Reviewed 15 February 2009

I've had the most amazing time in Phuket, Thailand. Part of it, really thanks to Lawan Residence. I spent most of my time outside, visiting the islands, outside excursions, shopping and etc, why pay a lot for your hotel? This place has great value for money. All you need is a good night sleep with comfy bed, clean bathrooms, safety box, TV, air conditioner, it has everything you need plus more. I loved the free wifi available in the hotel, helped me to get in touch with people at home. The room that I stayed on had balcony on it. It's not an ocean view, but not bad. Located next to Jung Cye Lot (not sure the spelling) Mall, 5 mins walk to the beach, close to restaurants, massages, very easy to get around. Friendly hotel staff also helped, she gave me some tips for some of the stuff happening that night. So, if you're looking to explore Phuket outdoor and not sleeping in the hotel most of the time, this is the place to stay.

I stayed for 10 nights and was very happy I did. Great value for money with extremely good and personal service - you really feel like a valued guest (thanks Joy and Gary).People have some concerns over the steep steps but I had no problems and the room was large and clean. Location is perfect if you want to be just a little bit away from the main hustle of Bangla but still only 5 mins walk away.
Fully guest friendly too. I recommend this place whole heartedly. Dr. Phil ;-)

I stayed at Lawan Residence for 19 nights in August/ September. I fully recommend it, the staff are very friendly (Joy and Co), the owner Gary is a friendly and approachable chap. Lawan is located close enough to the action of Patong, while not being too close either. The rooms are cleaned very well on a daily basis and there is no need to worry about the security of your personal belongings. I will be staying at the Lawan Residence again upon returning to Patong.

My stay at the Lawan was the best value and experiance during my holiday to Thailand.

Resonable prices, close to beach,malls, clubs, restauants, and non stop nightlife.

Safe in the room was well sized, the staff friendly, and the room was clean and safe.

It was the perfect blend of modern comforts nestled among the thai culture, next visit I intend to bring the whole family to enjoy the entire "thai experiance " with me.

A definate 10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I recently returned from spending 8 nights at the Lawan. The hotel offers all that I look for when I am travelling. I had a spacious clean room with a big, comfortable bed. There was quiet, efficient air conditioning that did not keep me awake.

The location is excellent (less than 3 mins walk to Junkceylon) and a short stroll to the beach. The friendly and helpful staff were great and did all they could to satisfy any request. There is a safety box in room and wi-fi.

I will be returning to Phuket in August and will staying at the Lawan again.
