Reviewed 18 November 2013 via mobile

My husband and I loved this place. We stayed here twice. The first time we stayed in the more expensive room which was huge and had several rooms. The second time we stayed in a cheaper room which was even nicer, modern, clean, quiet aircon. The pool was amazing with its own jacuzzi section and I usually ordered lunch from the restaurant to eat at the pool. The thai food was excellent. For me the location was great, peaceful and only 5 mins to a lovely beach. I had problems with losing a credit card (which I later found) but the staff were so helpful in looking for it with me.Good laundry service. This would be my first choice of hotel in the area.

Stayed: April 2013, travelled as a couple

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in June 2013 and we were very happy with our stay. We arrived late at night and we were promptly processed and escorted to our room which was one of the garden rooms. The rooms are immaculate and are cleaned daily and you are issued 2 bottles of water as part of your package. Family operated so there is a lot of attention to detail especially the beautiful tropical gardens. Pool area is lovely also and very tranquil. Food in the restaurant was of a high standard for dinner and lunch. Great place to stay if you want to sleep, swim and eat. We used this place as a base while my husband was receiving dental treatment and it was a lovely place to come back to and recuperate. There is a very friendly resident cat who given the chance will sneak into your room and claim it as his own! There is a convenience store not far away that you can get alcohol, water, most necessities etc and isn't badly priced. The main street is a five minute walk where you will find clothing stalls, massage shops (we tried just about all of them during our 12 days for pedicures, manicures, facials, massages and foot scrubbing) tour booking offices, tailors, Subway and an excellent selection of restaurants ... Sofia Restaurant is great and most places offer free wi-fi. There is also a sports bar where we managed to catch the footy. Taxi from the airport cost us 1000THB but apparently we should have paid 850 ... still cheap considering the distance.

Negatives ... beds are very hard but I eventually got used to it. No screens on the sliding doors so you must have the doors closed and air con on all night which for some is OK but I felt screens and a ceiling fan may have been more comfortable rather than having the air con blasting all night and waking up feeling groggy. Breakfast doesn't start until 8 am and it isn't buffet so you are limited in your choices and this is probably a bit late for those who want to be off early sightseeing. There is no coffee making facilities in the room despite the advertising and if you're a die hard coffee drinker who needs their morning kick start this could be a problem. They do have a barista and she makes an OK cuppacino but she's not always there. We ended up walking to a neighbouring resort in the main street and making use of their buffet which was about 250THB. Probably the biggest negative is having to walk along a very busy and dangerous road to get to the main street and beach. I wouldn't recommend families making the journey as it would be hot and dangerous by the time you got to the beach. If you want a beach holiday then stay on Karon esplanade so you have direct access.

Room Tip: If you want total privacy then go for something other than the garden rooms although they are privat...

Stayed for one night in this beautiful resort, consisting of immaculate, well decorated rooms surrounding a beautiful pool. It was a 5 minute walk from the lovely Karon beach. and within walking distance of Kata beach bars and restaurants as well. The staff here were extremely helpful and friendly. I would stay here again in a heartbeat, the value is superb.

We stayed at Vanida for one night, we were absolutely satisfied with the hotel.

We arrived around 10pm, the check-in was fast, the hotel staff was very nice and helpful.
We got a room near the pool, it was very nice, and absolutely clean.
The rooms, moreover, the whole hotel is located among trees and plants, very nice and friendly.
The room is big enough, we had enough place to put our clothes (I experienced in another thai hotels that there was only one wardrobe, which is not enough for two).
In the morning (we had not paid breakfast), we ordered breakfast from the menu. Great prices, eg.: banana pancake 80 Baht, sandwich around 120 Baht.

Since there are only 18 rooms, the hotel is quite and friendly.

We enjoyed this one-night-stay at Vanida; we would come back again. :)

We stayed as a couple; March 2013.

Set in lovely gardens with a nice sized pool and sunbathing area. It is quiet of a night time and the rooms are of a good size and very clean. Staff are friendly. About 10 mins walk to beach and main areas of Karon.

We stayed with a group of friends in this hotel for few days and we had a great time.
The bungalows are clean and well maintained. There are trees all around so you are really separated from the noise and busy streets.
We spent hours in the swimming pool relaxing and enjoying the sun. The beach and city center are about 5-10 min walk from the hotel.
The hotel staff was really nice for us, they always tried to help even if their English wasn't perfect.
They also called for us the hotel in Ao Nang and helped us with the reservation.
Overall great experience, we will definitely come back if we're around Phuket again.
