“Fantastic stay and great price for the area!”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

This place was right in between Kata and Karon beaches so it was an ideal setting. It is a little trek up the hill like everyone says, but having it off the main drag does make it feel more relaxed and really, the hill isn't that bad. The room itself was decent enough for what you pay. The owner is a very nice lady and extremely laid back. She is helpful with anything you need, scooter rentals, transportation to other parts of the island, or other excursions on the island. We were booked for 9 days but because we decided that we wanted to see more of Thailand we decided to leave after 2. There with no further charges or cancellation fees. This is something that I can't say about many other places in the world! Overall I would definitely recommend this place if you're looking for a decent room and want to save some cash in an otherwise overpriced area.

Me n my wife had a short trip to Phuket last week and we really enjoyed staying here, the lady was nice to give us the corner room with a beautiful little view of the sea, and very breezy especially during the night. Being the off season we got a very good price and are totally happy with the accommodation, the rooms are clean and has all the essentials, being on top of a small hill its better to hire a motor bike and there is a rental shop hardly 100 meters on the left side of the road Totally satisfied and wouldn't mind staying here again.

Fantasy Hills Bungalows has been our home away from home. The property is set up on a hill back from the road which gives it a nice, quiet, secluded feeling, however walk down the driveway & you have everything you need right there (minimart, restaurants, bus stop, shopping, Karon & Kata beach five minutes walk in either direction). The accommodation while we have been here (5 weeks) has been superb for what we pay, the rooms are light & airy, bed's comfy, hot water 24/7, fan & aircon & free wifi. The biggest added bonus has been El the lovely lady who runs these bungalows, she has been so helpful, friendly & hospitable. I sprained my ankle & El & her family drove me to the hospital & waited, cooked dinners for my children & went above & beyond. You dont just get great accomodation here, you also get a fantastic family.

Fantasy Hill is great value. Especially considering its in an area which is generally over priced. If you're looking for a low budget option in the Kata/Karon beach area (it's actually between the two) this is it. Up a hill off the road means its reasonably quiet and the staff are helpful and friendly. You can hire motorbikes here, they do a great (and cheap) breakfast and they'll do your laundry for you.

Fantasy Hill Bungalow is a lovely guest house situated between Kata Yai and Karon Beaches. The proprietress is extremely hospitable, the surroundings are lovely, and the accommodations are very good for a guest house in south east Asia.

Of course, when it comes to accommodations, the key is location. Fantasy Hill Bungalow is situated close to both Kata Yai and Karon beaches. It's right in the middle of the fray, but the property itself is a quiet garden setting and feels very secluded despite its central location.

It offers all the amenities a traveler could desire - bikes for rent, breakfast, tea, beers, tour and travel bookings. But most significant is the proprietress, Sirithorn Chopol, is a wonderful, down to earth lady who is an absolute delight. I would recommend this place to anyone.

It is such a nice and quiet place located among the busy area. Our stay there was pleasant. Booking was as easy as simply writing an email. Rooms are clean and big enough. No wonder the rooms might be full during high season.

Beware that you must trek up a short steep hill to get to the hotel.. but this is well worth it as you are somewhat away from the noise of the street. The hotel is safe, clean, staff are friendly. I have stayed here twice now and i would stay here again. It's worth calling to book a room as the hotel can be very busy. The location is fabulous. Thanks to the staff for being great!

Room Tip: I stayed in both a fan room and an air con room - the fan room is great.
