Thavorn Beach Village & Spa is certainly one of the most beautiful resorts in Phuket. Opened in 1988, this perfectly maintained four-star resort occupies 10 hectares of land around (and including) the picturesque Nakalay Bay, a 10-minute drive away from Patong and Kamala beaches. Admirably integrated in its environment, Thavorn Village is like an island in a sea of green, an oasis of tranquility on Phuket west coast.
Featuring 195 rooms and bungalows allocated in three distinct zones – beach side, pool side, and hill side - Thavorn Beach Village & Spa harbours a revisited traditional Lanna style on its exterior, and a Thai contemporary style inside its spacious rooms. The resort’s dining and leisure facilities are simply excellent, offering guests a great choice of options for their catering and entertainment. Blending modern facilities in a stunning natural lush compound, Thavorn Beach Village is a stylish tropical resort in southern Thailand.

Nakalay Bay is a gem of a cove offering a 450m-long strip of white sand in between two rocky cliffs covered with jungle. At low tide, the exposed rocks provide a nice playground to children in search of crabs and other small crustaceans. At high tide, both ends of the bay and of the Loki Jetty (named after the resort’s builder), are excellent snorkelling spots.
The resort’s features two swimming pools: a small one at the southern end of the property – next to the fitness centre; and a 4,900sqm free-form lagoon pool with many corners to explore, created with islands covered by tropical plants and cascading waterfalls. Fully supervised and featuring a cool ‘Crocodile Pool Bar’ with submerged stools, this superb pool is a refreshing playground for the whole family.
Old Siam is the Thavorn Beach Village’s flagship Thai restaurant. The genuine Royal Thai cuisine served here is simply delicious, and the restaurant’s settings are almost unique in Phuket nowadays: with tables set right on the beach and lit by lanterns hanging in the trees, and with stunning views to Patong Bay, Old Siam Restaurant promises a memorable dinner.
Dedicated to nature, Thavorn Beach Village is a botanical garden made resort; throughout the alleys, and around the pool and restaurants, the property features rare breeds of tropical plants and flowers; it also includes a romantic orchid garden, and a plant nursery. The lush décor is also adorned with fountains and superb statues representing Thai Mythology characters, giving a tangible exotic touch to the property.
Concerning service, Thavorn Beach Village is in line with the high standards expected from a four-star resort in Thailand. All the personnel – from the gardeners to the waiters to the management – are entirely dedicated to the guests’ well-being and any staff-members will give a smile and wave when encountered in the property.
Staying at Thavorn Beach Village gives great opportunities to get the best of two completely different worlds: the resort itself is a haven of tranquility in a pure natural environment, but guests looking for action just need to take a 10 minute drive to reach the hustle and bustle of Patong Beach, the most lively resort town of Phuket Island.
There is no way to get bored at Thavorn Beach Village; the resort offers a wide range of leisure activities whether it be on the beachfront – kayaking, snorkelling, beach-volley, yoga, Tai Chi, and badminton; around and in the swimming pool – darts, water polo, and Thai boxing; or in dedicated venues – Thai cooking and fruit & vegetable carving classes, Thai language lessons, batik painting, fitness, and more.
Thavorn Beach Village is the perfect venue for a couple to tie the knot; the resort has a wedding planner service offering a good choice of marriage ceremonies, western or Thai style, right on the beach, poolside or in one of the superb gardens with all the decorum and elements required to make the most important day in the life of a couple a memorable one.
Set in a two-storey building featuring indoor and semi-outdoor treatment areas, a hair and beauty salon, and a boutique selling quality Thai spa products, the atmosphere of Nakalay Spa is filled in with floral fragrances and the soft sound of cascading water; which is already relaxing even before to start a massage performed by highly skilled staffs. Nakalay Spa offers a total pleasure of the senses.
Thavorn Beach Village features three zones offering a different atmosphere in a way to satisfy each of its guests’ taste: the Hill Side Zone (reachable with a cool vintage funicular) gives out splendid sea views over Patong Bay; the pool zone’s rooms offer direct or easy access to the free form swimming pool; and the Beach Zone is just the right place for guests who like to dive in the sea first thing when they wake up.
