Bright, clean room with good A/C, healthy water pressure and fair Wifi reception. Close to both lake and ocean and a 711 nearby for any necessary purchases. Dave even rented me his motorbike for the week at a great rate and is happy to advise on Rawai itself.

I have stayed at the But Different hotel a few times now due to its location being very close to Naiharn beach (about 5 - 10 minutes walk) and if you walk the other direction your right into the Rawai area which is full of restaurants and bars.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small boutique guesthouse located right in the heart of Nai Harn. We are 200 meters from Nai Harn lake and 800 meters from Nai Harn beach which is often considered the best beach in Thailand. We have five modern different sized rooms. All rooms have air condition units as well as stand alone fans and they are all furnished with double beds, wardrobes, Side cabinets, bedside lights, 80 channel televisions, kettles and a fridge. Four of the rooms have a table and chairs. All rooms have 100% block out curtains for the ones that would prefer a lie in in the morning. The bathrooms are spacious and soap and shampoo, etc, are provided. Downstairs is where the seating area and bar is located where you have a choice of several beers, wines and spirits. Beach mats and towels are provided free of charge if you prefer to idle your days away chilling on the beach or if you decide that you would like to venture outside the Nai Harn area to participate in some island trips, diving, shows or visit the Patong nightlife we will be only too happy to assist. We have a vast knowledge of the surrounding area and overall Phuket. There are many restaurants and bars within walking distance that provide for all tastes whether you like the healthy options, pizza or just want to chill and watch some sport on the big screen with a cold beer. ... more   less
