Off the beaten track from the noise & bustle that Phuket has become, but within a 10 minute walk of a major street (friendly staff will often give you a lift). A good breakfast buffet, as well as the lunch/dinner menu. Two pools attract two types of people; front pool facing bay for the more gregarious, and the rear pool for peaceful lounging. It is […] a classic...in design and in attitude. Check it out! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Resort right on the water close to pier."
Best concierge ever! Steve will go above and beyond for you. Fabulous infinity pools simply gorgeous and peaceful setting! Love the mermaid!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel for our stop-over"
We flew in late and needed a place to stay before we got to the phi phi island. I wish we would have stood here longer instead of staying in phi phi. They upgraded us at no extra charge because they overbooked the type of room we requested. The room nice and clean and the bed were comfortable and firm. The location is at the end of a dirt road and really […] makes you feel like you're on a nice vacation. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful grounds and pool and great restaurant!"
We loved the ambiance of this hotel. The staff was very helpful and the onsite restaurant has a beautiful view of the marina and has great food for a reasonable price. The grounds have beautiful artwork and sculptures.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice, quiet hotel with bungalows around the two pools and regular, large, comfortable, clean rooms for the those on a smaller budget. Very friendly and helpful staff, especially mgr. Steve who will take the time to explain the area and what it offers. Restaurant is a bit more expensive then on the streets, but good food and also has a bar with mixed […] drinks and beers. Breakfast buffet has omelettes, toast, coffee, tea, juice, milk, fresh fruit, and some local fare as well. Rooms have big comfortable beds and good internet, and regular and rain style shower heads. From pool you have direct access to own beach, but don't expect white sand type beach, This beach looks out on a bay where many private boats are anchored. This however, does not spoil sitting and relaxing on lounges on hotel deck, looking out at a large picturesque island in the bay. If you're looking for action, go to Patong. If you want to truly relax, this a good spot for that. Restaurants, bike rentals, and bars are all within a ten minute walk from the entrance at main road to which hotel staff will give you a free lift any time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A perfect stay"
This resort is awesome (given its affordable price). I like its design, cleaniness, the beautiful pools and the friendly staffs. Although this hotel is tar away from all the happening places, this does not bother me at all - as my family had spent a few days in Patong and Phi Phi before coming to take a rest in this resort, we really enjoyed its tranquil […] environment. It is true that this resort does not have a typical Phuket beach - it is a muddy beach. However, the infinity pool kind of compensates for that. Also, the beach view is fantastic, especially the sun rise. I will certainly consider staying there again. Nevertheless, the hotel management should seriously work on its wifi system - the wifi signals in many guest rooms are very weak. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel, once you get past the goat track in is quite nice though a little outdated. The villas on the right of the hotel far nicer than the left. Water pressure was terrible but both pools lovely and in a quiet location so you need transportation of your own. Steve the day manager was lovelyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great view, crear pool and excellent value"
I stayed 5 days and had a lovely experience. Great room, nice staff, especially Steve who gave us the best tips to enjoy and was always happy to chat.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pleasant hotel that more than suited our needs."
We picked Ao Chalong as it was convenient to family living in Chalong. Arrival was shortly after 10pm on Saturday night and restaurant/bar was closed! Reception staff advised mini bar in room (never use them on principle) or go to 7/11 for refreshments.Family member duly obliged on moped knowing the area so crisis averted! We were in Pool View Villa […] which was always spotless. The 'bed' was a very large, comfortable mattress on the floor of a raised platform - this may not be the easiest for some people to get in and out of - a proper bed would be much more preferable. The layout of the rest of the living space was very unusual - a large old fashioned TV facing away from the bedroom and unnecessary high table and bar stools but no comfortable seating other than a short hard bed type thing. Rarely used it so wasted on us! The outside terrace was very shaded - by overgrown plants and a corrigated plastic type extension cover that needed a really good cleaning or replacing. Breakfast was included in our package I would definitely not have paid 200 baht (or much, much less) for it otherwise. It was an buffet breakfast of sorts - mainly suited to the many bus groups that visited regularly - low quality, repetitive and unimaginative. As we generally only take coffee and juice first thing we were happy to forgo this. We did however actually enjoy staying here, gorgeous views from the restaurant/bar and the infinity pool over Chalong bay - just don't look to closely at the beach!

