Lovely staff. Good size room (Superior) and really comfy bed. Wifi a bit hit and miss, great pool/s, and quick access to the beach. Only downside is that it’s not walking distance to Karon so you’ll either need to hire a scooter or grab a tuk-tuk/taxi which were pricey-er than I anticipated.

Hotel was close to the beach. The staff were lovely! There was a lot of noise from the apartments behind the resort that disturbed my sleep a few times. Overall nice place to stay.

Friendly staff that can speak English, nice room with beautiful Seaview, quiet and close to beach and shops. Only issue was the amount of stairs to get to the room. Not recommended for handycaped or unfit people.

The room was outdated, the bathroom wasn’t nice.

The staff were amazing, grateful for the birthday extra for my sister in law. The room was outdated no draws for storage and there was a big tree in the way of our beautiful ocean view. My mother and her husband stayed also in this resort and we paid more then them and got an upgrade but their room had a better view. Which was disappointing.

Great location

Overall excellent hotel, but need to put lifts into buildings as six flights of stairs to room. Had to request room cleaned on a number of occasions and had to go and find cleaner as ran out of basics, such as coffee and toiletries that they had failed to replace. Otherwise good restaurant good, breakfast was excellent and cooking course amazing

Amazing staff, Sea View rooms a must

Kimberly Guest Relations Officer is amazing! Great service, great views from Sea View rooms. Easy access to Kata Beach. Hillside property so lots of stairs ok!

Great hotel, walking distance to the beach

Pros: Proximity to the beach and the relaxed atmosphere. There are two pool areas to choose from and one appeared to attract families more so.
Cons: Wi-fi reception was not great and I think that this could be improved. Watching a movie sometimes was a problem, it kept cutting out.
Our experience at the Chanalai Gardens Resort was a positive one. The hotel is situated walking distance to the beach and within a short walk to some really nice spots to eat. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful with any request. During our stay there was a significant storm, which knocked out all of the electricity from 11pm until midday the following day. Unfortunately, the weather was excessively hot and this obviously meant that you could not retreat to the coolness of your room for respite from the heat. The hotel kept us informed and were very apologetic.
