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!

    Location 3.46 /10

    The hotel is near Surin beach. It is around thirty minutes by car for the 15.5 miles to go to the airport of Phuket island. Concerning Phuket Town, consider around 19 miles.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The hotel has 55 rooms, each one nicer than the other. The standard room is not as big but offers all necessary. The decoration is as taken care of as in the rest of the hotel; the place is very cosy, nice and relaxing. The floor with ochre tiles and the wooden ceiling enhance the white walls. Black and white pictures are hang on the wall. However, the view is only directed towards the garden. There is: TV, air conditioning, filled minimar accompanied by a tea and coffee kit, direct international line and 24 hour room service. Concerning the bathroom, it is really small, but do you really need more? It is all in beige paving with a lovely visible basin and a black marble outline. Hairdryer, welcome products and bathrobes are available there.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    What a beautiful and nice surprise! The Manathai seems hidden in a small street to preserve itself from the rest of the world. A secret to keep for yourself! All the decoration elements found their place here and not elsewhere. An Asian setting blending contemporary and traditional Thai, which creates an extremely elaborate and elegant complex. A big gong is installed at the entrance of the establishment. Then, you will find a small wooden desk used as the reception. Hidden below a high ceiling a jar-shaped fountain let some water slide softly along its walls. This then gathers in a water liliy pond. The different tones of brown and wood add to the harmony of the place.
    The hotel disposes of two small swimming pool installed by the rooms, hacienda style. Once again, the place is charming. The ponds with rather steep shapes are in harmony with the small garden and the surrounding buildings. The wooden beach chairs and sunshades are installed around them. The place reminds a small village or a Thai residence.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    Despite its very private structure, the Manathai offers two restaurants. The first one works a la carte for lunch and dinner while the second one operates as a buffet for breakfast. The floor is made of beige and brown marble surrounded by an always refined decoration, with superb fresh orchids. The buffet in the middle of the place is very cosy and suggests a refined Asian and European cuisine.

    To know

    The hotel is very well situated as, even if it is not installed by the seaside there is one nearby. In addition, there are numerous shops as you exit the hotel.

      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.

      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.

      • Location -

      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.

      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.

      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 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!
