“Pretty good budget rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2012

Stayed here about 10 days ago. Had the budget room right at the back but that was fine and right near the pool. I liked the room even though the aircon kept freezing up. Think they set it too low! Tried to check in early as I wasn't feeling too well however Robert, the European receptionist, was adamant our room would be occupied until 12 and then had to be cleaned. Fair enough, I only asked because I was feeling sick. After checking in found lots of vacant rooms so no bouquets for Robert. I am sure his duty statement would mention "flexibility" .

Although the room was fairly cheap I wouldn't stay again. If I have to walk that far to my room I would prefer to stay at Pensiri House, which is about the same distance and half the price. Also, I found it difficult to watch American movies dubbed into Russian - just seemed to be lacking something. The hotel seems to cater for the Russian market as the menu is in English then Russian.

This was the third time we have stayed at Nai Yang Beach Resort and it has always been good. Reception staff can be a bit distracted and slow but all other staff are very friendly and helpful. The reception porter actually helped us and urged the receptionist to speed up the check in. We booked in the Tropical wing but were upgraded to Thai room in the new block. Very nice room with lots of space. The resort is very convenient for a next-morning flight. Only 10 mins in a taxi to the airport. Also very close to the beach and resteraunts where there is a great 'rustic' atmosphere with timber framed bars and resteraunts with sand between your toes as you eat & drink right on the beach. Will definately stay again.

It was our second stay at the Nai Yang Beach Resort and we think it has been rebuilt a bit since our last stay. It is the perfect place to stay the final days of a holiday with only 5 minutes to the aiport. We were upgraded and had a very nice room. The breakfast is very good and the staff is friendly. Nice pool areas. A lot of restaurants in the beach and some souvenir shopping.
But: The hotel has a fenced area with 4-5 big turtles and we could not help feeling sorry for them in this limited area with just a little puddle of water (approx 1 sqm) to enjoy themselves in. If the resort have to have the turtles at all, it would be nice if they offered them a decent water area.

We stayed at this close to airport hotel overnight to catch an early flight out.
Rooms very great sparse but nice with a sitting nook and patio and great beds. We left and returned as our flight to Bali got cancelled due to passport expiration back to the hotel. Where they immediately offered us an upgrade and we enjoyed a further 4 nights there. Great breakfast buffet and exquisite garden surroundings very quiet and offering 3 pools . Lovely place.

We stayed 5 nights in a Thai Mini Suite that was not far from the front desk. I actually like the little extra front room for leaving sandy shoes and towels and a place to read while someone else sleeps. It was on the 2nd floor; however one of the other wings may have had a more decorative room. The photos look very color-full, but our room seemed rather white and dull. We didn’t leave the curtains open a lot because the window faced a walkway and was a clear shot into the room. We paid about 120USD/night. I think if you can get it for half or 2/3 that rate it would be a better deal. The term “Resort” is not accurate. The room was clean and basic. Shower water nice and hot all the time and I did like the set up with separate WC. With all the sand from the beach it would have been nice if the floors were swept and /or mopped when the room was tidied – even if only every other day. It was not done once in 5 days. Our linens were never changed (which I normally would not mind, but we could tell once the sheets got a little sandy by the 2nd day). We would sometimes be gone for 3 hours in the morning but our room didn’t get tidied or new towels until later in the afternoon. No mosquitos in the room but spray before you go to the open lobby or breakfast area.

Breakfast is free and adequate buffet with Asian and western food, although not at all interesting or particularly tasty; coffee is not good. In the evening they have an Italian restaurant that I can’t imagine going to. The front desk staff is ok at checking in and out but not much help for anything else. They had no knowledge of Phuket Town (about 45 minute drive away) and were confused when I asked them to make a call for a dinner reservation. It just isn’t something they do. Staff was friendly but nothing extra as far as service goes.

The pool looks ok, but we did not use it. The beach is right across the village alley way. Here you can find tour/scuba booths, coffee places, food & bars (so many places have pizza?) and trinket shopping (not much to buy in this part of Phuket but mostly mass produced trinkets and beach stuff), minimart, massage places etc, tuk-tuks and taxis available there all the time.

The beach is public. Pay 150 Baht for beach chairs from the local vendor wherever you’d like to sit. We walked just a bit north and ended up at Mr. Poon’s. He is friendly and funny. We took a break from the sun and sat in his little shanty restaurant and had the best fried rice – fresh and tasty. We went back to Mr. Poon’s beach area 3 days in a row.
The Octopus on the beach street had tasty dinner and drinks (good chicken with ginger and good soup).

Best massage place is just to the left (south) of the hotel entrance by the mini-mart, there is a tailor and the snorkel tour booth there also right in front of the Indigo Pearl beach entrance. The massage place is nice and clean, has an upstairs for the full body massages that is a little more private – with curtains to separate the tables and a great breeze. Thai massage is about 300-400 baht.

