Real & notable Guest Reviews of Thavorn Beach Village Resort & Spa

  • "Absolutely amazing hotel!" Google.comnana serizawa, October Year 2023
    • Absolutely amazing hotel! Especially if you’re looking for somewhere you can do yoga every single day during your stay, I highly recommend this place. Sonia will be your wonderful yoga teacher. Her lessons make your day even more special and filled with lots of positive energy.
      The receptionists are always welcoming and very helpful. Polly and Tiffy especially, they gave me clear instructions and answers from the very first day I arrived. I mostly dined at Marisa restaurant while I was staying at the hotel. They serve great food. Must try. Mai was such a charming and friendly staff. I’d definitely come back with my family next time!

  • "Outstanding" Trip.comJanice, Septemper Year 2023
    • This is the best vacation I've ever had! My whole family was being taken good care of by the staff here. We enjoyed our stay here so much. Every staff wears a wonderful smile and makes you feel at home. I love the breakfast and the mini zoo. The animals are so cute and well trained. The resort has a private beach, a pool, a pier. You can also join their yoga and meditation courses. I really want to join the wellness center too but it's a little pricey. PS: the welcoming drinks are amazingly delicious. Thank you for everything. I will definitely come back again.

  • "Nothing short of EXCEPTIONAL" TripAdvisor ReviewMary Anne W, Johannesburg, South Africa Year 2018
    • From the minute we arrived at the airport and were welcomed to the day we were dropped off again we had service with a smile and more....Thanks to Sinead and her team. My family and I had the priviledge of enjoying 3 types of rooms during our stay at Thavorn from Dec 11 to Dec 26. We had Pool Access, Beach front and Cottage and depending on your preference they were all immaculate. The tranquility and serenity is a far cry from the hustle and bustle of Patong which is a mere 5k away. Nestled between lush gardens, Nakalay bay beachfront and the inviting pools you are surely spoilt for choice and your eyes are constantly filled with beauty. Days are spent just lounging around being fed with cocktails from the poolside bar and enjoying the endless views. Accompanied by personal service rendered by Sinead and team you can never ask for better. From tour bookings to finding lost phones or hats on the bus to persoñalized dinners on the beach. Sinead even went the extra mile as to open the restaurant OLD SIAM for us on Christmas eve as we did not part take in the Christmas festivities the resort had set up..... THANK YOU SI..you made our holiday extra special....You were always just a phone call away.Many thanks for all the chats and tea and in you absence thanks to Kim for taking the reigns. A special mention to Ple for housekeeping and although communication was a bit tough we succeeded. Beautiful grounds, Breathtaking views from the rooms , House keeping exceptio al, food mouthwatering......What more can I say but try Thavorn and bedazzled.

  • "Very kind staff, relaxing, beautifully landscaped gardens!" TripAdvisor ReviewAdventureangela2016, Los Angeles, California Year 2017
    • Thavorn Beach hotel in Kamala is a beautiful destination for being 'in the rain forest' if you want to ponder the beauty of tropical plants. Birds also are beautiful, and staff members in all parts of the hotel are especially kind, friendly, and accommodating! They are doing construction on one part of the pool; so if it is too loud, they can find another room for you. If the restaurant or pool music bass was too loud, immediately they apologized and turned it down. There are resident rabbits, kids can have a pony ride, and a man brings a baby elephant by to pet and take photos (50 baht for close-ups). My beach swim was lovely over on the right (North) side where there's more sand at high tide. Water warm, gentle waves, felt wonderful.
      People were also exploring the shallow coral at low tide (but it's against Thai law to collect any). A fabulous buffet breakfast is included in the hotel rate; and we ate dinner in the restaurant 2x (& ordered room service once) because it was so good: really first class food! They make fresh tropical fruit 'shakes'/smoothies e.g. mango. Don't miss the dragon fruit, berries, papaya, and fruit salad at breakfast. I think this is a great choice in Phuket, as Patong Beach is known for its loud nightclubs, and we could even hear one across the bay. If you want loud music, just save money and listen to car woofers.

  • "Authentic & Beautiful" TripAdvisor ReviewChrissayjohnson01, Johannesburg, South Africa Year 2017
    • An absolute 5 star experience, everything from the staff to the hotel rooms is fantastic. Hotel is extremely clean and the location and surrounding of the actual hotel is so authentic. Your F&B manager is a star, and puts so much effort into everything, especially convocations with the guests.

