“good value little place”
Reviewed May 9, 2009

After feeling we needed to get away from Patong beach, we looked for a good value place on Karon Beach. Although the Thai Elephant guest house was a little way back from the beach, we very much enjoyed our stay of 3 days their.

The guesthouse is only two rooms on each of its 3 levels, but all rooms are very large, and very clean. The bed was the most comfortable of our 10 weeks away, and the power shower was excellent We were the only guests, and the staff were helpful and friendly our whole stay.

Breakfast was limited to eggs and toast, but was good all the same.

The back rooms have small balcony that will fit 1 person on, and we used this regularly to pickup some wireless Internet (as the guesthouse doesn't offer any)

It wasnt a giveaway price wise, but was reasonable value

We stayed at this newly opened guest house for 5 weeks and were their first guests!
The rooms are all gorgeous and feel very luxurious after 3 weeks of low cost hotels and hostels in Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. Its so great to have a power shower and hot water and the rates are really reasonable.
The staff are great and we have eaten in the restuarant downstairs many times. They offer a range of thai and international dishes - even brussel sprouts!
Our room was really quiet and we were never disturbed by traffic or bars, despite its central location. It's just a 5 minute stroll to Karon beach, which is by far the nicest beach in Phuket.

  • Liked — The piping hot power shower and the staff
  • Disliked — Leaving!
