Monkey Mountain and Tham Suwan Hua Temple Tour - Aleenta Phuket Resort & Spa

Monkey Mountain and Tham Suwan Kuha Temple Tour

High on a majestic mountain, after a scenic 30-minute drive past limestone cliffs and symmetrical rows of slender rubber trees, sits Tham Suwan Kuha Temple. What makes this temple so unique is that it is nestled within a large natural cave that it is also home to a family of monkeys.

At the entrance of the cave is a chedi that looks similar to the famous Wat Arun in Bangkok. However, it is what is inside that offers the main attraction – an enormous gold reclining Buddha that is both majestic and timeless. The cave also has several standing Buddha figures, important religious items, shrines and stupas that can be visited via a series of staircases and paths snaking around stalagmites and other rock formations within the cave.

Just outside the temple monkeys eagerly wait for tasty treats. It is possible to buy food for the monkeys from several vendors that have set up shop near the temple. Many vendors also sell cold drinks, fresh fruit, and Thai snacks for visitors to enjoy.

This was my 6th time in Aleenta Phuket and I have to say - the hotel gets better and better with every stay. After checking in relaxation begins. For me it is a really lovely location with a special spirit. The architecture of the buildings are phenomenal. The design is one of the best I’ve ever seen. And the most impressive thing in this hotel is the breakfast. For me as a world champion in fitness you will never find such a health and delicious breakfast in another hotel all over the world. Many thanks to the whole staff. It was again an amazing stay. We will come back soon.

We had our wedding in Aleenta Phuket, and we love how beautiful this place is. Our family and friends had a good time here at this private beach all to ourselves, celebrating our union. The team at the resort rendered their assistance to us whenever we needed, they aced the whole experience and we just wanted to do a shout out to the resort team (the wedding team, the GM, the resort manager, the housekeeping team, our Satis butlers, the chefs and kitchen team, and everyone else that had chipped in their effort to make our wedding day a great one!) that we love love love you all. Thank you for making it a great success!

Probably the best hotel we ever visited. Everything was perfect: our suite was beautiful, all installations are pleasant and the two restaurants are really good. The staff is very nice. We had the feeling to be almost always alone. Thank you for these great vacations. We really recommend Aleenta Phuket.

We held our wedding at Aleenta / Akyra / Grand Villa Satis in March 2019 and it truly was the most incredible week of our lives. Our week-long celebration saw us stay at Aleenta for the first few nights, followed by Grand Villa Satis for the second half of the week. Our guests stayed at both Aleenta and Akyra resorts. We couldn't fault anything. The resorts were perfect, as was the villa. All of our wedding celebrations and events ran smoothly, and the events team (huge shout out to Bow, Aleenta's wedding planner) exceeded our expectations. Everything, from our spa treatments, to the delicious food, the coordination of our 64 guests, the fantastic accommodation (and very comfy beds), through to the beauty and tranquility of Natai Beach, was simply perfect. We cannot wait to visit again.
