“We like this hotel very much!”
Reviewed 27 January 2012

We have been in Chaba Phuket Hotel on the new year’s Eve 2012 for 5 days and enjoyed this vacation a lot. First of all I want to tell that the stuff is very friendly and they are ready to help you with taxi service, wi fi internet, can order an excursions. There are beautiful area, free American pool, free wi fi internet and we had a plasma TV in our bungalow. The hotel is rather new and interior of the room is simple but very convenient. In our bungalow we have had two rooms, one with tv and two armchairs and another with a big bedroom and wardrobe. Also there were rather large bathroom with bath not a shower cabin. The water was good. The windows of the hotel look on the road but it is rather quite road where are not many cars of motorbikes, usually people go there. The bungalow had a way to terrace where also chairs, the table and we were able to smoke there. Also in the bungalow we had a fridge, wash for dishes, and microwave Owen. The stuff come for every day to clean up the rooms. So it was good comfortable staying.
Breakfast was good, because it is rather European: bacon, rice, vegetables, fruits (watermelon, pineapple),muesli, cornflakes, milk, juice and a coffee from coffemachine (!!!) what was wonderful beginning of the day.
It takes about 10 minutes to walk from the Kata Beach.
Near the hotel are different restaurants, Italian cuisine, Pub, Thai massage and mini supermarket.
We like this hotel very much!

I was organising my parents' holiday trip to Phuket for the third time. This time they took along my daughter (13) as well.

The positives. This was the first time they were staying at Chaba Hotel and it turned out to be a great place. My parents prefer Kata beach for quiteness and the hotel is located conveniently close to everything, but not exposed to the noice of nightlife. I booked Triple Deluxe, which appeared to be spacious and with a big balcony and a nice view. 3 pools are not crowded and well maintanied and great to relax in. Breakfast is simple, but good quality. Staff is very attentive and helpful. Internet connection via ethernet cable in rooms and WiFi in the lobby free of charge. My daughter confirms the speed was decent.

The negatives.The hotel is close enough to the beach (300 m), but if you want to take a short route, you have to stroll along a stinky strim. Pillows feel a little hard.

Overall, my parents are saying they would have happily stayed there for another couple of weeks. So is my daughter.

We were so relieved when we arrived here at this hotel after stopping at all the other hotels in patong and karon along the way in our mini bus ride from the airport. this place seemed so safe and clean and in a nicer area. the hotel has its own neighborhood, attached with other hotels and markets, with their own security as well. rooms are super clean, nice showers, air conditioning, tvs and balconys...and a great hairdryer. good breakfast but best of all was the staff. everyone was very helpful and always smiling. this was our first stop in thailand and they helped us book our next hotel and made a few phone calls for us to our places of interest. they will book you trips, excursions, and pretty much any help you need. def recommend! 400meters from the beach. def great place to stay in kata!

Room Tip: we booked online and got a superior room which was on the top floor.

We stayed at Chaba Hotel for the last week of November 2011. The hotel was very nicely laid out with two outdoor pools, the larger of the two having very nice gardens and lounge chairs. The rooms were just average, but well kept and with a small fridge. Breakfast had enough variety and included eggs cooked to order and very good coffee from an automatic machine, which was a pleasant surprise as I like my coffee black and strong. The staff were always very nice and accommodating even though some didn't speak much English. Another plus was that the owner was always at breakfast and was very friendly and available and making sure everything was of a high standard. Lastly, although a 10 minute walk to Kata beach, the location was overall very good as it was near several good restaurants and pubs and easy walking distance to all the eateries and nightlife that Kata has to offer. As well it was nice and quiet at night. We will definitely book the Chaba Hotel again on our future visits to Kata.

OK, I'll be honest, this part of Phuket is not my thing, but when your return flight is from Phuket airport and you have to spend a few days there the Chaba is a pretty good choice. The large hotel complex looks brand new and not very thai - but the large rooms are very clean, calm and with all mod cons. Kata beach is at least a 10 minute walk away but frankly we preferred to stay by the quiet pool in the garden. The thai staff and european owner were all very nice and the buffet breakfast (included) was superb! Plenty of restaurants on the road towards the beach - and Karon beach is just a little further. If you're looking for modern & comfortable then stay here, if you're looking for authenticity this isn't the place for you.

My wife and I stayed at Cha Ba for two months during the low season ( sept,Oct). we were only going to stay a couple of weeks but could never find a reason to leave.Friendly staff, good food, close to everything.Kata beach is a short walk away. Restaurants are close and plentiful.The pool was magnificent.Free breakfast,free wifi,free cable TV.Local market sets up twice a week across the street.No worries.

Room Tip: Go to the local market across the street.Sets up twice a week.Nice bargains.

Considering we only paid 850baht ($27) a night with breakfast (September) and we booked through Agoda, it was a Super Special with 55% off a Superior room with breakfast, so for this price it was a good deal.

Location for us was perfect as we had a function to go to a 2 minute walk away from the hotel. The Superior rooms are very small with a tiny balcony (sort of) measuring about ten inches wide, but at least you can open the doors up.

The bathroom is small & basic, nothing flash but for the price we did not expect luxury. The bed was comfortable, there is a small table & chairs in the room, small television & fridge. Our room was on the second floor & overlooked a workers site. There is a lot of construction going on in the area so it was a little bit noisy but not enough to ruin our stay there.

There are 2 swimming pools, the first one is tiny but the bigger one at the back is lovely with plenty of lounge chairs. We ordered lunch & a few drinks by the pool; prices were good & the food tasty. Breakfast was also very good.

So all in all a good value hotel if the price is right!
