Thavorn Beach Village & Spa, Phuket is a 5-star hotel located in Nakalay Beach between Kalim beach and Kammala beach. It is about 4 kilometers from Patong beach. The area is very peaceful and quiet, so it is just perfect for refreshing, recharging, and relaxing. Thavorn Beach Village & Spa is one of not many hotels that have private beachfront so it is a good choice for those who like to escape from the crowd. Thavorn Beach Village & Spa is in Thavorn hotel group which is one of the very first hotel groups in Phuket. Thavorn hotel group has run hotel business for centuries and as 2 hotels including Thavorn Palm Beach Resort, Karon beach and this Thavorn Beach Village & Spa. This is the 4th generation of the hotel group who run the business and they have adjusted business strategy up to date. Thavorn Beach Village & Spa is on about 47 acres, divided into 3 zones including the Cottage, the Tropical, and the Hillside. The hotel is in Thai-style with traditional Thai architecture. There is a lot of green spaces all around the hotel, it is very refreshing and calm the heat down a little bit. There is also a huge 4,900 Sqm - free form swimming pool surrounded the resort. Another highlight of the resort would be the one and only Cable Car used in the hotel in Phuket that can take you up to the Hillside zone.
The resort is in Thai style which is well-matched with the greenery surroundings just like the concept of the resort "Where Thai Tradition Meets Nature". Once we step out of the car by the lobby, we feel very refreshing.
The resort is located in Nakalay Beach about 4 kilometers from Patong beach. It is truly private and peaceful here since there is no restaurant, pub, bar, department store nearby at all. For those who want to go out, there is a complementary shuttle bus to Patong beach according to the shuttle bus time-table, very convenient.
Not only the greenery surroundings everywhere but also a huge 4,900 Sqm - free form swimming pool surrounded the resort that make this place very special and perfect for a total getaway and relaxation.
Let's go and have a look at the guestrooms. As I have told you there are 3 zone of guestrooms which are the Cottage, the Tropical, and the Hillside. Let's have a look at the 1st zone, the Cottage. The cottage zone is like a bungalow divided into 2 part, Beachfront Cottage with the sea view and Beach Cottage Partial sea view with gardens.
The Tropical is a Thai-style guestroom zone by the swimming pool with 2 types of guestrooms, Tropical pool view on the upper and the popular Tropical Pool Access on the lower. And of course the Tropical Pool Access is more expensive than the upper ones. The decoration of both types are all the same but some of them are with in-room Jacuzzi.
And the last zone, the Hill. I stay here as well, it is like a hill side guestroom. They are also in Thai-style and they all have a sea view. Another highlight of the guestrooms in this zone is that some of them are with a jacuzzi on the balcony. Therefore, you are able to dip in the jacuzzi while enjoying the amazing sea view and these types of rooms are called Hillside Ocean View with Jacuzzi.
And let's see the cable car, another highlight of this resort. For those who stay in Hillside zone, you will ride a cable car to get to your room and the service is 24/7 controlled by professional resort staff. The resort get this concept from the mining industry in the past which the ancestor used to do before they started doing the hotel business.
Let's see the guestrooms in Hill Side zone, they are decorated in yellow tone and the room is pretty big.
There is a bathtub with the wide window which you can enjoy the sea view while taking a bath, very nice.
There is also a jacuzzi on the balcony in Hill Side zone, you can enjoy the jacuzzi with maximum privacy.
There is a Wifi throughout the resort and I have tested the signal which is pretty good. This is perfect for those who have to work online while they are here too.
Wandering around the resort, we can feel the freshness from the greenery surroundings. We even feel that we are in the forest, tropical forest. The management team of the hotel aims to have the garden and the surroundings as real as nature combined with Thai architecture. I think this is a great idea and very well experience for those who come from other countries.
There are clay statue from Thai novel decorating around the resort which is good for those who want to find a photo shooting spots.
Since there are a lot of tall trees all around, the hammocks are prepared for those who want to chilling, reading books, and listening to the relaxing sounds of waves.
There are also places the by the beach for sun-tanning and chilling.
And please don't be afraid that it will be boring here, the resort offers variety of activities such as Yoga class, Thai courses, Thai boxing, and many more sports. So I am sure you can't get bored here.
You can also rent the kayak from the resort, not far from the shore you can do snorkeling. There are fishes and coral reef.
After wandering around the resort, I am pretty tired because the resort is huge about 47 Acres. I stop by "Thai Sala", a cafe where you can have some tea, coffee, drinks, bakery, and cakes. There are also 2 main restaurant in the resort which are Old Siam Restaurant serving Thai cuisine and Marisa Terrace Restaurant serving breakfast and international cuisine.
And of course there is a word spa in the name of the resort, therefore; there is spa named "The Nakalay Spa". The spa offer wide range of services from Traditional Thai masssage, foot reflexology to Aromatherapy massage.
The fitness center is located in front of the beach so you can enjoy the Andaman sea view while working out.
Children's pool is also available.
One more highlight of the resort is that there is a "Tropical Orchid Garden". With the love and interest in orchid of the owner, they have created a wonderful orchid garden for those who like to see the beauty of Thai orchid.
This Tropical Orchid Garden is another hot spot for photo taking with many clay statue all around.
Almost the end of the day, let's walk through the lobby at night. It is very beautiful and well-decorated with chandelier in the middle and clay statue from Thai novel.
The amazing view at twilight in the resort.
The resort also offer a private Beachfront Dinner, reservation is needed in advance.
So it is a goodbye for now and I would like to say goodbye with this amazing sun set photo taken from Thavorn Beach Village & Spa at
Nakalay Beach. For those who is seeking for a 5-star resort with private beach and calm atmosphere for total refresh, recharge, and relax while enjoy experiencing Thai-style resort, Thavorn Beach Village & Spa, Phuket will be one of your best choices.
