Most trainees come to Thailand for adventure, so they are quite happy to find their own transport from the airport to Patong Beach and look around for suitable accommodation for the four weeks of teacher training. We even help out by providing information on airport transfers and some accommodation recommendations here on the website.
But that is not for everyone and many people are travelling to Asia for the first time and want a little help. We will take care of everything for you when you book one of our Premium Packages. Our driver can meet you at Phuket airport or bus station at the appointed time and transfer you to a pre-booked accommodation, so you do not need to worry about anything. Just turn up and enjoy!
We offers three great choices for safe, comfortable and convenient accommodation. All options are located within 1km (.62 mi) of the training center and include Wi-fi, an en suite toilet (private bathroom) air conditioning and a refrigerator.
Monthly rates range from 6,500 to 9,500 baht. That’s less than US$ 275 for the month even with the most expensive standard option. Rates are for single or dual occupancy so if you share the course with a friend you won’t pay any extra fees. Depending on the option, weekly linen changes and room cleaning is included.
If you’re looking for more luxurious accommodation, we can help you find a good hotel in the area.
PHUKET CENTER APARTMENTS
These apartments are located in the center of Phuket Town, hidden from the main road. There are innumerable dining and entertainment options within walking distance and there’s a super market just across the street. It is our most popular housing option.
Managed and owned by Phuket’s most welcoming people, Sakul House makes you feel at home. The owners are glad to show trainees all the sights and events Phuket has to offer. Rooms are limited and fill up quickly so book as soon as you can.
As expected of Thailand, Phuket Town and the areas around offer more food stalls, cafes and restaurants than you can possibly visit. There are also many Western food outlets as well. Phuket Town has quite a few markets and grocery stores where you can stop by and buy snacks and drinks to bring back to your room.
The King’s Park is also close, you can enjoy a large area for recreation, people watching, chilling out or working out. It has a large pond with two running tracks that go around the park. It contains basketball and badminton courts, as well as small soccer/football fields. It also has some organized aerobics sessions in the early evening.
Thai clubs and western style pubs can be found around the city and you’re never too far away from the hustle and bustle. You will not find the same action as Phuket’s main tourist city of Patong, but that’s why so many long-term expats choose to stay in Phuket rather than in Patong and along the West Coast.
There are also quite a few undertaking that can be done in and around Phuket Town. There are two weekend markets, a fresh market, walking tours, parks, sports facilities, a few local view points and plenty of natural scenery.
From Phuket, you can venture off to any one of their lovely beaches. Sun, sand and surf is definitely one of Phuket’s main attractions.
