I can understand why weak people can be sucked into the abyss. I was one guy called Matt who decided to come with me to look around, one thing we quickly learnt was how to say “no thank you” which is “mai aou” (if you make a cat noise, you won't be far wrong.) as everybody has something to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Thavorn Beach Village & Spa Patong
We stayed at this fabulous hotel in april 2003 for our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect. We are wanting to go back and were just wondering if anyone who had stayed recently has enjoyed their stay as much as we did!!! I cannot imagine anything being below par at this wonderful hotel! Seems to be mixed reviews? Our experience could not have been better, the food was excellent- although we didn't have breakfast often- we preferred a coffee and coconut biscuit in the pool bar and the fresh fruit kebabs brought to you by the staff early in the morning!!! The standard of food at the pool bar was superb- I particularly remember the 'fish and chips' they had on the menu with a lime and coriander mayo- a fab twist on the well known english version!!
This hotel/ Resort was the most beautiful place i have EVER stayed.
We enjoyed our stay at the Thavorn Beach Village and Spa Feb 27th through March 4th, 2006. There are "nicer" hotels in Phuket but the combination of location to Patong Beach, view, lagoon pool, private beach and price made this a great stay for us. The hotel is located far away enough away from the "maddening crowd" of Patong Beach, but close enough to make the lure of Patong Beach accessible. We stayed in the Ocean View Villa room 5207 and found the room large and pleaseantly appointed. There was no problems with ants during our stay. We enjoyed the lagoon pool and it was cleaned every day. The private beach was nice and there was hardly anyone out on the beach, unlike the crazy crazy crowds on Patong Beach. It was nice NOT to have the "vendors" and hawkers constantly bothering you while you were on the beach. We ate at the hotel restauarunts all five nights and found the food good. Given the pleasant setting (2 nights of dinner served to us at a table on the beach) it didn't worth the hassle to go into Patong Beach. The staff was sincerely friendly and helpful. We were not scheduled to leave the resort until 6pm on Saturday March 4th and reception desk waived the late departure charge. My only criticism is that facilities have some minor repair issues, but they don't detract from the overall condition of the resort. When this resort was built it might have been a premium resort, but now has become a bit outdated compared to today's "modern" resorts. But if you are looking for a a place to relax and enjoy some of the charms of Thai hospitality then this is a great of choice.
The Thavorn was our favorite place in Thailand. The staff was wonderful, fun and helpful. The pool and views are amazing, the pictures don't really capture how nice it is. I would suggest staying in one of the rooms that connect to the pool, or are a balcony above the pool. They have huge bathrooms, huge balconies and a lovely view. The included breakfast could not have been better. The location is perfect because it's a close taxi ride into Patong, but far enough away to feel secluded and not have all the noise.
Stayed at Thavorn Beach Willage and Spa over the weekend and cannot believe how dirty the pool was. There was mould growing on the side of the pool and the bottom of the pool was covered with a layer of dirt. The room was nice but food and drinks at the hotel was expensive and quite ordinary. Quite close to Patong beach so its easy to go out for meals and shopping.
We stayed here for 2 weeks in July. It would have to be one of the best resorts I have stayed in. The room was delightful, the pool huge, and the staff were great - expecially our cable car guy on the night shift. The food was pretty good as well - we ate in about every 2nd night - although I would not recommend room service if you are staying on a hillside room. It takes a while to get up there and the 1 night we had room service the food was cold. It was very quiet when we went and I am not sure if this was because of the Tsunami or it was just the off season - but it was lovely nonetheless.
Just a short tuk tuk ride to town. The resort has buses at certain times of the day that will take you to Patong and bring you back.
Will definitely return there again.
We stayed in Thavorn for 5 nights before going on to Phi Phi island. We absolutly love the Thavorn ideal for a romantic getaway, our room was spotless and with a jacuzzi on the balcony with fantastic views. The pool is a shallow freeform pool which is massive! and very nice!
We found the food to be average and a little expensive compared to thai standards but we ate out most nights as patong beach is only a short tuk tuk ride away!
All staff were fantastic 5*!
We would definatly return in the future!
Well appointed suite, adequate service (not up to normal Thai standards) but oh the food. Terrible. Tried a breakfast and a lunch, equally bad. Great incentive to find good local restaurants.
This is a really fantastic hotel positioned on its own beach in a beautiful location. The Thai style villas up the hillside are a welcome change from the egg box style hotels littered across the rest of Phuket. You can walk to your room up the steep hill or get the furnicular. Given the heat we stuck to the furnicular!
