My partner & I stayed in a 1-bedroom Family Suite at the Chalong Miracle Lakeview apartment/hotel resort from 18/5/2018 to 22/5/2018. Our unit was at the Building C3, room number 168. At 90 sq m., the apartment is luxuriously huge and caters comfortably to all our needs.

The room looks exactly as the pics shown in the website. It has a self-sufficient kitchen with a full-sized fridge and a dining table with 4 chairs. In the living area, there are 2 large comfy sofas and a large TV with many cable channels.

The balcony is also an extremely big and a longish one which can be accessed either from the living room or the bedroom. The were 2 deck-chairs with foot-rest and a table in it. The reclining chairs were so comfortable and there was a good breeze coming from the mountains which our balcony was facing, that I dozed off in it several times while relaxing after a long day of sightseeings.

The bedroom is also one of the largest that I had ever stayed while on holidays before. It has a huge double bed with a single bed next to it. No lack of sleeping space to be sure. The beds were very comfortable and clean and there is also another TV in the bedroom too.

There are 2 bathrooms in the apartment (a luxurious consideration by any standard). The one in the bedroom is huge and spacious. It has a LARGE bath tub with jacuzzi jets and a separate shower cubicle. One of the many plus points in this apartment is also that the water pressure is strong and it takes only just a few minutes to fill up the huge bath tub. Soaking in the warm bubbly water of the tub is one of the high points of my day after a tiring day of shopping and exploring the island. The towels provided are also plentiful and of very good material. Big, soft and nice-smelling too !

This condotel resort is a newly built one and has an extremely huge compound. Its more like a mini residential estate. The entrance to the compound is a large and grand affair, and its just off the street side (which is a good thing when comparing to other places up the hills which have steep slopes to navigate before reaching the premises.) Right at the entrance before the security guards post, there is a round-about with a water fountain in it and sculptures of seahorses. In the evening all these are lit up and it sure is a pretty sight for some memorable photo takings.

The compound is so large that there is even a lake in it where free water-cycling is available. There are also gardens and outdoor exercising corners. All in all, this place exudes a feeling of spaciousness both inside the apartments and their exterior surroundings. Unlike some other establishments where the apartments may be big but have no compound grounds or exterior spaces to speak of.

There are also a few swimming pools, a gym, massage facility (though going to the outside massage shops along the next street would be cheaper at 300 bahts/pax) and a restaurant here. Morning breakfast is the usual buffet style and if your accommodation does not includes breakfast you can purchase it at 300 bahts/pax.

Now for the cons of this place :

As the name suggests, the resort is situated in the Chalong area, which is roughly located at the central-eastern part of Phuket. It is NOT at the western coast where most tourists would usually stay for close proximity to shopping activities, eg. Patong, Karon or Kata. Therefore, do not expect to step out of the resort expecting to see the normal hustle and bustle of shopping activities associated with a Phuket holiday. Make sure you check out the location of the place in Google map first before you are drawn in by the pretty (but accurate) pictures of the resort shown in the website. It is not anywhere near walking distant to the shopping districts or to the beaches. If you are driving (just like we do), then the location is not a problem. Anywhere to the town areas and shopping places like Patong, Karon, Kata, Phuket Town, Central Festival Mall, is only less than half hour away. Being in the Chalong area, the Big Buddha, Wat Chalong, Weekend Night Market, Phuket Sunday Walking Street, Phuket Zoo, Dolphin Bay Show, King Power Mall is just about 15 mins drives away. Furthermore, along the next lane ( Soi Ta-iad) there are many cheap massages shops (eg. good ones like Sabai Sabai & Iyara massage), eating places and many Muay Thai training camps/gyms.

On the next main street, Chao Fah Tawan OK road, there are many street side Seafood Buffet, BBQ Buffet, Grilled Seafood Buffet that is very good and affordable. We went to the Pang Kung Moo Kata Seafood Buffet open air restaurant. It is a steamboat cum grilled food dining. The place is mostly frequented by the locals as it is very cheap at 199 bahts per head (excluding drinks - which would be additional 100 bahts for a big bottle of coke and 50 bahts for a bucket of ice. Still very cheap.) Huge spread of all types of meats and seafood. More than one can possibly eat. Servers do not speak much English but they are extremely helpful and friendly. No need to talk much anyway. Just go get yourself whatever you would like to eat.

