Nice hotel, but slightly overpriced in my opinion.Posted Nov 1, 2013
Hotel location is very good. Right opposite the beach and about 5 - 10 mins walk left of the hotel to the shops and restaurants. Very nice gardens with roaming rabbits and chickens which my daughter enjoyed patting and feeding... 5 swimming pools with 3 kid pools. 2 kid pools are attached to the big swimming pools, the kid pool in front of the abandoned kid club doesn't seem to be much of use though. Most of the kids are swimming in the big pools... Staffs are on the average friendly except for those during breakfast.. Breakfast is of a good variety, good mix of American continental as well as Asian. Room is of a comfortable size with a big terrace overlooking the pools, gardens and a bit of seaview. The lifts are under renovation during our stay. I wish they consider giving me the first floor rooms instead of the second floor rooms so I don't have to carry my 2 years old up and down the stairs...the first floor rooms is of direct access to the gardens... Bed and pillows are slightly too hard for my preference and we requested for a king size bed but it's actually 2 twin beds combined together.. so you will feel the bump in the middle.. on a overall, the stay was pretty pleasant but average.

Good for a relaxing stay.Posted Aug 10, 2013
A nice, relaxed atmosphere and cheerful staff. Presentation was excellent, especially the gardens. Service was generally good but could be a little slow. When we booked it was not clear that there was a busy road between the hotel and the beach and that spoiled things a little.

Marvelous Thavorn Palm Beach Resort, PhuketPosted May 3, 2013
Stayed at Thavorn Palm Beach Resort with my wife for 5 nights in April 2013. Stay at the hotel was amazing and unforgettable. Beautifully landscaped gardens, swimming pools and sea beach in front of the hotel provided a natural and wonderful experience. The resort was a perfect place for vacation. Resort staff was cooperative. House keeping was excellent. Buffet breakfast was lavish and full of hygiene. Location of the resort was also good, convenient for shopping. Would love to stay again.

Great hotel. Will be fantastic when fully finishedPosted Dec 12, 2012
Pros: Amazing deluxe room & grounds
Cons: Renovation work during the day
Location: Very close to the beach & lots of restaurants, shops, etc
Fantastic room. Great setting & gorgeous grounds, including the swimming pools. There is ongoing hotel renovation which means noise from workmen tools and some facilities (eg shops) were not available.

Thavorn Village & SpaPosted Jul 7, 2012 on Hotels.com
We had to switch hotels because of the construction to the Thavorn Village & Spa villa which is very different. The resort is north of Patong and is isolated making it more expensive and troublesome to get to town. However, it was quiet and private and deluxe which was nice. The cable car ride to the villa was different and gave us a view of the ocean from up above. Perfect place for a romantic get away but was still nice change of pace for me and my kids.

Thavorn Palm Beach Resort - Karon BeachPosted Jun 12, 2012
Pros: The location, the grounds/gardens/orchids, the views and the magnificent staff.
Location: Karon beach is relaxing and peaceful and outside the monsoon season is a tremendous beach for swimming - Local shops are friendly and careful.
Love staying at the Thavorn Palm Beach. We always stay there when we travel to the Karon area, it is without a doubt our favourite hotel/resort in Phuket. Staff are magnificent, most professional with an amazing casual attitude which says "nothing is a problem". The 20 plus acres of grounds/vegetation/orchid gardens are a nature reserve and stepping around a rabbit, native hen or lyrebird when walking the grounds is quite amazing. Pools are beautiful and the grounds/gardens are amazing and ever changing. No better place to see a Phuket sunset. We look forward to our next stay at the Thavorn.

Nice place to stayPosted Feb 1, 2012
Pros: Really enjoyed the pools
Cons: We booked a standard room and air condition didnt work
Location: Great location, short walk to beach, shops and restaurants
We really enjoyed the hotel overall however we booked a standard room where the air condition wasnt working properly and our view out the window was out onto a side street. I would recommend staying here as the grounds and pools were lovely to relax in but would recommend booking a deluxe room. We are also from Australia and found the hotel to be full of mostly Russians, we were even given all our hotel information in Russian, I had to ask to have it changed to English.

Great pool/gardens average roomPosted Sep 20, 2011 on Hotels.com
If your looking to not spend much time in room this hotel could be an option. The bathroom was not pleasant, very very old, shower sprayed everywhere but down. massive pool and gardens, pool bar always seemed closed. good breakfast, bit of a distance (1km) to main shops and the taxi want take you around for under 200b so gets costly if you dont want to walk

Beautiful HotelPosted May 5, 2011 on Hotels.com
Beautiful hotel, but the standard room had a moldy bathroom and the room was very rundown. The concierge assumes that everyone speaks Russian (I kept getting hotel notices in Russian after telling them multiple times that I speak English only). Staff should also speak English (cab drivers knew the language better than concierge).

Perfect for RelaxationPosted Jul 28, 2010
This hotel was amazing for the price I paid. It had everything you need for a relaxing holiday. 5 pools gives ample choice and the beach which is just across the road is nice, but a little bit dirty from what the sea had washed up. The staff are very helpful and friendly. A highly reccommended hotel.
