... We flew into the new airport so much of it was still under construction, including the food court! We had a choice of maccas, Burger King or some random restaurant that had a line ten foot deep of people that couldn't bear the aforementioned options. Needless to say we went for Maccas. The kids entertained the airport with a show while we had a drink at the bar pretending they weren't ours..... After a few more security checkpoints we finally boarded the plane for ...
... to have their photo taken with them. She said as they become juveniles at about 5 years of age they start to become quite aggressive and the way the locals deal with that is to beat them, often very severely. One of the gibbons she showed us had to have both hands amputated because of the severity of her injuries, and she will never be released. I walked away appreciating the magnitude of the woman's sacrifice to these animals. After ...

Afterwards Aude and I both confided in eachother that we had checked out where the lifejackets were and planned potential escape routes! Anyhow, we survived and with all this rain did we have raincoats at least to keep us dry....no....having lugged ...
... He said the seeds were originally bought over from Malaysia, as were cashew seeds. In the younger rubber plantation crops, pineapples are planted in between the rows to keep an income coming in, as the rubber plants take seven years to mature. We picked up two tourists who were Chinese or something similar. They were way out in a remote area, in a massive resort that looked very luxurious. We went in for a toilet stop then headed off to the jungle for our elephant ...

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.
Terriffic place to stay
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
