Do I have to pay extra for early check in, as we will be arriving phuket airport 7.45am.
Will take min 45mins to reach the resort and you complete VISA & Language formalities. As per my understanding by the time we will reach resort it would be 11am for sure. Early check is always possible but based on availability.
Can’t book in till around 2 pm but as we arrived at 9am we booked the room from the night before.
They may do some sort of deal for you as they were very very helpful
We were not offered early check in. We arrived at 8am . They had somewhere to leave your luggage. We went for a walk and we're in our rooms by 10 am. They are very helpful.
Enjoy your stay
After arriving at Phuket Airport, it will take you another 1 hour to reach hotel. Regarding early check in, It depends on the availability of room because now a days most of the hotels have adopted a simple excuse that all the rooms are booked and the guest has just checked out of one of the room so it will take them another 1-2 hrs to prepare for you. If you are lucky enough, you might get an early check in But they wont charge you anything extra for that.
If you book rooms before arriving phuket.
1.Depend on them, if they have empty clean rooms they will allow you to check in before 2pm.
I have never paid for early check in. However your room may not be ready at that time. You will be able to store luggage, use pool etc and wait. Go into patong and relax over breakfast. My advice is to contact Fon at guest services at hotel and ask them
