Went to the resort for a couple of nights with some girlfriends. We had a two bedroom villa with a plunge pool. The villa was lovely, great furnishing and very comfortable. Plunge pool was completely average as you find with these types of places. It was almost like an oversized pond. It had foliage over looking it so always had...

Dear Petrina v- thank you for taking the time to post your comments about your recent "girlie weekend" stay with us. Although you have commented on a few items that require attention, I also note that they were an anomaly during the experience of your stay.

This is our second time to Phuket. The first time staying in busy Patong, so decided for a quieter option away from the hustle and bustle in Surin. We are a family of 6 (children aged 9 to 3) and we had such an amazing time at the Chava. Peter and his staff were very friendly and thoughtful. It was...

Dear mckaykerrie- thanks to you for choosing The Chava for your recent family holiday. Although our Apartments are set for 4 guests, when families with young children are travelling together we can squeeze a few extra little ones in, and given our smallest Apartment is 160 square metres, everybody remains comfortable. Lots of nearby dining options within a 5 minute...

Fantastic resort for our fitness retreat, the staff here are the friendliest in Thailand. Restaurant by the pool so peaceful and the hanging curtains of foliage and frangipanis are stunning. Go no further than Chava when staying in Surin beach area.

Stayed at various hotels and houses in Phuket - love the climate, the food etc - but Chava has now become our number one destination for future visits - almost don't want to share on Tripadvisor, but that would be doing the team at Chava a disservice. Wonderful location a three minute walk to the delightful Surin Beach, but surrounded...

After much searching for quality lodgings for our family Phuket visit, I was not disappointed with my choice of The Chava resort. Surin Beach area is quieter than the insanity (and tackiness) of Patong, and suited us perfectly for our visit. The hotel itself has quality rooms and we treated ourselves to a two bedroom super sized penthouse room, and...

Our stay in July was absolutely great! A beautiful resort, amazing staff - particularly the General Manager Peter. Peter went out of his way to make sure our time at The Chava was a delight - from making reservations at nearby restaurants to organizing our nanny. Can't thank the Peter and his team enough!