"Paradise away from the bustling noise."
The hotel is located in the Chalong area. If you are looking to get away from it all this is the place. 2 swimming pools gives you choice to enjoy some personal time. Though the hotel has no elevator for those who stay on the 4th floor. once you've entered the room the views make the walk up worth it. Many people might tell you there is nothing out […] there, i beg to differ as there are quite a few restaurants located within 5 minutes . The hotel's restaurant is highly recommended for lunch or dinner. Enjoy Aochalong ! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A hidden gem"
Had a fantastic stay here. Staff are lovely and Steve the guest liaison was very helpful with local information. Chalong itself is relatively unspoiled, much nicer than the larger resorts such as Kata and Karon. The hotel is in a fantastic position overlooking the sea and while you can't swim on the beach the sea pool is lovely and very clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice facility, pool and staff"
Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Hotel in a quiet but remote area, if don't have a car, recommend renting a motorbike to get around. Breakfast included, variety of food available. Very nice inground pool overlooking the sea. Staff is friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel if you want away from the crowds."
Fantastic stay though would recommend upgrade to sea view villa if you can, we had booked pool view villa but dark and did not want to stay after first night. Changed to sea view villa what a difference, fantastic views from villa, perfect location to enjoy this charming hotel. All staff friendly and very helpful, though Steve customer services manager […] deserves a special mention as very helpful with local knowledge to help you get the best of the Chalong area and getting around Phuket. nitre a bike and your stay becomes perfect.

