I stayed for a week here for base of day-diving boat trips. The marina is only a few minutes walk, and a nice restaurant is also closely located. The room was clean and sufficient for night-stay only. The service of the stuff was satisfactory. A big home center with supermarket and restaurants is located at 15 minutes walk in the opposite direction of the harbor beyond an intersection four-forked road.

Caution! The localization of this hotel on the tripadvisor web site map was inncorrect.

This is the second time we've stayed here and left for a live-aboard diving trip from Chalong Pier. My partner/wife and I love it and now love the spa too. It is a great place for a short trip with comfortable rooms and a great little cafe attached to it. The only complaint is the very hard beds. We don't like platform beds. Everything else is wonderful. All staff are very helpful and many speak English quite well.

Room Tip: Take a room overlooking the pool on the second floor.

The hotel was lovely - It was about average, maybe slightly overpriced, but worth it to get off of the busy street and into the garden lined halls. BUT! The real reason to go to the hotel - the spa. Best I found in all of Thailand. The Thai massage was incredible - professional (the two ladies that were massaging my husband and I didn't talk to each other the whole time - as is the case in every other spa in Thailand). Also, it was clear that these women had very specific training - not just a one hour training session when hired. I also had a facial - phenomenal. The products they use - their own organic line - is amazing. I have troublesome skin and am very wary about what I use - this was amazing.

Exceptional value for the quality of the room, amenities and services. The spa is really good, i had a fabulous organic facial. I didn't expect the hotel to be so lovely. The rooms are very cheerful with nice design touches and quiet at night. The staff were very friendly and helpful. In a great location for diving and the dive shop next door has all the latest stuff. Would def stay again

Never judge a book by its cover.
I dont understand why some people made bad comments about this hotel but we had a wonderful night sleeping here before leaving to Phi Phi Island with Escape-Artist Power Cats managed by Epic-Charter Boat Company.
Pier 42 is close to the marina and i think the hotel is pretty cute, the rooms are clean and i had nothing to complain about :)

Loved the decor at P42. Quiet location.Nice small pool and sunbathing area to hang out. Great little shop for buying presents for friends.The staff were really helpful and always organised to get a taxi to the nearby beach . The spa treatments were so good. Well worth the money.I could not find an equivalent level hotel in the Chalong area

We wanted a quiet location and not to have to travel to far to get to the diving boats which were right opposite the hotel at chalong pier. Pier 42 was perfect choice. A lovely small hotel with nicely designed quirky rooms.The staff were very helpful and the Spa treatments and service on offer was right up there with any top international hotel spa at a much lower price. We really looked forward to getting back to the hotel after a day of diving or on the beach which was a 10 minute taxi ride away.
