My overall stay at Thavorn was amazing and I would highly recommend the hotel to people who are looking for a nice beach resort stay in Phuket.
Environment – Thavorn is a unique hotel in that the resort is built to mirror a beautiful jungle/garden. During my stay, walking around the resort, we saw roosters, local birds, and cute bunnies roaming nicely in the grass area of the resort grounds. It really makes for a nice experience and adds to the character and environment of the resort.
Location – Great location, a little bit away from Patong beach and main town area which is good as it’s more quiet. The hotel also has it’s own private beach which is a great plus so you can avoid the crowds at Patong beach. If you do want to check out different beaches, the hotel has a convenient shuttle to and from Patong beach and hotel as well.
Room – Our room was very clean and comfortable. Exactly what I wanted for a getaway in Phuket. I had the room with balcony area and pool access, which had a great view of the pool and beach and which was convenient when I wanted to go for a swim right from my room. The landscape of the pool area is also very well planned with waterfalls and gardens in the middle.
Spa – My friend and I got the classic Thai massage on the menu during our stay. This is a mix of oil massage and Thai traditional massage methods. The message therapist were highly skilled, and tailored it to the focus spots I asked for. The spa facilities were clean and relaxing.
Breakfast buffet every morning was great. There were a variety of food options (American and Thai). The eggs for the omelet are fresh (from the chickens/roosters at the resort!) They also have a couple restaurants on the resort for some beach front dining options.
Room Tip: “We enjoyed the room with pool access, the beach cottages also looked very nice as well for families or couples looking for more privacy”