"Good hotel for budget-conscious"
The hotel is a great price for what you get. Breakfast is good and is served 6.30am to 10.30am with a mix of Thai and English breakfast with fresh fruit and salad in the buffet. We stayed in a standard pool-view twin room with air con and ensuite. All clean and tidy. Towels provided and changed everyday. The hotel pool is lovely, surrounded by trees, […] and there is a second pool which looks out to sea near the restaurant. The restaurant food is good, although a little 'westernised' for our tastes - we preferred to go out onto the restaurants on the main road to experience proper Thai food. The hotel itself backs onto the beach, but is down a long and dusty road so it is often necessary to get taxis because of the heat of walking. However, if you're feeling hardy the walk is approximately 10 minutes to the main road where there are plenty of shops. If sailing is your thing it is only a few minutes walk to the Ao Chalong Yacht club. The beach itself isn't the nicest, so it was great to have the use of the pool for swimming instead. The hotel staff were generally good. The hotel Operations Manager, Steve, is native-Brit and is excellent - knowledgeable and friendly. Many of the Thai staff are good, although some were slightly unhelpful on the last day when we realised that we had lost our printed tickets as they couldn't print them out for us. On the whole, though, we did feel looked after and could rely on staff to get us taxis and book tours for us. Taxis are expensive! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Decent hotel, can be better"
Clean but small. Away from all the happening places.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was very nice and right on the water. Breakfast not as good as I thought it should be. Swiming pools were great. Rooms good, but would book a villa if we ever go back to Phukett. Staff very freindly and helpfull. If you want to go clubing this hotel is a bit to far away from town. Overall a very relaxing and enjoyable stay.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Urlaub abseits des Massentourismus"
Wir hatten ein Standardzimmer. War etwas klein, aber dafür mit Balkon. Ruhig. Reichhaltiges Frühstücksbuffet mit Abwechslung. Zwei schöne swimming pools. Kleiner Strand, aber nicht zum Baden geeignet, da Wasser nicht sauber. Gutes Restaurant mit BBQ. Haben sich viel Mühe beim Sylvester-Gala-Dinner gegeben. Sehr freundliches Personal. Besonders Steve […] aus England hat uns sehr gute Tips gegeben. Der Live-Gesang am Abend war gewöhnungsbedürftig, da die Sangeskünste noch ausbaufähig sind ("...sie trifft keinen Ton"). Man sollte Motorroller oder Auto mieten um auf der Insel herumzukommen. Wir hatten einen fast neuen Honda-Motoroller bei einem Laden am Kreisverkehr für ca. 240 Baht/ Tag gemietet, war super. Am Besten normales Taxi buchen zum Flughafen, ist billiger als der Hotelservice, wenn man nur zu zweit ist. Wir würden wieder dort buchen. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Trevligt hotell men avsides"
Hotellet informerade inte om att det skulle vara bröllop och hade stängt frukost matsalen. Informerade inte heller om att dom avsåg att stänga poolen för underhåll i ca 1 vecka.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hôtel ayant plus de points négatifs que positifs. Le descriptif de l'hôtel sur le site ne correspond pas ( y compris les photos qui sont trompeuses vu les angles pris) à la réalité. Le lieu : cet hôtel ses trouve au milieu de nul part au bout d'une route défoncée. Nous avions réserve une villa sur la plage comme le descriptif l'annonçait, mais il s'agit […] en fait d'une villa avec petite vu sur la plage. Cet un hôtel de passage ou de nombreux car de Chinois viennent y passer un nuit ou deux, et malheureusement. Pour les autres vacanciers, ces personnes ne se soucient aucunement de votre bien être ( hurlements à la piscine au centre des villas des 7h00 du matin, crachats partout). La plage : inutile de penser vous y baigner, la plage est toujours très sale et l'eau hyper boueuse ou plutôt vaseuse sur 30 cm de profondeur. Les piscines : propres mais hyper chlorées Le petit déjeuner : très très succinct, la première fois ou l'on tombe sur une prestation avec aussi peu de choix. Le restaurant : les portions sont congrues contrairement aux prix. Je pense que c'est la dernière fois que je réserve via expédia.fr, étant totalement insatisfait de la prestation proposée, et ce vu le nombre de voyage déjà effectués via d'autres sites Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Mysigt hotell med otroligt vänlig personal. Det ligger beläget vid en strand, dock så kan man inte bada på den här sidan av phuket, men det kompenseras med två stora pooler istället. Hotellrummet var stort, fräscht och hade AC. Hotellet är även ett spa så passa på att unna dig en massage eller två. Det ligger lite avsides, fast å andra sidan är är phuket […] lätt att ta sig runt, att hyra moped eller att ta taxi kostar inte speciellt mycket. Jag kan varmt rekommendera det här hotellet om du vill komma någonstans för lite avkoppling. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hôtel chaleureux et accueillant."
Nous avons passés 15 nuits dans cette hôtel pour notre voyage de Noces et ce fût 15 nuits très agréables. L'hôtel est très charmant, avec quelques dégradations mais pas trop méchantes. Il y'a 2 magnifiques piscines dont une face à la mer avec une vue magnifiques sur les îles face à Chalong Bay.Nous avons fait le choix de cet hôtel grâce aux photos proposés […] dans le site expédia mais les photos laisse un ptit goût amer car nôtre chambre était très petite, la vue n'était pas côté jardin mais côté (vue sur le restaurant, au dessus de la cuisine et en face du parking) donc pas très agréable à cause du bruit et des odeurs. Mais franchement, l'hôtel nous servait juste pour dormir alors ça nous a pas gâché du tout notre voyage. En ce qui concerne le personnel, ils sont géniaux, souriant et prêt à vous faire passer d'excellents moments. En conclusion, je recommande cet hôtel mais à éviter les chambres qui sont devant le restaurant pour les personnes désirant profiter de l'hôtel au maximun. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

