Duangjitt Resort & Spa
Travel Blogs from Patong
Today was our lazy day. We started with an amazing breakfast at the resort then a swim in the pool. After this we headed down to the markets for some more shopping. The markets are only a short walk from our resort but our resort is away from all the hustle and bustle of the night life. After a bit of shopping we had a wonderful one hour leg and …
CCWT Day 6, Bangkok airport
Well, here we are, six days into our world trip and today we farewell Thailand.
But let's backtrack a bit...
We departed Sydney on Monday afternoon and had a nine-hour flight to Bangkok.
... making a simple breakfast at the poolside table outside our room, then we go to the beach where $3 buys you a lounger and umbrella for the day. Then, dinner at a random street vendor or a small restaurant, followed by a walk in the town where the street provides the entertainment. Thrown in is the element of danger since the walks are along the side of streets congested with motorbikers, tourist vans, cabs, tuktuks, and obstacles galore. This is no place for the visually ...
... at the Mexican out front and then to pack. We got stuff everywhere. Oh well, that,s the end of our holiday. It has been a great experience with a great friend! Thanks geoff for letting Denise to run away for a week! Thanks Denise, you are as always an amazing friend! Glenda. Ditto for all of the above and I think Geoff was glad to get rid of me, you did him a favour and you are a very easy traveling companion to go away with but "turn the music up loud ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Duangjitt Resort & Spa Patong
We arrived in the evening and were nicely welcomed. A welcome drink, fast check in, a little nice chit-chat and the luggage carried to our room was a good start to our two weeks.
Two of us had just left the Hyatt hotel at Hua HIn where we had the most woderful experience to meet up with friends staying here. They had negotiated a rate with a member of the family that owned the hotel. W e were told we were given a special rate and a complimentary upgrade. We were shown to our room and checked in. The air conditioning was stuck on 27 degrees and couldn't be moved. Three phone calls later some body came up and said it was a compressor problem and couldn't be fixed until the next morning. I asked to be relocated to another room overnight and suddenly somebody appeared and fixed the problem. T he temperature settled at 19 degrees and stayed there. we tried t adjust it but to no avail. We rang reception again to request blankets. Another 3 phone calls before any action was taken. We then accessed the in room safe only to find it wasn't fixed to anything so considered it pointless to put anything in it.
Paradise close to the action
Amazing tropical paradise so close to Patong town centre, 4 minutes walk to the street bars. The rooms and balcony are private but all look out onto the tropical gardens and pool area. you can sit on the balcony at night, room lights off, bottle of wine and naked, totaly private. If a thunder storm happens buy it,s a show on it,s own. fab pool. great brecki and friendly staff. Breakfast is complimentry, lunch and dinner in Patong. i am fussy, this place is great.
Paradies in der Nähe wo was los ist
Unglaubliches tropisches Paradies in der Nähe der Innenstadt von Patong, in 4 Minuten läuft man zu den Bars an der Straße. Die Zimmer und der Balkon bieten Privatsphäre, von allen hat man Aussicht auf die tropischen Gärten und den Poolbereich. Abends kann man auf dem Balkon sitzen, mit ausgeschalteten Lichtern, einer Flasche Wein - und kann dabei nackt sein, so privat ist es. Wenn es mal gewittert, einfach akzeptieren, es ist ein ziemliches Erlebnis. Fabelhafter Pool, großartiges Frühstück und freundliche Angestellte. Das Frühstück war im Preis enthalten, Mittag- und Abendessen hatten wir in Patong. Ich bin ziemlich pingelig, aber dieser Ort hier ist großartig.
We stayed at the hotel for 1 week from 27nd December till 3rd January 2007 - for new Year 2007.
Ho soggiornato una settimana al Duangjitt e ne sono rimasta molto soddisfatta. Avevo una camera in uno degli edifici principali. La camera era molto pulita ed il personale molto amichevole. Il giorno dell'arrivo, ho trovato un cestino pieno di frutta tropicale. E' stato un pensiero molto carino! Il buffet della colazione era molto vario tra cui dolci quali panini alla cannella, torte ecc. Ho viaggiato molto ma non avevo mai visto una area piscina così estesa. Tre enormi piscine circondate da un giardino molto grande con palme ed altri alberi tropicali. L'unica lamentela è per l'illuminazione della camera: utilizzando luci a basso consumo energetico la camera aveva una scarsa illuminazione e luci fredde. Inoltre, la camera non aveva la possibilità di fare il té o il caffé. Nell'insieme, consiglio questo albergo.
We stayed at Duangjitt Resort for two weeks between 4-19 November. Great view of the enormous pool area and a nice hideout from Patong's sometimes heavy and noisy environment. It's about 15 minutes from the surreal Bangla Road but that's just a positive thing because it is just too much to spend every day of your vacation around Bangla road district. The breakfast was nice but nothing extrodinaire. Patong is a nice resort for those who like shopping, nightclubs, jetskis and a generally busy environment.
Ich war eine Woche im Duangjitt und ich war sehr zufrieden. Ich blieb in einem Zimmer in einem der Hauptgebäude. Das Zimmer war sehr sauber und die Belegschaft sehr freundlich. Am Ankunftstag bekam ich einen Korb voller verschiedener, tropischer Früchte. Das war sehr nett! Das Frühstücksbuffet bestand aus einer Menge Gerichte, die auch Süßspeisen wie Zimtschnecken, Kuchen, usw. beinhalteten. Ich bin schon viel gereist, aber ich habe noch nie zuvor einen so gigantischen Poolbereich gesehen. Drei riesige Becken umringt von einem sehr großen Garten voller Kokospalmen und anderer tropischer Bäume. Die einzige Klage war die Beleuchtung im Zimmer, denn sie benutzten Sparlampen, die nur ein kaltes und nicht ausreichendes Licht spendeten. Ich vermisste auch Einrichtungen zum Tee- oder Kaffeekochen. Alles in allem kann ich dieses Hotel wirklich empfehlen.
Wonderful pool areas and very friendly staff
I stayed for one week at Duangjitt and I was very satisfied. I stayed in a room in one of the main buildings. The room was very clean and the staff was very friendly. On the arrival day I did get a basket full with different tropical fruits. That was very nice!
The breakfast buffet had a lot of dishes including sweet things like cinnamon rolls, cakes etc. I have traveled a lot, but I have never seen such enormous pool areas before. Three huge pools surrounded by a very big garden with coconut palms and other tropical trees.
The only complaine was the lightening in the room, they used low energy lights that gave a cold and not sufficient light. I was also missing coffe and tea making facilities.
Over all I can really recommend this hotel.
