Travel Blogs from Patong
After the stressful journey from Laos to Bangkok we decided to treat ourselves and fly to Phuket which was just great as the flight was only 1 hour long. We arrived in Patong without accommodation so finding a room was our first plan. My first thoughts of Patong was that it felt quite dirty and very very touristy. It was proving difficult to find a room and it was so hot carrying our bags around so Luke went off to find somewhere while I ...
... everywhere...and I mean EVERYWHERE!! As a matter of fact, we found out that most people are only able to get where they are going by walking through all of the underground tunnels and malls of every building that basically connect to each other to get anywhere! Practically every building has a mall in the bottom of it in addition to the apartment homes that the buildings are built for. This makes everything very convenient and accessible at all times. Wanna get to ...

We have read its difficult getting out of Patong anywhere on the cheap as the taxis/tuk tuks all want 1000 thai baht for a round trip and they try to encourage you to stay in the resort. However we managed to figure out the local bus that leaves every hour and did a day trip to Phuket City for 60 baht each! Was an interesting ...

Too bad really because we were having a lot of fun up till then. e think they were ringers, and ran into a local guy this morning who said, it's all part of Thailand. Yup. ended up at Fiesta restaurant for tiger prawns, delicious and papaya salad. They gave us complementary sambucas which was a nice end to the night with Creme brûlée. A lovely dinner and nIce night.

Historical Traveler Reviews Impiana Resort Patong Phuket
As two early thirthy independant travs.1M/1F we loved it. I have worked most of my career in 5 star australian resorts and knowing what they have to work with i was smiling all the way from the cool towels and rose water at check in, to the check out we thought was a day later!
My husband, myself and two friends have just arrived home from two weeks staying at the Impiana Phuket Cabana. From the minute we arrived the staff could not do enough to please us. As it was early morning, our rooms were not vacant so they gave us another room to use in the meantime. The weekly complimentary cocktail party was a great way to meet other guests. The pool area is great. Although not a large pool it is more than adequet as the beach is right there as well. We had lots of fun during the day lounging at the pool, doing the occasional shopping from the beach hawkers, and chatting to fellow guests. This would be the holiday remembered by the number of different people we met while swimming at the pool. The position of the hotel would have to be the best in Patong Beach. The beach restaurants next door were fabulous and very reasonable and the shopping just over the road. I will recommend this hotel to everyone I know who is going to be visiting Phuket.
Do you want to be spoilt?????
My husband and I stayed at the Impiana for two weeks in August and enjoyed ourselves immensely.
The staff were friendly yet very efficient, the rooms large, very comfortable and always clean.
The food in the hotel very good, beautifully displayed and reasonably priced.
The massages in the hotel were so much enjoyed -as were the facials.
Situated on the beach in Patong it was like an oasis, yet outside in close proximity to shops and entertainment.
This was our first time in Phuket but we will be returning to the Impiana very soon
Wouldn't change a thing
I stayed at the Impiana for 5 days, and could not fault a single thing. The rooms being something in a league of their own were incredible, with the biggest double bed i've seen and a traditional feel to it. It was the only hotel on the beach front so you didn't have to cross the busy road to get to the beach which was great, and the staff were friendly and reliable. Only a small hitch with check in (but we were to blame for this as check in wasn't strictly until 2pm anyway), apart from that we had a very relaxing stay and were very sad to leave. Great food, great people and a great beach! Just be aware of mozzies which were there when we were there, although probably not all seasons!
We stayed in May 2006 for a 2 nights and was nowhere near long enough. We were a little nervous prior to arrival as we struggled to find any up to date information (post tsunami) on it. We understand it had been totally rebuilt - and it was fantastic!
We'll be back!!
We have stayed at quality hotels throughout the world and this one would rate amongst the best. During our stay we checked out a number of other hotels. Some were very nice, but none could beat the Cabana for location. A few paces from our room to the beach.
The staff were nothing short of magnificent. Nothing was too much for them. Always a friendly smile. Breakfasts were excellent, relaxed overlooking the beach, eating tropical fruit.
This was our first trip to Phuket. We were a bit uncertain about where to stay. Our stay at the Cabana confirmed we couldn't have picked a better hotel. Our kids had a ball too!
Beware if you are staying there
For those who are looking at staying here, my advice is not to.
Mu husband brought me there for Valentine's Day. After eating their blueberry pancake, apple strudel & bread rolls, I got sick.
I had fever (38.8 degrees celsius), vomitting, lose of appetite & had severe dirrahoea for 3 days, I went to the toilet no less than 80 times in 3 days. I have never been so sick before.
The resort manager said he checked the food & there was nothing wrong with it. Basically, he did not think his resort has anything to do with it and thinks my sickness was from somewhere else. However, I only got sick after I woke up the next morning with body ache. BEWARE!
We stayed at the Impiana Cabana for 4 nights and it was no way long enough.
Great place to stay
I traveled to thailand in September 2004 with a group of 11 of us, with quite mixture in ages. The Cabana was a great place to stay it was not high rise building, they were all small bugelows inter nexting parths. Right on the beach, handy to the small resturants right on the beach
The Sabai beach resturant was our faviout because it was very cheap and the food was very good. The resort was also very close to the shopping being wright at our front door. There is pleanty of tour you can go on. The weather was very good for that time of the year, I think we only had one wet day in our ten days stay. The staff at the resort were out standing always with a smile on there face. this one place and country I will be returning as soon as I can.
