When planning our Epic Family Southeast Asia Travel Adventure, we booked in advance this heavenly Airbnb pool hotel in Rawai for our first days in Phuket. We chose this lovely place because Rawai area is the most quite and peaceful place in the south of Phuket. After our previous visit of the island and the research we made from home, we wanted to find a 6-month rental there, therefore this lovely Airbnb was a great starting point of our journey.
We are not huge fans of big chain hotels, but small and cozy places, and this one was fantastic! When we arrived we found a hidden gem, only a 2-3 minutes walk to the gorgeous Rawai Beach. The name of the place is Namphung Residence Phuket and it is owned by Tony, a helpful and extremely kind young French, who runs the place along with his Thai family. Our flight landed early in the morning, but Tony and his wife welcomed us warmly and let us check in before the appointed time. That was highly appreciated since all of us, especially the kids were so exhausted after the long haul flight from Europe.
Namphung Residence Phuket is a small piece of heaven, featuring 7 duplex apartments, decorated in a beautiful Thai style. Our apartment was spacious, comfortable and immaculate clean, and completely enough for a family of four. On the ground floor there was a large living room, a bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen. The sofa bed could accommodate 2 people and it’s just perfect if you’re traveling with your kiddos or friends.
The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare some delicious food. As you already know, we LOVE cooking, so every day we enjoyed yummy homemade vegan meals on the lovely veranda, overlooking the pool : )
Upstairs there was a romantic, bright and spacious bedroom with a king size bed and a beautiful bathroom. The cozy balcony had a stunning view over the outdoor pool and the lush tropical garden. This cute little place was our favorite spot to relax after the kids fall asleep. We enjoyed a free high speed WiFi as well, which was really important since we had to work form the hotel.
We were pleasantly surprised by the service we have received during our stay in Namphung Residece Phuket. Our apartment was cleaned every day, fresh towels were provided daily and the sheets were changed daily or every two days. That’s rather a first-class hotel service and not an usual Airbnb service! The lady who cleaned our room was absolutely wonderful too!
One of the best features here was the lovely outdoor swimming pool. A quite and peaceful place to chill out, surrounded by lush tropical greenery. We all (especially our two monkeys!) fell in love with this little gem! We spent every afternoon by the pool drinking coconuts, reading books and having fun in the water. A pure heaven : )
One of the reasons we booked this super cute Airbnn pool hotel in Rawai was its fantastic location. The hotel was well situated in a beautiful quite street, away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to Rawai Beach and an abundance of restaurants, bars, supermarkets, pharmacies and banks.
Rawai Beach with its colorful local restaurants is located only a few minutes walk from the hotel. Although it looks so serene and romantic, the beach is not suitable for swimming. However, the good news is that Nai Harn Beach and Yanui Beach (definitely one the most stunning beaches in Phuket!) are only 7-8 minutes drive from Namphung Residence Phuket. And, Phromthep Cape, one of the most famous viewpoints in Phuket is the best place to catch the sunset.
If you are heading to Rawai and you’re looking for a cozy, quite and serene place to relax, Namphung Residence Phuket will be the best choice! The kind and helpful host, the friendly stuff and the beautiful atmosphere will definitely make you feel like home away from home. We all fell in LOVE with this cute little paradise and we recommend it with all our hearts!
