Little Nyonya Hotel in Phuket Town

Little Nyonya is a small but fun new hotel located on the outskirts of Phuket Town. While it is somehow modest and a little basic it combines old Phuket heritage style and affordable price. Seen from the outside, the hotel looks beautiful with a large white facade and well lit swimming pool and the Sino-Portuguese inspiration (some say Sino-Colonial but I can’t really tell which is right), the arrival place missed that inspiration.

Little Nyonya hotel consists of 3 room types, all with exaggeratedly fancy names that make them look bigger than they are: ‘Superior mansion, Deluxe Colonial (27 sq m), and Junior Suite Balcony and since the rate is relatively low, we picked the best one: a Junior Suite Balcony room. The room appeared small because of the high ceiling, and the bathtub in a tiny garden in front of the room was an interesting idea. That was until we realised that all the bedrooms located above could see you in your bathtub.

The reception is beautiful, using a lot of elements from the old Phuket era, especially those popular decorated floor tiles. Below it is the restaurant where a basic breakfast is served. The restaurant is bright and quite attractive. Of course, it is inspired by old Phuket, mostly the ample wooden counter that is found in so many shops and restaurants downtown. The staff and the lady behind the counter didn’t smile or greet us, which is very surprising in Thailand.

So even though this review seems to be less enthusiastic than any other we have ever written, Little Nyonya has some positive values. The design is bright and pleasing to the eyes, the price is very affordable, and the location is convenient if you have to work in town, but prefer not to stay downtown. The pool is more extensive than any other swimming pool for this price range the Naka Weekend market is at walking distance, and the Central Festival shopping mall is nearby. Our recommendation would be to pick rooms on a higher floor; they are smaller but probably brighter and feel less humid.

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early and never stopped until I settled in Thailand in 1994. Then for the past 27 years, my passion for photography and my natural curiosity has taken me to every corner of Thailand, jumping frequently between Bangkok and Phuket and basically everywhere I could go. I run and manage large international online travel guides.
