  • Don't Stay Here


    has 4 night pre paid. we walked out after about 2 hours. DO NOT STAY there. Lots of chain hotels just around the corner. Not only was it dirty, but a out safety was a concern after a serious incident. Australian Embassy questioned why we stayed there too. Never again.

    Unique Quality: nothing good to report

    Directions: close to beach, but other well known chains just around the corner

  • Go else where


    We have just returned from Ban Thai hotel after staying 10 days.
    The hotel was fair enough, the staff another problem..We arrived at 10 30pm, told our room wan't ready, but they would find us a room, which took a while. Then was told this room was temporary and our booked room would be ready by 10am the next day.10 am comes round, no call from reception to get us to our room, rang the front desk, communication shocking, the staff can hardly speak English, eventually we were told room would be ready 2 pm. This meant we had to vitually lose 3/4 of the day hanging around in our room, we could hardly unpack before we were certain of our room becoming available.2pm comes no phone call, by now Iam livid, call reception , they can't understand english ,mutter I should come to reception to talk to some one who could help us.I visit the village idiot, he says, "are you happy with the present room as the room you booked is still not available." Well, i saw red, blew my top, did not fazzle them one iota..We then stayed in tht room for the rest of our time there.NoApologies, Night mare contiued.. read on .I asked for a late check out to 6pm, no problem i was informed, just pay 8000 bart, $A298, but 4000 will be ok, thats $A148 Australian, Did'nt happen, spoke to customer guest supervisor, they said thats it, or wait in lobby for 6 hours, which we did.(.no way would we pay the full day rate @$A298 even with 50% discount. $A148 till 2pm...WAS OFFERED But stick it I told them.. Very disapointed -----
    beware of this mob travellers
    , v

    Unique Quality: Room not bad, cleaning of room was only a very quick lick over each day, front verandah, never cleaned.. Bathroom, bath much too high for somebody who might have difficulties climbing high sides... Had to repeatably ask for shampoo etc daily , ice tray never set the ice blocks.. Breakfest not much variety over 9 days, butter was rank, could smell it with out even unwrapping it, not kept on ice either, very runny (soft) when touched.. the best of breakfest was the staff who cooked the eggs daily, a most happy young man.. plenty to eat though if you liked the same same each day.. Staff should be better trained in Engilsh, it would avoid complications I'm sure ..
    Pool nice, very slippery on 5 or so steps on going into pool, the attendant on duty was a chap named "Jump" a very helpful young man, he was the only of the staff worth tipping generouly at the end of our stay..

    Banthai Resort


    A lovely looking resort which is in close proximity to the beach and sea, and to the various stalls and shops in Phuket. With several pools within it's vicinity, with some rooms having access near their patio, it's quite easy to see how people can stay within the confines of the resort. The air-conditioned rooms are very clean and tidy, and look very much the part with dark wooden furnishings and white linen. For the price, it is luxury at it's cheapest.

    A hidden gem


    When we first planned our holiday to Phuket we read through the airline's holiday brochure and also asked forumites questions and finally decided on the banthai. Mainly because we liked the idea of a room which had direct access to the pool. The Banthai was described in the brochure as a standard hotel but it looked very nice and was certainly the most central to all that Patong beach had to offer so we went ahead and booked it for 10 days. We certainly were not disappointed. The rooms were superb and the direct access to the pool was even better than we had imagined. You exited the room by a sliding door and literally fell off the balcony into the water. and the pool bar was 10 metres away!
    I can thoroughly recommend the Banthai it is far from a standard hotel

    A great place to stay


    It is a great place to stay. The staff is friendly and welcoming. It's a 4 star hotel but I tell you, the accomodation is like a 5 star hotel. It's close to the beach and many shops. Starbucks is like 2 mins walk. The place is in the middle of Patong Beach.

    Unique Quality: The pool is nice with jets that massages your tired legs, arms and body. It has a pool bar too!

  • Banthai Beach Resort & Spa


    Located at the centre of Patong Beach. Contemporary Thai design and architecture. It is a perfect balance for a relaxing, yet fun-filled holiday in Phuket

    Lot of happening places nearby. Not suited for budget travellers.

