4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Chanalai Romantically exceeded our expectations . Best service we have ever had . Chanalai staff would always make sure your stay is 100% perfect and any minor problems would be sorted immediately. Would definitely be staying here again if we go back to phuket in future

Stayed at the Chanalai Romantica for 9 nights in July 2017. Really enjoyed the stay. Very nice hotel, clean spacious rooms, nice pool, good location close to beach (10 min walk), shops and bars. Staff were great - special thanks to Dianne, Guest Relations Officer.

This resort is in a great location close to walking distance of Kata Beach. Great deal as well for $35/night through The pool is spectacular and huge! Rooms are well kept. clean, and comfy beds. The staff is super sweet and helpful!!! Do NOT eat at the restaurant here! The first day we got in, we had lunch there and the food was greasy and nasty. We paid for breakfast the whole week when we pre-booked and after the first morning I would never eat there again. The food lacks quality and the fruit tastes like nothing. I had stomach pains and diarrhea just after eating breakfast the first day and never ate there the rest of the week. I hope they change the food here when that would make it a 5 star place to stay. Eat elsewhere!

I agree wholeheartedly with the other positive reviews. The service and rooms are outstanding. The beds are large and comfortable. The rooms and bathrooms are well designed and there is a nice bathtub in both rooms we stayed in. We stayed at several more expensive properties in Phuket and Thailand, but Chanalai Romantica Resort was by far the best experience. The sister property Chanalai Garden Resort disappointed us with its inconvenient largeness and many stairs. Chanalai Romantica Resort gave us a more intimate feeling with spacious rooms overlooking the pool and a short walk to good eating and the beach. When we returned to Chanalai Romantica Resort later in our Thailand trip, they welcomed us with special decorations in our room. We were blown away. We hadn't told them that we were returning, since we booked both stays online. The fitness center is outdated, but good enough. The pool is excellent for fitness swimming or just splashing around. Generally there were very few people at the pool. The breakfast is okay. The fresh cooked omelettes are the best part. Room service was great and cheap, considering the convenience. There was a 15% off room service deal versus the restaurant, so we had the delicious Hawaiian pizza. The airport shuttle is a reasonable rate, but we booked a Grabcar for some small savings. For the price, this place is unbeatable. All of the comforts of a resort while still being able to walk out onto the street in 30 seconds.

We spent 3 nights here and loved it! We received a free room upgrade upon check in with pool access. Our room was beautiful, large and impressive! King size bed, large shower, two bottles of free water a day. It's a 5 minute, at most, walk to Kata beach. They provide beach towels and a beach mat. Great buffet breakfast with LOTS of choice for 200baht/person. Pool is refreshing and private from the pool access rooms. There is a swim up bar with reasonable priced drinks (for Phuket, more expensive than elsewhere in Thailand). Dianne, their customer service rep comes and talks to you at breakfast and makes sure everything is okay and answers any questions. She is really nice and helpful!!

We stayed for 9 nights at the resort. The facilities were up to standard and staff provided good service and were very much focussed on to ensure that we had a great stay. Appreciated that no small children are allowed as it makes things a bit quieter. Breakfasts served was good and Wi-Fi worked very well. Form a value for money point of view - a great option to consider. The Kata beach area is also less hectic than Patong

Love as first sight when i met this word on the bed " Warm welcome " . All staff at CRR are service by heart . I'll comeback and visit CRR again. Don'miss enjoy with foods and drinks. From here only 5 minutes you can go to Kata beach at there you can do more activity that you love.

Great place to spend holiday with your partner. Nice and clean room. Very friendly and service mind staffs. I would love to visit there again. The hotel located on the main street close to many bars and restaurants. Walking distance to beach appoximately 7-10 minutes. We were so impressed by staffs. They were so friendly and helpful. Resonable price.

Stayed at the Chanalai Romantica for 4 nights, 2 in a pool view room and 2 in a pool access room. The hotel was pretty central to everything, only a few minutes walk to the beach and it is positioned quite central on the Main Street for shops and restaurants. Both rooms we had were really nice, the pool view room was quite big, bigger than the pool access room but the pool access room was a little nicer given you could get straight into the pool from your room. I should say thought that most of the pool access rooms do not get direct sunlight on to the balconies so you still need to use a sun lounger on he opposite side of the pool. The staff were very friendly and quite helpful if you asked them anything. The breakfast was good, same every day with no verity. All in all I would recommend staying here and would stay again if I returned to Kata Beach.

We love Kata beach for it's Quite but Phuket life buzz. Chanalai Romantica was eveything we expected it to be. A good smallish resort that provides everything you need for a easy holiday in Kata. A clean pool area, good eating area for the breakfast. We paid for inclusion in booking. It was a little strange eating dinner foods for breakfast but all in all it was pretty good. But it was the staff that made this place great. Nothing was a problem, our room was immaculately cleaned and we were fussed over by the staff when I got sick. I couldn't recommended this place enough. I will stay here again for sure if we go back to Phuket.
