“Perfect Location, On the beach road, and a short walk to all the FUN!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2009

This was our 3rd time to Patong beach, and 2nd stay at the holiday inn, and it didn't disappoint. We travelled with friends, which it was their 1st time to thailand, and wanted to ensure that they would have fond memories of what Thailand has to offer.
A very warm welcome, and easy check-in. Good size bedroom with mini fridge and complimentry bottled water. The only question i would have to ask myself -Why have a window looking into the shower room from the bedroom?
The prices around the hotel aren't cheap, as they add 10% service charges and 7% local tax, but are good quality. Just keep an eye out for time as HAPPY HOUR starts at 16:00hrs at the Terrazzo beach bar until 18:30, and 18:00-20:00 at the reception bar, the girls can recommend most of the cocktails!!
Out and about- Beers range from 50-100Bhts, depending where you drink, on average 70-80Bht along Bangla road.(Chang is the cheapest, with Tiger/Singha/Heinekin all 10Bht more)
Food- along the beach road tends to be more expensive, due to it's location, approx £10-15 per meal. The quieter side streets are better value- Thai restraurant near Harry's bar called 'SWEET' was 1100Bht for 2 course meal and drinks for 4 adults, or if you fancy a good steak head down soi La Diva off Rat-U-Thit 200 Pee road(the Back road) to TRE KRONER swedish restraurant. Very good value & friendly staff.
Tours- We had 2 trips, 1 to James Bond island (which included sea cave canoeing), and 1 to Phi Phi islands/snorkelling and Maya Beach(location of the film THE BEACH) by speedboat, both highly recommended.
We played golf at the Phuket golf & country club, pre-book over the internet with www.phuket-golf.com, as i found that was cheaper.

My partner and I have just returned from a 10 night stay in the Busakorn wing of HI. This is without doubt the nicest hotel we've ever stayed in. The helpfulness and friendliness of tall the staff we came across made all the difference. The pool is beautiful, with swim up bar and happy hour cocktails 4-6pm. Busakorn studios are kept clean though could probably do with modernising but are spacious and have great pool views. We indulged in some spa treatments that would've cost a lot more back on the UK and would recommend treating yourself to thai massage and facials here. Sams Steakhouse has perfectly cooked steaks and again, staff are really attentive. Hadnt booked for breakfasts but did pay the 375 baht per person one morning (pretty expensive) but every kind of food imaginable including steaks, ribs, rice was on offer. Was impressed that we were able to check out at 4pm on last day without charge. Wouldnt hestiate in coming back to this hotel. It exceeded our expectations.

My husband & I have just returned from Phuket staying the entire time in a Pool access Busakorn Villa (room2101) . Quite simply it is the best we have ever seen- beautiful large room - great shower, huge tv, great bed keep beautifully clean each day by the lovely Thai ladies. 2 steps out of your room into the pool on for the residents of the villas - most days there were on 3 ro 4 others - it felt literally as if it where your on private swimming pool - fantastic bar man - who has been there for 17 years testament to how well the holiday inn do things. Had 3 meals in the hotel one a the Busakorn restaurant, one at the Seebreeze and one at Terrazo - all were fantastic and obviously a little more expensive than out on the street but totally worth it. Had 2 massages at the Aspari Spa the best we have ever had. The whole complex is a credit to the management and staff it is truly a tropical paradise - we went without our kids - the Busakorn Wing is certainly more suited to adults - which as this was our first holiday without kids - it was a treat. Patong is crazy but once you step into the complex you could not hear a thing - to sum up - I wish I could go back every six months - but I will start saving now for the next break away - Holiday Inn you are a amazing!!

