“Good all round stay”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

Stayed at the Nap at beginning of March, 2012 for two nights before our friends arrived in Patong and we moved to the Burasari.

The NAP is only a couple of years old so rooms, restaurant and overall facilities were good.

We got a really good rate direct with hotel's website which included breakfast. The hotel restaurant had entertainment at night in form of duo, singer and guitar player who were very good.

The location is good and walking distance to beach and other main shopping and entertainment area.

The Nap is a smaller resort best suited for couples, as opposed to families, and if you get a good rate is a good choice.

We booked our stay at The Nap via booking.com which gave us good rates with breakfast included but no option to cancel or amend our booking. At the onset, we were worried about the weather (the weather forecast showed rain and thunderstorms throughout the end of May!) and the risk of another tsunami, but thankfully, the weather was good throughout our stay.

Upon arrival we were informed that the occupancy was low, to which we asked if it was possible for a room upgrade. The hotel staff informed us that the hotel policy does not allow for upgrades - I'm not sure that this is true. They provided us with cold hand towels and pineapple juice as we completed the paperwork for the check in process. Then we were escorted to our room on the 5th floor.

Our room on the 5th floor had a great view of the pool and was nice and quiet, but unfortunately, the water pressure in the shower was poor. We made several complaints about this but the maintenance staff insisted there was nothing wrong with the water pressure. When we went down to the pool for a swim, we found out that the shower by the pool had a strong pressure, and the water pressure in our room could not possibly be deemed "normal." After our swim, we requested to be shown another room so that we could compare the water pressure. We were shown to a room on the 3rd floor where we tested the shower and found that the pressure was much better, so we switched rooms from the 5th floor to the 3rd floor.

The hotel is decorated in a simplistic but elegant manner. There were water features all around the lobby area and it exuded a relaxing ambience. The breakfast buffet was good - it had a good spread of food and our eggs were made to order. The tour agent within the hotel was very good and managed to organize a trip to Pha Nga Bay for us at our request- our trip to Pha Nga Bay was well organized and highly enjoyable!

The mini bar in the hotel was free but the contents were of a limited selection. The mini bar was only stocked with Coca Cola, Sprite and Pineapple Juice from a can.

The staff were generally friendly and helfpul. On our last day, we caught a very early flight home, and one of the staff was kind enough to organize a breakfast box for us so that we could have some breakfast in the cab on the way to the airport - we found this gesture to be very thoughtful and it was much appreciated.

The hotel is conveniently located within Patong. The JungCeylon Mall was approximately 7 minutes away by foot and there are many street stalls nearby so we were fortunate enough to enjoy the local seafood and street food although the prices for the street food were quite highly priced. The hotel itself had a spa but the prices of the spa treatments are quite steep, so we had our foot massages at Oriental De Phuket which was a stone's throw away.

The only issues I take with this hotel is 1) the lack of a laundry bag; 2) the fact that they did not change our bath towels daily; and 3) the fact that they did not change our bed sheets daily. These three issues were disappointing as they are in fact hygiene-related.

Overall, we enjoyed ourselves tremendously and our stay at The Nap was very relaxing as it was during the low season. We would definitely recommend this hotel if you are looking to stay in Patong!

Room Tip: Initially we stayed at Room 504 which had a lovely view of the pool but the water pressure in the sh...

Reservation: i did my reservation through email, agent Giew and Wutt are very friendly and they replied the email very fast.

Location: it's almost the end of the Patong beach. However, it's still a walking distance to places of interest in Patong - ie. Patong beach (~5mins), Jungceylon (~15mins), soi Bangla (~13mins).


Check-in/out: The reception trainee was abit blur and slow during check-in but check-out was quick. The senior receptionist escorted us to the room and brief us the room facilities, I thought it was a sweet touch.

Room: Very clean, bright but calm and comfortable. Love the colour tone of the interior design. The colour tone are in line with the hotel's name, Sea. Room equipped with balcony. There are sofa and coffee table at the balcony for you to chillax,

Toilet: bathroom and 'toilet' are separated. I find it is quite nice. Rain shower in bathroom, water pressure not so strong but acceptable, but the bathroom is abit dimmed. Kind of like the the wooden bathroom floor. Mirror and basin is outside the bathroom (it is in the room, not in the toilet). Basic toiletries provided.

Breakfast: room comes with buffet breakfast at The Nap, very cool breakfast restaurant. Good selection. Love the freshly made fruit juices. champagne and sparkling wine are also available.

