The best hotels in Patong
Patong offers its visitors a wide range of hotels and accommodation in general. Most hotels are located around the popular Patong Beach. Some hotels spoil their guests with the luxury of a private beach, which can be especially advantageous in the high season.
The Le Meridien Beach Resort in Patong is one of the top hotels on Phuket for its Relax Beach alone. The hotel is located about five kilometers from the center of Patong. Surrounded by tropical gardens, the hotel guests either relax at the pool directly at the resort or visit the Relax Beach, which is not open to the public. At Le Meridien Beach Resort, both families and individuals are welcome. In the Kids’ Club, the youngest guests can enjoy playing, while parents can play on the hotel’s own tennis courts, cool off on the huge pool terrace or pamper themselves in the spa.
The Merlin Beach Resort is located about three kilometres outside of Patong directly on Tri Trang Beach. The Sino-Portuguese style spa is the perfect place to leave everyday stress behind and immerse yourself in the holiday feeling. Some of the luxurious rooms offer direct access to the pool. Each suite has its own balcony from which guests can enjoy a magical sea view. The hotel’s culinary offer includes Asian, Mediterranean and international cuisine in three restaurants and an in-house coffee shop.
The Amari Resort is located directly on Patong Beach, where the hotel offers its guests an exclusive, private beach section. The hotel is located about 40 km from Phuket Town airport. The spa offers massages and relaxing treatments in small pavilions overlooking the Andaman Sea. Nearby is the Jungceylon shopping centre. The Bangla Road is also within easy reach of the hotel, yet far enough away so as not to disturb the night’s rest of the guests. In the hotel, the employees of two restaurants take care of the physical well-being of their vacationers. Each room has its own balcony.
At the Kee Resort & Spa, 244 rooms await their guests near Patong Beach. Seven suites even guarantee an undisturbed sea view. The hotel has a spa with 8 rooms in Sino-Portuguese style for relaxing treatments by trained staff. A highlight of the hotel is the lagoon-like pool in the centre of the resort.
Only about two kilometres from Patong Beach, Mai House Patong Hill is enthroned on a hill above Patong. The hotel can be reached from the airport in approximately one hour by car. Besides a spacious spa area, the hotel also impresses with its own fitness room. Of course, a pool should not be missing in any hotel and thus, the Mai House also offers a big outdoor pool. The five stars hotel accommodates its guests in air-conditioned rooms or suites. The centre of Patong is only ten minutes away by car and is thus the perfect starting point for an excursion to the nightlife of Patong and the Bangla Road. As with most of the larger hotels in Patong, Mai House Patong Hill offers both traditional and international cuisine at the hotel itself.
Even closer to Bangla Road is the Hotel A Casa di Luca. The distance of a little more than one kilometre can be comfortably covered on foot by the guests of the hotel. But even so, the hotel is located in a super central position. The shopping centre Jungceylon in the immediate proximity invites to an extended shopping trip. Every room has a flat screen and is of course air-conditioned. In the hotel itself there is a small Italian restaurant. But as the hotel receives its guests in the middle of Patong, it is easy to find the right thing for the big and small hunger in between. The familiar hotel with 12 rooms is the perfect choice for those who like to be in the middle of the action.
Patong is probably one of the most famous cities in Thailand and attracts the most visitors besides Bangkok. If you are looking for a change in your holiday, you will definitely find it here. Tourists can choose from a variety of accommodation options. From a simple guesthouse to a 4-star hotel to luxury hotels with integrated spa, Phuket and especially Patong leave nothing to be desired.
Nightlife and Beachlife in Patong
When evening comes, the Bangla Road turns into a rushing party mile. As soon as the road is closed to traffic, holidaymakers can immerse themselves in the nightlife. On a length of 370m the Bangla Road provides a lot of variety. Bars are lined up with clubs and discotheques. Many bars offer live music and karaoke, perfect for the start of a long night in which travesty shows and dancers provide a shimmering atmosphere.
After an exciting night in Patong and the Bangla Road a visit to the beach is just the right thing to relax. In the immediate vicinity of Patong there are 5 beaches that invite you to sunbathe, swim and snorkel. The Patong Beach is probably the most famous beach and therefore relatively well visited most of the time. In contrast to the Patong Beach, the Freedom Beach is less touristically developed. This is because the beach is difficult to access and a little bit hidden. But all efforts are rewarded with the view to the dream scenery of the Amandam Sea. At Tri Tra Beach, tourists can swim and relax undisturbed. For those who need a short break from the hustle and bustle of Patong, this beach is just the right thing. There is a danger of confusion with the similar sounding Tri Trang Beach nearby. It is located in a tiny bay hidden behind the Merlin Beach Resort. Only guests of the Le Meridien Beach Resort are allowed at the Relax Beach. The private beach of the hotel is located between Patong and Karon and is simply breathtaking. With its white beach and crystal blue water it is one of the most beautiful beaches on Phuket.
