Pro:The apartment is beautifully decorated with seaview. All staff there very are helpful , hard working and welcoming - the apartments were clean, safe and location suited my needs perfectly , anything I needed the staff were happy to assist.
Cons:The aircon needs fixing. The beach where you can swim is a bit far and you need take a taxi or tuk tuk. Swimming pool is close @ 2100 ( a bit early)
We stayed 3 days/nights at Rawai Beach as the perfect starting point for exploring the fantastic islands outside Phuket and Phang Nga bay. We found this very nice and well maintained Almali studio apartment on TripAdvisor. The apartment is actually located on the fourth floor on Rawai Seaview Hotel, which was somewhat confusing coming there. Be advised that there is no breakfast restaurant at the hotel, but the apartment had all necessary amenities for self catering, and a nice balcony with seaview where you can have breakfast on your own conditions. About Rawai Beach then, you could argue that there is in fact not much of a beach, more a parking lot for long tail boats and speed boats that in the evenings are stranded due to the tidal water.
Very nice place. Very clean and well kept. Jasmine and Ray very kind and helpful. Would definitely go back. Nice central location, good pool and friendly staff
Spent a fantastic month at Seaview/Almali Residences... clean... astoundingly so. Attentive staff and a great host! The view was great and the apartment perfect for my needs. Being provided with a local mobile phone, free wifi and a plentiful supply of condiments is a great touch. The view from the villa is top notch... lovely to wake up and sit on the balcony and watch local beach life. There are abundant shops, bars and restaurants all within walking distance- and a pharmacist right next door. Rawai is away from the hustle and bustle of Chalong, Patong, Karon and Kata... but they are all within striking distance in a few minutes if you rent a car or scooter. Jasmine organized all my taxi transfers within minutes of asking and all staff were on hand if you needed any local tips. I'm very happy to recommend these accommodations to anyone... truly an awesome place!