The Holiday Inn was a fantastic place to stay for our week long holiday in Phuket! The hotel was extremely clean, our rooms were thoroughly cleaned on a daily basis (including floors mopped, new sheets and bathroom cleaned). The food in the hotel was sensational, especially breakfast where you could have plain old toast, waffles, french toast, roast meat or traditional Thai food!
The pools were also awesome! And the swim up bar was terrific! Happy Hour was great as all drinks were 50% off, meaning $4.00 cocktails!
Sams, Terrazzo and The Busakorn Restaurant were all definetely worth eating at and I believe were very reasonably priced (although food is cheaper on the streets).
The staff were 100% helpful and always willing to provide assistance!
The Aspara spa is also well worth a visit!
I was worried about staying here due to the bad reviews I read on Trip Advisor but honestly, I cannot understand why people were complaining as I honestly had no faults with the Holiday Inn and would recommend it to all travellors looking for a luxiourious place to stay!

We stayed for 10 nights in the main wing and found the whole experience from booking in to ckcking out very enjoyable. The hotel is exceptionally clean with friendly responsive staff. We stayed in the main wing where the rooms were well furnished, large & air conditioned. The gym although small had enough equipment to have a decent workout. My only complaint was that the although guests in the main wing could use the Busakorn pool they could not use the sunbeds.
The location was great as it is just across the road from the beach and far enough (but not too far) from the nightlife & restaurants. We found it best to walk along the beach road for any restaurants & at the end the lively Bangla road returning by Tuck Tuck for 200 Baht. 2 nights in Bangla was enough for us but it certainly is a sight to see.
We had one meal in the hotel which was the German themed evening 7 the food was very good, varied & plentiful.
We certainly would recommend the Holiday to anyone who is looking for a friendly well run, stylish hotel in Patong.

We booked the Busakorn Wing when we arrived but it was a dissapointment.The rooms are quite old and smelled a little stranged.
We moved to the main wing with a seaview and view over the main pool.
Big rooms with big tv and a bathtube and a separate shower.Lovely big rooms with very good cleaning and a free minibar.The aircondotion wasn´t noisy and it was a very nice location.Outside you had Terrazzo restaurant with the best food in Patong.And you have to try Sam´s in the ground floor,excellent food!
Main pool is quite small and in the afternoon the water is warm.
Childrens pool is beside the hotel and I didn´t see any children there beacuse it was no goog spot for small children.They can swim in the main pool because it´s nicer for parents to sit there instead of the small childrens pool.
The staff are very friendly and we really enjoined our stay,we did´nt leave the hotel exept from 2 days at the beach.
Although you have a feeling of "motel" and I think the main pool could be bigger.In the Busakorn Wing side there was a big better pool but we were there only one time because the people there were older and it seemed to be much more quiet than in the main pool.
Check in and out was very smooth,and they are very frendly and nice.It was no problem to upgrade to a deluxe room from Busakorn Wing.
We also tried Amari because we were going to stay there for the last 6 days but we moved back to Holiday after have spent a few hours in Amari.
Hoilday was much better,close to the beach and very good food!
The spa was very good and we spent a couple of hours there with professional staff,very nice relaxation.
Our son 8 year cut his hair and he looked lovely,the best cut he ever had!
I can really recommend the spa and the hairdresser.

Just got back from a week in the Holiday Inn and it was one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed in. We stayed in a deluxe sea view room in the main wing which I paid 2000 baht a night to upgrade to from the standard room we would have had with my priority club miles booking. The room was very big, had a lovely bathroom which opened onto the room, a 42" plasma tv, a massive bed and a large balcony with sun loungers overlooking the pool. Also very unusually, the air conditioning worked perfectly and was quiet as a whisper. Oh and the mini-bar was free as well!

The service was excellent from the airport pick-up (extra charge) to the smooth check-in through to the maids who were happy to do your room at whatever time of day suited you. The food in the restaurants was very good but a little pricey by local standards and there were nicer places right on the beach about 0.5km away such as Concaved.

The only issue from our perspective was the noise from the adjoining beach road. The excellent double glazing in the room prevented the noise from affecting your sleep but when you were on the balcony, in the outdoor restuarants or by the pool, it was impossible to escape from the traffic noise. Also as soon as you stepped out of the hotel you were descended upon by vendors (taxis, t-shirts, tailors etc). This is a feature of Patong in general but you need to be aware that the hotel is in the middle of all of this. If you want less noise then the Bukasorn wing appeared to be much quieter but lacking the sea breeze which kept the termperature down in the main wing.