    Unique Quality: They have this unquie deluxe room which offers balcony with step down Jacuzzi and direct pool access.

    Banthai Beach Resort and Spa


    Stayed there every year for the past four years. Modern resort right in the heard of Patong Beach but set back off the road so it is quite. Also is great value for money.

    The resort is a great place to base yourself it has everything you need and when you walk out the front door you are in the middle of Patong and to your left or right there are plenty of stalls for shopping, and plenty of Restaurants and bars. Walk across the street and you are on Patong Beach.

    Unique Quality: Resort built in two wings each wing has it's own pool with Pool Bar, spa beds and so on. Design of Pool area encourages you to lay down read a book and relax. Third wing opening in July 2006 with another pool.

    Rooms are very modern and stylish and have balconies looking down onto Pools.
    Out the front of Resort you have the open air Port Restaurant, Port Bars, Starbucks, and Haagan Daaz Ice Cream.

    Resort also has Gym, Tailor and Day Spa.

had my best time ever here.

by un6abe3yah about Banthai Beach Resort and Spa

This hotel was amazing on all levels.It was a 2 minutes walk to Bangla road wich is the place for night life. And it was right across the road from the beach.
We had the Deluxe room with the private Jacuzzi and it was so worth it. The staff was friendly and the rooms always clean.
i would defiantly recommend this hotel the pool is beautiful. There’s a pool bar in the pool so u can sip a cocktail while ur in the water.
The hotel has a great restaurant and bar right outside the entrance. The food is delicious and they have live bands I think on weekends.
The Hotel’s spa was the best thing ever. It was a 5 star spa and they knew what they were doing. Everyone who goes there must have a massage session in this spa

Hotel Banthai was an all...

Hotel Banthai was an all wooden hotel, a great living experience and cheap too, though a little far from the NIGHT BAZAR

The Banthai Hotel.... you won't be disappointed

by TripAdvisor Member jenny48

The Banthai Hotel Resort is marketed in the holiday brochures as a standard hotel but here's a secret... it is far from standard. The rooms are excellent and take a tip... spend a few extra $$ and upgrade to a Deluxe Pool Room. Each room has a balcony with a lovely big sofa bed and you can literally fall off that into the pool. The staff were very friendly... they could probably be a little more well versed in English but hey... how many of us can speak Thai!. The breakfast is served in a seperate building to the main hotel building but it is only about 25 metres from the front entrance but rest assured It is a lovely buffet breakfast. BUT the best part is that 50 metres from the entrance to the hotel is the greatest Irish Pub "Molly Malones". We would definitely stay at the Banthai again if we ever returned to Patong

absolutely fabulous !! :D

by TripAdvisor Member jennsd

we stayed at the banthai for 5 days!!! our first impression of the banthai was so great, the receptionist was very kind and helpful, the lobby was beautiful, it had such a peaceful air about it!!!
the rooms were clean and well designed, the balcony overlooked the pool which was fabulous for chilling and taking in the sea breeze :P.
breakfast was great too, they had a wide variety of food and the cook was quite friendly.
overall, we really enjoyed our stay there :P... and we would definitely stay there again.

Banthai beach resort

by bruceroxy

l am going to phuket in MAY and l am just wondering what the Banthai beach resort is like and is it in a good location

RE: Banthai beach resort

by stappm

It is on the South Side of Patong and in a great location - everything is in walking distance but the Banthai has a large property so you don't feel cramped when at the resort. I know everything is relative, but Patong is a reasonably small town and easy to get around either walking, renting a tuk-tuk or motor bike

Hope that helps.

Happy Travels

RE: Banthai if great

by davo61

Have just returned from holiday at the Banthai Beach Resort, and it's a fantastic brand new/refurbished property. Everything is contemporary with modern rooms, 2 huge pools with poolside bars, all rooms overlook one of the pools, and all standard rooms (which are fantastic) have a balcony with a pool view.
The hotel has restaurants and bars out the front by the beach, but the actual resort accommodation is setback and is in a quiet location.
The best value Patong restaurants like Sabai Sabai, S&G and Sweet are all within a minutes walk .. the best market shopping is all close to the resort .. and if you want nightclubs - then Bang-La Road is just down the road.
Best Resort in Patong - most underated.
