Serene Resort is a nice small hotel near Kata Beach.
Stayed here last October 2010. Booked for 2 rooms through Asiatravel.
Our flight from Singapore was delayed, and arrived close to midnight. We had a hard time getting a cab charging reasonably for taking us to our hotel.(If you will be arriving late at night in Phuket, get the hotel transport to pick you up. It's far more convenient and depending on your negotiating skills, prove to be cheaper than haggling with the cab drivers.)
The cab driver seemed to never heard of the hotel and kept calling someone on the phone, presumably asking where it was in Kata.
Surprisingly, a hotel staff was in the reception area when we arrived. They seemed to be waiting for us. And we were informed of our Phi-phi tour pickup early in the morning (booked thru Asiatravel as well).
The rooms were small and simple, but clean and looked nice. It has a private balcony with the view of the pool below. But the rooms were hot even with the aircon on (in the other room, aircon broke down altogether). We saw an aircon maintenance personnel doing repairs in the morning. Some renovation works were also ongoing dowstairs.
We loved their breakfast, lot of choices, good spread, great ambiance, cheerful restaurant staff.
We had a great time at the pool. After being in the sun and sand for too long, the pool was a welcome treat.
Kata beach was about 5 mins walk, a very nice beach and not too crowded (downside: the beach was littered by trash in the evening). Saw a lot of restaurants and convenience stores in the vicinity as well.
Liked Best : quiet, breakfast food, the pool and it's location (very near from the beach)
Like Least : charging too much for a 2 hour late checkout request.
