“Peaceful and great value for money accommodation - small and very friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014

We have recently stayed in a two bedroom two bathroom suite with a lovely balcony area just by the small restaurant and pool. We really enjoyed our time there. The walk to the town and beach was just far enough to be good for us without being too exhausting and being a little out of town and up a hill meant it was lovely and peaceful. it was easy to get a taxi if needed. Phunawa resort is quite small and very friendly with excellent staff who were very helpful. We much preferred it to a larger and less personal hotel. The bar area is lovely and the bar food was really good and relatively cheap. We intend to stay there again.

We stayed here recently and we found the rooms to be clean and large. It is walking distance to Karon but out enough to be quiet. nice buffet breakfast. Friendly staff. Nice pool. New owners already trying to spruce the place up with new deck chairs etc. Not a luxury holiday but good value for money for a few days

We have just recently returned from a 10 day stay at Phunawa Resort. Between my family we had a three bedroom penthouse, a one bedroom penthouse and a two bedroom room. From the moment we arrived we were extremely impressed with the quiet hotel location, and also the well kept grounds.

Each of the rooms which we stayed in were very modern and clean, we were all very impressed. Staff were also more than happy to help when we required additional towels etc. The rooms are serviced every day (impressive considering the rooms are self contained) With bottled water being provided daily.

We had the breakfast inclusion and we were all happy with breakfast each morning - Nan the omelette chef was great.

We also ate at the restaurant on 4 nights including the traditional Thai buffet night , and we're happy with our meals each time - Nana the restaurant host is very funny! The meals are more expensive then nearby restaurants however we found that they were reasonably priced for a resort.

Also with 2 20yr old's and 2 18 yr old's on our trip, many nights were spent on the rooftop bar enjoying cocktails (very nice!) and talking Toto the bar man! The rooftop bar is awesome and night with music going from about 6pm , but not loud enough to disrupt the stay of other guests.

We also travelled to and from phuket airport by the resort shuttle bus and it was on time , convenient and reasonably priced considering the 1hr trip.

All in all we were all very pleased with our stay at phunawa resort and would most definitely recommend it for others - it exceeded our expectations!!

The had a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom suite which was very large only think which I found strange only a small sofa not enough room to all sit down and there was only 3 of us . To be honest I personally think the rooms could of done with a bit more cleaning and did not get sheets changed everyday like some of the hotels we stayed in . The thing I was not to keen on was we was on the second floor right at the bottom of the complex to so had to walk up loads or steps or down depending on which way you was going . Breakfast was ok but a lot of food left uncovered which was not to keen on and we ordered food at lunch time and we was the only people eating but took over 45 mins to get food .

Excellent first class service. Clean apartments friendly Staff. 5 minuets walk to the beach. Breakfast is delicious too. swimming pool surrounds the whole apartment block of the hotel and there is always a fresh towels on hand, and the play room for the kids is an added bonus.

Room Tip: The closer to the restaurant you are the better the wifi reception.

]Just got back from Thailand stayed at the Phunawa hotel we did expect to stay at the Dewa hotel but it changed its name and forgot to let arriving guests know,so on the morning we arrived we drove about for what seemed an age .
I travelled with a friend and expected to have a either a separate room or twin beds .We got an oversized king size bed in one room even though there was a room next door that was kept locked so we didn't use the other bed .
Our suite was spacious and well equipped .it had a fridge freezer cooker and television .
All of the hotel staff were very good and respectful from management to pool boy.What ever was asked of them they would do their upper most to oblige The breakfast had a good selection of foods and beverages.Again staff were on hand to assist. We stayed in a corner room (room1111) and for me it was the right location for us . I would recommend this hotel and I would definately stay there again.Thank you to the staff of the Phunawa for assisting in my trip to Thailand a wonderful experience .Guests who stayed in room 1111

Room Tip: Make sure that you stipulate what kind of room you require such as twin? double .

We had a great stay in Phunawa!
Service: Very good, even in busy New Year's time. Staff spoke english very well (we had some trouble in other places in Thailand)
Food: Breakfast was very good
Room: huge! There were two rooms (we only used one), two bathrooms and complete kitchen amenities (we didn't use). Great option for families.
Spa: We wanted to use it, but it is currently in renovation
Location: 10min walking to Karon Beach (great beach!) which is very reasonable. Very quiet place, which was a plus for us. However, many taxi drivers have trouble finding the hotel.
