FAQ Phang Nga

Welcome to Thaweesuk – the heritage of Phang Nga town.

This house is the first cement building in Phang Nga old town. It was built over one hundred years ago with Sino-European architecture and once was the biggest grocery store in town during the tin mining boom.  The back of the house has been hotel for almost 70 years. It was left unmaintained for a long while until 5 years ago, we – the third generation of the family – decided to renovate entire property. We want to preserve its elegance, reveal the legacy of the old days, and let visitors experience the genuine Phang Nga heritage and hospitalities.  We know you have many questions, let see how we can make your stay as memorable as possible.
