Summer Breeze Inn Hotel
Ranked #16 of 90 Hotels in Phuket Town
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Having read previous reviews of Summer Breeze inn and its owner Manit I decided to take the chance of spending our first 2 nights there before moving on on our journey in Thailand. We are very happy we did! It was, as many others have written, a perfect introduction to Thailand! Travelling with my wife and our 1.5 year old child who had never been to Thailand before I wanted their introduction to the country to be as subtle and safe as possible - which it definately was! It was also an authentic experience in many ways: except for the wonderful contact with Manit and his Family, the location is on the edge of town - making it a more laidback place in an otherwise hectic city. We also chose to let him organize picking us up from the airport - which we are glad we did: until one is streetwise in Thailand this can be a good idea. He can also organize trips around - which we would have done if we had more time. Clean comfortable rooms - restaurants around the corner - quiet street - friendly people - safe feeling - lots of interesting information about Thailand and the thai way of life .makes this a very good place to start or stay in "the land of smiles"! Adding a big "Thank you" in a review is unusual but in this case it says much about the accomodation and its host!

Room Tip: the rooms on the second floor have a balcony - the rooms on the ground floor (Scuba) have chairs on...

At first we booket the hotel for 3 days only, and where planning to move around Phuket in the 14 days we were there. We ended up staying there for 11 days. I have never had such a warm welcome at a hotel before. Manit, the hotel owner is a warm and generous man who includes you and take care of you, and he speaks english very well. He had birthday one of the days we where there, and he invited us to join him and his family and friends and neighburs in this private street barbeque thai style. The hotel has only got 5 rooms, and it is located in a very quiet street, maybe 3-4 km from Phuket town centre. The only bad thing is that the taxi drivers had some problem finding the hotel, because its not that big, and its location is very thai. But it was not really a problem, because we only called Manit, any time, and he would either explain the taxi driver in thai, or he would drive us or come pick us up whenever we wanted. He knows about everything and everyone, in Phuket, so if you need tickets or whatever, he will arrange for you. The rooms have got aircon, and hot water in the shower. And a nice balcony to sit in and have a beer in the evening. I have only positive experience, and I think, if I travel to Phuket one more time, I would surtenly stay at the summer breeze inn again.

My husband and I were lucky enough to book a room with Manit at Summer Breeze Inn. Our only complaint would be that we didn't book more than one night. Manit and his family are welcoming and pleasant to be around. We had a great time there. Note: it is off the beaten path a bit but well worth it!! Thank you Manit for great hospitality!

We stayed here overnight after arriving extremely late in Phuket from the US. The rooms are small but as others have noted the value is exceptional. Most of the folks staying when we were there were longterm guests using the hotel as a base to explore the region. Manit, as others have noted, is exemplary in the attention and assistance he offers his guests. We purchased ferry and airport transfers through him and were very well served. The neighborhood the hotel is in is residential but there is a small fishing village about ten minutes away. Highly recommended for those transiting Phuket or those looking for a safe and economical base to explore the region.

Had a great stay at Summer Breeze Inn with Manit and his family. We had a tour booked to do a Sea Canoe trip that started at 1pm. As we were coming off the ferry from a stay in Koh Phi Phi Manit picked us up at the Pier and drove us directly to the tour in order for us to make it in time. Manit took all our belongings back to the Inn for us and gave us a larger room as we had quite abit of luggage. Manit also arranged the sea canoe trip for us before we arrived in Phuket Town. Manit speaks excellent english and has a cell phone so it is easy to get ahold of him if needed.

The area is in a residential area and we had a room on the second floor with a balcony overlooking the street. We only stayed here one night but it would have been nice to have stayed longer. Manit made us feel very welcomed and toured us around the Inn. He helped with any questions we had and was very accommodating. We had a small breakfast before leaving in the morning for the airport, which Manit arranged transportation for us. We were the only ones in the Inn the night we stayed so it was quiet and relaxing for us. As we had a big trip during the day this was a nice place to come back to.

There was a mini bar and snack area in the common area, books to read, movies to watch etc. As we arrived late after our trip we did not take advantage of this but it would have been nice had we had more time here. The room was clean and comfortable with air conditioning and our own bathroom.

Definately good value for what we paid. Would recommend this place for someone that wants a unique experience and not a standard hotel.

One thing to mention is it is abit hard to find as it is in a residential area. The taxi drivers had a very hard time finding the place as they thought it was a larger resort we were staying at. Make sure someone is picking you up that knows where this place is located or have Manit arrange transportation for you.

Overall great place! Would definately return.

Room Tip: We had The Sails room on second floor with the balcony.

While our actual stay was not long we appreciated the care given by Manit the owner. Transportation was arranged, a pleasant breakfast and some basic Thai lessons given willingly. A nice intro to Thai hospitality.
