One of the things that I dislike when I travel is hotels exaggerating their facilities, making enticing claims. What I got when I arrived here was exactly what I was expecting. A charming hideaway, tucked away in the non-touristy parts of Phuket, with green surroundings, clean, run by a very nice family.

Highlights: - 2 min from Dragon Muay Thai - 2-3 min from YTFF, Unit 27 & Family Mart - 7 min to Titan Fitness & Chok Chai Muay Thai - 7-8 min from Tiger Muay Thai - 8-9 min from Phuket Top Team - 10 min from Rattachai Muay Thai I stumbled on Fern House Retreat on a trip to Thailand to train at Tiger for a couple months. I made the mistake of booking 2Home Retreat--a solid 20-25min walk away from Tiger, which was about the last thing I wanted to do after a 2-hour intense workout in the heat-- and boy was I glad I found this place! Tucked into an inconspicuous corner lot behind Signature Resort, right next door to Cocoville, Fern House is a lovely family-owned villa with 9 quaint rooms surrounded by lush vegetation and a pretty pool that feels like an oasis after a long day of training. Kwan, the owner, is a kind man who grew up in Chalong and is a wealth of knowledge. Fern, his daughter, helps with upkeep and is also a great resource. The rooms have all the basic creature comforts, are reasonably priced and the atmosphere is peaceful and serene. Each door has its own private entrance, patio and I've found that it's a great place to work and play. I highly recommend Fern House for anyone looking to find a little tranquility at the end of a long workout as the hectic nature of the Soi doesn't follow you home but is still a stone's throw away. It's a wonderful home base for people looking to stay in Thailand for a few months as well as it's easy to travel to/from this central location and you can trust this nice family to take care of you. Highly Recommend for solo travelers or couples looking for a peaceful spot.

Air con works well, wifi is fast, fridge works well, unlike 'The Blue Hotel', which their fridge was pooling with water. There are bars on the windows & the gate is closed at 10pm. We felt very safe at all times. Walking distance to unit 27, tiger, Muay Thai & Titans gym. Very Close to nommy frozen yogurt. Next door to Cocoville. Tip: Go to 'Tony's' for the cheapest Thai meals. Mosquitoes were not a problem. The pool was clean and large with some shade and sunny spots for sun baking or laying in the shade during the day. Shower pressure was fine, with instant, continuous hot water. Bathroom clean. Able to flush toilet paper down, instead of binning it. Outdoor kitchen was great, but we never used it. Birds sounded lovely in the morning and no loud street noise or noise complaints. Very quiet. No excessive bugs & no pests. Arriving in Chalong we were staying in another hotel, 'The Blue Hotel'. We first saw Fern House online, also on trip advisor & checked out the photos for both, 'The Blue' & 'Fern House'. From this, even with great reviews we were a little hesitant about Fern House & so ended up booking The Blue. After seeing Fern house retreat on arrival in Chalong, we decided to move. The atmosphere, the staff and the 12 cats were friendly and inviting. Fern house retreat is just so quiet and relaxing with the grounds and the pool are lovely to just stare out into during some down time. My wife was worried about Mosquitos at fern house, especially near the pool. We can safely say we had no problems at Fern House with Mosquitos. We had the pool all to ourself every single time. It was only a few steps from our room & even though 4 other rooms were occupied during our stay we didn't not hear them or nearly see them for the duration. *only downer. (Which didn't effect us anyways) There is a lock box but is is not fixed to the ground and it has a small pad lock on it that could be easily cut. Unlike a actual safe that has a passcode, is hidden in a cupboard and is bolted to the ground. This is the only thing we found useless. If a thief was to break and enter they could just pick the wooden lock box up and walk out, knowing it must contain your most valuable items. Next time we will be booking here 100%

It's my forth stay at the Fern House in the past two years and it never disappoints! I stayed at the "new improved" Room 5 this time and loving the renovated room. It's a very cozy and quiet place and great if you're there for training (like everyone else at Soi Taied - locals refer the street as "fighters street"). The owner couple is lovely and accommodating and love cats! They have a dozen cats and they have all been vaccinated and friendly. They roam around the property and it's just awesome to hang out with cats whilst you're chilling at your place.

