"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.

Beautiful hotel, but the standard room had a moldy bathroom and the room was very rundown. The concierge assumes that everyone speaks Russian (I kept getting hotel notices in Russian after telling them multiple times that I speak English only). Staff should also speak English (cab drivers knew the language better than concierge).Genuine Hotels.com 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.

"Great pool/gardens average room"
If your looking to not spend much time in room this hotel could be an option. The bathroom was not pleasant, very very old, shower sprayed everywhere but down. massive pool and gardens, pool bar always seemed closed. good breakfast, bit of a distance (1km) to main shops and the taxi want take you around for under 200b so gets costly if you dont want […] to walk Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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

"Hotel vieux mais très bien positionnné, calme, jardins et piscines magnifiques."
L'hotel en lui-même est un peu vieux. Beaucoup de façades nécessiteraient d'être repeintes. Je pense que des alles de bains plus modernes seraient appréciables. Par contre, les piscines et les jardins sont bien entretenus et magnifiques. Une très belle plage de sable est juste à côté, ce qui est très appréciable. De même, les autres hotels sont relativement […] éloignés, ce qui donne une impression de calme dans la nature tropicale. Le petit-déjeuner est très bien et complet. Le personnel est très agréable. Dans l'ensemble, je suis donc très content, même si mon séjour n'a duré que 48 heures. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
雨季ということもあって大変安価に宿泊することができました。 率直に良い点や悪かった点を記載しますが、あくまでも個人の感性で書くことと、海外滞在が初心者ですのであくまでも日本の環境と比較してしまう点にご留意ください。 良い点 ・雨季で安価に滞在できたこと。 ・朝食も品数が多かったこと。 悪い点 ・時期によるかもしれませんが、ホテルの内外に関わらず蚊が多い。 ・水道が数時間使えなくなった ・シャワーのお湯が出ない ＊水関係はホテルのせいではなく地域のインフラかもしれませんが・・・ ・ルームクリーニングでごみが捨ててもらえなかったり、タオルが変えてもらえていなかった。（５泊のうち１日だけでしたが） ・EVが常に調子が悪い ・これもホテルの問題ではないかもしれませんが、廊下にヤモリ？が多かった。 […] 総評 安価に快適とは言いませんが、快適さを求めない上での最低限の滞在はできました。 ビーチも近く、マッサージ、食事処、コンビニも近隣にあり便利であった。 次回、プーケットに行くことがあったら別のホテルを利用したいと思う。 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

First of all, Karon Beach was just perfect for us, since it had a good stretch of sand, clear waters perfect for swimming, and the beach wasn't as crowded as Patong, but had pretty much everything that you could possibly need. Thavorn Palm Beach Resort was well situated right behind the entrance to the beach, only needing to cross a two-lane road. It was also right beside the Hilton and it wasn't a long walk to the center of Karon, shops, massage parlors, and restaurants. If you don't want to walk it, you can always take their taxis, but it is a bit costly especially for tourists. They charge 100-200 baht one way, and that is only up to the center of Karon. It will cost much more if you want to go to Patong or other nearby beaches. Thavorn had a spectacular view of the sunset too. We were on our honeymoon, and it was sweet of them to make our bed with petals, orchids, swan towels and a Happy Honeymoon sign. With a complimentary vanilla cake too! Their staff at the front desk were friendly and helpful. Rooms were comfy and clean. Our room was situated on the 4th floor, take note, their elevators were out of order at that time, but we didn't mind the short bit of exercise going up and down the stairs. Daily breakfast had a wide variety of choices, with a good selection of fresh fruits too. I would recommend their traditional Thai restaurant. Their tom yang was good! The resort had I think 6 pools, so it's never crowded. What we loved about Thavorn was that compared with the other resorts we've seen, it had a very tropical and native Thai feel. And they had numerous resident rabbits and chickens roaming free in the gardens. Your kids would love it! If I find myself in Phuket again, I would definitely stay there in a heartbeat.

This resort is awesome. Location is excellent, both beach and shops and restaurant are within short walk. Swimming pools...just one word "wow"! Breakfast is great, you can find everything you need - European, Asian. Rooms have nice design and good size, room terrace is big. Staff are nice, kind, polite and welcoming. We felt sincere support every time we asked them for something. Thanks a lot to all the staff. P.S. we would like also to recommend a very nice restaurant near the Karon temple called Family Seafood - the food is just delicios, please try Tom Yam, fried rice with seafood and bbq fish. It's the last one before temple on the left hand side if you go from the beach side, with orange sign and orange tablecloth.

