“Perfect hotel if your day is full of tours”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2012

we are a couple with a toddler.

Room: spacious, clean and with a beautiful view of the ocean.

Beach: little, very polluted water, not good for swimming at all.

Pool: big and not crowded but not the clearest. Algae growing around, you can't see the bottom!!

Location: far away from everything except the Pier to take you to other places. you can't walk much around. is located in an area full with locals.

Service is all right. And hotel is ok in general but I expected more from a 4 stars.

Husband was very happy with the views, as he is a photographer but me and baby spent some time locked in our room.

Not a good hotel.

Food is institutional basic - breakfast was stale pastries, a mound of soggy french toast, and stewed coffee. Staff were unfriendly and unhelpful at best, and at worst would lie blatantly. It is a bit remote, and the half-hour walk into the center of Chalong is along a busy main road with no pavements and overhead cables dipping down to head-height in places. Taxis prices are ridiculously high, and unless you want to spend your stay exclusively on their beach and pool, you'll end up spending as much or more on taxis as you do on the hotel. I had no hot water in my room.

To top it all off, they tried to triple-charge me when I left.

Avoid unless desperate.

The hotel is in the residential Chalong area, about 25 minutes to Patong Night life. With my friends, we used the hotel shuttle bus in evening to go to Bangla Patong. Only 100 bath per person to be in the entrance of Bangla road, thanks for this useful service.
Clear and modern room with outstanding view on Chalong bay and islands.
We tried too the free kayaking in the bay from the hotel beach : chalong bay is a lake, the kayaking is easy and amazing.
I will go back in this hotel.

Room Tip: Seaview rooms on the 4th floor, the best.

If you're looking for an hotel with a just comfortable room to plan your daily trips to visit all what Phuket has to offer, well than you're at the right place. If you are looking for an hotel with night life at your doorstep, this is really not the place to go.

The service wasn't that great. Where was the Thai smile? Most of the staff didn't speak/understand English at all, something you would expect from a 4 star hotel run by Frenchman.

Love this hotel. It's the right place for my kids.
The room is clean and spacious. The pool and bar are nice with friendly service.
The fish spa is awesome.

Chalong is a bit out stranded from other beaches, but there is a supermarket 500m from this place--- not that bad.

Definitely come back again next year!!!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2010

A group of 4 19yr olds, we stayed here for 2 nights on a recent trip. We found the whole experience to be quite eerie.

The hotel- lobby, corridors- is uneccesarily large and coupled with the tiny number of guests, gave a bit of a horror-movie feeling to the place. We ran into nobody in the corridors, at nighttime ours were the only room lights on, and for 2 nights we were the only people dining at the beautiful beach-front restaurant. The rooms, though, are clean, fresh, spacious and lovely. If you like peace and quiet then you'll find it here, but it really was unnerving.

The hotel is right on the beach, but swimming is out. The tide is out most of the time, locals said there were rays about and the water was a bit polluted. Everybody reccomended we swam elsewhere, so we had to take a day trip to get any beach swimming in. Having said that, there are some locals that offer a reasonably priced half-day trip to Banana Beach, Coral Island which was very pleasant with quite good snorkelling. Also, the hotel pool is FABULOUS, so this is another swimming option.

The food offered by the hotel is lacking- breakfast, lunch and dinner. Mostly quite disappointing, although the cocktails are great. Both mornings, although having gone to breakfast well before finishing time, there was almost nothing left to eat.

The actual Chalong area is very very quiet, with not a lot to do. The reception staff were helpful in booking ferry trips and the like, but you really have to leave Chalong to do much.

Overall the physical hotel and pool were lovely, but location, beach access, eating and atmosphere were not. I would not recommend.
