"Great location and excellent service"
Spent 4 nights there and did not want to leave. Friendly, helpful staff who went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. A tranquil haven to return to after a day of action on Surin Beach. Hope to return next year.

"Not Children Friendly"
Unfortunately we were mislead about this place. How it can be called a resort is beyond us. It has minimal facilities and is very difficult to navigate with an infant in a stroller. Upon arrival we were told that "there was an arrangement with the hotel next door for access to the kids club so 'noisy kids' would not be heard at the Chava" Hardly family friendly or welcoming. The hotel is located away from the beach which is not accessible for a stroller. SInce we only arrived late afternoon we had to stay for one night out of a planned 4 and spent half of the next day seeking alternative accommodation. Not a relaxing way to start a break in beautiful Phuket.

プーケットは初めてでしたが、すばらしいホテルにあたり、ラッキーでした。部屋は非常に広く、我々の滞在したは最も下のクラスの部屋でしたが、ベッドルーム、シャワー、トイレがそれぞれ二つずつありました。好きなものをオーダーするタイプの朝食も質が高く、数日間の滞在なら、飽きることはありません。 滞在客はほとんど欧米の人で、日本人を含めたアジア人の姿は見かけませんでした。したがって、従業員との英語でのコミュニケーションは必須ですが、リゾート気分を味わうには良いと思います。 観光を考えた時の立地はやや悪いですが、タクシーに乗ればどこでも行けます。それよりも都会の喧騒を離れて静かに過ごせる事の方が我々にはメリットに感じました。

" Lovely holidays with the chava!"

I was staying at the chava for 3 days with my friends and its totally awesome place to enjoy your holidays! The staffs at the chava are very friendly and proactively offer help, so we have no problems during our stays even its my first time to visit surin beach area. Deluxe apartment is VERY huge and tidy. its perfect for families and friends. It was my first trip with high school friends, and absolutely we love the chava! We had a great time at the chava, and surin beach. We never forget about this precious memory with you. Thanks :)

"Goregous Oasis!"
08/29/15 KathLOL Hong Kong, China
What a gorgeous resort. The Chava Resport is an oasis of peace and tranquility. On arrival we were greated by Peter, the affable and very well informed Australian Manager who was more than happy to answer any questions we had about the area, activitites, restaurants etc.. He also makes a mean cafe latte! We stayed in a two bedroom suite on the 2nd floor which was huge and had a fabulous open-plan design, complete with fully equipped kitchen, breakfast bar, dining table, lounge area connecting to a balcony that had another set of table and chairs, two showers, massive bath, ironing board, drying rack, full blockout curtains and very comfy beds. The resort has free wifi throughout. Our room looked onto the enticing swimming pool and the beach is only a few minutes walk from the resort. Breakfast was inclued in our room charge. It was served by the pool and there was a large range of delicious choices, both western and Thai. As we have 3 children, Peter directed us to the best horse-riding, elephant riding and go-karting venues as well as telling us the best way to travel there - by tuk-tuk (which our children loved!). The resort also arranged for us to have a thai massage in our room, and there loads of local massage / spa type services close by. We will certainly visit the Chava Resort again.

"The best keeps getting better"
08/24/15 Francesco A Melbourne, Australia
Experienced the Chava Resort last year and this time around my wife and I were joined by some of her clients and friends .The days were "full on" with Qui Gong Meditation,cross-training and Muay Thai workouts but plenty of relaxing therapeutic massages and "me time" were included. The Chava's breakfast is included in the tariff and is the best way to start the day , fresh everything !! The suites are sensational and spotlessly serviced daily. Peter and Sharon were fantastic and know where and how to find the special "local" treats that make holidays memorable.Nothing is too much trouble for them to research and deliver, we will definitely be back !