バスに乗り（一人３０B)行こうとするなら、ちょっと大変です。このホテル近くのロータリーをプーケッとタウン方面へ１５０メーターほど行き（左側）洗濯屋さんの前あたりで下車し、道の反対側に渡ると小さな道があります。ホテルの名前も小さなボードに書いているので、見落とさないように。そこからでこぼこ田舎道を行きます。私はトゥクトゥクに１５０B払いロータリーからの少しの距離を利用しました。小さな道に入り結構長いので大荷物の人は車を利用するのが良いでしょう。 部屋は狭く少しかび臭かったです。バスルームもちゃちで、シャワーの水も勢いがありませんでした。良いところは、ボート乗り場が海辺を歩いて数分のところにあるので、直接日帰り旅行の予約が出来ます。車移動の必要がない分値段交渉もできるはずです。たとえば、ピピ島１ […] １００Bなど、他の島もです。ランチのついてないコースだと６００Bなどです。このボート乗り場のあたりにある原付バイクレンタルは１日１５０Bと他の地域と比べると１００～２００B安いです。プーケットタウンへ行くなり、タイで一番美しいと言われる岬へ行ったりするのによいです。水族館はあまり行く勝ちないかもです。見ごたえがありませんでした。ZOOには行ってください。 Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good value hotel"
04/20/15 EnglishGav Pattaya, Thailand
Stayed here for our last night in Phuket, mostly out of convenience as we returned from a boat trip the day before we flew. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The rooms were very large with a good bathroom. The pools were good and clean. Aircon worked well. We were on a high floor and with no lift this was a bit of a struggle with heavy cases but the staff did help us with bags. Location of the hotel is not great apart from if you need to be near the yacht club. There isn't really much else in the area, so we ended up getting a taxi to Karon where there was an abundance of good restaurants. The beach at Karon looked really nice too but we didn't have any daylight hours to really see. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would stay again!

I visit Ao Chalong Resort whenever I visit Phuket. I have stayed several times at the resort and enjoyed it very much. The staff are very helpful and cheerfull and fun. The accommodation is very clean and pleasant. The two pools are lovely one has a sea view. They serve excellent food which is always freshly prepared. I would recommend Ao Chalong always.
"Mixed feelings. I'd avoid next time..."
03/23/15 AgileWolf London, United Kingdom
Poor transport connections, tacky decor (everywhere), not as idyllic as it looks in the pictures. Very basic breakfast, basic rooms with bed on the floor. Especially in Thailand, I wouldn't put a bed on the floor, where little bugs can crawl and hide under your pillow. Staff friendly and helpful. Air conditioning switches off when you leave the room, you can't programme it to switch on at specific time, e.g. on your return. Free Wifi never worked in the 5 days we stayed there. Be prepared to buy some mosquito repellent...

Stayed here in December and it is a great hotel, rooms are great, beds comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful, they helped arrange a wonderful diving trip. There are 2 pools, one of them has a great view of the sea.
"Lovely relaxing resort"
01/29/15 FayeW London, England
I stayed here before and after a 6 day liveaboard on the MV Giamani which departs from nearby Chalong pier. It was a great pit stop to relax and enjoy the harbour views and spa. Rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable with a safe in the room free of charge for valuables. The reception staff were incredibly helpful and organised a driver for me to take me to the sights I wanted (I was short on time, so preferred this option to an organised group tour). They were also able to arrange a later check out at the start for free and a late check out on my final day (9pm) for a very reasonable fee. I also had a massage in the spa which was great. I preferred the pool overlooking the harbour as it is close to the restaurant and has nice views, but the garden pool is very tranquil and relaxing. Food and cocktails in the restaurant were very tasty. You can venture out further to restaurants (about a 20 min walk) and there is also a pharmacy and a couple of shops nearby. This is a great place if you just want to get away from it all for a couple of days and have some peace and quiet. It's also close to the pier for pick ups to join the dive boats that depart from there. The busier resorts / areas are not far away in a taxi for those that are looking for a little more nightlife.

We found BLOOD in the sheets!!!!! That was very nasty, to start with that. Check in was supposed to be at 2pm but for problems we had to do it almost at night. The hotel says "We accept American Express" and I was counting on that for my expenses and they DO NOT accept it which means I had to use money for fun in my stay there. THE HOTEL takes a LOT of advantage of you!!! Because it is super far, they tell you that the only service for transportation is theirs and they charge ridiculous amounts! WOULD NOT recommend!!!! Terrible!!!!!!!!!!! We spent all of our money for the trip in transportation.

This little find was a welcome surprise. The staff are friendly and the rooms very spacious. Sitting by the pool near the sea front was a pleasure. I would have used the quieter pool if they had a mini bar or waiter service. The only real drawback was the lack of safe in the room. All other hotels had one, even ones that weren't as good!
