This is my second stay here at the Lemongrass Patong after approx 13 months. I believe the management has changed from my stay here last year, however it still remains my favourite as the service & quality remains the same Perhaps even better!!
Firstly, Phuket is not really a place to be staying indoors as you have loads to do such as driving/ riding around to various beaches, Jungceylon Mall, Shooting Range, eateries scuba etc.. So the cost for a room here is really dirt cheap keeping in mind the rooms & service they offer are extremely clean & comfortable to come back & sleep over at nights.
Secondly, this hotel is situated close to Patong beach as well as a drivable/ ridable distance to other great beaches that Phuket has to offer such as Kata, Karon etc.. I prefer the other beaches to Patong as they are much more cleaner and less crowded.
Thirdly, Night life is in Patong so if you are someone looking for that, then hey you are still close to it keeping in mind the price that you would pay.
Fourthly, step out of the hotel & you have a Family Mart (24/7 store) that you can fetch for anything from Alcohol to First Aid :) and everything that you may need or expect from a general store. So cheers to that!! Literally 5 seconds to get to the store for all your needs.
Fifthly, you need to rent a bike to enjoy around in Phuket (I prefer the bike to Tuk Tuk's or Taxi's) and as tourists we will be apprehensive to leave our passports around with rentals on the streets even though it is safe to do so (I guess its just in the head :) but the hotel offers bike rentals and you need not pledge your passport. So that really works great for me and sure for most of us. However, The hotel does charge 50 Baht more than the street rentals for bike's but I still believe that is much better than having to mess around with your passport.
Lastly, The breakfast is great, the service is outstanding (ask for anything sane and it is arranged for or at least they try their best). Ride back to the airport is pretty much a deal too (We were four adults with loads of luggage and got a Prado at just 900 Baht, however if you are willing to share a minivan which would go around picking up people from around the place would work out much cheaper).
CONCLUSION: Absolutely worth the money, very clean rooms & bathroom, functional AC which really gets cold at nights unlike some dingy ones I have come across for this amount that you pay, excellent location, 5 second access to alcohol or provisions 24/7, proximity to Patong beach, Night life & Jungceylon Mall. What more can one ask for!!!
A stunner for me - 10/10!!!! Enjoy readers!!!
