Horizon Patong Beach Resort & Spa
Travel Blogs from Patong
We stayed at Patong Beach, the hotest spot in Phuket. Water activities abound, as do restaurants offering excellent dishes of every known cuisine. Accomodation ranges from simple guest houses to luxurious hotels. The nightlife is Internationally renowned and you'll find pubs, go-go bars, discos, floor shows and much.
Its been a busy and successful 2 weeks. After job interviews in Bangkok around a month ago, I have now signed a formal job offer. The role is a Senior Developer role based in Bangkok, starting end of September. I am very happy to share this news as it has long been an ambition of mind to work abroad and to get the chance in south east asia is very exciting.

Patong is lady boy central. I have never seen so many lady boys in one place in Thailand before. I have to say I am glad that I am not straight and single otherwise my stay here could be tainted after one drunken night alone! A Scottish guy on my course told me that a lady boy had tried to pickpocket his friend, his friend only noticed ...
... the floor so from there we can work out what each gibbon has been eating or if they have gone off food for any reason, etc. Quarantine is usually worked by 1 person so whenever I worked on it I could take my MP3 player along and dance around whilst doing all my chores – I decided people don’t dance with hoses enough, even if the gibbons do look at you like you’ve gone mad.
Also quarantine is the only place we keep our young babies and so we have ...

If you ever get lost here the directions are easy...just follow your nose to the stench that is the main drag...I am here to say it is funky on the monkey smells which becomes normal after a few beers. We did the normal playing pool, dice game, hammering a nail in a block of wood, and basically getting taken for our Bahts as these folks around these parts are professional hustlers. All is good and we now know the lay ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Horizon Patong Beach Resort & Spa
Will return again.
This was our second time at the Horizon & like the first we had a Ball. Food first class, staff the best, we will return in a year or two for sure. Thank you all ance again. Reg & Valerie Mills Western Auatralia.
I loved the horizon! the place looks fantastic, the food at the baluchi is exceptional and the staff are the friendliest and most helpful i've encountered. having forked out a fortune for a crummy little place in miami earlier this year i was a bit dubious because of the rates here. needless to say i pleasantly surprised by the horizon. I would happily go back and recommend it to anyone.
Great, but construction next door
There is contruction for a hotel ongoing right next door, so exercise caution in booking this hotel. Although the ammenities are excellent, and the staff generally helpful, took me 2 days to finally switch my room during my stay, but even after moving more to the back of the hotel can still hear the constuction inside my room, and it wouldn't be such a big deal but they continue on late into the night, sometimes 9 or 10pm. Even relaxing by the pool you can hear it, so going to the beach is the only way to avoid it.
We and our two best friends had 8 great nights a week ago in this almost hidden hotel yet virtually opposite the beach in the center of patong beach. It is very quiet and cosy with big rooms, both ours on the 1st floor overlooking one of two pools. It has obviously had major work in the past few months since the disaster. So everything is new and clean. All the staff were very friendly and obliging and helped us whenever we needed something. Breakfast was included for us and was very good. The standard of food in the main (of 2) restaurants was not to our liking and we found much better quality at a lower price within a couple of minutes walk outside of the hotel, and this was the only thing to let it down a bit , for us anyway. We travelled on an upgraded package and would definately go back there again.
LOVED THE HORIZON HOTEL
Stayed at the Horizon for 7 days in November 2004. Beautiful hotel and very friendly staff. Rooms very immaculate, cleaned daily. Peaceful yet entertaining and like your own little peace of paradise. Would reccommend anyone to stay there if your in for a cheap yet great holiday.
My partner and i had a fantastic holiday at Horizon Beach Hotel, Patong Beach in october. The people are so friendly, standards are exceptional in the hotel the whole area was so magical and romantic. We are so saddened by what happened on december 26th although we realise there was a lot of damage and like alot of other tourists who have been to thailand know that phuket and other areas will be up and running again. Whilst we were staying at Horizon Beach we used the massage parlour quite a few times we do hope the ladies there are safe. We also made friends with Atit who works in reception we hope he is safe along with the rest of the staff. May we wish you good luck on your reopening. We shall be back to Phuket in November 2005.
My wife & I stayed in your Hotel for 14 days in Sept.2002 & had a wonderful time. We hope! to be able to return in Sept/Oct. this year if all goes well with the re-building of Phuket etc. we will keep in contact with our travel agent who should be up to date with everything.
Wishing you all the very best of heath & luck, & hoping to be with you all soon.
Regards & best wishers Mr. Mrs Reg & Valerie Mills
Enjoyed the Horizon Beach Hotel
My Husband myself and 3 friends stayed at the Horizon Beach Hotel in November. The staff were very friendly plus we had a beautiful buffet breakfast every day. The rooms were excellent . We were central to everything + beach 2 min walk. Overall very impressive.
For the price very good
Staying at the Horizon Beach for the second time we found it to be just as good as our first stay in 2002.
Staff are very friendly and keen to assist.
Pools are good and the hotel is in a great location.
This is the second time i have been to this hotel and i think it is great. The rooms are large and serviced daily. 2 bottles of water were left each day and 2 beach towels. The buffet breakfast was also good value as it was included in the price. 2 good sized pools are on premises and the beach is just across the street so you can select one or the other very easily. Not a noisy hotel and patrons were very friendly, a gym and creche are also available I found everything to my liking and would defenitly go back again
