"Thavorn Village & Spa"
We had to switch hotels because of the construction to the Thavorn Village & Spa villa which is very different. The resort is north of Patong and is isolated making it more expensive and troublesome to get to town. However, it was quiet and private and deluxe which was nice. The cable car ride to the villa was different and gave us a view of the ocean […] from up above. Perfect place for a romantic get away but was still nice change of pace for me and my kids.

"Karon Beach Stay"
Stayed 6 nights 12/10/2014 to 18/10/2014. Found the hotel good value & good service. The room was really nice but the bed was a little hard as were the pillows. The Old Siam restaurant on site was really great & great service there too. They make a nice pizza down at the cafe on the beach road. Fantastic gardens & pools for all ages. We enjoyed our […] stay & would stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Thavorn is a beautiful location to stay. The hotel is a little dated but we found we were hardly in our room. The rooms are still clean and spacious. The gardens were amazing not only for children but for adults. Our children loved how there are rabbits, chickens and lizards on the grounds. They provide food for chickens and rabbits so kids can […] feed them. So many pools to choose from. 7 pools from memory. The hotel is right across the rd from the beach with amazing sunsets. You also have a range of shopping and eating only 2 minutes walk from the hotel. The only thing we could fault was the bathroom walls which was made of glass so you could see right through. On the 5th night we found curtains. Lucky we had another 5 nights. Also good for kids but it doesn't have all the play stuff in the pools for the younger ones 2ys to 6yrs. We had 10yrs and 13yrs so they loved it. We still saw young children equally enjoying themselves. The hotel caters for a lot of Russian and European and have translation. Also for Chinese. Overall an amazing experience and finally a holiday where no one wants to go home. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Thavorn Palm Beach Resort - Highly Recommended"
Loved staying at the Thavorn Palm Beach Resort. Amazing!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good for familes with young children"
Near the beach, big beds, nice pools. Had a ground floor unit which was nice and accessible to the pools for my daughter. Could work on the cleanliness of the rooms though. Food bit overpriced. Overall enjoyed our stay and will be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, but slightly overpriced in my opinion."
Hotel location is very good. Right opposite the beach and about 5 - 10 mins walk left of the hotel to the shops and restaurants. Very nice gardens with roaming rabbits and chickens which my daughter enjoyed patting and feeding... 5 swimming pools with 3 kid pools. 2 kid pools are attached to the big swimming pools, the kid pool in front of the abandoned […] kid club doesn't seem to be much of use though. Most of the kids are swimming in the big pools... Staffs are on the average friendly except for those during breakfast.. Breakfast is of a good variety, good mix of American continental as well as Asian. Room is of a comfortable size with a big terrace overlooking the pools, gardens and a bit of seaview. The lifts are under renovation during our stay. I wish they consider giving me the first floor rooms instead of the second floor rooms so I don't have to carry my 2 years old up and down the stairs...the first floor rooms is of direct access to the gardens... Bed and pillows are slightly too hard for my preference and we requested for a king size bed but it's actually 2 twin beds combined together.. so you will feel the bump in the middle.. on a overall, the stay was pretty pleasant but average.

"Good for a relaxing stay."
A nice, relaxed atmosphere and cheerful staff. Presentation was excellent, especially the gardens. Service was generally good but could be a little slow. When we booked it was not clear that there was a busy road between the hotel and the beach and that spoiled things a little.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Marvelous Thavorn Palm Beach Resort, Phuket"
Stayed at Thavorn Palm Beach Resort with my wife for 5 nights in April 2013. Stay at the hotel was amazing and unforgettable. Beautifully landscaped gardens, swimming pools and sea beach in front of the hotel provided a natural and wonderful experience. The resort was a perfect place for vacation. Resort staff was cooperative. House keeping was excellent. […] Buffet breakfast was lavish and full of hygiene. Location of the resort was also good, convenient for shopping. Would love to stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel. Will be fantastic when fully finished"
Fantastic room. Great setting & gorgeous grounds, including the swimming pools. There is ongoing hotel renovation which means noise from workmen tools and some facilities (eg shops) were not available.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Thavorn Palm Beach Resort - Karon Beach"
Love staying at the Thavorn Palm Beach. We always stay there when we travel to the Karon area, it is without a doubt our favourite hotel/resort in Phuket. Staff are magnificent, most professional with an amazing casual attitude which says "nothing is a problem". The 20 plus acres of grounds/vegetation/orchid gardens are a nature reserve and stepping […] around a rabbit, native hen or lyrebird when walking the grounds is quite amazing. Pools are beautiful and the grounds/gardens are amazing and ever changing. No better place to see a Phuket sunset. We look forward to our next stay at the Thavorn.

"Nice place to stay"
We really enjoyed the hotel overall however we booked a standard room where the air condition wasnt working properly and our view out the window was out onto a side street. I would recommend staying here as the grounds and pools were lovely to relax in but would recommend booking a deluxe room. We are also from Australia and found the hotel to be full […] of mostly Russians, we were even given all our hotel information in Russian, I had to ask to have it changed to English.

