Serenity Resort & Residences and our sister hotel the Friendship Beach Resort were happy to welcome the KTA Asian freestyle champs & Asia Pacific Hydrofoil series to our resorts from December 12-15.

The Phuket Hotel Association Member hotels, including Serenity Resort & Residences Phuket this year came together to reduce the usage of plastic bottles as part of a series of environmental initiatives to reduce plastic waste on the beautiful island of Phuket. In the first year, member hotels were able to save 4.4 million plastic bottles, with all members moving away from plastic water bottles and instead opting for glass bottles.
The saving of 4.4 million bottles per year equates to an astounding 12,054 bottles per day, a 51% reduction! It is important to us and to other member hotels of the Phuket Hotel Association to reduce our environmental impact and to keep Phuket, the beautiful place to visit that it is.
Moving forward, in the coming months and years, as part of the Phuket Hotel Association, our team, led by our General Manager, Urs, will continue to push for envorinmental intiatives and strive to reduce our plastic waste.
After 4 years of construction and traffic mayhem, the new underpass road at the 5-road Chalong circle intersection has finally opened on 1 June 2019!
This main traffic artery connects the Rawai and Nai Harn area with the rest of Phuket island and is essential for the movement of traffic to and from this part of the island.
The news come as a huge relief for the hotels, businesses and local residents operating and living in our area.
Our part of Phuket Island can now be reached easily once again and without a 20 plus minutes wait in the notorious traffic jam at the circle.
The modern underpass road/tunnel is about 500 meters long and connects Rawai with ChaoFah West Road leading up to Central Department store and Phuket International Airport.
The tunnel is very well lit and looks safe to drive through as you can discover in the video published together with this blog post.
We look forward to welcoming more tourists and local residents in Rawai and Nai Harn to experience this beautiful and authentic part of Phuket Island, where people come to relax and escape from the busy tourist centres located on the West Coast of Phuket Island.
Rawai and Nai Harn offer you some of the best beaches in Phuket and large choice of local Thai and seafood restaurants run by families since generations.
We are also home to some of the finest hotels and dining venues catering for those looking for a more refined environment and taste.
