Dear Rosemary J- Steve, Rosie, Robbie & Michael- we are very thankful that you chose The Chava for your recent visit to Phuket. As you have pointed out Surin Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, and our location has you in close proximity to many of the attractions available on Phuket. We are 20 minutes and THB500 away from Patong Beach-close enough for some, far enough away for most. Thank you also for the favorable comment about our great team of people here-very appreciated. Hope to see you again soon, regards Peter J.

The Chava resort in Phuket is the place you can call it home while you are away, it is cozy, and the stuff are friendly and generous people.
We had a great time over there. very nice and clean apartments, I loved the pool a lot and in term of the location it is amazing surrounded by nice shops and restaurants (beside the resort's delicious menu), and Surin beach where you will find interesting things to do, whatever is your taste :)

Room tip: Swimming pool view. Everything else is great :)

Once again we have enjoyed two weeks of relaxation and luxury at the Chava. Beautiful food, surroundings, laid back atmosphere, wonderful staff and management really do make this the best place to chill out and destress. If you are into the party scene, this place is not for you - if you are after a peaceful, relaxing break with family and friends then the Chava will not disappoint. Many thanks to Peter and Sharon - hands on, can-do management, Zea and the other girls at reception, and to Risa, Jeab, Fern, Wich, and Nuna for catering to our every need.
We shall return. Michael, Rowina and Stephanie

Room tip: Any of the rooms are fine - we have stayed in B04 which is close to the main pool and has its own plunge pool - this year we stayed in B15 which is on the third floor overlooking the pool.

What a sensational,stress-free break from Melbourne's cold winter.Stayed at Chava for 10 days in mid August (for the first time).We had a fully airconditioned,first class,luxurious apartment. The pool and surrounds were immaculately maintained and Peter and his staff provided quality yet un-obtrusive service . Pool-side breakfasts and lunches at Chava were followed by fab dining at
one of the many restaurants along Surin beach.Peter and Sharon organized our Muay Thai training at 2 of the local facilities which we attended almost daily !! We are planning our next trip
to Chava (with friends) now.

Room tip: Rooms facing the pool are a must !

Dear Frank and Sue- Stress relief is our speciality! Thank you for choosing The Chava for you first visit to Phuket, and I am so glad you found everything to your liking. Chatting with you during your stay to find out a little more about you both, makes your comments even more valuable to me! To receive such glowing comments from such a well respected hospitality professional as yourself is very pleasing indeed-thank you. You have also got me hooked on Muay Thai training as a wonderful aerobic workout routine- I'm still going! Hope to see you back in Surin Beach very soon. Cheers, Peter J.

Having stayed before, we returned to the Chava for a week's stay in August to enjoy a relaxing and stress-free break... and we weren't disappointed!

The resort is beautifully appointed, modern and well-maintained. The apartments are absolutely gorgeous, with all the mod-cons you'd normally miss if you stayed in other hotels.

The staff were friendly, helpful and unobtrusive and the Manager, Peter was super helpful with ready advice and suggestions. Nothing was a trouble for him and his local knowledge was an absolute bonus in making sure we really experienced the best of the area - fantastic dining, cocktails and quiet little beaches.

Thank you for a wonderfully relaxing time at the Chava and Surin.