  • "Amazing experience, beautiful resort and friendly staff" TripAdvisor ReviewOcean2Uae, U.A.E. Year 2017
    • My husband and I have been in the resort since 7July for our honeymoon and still here another day as I write this review. The resort is just amazing, beautiful and such nice touches as sculptures and fountains every few feet. We're staying in beach cottage with a very decent view of the beach (119).
      The check in was swift and the lady Linda walked us to our room and showed us everything in the room. The outdoor bathroom is excellent and since we booked directly the mini bar was free for us for us stay which is great. There were two good quality umbrellas in the room and even insect repellent spray was provided. The room did not lack in anything. The hotel run shuttle to patong is also very useful and we used it once to visit patong centre. We are inspired by the breathtaking views of the hotel and the breakfast spread is also just amazing. We tried both the onsite restaurants Old Siam and Marissa and the food in Marissa was excellent and the portion size really big. Service as always is top class. This is 5star experience with just the right price. You can't get better value for money than this. We will definitely come back and it is highly recommended. We just don't want to leave :)

  • "Amazing place, great service, nature, relax and very close to Kamala and Patong beach!" TripAdvisor ReviewMadlenitas, Sofia, Bulgaria Year 2016
    • This place is one of a kind! The owner had preserved the nature around the villas and had made the place a true oasis! The service as well is on a very high level, people are very kind and open to help you and offer you the most relaxing stay:) we were in the villas with ocean view on the highest part of the hill, the view was amazing, the Jacuzzi on the balcony had added additional glamour to our stay:)
      The hotel has its own beach, a lot of palm trees that can be used as umbrellas when the sun is hot burning, which is very convenient. There are 2 restaurants offering amazing food, the breakfast is great and various. It's really one of a kind place to stay!!!

  • "Best resort in Phuket" TripAdvisor ReviewBri C, Dubbo, Australia Year 2016
    • Spent two weeks in this amazing resort one week in the hillside rooms second week in the beach front rooms. Only planned one week but cancelled second week elsewhere to stay the extra week here. Most beautiful staff. We both got sick and one of the staff I can't remember her name but she was often walking around the restaurant area. She organised a meal to help us feel better that wasn't on the menu but a Thai dish to soothe stomach, continually checked on us throughout our stay remembering our names each time. Breakfast was amazing everyday the egg station really made it worth it. The pool was amazing, poolside bar really fun touch and also the beach chairs were good to relax and read a book. The beach was amazing and we hired the snorkeling gear to go out on the pier and look at the fish. There was a lot of fish but as we were treading water we became very tired and went back to the ladder to have a large group 10 people in kayaks getting off. It took a long time for them to get out of the kayaks and then they left them sitting there meaning whilst we were getting out of the water we were continually getting knocked by the kayaks tied to the ladder- this was the only downfall throughout our whole stay and it was not exactly the resorts fault more the very selfish Chinese tourists. We often caught the shuttle into town and would wait after breakfast only to be swarmed as soon as the shuttle arrived by the same group of Chinese tourists meaning on three occasions we had to wait for the next shuttle despite waiting before them- this could of been managed by the front staff. There was another staff member that controlled the cart to the hillside room that went out of his way to talk to us and recommend things to do. The restaurant and room service is great when you don't feel like going into town. There was often fireworks on nearby areas that were great on our first night having the beachfront buffet. Overall we had a great time. The resort itself is absolutely amazing and the staff make it even better. We cannot wait to come back and visit this beautiful resort.

  • "Authentic and beautiful beach resort" TripAdvisor Reviewstephykywong, Hong Kong, China Year 2016
    • Spent 4 amazing nights at this beautiful resort. Staffs are very welcoming and helpful. Everyone at the resort were very patient with us throughout all our questions. View from the private beach at the resort was breathtaking, the place is a true oasis. Lots of greenery and ambiance for people who appreciates nature. Great location, amazing service, will definitely come back!

  • "Tropical beach resort" TripAdvisor ReviewALAL14, Melbourne, Australia Year 2016

      Will definitely return.

