... stunning modern Thai temples I have seen. After we visted the Big Buddha, sitting on top of a 400m hill, it is 45m high and 25m wide. The Buddha's base was covered with scaffolding, but was still impressive upclose and provided great views over Phuket. My Thai friend Phet encouraged me to get a blessing from the monk, a new experience for me. He put a bracelet on my right ...
Today we were up early as we needed to meet Zeb in Patong at 9am, Zeb was off on a day tour at 11am and we needed to try and find belts for the boys to wear to the wedding tomorrow. Omg it's tomorrow!!! We were at the resort early and caught up with Gan and Zeb's Dad whilst waiting for Zeb... Zeb went out partying until 4am so when he finally appeared he was looking very average. Lol We went on a hunt for coffee but by the time we got there Zeb wasn't feeling like coffee was the best ...
Rehab - Once I learnt quarantine I was a bit slow making sure I was doing everything right, but I soon got it, so then rehab was then much easier to learn. My first two days at rehab (which is all based on an exhaustingly steep hill) had a few issues to overcome. We have a delivery of fruit and veg that needs dividing up between all of the animals every other day. When it has been delivered it sits in a cage in our prep shacks ready to be used. We arrived ...
So, we did the tourist thing today and got a driver to take us around Phuket. Normal city that ends with a nice beach where we are staying right around the corner. We went to the elephant, monkey and snake place but decided feeding the elephant was enough and shot over for a private snake show. Safety first does not usally apply when it comes to foreign countries. I found myself wondering if my paperwork was in order should this giant snake decide ...
Finally, we had a day that was absolutely gorgeous for the entire day. We spent a good 4 hours on a beautiful island that wasn't inhabited by more than us, a few other tourists, and the few people who ran the small shops along the beach. They had quite a few different activities for us to do. Some of us guys began with a bike ride a little ways into the island. We ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Impiana Resort Patong Phuket
As two early thirthy independant travs.1M/1F we loved it. I have worked most of my career in 5 star australian resorts and knowing what they have to work with i was smiling all the way from the cool towels and rose water at check in, to the check out we thought was a day later!
My husband, myself and two friends have just arrived home from two weeks staying at the Impiana Phuket Cabana. From the minute we arrived the staff could not do enough to please us. As it was early morning, our rooms were not vacant so they gave us another room to use in the meantime. The weekly complimentary cocktail party was a great way to meet other guests. The pool area is great. Although not a large pool it is more than adequet as the beach is right there as well. We had lots of fun during the day lounging at the pool, doing the occasional shopping from the beach hawkers, and chatting to fellow guests. This would be the holiday remembered by the number of different people we met while swimming at the pool. The position of the hotel would have to be the best in Patong Beach. The beach restaurants next door were fabulous and very reasonable and the shopping just over the road. I will recommend this hotel to everyone I know who is going to be visiting Phuket.
Do you want to be spoilt?????
My husband and I stayed at the Impiana for two weeks in August and enjoyed ourselves immensely.
The staff were friendly yet very efficient, the rooms large, very comfortable and always clean.
The food in the hotel very good, beautifully displayed and reasonably priced.
The massages in the hotel were so much enjoyed -as were the facials.
Situated on the beach in Patong it was like an oasis, yet outside in close proximity to shops and entertainment.
This was our first time in Phuket but we will be returning to the Impiana very soon
Wouldn't change a thing
I stayed at the Impiana for 5 days, and could not fault a single thing. The rooms being something in a league of their own were incredible, with the biggest double bed i've seen and a traditional feel to it. It was the only hotel on the beach front so you didn't have to cross the busy road to get to the beach which was great, and the staff were friendly and reliable. Only a small hitch with check in (but we were to blame for this as check in wasn't strictly until 2pm anyway), apart from that we had a very relaxing stay and were very sad to leave. Great food, great people and a great beach! Just be aware of mozzies which were there when we were there, although probably not all seasons!
We stayed in May 2006 for a 2 nights and was nowhere near long enough. We were a little nervous prior to arrival as we struggled to find any up to date information (post tsunami) on it. We understand it had been totally rebuilt - and it was fantastic!
We'll be back!!
We have stayed at quality hotels throughout the world and this one would rate amongst the best. During our stay we checked out a number of other hotels. Some were very nice, but none could beat the Cabana for location. A few paces from our room to the beach.
The staff were nothing short of magnificent. Nothing was too much for them. Always a friendly smile. Breakfasts were excellent, relaxed overlooking the beach, eating tropical fruit.
This was our first trip to Phuket. We were a bit uncertain about where to stay. Our stay at the Cabana confirmed we couldn't have picked a better hotel. Our kids had a ball too!
Beware if you are staying there
For those who are looking at staying here, my advice is not to.
Mu husband brought me there for Valentine's Day. After eating their blueberry pancake, apple strudel & bread rolls, I got sick.
I had fever (38.8 degrees celsius), vomitting, lose of appetite & had severe dirrahoea for 3 days, I went to the toilet no less than 80 times in 3 days. I have never been so sick before.
The resort manager said he checked the food & there was nothing wrong with it. Basically, he did not think his resort has anything to do with it and thinks my sickness was from somewhere else. However, I only got sick after I woke up the next morning with body ache. BEWARE!
We stayed at the Impiana Cabana for 4 nights and it was no way long enough.
Great place to stay
I traveled to thailand in September 2004 with a group of 11 of us, with quite mixture in ages. The Cabana was a great place to stay it was not high rise building, they were all small bugelows inter nexting parths. Right on the beach, handy to the small resturants right on the beach
The Sabai beach resturant was our faviout because it was very cheap and the food was very good. The resort was also very close to the shopping being wright at our front door. There is pleanty of tour you can go on. The weather was very good for that time of the year, I think we only had one wet day in our ten days stay. The staff at the resort were out standing always with a smile on there face. this one place and country I will be returning as soon as I can.
