Amy Adejokun Section editor

In order to diversify its offer and provide something to keep everyone happy, The Old Phuket has added a second building to its complex, meaning that it can now offer modern designer rooms in contrast to the traditional Thai decor of the original rooms. The Old Phuket is in Karon Beach, but it is not a beachfront hotel. As Thailand's beaches are public places, the hotel does not provide beach equipment for its guests.

    Location 4.91 /10

    The hotel is located on the west coast of Phuket in Karon Beach, near to the beach itself. Phuket Town is around a 20-minute drive away, whilst the airport is about 45 minutes away, depending on the traffic.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    The hotel's 184 rooms are spread between the two buildings, with 88 rooms in the Sino Wing and 96 in the Serene Wing. The first building is four floors high and houses the traditional rooms, the oldest of which are furnished with four-poster beds and a balcony. The decor is a combination of red and mauve, and the bathroom opens onto the room itself. The newer rooms have the same facilities and are sparsely decorated but pleasant, nevertheless. The lounge area consists of a sofa opposite the bed. The rooms in the Serene Wing, the modern section of the hotel, welcomed their first guests in December 2008. These rooms are more stylish and overlook the swimming pool, although it should be noted that they all face each other. Each room has a balcony or a terrace, depending on the floor, and garden furniture. The very refined interior is all-white, allowing the blue light reflecting off the swimming pool to play on the walls and create a pleasant ambience. as for the bathroom, it is designed in the shape of a corridor and little paving stones lead to the bath.
    All of the rooms have the same facilities: a television, a safe, air-conditioning, a minibar with tea and coffee-making facilities, a hair-dryer and 24-hour room service.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The Old Phuket is a fine establishment with two parts, the traditional Sino Wing and the modern Serene Wing, allowing guests to choose between two different settings within the same hotel. On arrival at the hotel, guests enter a large open-sided lobby with a high ceiling overhead. It is a very airy space, containing no more than the reception itself and a few seats arranged around small lounge areas. Outside are the rooms and restaurants of the traditional part of the hotel. The swimming pool on the third floor is rather small compared to the number of rooms. Next, you come to the modern part, which is a real favourite. The rooms are housed in a U-shaped building constructed around the pool, and here again you cannot help wondering if there are really enough deck chairs for all the guests.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The Old Phuket has four restaurants. The Shark serves breakfast as a buffet from 6:30 am to 10:30 am and guests can choose to eat inside or outside on the terrace. The Bai Toey prepares Thai dishes for lunch and dinner, and the Chili Restaurant has an a la carte menu of international cuisine and seafood, which it serves for lunch and dinner. Finally, Al Dente is the place to go for Italian food and it is open from 11:00 am to 11:00 pm.

    To know

    As explained above, although The Old Phuket is not on the beachfront, guests can use Karon beach which is just across the coastal road in front of the hotel.

      Charm, nature and relaxation: the Central Karon Village interprets with verve this seducing trilogy, thus compensating the little weakness of being a bit far from the beach.

      The Banthai might remind you of a little village. With its guest rooms set well apart from the rest of the establishment's facilities, the Banthai feels a bit like a private block of flats, and has a great location in the town of Patong. The communal areas and the swimming pools in particular are very pleasant and really well thought out. This is an ideal place to stay if you wish to make the most of Patong's shops while also being fairly close to the beach. The guests are very seasonal, and you are likely to meet other Europeans here as well as Asians and Australians. However, there are no facilities provided especially for children. One thing that is ideal for families, however, is the adjoining rooms.

      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!