Other facilities: Flat TV with decent channels. WiFi is good. Very tiny swimming pool at rooftop with a small bar. Good housekeeping.

Point to note: umbrellas are provided in the room, very considerate. Complimentary drinks bar which will be replenished everyday, i LOVE it!

Conclusion: Recommended if you are looking for a quiet and decent hotel.

Room Tip: only one room type

This is my second stay at The Sea. Just like before, I find the room spacious, clean and comfortable, and the sofa seat at the balcony is lovely to laze around in the evening. The free minibar (replenished daily) is a much appreciated bonus. Wifi is available in the rooms as well as the lobby, but the signal varies at different spots, which could be a little frustrating. The pool, although small, is lovely for a dip and the ambience is relaxing. There's not much of a view as it faces the back of The Nap (the sister hotel just next to it), so if you are there for beautiful sea view, you may have to re-consider.

Nevertheless, the beach is only 5-10mins walk away, the shopping mall Jungceylon and the (in)famous Bangla street is only 10mins walk away, and there's a whole stretch of food stalls near the hotel which served really amazing local fares and fresh seafood. You could choose to rent a bike from the hotel, or a travel agent right next to The Sea, at an affordable rate.

On the morning of the last day of my stay, something went wrong with the water pipes and the whole hotel had no supply of water, thankfully we had no activities planned in the morning, and the water problem quickly resolved by noon.

In terms of quality of room and location, I have nothing but praises. Oak, the supervisor of the service crew, is friendly and easy to talk to. I would definitely be back again.

I returned to this hotel after a very good impression when I first stayed in December 2010 and this stay was no different. Got the rooms under a package at 4900THB + 1000THB/extra bed/night for 2 nights which included one way airport transfer, daily breakfast, complimentary wifi, welcome drinks and fruits, drinks in mini bar.

In one sentence, this hotel is highly recommended!

Airport transfer: Punctual and comfortable.

Breakfast: Breakfast is at The Nap (sister hotel) beside and it was quite a spread. It was at level 6 the first time I was there but having shifted to there, probably to save costs for them, was also good for us guests. The section where a staff prepares fresh fruit juice is also new, as you can select the combination of fruits you want. The standard omelette section also serves daily specials which were wraps and crepes for the two breakfasts I had. Food was good and satisfying. Service was excellent, prompt and very friendly.

Wifi: I had no problems with the wifi whatsoever, it was stable and fast enough for me to access Whatsapp, Twitter and Facebook.

Welcome drinks and fruits: We redeemed it on the last day at level 6 and the drinks was sweet and refreshing, while the fruits were very juicy and fresh.

Drinks in mini bar: Coke, Sprite, pineapple juice, water and something else. Free.

Other than those, the staffs were very friendly! It was very nice to be greeted with smiles each time we returned to the hotel. Rooms were big and spacious, and the beds are very comfortable. There's an open balcony, a nice place to chill. Amenities are new and good. The place was clean.

At level 6 there is a small pool and pool benches to chill, as well as a dining area.

Location wise, it is just a stone's throw away from the beach and about 10 minutes walk to Bangla Street and Jungceylon Shopping Centre. At night, it guarantees a quiet environment to sleep, unless of course you have noisy neighbours which there weren't.

Booked directly through the hotel's website and took their package that includes airport transfers. Was met in the airport by the Hotel driver and a pleasant ride to the Hotel. Was impressed by the relax atmosphere of the hotel lobby. Welcome drinks and staffs gave warm Thai hospitality. Room was big, nice balcony & the cabinet area was really well-designed. I do find the bathroom just slightly dim. My room 210 was had the pool view which was great. Breakfast was very good. Hotel staff even showed us the suites cos we were so impressed by the Hotel that we wanted to make another trip back to this hotel. Location is great & they have free shuttle service to Central festival. Check with hotel staffs for timings.

Two year old hotel, which means rooms and facilities in top condition. Rooms are big and i like the free minibar. Services are ok, i never really felt warmly welcomed though, charm is lacking. Location good in proximity to what you need. Beach 200m, restaurants/shopping 300m, Bangla 600m. Nicely quiet location but still close. New hotel besides is being built now, could result in noise.
As well, the breakfast is more average than special. The usual fruits, cereals a bit of meats and some hot food and the egg counter. But again here, it was not made with love and passion.

Room Tip: take one in the backyard. do not take 212 if you don't want to have people swim besides your roo...
