I still managed to get the help from a bunch of hotel staff. The hotel staf got a very long ladder to get my booties from the first floor. It was kindda embrassing but ive to get it that night because I need to use it the next morning.. :) The breakfast buffet was also nice with variety of food to choose. There are many shops that is within the walking distance to choose from. Just prepare your money and set your bargain face on. Overall I would definately going to stay here again for my next trip!!

We truly enjoyed our time at the Phuket Chaba hotel. It was convenient location. Walking distance to kata beach. Many restaurants to choose from. Including "margarita's" next door such great food, PIZZA...service and price. We ate there several times. There was a motor bike rental right across the street and they do tours too. "Rainbow" and her bosses there where very sweet and even when my traveling companion fell off his motorbike they were extremely helpful! We also did a half day tour with them which was great. But while in Phuket I recommend skipping the Honey farm it was just a sales ploy to lock people into buying outrageously priced honey.

We had one of the junior suites room 412 I think. Spacious. Lovely balcony overlooking the smaller swimming pool. Breakfast was ample not overly vegetarian friendly but enough to get by on. Staff were helpful. Quick walk to the beach.

Stayed here for a week at the start of our family holiday, had the pool to ourselves most of the time and rarely ate out as the food was particularly good. Service friendly and rooms well equipped and clean. People left you alone to get on with things. Walk to the beautiful beach ten minutes. Can only recommend it here.

Room Tip: We had the little bungalow at the back with two bedrooms, close to pool and very private, a little o...

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"
