CC’s Hideaway Hotel: Your Homo-hideaway in Thailand!

Since 2010, CCs Hideaway has been awarded the Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor and is currently ranked #8 of 72 hotels in Karon.  All its staff, owners and management team are committed to providing an excellent service to its guests.  But really most of this just comes down to how wonderful and warm their staff is.

The CCs Experience


As per its website:
CCs is a 42 room luxury full service hotel nestled in the lush hills of Karon overlooking the Andaman Sea and provides easy access to 3 of Phukets finest beaches: Kata Noi, Kata and Karon.  CCs Hideaway offers a unique combination of breathtaking views and modern accommodations infused with traditional and authentic Thai furnishings. 

More simply, CCs is an artsy oasis for guests seeking a relaxing holiday. Enjoy your excursions in Phuket and its surrounding islands and then come back each day to the tranquility that CCs provides.  For those looking to have health conscious holidays, they offer Yoga retreats and wellness holiday packages and they have a restaurant that offers an extensive menu of Western and Thai food.  

Phuket as delivered by CCs


CCs offers transportation and concierge services to help you to experience the things you choose to.  Whether it is a visit to a traditional outdoor night market, the Big Buddha, a National Park or a diving excursion, they can help.  Their concierges try out the excursions they sell, so over the years they have carefully sifted through the operators that provide quality and safe services for a good value.

Meet some of the CCs Team in Los Angeles?


Reaching out beyond Phuket, its management team will be venturing out to West Hollywood, Los Angeles California to promote CCs at the Global LGBT Travel Show on April 11 from 12:00 to 4:30 pm at the West Hollywood Park (647 N San Vicente Blvd).  Free admission. 

CCs Environmental Awareness


They are also very environmentally responsible. They have a water catchment system to collect rainwater to reduce the burden on the ever diminishing water table.  They have solar water heaters that conserve the amount of electricity used. They have energy efficient light bulbs, a salt water swimming pool and a water management system that recycles and cleans shower water (white water) for re-use in the toilets.  And of course, they are always working to improve things and hope to have a solar system that generates much of their electricity over the next two years.

Community Participation


There is a lot to be said about what they do besides supporting the LGBT community.  There was a great tsunami that devastated parts of Asia in December 26, 2004 and it was featured in the movie The Impossible.  CCs has worked to support the work of a local expat filmmaker Mike Thomas.  He made a much earlier documentary version of the The Impossible called Living with the Tiger and recently did a 10 year follow-up documentary on some of the families in fishing villages impacted called Silent Watershttp://www.silentwatersthemovie.com  CCs held the world premier for this film.  Also related to the Tsunami they actively support an organization that helped looked after area dogs that were displaced as a result. 

Now go have a look at CCs for yourself!
