Travel Blogs from Patong
Arrival was late due to two Virgin flight delays, good reason - the ash cloud from Java Indonesia's Volcano! Arrived safely and nice to have been given an upgrade. Now 11pm and I'm not tired enough to sleep so,,, just relaxing wi a Green Tea and playing on my iPad for a few minutes. Looking forward to some pampering tomorrow and a bit of shopping ;)
Had 2 pool access rooms this time which was wonderful (the kids loved that).
Fantasea was great, the story told was incredible with acrobats, animals, aerial dancers (wow) and a buffet dinner as well. It is a bit expensive but it is an experience which people should have.
Went to the usual Phuket attractions, shooting, ATV's etc.
Will be back again...........
How nice is the Burasari, the people were lovely, food great and the room was lovely (on the 2nd floor).
We went to the usual tourist places in Phuket, zoo, snake farm, elephant rides, gun club etc.
Went to a few restaurants which were out of the way.
Love, love , love Thailand. Will be back!!!
We arrived at our hotel and decided to check out the pool bar, well it would be rude not to since it was happy hour (14:00 – 20:00) two for the price of one on cocktails. After a few cocktails, some food from the BBQ and a shower, it was time to check out the much talked about Bangla Road.
A great night …
Our trip to Thailand was truly unforgettable. Good friends, a continual flow of singas and cocktails and one of the most moving weddings you could imagine.
It's not often that you get to spend a big chunk of time with a group of friends and the novelty of this was not lost on us. The romantic setting of Phuket, the gentle natured Thai people, …

Historical Traveler Reviews Burasari Resort Patong
We stayed at the Burasari for 8 nights in Nov/Dec, 2005. The hotel is in a great position, and is only a 2 minute walk to patong beach and the shops. The breakfast is a must everyday! The restaurant has fairly priced meals and they alternate from Thai to Eupopean to Italian, so they cover all different appertites.
We stayed at the Burasari for 8 nights and loved every minute of it!
Excellent value, location, service
I spent four nights at the Burasari and was very pleased indeed. The room was good-sized, very pleasant and spotlessly clean, with a safe and good amenities. The location in Patong was excellent, just a few minutes walk from the beach and about halfway between two main shopping strips.
Staff was very accomodating and helpful, and the breakfast was plentiful and tasty.
Burasari offered five-star service at a budget price, and I'd stay here again.
We had spent the previous three nights in Bangkok staying in the Ambassador Hotel (see review) before flying to Phuket for the final three nights of our week in Thailand during September. The break had been organised by Thai Airways, who also booked the hotels and transfers and the price, service and the quality of what they provided were all excellent.
The Burasari Resort is exceptionally beautiful once you walk into the resort through its small unassuming entrance. The rooms are very tastefully furnished, though space might be at a premium since the resort itself is located on a very small plot of land. Sadly, there is no dedicated spa facility within the hotel, though you can still get a massage service in your own room.
This is a lovely hotel in the middle of Patong. A 5 minute to the beach, bars or shops. It's tucked away so you don't have to worry about noise. The rooms are simple, but elegant. Rooms have huge beds. We booked a standard room, which was quite nice. Small bathroom. Shower/tub and a window that links the bathroom to the bedroom. Small balcony, but nice so you can dry your towels or wetsuit on it. From the outside, the pricer rooms seem to have larger balconies. Some rooms have direct pool access. With steps into the pool from your room.
We just came back from Phuket. Spent 2 nights at Burasari.... 25 Aug-27 Aug. Great experience. This hotel is in the middle of everything. Great location. Near the beach, near shops, eating places. And for !800Bht a night, this place is great. The room is clean and new. We plan to stay at Patong for 2 nights so as to soak up all the activities on the beach and then move to Twinpalms at Surin Beach for 1 quiet night.
My girlfriend and I spent two nights at the Burasari from July 26-28 and had an unbelievable time. The staff was friendly and wonderful. The front desk was really helpful when we requested to move rooms. The free breakfast had a wide variety of food. Its only a 1 min walk to Patong Beach (although Kata Beach and Phansi Beach are nicer, by way of taxi). The rooms are nice and the ambience is great for couples.
An Oasis in the middle of it all
We stayed in the Burasari for 10 nights in December 2004, in room 1211, on our honeymoon. We loved the ambiance - it was tucked away in a right of way of a side street, 5 minutes walk (if that) to the Southern End of Patong Beach. The rooms were not large (we had a Garden View room, that was upgraded to a Pool View room) but they were well appointed, and the decorations very modern although very Thai. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the pool was fantastic - especially with the poolside service during Happy Hour. The breakfast buffet was very good, especially impressed with having eggs cooked to your order (choice of style, fillings...etc), and was a very nice way to wake up each day. I would stay there again.
