I've started writing this at Sydney Airport, 9.15 am 1st of April, April Fools Day. Genelle, Mark and I are waiting for Dale and Pauline to arrive, they flew Thai via Bangkok and we flew Singapore via Singapore. For most of the trip from Phuket I've had a headache from the cold and sitting …
Day 9 - 28/3/2024 Thailand - the wind down
Surprise surprise, as Gommer Pyle used to say, its hot again today, but the forecast says a storm for Phuket tonight, Friday Night (A little in joke - the muay thai boxing trucks trawl the streets with their loud speakers On high - in dramatic tones - with emotion - saying "Friday night, tonight, muay …
One hundred days ago Ivan and Vlad embarked on their Great Adventure. And now we are enjoying our last day, number 101, in the Aussie Bar watching the Melbourne Cup. We are not looking forward for it all ending, but we are looking forward to seeing everyone back home again. There's not a lot to tell from the last three days in Patong. Saturday was …
... was packed with people all trying to get a prime spot for some sunbathing.
As we had not put any cream on we took a seat on the floor of the captains’ cabin hoping that would be ok and they crew wouldn’t evict us!
There was slightly less air moving around but at least we did not get burned to death.
We were laughing at the captain who, after setting off pretty quickly, sat back in his old seat and started ...

The reception was efficient and catered to our request to have our rooms side by side. The rooms were poolside and lived up to expectation, howver you had to be early some days to get a lounge by the water. One issue we found was a group of fellow Australians, mainly young, every afternoon, took over the pool playing volleyball, throwing footbals, jumping and dowing bombs from the walls around the pool. They should had been pulled up by the staff as it was distracting and impacted on other guests staying that side of the hotel.
Poolside service by "jump" was terrific.
This is ideally located and nearvthe action but the rooms are very quiet.

Historical Traveler Reviews Banthai Beach Resort & Spa Patong
Location, Location ,Location!
If you have to stay in Patong...
Then the Banthai Beach Resort is a good choice! Not cheap but the location is superb! The gym is clean and certainly adequate, the service good and overall I have little to complain about...Apart from that is, a couple of Security Guards who resembled "jobsworth's" late one evening. Overall, proberbly a good safe choice right in the middle of Patong.
It's worth mentioning, I had booked at the Amari Coral Beach but no one told me about the Hill or the walk! My fault! I had expected something similar to Samui, it was not! Reviews are useful but there is no substitute for being there and seeing what it's really like.
P.S. Why not try Kata or Karon, more fun, less sleaze, more bang for your buck, if you know what I mean!
I stayed at banthai with two other friends in January 2006 for 10 nights it was a very very good place. had no hassels at all staff were very friendly would recommend this resort to anyone looking for a great holiday to thailand close to everything .
Banthai Resort - Amazing Patong Secret
The Banthai Resort is the most amazing place to stay in Patong.
Our family of 5 just finished a holiday at the Banthai, and can't believe what great value it is.
It's a brand new refurbished contemporary property with modern rooms, and certainly has a boutique hotel feel to it.
The Banthai has 2 huge pools and every room has a balcony overlooking the pool. There are poolside bars, several restaurants, and 2 bars on the beach road.
However the beauty of the Banthai is that the hotel complex is set well back from the beach so there is no noise - it's very peaceful.
Yet the shopping and best Patong restaurants are within minutes of the Banthai. (Sabia Sabai, Sweet, Roma, S&G etc)
We had 2 standard rooms which were perfect on the first floor overlooking the pool. The standard rooms are the same size as the superior rooms, which are on ground level right by the pool.
Breakfast is good, and our meal at the Port Bar in front of the 9pm live band was good value.
I thought the Kumala Pantai in Bali was an outstanding hotel in the mid-range area, but this is even better.
Thanks to the staff at the Banthai who helped us have the best holiday ever, and congratulations on rebuilding and developing a class property which is affordable.
Banthai is the palce to be
Where to begin...this is an absolutley amazing resort!!! I loved it and would go back in a heart beat...wonderful location...walking distance to all clubs! I cant say enough wonderful things about this resort...this place is a must!! The peolpe are terrrific, you wont find better service in Phuket.
The Best Hotel In The Heart Of Patong - Excellent
This hotel was just the best, I have been to Phuket 5 times and i have stayed at the Patong Beach Hotel, Patong Merlin Hotel, Horizon Beach Hotel & the Patong Beach Resort, and Hands down this hotel is the best out of all of them.... The rooms are big, clean & Very modern, The Pool has two swim up bars, your rooms are cleaned twice a day and in the evening they come to turn down your bed, Also leather day sofa's on the balcony and also leather day lounge in room, The hotel also has a Day Spa, Which we went to and it was just Bliss, If you are going to Phuket, I would not look past this hotel..., Just the Best
We stayed here in November 2004, before the tsunami...but this is a fantastic property! Very beautiful rooms done in a clean, modern style...white with dark wood. Pools are lovely as well, and what a great location! Right across the street from the beach, though the property is set back from the street so there's no traffic noise.
Really loved our stay here...can't remember what we paid because we booked a pretty cheap package from Hong Kong that included breakfast too...which is an awesome buffet.
I've checked out the website for the newly refurbished hotel post-tsunami and it looks just as fabulous, plus they have a spa now!!
Highly recommend this place.
Truely amazing.....best pool ever
I was fortunate to stay at this hotel just before the Tsunami...and i have to say this hotel was truely magnificant. The room decor was beautiful...rooms extremely clean and every evening a Thai Lily was placed on the pillow case. The pool was truely unreal...there was two pools and they were the entire length of the hotel....and trust me that is long. The pool was very well kept ...always plenty of space and what was the best was the jacuzzi style sun loungers in the pool...yes in the pool. I would definitely go back to this hotel. The location was perfect across Patong beach and only a mere 10 min walk from all the nightlife..This hotel is truely one of Patongs well kept sercrets...i have never seen it featured in a brochure...but was recommended it by my travel agent. Best holiday in Thailand without a doubt.
Clean, Beautiful, Excellent Service, - Highly Recommended
Was recommended to it by the travel agent, always fully booked. Conveniently very near to Patong beach. Good breakfast. Clean room with excellent pool view, some rooms on ground floor have balcony directly to the pool, imagine just jump out of your balcony to the pool!
When we arrived, we were handed wet towels and welcome drink, sat at the reception lounge and being checked in without having to queue. Great service at mere 1400Baht!
Room was very clean n pleasant, with a day bed. Bathroom also very clean. Sad to hear tsunami hit it but this means new rooms! Definitely will go again.
Excellent resort & location
From lobby to room is very beutifully designed. The rooms were very well designed and clean unlike many other resorts in Patong i've stayed in. They also have one of the nicest pool i've ever seen. The location is also the best for those who wants to do everything in Patong. Centrally located in Patong and the beach in just aross the road. This is one of the best resort i've ever stayed in and definately the best value for money too.
