I was in Phuket from Jan through March and I booked over a month with The Lawan Residence. It's a nice place and Joy is fantastic to deal with. However, even though the rooms sound like a great deal when you're searching online it turns out I was paying way to much. I was doing my Divemaster course with West...

We would like to make a few points in response to your reivew: 1) We are the new owners of Lawan Residence. 2) We have contacted the previous owner regarding your stay at Lawan and we understand that you had a grievance as your travel partner left early leaving you to pay his bill. We understand this was the main...

Lovely big, spacious, clean room, great location. Joy is lovely, so nice and helpful. A few people commented on what a good price we had achieved in Patong for such a nice hotel. I will say though that the music from the gym was a bit off putting. We were on the 1st floor sharing a wall with the gym...

I've had the most amazing time in Phuket, Thailand. Part of it, really thanks to Lawan Residence. I spent most of my time outside, visiting the islands, outside excursions, shopping and etc, why pay a lot for your hotel? This place has great value for money. All you need is a good night sleep with comfy bed, clean bathrooms, safety...

I stayed at Lawan Residence for 19 nights in August/ September. I fully recommend it, the staff are very friendly (Joy and Co), the owner Gary is a friendly and approachable chap. Lawan is located close enough to the action of Patong, while not being too close either. The rooms are cleaned very well on a daily basis and there...

My stay at the Lawan was the best value and experiance during my holiday to Thailand. Resonable prices, close to beach,malls, clubs, restauants, and non stop nightlife. Safe in the room was well sized, the staff friendly, and the room was clean and safe. It was the perfect blend of modern comforts nestled among the thai culture, next visit I...

I recently returned from spending 8 nights at the Lawan. The hotel offers all that I look for when I am travelling. I had a spacious clean room with a big, comfortable bed. There was quiet, efficient air conditioning that did not keep me awake. The location is excellent (less than 3 mins walk to Junkceylon) and a short stroll...

This is a reasonably low cost hotel in Patong, Phuket.. Location is great walking distance to all attractions. The Manager Joy is really a fantastic person. She goes out of her way to make sure everything is perfect for you. She is the GEM of The Lawan Residence. Rooms are good and spacious very clean. Highly Recommended
