My sister and i are headed to patong in august (her first trip and my second) and i would love to hear any opinions on accommodation you can give me.
Contrary to other travelers experiences last year i went with a friend to patong on a groupon voucher and stayed at Baan Yuree Resort and Spa. We had a great time, though
i must warn others that it was definately not the 4 star hotel rating that it promised, but honestly we didnt mind. i loved the fact that it felt like we were actually in thialand and not just a hotel that could be back in melbourne. We also liked the fact that it wasnt an overly large hotel and felt very private and welcoming. Our favourite past time was the swim up pool bar, my fondest memories were sitting in the water joking with the staff and trying all the cocktails.
i would obviously like to try somewhere else on this visit and was hoping people could could give me some advice.
Key themes im looking at:
- Smallish hotel/resort
- Thia Feel (not sterile/bland city hotel)
- Pool Bar a Bonus
- Aiming for around the $100p/n range
