I recommend to choose another accommodation. There are so many nicer hotels in Phuket than this old resort. The food wasn't good, the beach was dirty, rooms and furniture looking very old. Everything (food, massages, ...) is not as good as outside of the resort, but twice as expensive.

Rather dated. Like a time warp to the 90's. Just dirtier. Almost like a scene from Fawlty Towers. Having said that, the staff were relatively friendly and helpful. Views from the pool villas are stunning, this is let down by the quality of the unkempt structures. The resort appears to be lacking leadership or management of any kind. It needs...

Big villa with very private pool with views to the sea... huge space. Only here 2 nights but every member of staff went out of their way to help. It's out of the way with not much around but food at hotel was really good. If you want to be in a hotel and just relax in privacy with good...

Dated. Empty. Awful food, bar shut. Only guests in hotel. No breakfast buffet as advertised. Just eggs and pad Thai. Nothing at all in the local area. Totally dead. It's a shame, the hotel could be nice but it is so tired. Seriously do not waste your money there are way better hotels at this price. We moved to chava...

TL;DR: very tired property that survives on just that little bit of charm. Stayed here over four nights for a wedding that took place at Naka Island; didn't want to pay 3x the price (around US$450) for the Starwood Luxury Collection, which was the only property on Naka, so stayed here instead because of its 10 min ferry link to...

We stayed at Chandara one day/night only because we were chartering a boat the next day at the Ao Po Marina next door. Pros: - spacious rooms with private plunge pools. (But you lol have to clean your own deck off bird poop) - beautiful view (if your room faces the water otherwise the main pool and beach are your...

There are several reasons why we enjoyed our stay at this resort... the quiet beauty of the lush gardens, the cool waters of the large infinity pool, the calming spa and the most helpful desk/ concierge staff that we encountered on the crazy busy island of Phuket. If you like the hustle... and I do mean hustle ;) of Patong,...

A hidden gem in the beautiful island of Phuket . Brilliant service, relaxing and well equipped rooms. A breath taking view. High recommended for a romantic get away or a family destination. The hotel provides many options to keep even the most demanding visitors feeling like super stars.
