"Exceeded expectations"
This hotel was amazing because it was uniquely Thai. One can spend a long time just walking and enjoying the immense gardens. Or... even more unique are the tame animals that come out twice a day to interact with the guests. The beach is much closer to the hotel than I guessed from the photos, just have to cross a street that's not too busy. This hotel is worth whatever you have to pay for it.

"3 nights Thavorn palm beach"
A few issues during the stay , overall service is average , breakfast is mainly catered towards Chinese customers , rooms are dated . The main reason for staying is the proximity to the Beach which is quiet and nice as well as proximity to shops and restaurants.

"Great Fun For Kids"
I had a good time in Phuket with my family but I don't find anything outstanding about the hotel. For me it was just ok but my kids had wonderful times in the pools since there are numbers of pools to choose. I had connecting family rooms but one of the air-cond blower does not able to control, a bit noisy. I feel a bit strange when ironing facility was not provided even outside the hotel room. Hotel policy not providing this facility according to the staff.

"Vacation in Phuket"
The hotel had good and bad. The grounds were beautiful with the gardens, fountains, rabbits, and statues. The location was also great next to many restaurants and shops (but still quiet) and across the street from a nice beach (public beach, the hotel does not have its own). The rooms were nice but the bathrooms were quite dated and in desparate need of renovation. The pools were nice although they closed one during our stay which was annoying. Skip the restaurants as the Italian one was awful (worse pasta i ever tasted) but there are many choices outside the hotel. The fitness center was terrible, old, limited equipment, and dangerous to use. The people were nice but everyone is nice in Thailand. No irons or adapters which was surprising and unexpected at a large hotel. The breakfast buffet was pretty bad with limited selections and half of it was bad Russian food. Overall, I'd recommend the hotel (I loved the landscaping) but wouldn't go back.

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.

"fantastic location"
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.

"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.

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.

"Bel hôtel confortable, calme et plein de charme"
Nous avons séjourné deux semaines , en couple, début décembre au Thavorn Palm Beach. Etant donné les critiques contradictoires que nous avions lues sur internet, nous étions un peu inquiets en arrivant et ce fut, immédiatement, un grand plaisir que la découverte de cet établissement L'hôtel fait face à la grande plage de Karon accessible par les allées qui serpentent à travers un grand jardin tropical et les piscines. Notre chambre située au 4ème étage donnait sur une terrasse fleurie de bougainvillliers d'où nous admirions le jardin et la mer. La chambre, très spacieuse était tout à fait conforme aux photos du site, la literie et les sanitaires impeccables. La chambre était faite les jours, avec bouteilles d'eau, petites décos sur le lit ..par un personnel gracieux qui s'adapte aimablement à vos horaires. La clientèle est cosmopolite, plutôt familiale et l'ambiance générale est souriante et décontractée. Le petit déjeuner est copieux et varié, servi sur une vaste terrasse couverte. Nous n'avons jamais eu d'attente.

私的にはこちらのホテルはおススメできません。ホテル到着しチェックイン時に、ホテルでの食事を勧められ、1人32000円のコースを勧められました。大晦日だった事もあってか、今日はこの辺の飲食店数も少なく、全て予約しないと入れないと言われ仕方なく予約してしまいました。飲み物も一杯1200円程度ですごく高かったです。32000円の割には、おいしくないビュッフェで散々でした。 プール設備は良く、カロンビーチも綺麗でしたので残念でした。また、宿泊した部屋が体臭臭く(おそらく前日にインドのお客様が宿泊されたのでしょうか?)おやじ臭が半端なく、窓全開でしばらく過ごさざるおえませんでした。

Отдыхали в отеле в сентябре 2014 года. Рекомендую на все 100%. Отличное обслуживание, весь персонал приветлив и доброжелателен. Менеджер Адель всегда придет на помощь, поможет сориентироваться, посоветует. Никакого обамана, дополнительных плат... Случайно оставили полотенце у бассейна, вспомнила про него через 2 дня, полотенце вернули, принесли в номер. Номера убирались ежедневно! Насекомых и других живностей в номерах не видели ни разу. Только в коридорах по стенкам бегают милые ящерки. Завтраки отличные от начала времени его открытия до конца , все нужное есть, чтобы не наскучило за 15 дней. Территория очень ухоженная и чистая, то же и о бассейнах могу сказать! Пляж расположен сразу через дорогу. В низкий сезон для купания в море нужно немного прогуляться по берегу или дороге вдоль побережья. Несмотря на волны мы купались. Отличный отель ! Приедем в марте, не смотря на падение рубля)

Haven er et kapitel for selv og skal opleves. God plads ved de mange pools og det var altid til at få liggestole. Priserne på restauranter og barer noget overrated fx koster en shake 145 bath hvor man lige nede i gaden betaler 120 bath for 2. Dejlig strand lige over gaden som er meget befærdet ..

08/19/15 Bakhar S Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Amazing place for people who love peace and nature. My kids enjoyed playing with the turtles, birds and enjoyed the pools. The rooms were so big , comfy and very clean. The staff were very accommodating and caring. The front desk staff named Tell was so perfect in his job to welcome the guests and gave very good first impression of the facilities. The place may look little interior from the front but from the back side it's lively with beach, small restaurants, shops and easy to catch transportation by tuk-tuk or taxi. The big let down however is the breakfast that spoils the mood at the start of day. It's tasteless, cold soups , omelette and toasts, difficulty with non - English speaking staff, and poor quality pastries. The empty restaurants in the hotel prove the point that they badly to fix the food in the hotel. Also the pathway around the pools at the back side of the hotel is poorly lit. My kids were afraid that they may accidentally stamp the insects and worms.

