“On a hill in Patong”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

A nice location on a hill. Steep climb to the hotel but they have a shuttle service so not so bad. Nice pool with three levels to chill out at. The reception desk was very helpful in arranging for a late check-out. A complimentary cake was offered to us as it was one of our birthdays.

Our third time in less than 12 months a great Hotel, great staff very clean, The location is great all within walking distance and away from the noise of the main Tourist area, at the gate of the Hotel is a cash point, Severn elleven Pharmacy all you require to make life easy, Tuk Tuk and Taxis at the gate of the Hotel and the beach just 200 yards away could not be better.

Would recomend every time, not the cheapest but you are paying for a bit of quality.

My husband and I purchased an accommodation deal through Deals.com a week ago and then contacted the Novotel to book 8 days in January 2014. The Novotel took over 24 hours to reply to my request and it was that there were "no more rooms available in January 2014". I went on the website and there were clearly plenty of vacancies. I actually rang the Reservations Manager in Phuket from Melbourne and explained that I couldn't go any time other than January 2014, as that is when our holidays are. I also explained that I had seen that there were clearly vacancies at that time. They said that it was not possible to accommodate us. I'm really disappointed about this and I believe they could have surely done more to accommodate us, given that there were plenty of rooms available. This is definitely not good customer service and probably a good reason not to stay at this hotel.

After over 30 visits to Penang Malaysia we discovered Phuket and the Novotel Beach Resort.
From checkin the wonderful experience happened with cold towels and a cold drink and beinging escorted to our room for the next 18 nights by the front desk lady.

The room was great and we had the most wonderful view of the bay from our large balcony. The mattress was very good and we would have loved to be able to take it home with us because it was just so comfortable.

All the staff are just the best ever and from the gardener to the front office they all talk and get to know you after the second or third day. There is one special mention for our room lady Pakasorn who always went out of her way to help.

On day 2 a vase with orchids arrived and were then changed every 2 or 3 days and the ice bucket was always refilled with fresh ice for the JD every day.

The pools were always inviting and we never had a problem getting the sun lounges and towels each morning.

The gardens around the hotel are magnificent and always being looked after.

There was never a problem with the hill from the road to reception as the bell boys were always happy to help with the shuttle up or down.

Had one experience that I don't know how... It was my Birthday and I know that Hotels always photocopy the passports but this night we decided to eat in and go to the BBQ buffet. We did not book and just walked in. Halfway through our meal 3 of the wait staff walked up to the table with a cake and candles and sang Happy Birhday. My wife swears she had said nothing..

We did get to meet Mr Choo the owner of the Novotel hotels in Patong and he invited us to the guest cocktail party and he personally delivered the invite to our room. At the party we met senior staff and Shafar the general manager who is a very nice GM.

I do have one very small complaint the baked beans at breakfast are peanuts in tomato sauce and this could be a problem with someone with a peanut allergy..

So after 18 nights at the Novotel yes we will be back and have now forgotten about Penang.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that Pakasorn looks after. Block 5

Rooms are old and some of the views are really bad
Service was poor and atitude of management was not good.
Breakfast was an organised mess.
Food was good but drinks at the bar very expensive compared to what you coud have along the beach or even top resturants.
The new year function that waas organised by the hotel and was a must attend and added to your room rate was over crowded and you waited forever for drinks. Most people left early and did not wait for the fireworks. For the price one pays there must be better value phuket

Room Tip: If you have a real sea view it is ok or you might as well be in a low budget hotel in the middle of...

So happy with the location of the hotel, bit elevated (safe for tsunami) :) and walkable to beach area. Staff's were excellent, friendly, and helpful. Food price bit high compare with in the area....but some choices around ( food shops, spa). Interior bit oldish than expected, over all very happy during our stay. Recommended!!!

Room Tip: Can request a room bit far from generator area and always request for a transport from hotel.
