4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

Nice pools, friendly staff, resort living. Happy hour on the rooftop bar was nice. The breakfast was good but by the end of the week to same-same. Our young teenagers loved the whole place and made some friends in the pool.
As always in Thailand, the gardens were lovely, neat and beautiful.
Looked at past reviews and we didn't have any issues with transport, booked our own taxi out.
Short 15 minute walk into town and walking along the beach into town was even nicer.
Phunawa has a bus that drops you at the beach near the hotel, pointless really. It would be better if the bus did a circuit..a couple of stops at various points on the beach and then the town centre. The bus sits outside reception all day unused.
We got a heavily discounted price so it was very good value for the money.

Highly recommend this resort. Never been so happy before. This is a Cozy resort, as we booked a one bedroom suite, it comes with a huge Kitchenette even with a huge fridge and also an Oven.
The aircon is impressing, quiet and cool!

The best part is the Private rooftop Jacuzzi....... enjoying it most. Although the location a little way of, but I got no problem at all having rented a car myself. I will not stay in other hotel rather than Phunawa resort the next time I visit Phuket.

All staffs and courteous, helpful and speaks good English. I love this resort sooooooo much!

Room Tip: Choose the suite with rooftop Jacuzzi.

We stayed here for a week in Mar last year, my husband, our son and myself. It was simply beautiful - the service, the location, the hotel, rooms, food, cleanliness...everything! To be very honest you can get more delicious food outside the hotel, but breakfast was sufficient for us. The rooms very spacious and comfortable. The service was amazing, as is anywhere in Phuket actually! Loved this place and would definitely stay here again.

Stayed at the Phunawa in March 2014, on our first visit to Phuket. We booked it as it was the daily deal on Expedia, and was too good to pass up!

We arrived at the hotel all hot from the weather, and were pleasantly surprised with the cold cocktail and towels we were presented with - what a great start to our stay at the Phunawa!

We then walked through the beautifully landscaped grounds and pool to our room, and another "wow" when we walked in! We had a beautiful, spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite, with a patio overlooking the pool. A full-sized fully equipped kitchen completed the suite. Beds were very comfortable, air conditioning worked great, and shower flow was good.

Prior to arriving, I was a bit concerned that the hotel was not located on the beach in Karon, but that turned out to be unwarranted. The hotel is only about an 8 minute walk to Karon town, and being away from the crowds was actually quite nice. We found the walk to town to be very safe (even at night), passing by several other hotels on the way.

Thai food is simply delicious, and we had some very good meals on the main street in Karon, and also at the Pacific Club Resort, which is the hotel located next door to the Phunawa,

We travelled with our 6 month old and 2 and a half year old. After having a terrible experience at another hotel we arrived to a fantastic welcome the room, a grand 2 bedroom suite was amazing, modern clean with individual air con in every room. Cots for the kids were great. The pool was perfect for kids with parts that were shallow enough for our 2 year old to play and stand up. Roof top bar was great to chill out. The staff couldn't do enough for us and would entertain the kids at dinner so we could enjoy our meals.
The resort is close enough to the centre of karon to walk to and to travel into patong to shop is not a massive expense.
All together it was a great experience at very reasonable cost. The new owners are really trying to ensure you get the full Thailand service experience