Отдыхали с 24 ноября по 04 декабря 2013г., уже второй раз. Очень хорошее место, Рядом море и рестораны, в тоже время очень тихо. В этот раз местные растарались и много предлагают русской кухни, что хорошо родителям с детьми. В номере все чисто и по первому требованию меняют пляжные полотенца ( 5-10 минут). На рецепшен работает Адель, который всегда […] поможет не опытным туристам. Территория большая и чистая, по которой гуляют кролики и петушки. Обязательно приедем сюда через год!

Die Hotelanlage liegt nur durch eine Strasse getrennt am Sandstrand. Die Ausenanlage ist mit viel Liebe gemacht mit vielen Pflanzen, Skulpturen, und 3 grossen Schwimmbädern. Die Gebäude wurden 2010 renoviert. Die Zimmer sind gross, saubere und gut beleuchtet aber die Klimaanlage war zu laut.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
チェックインして、冷蔵庫を開いたら、びしょびしょの食パンが残ってた。深夜なので仕方なく、自分で片付けました。また、チェックアウト時には、使ってもいないのに、ルームバーの請求されました。システムがそう記録しているとか、訳の解らないことを言いましたが、冷蔵庫の清掃していないのに、それ以前の問題では？もめるのが、いやだったので、仕方なくはらいましたが。ぢ、プールだけは、広くて良いかも。Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Clean and tranquil"
12/19/14 Mike-Akdeniz Melbourne, Australia
The hotel restaurants serve good quality food, the pools and gardens are pleasant . The beach across the road is magic. The head chef Mr. Danilo and the room area director Ms. Janya added positive energy to the resort. Mike From Melbourne

