Navatara Phuket Resort is located only a few hundred meters away from Rawai Beach. Rawai Beach, located at the south end of Phuket island, is not a swimming beach but offers beautiful views on the many nearby islands in a peaceful local atmosphere. It is a great place to enjoy seafood and a good starting point to do some island hopping. When driving south, the left side of the main pier is known as the ‘Gypsy Village’, where long established fishermen in rather precarious houses make a living of fishing, boat chartering and selling shells. Rawai Beach is very popular for the many seafood restaurants all along the waterfront. The property is only 1 kilometer from Cape View Point famous for its striking sunsets which, with its sugar palm trees, is a symbol of Phuket island and Yanui Beach which has beautiful view and quite beach. For swimming, guests can drive further west to Nai Harn, an amazing white sand beach. The property also offers a shuttle bus to this location. Overall, Rawai Beach is not the usual beach destination but offers a unique local feel. It is perfect if guests prefer a quiet and peaceful holiday with a lot of delicious seafood.

One of the best resorts I've stayed at”
After travelling around different parts of Thailand and Indonesia, I've come to the conclusion that my stay at Navatara Resort is easily one of my most memorable and unforgettable. I stayed at Navatara Resort in August 2016 (yes, 3 years ago!), so I shall not comment on the facilities of the resort since that aspect might have changed. It's however truly amazing how the staff can make so much difference. Every service staff we met in this resort was friendly and helpful with every little request we had. The free shuttle to Nai Harn beach was a fantastic bonus as we loved our afternoon there, and their recommendations on the best restaurants and massage places to go to were great too. I remember fondly that we asked to be directed to a fruit store, and a staff member went out of his way to bring us there, even helping us communicate with the seller. I would absolutely love to return one day soon. Great job, guys.
DearDai, Thank you for choosing our hotel again. We are very happy to service you and make you feel relaxing when you stay with us. We hope to see you again on your next holiday. Good Luck!!! Best Regard Milk
Staff service exceptional.”
Hotel has a very friendly atmosphere with the staff being at the centre. Hotel may not have every facility but clean and well cared for. Requests on reception dealt with immediately and they ensured that our stay was as excellent as possible.

DearDaren, Thank you for your review. We are very happy to service you and make you feel relaxing when you stay with us. For the croissant, we will keep your comment and make it better for the next time. Good Luck!! Best Regard Milk
Lovely boutique resort for a quiet stay in Phuket”
This is our second stay at Navatara and we will definitely be back! The resort and the area it is located in is quiet - perfect for a relaxed holiday. The resort is walking distance to restaurants and the Rawai beachfront. Rawai Beach is not a swimming beach, but there are many boats there that can take you to small islands close by . The hotel has a complimentary shuttle to the swimming beach and they also provide free umbrellas and beach mats. The rooms are spacious and clean and the breakfast is good. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful as well. This resort is great value for money and we will definitely stay here again when we are in Rawai.
DearOlga Thank you so much that you love our slow life hotel. We are very happy about that. For the next time If you have free time or your next holiday we hope to see you again and we will make a new experience with you again at Navatara Phuket Resort. Good Luck!!! Best Regard Milk
Great staff, good location, some issues”
I’ll start with the good points. The staff is wonderful - great customer service, and very helpful. The hotel offer free shuttle service to 4 destinations: Cape Panwa for sunset, Yanui Beach which has some good snorkeling, Naiharn Beach which gets crowded, and Rawai Fish Market/Rawai Beach where you can stroll along the waterfront and find lots of eating and shopping options. All of these places are not far, which makes Rawai Beach a nice location on Phuket - it’s a much quieter area of the island compared to Patong and the popular beaches on the west coast. The pool is nice, and the food was good - the breakfast is a generous buffet. Now for the low points. The hotel is on a busy road, and the restaurant is right along the front of the property so you get a lot of road noise. There’s a gym across the street that plays loud music during classes, some of which are at breakfast time. The hotel sits literally under 2 big cell towers, so if you’re going to stay for any length of time and are sensitive to that kind of thing, beware. The bed was horrible - way too soft, and we woke up with aches and pains every morning. Very unusual for Asia, where beds are usually rock-hard. The spa was disappointing - I had a package that included a hot oil massage and facial. My husband chose the aromatic oil massage, and both of us kept asking for more pressure. I think they’re better at Thai massage than Western-style, therapeutic massage. The facial was nice, but the whole package seemed over-priced for the quality - I paid 1,000 baht for both, and my husband’s massage was 600 baht. You can get excellent massage around the corner at Noi Massage for 300-400 baht. Overall, I think this is a good place, but doesn’t quite live up to the price we paid, which was close to $155 USD per night (during holiday, high season). There are lots of choices on Phuket, but Rawai Beach is a nice, quiet destination, and if you can get a better price on the rooms here, I’d recommend it. Maybe ask for
Highly Recommended Stay at Navatara”
Extremely kind and thoughtful staff, great location that has a nice local feeling, fantastic beaches Nai Harn and Ya Nui are a close free shuttle drive away, relaxing, beautiful saltwater pool, nice buffet breakfast.
Favourite hotel on 2 week vacation in Thailand.”
Amazing staff throughout hotel. Easy and friendly check in, complementary drink soon arrival, fresh fruit brought to our room 10 minutes later. Great food and service in restaurant. Had a late flight home and was able to use their shower facilities after checking out. Wis we would have stayed longer
we had a very nice weekend stay here. Rooms were clean and staff very friendly and helpful. They offer free shuttle service to various beaches and tourist attractions nearby. It's a bit far from the airport though which should be considered uf you just go for a weekend.
Would stay again!”
