Absolute Chandara Resort & Spa
Ranked #85 of 97 Hotels in Thalang District
Reviewed 28 August 2006

We recently stayed in Chandara Resort. We were impressed with the villa setting and the pool.
But we were disappointed with the service.Here , we are paying an international pricing but we are getting local service. "Please Clean the Room' Sign was placed outside the villa since morning but when we came back from town in the evening..the room was not cleaned at all. And despite the fact that it was 30 per cent full capacity.
Loud air- con hissing sound could be heard at night in the master bed room and we did not have a good sleep throughout our entire stay.
Food choice is limited in the hotel.There arae only 2 restaurants and 1 of them is only opened and made available for dinner.
Should we come back to Phuket again, we would not choose to stay in this resort again.

We stayed at Chandara in Jan 2006. The staff were very friendly and polite (they put a table on the beach for us so we could eat our dinner on the beach on our last night). We had a 1 bedroom pool villa and were amazed at how nice and clean is was. Also it was a really big room, with the added advantage (particularly on honeymoon!) that the terrace and private pool were not overlooked. It was pretty quiet- on one day we were the only guests in the hotel- but because the grounds are broken up into lots of seperate areas it wasn't spooky. The views from the terrace are amazing. In the hotel there are flower arrangements everywhere.
It is quite far away from anywhere else- we stayed 6 nights here and also spent some time in Patong for more nightlife. The other potential drawback is that the beach although lovely has quite cloudy water because boats go past and stir up the sandy bottom (but on the plus side it is quite interesting to watch the boats).

We got a complementary massage at the spa- This was really nice and realxing.

Chandara is wonderful! We had planned to do various trips and outings but the place is so relaxing and peaceful that we cancelled them just to spend our time around the hotel. The hotel is in a very isolated position - no other hotels or restaurants for miles, but somehow that doesn't matter (you can always get a (cheap) taxi into Phuket or Patong if you want more activity). The staff are fantastic, very fiendly and attentive, though not overpoweringly so. It has only been open a few months so is not at full occupancy 40-60% - we had the pools to ourselves. The food is fantastic and although they have you cornered they don't charge silly prices -ok its more expensive than in town, but what would you expect? The spa is beautiful and reasonably priced. The grounds are beautifully planted, the whole place is beautiful and tranquil. Fab views from every angle!
