Nous avons finalement décider d'entrer en Thaïlande par la voie des airs, car le trajet en bus ou en train prenait plus d'un jour et nous étions assez fatigués des longs transports. Nous sommes donc arrivés en avion puis nous avons attendu pour le minibus qui nous amène à l'hôtel. Attente assez longue, mais …

Historical Traveler Reviews Club Bamboo Boutique Resort and Spa Patong
Great staff. Upon arrival, we had a concierge who briefed us on the hotel facilities and entertainment options in Phuket. Room is clean, bright and working.
Wished the cafe is bigger and offers a international breakfast buffet.
Getting to Patong Beach is easy via the in-house shuttle service or tuk-tuk (100 baht).
I booked based on the pics as no reviews were available. I also figured that for what they were charging it would be nice.
We liked what we saw on the hotel's website and hence booked 3 nights at Club Bamboo in Patong. Unfortunately the place didn't even come close to living up to what we saw on the website.
We stayed at the Club Bamboo some time back for around 10 days. My family where flying in from Europe and Australia to meet in Phuket and I selected this as a straight but gay friendly hotel. My parents booked one of the two penthouse suites, my brother and his wife booked a pool side bungalow as did my partner and I. On arrival at the hotel the staff were very sweet and attentive and you find that the lobby is open air. The general look of the lobby is tired and it is not what it appeared on the website but then again it is only a lobby. We had many bags and were expecting a lift which there are none. My parents had to go about 30-35 steps up to get to the penthouse suite and we had to go about 80-90 steps down to get to the poolside bungalows. Luckily the staff carry all your bags as Phuket can be very hot.
My husband and I are currently touring South East Asia and decided to stay at Club Bamboo in Phuket for a bit of R and R. It is a cosy wee resort with a nice pool and small restaurant facility set into the hillside. There are a lot of stairs - just getting around the resort is a miniature workout! The bungalow rooms are nice but in need of updating.
There are some good points to this hotel. It's up and out of the worst of the madness in Patong, yet anything you might want to get to is easily accessible (just a 100 baht tuk tuk ride). The staff is wonderful, truly the most affable and welcoming hotel staff I've ever dealt with.
But the room and the grounds leave a lot to be desired. The hotel looked frayed around the edges, the public spaces weren't well kept-up. Our room (the same mentioned in another review on these pages) was charmless. It had ongoing plumbing problems (sink that leaked, water that was either tepid or scalding), water stains on the ceiling, noisy A/C system. The place wasn't awful, just dingy and a bit depressing.
First class outfit, no friend visit charge, good pool, room clean, free safe deposit box, staff always happy and smiling, VG VFM.
The Thai staff is very nice but I found the hotel disappointing and I would not stay there again.
I stayed at the Club Bamboo recently and found the hotel very pleasant. Having stayed at other hotels in the last few years in Phuket, I was interested in finding a location in the southern part of Patong Beach that was elevated up the side of the mountain. Club Bamboo is a short hop off of Na Nai road and was unaffected by the tsunami. The staff was great and personally communicated with me via email prior to my visit to confirm the bungalow with a late arrival time. The room was very clean. The bar staff kept me happy with cold drinks and towels. The front desk personel were always helpful with advice. The driver personally took me on a tour of the island to visit the temples for what I would call bus fare. The hotel is quite suitable for anyone or anyone couple or group. The online special rates for long stays afforded an even better value. I will stay at Club Bamboo again.
We stayed in a bungalow suite at this gay friendly hotel from Christmas Eve until January 4th 05. We found the thai staff extremely pleasant - but the european management is most unhelpful and uncaring. The resort is much in need of a soft refurbishment. Towels and other soft furnishing are worn out and the place has an air of unkemptness about it. Leaves remain uncleared from the pool and most of the giant, much advertised, waterfall no longer works. It is however ideally situated on a hill away from the hussle of Patong but an easy tut tut trip down to the shops, beach and nightlife. Some more bungalows are being built in the grounds ready for the 2005/6 high season. All aside we were very grateful to be staying up on the hill when the tsunami came!