The room was really nice and spacious. Felt like getting back to nature, earthy and cool as there were trees, ferns, shrubs etc. Extremely good value and superb hosts. Good food and juices available nearby.

I spent 7 very enjoyable months living at Fern House and it became a real home away from home for me. The rooms are generously sized with tasteful and cosy interiors, satellite TV and large fridge. Beds are big and super comfortable, with duvets. Showers are powerful and heated. The air con units are modern and quiet. Rooms are cleaned twice weekly and a laundry service is provided on site. The location is spot on; at the bottom of a small side road, (next door to Cocoville) right in the middle of Soi Taead. As such you are close to all the shops, restaurants and gyms but it is also very peaceful and quiet, day or night - great for a good nights sleep or afternoon power naps. The property sits within a natural surrounding full of trees and wildlife. The owners, Kwan and Koi, take great care in the grounds, providing a beautiful oasis that is perfect for relaxing. The swimming pool is great for cooling off on hot days and there is also an outdoor kitchen and eating area that can be used to make tea / coffee, with a blender for protein shakes. Thanya, the Manager of Fern House works hard to ensure a great customer experience and is always available to offer advice about the local surrounding and services. On top of that, Thanya is one of the nicest and most genuine people you will ever meet! I will definitely return to stay at Fern house and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay on Soi Taead

I stayed at Fern House for a little over a month while training at Tiger Muay Thai. I was told by others who had been to Tiger not to stay at the camp and I am very pleased that I made the decision to stay elsewhere. During my time there I was able to see several of the other places that friends were staying out and I did not find anything that compared to the value of Fern House. I got to Fern House at 2am upon arrival and the staff was up and ready to greet me which I found very kind. The room I stayed in was very large, well-appointed and clean. Flat screen TV, desk, chair, safe with lock, large bed, plenty of bench space and a place to hang clothes, fridge with freezer, moving towel rack so that you can dry your hand wraps or hang clothes, patio furniture, aircon w/remote, very clean and modern bathroom. The grounds are outstanding...beautifully landscaped, they are a haven for butterflies, cute lizards, frogs, squirrels and even some beautiful birds. It's very tranquil and zen. The pool is also very beautiful and sits under tall, shady trees. It is very clean, just like the rooms and the grounds. There is a beautiful, outdoor kitchen if you want to cook. Lots of books to borrow and a communal computer. As I mentioned earlier the staff/owners are very nice people and are extremely helpful whenever you need anything...they all speak great English as well. The laundry service is well-priced and everything comes back smelling fresh and perfectly folded. There was nothing better than coming home from a day of training to a freshly cleaned room and clean laundry waiting for you! They also sell bottled water which is nice because it's a chore to lug bottles from the store. My friends staying at other places had horror stories about ant invasions, aircon going down, springs poking through mattresses, etc...none of which I had to deal with during my stay at Fern House. It is conveniently located down the middle of the road...half way between Tiger Muay Thai and Phuket Top Team and right next door to Dragon Muay Thai. This means it's also right in the middle of all of the restaurants and nothing is too far a walk. You are surrounded by restaurants that it's difficult to choose where to go sometimes. There is a travel booking place across the street, as well as a convenience store, a pharmacy and an ATM. I never really found too many reasons to leave the street other than to go to the beach. I highly recommend going to the botanical gardens right down the road...they are very beautiful. Oh...one other thing I liked is that they have locked gates that they close at night (all guests have their own key). Although it's very safe in this area, I felt an extra level of comfort with the gates being locked at night. I hope they have room for me during my next visit!!

The Fern is conveniently located near all the training camps but yet tucked in from the main road so it's very quiet. The place is clean. Great staff and made me feel very much at home. There are many places around the area at the same price range but The Fern definitely have the most to offer.

This is a superbly charming place to stay in the heart of Soi Tad-ied it is a short walk to any of the gyms on the street which is also filled with eating places. The rooms are very pretty themselves and each one is different but freshly furnished (as far as wooden and concrete looks go) with a flat screen Tv, Aircon and fridge. The owners and lady that runs the place go out of their way to make you feel welcome and at ease. The house itself is always clean, with beautiful plants, trees and flowers all round making for stunning scenery, the pool is a blessing in the heat which also has jets.. if you want a tranquil, peaceful and pleasant stay in a real pretty and safe place then this is for you.
