    If you are planning to stay at the delightful Rawai beach end area of Phuket and want a quiet haven of peace delivered with a warm welcome try the Smile House.
    I love this place and stay each time I return as it is reasonably priced with very clean bungalows and a great pool.
    It's not flash just friendly! Michael, the German Harley riding owner is a great host but if you just want to Chill it's a good place.
    Happy days!

    Room Tip: It's a small resort so there is not a huge number of rooms to choose from. This doesn't matter because in my experience all the bungalows are equally good.

    We stayed at the smile house for the first 2 nights of our holiday and were very impressed. The staff were helpful and efficient, it's location is fab just a few seconds walk to the sea & it has a lovely pool area! Bars, restaurants and shops are on the doorstep and on a Friday there is a fantastic market on the street outside the hotel selling authentic food, cocktails, souvenirs etc! Would definitely stay here again.

    As Brits who have lived in Asia for over a year, we really enjoyed the fantastic cooked breakfast! The friendly owners made us feel very welcome. We had a lovely, little bungalow. Everything we needed for my husband and I to have a lovely weekend away. The only down-side for us was probably the location, a little bit away from eating places etc. but not a major problem.

    We (myself, husband, sister-in-law) shared a two-room bungalow for 11 days at Smile House over the Christmas period. We loved the quiet, rural location overlooking hills in Rawai, but also the ease of driving to the best beach in Phuket (Nai Harn) and local sights near Chalong (Wat Chalong, Big Buddha). Phil and Wendy were very helpful hosts, and were also able to dish up some fantastic English breakfast food - I recommend the bubble with sausage especially! They were also happy to recommend things to do each day. Going to a day spa was an excellent idea, as was the tour to Phi Phi Island they recommended and organised for us (at a discount price!). The bungalow was great - the rooms were airconditioned and comfortable, and the place was very clean and kept clean every day. The gardens are spotless and the pool is the best thing possible after a long international flight or at the end of a sweaty day of sightseeing. It was exactly the experience we were looking for and I don't think I'd stay anywhere else in Phuket, especially after having visited the busier places on the west coast. The only downsides were that you either had to organise day trips or taxis everyday, or rent a car/motorbike, as there is nowhere to walk to - but we found the driving in Phuket suited us and renting a car worked out well. Also the room we had did have cable TV, but not the best reception, so perhaps this would not be the best place if you like to watch a lot of TV on your holiday. Besides these minor things, everything else worked out really well and I'd definitely recommend Smile House to family and friends.

    We stayed a couple of days at Smile House, Wendy and Phil were fine hosts and very helpful. They are very laid back which fits in with the resort. Such a pity it rained so much, so did not get to see the beaches etc in their full glory. The pool is lovely and the gardens are well maintained. All very good value for money....
