Located on pristine and relaxing Mai Khao beach on Phuket's north west coast, offering a choice of accommodations including 1 and 2 bedroom villas and suite
On the magnificent west coast of Phuket lies a truly tropical paradise. The Thiwa Ratri hotel offers the ultimate in Thai hospitality with the serenity of a tropical island, the beauty of contemporary Balinese architecture and the comforts of luxury.
This place is well located in the centre of Patong along the inland road - Thanon Rat-U-Thit 200P, about 500m north of Bangla Road. There's some good little restaurants down the road as you walk towards Bangla Road (see my restaurant tips) plus some useful convenience stores, ATM's etc. My room, which I got for 700 baht, was a very good size with a double bed, TV, a/c, fridge, fan, dressing table & stall, wardrobe and was very clean with new towels every day. The bathroom was also very clean and a good size with an electric hot water shower. The staff were OK but I didn't really say much to them during my stay apart from the pleasantry "hello" when I walked by.
This is the perfect place for a family. We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa with a private pool and it was amazing! It is very private and quiet, but when you want more...you can take the Laguna shuttle to any of the resorts or to the beach where there is shopping and dining. All of this is within the Laguna resort complex. We were served breakfast in our villa each morning and the staff was incredibly helpful. They also have a main pool and small restaurant area that is quite nice and close by. I would recommend this resort to families or couples that enjoy the peace and quiet and spacious luxurious accomodations.
The villa was beautifully decorated with a gorgeous pool and sala, and an amazing tub in the master bath. Also, being a part of the Laguna complex is convenient because you can dine at any of the 30 restaurants and charge it to your room.
Best Western Premier Supalai Resort & Spa sits amidst the beautiful scenery of green forest hill with the beautiful view of Po Bay on the North Eastern side of Phuket Island.
Woraburi in Thai means "Splendid City" where the happiness and fairies live. The Hotel is located on Karon Beach, on the edge of Andaman Sea. Each of 207 rooms is well designed, conductive to personal comfort and provides a relaxing atmosphere with private balcony for all rooms.
There are literally thousands of hotels to choose from. Equally important is which beach to choose, that would help you narrow down your heotel choice a lot. We like Kata and Kata Noi beaches because they are smaller and less crowded and just seem to be friendlier.
Near these beaches you have dozens of hotels to choose from, either from the internet or by shopping around once you get on the ground, although it is so much easier to have reservations prior. Even during the busy season, which is now, you'll still have plenty of choices without reservations, and there are many places that do not have web sites that are clean and comfortable.
There are dozens of web sites to choose form as well. Try www.asiawebdirect.com and search from that site, reliable and informative.
Good luck and have fun

I and my family stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and it was a pleasant stay. I booked 2 studio rooms. When I checked in , the staff informed me that they upgraded us to 2 one-bedroom rooms. The room was big and cozy. Service was great. We rode a free shuttle bus to Cape Panwa Hotel to enjoy the beach over there
Patong Lodge Hotel is located on a green hill facing Kalim Beach, and at northern end of Patong Beach, Phuket. I stayed here on my first visit to Phuket in 91. Patong was at that time a quiet place. The hotel is just a few minutes walk to the beach, only a short distance to Patong’s nightlife, shopping and dining centers, 30 minutes drive to Phuket town and 45 minutes drive to Phuket International Airport.
We were a family of 10, which included two small children aged 2 and a half and 5 years old.
We booked 5 double rooms, 2 of which were inter-leading for the children and their parents.
The food was outstanding. I could not believe how they could come up with different choices for the buffet for every meal.
We had Thai food, Japanese, Western and Chinese to choose from.
All meals (3 per day) are included in your package, as well as cocktails (alcoholic and virgin), beer and red and white wines. As much as you needed or wanted, as well as all soft drinks and milk shakes for the children.
All drinks could be taken down to the beach as well.
We had cocktails whilst watching the sunset on the beach every evening.
Great facilities; Spa, Hair salon, Yoga, 9 hole golf, water-aerobics etc.
Entertainment every night, with a different show.
Club Med overlooks Kata Bay. The bungalows, built in the style of the local long-houses with teak silk and marble finishes.
The children had a play area with their own shallow pool if wanted.
I highly recommend the Pineapple Guest House.
We, being me the old man, my lovely wife and the intrepid one - my 11 yr old son, spent a week at the Pineapple. We chose a King room w/an extra bed (a thin mattress on the floor) for the intrepid one. That set us back 750 THB / night (about $25 USD). I'll start from the inside and work out.
The room was clean, dominated by the king size bed with the usual firm SEAsia mattress,. There is a small one drawer desk w/mirror, a small table which spent most of its tabling holding about a 21" JVC TV with a compliment of satellite channels and a good sized fridge with a few beverages. The far wall of the room had a large window opens onto Karon Plaza below. You can climb out the window and make use of the balcony if you wanted to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Plaza. The balcony is narrow, but good for towel drying in the afternoon sun. The bath was very clean and is the typical one room does all guest house affair. It carries the slightly off smell of third world plumbing. Small bars of soap and shampoo packets are provided, always a nice touch in my book. The room has a good air con and they provided a fan at our request.
The Guest House:
The Pineapple is comprised of two side-by-side two story shop lots and the entire third floor of the building. It is the central shop in a building comprising about 8 shop lots. The ground floor has the office, which is where the you-keep-the-key lockers are provided for your valuables and the back portion of this provides the living quarters for Steve and his wonderful wife Lek (?sp) and a bunch of other family which I never quite figured out. Laundry is provide in the back of this section for the Karon beach standard price of 5 TBH / kg. The 2nd floor landing has the free-to-guest pc, the wi-fi working bits and a small reference library with travel guides etc. It is also where the bunk bed dorm is. The entire 3rd floor is guest rooms plus a small sitting area with the pulp library consisting of about 200 paperbacks.
In the adjoining shop is the restaurant / bar. It's more restaurant than bar but does have a nice selection of liquors. The food is good and priced to the Karon market. My only knock on the restaurant is I had to fight the mosquitoes every morning as I ate breakfast, no matter where I go they always seem to find me. They did not bother my wife or son.
The Pineapple is set in Karon Plaza, which is in the smaller of two commercial areas of Karon beach. The larger being at Karon circle. In between are the Mega resorts. The Plaza is at the intersection of the main road and the road to the beach. It is a leisurely 10 min walk to the beach. I'm sure a dedicated beach hound could sprint walk in less than 5. In and around the plaza are an assortment of restaurants, beer bars, guest houses, boutique hotels, tailors, t-shirt vendors, tour agencies, thai massage etc. Italian, Thai and Scandinavian food are ubiquitous. It seems there are more Scandinavians than locals sometimes. You can just follow the trail of these shops right to the beach. Someone said that Karon beach is the longest in Phuket, and it seemed that way to me. Maybe a two km long stretch of double depth lounge chairs and umbrellas set on a squeaky clean sand beach looking out into the Andaman Sea, or is it the Indian Ocean? Nice, but lots of people. I only gave 3 stars on the location because if you look you can find guest houses set in the trees away from the commerce.
The Recommendation: A great place to stay. The staff is great! Steve, Lek and the gang are always ready with helpful advice and a smile. The atmosphere is quiet and laid-back. I would stay here just to get to see them again. Plenty of the things you need are nearby. My only nit was the squeaky hinges on the bath door, woke me several times. I'm sure they would have fixed it, but I just never could remember until the next time I heard the noise. Farewell fellow traveler.
