Blue Ocean Resort: Pool Value
Very pleasant stay although the airconditioning wasn't working. The place is very new, and the decor very pleasing, there is a little pool with a pool bar for you to chill out at on the days you don't want to squeeze with the rest on the beach. The price is good for the quality of the resort. It's not got any fanciful hotel stationery and additional things but it's comfortable, and quiet.
A very nice pool, and very asian architecture, cosy layout. See my Phuket page for the pictures.

Guesthouses and Lodges: General Accomodation Tips
In general these are quite clean, readily available (at short notice most times) and very affordable. They are willing to take you up to view the rooms and the facilities. The quality of such accomodation is quite standard and you can choose the ones a distance from the bars to ensure quiet in the nights, as well as privacy and safety. It is often good to bargain. Bargaining during off-peak season is especially fruitful.

APK Hotel: Very New Hotel
This is new hotel just open for business for 3 days, just nice to caugh the chinese new year clowd. We are been introduce to this hotel by the agency, and they claim that all others hotel already fully book...
They are charging 2500 BHT for a night, and 4000 BHT for 2 nights. Actually for that quality, its sound a bit expensive. But we have no choice to take this.. cos its already around 10.30pm and tired of the 24 hours travelling.
This hotel is pretty ok, small swimming pool, clean room, clean toilet... just that the lift are not working yet.
The service are fine, people are nice.
They serve american breakfast, egg, ham, bacons, bread, and some fried meehon and fried rice... not bad...
Everythings is fine here, except you need a 15 minute walk to the beach and party area... and its just a bit too far for me after all the travelling.

The Chedi made all the difference
For a truly memorable experience in sometimes over-crowded Phuket, stay at THE CHEDI. I cannot rave enough about it. Most beautiful resort with individual chalets & private sundeck. Gorgeous waves. Very transquil & romantic. gd svc.
Its about 20mins by Tuk-tuk (a fun ride in itself) to Patong Beach (main shopping area & nightlife, very touristy). Close enough to the fun, far from the chaos and crowd.

Tiaramia, I have lived in Kata now for three years. There is a hotel right on the beach for 500 baht per night. Any money you save staying in Phukettown will be spent on transportation back and forth and you will end up spending more. There is no need to pre book for June, you will only limit yourself. You can book a trip to Phi Phi when you get here. If you are really on a budget you are welcome to stay on my couch(free)

Phuket Sea Resort Rawai Beach: Phuket Sea Resort - formerly Maalai Resort
We have stayed many times at Phuket Sea Resort which is on the beach road at Rawai Beach & the hotel is in a lovely location.
Their low season walk in rates are fantastic, we paid 1200 baht per night which included breakfast.
Everything you need like restaurants, supermarket, atm's etc are only a few meters away.
We were in a pool view room which was perfect, a few steps and you are in the pool.
The rooms are spotless, freezing air conditioning and the bed is comfortable, plus there is wireless internet, a fantastic pool bar and secure parking.
I would not stay here in high season due to no privacy, if there is anyone in the rooms on the other side of the pool you can see straight into one another's rooms. But for us in low season it is perfect and we will definitely stay at Maalai resort again.
All the staff were very helpful and friendly, they were an absolute pleasure to be around.

Patongsub Inn: Good option in central Patong
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.

Villareal-Heights: Exceptional Villareal-Heights
I just completed a five night stay beginning on February 5, 2010 at Villareal-Heights. And what I noticed upon arrival was the exceptional service from the owner/manager, Paul and his lovely wife Jo. As the taxi he arranged for me arrived at Villareal, Paul was outside waiting for my arrival. Imediately I felt like he was a long lost friend as we began talking. He showed me to my apartment and also gave me recomendations on where to have my evening meal. He also offered to drive me around the next day to show me the area. I have been to Phuket twice but never the Kata Beach area. Every thing and every place Paul drove me to turnd out to be excellent recomendations that I took advantage of. He even arranged for me a rental car at an excellent rate which was delivered and picked up at Villareal. I have stayed at 5-star hotel and resorts that did not give me the personalized service Paul and his wife Jo provided. The apartment was even better than the photo's and was more than adaquate. I would recomend Villareal-Heights to anyone.
Villareal-Heights is within walking distance to excellent resturants and shopping. A good 10-15 minute walk to one of the best beaches I have seen.
All the staff to include house keeping provide personal attention to your every need.

Phuket Anantara: Anantara Phuket Resort
The Anantara Phuket has only been open a few months. It is one of the most luxurious pool villa resorts on Phuket. The mai Khao beach where the Phuket Anantara is located at Mai Khao Beach, a very quiet beach area in the north west of the island. The Anantara is not cheap, but is ideal if you are looking for luxury in a quiet area of Phuket away from the crowds. Anantara is an excellent group that provides very much a Thai style to their resorts.
Good service. The promotion rates that can be found reduces the price with their special free night offers.
Excellent design of villas and the resort. Good promotion deals from now through until the end of October 2009

Great hotel: Karon Princess Hotel
This hotel is in a central location about half way between Patong beach ( 7kms ) and Kata beach. The rooms are what you would expect for this price range..........double bed, aircon, TV, mini bar reasonable bathroom and free breakfast included which is also not bad with a good choice. The hotel is oblong shapped with the resturant at the front by the road which is not busy and the swimming pool at the rear. When we were there a hotel next door was being built but the noise didn't really bother us. There is a poolside bar which sells large fantastic cocktails.
Two points to note here is
1.the beach infront of the hotel is dangerous to swim in at certain times of the year so you either take the risk or have to travel to another beach
2.The resort here is spread out and not at all busy with a few resturants next to the hotel and the rest in Karon town which is about a 20 minute walk.
There is a Taxi/Tuk Tuk stop outside the hotel but these are very expensive, about 500 TB to patong so if you've got the nerve hire a scooter out. We hired out 2 scooters for 2 weeks at £2 a day each but be careful because this is without insurance. We had a punture in one one day and it was down to us to sort it out and pay for it...............all part of the experience again
There is also quite a big market next to the hotel
I would definately recommend this hotel but only to people that would be okay with hiring a car or scooters
Couldn't fault anything
