I stayed here with the extended family (19 of us in total). The Chava is great! Apartments huge and very clean, the pool was welcome relief from the heat and loved by adults and kids. The restaurant served up delicious food and all the staff incredibly friendly and helpful. I would come back and will definitely recommend. Terrific spot for...

Staying in the twin palms and eatingvat a few of the local places. Tried this one tonight... Not Good. Green curry and a massaman tasted of nothing much, maybe a bit of salt. Totally wasted dinner opportunity. To be fair the place was empty and the staff looked pretty unhapoyvwhen we arrived. Vegetable spring roles a la mums gone to...

Dear jasonmo2014- thank you for taking the time to comment on your recent disapointing experience in our casual poolside dining area. Whilst we don't pretend to offer "Thai fine dining" as your title suggests, the many good comments that we receive, often with reference to the dishes that you mentioned, suggest that we had a very poor night. I most...

Six couples booked rooms at the Chava resort. Our stay was amazing. The staff was super helpful. They helped with a passport issue. They recommended several amazing restaurants. The rooms were fantastic! The pool was nice. The property was close to restaurants, foot massages and just a short walk to a very nice beach. Peter, the Manager, was especially helpful...

What a Gem!!!! The staff is really doing everything to accommodate you. Transportation from/to the airport is well managed by the Chava's staff. The location is awesome, when you're tired of the pool, you walk about 200m and you're on a white sand beach. The rooms are amazing because of the space but also the features. We will definitely visit...

We had our recent group event at CHAVA as a partner rewards event. The resort offers all the best in location to the beach, markets and local hotspots to check out. Our room was HUGE and first class with modern features and facilities. I would highly recommend this Resort to anyone planning a trip to PHUKET. Brad

I did so much research before finally choosing the Chava. Instead of a hotel you stay in serviced apartments- which basically just feels like a hotel but with massive rooms and the use of a full kitchen. I was staying for five days with my girlfriend so it really felt luxurious to each have our own bedroom and bathroom plus...