This hotel seems like a good place for families: there is lots of room for running around, pool, some big turtles to look at close to the lobby; breakfast has bland choices for picky eaters and spaghetti for dinner, large fridge to keep any snacks and water you can buy at the minimart.
It is not a resort.
One more complaint: They nickel & dime you for the Wi-Fi in your room. It is free in the lobby with your own lap-top with a slowish connection (if you use one of their 2 computers it costs!) it isn’t terribly expensive but it added to the cheap feeling of the place.
Dewa had a nicer atmosphere and depending on when you book might have a good price. Indigo Pearl is fantastic – much more upscale but if you can get a room under 200USD then go for it (and if you can afford more it is worth it).

Our flight was leaving at 2:45am, so we stayed here for like a day and a half to be close to the airport. It is a nice resort and the workers there are very friendly and accommodating and you will find someone that speaks English. I ended up having a huge meal across the street at Mr. Kobi's bar (highly recommend you visit, it has great food, large portions, and unique personality) and it was no problem getting it reheated and eating it at the restaurant. I stayed in the tropical wing and in the room you have complimentary water and coffee/tea with a hot water boiler. The a/c was FREEZING so if you're into that, you'll love it. Nice hot shower was really nice, and we were even visited by a little lizard on the floor. There is also a small tv and you can get some English speaking channels - we watched a Desperate Housewives marathon for a few hours! They have a nice warm pool (actually they have 3, but we only visited one) perfect for the latter part of the evening when beach time is over. The one complaint is that they aren't too proactive about keeping mosquitos out, so when we checked into the room we had to kill some. Bring some spray and you'll be fine, but trust me you will get bitten out there more so than Patong or more touristy areas. Nai Yang beach is right across the street and it's super clean and laid-back, not many people everywhere trying to sell things, but there are way too many stray dogs around for my taste, so I prefer Patong/Kata...All in all, I'd definitely recommend a stay here for a day or two when needing to be close to the airport - it's only like a 5 min ride and for 200 baht they will arrange an on-time pickup for you.

Room Tip: Get a room in the 300s because it's closer to the lobby - I stayed in 021 and it was a hike to t...

I'm a bit torn here - in truth I guess it depends upon what you are comparing it with. Overall I would say that as a Phuket holiday base it probably merits an above average rating, but that is very much down to location - if focussing purely on hotel facilities/value for money, then "average" is about right.

Undoubtedly the hotel's most enduring asset is its location across the road from Nai Yang beach, and a plethora of decent quality / decent value local beach restaurants. We landed on Phuket at 4PM on New Year's Eve, and by 5PM we were walking on the beach, having collected our cases, cleared customs, jumped in a taxi, checked in to our room, freshened up and changed into T-shirt & shorts, having left the British winter behind the previous afternoon. We visited some of the other western beaches (Kata/Karon) later on our trip and much preferred the more laid back unassuming atmosphere at Nai Yang than either of them.

The other big plus point for us, and one of the main reasons we booked this particular hotel, was that we weren't compelled to book their New Year's Eve Gala Dinner, albeit some of the Internet booking sites suggest that this is compulsory, as indeed it is at many other hotels/resorts. Having just arrived following a couple of longish flights, we suspected that we wouldn't really be in the best of nick to take advantage of whatever was being laid on at what to us seemed rather exhorbitent prices (about £75 per head I think), and so it proved - being able to have an excellent leisurely meal (fantastic pineapple rice!) across the road on the beach after watching a glorious sunset, followed by an ad-hoc extensive fireworks display (which seemed to last for about 4 or 5 hours!) at a fraction of the cost was much more agreeable to us.

As for the hotel itself, it consists mainly of chalet-style accommodation - our room was the cheapest one available and was just about acceptable. The "wet room" area was a bit dark, and the main sleeping area was rather small, but it was comfortable enough if you weren't planning on spending too much time in it. It was quite a walk past the swimming pools, etc. to get to it from the small, open air, rather frenetic reception - not ideal on our last morning when it was pouring down with rain and we had to brave the elements to check out, although they did at least send a buggy up to collect our luggage. The other gripe we had was that there seemed to be a dearth of electrical plug sockets in the room - don't bank on using any more than a couple of electical appliances at any one time! The pools weren't spectacular but they were OK - unfortunately we were only there for 2 nights, and after our first evening the weather wasn't so great, although we did manage to chill out by one of them for a few dry (but cloudy) hours on our one full day there. Breakfast was a bit limited but again acceptable, as was the overall service from the staff.

In summary, I would say that if you are intent on staying on a west coast beach and don't want to break the bank, then this place probably compares favourably with most other options, and if I found myself back on Phuket for a short beach break I would have no hesitation in heading back to Nai Yang, although I would check out what alternative accommodation was available there. Having said that, whilst it might be on a par with similarly located resorts in terms of value for money, we paid about 25% less a few days later at the Westin Siray, and in comparison the rooms and facilities there are on another planet - now thats what I call true value for money!

Room Tip: It may be worth trying to get a room fairly close to the front of the hotel/reception if you are the...
