Super off-season getaway
We stayed at Chava in August, enjoying a great off-season discount, and loved everything about it. The 2-bedroom family apartments are fabulously comfortable and well-equipped. The breakfasts are delicious and offer a great variety (also a refreshing change to order from the menu instead of a buffet). The staff are fantastic and speak the best English I've so far encountered here. The beach (a short walk away) is very peaceful, attractive and free of dirt-generating bars etc. Only (very minor) downside is that the pool is perhaps a little small/lacking in slides etc if your kids tend to spend all their time there. Would highly recommend.

Fantastic Hotel for Young Children
We stayed at the Chava Resort for 5 nights while visiting friends in Phuket. We found the resort to be well prepared for young children and had the facilities to match. The pool area has lots of rest areas (seats) of different variety, though I must say one or two families can make the pool area seem "claimed". The apartment facilities were great. The kitchen was well equipped with all that you might need which was much appreciated to ensure that we could provide for our daughter during our stay. It was also very well organized so that it took us very little time to find our way around the apartment and make it ours. We will be back to Phuket many times to visit friends and will likely stay at the Chava again.

A sanctuary on Surin Beach
We really enjoyed our stay in the 2 bedroom penthouse at the Chava. The facilities were very modern, clean and well appointed. Loved all the lush vegetation and flowers around the grounds. The breakfast was decent but the Thai items on the dinner menu could use some better flavoring. Wonderful service was given by the staff. This place is a nice escape from the crowds of Phuket.

Comfy apartment
Clean, exclusive, quiet
The apartment is nice & comfy, with a big kitchen. The pool of the resort is big and during low peak not many ppl swim in it so we've got the place to ourselves. The breakfast was nice where u can order whatever u want from the menu. But the staff at the breakfast table were not too friendly though. They were not too accomodating when u kept ordering even though it's a buffet breakfast.

Pleasant stay at The Chava
Proximity to surin beach. Spacious villa. Peaceful and quiet.
Surin as a location is quite central and self sufficient. One could actually chill around Surin for a few days without the need to go to Patong/phuket town. Our first time at The Chava. We've stayed at Twin Palms on a few occasions so we know Surin quite well. Our 2 bedroom apartment at The Chava was well stocked with all amenities of a self contained unit. Generally unit seemed to be clean but on our first 2 days, our eyes seemed to itch and tear, which usually happens when there is dust. So while the unit seemed clean there must have been quite a lot of dust for us to react like this way. Nonetheless, the place was cleaned daily. Rooms are spacious. My son loved the giant tub so it was easy to lure him back from the beach cos there was round 2 of water play at home. Our stay included breakfast. It's a standard breakfast menu and after a few days it started to get boring. I would suggest that they included one or two daily specials, perhaps local breakfast items like Thai noodles. The resident Thai chef cooks beautiful thiai food and I do think the resort should let her showcase her talent. We had the opportunity to order room service one night and the Thai dishes were beautifully executed! The concierge is not 24/7 but that didn't really bother us. They were there when we needed them. Speaks good English, friendly and knowledgeable. There is also in room massage. Our first night , we requested the concierge to arrange for in room massages for us. Everything was arranged perfectly! There is no kids club and gym facilities however for a nominal fee you can use the facilities at the property next door. I would suggest the property invest in an extensive entertainment library for those rainy days. Eg. DVD titles, gamin consoles n games. They could be rented for a nominal fee. Generally a no frills but comfortable resort for the family.

Clean, friendly, convienient
This is our first time at the Chava Resort. It is a very friendly resort to stay. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Manager Peter is very nice to us as well. You will see him helping at the kitchen sometimes. The breakfast is so good also their hamburgers and other Thai food or Salads as well. The apartment is big. It is also very convienient location. From Chava trun to the left is Family Mart, to the right has a pharmecy store. Walk for 5 minutes, you will be on the Surin Beach. There are so many good resturants on the beach. Our kids didn't want to go home on the last day. We had the great time at Chava. For sure we will go back again.

Lack of sleep. No dark curtains in the room. The kids were up at 6.30 every morning because it is so bright in the rooms. Really not appropriate for young kids.
