“BEST LOCATION IN PHUKET!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Amazing Location. Close to beach and shopping.. I have come to this island many times and have stayed in various locations. Each time i find myself wanting to come back to Safari. Marc and his staff are exceptional and make the stay even more relaxing and enjoyable. Can't say enough good things about the Hotel and Staff. :)

Stayed here many times, across the road from the beach, nice grounds and pool, feels very tropical. Staff and service are top notch, one of the best in its class in Patong.

Safari was awesome location wise. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The bar had great staff and was great to watch all the action on the main street. Just 2mins to beach n 2mins to the bars. Overall loved it!

Stayed again at the Safari Beach Hotel in Patong and once again it was excellent value for money. Had one of the two beach front rooms for the 2nd time and was again impressed with the huge bed and clean bathroom.

The pool is good and the staff were as friendly and efficient as ever.

Love this hotel and it's location!

We had booked rooms at a more expensive hotel across the street and were extremely disappointed. I will not name them but our stay at Patong Bay Garden Resort was the low light of our holiday. As such we decided to change hotels and were pleasantly surprised with this little gem found right across the road. We instantly felt better received when we booked and were treated like hotel guests the minute we arrived (and we hadn't even asked for anything). The staff were extremely helpful and greeted you with a smile every time you saw them. There really was nothing they wouldn't do and they made you feel quite at home while on holiday.

The rooms were nice and big, each with their own balcony which overlooked the pool and the beautiful gardens. There was plenty of hot water (although the pressure could have been a little better) and the AC along with everything else, seemed to be in perfect working order. They were very clean and well maintained and you are guaranteed a great night sleep on the comfortable king size bed with nice pillows.

Safari Beach also has its own restaurant called the Savoey. The food there was amazing (mainly seafood) with all on display for guests to choose from. We had eaten there previous to our stay and were very happy with our meal but were extremely delighted to find that the restaurants menu was also the room service menu. We have never ordered room service more and this indeed was a pleasant treat with the guarantee of a quality dish every time.

The location was superb, only 2 minute walk to Bangla Street and 2 minutes walk to the beach. You couldn't ask for better. However, the best part was the price. Very cheap for the service we received and a wonderful surprise. All in all - Extremely well priced, Fantastic service, Awesome food, Superb location, Great amenities and did I mention the price!

Thoroughly recommended, We will certainly be back!

My partner and i stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our Thailand trip. Safari is right next to Savoey Restaurant on the main beach road - you also get a discount at the restaurant which we weren't advised of by hotel staff (and would have been nice to know before we dined at Savoey with friends!) but found out when we ordered poolside service. The hotel is in a great spot, just across the road from Patong Beach and very close to Bangla Rd - however because of this you do get a bit of noise. We were able to block it out and sleep and i'm usually a light sleeper. The rooms were lovely - very modern with a large bathroom. TV and DVD player included, balcony, safe, beach towels avail from reception for the pool & beach, breakfast included which is at Savoey Coffee house - you need to order from the brekkie menu rather than it being a buffet - but you can order whatever you like and its included with your room if you book that option. Pool is great, actually deep enough to dive in one end which was a nice change! Lovely and calm to swim in after the beach, however not very private if you're after that (the Savoey restaurant overlooks it!). There are no beach chairs for the hotel but they're only 100 baht per chair anyway. Upon departure we asked if we needed to book a taxi, they mentioned something about it being fully booked out so would need to grab a taxi on the road - i assume this meant the hotel has a mini bus or service that goes to the airport, though we weren't advised of this when we checked in. Apparently there is room service from other restaurants apart from Savoey but we couldn't seem to find menus for these - it would have been good to have these in the room somewhere! Wifi access was perfect & also free. No complaints about hotel & room but would've been nice to be advised of the extras available that we had no idea about.

Stayed here for 5 days.
Well greeted from the reception counter, however they could barely speaks fluent English. Anyway they are lovely and friendly with their Thai culture.
Room was full with the aromatherapy smell, upon arrival.
Very well located as it is just next to Bangla road, less than 1 minute walk to the Patong beach, and less than 5 minutes walk to the biggest shopping mall Jungceylon.
Lots of hawkers nearby, currency changers, stalls, and 15 minutes walk to the OTOP shopping market.
Music from the clubs and parties every night after 730pm till 400am, but it isn't bothering me at all.
Housekeeping is nicely done and perfect. Free 4 bottles of mineral water per day.
Free wifi internet is commended.
Room service was fantastic. I ordered the room service from the seafood restaurant which is just beside the resort and to dine at room.

Water pressure was quite low.
Toilet is only equipped with a stand shower, and there's no shower curtain beside as some parts of the toilet got wet till the door.

Very comfortable and pleasant stay.
Will come back again.
