My wife and I have just come back from 10 days stay at the Salathai Hotel Resort, from March 3 – 13 2012 and really we wish we were still there.
We found this hotel on TripAdvisor and chose it simply because of the totally positive feedback from previous guests. I could not find any fault or anything bad said about it.
I booked our stay direct through the hotel and I found Sunny to be helpful and a delight to deal with.
We arrived in Phuket just after midnight after a 12 hour flight from Auckland – Bangkok direct then another hour flight to Phuket so we were pretty wrung out by the time we got to Phuket airport.
We were met by a taxi at the airport and driven to our hotel arriving at about 1:am. We were shown our room on the ground floor beside the pool and went straight to bed.
We found the air conditioning unit a bit on the noisy side and this was to prove to be the only thing we could possibly fault during our ten-day stay
We woke up late the next morning and ushered to the restaurant for our alfresco breakfast of cereal, tropical fruit, toast and the choice of a full cooked breakfast, all part of the daily tariff.
The hotel grounds are absolutely immaculate with the large swimming pool the central point surrounded by Frangipani trees. The ground staff keeps the pool and grounds pristine and are a credit to them.
Our first visit to Phuket and indeed Thailand was made so much memorable thanks to Sunny and her team at the Salathai hotel. We met other guests there who have been coming back to the Salathai Resort year after year, and in some cases three or more times a year which confirmed to us that we had stayed in one of the most popular places in Phuket.
This will not be our last visit to Phuket or to Salathai Resort either. One of the many features is the location, About 3 minutes walk to Patong Beach, 15 minutes to the JungCeylon shopping complex and retaurants, and one block from Bungalar Road. Another feature is the quiet location. We never heard any noise other than the air-con machine. I suggest that money for value this has to be right up there as far as value for money.