  • "I dreamed to a place like this. Amazing." TripAdvisor ReviewFlorin_Bucuresti, Bucharest, Romania Year 2016
    • I do not know what kind of person you are, dear reader. I can tell about me that I love nature, sand, sea, animals, the sound of silence and, above all, I love the beauty of life. I live in a capital, I work in front of a computer all day long, I drive to office and back about two hours daily, I go time to time to Mall.
      When I don’t do this, I dream to a magic beach, with white sand, tall palm trees and clear seawater.
      You know what I’m talking about. I tell you all this things because I want you to understand why, for me and my wife, Thavorn Hotel was an amazing choice. We were there in our honeymoon. We opted for a Beach Cottage. So, impressions: The hotel is beautiful, really beautiful. It’s located on a very beautiful beach, and most important, on a private beach. In Patong area you will find very hard a hotel with private beach, there are some legal restrictions and most of the beaches are open to public. The beach is very clean, they make cleaning every day despite is a large beach. The Beach Cottage area is lovely, very close to the beach and full of nature around you. By night you will follow asleep hearing the waves hitting the sore. It is something more that I can ask ? I say it clearly: NO, About Beach Cottage aren’t so many to say, a large room with a big bed, an open bathroom with transparent roof, a wide terrace. The furniture is in a good condition, not new, not in a perfect shape, but still nice. I stayed in a 5 start hotel in Greece with much low quality of furniture. We just loved the Cottage, and we strongly recommended. You must understand that this is a 365 day hotel, so it cannot be identical with a town hotel. There are other types of rooms, near pools area and on the hill side. We did not entered inside to have an opinion. The flower and the trees are all around the hotel, it a spectacular celebration of nature. An incredible garden of orchid, red-yellow-green-violet-all colored flowers, waits for you. I told you about animals, yes, they have : a baby elephant, Pooklook is her name, a very nice 5 year girl, a small horse for kids, parrots, rabbits, turtles, chickens, roosters The breakfast is very good, nice diversity but I would like to have a few 3-4 dishes changed, time to time, There are two restaurants inside the hotels, both very expensive. At this point we were not satisfied, the prices are too high and we think it should be adjusted. If you go to Patong (free hotel bus by the way) you will eat at half price. Because we booked directly on hotel site they give as the benefit package: round trip to airport, 15% restaurant discount, lounge access. We were very happy because of all this. The hotel employees were very polite and willing to help, they salute you all the time with a smile on their faces. Some issues with the English language. About the weather, we stayed in the last part of August 2016, in the last 9 days of August, to be more specific. The weather was very good, some days cloudy, some days rain in the night or in the morning, but overall was a very good weather. You should know that in monsoon period the weather is changing very fast but the temperatures is around 28-30 and the rain start and stop in minutes or a few hours and the sea is worm. In 9 days we had only one with rain all day, it was a very good day for reading books. Patong is at 4 km away, you have a hotel bus for free. It is a very noisy town, with millions of motorcycle and cars. I recommend massage, it’s very cheap, like 5 US dollars for 1 hour. I will have a specific review about a nice massage place. We consider Thavorn Hotel a special place, a little heaven on earth and we will come back one day. Thank you Thavorn, it was a pleasure. Room Tip: Beach hotel, Nature and sea Hotel, Quaint hotel

  • "A brief taste of paradise" TripAdvisor ReviewFootloose43, Paphos, Cyprus Year 2016
    • Set in lush tropical gardens, the rooms are beautifully furnished and are totally private, the views are outstanding, but for my wife and I it was the staff who made our stay so enjoyable. Most of the female staff that we encountered were Filipino ladies, immaculately dressed, extremely polite, and very well trained. The reception manager in charge of this training spoke impeccable English, and she couldn't have been more helpful.
      The only point of criticism is the fact that at anything other than high tide, entry into the sea is almost impossible, due to rocks and dead coral, requiring some sort of footwear. Also, after a week, the uniformity of the breakfast became a little monotonous.
      This notwithstanding, Thailand is our favorite vacation venue, and Phuket our destination of choice. In future, we shall always stay at this relaxing, and well organised hotel. Room Tip: pay a little extra and acquire a room with unobstructed sea view, either on the beach or on the hill.

