Having taken over the Thai cooking class Kata, chef VJ and chef Nisha will be working together. They will provide a wide variety of dishes. Thai cooking will be very simple and taught in very easy steps, so it would be easier for you to cook back at home. At Phuket Thai Cooking, you are offered a hands-on cooking course of Thai traditional dishes.

After a fun and enjoyable hour preparing a Thai meal, you will get to enjoy it among a small group, in a friendly environment. The Shades Phuket likes to think they offer the best Thai cooking class in the area and they would love to show you why. Unlike other schools, which try to fill up their classes with as many students as possible and where you can potentially feel lost, they will try to keep 2 to 6 students in a class so that everyone gets to interact with the activity.

The Thai cooking class will happen everyday from 10:30 to 12:30. You will enjoy an introduction to Thai ingredients and herbs and be given an easy to follow color recipe book at your own cooking station. In this class, you will have the opportunity to learn how to cook three dishes and curry paste. You will also sample your own cooking. Free round transportation from Kata, Patong, and Karon is also available for you to explore the place yourself.

Your holiday will take place in Patong, Phuket, Thailand. Patong is Phuket island’s most developed tourist destination, with a wide range of activities within a close proximity of 3 kilometers. It is the perfect spot for those seeking fun and sun.

  • Review by A traveler from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

    "Stay 1 night just to experience the hotel near the Patong Beach.Great for a good night sleep but need to improve the water heater and at least a stool or a chair in the room."

    "Mini bar is pack and toiletries are just towels, bath foam and a little soap. Nothing else. Air Conditioning I think needs servicing. But among all, it is compensated by the location. Very very short walk, you at Patong beach where actions and food are plentiful."

    "if you are there to explore the outside life of Phuket and not a person who wants to chill in resort, this place is for you. Only problem was to wish if they had tea and coffee sachets in room. Bathroom also is okay but needs lil more renovation. No lift, so please request for room at lower level. Availability for scooter on rent and food around is a plus point"

    "I went for a business meeting to Bangkok and then I had three days of break for the next meeting, so I headed to Phuket. This hotel was recommended to me by a friend of mine and it is simply amazing and charismatic. The best part about it is the location and the staff."

  • Review by Abhishek from Guwahati, Assam, India

    "This is a new hotel located near the beach with clean comfortable bed. The hotel has an in-room refrigerator and hot kettle for making tea. The complementary drinking water provided is good and does not have the sour taste, as some brands. The hotel provided us with tea and toast for breakfast but charged us only for the tea. The hotel is located in a lane, which is so peaceful."

    "I came here for lunch, and really enjoyed the food and service. It is a hidden gem just off Patong beach. The food was spicy and great. Their papaya salad is highly recommended. I wouldn't mind coming back here for another lunch or dinner. "

    "I have been to Phuket before, about 2 years ago. I just visited Phuket this January and it was by far the best experience. We stayed at the Shades on Patong beach and the hotel was simply commendable. It had such a cordial staff and, most importantly, the facilities and services that the hotel offers are at such reasonable prices. Highly recommended!"