So would I recommend others to the Chalong Miracle Lakeview ? Yes, if they drive or are at least knowledgeable of where they are staying. Would I stay in this resort again ? A BIG YES !!! We always drive when in Phuket, so the location away from town areas is not a problem at all. We visit Phuket almost every year for the last 10 years and have NEVER stayed in any place twice. The Chalong Miracle Lakeview Condotel Resort will be the first that we feel its worthwhile staying again. As a matter of fact, it would very well be our base from now on each time we visit Phuket. For the price of such an accommodation, NO other places in Phuket (those that we had stayed in over the years that is) can beat it in term of value for money !

Room Tip: Go for the highest floor possible. ie. the 7th floor.

This was a last minute decision as we needed to be in chalong, the staff looked after us very well. We had a great apartment with great views of the lake and temple.
There are a few facilities available such as tandem bikes, pedalos on the lake and there is a restaurant on site. There are several pools and the complex is maintained to high standard, just felt a little lonely at times.

Room Tip: There are several blocks and i would trust staff to give best room with views

Location - About 30 mins from airport 800 baht taxi. We booked this apartment as is nearby Tiger Muay Thai training camp
1st impression- No real hotel lobby but a low key reception. Own apartment block with security gates entry and parking outside
Hotel Ameneties - small bar, 7-11 on site, little cafe, restaurant
Staff - Limited english but extremely polite and helpful. My wife left the balcony door open one day and let some bugs in whilst we were out. We called the staff who removed what bugs they found. We asked for a change of room and they obliged. We got moved from block c7 to c2 and the room had the same layout but much better furniture
Food - Limited breakfast buffet, lack of cheese, juice and cereals, no yoghurts, no baked beans, disappointment
Gym- very small limited gym but we trained at Tiger Muay Thai round the corner so didnt use gym
Pool- big excellent pool with waterfall and water squirters with pool bar
Restaurant - decent food mainly thai dishes, good if you like seafood
Amenities nearby- good choice of restaurants nearby on tiger muay thai road, from o oh on the main road corner to Ali grill further on down the road.
Room - very good luxury apartments with balcony. 1 bathroom with jacuzzi bath and shower booth. 2nd with shower booth toilet and sink. Very spacious bedroom. Plasma tv, channels limited so bought firestick with netflix and streamed you tube. Samsung Tv will not stream. Utility room with washing machine and living room very spacious with samsung tv and big sofa. Dining table, microwave, cooker, cups plates and kitchen utensils provided.
Price - cheaper less quality hotels around but this one was quality and luxurious compared and served the purpose of going to train and gym for us
Parking - free outside apartment
Overall - we hired moped from tiger muay thai and haggled price and it was their last one. Very cheap and saved us lots on taxi fare. But only get if you are a confident rider the roads are dangerous. Thankfully the drivers are careful and I seen no road rage at all for 2 weeks and there are plenty mopeds around. Best local mall is Central festival Phuket, do not go to king power or the premium outlet. They are both a waste of time. Cheap food on ground floor ship restaurant at the end of the ground floor on central mall. All food and drink on ground floor was cheaper than even markets. I was surprised and it was brilliant quality and fantastic choice
Tiger land is a must got to but I felt bad for the tigers :(
Excellent quality apartments at a good price depending time of year

We stayed here for 11 nights while training at nearby Tiger Muay Thai. You can walk there in less than 10 minutes.

It was a huge one bedroom apartment with a kitchen and two bathrooms. There was even a laundry room with a washing machine. That was great as we were exercising each day that saved us a lot of money.

There was a huge balcony, free wifi and daily cleaning. Staff were friendly and the two swimming pools glorious.

The only downside was loud music from around the pool on weekend evenings. That didn't go on late but as we were up every day at 5.00am for training we needed early nights and good sleep.

We recommend this place and would stay there again.

This is more of an apartment than a hotel so if you are staying awhile and have transportation options then this place is good and the price was good. The units were nice but already showing things starting to come apart, and if other guests were loud in the halls or outside (which they were!) then you heard EVERYTHING! This was also far from the main areas and didn't have great walkability, but it was convenient for pick up for excursions. The pool was great and it was very safe gated community. Next time I would pick a hotel in an area with more walkable stuff around us and much closer to the water.
