The Chanalai garden resort was the first place we stayed at in Thailand and it was perfect! As you arrive, you receive nothing but warm welcomes and friendly, helpful service. The resort is about a two minute walk from the beach where you can snorkel, rent paddle boards or even surf. The resort has two pools, we used the bigger...

This is a 206 room hotel on about nine different levels. If you don't like stairs don't come because there are lots of stairs. Was clean, quiet and good value. Just watch all the stairs. I was there for a week, not a problem.

Where to begin......so much to say and I wonder when reading other reviews if we stayed at the same place? Firstly, staff and management are great especially Miss Aoy and Miami who are helpful and friendly, always with a greeting and ready smile along with all the other staff. The gym is also very good if that's what you are...

Stayed here Nov/Dec 2016 for 10 days and loved it. The location is perfect - just opposite Kata beach and close to everything. We were on the top floor overlooking the resort pool and beach and the views were spectacular. Rooms were spacious and very clean. Bathrooms have a quite small bath/shower combined but it is fine. Buffet breakfast is...

Went to this hotel in November 2016. Location ok but lots of stairs in and around hotel to get to your room. And in the heat can be a bind. This aside we found the label of service a bit lacking for a hotel in Thailand. Been to different hotels here like the Andaman Canacia and found service far better....
