普吉府 Pineapple Guesthouse
291/4 Patak Road Karon
Pineapple Guesthouse comprises 20 private rooms, a ten bed dorm and a cafe.
The private rooms are all comfortably furnished with good mattresses! 19 of the rooms have air-conditioning, cable TV, en suite bathroom with hot shower, a safe, large fridge and free wifi access. 10 of these are designated superior as they have balconies and are newly decorated. Standard rooms have similar facilities but are at the back of the guesthouse with no balconies.
We have king (six foot beds), twin and triple rooms available. The triples consist of a double and a single bed, so two of you will have to share a bed. There's also one fan double room, not en suite but with TV, safe and fridge.
The dorm room opened in 2008 and has been very popular. It's a ten bed mixed dormitory. Each bed has its own fan and there's now aircon at night as well. Linen and towels are provided and changed regularly. There's a choice of hot and cold showers plus two sinks and a toilet within the dorm area with additional facilities in Pineapple Guesthouse. Each bed has its own light, electric socket for recharging your phones and Ipods and there's a good sized security locker for every person. There's even a communal fridge. It is cleaned daily.
Pineapple Cafe is below the dormitory and has good Thai food at cheap prices, a selection of English foods, a great breakfast menu plus reasonably priced beer and drinks.
Pineapple Guesthouse offers free internet to customers plus free wi-fi throughout. There's also a laundry service and book exchange. Airport pickups are available at an extra cost.
Pineapple Guesthouse is located in Karon Plaza. It's a relatively quiet area, especially in low season, but with a number of bars, restaurants and shops in the vicinity there's plenty to keep visitors occupied. Karon Beach is just four or five minutes walk. It's a beautiful stretch of coastline though it can be busy in high season. You are also within walking distance of Kata and close enough to Patong for an exciting night out.
Steve and Lek, your English and Thai hosts, are very knowledgeable about travel within the area and are happy to help in whatever way possible. The staff are all very friendly and a that helps to create the friendly, sociable atmosphere at Pineapple.
