If you are looking for a quiet place to stay and don’t mind a 5-10 mins walk to Patong Beach, then Baantonsai Garden Resort would be the choice. You will find yourself surrounded amongst greenery and garden in the south part of busy Patong. For THB370 per night for an ensuite double room, this is one of the cheapest accommodation which you can find in Patong Beach.
We stayed there for a night and found the room to be very spacious and very clean. There is a mini pool for those who wish to swim and take in the sun in peace. No more touts asking you to buy t-shirts, watches, massages, taxi, parasailing, jetski.
The Baantonsai also operates a tour desk, massage and restaurant. You practically don’t have to step out to the crowded Patong Beach.
During my first nite in phuket, me and my other 3 new friends which i met in the bus, we walk around to find a place for dinner. In the mean time, we check for the cheap hotel around the area, and i have found 2 cheap guest house, same price but they have different facilities. When i first saw this Dino cheap guest house, the location is at rat u thit road, which is the same road of my first hotel, stoney monday. We were asking at the reception whether we can take a look at the room, and they straight showing us the room that they have, It is very huge room, clean bath room with a queen bed but they don't have TV. the price for one nite only at THB400, they seems have a lots of room to rent out. Then After dinner at rat-u-thit road, i found another guest house which is just oposite the dino's guest house, still at the same road. The hotel name is Karaket guest house, i take a look at the room and its very small, for a fussy people, i dont think they will like this room.
The hotel are very near to the beach, it just 5 mins walk from the hotel, as well as from Stoney Monday Guest house.
This Karaket Guest house is a small guest house, it at the shop area, cannot really see the sign, they have very small sign for their hotel. The facilities inside, they have queen bed but they are not clean the room for you during your stay unless you ask for make up the room. They have small fridge for you to keep your drinks or food and what so ever, but the fridge left empty for you, and they have TV and fan. the bath room are clean too. I just satisfied during my stay here for 2 nites.
The price for the room are standard and they are not following the seasons, all seasons are the same. The price range is at THB400 for a room with fan, and THB600 for a room with air-cond.
Personally i have never stay at this hotel before. Only dropping by to see the hotel. Its quite an old hotel but in good condition. The hotel is popular for those who wants a transit. But for those who wish to explore Phang Nga and its bay, this is one of the better choice of hotel in Phang Nga. This hotel is near the Phang Nga Bay where you can easily chartered a longtail boat to tour the beautiful formationof limestone at Phang Nga Bay and also the James Bond Island and Sea Guppy Village.

Baan Suphan is beautifully located on Nanai hill overlooking Patong Beach. From this quiet and relaxing spot, it takes you just 5 minutes to the center of Patong Beach, Phuket most popular touristic centre.
All our apartments are very stylish and euipped with cable tv, air-conditioning, telephone, safe box, king size bed, hot and cold water shower and a kitchen inclusive electric stove and refrigerator.
They offers motorbikes rental and also arrange tours around the spectacular Phuket island.
Small and luxury hotel, located in Patong beach Kathu, Phuket island. The distance from Phuket Internation Airport is about 45 minutes drive and 25 minutes drive to Phuket Town. If you want to stay in Patong but hope to avoid the crowd, this is the place for you.
The hotel location is just 1.5km to the Patong beach and entertainment area of Patong such as varieties of shopping amenities, fast food contres, restaurant, bars, massage parlour, etc........
This is a wonderful hotel based on my visit previous visit and located on Nanai Hill overlooking the entire Patong. Hopefully those who spend a night or two at JRP Hotel wil have a wonderful experience living there.
All superior and deluxe rooms are luxuriously equipped with:
- individual controller air-conditioning
- key tag system
- cable and staellite TV
- hot and cold shower
All rooms have big balcony with sun bath chairs for sea-view rooms.
This accommodation was ok if you like Kata Beach (we found it too commercial and left). It has free internet (one computer, so sometimes it is busy) and a nice bar/cafe downstairs (but it is noisy here, like most of Kata, since it is open to the street and also has music playing). However, make sure you don't get the top floor room adjacent to the balcony. I locked myself out one morning while my husband was asleep and went onto the balcony accessible from the hallway to knock on the window to wake him up since my door knocking had no effect - and found the window had no lock and could very easily be entered completely unnoticed. It is maybe a 10 minute walk to the beach from this accommodation and there are many shops nearby. Lots of Scandinavians stay here. Their website says that they take credit cards but when we checked out it was broken - I don't know if this is a permanent "broken" or not. The room itself was ok, though the bathroom does need to be refurbished. It was clean. No great view.
p.s. If you are like us and like a nice, quiet, uncrowded laid-back beach with nature, then try Nai Yang, right next to the airport (but not noisy) - it has a completely different character from Kata. Very nice, it is a long beach with some little restaurants right on the beach, romantic - you can eat with your feet in the sand!