"Nothing to write home about"
08/10/15 Stephen S Townsville, Australia
When we arrived at the resort we were amazed at the size and were treated by friendly staff who had a basic lvl of English understanding.once we were allocated our room we nearly need a tuk tuk to get to it from the reception area. The bed was as hard as concrete and would not suggest anyone with lower back problems consider this hotel. We asked for some extra coverings to assist and was sent a mattress cover. The main light switch was hidden behind a light shade hard pressed against the switch and we need assistance from the staff to locate. The electric jug was broken and both the room umbrellas had been damaged. All were replaced on request. The pool closes at 7pm which is not great when it is 30c. The pool bar had a happy hour where a two for one was offered but still not value for money as other places on the strip were half the cost. The Mexican eating area had been closed down and the authentic Thai eating area was in my opinion at least double the price of other local eating areas. During the night you can hear the large AC units running and is made worse when it rains as the belts start to squeak. The breakfast was included in our accomodation price and had good choices but most of the hot food was only warm at best. Overall this resort could have everything going for it with a a little bit of maintenance required in majority of areas. The lighting was poor in some areas and the superior rooms were average at best.the gardens were excellent and well maintained and the resort is only close to a few local shops with the majority of shops a 200 baht taxi ride or a 15 minute walk.

"Just an average hotel"

After using booking.com, we paid the cash to stay at the thovorn hotel in Karon, Phuket. The pool area is excellent. Pool bar, pizza bar (using clay oven and fresh dough) and reasonable prices. The staff appear to try to hard but make a shamble of things. We arrived to a lengthy checkin. Once checked in, we were kindly escorted 3 miles to the other side of the world before we got to our room. We had a feeling of being very isolated from the rest of the hotel and its other guests. Breakfast is very much the usual. Noodles, rice, last nights takeaway...but there is a selection of toast and jams available with tea and coffee. Avoid taking any laundry to front desk as I was asked very kindly to empty this so the poor girl who had been called over could count the price of knickers, shirts and my boxer shorts for the cost of this service. I refused to empty the bag. Neither of us are picky travellers and have stayed in much better places for the price of this hotel. It is looking very well run down so avoid thinking you will arrive in a room like those advertised on booking.com. The hotel is situated slightly away from most of the shops and bars. Thavorn Palm Beach is not a place either of us would stay in again.

Have just returned home after staying 7 days at the Thavorn Palm Beach Resort, we had a good time there the room we had was a deluxe pool view room on the top floor so we also had part view of the ocean. The room has every thing in it that you would need, the king size bed was comfortable, room was very clean also had table & chairs out on the balcony. The breakfast choice was very good, pools very clean & the gardens are lovely with lots of different water feature's, rabbits, chooks running around. The pool with the swim up bar is good & there is a lovely young lady that makes the drinks for you, we found her to be great as she always was smiling & you could have a joke with her, she has only been working there for a few months.

"Uniquely Thai with some great surprises!"

Wow. I'm not all that into gardens in general, but this place is surrounded by a botanical paradise! They could charge admission just to see the large grounds and the wide variety of gardens. Even more interesting and unique was the fact that they brought out tame animals to interact with. Some tortoises, rabbits, parrots, chickens, doves, etc. It was like a very cool private petting zoo. I stay in a lot of nice hotels and resorts in Thailand and a lot of other places, but these extra things are unique and keep the good memories from fading. There are the typical Thai maintenance touch-ups here and there that need to be attended to, but this place is clean and functional and uniquely Thai. The bed was a little too firm for western tastes but still easy to sleep on. The breakfast buffet had something for everyone. Another thing that really stood out as high-class to me was the fact that all the venues and services were fully staffed even though I was there during a slow season. Keeping everything available even during the off-season is really classy and I appreciated it very much. These people work hard to earn your business, I recommend treating yourself and staying here.

"Lovely place"

An amazing place located through the Kamala nature and just few steps from the beach. They also have a private pier. Excellent services and a cable car to reach the suites. Managers are well trained and the place is absolutely one of the best I've ever seen

"This place has everything you can wish for"

The first thing we loved about this place was the beautiful garden and so many pools. All the pools were so nice and clean and each day we chose to lay by a new pool , but our favorite was the one with the poolbar (see picture below:D) The orkidé garden is gorgeous. It felt lovely just lovely walking around the hotel area with its amazing invironment. We hade a great poolview from our room, a Deluxe room which was perfect for us as a couple. The breakfast was great with different food to choose from, and when we slept late we got us delicious late breakfast at the hotels Coffeshop with a view of the perfect Karon beach which is just on the other side of the street. One of the best beachen we saw. We want to Thank the lovely staff at Thavorn Palm for or all the warmth and help during our stay. The Mexian food is great but our favorite restaurant in the hotel and actually the best and most cosy dinner we had during our 2 weeks stay in Thailand is at the Old Siam Authentic restaurant with its traditional Thai cuisine with a seaview, we felt royal sitting on the floor (with floorchairs) This is a must for everyone going there. Wish I could take a plane now and just have a dinner there tonight haha :D I will definitly come back here but hopefully bring my friends with me next time, I already miss the people and the animals there. This place was a perfect small Thailand for us. Close to everything from shops, partylife and trips, Again Thank you for a lovely stay that we wont forget.
