Fantastic hotel near to beach and restaurantsPosted Dec 4, 2013
We stayed for 8 nights in total and were very sad to leave. The staff and location was everything we wanted and it didn't dissapoint. On our first day the shower did not have hot water and within 5 minutes of telling them they were in and gave us a new shower. Pool is small but not busy so really enjoyed that and the staff were all so friendly with us. Would definitely go back.

Cosy hotel near the beachPosted Nov 20, 2013
Pros: The cafe in the hotel serves pretty good Thai cuisine. There was complimentary carpark which was very helpful if you rent a vehicle for the trip.
Cons: There could be additional facilities and programs for the guest, such as a gym, cooking classes, Dvd for rentals, etc.
Location: Do visit Green pepper cafe just opposite Fanari. It has a great sunset view. Enzo Japanese restaurant is a must-go too!
Fanari was relatively easy to locate. It is a 3-5 minutes walk to the beach and 10 minutes walk to Bang Niang market. The facilities and rooms in Fanari are relatively basic. The staff were very friendly and helpful and were very meticulous with details. They took note of all the special requests that I made for the booking. Overall Fanari is a good place to relax and chill.

Fanari Courtyard HotelPosted May 10, 2013
Pros: The friendliness & service.
Location: Not directly on the beach, a three minute walk away.
Had a very nice stay at the Fanari Courtyard. The most pleasing aspect was the friendliness & politeness of the staff but that is typical of Thailand. It is an attractive hotel set in very pretty gardens & conveniently positioned across the road from a beautiful beach. Although the hotel does not have banking facilities, there are plenty of A.T.Ms in the local area. The local restaurants are very good & the facilities of Khao Lak town, including shops, banks & bars are only a ten minute taxi ride away. There are many very interesting excursions available such as elephant trekking,sea canoeing & visits to Khao Sok nature reserve. All in all, I am happy to recommend this hotel & this particular area of Thailand.

clean, convenient hotelPosted Mar 14, 2013
Pros: Pool side room, tour bike guide
Cons: Poolside great room however being ground floor its a little darker
Location: 10 min walk to markets and main road, 2 min walk to beach.
Visited in March 2013. Great hotel for relaxing stay near beach and close to shops. We booked for just under AUD$200 for three nights in a pool side room (you literally walked out your back door and into the pool). All the staff were helpful and spoke decent English. The transfer from airport was thb1600 for two people and took just over an hour from phuket. The way back we hired a driver from a tour desk on the street which was $1200. The tour/bike shop attached to the hotel is run by a really nice and helpful guy called olah/p? He recommended hiring a bike to explore which was perfect for riding to and from the markets (3min ride, 10 min walk) and riding to our fav local restaurant on the main road at the end of the strip of shops with yellow sign. We also rode to the beach at jw Marriott and the waterfall (7km) which were both easy rides. The waterfall is not much of a water fall though. Highly recommend staying at Fanfari. Clean, good location 2 min walk from bang Niang beach. Decent price, helpful staff. Tasty breakfast included and good selection.

Khao Lak - a Ghost town in SeptemberPosted Sep 26, 2011 on Hotels.com
The hotel was lovely but we were the only guests! It was slightly off putting to have 6 staff waiting to serve us at breakfast and the same number to clean our 2 rooms. Unfortunately we really went at the wrong time of the year as the whole area was empty and we were unlucky to have torrential downpours for 2 of the 3 days we were there which caused considerable flooding around the streets. No swimming, snorkelling, diving or even wandering along the beach at this time of year. I was under the impression from the website that the hotel was on the beach but this wasn't the case as it is a street back so no views. We booked online and requested 2 pool villas but when we arrived, they were not really near the pool. We were able to pay extra to upgrade to be around the 2nd much nicer pool, in the main complex but considering we were the only guests, I was surprized to be asked to pay extra for this. Friendly staff with an A La Carte breakfast provided. A short stroll down the road with a variety of restaurants and market type shops-all mostly empty but very keen to tempt us in. Probably a nice place when it is busy and has a buzz to it but a ghost-town for us. We took the bus from Phuket which took about 2 hours but was a great way to travel as very modern and comfortable costing only 90 baht each with a short tuk tuk ride at the other end.

needs more servicesPosted Jun 4, 2011
the hotel was set way back and the taxi driver got lost. they have no tea or coffee or kettle in the rooms which was a let down after travelling so far and i was ready for a nice hot drink. i was going to be charged 300 baht for the privalige but got one the next morning. i went out of season so expect lotsof rain. the markets were about 20 minutes walk which was ok . lots of shops closed down for the season too. they have a tv and you get 68 channels but 3 were sports, and only 1 had movies in my language. the rest i could not understand. would recommend if dont mind been bored and you dont like a night cuppa. i wold not go back but you decide.