LK Patonghouse is a nice quiet guest house about 300 meters from the beach and 300 meters from the Banglà road.Rooms are spacious all with tv dvd fridge and wireless connection.I apid 800 baht(about 17 euro) for a double room and had really a good time.The management is italian but, for my great surprise, the hotel was not full of italians, that was the thing I was worried about: being thousend miles from home and listen people commenting football matches on monday morning.
The only bad sides of the hotels are: no breakfast and no lifter, so when you get a room at the 4th floor, expect some phisical exercise.
Is really good situated on the south Patong, 100 m to the beach. Nice room with lovely balcony, i have the view on the large pool, it's possible to rent some bungalow. Super large garden. A good stay in this quality hotel.
Nice view from the balcony, large pool, large garden
This is the Ao Phang Nga National park Headquarters. But in it, there is accomodation (with simple amenities), a restaurant (very good food and environment), nature trail and easy acess to James Bond Island and Phang Nga Bay.
Personally, i've never stayed here before but i always came here to eat whenever i am in Phang Nga or driving to Koh Samui.
There is only one air-conditioned room with queen-sized bed and toilet going for 900baht. They also have rooms for 6, 10 or 15 people at below 2000baht for each room.
Its a very natural environment as there is no hotel offering accomodation that is very close to nature. The other one i know that is near to it and is posh, is Baan Krating Jungle Beach Resort.
Very close to nature. Good for nature lovers. Please refers to my travelogues undert Ao Phang Nga National Park and James Bond Island ro view its surroundings.
This is a resort at the Phang Nga Bay itself, facing the sea. Its a good place for those going to James Bond Island or wanting a remote and peaceful place to stay, away from the crowded island of Phuket.
Nearby the hotel, 3 minutes walk away, you can chartered boats going to James Bond Island, Phang Nga Bay, Khao Ma Ju, Khao Khian, Tham Lod Lek, Tham Lod yai, Kao Pan Yee, Khao Ping Gun, etc....
Hotel facilities include swimming pool with natural surroundings, air-conditioned sknooker room, 2 dining facilities: an indoor coffee shop, and an outdoor, riverside restaurant, 2 well-euipped conference rooms and a well-stocked souvenirs corner.
We come for 2 nights and decided to extend 4 more nights! This hotel is THAT good! The rooms are beautiful, lots of space to move around + good space and drawers to put your cloths + super clean. We also had a balcony overlooking the mountains and the sea, superb! Another GREAT thing for us was that the desk is HUGE so we can both work from the desk. The bed is super comfortable, great water pressure and SUPER FAST FREE internet.
They also have a nice little gym, all the typical cardio equipment PLUS weights! And 3 computers to check internet for free.
The breakfast was very good, including an egg station for fresh, made to order meals. The people at the front desk is SUPER friendly, they make you feel very welcome, plus they have a "can do" attitude which is not the norm in Thailand (we asked for an extra chair for the desk "yes, no problem!")
VERY good location: The hotel is 2 blocks away from Karon beach, there is a 24 hour mini market downstairs and lots of bars and restaurants walking distance. PERFECT hotel and a GREAT value!
PS: we come from a hotel that was advertised "free internet" and when we got there you had to pay for it. I am glad because we would have missed this gem!
beautiful new hotel, very comfortable and with excellent service and great location. great value!
As we were on a low budget , we rented a house and were very pleased .
Two bedrooms , small living room , kitchen and bathroom.
The biger bedroom is with air-condition and other rooms with ventilators. Quite OK.
Also close to the beach , less than 5 minutes walking.
We were very happy with this accomodation because we met nice local people and became
good friends .
Under normal circumstances staying in Patong wouldn't be my first choice but if you do this place isn't at all bad. For such a busy resort it is actually pretty quiet, apart from some building work that is going on currently (November 2003).
Big rooms that are new, clean and comfortable. Very interesting showers - the water comes out of a big orifice rather than a normal shower head. I think this is to make it like a waterfall! The rooms have A/C, minibars and TVs with a good selection of English language channels. There is a smallish swimming pool with a pool bar. The lowest cost rooms are 1800 Baht a night.
highly recomended.....a bit on the pricey end but worth evry dollar. rent a scooter to get around...its less then 4 USD a day. i had a great time.
with 3 huge pools, 5 restaurants and direct access to the beach...who am i to complain.
We only stayed here for a night on 16 Jan 07 after our 4 days and 4 nights liveaboard scuba diving trip onboard The Really Wicked Witch arranged by Sea King Divers.
The service was quite good even though there was a miscommunication on the number of rooms but was resolved promptly.
The twin and quad-sharing rooms come with attached bathroom. TVs, bar fridges and wardrobes are standard.
I will recommend this if you are on a budget. Cheers!
There is a small swimming pool for you to have a dip and enjoy the sun without having to go to the beach!
If your rooms are along the street, you can enjoy your breakfast at your balconies!
I will upload some of the photograhs shortly...