  • "Peace & Tranquility" TripAdvisor ReviewJustin J, Orlando, Florida Year 2016
    • Oh Thavorn, let me count the ways I love thee...This is my second time staying at this resort and I must say that it is fantastic! If peace and quite is what you are looking for, then look no further. Located only 10 minutes from Patong Beach, Thavorn is the perfect place to get the rest and relaxation that you have been looking for. The staff and service is exactly what you would expect from a high-class Thai hotel: Professional, friendly, and mostly English speaking. Highly recommended!!

  • "Private Beach Front Anniversary Dinner" TripAdvisor ReviewChantelle L Year 2016
    • Had the most amazing anniversary dinner here, it was so romantic and more than I could ever ask for. We had the Surf and Turf package. The food was so delicious and the customer services was exceptional. You have to book in advance for this. It was so amazing!

  • "Awesome Stay" TripAdvisor ReviewMrinmoy D Year 2016
    • Wonderful stay at a wonderful hotel. Before booking into Thavorn have done my homework by reading reviews. As expected i was welcomed by the friendly staff and took me to the room. There i was amused by the view from the hill top suite and the amenities placed in the room. Hotel have got a private beach , 02 swimming pool, fun activity center and lot more. Bed was very comfortable , Excellent service by the staff , neat and clean areas, away from the city. Hotel have free shuttle services to Patong which is very convenient. I was actually lost in nature . Best fir a beach retreat holiday. Amazing will visit again. Room Tip: Best Views are from hill top rooms.

  • "Very relaxing stay and exceptionally friendly staff" TripAdvisor ReviewTillyWee, Sydney, Australia Year 2016
    • We chose the place to celebrate our 10 years anniversary and we had a very romantic and a relaxing stay. Staff were really friendly and provided us with an exceptional service. We had the most romantic dinner by the beach. The resort is a nature friendly one and you can see friendly animals roaming around.

  • "Amazing hotel with unforgettable stay" TripAdvisor ReviewMahmoud_Fattahi, Muscat, Oman Year 2016
    • The hotel is located between Kamala and Patong beach, it is very nice and calm resort. I enjoyed the stay with the family and the kids were very happy playing with rabbits. The room was very nice with an amazing view, the staff were good and very friendly. Booking for the activities from the hotel was also a good option taking in consideration that the given prices were good. The cable car looks very nice for the first time when you try it to reach the room but then it will be a bit difficult as it is very slow. Room Tip: Floors 4 and 5 have the best view.

  • "Love the place" TripAdvisor ReviewLegallycute Year 2016
    • Awesome in all aspects , will return again. Customer service was exceptional, food was great and reasonably priced, love the fact that the hotel played the Thai King songs, very touching. I stayed at the mountain room where cable car could take me there.

  • "Gorgeous Resort!!" TripAdvisor ReviewIzzylah, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Year 2016
    • I stayed 3 nights in the beach cottage with my son and husband. it was an amazing stay and i wished i could stay longer than 3 nights! The staffs in the hotel were very attentive and friendly and provide a good customer service to us. The hotel landscape is so beautiful and calming and this has to be the best resort that i have stayed so far and it also have animals that can get us connected with the nature.. with the private beach lays in front of the beach cottage, the clean setting in the bedroom, created a nice ambiance for our stays. I will definitely recommend this hotel if you're seeking for a peaceful vacation as this place is not in the town. Look forward to return to this place when i have a chance to visit Phuket again!

  • "Amazing! Incredible! The best place!" TripAdvisor ReviewDenitza T Year 2016
    • We were there last winter for New Year. We loved it. There was one girl speaking Russian, so helped us a lot. She is responsible for the lodging of the guests. I don't remember the name, but thank you! We arrived very late. The was some problem from our tour operator from Bulgaria but she arranged everything and gave us a believe the best villa in the hotel. Important: Before going to the hotel I saw in TripAdvisor some pictures that on the beach there are lots of stones and it is muddy, just before the water of the sea starts. So I was wondering why. These are the tides - part of the day you see the stones, part of the day - not. I thought we'll not like it but for my surprise it didn't because the pool is like a lake and it is amazing so I didn't really need the see. Beside you can go to the see at least half of the day if you want. It is not noisy as in the towns and there are free shuttles and of course you can order a taxi. We had a wonderful time there. Thank you. Room Tip: The best are villas at the pool. I do not recommend the rooms at the beach. definitely not the rooms with the elevator.

