“Perfect Place to Stay infront of Patong Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Just got back from Baan Lai Mai and really glad I choose this hotel. From outside this resort doesnt have a bigsign or look grand.
- Location : Just in the centre of Patong Beach.Beach just across the street from the hotel. No better location for me =). Foods and Shops just beside the hotel. Bangla Street is just few blocks away.
- Facilities :Great swimming pool super nice, cozy lobby too with many comfy sofa just to relax around after a whole day going around.Easy access from outside to hotel. Minimart at the back.
- Room : We stay in Deluxe room with city view. Its quite in the back of the hotel. Noise from construction thats still going heard during the day but luckily we spent the wholeday outside. Better choose Pool View Room. Worth the money. Room itself is very big and have its own balcony chair and a sofabed. Its very clean also. Housekeeping change amenities everyday. cute towel folding. Bed is firm but with comfortable duvet sheet and nice pillow. No hot water problem.
- Breakfast : OK breakfast considering you can breakfast while seeing the beach in front of you.
- Service : You have to deposit $100 but they give back to you without hassle.
Overall, really love this hotel worth the money for a beach front hotel.
Would stay again if we go to phuket.

What a dissappointment a simple request for a second key was too hard for this hotel. Everytime we went out seperately the first one back had to go to reception and asked to be let in, which could take up to 20 minutes. If one decided to have a sleep during the day, you had to leave the only key in the slot otherwise the power and air conditioning wouldn't work. On return you would have to bang on the door to wake up your partner to let you in, or walk all the way to reception sign a form and then go wait in the hallway until they sent someone to open the door.
Amazingly management didn't see this as a problem.

Room Tip: Choose one that has a second key

Dear Khun Bob L,

Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay at Baan Laimai Beach Resort Phuket. We would like to apologize for your inconvenience for unable to have the 2nd key during your stay as management discuss to keep only one room key individually because the security reason for the building in front of beach line.

We stayed at Baan Laimai with friends and it was in a fabulous location. The staff were very friendly and the lagoon pool was the perfect place to start the morning and end the day after being out in the heat!

We stayed here with six other friends during the Water Festival. I was concerned based on previous trip advisor reviews; however my friend had stayed before and was impressed - our stay too was amazing. We made sure we were in the new wing and paid the extra for a deluxe pool view room.

The rooms were spacious and wonderful; they were serviced daily and (when you're in them) very relaxing. The bed was incredible. Great night sleep. The buffet breakfast was good - and you could sit outside across the road from the beach -wonderful atmosphere.

You walk out onto the street and you are in the center of Patong; close to all the action, shopping and one road away from the beach. I had concerns as well as staying in the heart of Patong (normally we would choose Kata) - but again I was proven wrong. It was fabulous and I always felt safe. It was a short walk to everywhere and lots of fun.

The grounds of the resort were lovely also. We spent considerable time by the pool, having cocktails and food bought to us (which were excellent). It was the ultimate in relaxing with friends and good times were had. Other guests were friendly and we had wonderful laughs with the staff who took good care of us and made us smile all the time.

The food was also fabulous. We went out one night to a more expensive restaurant and were disappointed. The following night we ate at the resorts main restaurant and the food was delicious. There was also a band on each night; and the women's voices were amazing. Great back-drop again for a good evening - either with a group or a couple.

We went to stay at a different hotel (just my fiance and I) later in the trip - what a mistake! In hindsight we would have stayed at the Baan Laimai. We will return there in the future.

Going during the water festival was brilliant - and a must do. It only shut things down (and not really shut things down; just by Patong's standards) for 24 hours. It was so much fun having a massive water fight on the streets with everyone in good humor. We will be bringing our children here at the same time next year.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a Deluxe Pool View. The pool access looked lovely too (which we try to get normall...

Very happy with the hotel and staff, great location fare prices for meals and drinks, great pool and would return there again. You will be faced with street hawkers out the front, but that is Patong, you will get it on every street in Phuket.

This hotel, had no problems ripping off its customers. There was a line of people complaining.
About silly things like an item of there bill that was apparently used. But the customer would say it wasnt. They had actual price lists for things like a cup from your room if it was broken was 1000 baht ($30). It seems this place doesnt want repeat business. And they get away with it.

It is in a terrible location. Even though it is on the beach. Its just a terrible location, everyday you will be annoyed if you need to walk anywhere by the herds of street hawkers and suit makers.
That end of the beach does have some hotels that are good. But its just not a good location in my opinion.

To top it all off. They were building right on top of our room with no care in the world that we were asleep at 8am in PATONG!!!!! I asked if they had rooms in the wing that wasnt being built and there was. So why the HELL would you put us in the wing that has EXTREMLY LOUD renovations and building happening right on our ROOF.
We payed for a 4 nights and stayed 2 nights. No refund was given. I will contact AGODA about the money but i doubt anything will come of it. They asked why we checked out, and still nothing was offered or done about it.

Worst HOTEL on the planet without a doubt.

Room Tip: Overpriced and bad fittings dont stay here

Dear Khun Swivell,

First of all we would like to apologize for your unpleasant stay at Baan Laimai,

We'd like to clarify about the broken cup charge, We set the price of aminity item charge clearly in the room. We surprize in your comments about over price charge for broken cub was 1,000.-thai baht. Infact this item we charge 200 baht per coffee cup.

We're sorry to hear that our location not convenient to you. As our hotel set in a location in the middle of Patong beach, near to shops on the street side and only 300 meter from beach.

The construction of the gym will finish soon and ready for use in the end of this year. We are very sorry if the construction might interrupt your stay at Baan Laimai and we will make sure that our noise issue is improve within this year.

Thank you for your feedback and we will take this for consideration with our board members to find the best solution for your stay at Baan Laimai in future.