"Standout resort destination"
08/21/15 Tim P Greater Melbourne, Australia
A touch of paradise at beautiful Surin Beach. Weather perfect, but such a classy place to stay. We were treated so well; breakfast poolside was great quality and such friendly Thai service, as well as it being included in tariff. Rooms - we were on the 4th floor, 4 sharing, huge 2 bedroom apartment, with washing facilities, though send-out laundry unbelievably cheap. Peter & Sharon Jones were such welcoming hosts, and arranged a great tour around the south of the island & an unforgettable lunch in Patong, where you visit the fish market, choose your own seafood and take it a nearby restaurant, where it is cooked & prepared for you. How can it get any fresher than that? Recommend local massage at such cheap rates, for tired and stiff muscles. Taste restaurant, nearby, also recommended, but several young/fun restaurants, and bars 200m away, on the beach. Shops handy, including an outstanding wine shop, with wines from new/old world at quite good prices. We, too, will be back. Thank you, Chava Resort , for an outstanding get away.

"Relaxing luxury"
08/18/15 Clive S
The Chava is a fantastic self catering location, with a good in house menu at the restaurant/bar. Great rooms, great internet, friendly staff, nothing too much trouble. Apartments very well equipped, good standard and extremely comfortable. Only downside, dining options around the resort are limited. Bang Tao bay is a 25 minute walk away and is a better beach than Surin. I read somewhere, before we travelled that Surin Beach is Millionaires row. Maybe it is up in the mountains but there isn't much going off in the town. Surin Plaza- The mall that sells nothing you want to buy! 7 Eleven & Family Mart - Great for a Pot Noodle & Pringles and not much else.

"BEAUTIFUL apartment in quiet Surin"
08/17/15 rionisis Singapore, Singapore
We had a great time at The Chava during our recent trip up in August. We stayed in the 2bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor which was huge and clean! Great kitchen which is fully equipped. Rooms are huge and clean - beds are super comfy and nicely made everyday. A lovely timbre cot was even provided for my 2year old upon request. Also loved the clean toilets with a huge sunken bathtub and standing rainshowers. Breakfast was a delight! A decent selection to choose from ranging from muesli to western (different style of eggs) and even asian (noodles, rice, porridge) - All freshly prepared on the spot for you. The pool is a perfect spot to relax by with bales and lounge chairs for days u just feel like lazing. The quiet beach of Surin just about a 3min walk away! Truly enjoyed our stay at The Chava. A home away from home and we will definitely be back again!

"Short Girlie Weekend"
08/17/15 Petrina v New York City, New York
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 leaves in it and was in the shade. The main pool was two steps from the front door so we constantly used that. Food was really great. I'm quite fussy and was very happy with the breadth of selection and quality. My only complaint was that the staff serving at the restaurant were completely uninterested and moody. Everything felt like too much trouble. There was even elaborate sighing and eye rolling from one individual at one point which was completely crazy. Perhaps they work too many hours or there is something more fundamental that is wrong. It was simply an anomaly in the experience. Wouldn't stay there for longer than a couple of nights. Really not much around the area for entertainment.

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 our daughters birthday while on holidays and they had surprised her a beautiful and yummy cake. The food at the resort was delicious and for a resort very reasonable and the kids meals were fabulous value. There were also lots of options for local food down the road and on the beach for a bit of a change. The rooms were huge. We only booked a two bedroom apartment for a 8 night stay and it was more than enough for all of us. The rooms are really good and very comfortable for our family. We were lucky enough to have the pool to ourselves most and the kids loved spending the day by the pool. For the relaxing family holiday we were after the location is perfect, across the road from the beach and BangTao bay only a five - ten minute tuktuk ride away. Surin beach in July was a little rough for our little kids but Bang Tao bay was like a pool!! Patong was a 40 minute tuktuk ride away and was a great option for an afternoon out of the sun and great shopping. The kids LOVED the tuktuk rides and on one ride back even saw elephants walking on the side of the road. We loved our holiday at the Chava and cannot recommend it enough.

"Go no further than Chava Resort in Suriname."
08/16/15 Rogie61
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.

"Phuket perfection!"
08/12/15 Deborah D Perth, Australia
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 by peace and greenery. Gorgeous pool, terrific coffee (as only the ex-Melbourne GM Peter Jones would allow) and cocktails, a short walk to a variety of local restaurants without the hustle and hassle of other areas of Phuket - what's not to love? Oh, can't forget the accommodation - stunning apartments, well-equipped, wifi works well, beds blissfully comfortable - can't wait to go back!