This is a best hotel in the 4 star price with a spacious rooms and good food choices in the breakfast for the non vegetarians but nice choice for the vegetarians to. Lush Green resort with awesome fountains and small ponds with tropical fishes all around the hotel areas. It has some of the rarest and oldest bonsins. And yes located close to the best Indian restaurant in the area. The beach is just 200 metres from the hotel. The staff is really Co operative and always smiling to help you in all the ways. Even we got the room upgraded. Will love to go back to this resort once again
"Excellent hotel with beautiful grounds"
12/13/14 Amin C
- Excellent hotel location right across from Karon beach. Very beautiful grounds. My daughter was very fond of the chickens and the bunnies. Very tame animals. - We had booked the deluxe room with partial ocean view. The room had a nice view of the pool with the beach as the backdrop. In most hotels in the US they would call this an ocean view room and not a partial ocean view. Very large balcony. - The breakfast buffet was excellent with a large variety of thai and non-thai dishes. - The staff was very polite and helpful. - The other restaurants on the property were a bit overpriced but there are very nice choices within 10-min walking distance. Try Ging's restaurant. - Wifi connection was pretty good within the room and throughout the hotel. - We arrived pretty late at night in phuket but the hotel had booked the transportation for us. The only thing that was a bit annoying was that the hotel didn't tell us that that the driver wouldn't wait very long at the airport. Given that this was an international flight, going through customs and immigration can sometimes take a while. I think the hotel should be able to see the status of the flight and budget some extra wait time when they book the transfer for the guest.
"Perfect quiet resort"
Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. The hotel is elegant and set in the most beautiful gardens in which swimming pools are tastefully set. The orchids they grow are beautiful and the whole feel of the place oozes tranquility. Tame rabbits and chickens wander round the garden and the sound of birds makes you feel you are in the countryside. The Hotel is spotlessly clean, friendly staff and has a beautiful Koi Carp pond as its centre piece. Our room was very large with a huge balcony overlooking the pool. The air conditioning in the bedroom was fantastic, a lovely icy blast in seconds of arriving from the scorching heat. Nice restaurants and bars a short walk away when you turn either right or left out of the hotel along the beachfront promenade. So pleased we choose this resort over Patong which is tacky and tasteless. The beach is across a narrow road and is a public beach therefore not as clean as others that the hotels keep clean. There is a lovely security man who stops the traffic so you can cross. The downside to the beach is no sun beds or umbrellas available and for people who need to have shade there is none. Stick to the pool where there is plenty of both with pool service and a swim up bar, perfect.
"Where Thai Tradition Meets the Nature..."
We were very satisfied with our stay in this hotel. We never experienced before a hotel like this one, where you can see the love for nature, rather than utilization of nature. Every part of the resort is completely in harmony with nature. Here are some cons and pros related to this hotel: - Pros: LOCATION - located just on the Karon beach, it is super convenient to go to the beach and back to the hotel's swimming pools; LOCATION - if you like quite place, but still easy accessible to restaurants and shops - this is a perfect one. Close to the hotel you can find super markets and restaurants, all 1-5 min walking. LOCATION again - you can get a great sleep, no noise, only beautiful birds singing. NATURE - the hotel is voted to have the most beautiful garden in Phuket. As well the 5 swimming pools hotel offer is surrounded by beautiful trees. You can really feel that they do not utilize nature to attract tourists, they actually love nature and care about it. SERVICE - you really feel warm with the friendly people that serve you everyday. Their English might not be perfect, but quickly they will find someone who can speak good English and assist you, as well Russian. FOOD - breakfast is just great for my taste, variety of western and Eastern food, as well good choice of bread, fruits and fresh salad. Anyhow the dining hall in the middle of garden is so beautiful that you need to feel good. They also offer other restaurants such as Italian (amazing pizza, must try), Mexican, Thai (such a great view to the sea from this restaurant). CLEANLINESS - the whole hotel is super clean, rooms as well. I really appreciate this. SPECIAL TREATMENT - when we left we got a gift - a Paradise bird flower from their own garden. The little cons are rooms - our room was not like 4 star hotel..but big and clean, lack of this luxury sense. However this cons was not important and did not influence our experience. As well we saw some of the other rooms and we believe they are much better than the one we got. So this cons is not something that should influence you. Just set up your expectation - great location, clean beach, beautiful nature (amazing nature inside the resort), just not 5 stars luxury rooms.
"Garden by the sea"
12/08/14 Eugenia S Moscow, Russia
Hotel is conveniently located just in front of the Karon beach and offers good view to the sea. Staying there was like living in a garden. You wake up to the birds' singing, enjoy walks among many paths with beautiful plants, flowers...and thought provoking sayings all over the place. Pools are great, large and beautifully decorated. Rooms are nice and clean. Breakfast at the hotel was not so good to my mind- no variety and limited choice of food.
"PERFECT SERVICE & FRIENDLY STAFF"
12/08/14 Mikazen95 Paris, France
I stayed one week at the beautiful & amazing THAVORN PALM BEACH RESORT in the end of November : very good surprise. I got a very good feeling for this hotel as the service is perfectly made by a very good & friendly staff. Special mention for the amazing & wonderful "Orchid gardens" .... if you want SERENITY, this is THE PLACE to spend time very early or in the end of afternoon to avoid the hot températures. If I come back to Phuket, it will be there !!!!
"Old world charm"
12/07/14 Kate G Melbourne, Australia
What a gorgeous place. My boyfriend and i stayed here for three nights in early December and just loved it. The minute you enter the property you feel like you have walked into a grand hotel during the days of the Raj - it is an entrance hall like no other. The rooms are pleasant and comfortable with the most stunning outlook over the property. The gardens create a semi micro-climate jungle of rich tropical flowers and plants. Great pools and amenities. Included breakfast is also impressive. We loved the little coffee shop to get our morning caffeine fix and also loved spending an evening perched at the mexican bar with a drink and some tacos, while chatting to the fantastic restaurant/bar manager (i can't remember her name unfortunately). Great location too - we'd simply walk across the road, have a dip in the ocean or stroll down to one of the beach bars. All up - if you are looking for relaxation not partying and like understated elegance give the Thavorn Palm Beach Resort a go. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
"Average at best "
12/03/14 Shilpa M
My husband and I chose this resort as a place to relax flowing our previous city visits. Unfortunately that wasn't going to be entirely the case. We booked what was called the 'superior' room which in its description said was situated on the 'quiet tranquil gardens'. This was not the case at all. In fact these rooms were thee lowest grade therefore.due to this hotels location, the nearest to the road inbetween the hotels land and the sea and a side street full of restaurants. This meant at night it was a struggle to fall asleep whilst hearing the loud music from the taxis and cars on the main road. We did approach the reception staff on our first night about the matter but all they did was smile and say we would have to upgrade and pay a surplus on the already pricey charge. The hotel has many restaurants and pool bars however it is better to pop round the corner for more realistic thailand prices. The prices are pretty steep and whilst we stayed we rarely saw people visiting. The hotel premises is nice and the breakfast is plentyful however whilst trying to relax by the pool it isn't nice to hear the traffic on the main road, food in the hotel is expensive and neither did I appreciate nothing being done regarding our request to move rooms when they didn't make good on their description. For these reasons I wouldn't recommend this hotel to my family or friends and neither will I revisit.
"Amazing Resort Complex With Amazing Gardens..."
12/02/14 jaguarxj6 Melbourne, Australia
My wife and I stayed here for 5 fabulous nights……we thoroughly enjoyed the resort and all that it has to offer. The staff were very welcoming and always pleasant , friendly and above all polite. The gardens are absolutely amazing , Orchid gardens , it is very obvious that many long tiring hours have ben spent manicuring the gardens , the Bonsai's were all fascinating with much history about each one. We would recommend this resort to all families , much to enjoy and extremely peaceful…!!!