  • "Amazing resort and dinner!" TripAdvisor ReviewMaddison M, Melbourne, Australia Year 2016
    • Brilliant hotel with great staff, facilities, breakfast. A little far from the bustle of Phuket but worth the little drive to get some peace and quiet. Beach is awesome and we booked a private dinner... Personal wait staff, chef etc and all round amazing service. Cute bunnies running around and yummy food. Was a night I won't forget too quickly.

  • "November 2016 stay. Wonderful!" TripAdvisor ReviewKevinmeek, Gloucestershire, United Kingdom Year 2016
    • I am English, my wife is Chinese. Neither of us, wanted to leave. We had a beach front bungalow for 8 nights. Apart from a minor fault, with the air conditioning, which was repaired within, 2 hours, we had no complaints. Location wise, we found it to be perfect. Quiet, and peaceful, just far enough away from Patong. ( 20 minutes, by the shuttle bus ) ( or 400 Baht, by taxi ) The buffet breakfast, was very good, but get there early, as it can get busy. If there could be anything about the resort, that I would request to be improved, would be the extent of the menu, in the restaurants. The food was excellent, but not too extensive!  We found the staff to be helpful, and always smiling. Thank you all at the Thavorn. We look forward to staying with you again. A truly wonderful resort. Room Tip: Beach front bungalow. Walk out of your door, onto the beach. Fall asleep, listening to the ocean.

  • "Loved it, beautiful!" TripAdvisor ReviewJotschumi, Tomar, Portugal Year 2016
    • We arrived early for check in so a very nice staff member placed us in a room with complementary drinks and snacks until our room was ready. We booked a beach cottage and it was worth every penny! We got the one closest to the pool and on the front line for the beach, the one I would have picked myself. Everything was clean and inviting. The bed was very comfortable and the AC on - a must in Thailand! Breakfast was delicious and the restaurant lovely. We had pizza in the Crocodile Pool Bar and the waiter packed us the leftover slices (pizzas in Thailand were always large) so we could take them to eat later. The pool is amazing! All the little hidden corners, full of plants and trees, it is really beautiful! The beach was quite good as well, very clean, but a bit rocky, so I would recommend you take some beach shoes like the scuba diving ones for protection, with them on it is absolutely fine. The resort is amazing, lovely gardens, every detail taken care of, lots of animals roam free like rabbits and chicken, butterflies, frogs, turtles, birds.. we even got to seen a pony and an elephant (I was pleased to hear the responsible guy declining money for someone to ride the elephant). On our last day my boyfriend lost his phone and I cannot tell you how helpful the staff were, calling all the places we'd been, looking for it themselves once Google told us it was in the resort, until we found it! We only stayed a couple of nights but I would love to go back and stay longer, special because the weather was not so great during our stay, but even so I loved it! Room Tip: Corner Beach cottage for more privacy and immediate beach access.

  • "Beautiful" TripAdvisor ReviewJaneL682, United Kingdom Year 2016
    • We came for a relaxing week after touring around Myanmar and a perfect place it was to do this. Set in acres of it's own ecological grounds and gardens filled with sculptures, orchids and wildlife with the most amazing lagoon swimming pool that we could access privately from our poolside room with a small sandy beach alongside with a bar and eating area. If you feel the need to go to Patong beach the hotel provides a free shuttle bus throughout the day but the surroundings are so beautiful we only ventured out once as it was a little like going to Piccadilly Circus. There are daily visits from a baby elephant that comes to the beach to be fed bananas, giant tortoises, a pony and a friendly family of tame rabbits along with colorful parakeets and chickens. There are hillside cottages but these have to accessed by a cable tram and if you want views then go for one of those. The only downside was the restaurants which had limited menus and breakfast was a nightmare as the jams and pastries placed on un-covered trays were covered in ants and wasps. Very off-putting and this problem needs to be addressed as it makes its rating drop to 4 star.

  • "Beautiful grounds" TripAdvisor ReviewAnfdiva25, Weston Connecticut Year 2016
    • I stayed in a beach cottage and arrived at 4 a.m. from an international flight. We had a rental car and found the convenient parking very easily. There was plenty of staff at 4 am to check us in and then drive us to our beach cottage. The beach cottage was wonderful. Spacious interior with a front patio and outdoor rain shower and sink. I was worried that the shower water wouldn't be hot enough but it was the perfect temperature. It was great being just steps from the beach and the beach cottage was very convenient to the lobby, breakfast area and pool and beach area. The grounds are garden like and so beautiful! The breakfast was delicious with plenty of traditional breakfast and Thai options. I loved the fresh fruit and fresh fruit juice! The wireless internet worked well. Overall the stay completely exceed my expectations.