Where do i start....As the other comments from Lesley Bird, pretty much say it all. This is a place I am delight to call my second home. I feel relaxed, safe in the hands of such wonderful people. I have yet to come across something negative and have been going there for a few year, both with family and friend. It is extremely central to a lot of activities, sightseeing, dining,great beaches, and of course shopping. The complex is beautifully refurbished, with great relaxing room colours, staff are wonderful friendly. We have meet fantastic people from all over the world, especially down at the many pools. I have made wonderful Thai friends over the years, and look forward to going back again 2014. Hopefully with a few other joking in the fun.
"Very average hotel"
11/06/13 Elias S
Arrived there on the 28 of October ,stayed for 4 nights,we had no internet anywhere in the hotel ,they blame it on an accident on the street,did not believe it,because all the restaurants and cafes adjacent to the hotel had connection. The foyer leading to the rooms are so depressing,facade of the hotel is dirty and rundown,sewage smell around the pools area.
"2013 - another holiday in paradise"
11/04/13 Catgirl196 Christchurch, New Zealand
once again we had an wonderful holiday at this awesome resort. All the staff are incredible, friendly and helpful, the housemaid was just gorgeous. The rooms have been updated and painted lighter colours. The Resort still supplies a shuttle service to Patong and Phuket town and the driver is courteous and careful which is most important when travelling amongst all the scooters and other vehicles. This time my husband got the flu and the desk staff organised to go to the Doctors, taxi etc , great help and not a problem. The pools were as usual beautiful and the grounds amazing. I don't know what else to say except we will be back again and again hopefully. If you do chose this wonderful resort I am 100% sure you will enjoy it as much as we do.
"The best vacation ever"

This hotel is perfect if you want to spend a great time in Thailand. It's really relaxing and comfortable place with good service and excellent staff. By the way people are very kind and helpful over there. I didn't have any problems during my trip. And now a few words about our room. It was unbelievable. My boyfriend was very pleased with the service and design of Thavern Palm Beach Resort. We are going to come over and over again. Thank you so much for the best holidays ever.

We just spent 2 wonderful weeks at the Thavorn Palm Beach Resort in Thailand, this is a lovely comfortable hotel set in the most beautiful gardens with several large swimming pools and a pool bar. Rooms have been recently renovated in cool attractive colours and have good air con,the new bathrooms are well appointed and there was a lovely large patio to sit on and admire the gardens. Morning breakfast really does have something for everyone. Staff were helpful and a pleasure to deal with. The hotel is situated close to Beaches and shops, we really could not have asked for more. We hope to return to this lovely hotel again.

Do your self a favor, don't book this hotel. Old, not so clean, the staff is not kind. For sure not a 4 star hotel. To get to the beach, u have to go out of the hotel and to cross the road. And one last thing... Be careful from the rats next to the pool !! Tzafrir & Carine
"Pretty first impression."
09/29/13 famwood Perth, Australia
Returned after many years following the improved reviews from guests. The refurbished rooms were very nice. The décor in our room was as shown on the website, a cross between French Provincial and English Country Garden. Might be a bit fussy for some but we enjoyed it. Our room was very clean when we arrived with all amenities included. Serviced on the first day to the same standard but the following days fell away somewhat. One day it seemed that all we got was the bed made. None of the bins were emptied and nothing replaced or cleaned. The next was a hit and miss mix. Not consistent and not expected for the standard that the Resort rates itself, especially when not at full capacity. Public areas at the front of the property are well maintained. Gardens and pools great . Swim-up Pool bar was closed during our stay. The breakfast was good, but the Restaurant area needs to be the next to get attention. Fittings are old and we were put off by the dirty chairs and chipped and stained counter and table tops. Backs and arms of the dining chairs all need a good clean as they are sticky and dirty. We ate one evening meal at Windsong Terrace and were the only sit down customers for the time we were there ,though there did seem to be room service orders going out. Plenty off staff around could have been cleaning ready for the morning breakfast service .Instead, they were setting tables , which given the open air nature of the premises and the wildlife we saw , which is able to crawl all over anything left out at night, may not be best practice. We certainly got ourselves clean cutlery each day. The resort seems to be trying very hard to impress but just misses in too many areas. Refurbished rooms will soon deteriorate if not cleaned. Gardens are good but don't neglect the other areas. We used the stairs to access our room and the visible areas behind the buildings were awfull. Black rubbish bags piled high, broken tile and glass strewn in neglected garden beds, more rats running around in daylight, not surprisingly. (we did see traps). For the 3 days we were there, water was running from under the door of a ground floor room opposite the lift, and the solution was to roll up towels to mop-up/channel it away. Great trip hazard when you got out of the elevator! Overall impression ; that even a good make-up job needs to be backed up by a great soul, and though trying hard, there needs to be more done here.