Pros: Big clean rooms, nice balcony, comfortable bed Delicious breakfast! One of the best I've had in Phuket, lots of variety, buffet and made to order menu. Free shuttle to beach with beach mat & umbrella. Friendly & helpful staff Free bikes to use Cons: On busy road, can hear road noises,, didn't bother sleep though. Location OK only if you have motor bike or car Bath towels a bit old & tattered
Good value for money, friendly staff, nice pool, ok restaurant, supermarket and few restaurants are close. few issues: only few shuttle bus to the beach daily, bed and pillows are not the most comfortable...
It's value for money. Friendly staff and clean rooms. The day we check-in was my boyfriend's birthday. One of the staff bringing a birthday cake to our room to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday! Super nice! But one thing make us quite disappointed. Our room could not see the pool. (I'm quite sure that I've booked a pool view room!) We were arranged to a room that could see nothing but trees, despite the low occupancy rates during off-peak season.
Fantastic service, great value”
Staff : friendly and attentive (all staff I encountered) Room : clean, spacious and modern Free drink : given a shell to redeem, which is a new concept to me, much more classier and stylish than a piece of paper. Fresh fruit and welcome drink on arrival and check out. Breakfast: poached eggs wernt done very well first day, scrambled eggs 2nd day we're good, buffet selection had a nice variety of food options The service at this hotel was comparable to 5 star service, even better than some 5 star I have stayed. Draw backs : gym is dated. And no real views. Location: away from the hustle and bustle. Beaches 5 - 10 minutes away by bike. Keep up the good work, hotels like yours will only force other hotels to up their game
First time at Navatara and we were very happy. Staff are fantastic, location is ideal and the rooms are very good. We have been to Phuket many times and stayed in many large and small resorts and Navatara proved as good as the reviews. We will definitely stay again. A big thank you to Nikki and Su on reception who made my wife's 60th birthday so special....its those little touches that make holidays great.
Exceeded expectations! Will go back again! ”
Navatara is highly recommended! The rooms are very clean and spacious, bathroom is great, and the quiet pool (in April) is ideal for chilling if you dont feel like leaving your hotel. The resort is at Rawai area (which is good for us because we dont like crowded areas), and Hai Narn beach nearby is quiet and beautiful. The resort provides shuttle bus service at fixed timings to the nearby attractions. We rented a bike so that we can manage our itinerary with much flexibility, and it was a great choice. The rental of motorbike from the resort is a great choice, as they are reasonably priced and very convenient because you can pick up and return the bike to the resort. Please also try the local Thai food at Archee, which is 2 min away on the left of the resort. There are also decent restaurants along the Rawai beach area. For dinner, do try out the interesting street where you buy the seafood from one stall and get the restaurant to cook for you. If I had to pick something to improve on, perhaps the management can consider providing free airport pickup as the taxi journey to and from the airport can be pretty expensive. Would like to compliment staff, Miss Jib, for giving us good recommendations and helping us on some queries. She was really friendly and made us feel welcomed at the resort! Overall, thumbs up for this resort! I would give it 6 out of 5 stars for the value!
Nice place, very calm and peace, near to Rawai beach, opposite Phuket fit, free shuttles to Nai harn beach (which is very good for swimming), good swimming pool and almost empty all the time we use it, otherwise not so many sun lounges, room is nice and comfortable, very clean, breakfast is ok (food are fresh and tasty) but quite same every day, food in the restaurant is good taste and value (very near is nice local rest Driftwood which is killer for money) except salads (we tried few), all the staff is best, thanks you!
Beautiful resort with friendly staff.”
We had a lovely time at the resort, from our friendly 3 a.m. airport pick up to our late night drop off and everything in between! The staff members were extremely friendly and helpful in making sightseeing recommendations, booking boat outings for us (departing from the nearby Rawai Beach)and shuttling and taxiing us all over the island. The rooms are clean, spacious and beautifully decorated with comfortable beds. The amenities are great and small extras such as fresh beach towels daily and a clothes drying rack on the balcony make all the difference. The resort is located within walking distance of shops, ATMs, restaurants and beach bars - close enough to everything you need, while being away from the more commercial side of the island. Highly recommended for a relaxing and truly enjoyable stay with a more local flavour.
Peaceful, Serene, Restful and Satisfying”
The hotel is not too big, but not too small. It's rather new, so everything was super clean. The staff was amazing, they were always smiling and happy to see us. Incredibly helpful. Great service. The Breakfasts were great. My fiance is a vegetarian and she loved the variety, I'm a carnivore so there was enough bacon going around as well as plenty of other veggies and tons of eggs. They don't have their own fitness centre, but straight across the road is a Kick Boxing clinic with a gym that you can use for a few Baht. Also super clean with friendly staff. You can rent a moped from the hotel, shops and restaurants are all within walking distance. Beaches are a bit of a ride, but that's all part of the adventure. I enjoyed every minute I spent at Navatara and if I ever go back to Phuket, I will definitely stay there again. We were sad to leave, which is a testament to the experience and time we spent there.
Fantastic value and great staff”
We enjoyed our stay at this new hotel Rooms were clean and comfortable and I would rate it 5 stars Staff were friendly and helpful Breakfast was decent with a wide variety I was pleasantly surprised at what good value I got Owners provided us with a free tuk tuk to take us to a very nice secluded beach. Will definitely go back when I get a chance
Extremely good service”
The hotel staff are friendly and spoke great English. Location is a little out of the way but there was a hotel shuttle to Rawai town. Rooms were great and clean. Hotel food is generally good, but the breakfast spread is pretty limited. Pool is great!
Very nice new hotel”
New hotel, very clean with a great swimming pool. The location in Rawai is close to many beach front restaurants. It is also close to Nai Harn beach. The staff were very nice and helpful. This is also a good hotel is you want to work out as there is a gym right across the street.
