Just like its twin establishments, the Kamala Beach and the Patong Beach, the Courtyard Phuket at Surin Beach is definitively a family hotel. The children's club is a true paradise for kids: it's built on several levels and offers all sorts of activities. Located at the heart of the hotel, parents are never far. Bought in 2008 by the Marriott group, this is a well kept establishment despite having been around for a long time. However, the lack of facilities will prove disappointing to sports enthusiasts. The hotel isn't exactly a seaside establishment, but the beach is relatively close.

    Location 3.3 /10

    As its name indicates, the establishment stands opposite Surin beach, on the west coast of Phuket. To get to Patong, expect a 20 minute drive. Phuket Town, on the east coast, is 14 mi away, and the airport is 12.5 mi to the north, which takes around 30 minutes by car depending on traffic.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    Located in 4 U-shaped buildings, 3 of which are 4 storeys high, the hotel's 252 guest rooms are all in the Deluxe category. They are either furnished with twin beds or one double bed. The setting is pleasant but rather charmless, with little in the way of interior decorating to make them stand out. For those who can't survive without Internet, access is available but you need a cable and you have to pay an extra charge. The bathrooms could be a little more spacious, as the toilet is wedged in behind the wash basin. Thus, there is no bathtub, just a shower, but hospitality products are provided. As for the facilities, the essentials are there: room service during the day, minibar with tea and coffee-making facilities...

    Overview 6.95 /10

    Guests enter into an elegant lobby that has been built lengthwise. The interior decorating is modern in style, as is the furniture, and the setting is pleasant. The lounge areas are, in fact, a series of benches facing the reception desk. The open lobby is airy and equipped with fans, providing a nice breeze of fresh air, a much appreciated feature in the sweltering heat! The main swimming pool has 3 pools and 2 slides, much to the delight of the younger guests, and the entire area is surrounded by the buildings with the guest rooms. Wooden deckchairs have been placed in tight rows around the children's club, which caters for children of all ages. Its many rooms allow it to offer various activities for a supplement. If you feel you need a massage, head for the Araya Spa, which isn't really a spa. In fact, it consists of 4 former guest rooms that have been turned into treatment rooms, so it's hard to really consider it a proper well-being centre.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    As is the case in all of the Courtyards in Phuket, this one has its own MoMo 2 Go grocery store. The same is true for the restaurant: the MoMo Café opens 3 times a day. For lunch, meals are served ŕ la carte, whereas a copious buffet is laid out for breakfast and dinner with the theme changing every evening: barbecue, Italian, Thai... The restaurant is airy and comfortable, but the most pleasant spot is the terrace, which is shared by the restaurant and the bar. Every table is concealed in a corner, giving diners a degree of privacy, something we quite appreciated! What's more, at lunchtime there is a sandwich bar by the pool.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    We can't really say that Surin beach isn't very busy because; in fact, it's rather crowded, but just not quite as much as Patong beach. The hotel is less than 200m from Surin beach, and after having crossed the coastal road, you must walk through a large wooded area before reaching it. However, once you do, there are no facilities provided by the hotel. Nevertheless, on-site deckchairs can be hired for the day. The sand is fine, even if this isn't obvious in some places. The colour of the sea and the water temperature are hard to resist. The entire beach is lined with restaurants and little massage booths.

    To know

    Wi-Fi Internet access is available throughout the hotel but you must pay extra it for it.
    The hotel's next door neighbour is Twinpalms, and the Manathai Resort is a little further on.

      Luxury, isolation, exclusivity: in an exceptional environment, the Chedi interprets a high standard partition which makes it one of the most beautiful hotels in Phuket. After the tidal wave that affected Phuket on 26th December 2004, the Chedi suffers minimum damages on a few bungalows and the beach restaurant, but the hotel works normally.

      Located bordering Laguna Beach, the Bangtao Beach Resort has been existing since 2003. Find out about the road before coming here, it is located on a small street, where you will not think you will find a hotel. The staff of this hotel is very friendly and smiley. This hotel suits people who are looking for simple but effective comfort.

      The Courtyard Phuket at Kamala Beach is perfect for families, as seen in the facilities its children's club has to offer. Different areas have been set up to cater to several age categories and the workshops on offer are sure to delight children and adults alike. As for comfort, the hotel has also risen to the challenge: all of the rooms are suites. However, the beach is some 400m from the hotel and the path leading to it runs parallel to the road. Plus, the fact that guests have to pay to use the deckchairs is regrettable.

      The Kamala Beach is not a hotel for families, as it does not accept bookings for children under 15 years of age. So, it is usually friends and couples who tend to stay here. The situation is a little odd, since the hotel's identical twin, the Sunwing Resort, accepts children, and is only separated from the Kamala Beach by a row of bushes. We couldn't then see what the point was, since there were children just next door... Anyway, this hotel has the advantage of being located close to the beach of the same name, but the deckchairs are not included in the price. The Kamala Beach has no other facilities, not even a spa, which is, to our mind, a major asset for a seaside holiday nowadays. However, there is a small area in the garden, where massages are provided in the open air.

      It is difficult if not impossible not to be charmed by this calm and relaxing place. The Manathai is a superb boutique hotel, open since 2006. Its unique decoration is much more refined than in certain grand palaces. However, you do not come here for the organised activities, as there are not any. Nevertheless, couples will be delighted to stay there. A beautiful success!

      Located near Karon beach, the Woraburi is a small comfortable town hotel with no facilities other than a pool and a restaurant. Nonetheless, it is still an ideal departure point for exploring the town on foot. There are lots of shops next to the hotel, but if shopping isn't your thing and you prefer to laze around on the beach, there is a public beach that you can go to but you will have to walk across the road to get to it, as is the case with all the beaches in Thailand. Moreover, there are no deck chairs or parasols set up for the hotel guests on the beach.

      The Karon Beach has the major advantage of being built directly on Karon beach itself. Its small size is another advantage, given that it only has 80 rooms, although these are unfortunately a little on the small side. You will also be pleased to hear that the restaurant serves delicious food and offers magnificent views.

      The Cape Sienna stands high up overlooking the entire Kamala Beach bay and affords spectacular sea views. This place would be perfect though....in a city! Its main drawback is that there is very little about it that says 'seaside' hotel. It may well have two swimming pools but you're a good way from the beach, not to mention the fact that the second pool is across the road from the establishment! The communal areas are also disappointingly cramped, but if you like to be in close proximity to other people, you'll be quite happy here!

      The Sala Phuket was definitely one of our favourite hotels in Phuket. This splendid establishment is a true haven of peace, both in terms of its architectural qualities and in terms of the tranquillity it offers. It's the perfect love nest for couples, but the hotel also welcomes children, although there is no entertainment on offer. The standard rooms, called the Balcony Rooms, intentionally come in limited numbers. This is for good reason, as it would be a shame to come here without enjoying the superb villas with their private pools. The Sala Phuket opened in 2008 and has many successful years to look forward to!
