Andaman Embrace Resort & Spa
Travel Blogs from Patong
Arriving in Patong Beach on Phuket it was crowded, seemed packed with tourists, glad to get to our hotel which was the Club Andaman. Sad to see that shops have been built where the lovely gardens down to the beach road used to be. Patong Beach and elsewhere on Phuket was much busier than normal for this time of the year. There seem to be more bars …
We had stayed years ago at the Club Andaman Phuket in Patong Beach, I was upset to see that the lovely large gardens beyond the swimming pool at the Club Andaman were no longer there, replaced by buildings with shops. Our room was in the main building, service was alright and the room seemed very similar to when we had been to the Club Andaman …
... boiling hot, tired, been conned by a bus driver so I ended up paying 5 times the right amount for the bus. Can't cross the road when I get here because the roads are ram-packed. The hostel was lovely though, fell in love with it the second I saw it.
Then an english guy was like yeah don't worry we'll come join you later for drinks you won't be alone (could see I was absolutely pooing myself over the city) and I was like ok sweet we have that sorted then. So he ...

At this point in our journey we have decided to stay in Phuket and we started to look for a house to rent. After a bit of searching (this part wasn't fun because it is difficult ...
This is the day of the Siam Safari, which was a lot more fun than I expected. At first I didn't want to go because I thought it would be like the other excursions we went on in the past. We actually went on a long elephant trek and I rode with Brady. Our elephant trainer was really cool and made us take a picture of Brady and I kissing together. After we rode the elephants we fed them baskets of fruit! They loved it and our elephant was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Andaman Embrace Resort & Spa Patong
It is not a resort, it is a Heaven !!
My wife and I stayed there 4 nights, it was (litrally) a natural reserve !! It has a huge green field with a pond in the middle. The restaurant is beside that area and open to it (to the extent where you see birds drinking from the milk on your table), and the two pools and the cottages are surrounding this area too.
Our room was a balcony room on the 5th floor with a spectacular view, it was spacious and clean. All staff were friendly, with a basic English. They try there best to help even without a tip, but when ever they can't, they don't have anything called the extra mile even with a tip.
In Ordnung, aber es gibt bessere Hotels in Patong
Ich war in einem kleinen Bungalow, der war recht nett, entsprach aber nicht meinen Erwartungen. Es war sauber aber die Einrichtung und die Dekoration waren ziemlich gewöhnlich. In der Preisklasse kann man auch ein besseres Hotel finden. Das Personal war freundlich und hilfsbereit - es ist schließlich Thailand. Das Grundstück ist wunderbar. Das Hotel berechnet einem eine lästige "Joinder" Gebühr. Das Fitness-Center ist etwas lachhaft.
Great Hotel, We were booked into a cottage and when we garrived there we were not happy with the first cottage they showed us, only because the porch area was only a few feet from the cottages in front of us, no air flow, very cramped.
Where's the world renown thai hospitality? not at club andaman
cross the road and you're at the beach, walk down the street and there's a host of seafood eateries so location is good. size of their andaman room is decent with a huge bed emperor size bed. clean room with competent housekeeping. however, on the whole, it's a nondescript resort with indifferent service that relies on tourists who book with tour agencies on packages. they won't be getting return visit from me. they can do better. so can we.
We travelled from London, as a young professional couple.
After extensive research through the internet, and this fine search model..TripAdvisor. I setteled on Club Andamon Beach Resort for a 14 day stay. After the very long trip from Australia and spending 2 hectic days in Bangkok, I arrived at Club Andamon - tired and ready to relax. Booking in at Reception was an easy process, with the staff making great effort to have themselves understood in their lilting English. I had booked ahead a 'balcony' room', on account of liking my privacey, when escorted to my room - one look through the doorway sent me into purring raptures, here was the most glorious gardens, the Andaman Sea & Patong Beach spread out in front of me, from the 6th floor. What a great start! I was in Phuket to relax from a busy, manic work schedule. I didn't come to see Elephants, monkeys or transvestites. I had come to rest, loll in the sun, eat,walk and generally please myself! Cannot speak highly enough about this truely lovely hotel, staff remember your face from day one (if you care to make that first impression with a smile) and take the time to wave, smile and share a few words whever they can.The hotel seemed to cater for a cast of thousands... but we all never seemed to trip over ourselves, spent most mornings lolling about the pool, which only ever seemed to attract a handful of visitors.Early morning beach walks a necessity as the hotel is straight across the road from Patong Beach - Sunsets available from your own window... no need to go out for more than one. Great Hotel - Great Holiday!
All right but there is better in Patong
I stayed in a little bungalow which was cute but fell short of my expectations. It was clean but the furniture and decorations was quite ordinary. You can find better in the same price range. Staff was friendly and helpful -- this is Thailand after all! Grounds are beautiful. The hotel charges an annoying joinder fee. The gym is a bit of a joke.
We have travelled extensively through the world and Club Andaman Beach Resort would have to rate all round as the best resort we have ever stayed in. We spent only a week there Sept. 04 and were determined to return for a longer stay.
We opted for a garden bungalow with B&B.
Right on the beach, nice but nothing special
I had a "bungalow" which was clean and okay, nothing fancy though, and 5 other bungalows were attached, not standing alone. I booked the hotels because it had two nice pools and it was next to the beach, right across the street. Breakfast buffet is huge and if you are staying in a hotel room in the main house you have the impression you are staying in a city hotel, nice big lobby. Many Japanese tourists. Would probably not go back because the guest houses i have seen where much cheaper and also had everything I would need. Now after the big sea quake I doubt that the hotel is still operating. No idea.