  • "Amazing location with great service ! Love it here." TripAdvisor ReviewNorco, California Year 2016
    • Feel very welcome with friendly and helpful staffs. The room is very clean and tidy. The hotel look very classy. Very very big swimming pool and generous room size. Here with my family and they all love it. The kids got so excited to see rabbits running around. The resort has got one of the largest area I have been to. A lot of trees and very beautiful garden, very value for money as I have booked a bit earlier. Totally 5 stars resort both the hotel itself and services. I wasn't lucky with bad weather but I feel so lucky to pick this resort :) from happy family.

  • "Excellent stay, Highly recommended for a nice beach resort in Phuket" TripAdvisor Reviewevalam88, New York Year 2016
    • 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”

  • "Excellent! Superb!" TripAdvisor Reviewkvkorg, Mumbai, India Year 2016
    • Thavorn Beach Village is an excellent resort is located at Kamala beach approximate 12-15 mins drive from Patong and 40 mins from airport.

      Although 30 years old it also has good points to stay:
      1. Extremely well maintained rooms with daily housekeeping.
      2. Has private well maintained beach with lots of bench. (Good for swimming, no snorkeling).
      3. Awesome pool with bar.(pool bar closes at 7.00)
      4. Good breakfast but very less vegetarian choice.
      5. Bike & Car rental available at hotel at reasonable rate.
      6. Superb Landscaping with lots of different kinds of plants, trees & orchids.

      Few places of disappointment
      1. Very less vegetarian options at all restaurants
      2. Shuttle service to Patong is less frequent
      3. Excursion tours from hotel is bit expensive.

      It's a beautiful resort for couples & families. Those who want to spend lovely time with each other, beach & nature, this is the place. Party animals should stay at Patong beach.

      Room Tip: Higher Rooms have little sea view but you are dependent on shuttle services. Lower rooms have direct pool & beach access.

  • "Very excellent service and reasonable price" TripAdvisor ReviewPhoomkit, Bangkok Thailand Year 2016
    • Resort is very clean with excellent service. Staff is very friendly. Nice view with private beach. The price is well decorated and suitable for couple and family. Will definitely come back here again.

  • "More than 6 star destination" TripAdvisor ReviewArnon L Year 2016
    • This hotel is very perfect destination in Phuket. We plan to come Phuket for snorkeling on some islands nearby but the huge storm come on the date of arriving. So, we need to spend almost whole trip in the hotel. Meanwhile. Everything is perfect for our group of family. The pool is so big including private beach front. All facilities are over expectation. There are also some rabbit run all around the area with also some chicken. The atmosphere is wonderful for relaxing. I feel extremely love this place so much.

  • "Relaxing and Enchanting", TripAdvisor ReviewAnirban S, Year 2016
    • Excellent behavior of staffs and they make you feel warm...they greet you all the time and for any help they are always ready. overall ambiance is very good. the cable car is added piece of cake which you will not find anywhere else i guess .. good view from the private beach (but not fit for swimming) but the pool is a better place to swim). overall very good for couples. Room Tip: Get beach side or hill top at 4th, 5th or 6th level for good view.

  • "Heaven garden for those who love plants", TripAdvisor ReviewAurelia P, Romania, Year 2016
    • I was in many places but this one is by far the most beautiful. I took some time just walking along the alleys to admire the scenery and take photos. The accommodation was very good and so was he housekeeping staff. But living in a heavenly "botanical garden" beats imagination.
  • "Must Go Here" TripAdvisor ReviewNorco, California Year 2016
    • Stayed in Beach Cottage, with ocean front. Everything here is gorgeous. Food is buffet comes with room 6:30 am to 10:00 am. Food was great good service. I enjoyed a couples massage also wonderful. Room was clean and quiet. Take mosquito spray you will need it on the island. I will always stay here when I visit Phuket. Room Tip: “Stay here. Go on the 5 hour island tour its free. Go elephant trekking you can book at resort great price.”
