... Cody and I can't put our fingers on it, but even the animals looked depressed. Especially the white tigers. What is this place? I think I might be a little frightened. Then I see 5 elephants lumbering in the distance. "Elephants", I shriek to Cody. He replies, "Oh my gosh, race you to 'em", and he starts to shuffle run. I can't believe he's making fun of me. Then I realize he is serious. Out of my way brother, I saw them first! We walk through the crowd of people so we can see them. ...
... of lobster, crayfish and prawns which were cooked on the BBQ and tasted so good! Deb and Mark wanted an early night seeing we were needing to be up early for our Phi Phi Island trip the next day. Paul and I decided to go to the markets again to do some more shopping. We decided to go fir a foist and leg massage (another one lol!) before heading home about ...
I went Christmas shopping- did all of it for $3000THB ($100AUD). I bartered and think I did ok. Shirts for mum, kat & Jodi. Shirts for Thomas and Tim. Shorts for dad. Dresses for Taylah. And 4 tops for me. I think it's ok. Plus 2 shirts and 4 wallets from earlier. I'm done, now to relax for 4 more nights and enjoy the sun, as Nixx leaves ...
... we had time to sit on the beach in deck chairs and go for a swim. The water is so beautifully blue and warm....always inviting and hard to resist! After lunch we island hopped about five minutes across the water for snorkelling and it was amazing. There were so many beautiful colourful fish to look at and follow. The most disappointing thing was that my underwater camera stopped working on our last tour so we didn't get to take any photos. It was the ...
... somethings she had bought.She looked so miserable afterwards poor thing!
The meal was about £10, we had a few drinks , fresh whole fish and a Thai Red Curry.
One thing I liked about Karon was that no one really hassled us, no tuk tuk drivers driving you crazy, no hawkers dragging you in to buy things, just lovely, smiley people. There are plenty of ATM's, supermarkets, shops, restaurants and a small market.
We did walk to the other end of the town on ...

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.
