CC`s Hideaway Hotel (Formerly CC Blooms) Phuket
The name of the hotel was CC Blooms, which came from the Bette Midler character in the movie "Beaches" (I must say I have never seen it, but might just try to find it at the local video shop now...). Beaches seems to be a very popular movie with gay people, and indeed CC Blooms was promoted as a gay, or "gay friendly" hotel. My customer said he had met the owner, a gay American man and maybe the "gayness" of the hotel gives it the unique style. Of course you don't have to be gay to stay here. Read the reviews on Agoda (see link below) - the hotel is rated very highly by just about everyone. The hotel website does not seem to mention being gay friendly now, whatever that means anyway! The name changed in 2012 to CC's Hideaway.
It's nice to hear of a different kind of place to stay in Phuket, just the kind of place that Jamie's Phuket is looking for, something off the beaten track, a hotel with a bit of character.
Most of the rooms do have a sea view, just the sea is not right out of the window. The hills above Karon are very scenic and very... what's the word... green... jungly. All rooms also have satellite TV, a huge king size bed, high speed internet access and also a small kitchen.
CC Bloom (apparently) in the movie Beaches was searching for that perfect time and place.... I don't mean to be corny but ... this could be it!
