Thavorn Beach Village & Spa

Large beach resort with modest prices not far north of Patong

Featuring 195 guest villas and suites, the Thavorn Beach Village & Spa is located on a private stretch of beach only a short ride from the heart of Patong Beach and its nightlife. This is a full-service beach resort that is popular with a very international crowd, and perhaps its most interesting feature is that prices are extremely reasonable for a 5-star beach resort in Phuket that gets strong reviews as it does.

Many of the suites and villas have a private Jacuzzi on the deck, but for those that don’t there are several pools and a secluded beach in addition to tennis courts, a fitness center, water sports, a Kids Club and much more. The quiet location is ideal for those seeking a relaxing holiday, but it’s a short taxi ride into Patong Beach, so the best of both worlds is possible here. Considering the modest prices and the positive reviews, the Thavorn Beach Village & Spa appears to be among the very best value resorts on Phuket.

What the reviews say

Reviews of the Thavorn Beach Village & Spa are very positive in general, which is actually a bit surprising considering this is one of the cheapest 5-star resorts in Phuket. Normally near the bottom of the price range you’d expect endless claims that it’s not worth 5 stars or even 4, but here nearly everyone praises almost everything, including the rooms, the service, and the food at the restaurants.

This resort gets high marks for its family facilities and range of international cuisines as well. A few guests complain that you need to hire a taxi for the short ride into the heart of Patong Beach for shopping and nightlife, but most people praise the quiet and secluded location instead. Overall, this looks to be one of the best luxury bargains in Phuket.
