Holiday Inn Resort Phuket

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 1, 2013

This is our 4th stay at this resort and it has everything you need.
Location is great you walk out the front of the resort, cross the road and you are on the beach. a pool in each wing of the Hotel and a kids pool if you are taking them with you.
Dining and shopping at both the front and back entrance of the Hotel.
Wolfgang, the General Manager has been in place since we first went to The Holiday Inn and it shows his efforts of service are kept at a high standard.
Breakfast is excellent and Sams steak house is a must. Staff are excellent and like to have a joke with you if you are willing.
One of my favourite things about the room is they have no Mini Bar. Wierd you might think but what they have is a fridge for you to put your drinks and food you buy from their mini mart down stairs which is the same price as any of the mini marts or 7 Elevens outside the resort. Smart business by them and no expensive Mini Bar bill for you.
We will be back

If you want a day away from Patong Beach head down to Karon Beach, it cost 400 Baht one way and takes about 10-15 minutes by Tuk Tuk. Much nicer beach to swim in than Patong Beach. Less going on too.

A highly recommended hotel on Phuket Island situated amognst the throng of activity at Patong Beach. Extremely welcoming staff who remained friendly throughout the two weeks we were there. Three restaurants within the complex were very good with prices no dearer than other eating places along the beachfront.

Our room had a massive bed (big enough for 4 people!) with the bed linen and bathroom towels being changed every day and the balcony looked out over the busy town. Breakfast was very impressive and although self-service it was never to busy with everything, and I mean everything, you cvould have wanted to eat or drink.

With a tree enclosed swimming pool and plenty of sun loungers together with a good bar service (hot food as well) it is easy to understand why many people stayed by the pool all day.

While we were there it was my partner's birthday and the management delivered her a lovely birthday cake to our room - nice touch!

Room Tip: Leave to the lovely people at the check-in desk

Stayed here again for 10 days in December and Loved every bit of it.
Had an issue with the timeshare touts tracking me down to my room number/hone number, and the manager was unbelievably caring in moving us from a family suite to the Bucksorn wing gratis....We were astounded and super grateful.
Service once again faultless.
Ate lunch most days in sports bar and service/food outstanding.
Had to visit the medical room/nurse with my little one due to virus/sickness and was seen within 3 minutes and advice/medicines dispensed straight away.
Only negative is that once your kids get to 11-12yrs you have to think again about family rooms due to bed sizes.
Don't have a bad word to say about this Holiday Inn.Will we be back..yep,planning our next trip already.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with family room in main wing for the young ones..xbox,tv,dvds,toys For olde...

My two friends and I stayed in the Busakorn Wing and loved every minute of it. The rooms are spacious and we had two opening on to the pool which were excellent. Breakfast was amazing as most ihg hotels are and the staff were very friendly. The position in the heart of Patong is ideal and the guard with the whistle to get you across the road is very helpful. We met two brothers Sun and Mr.M straight across the road from the Busakhorn entrance who were very friendly and don't rip you off. Would certainly stay there again. Have a steak at Sams steak and grill one of the best you will ever have!

Having been to the same hotel for the past 13 years, I can honestly say that I can truly relax as soon as I get there. The staff always welcome us and the Management are always walking around, making sure that everything is running smoothly. I have already booked for next year. The breakfast is brilliant with a wide selection of food. There are happy hours and special promotions during the week So we tend to go back for a final drink at the end of the night. The beach is handy across the road which we are escorted across by a very nice member of staff. Everything for a perfect holiday is close by. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone visiting Phuket.

We stayed at Busakorn Wing pool villa in March 2013 - absolutely awesome!! The staff always go the extra mile to make you feel welcome and always available to help.
Free mini bar every day in the pool villa, Busakorn Wing, we didn't believe them at first, so rang to confirm, mini bar included 2 Singha Beer and 2 Changs as well as other goodies, we requested 4 Singha's instead of 2 and 2, absolutely no problem, the next day there were 4 Singha's as requested.
Sams Steakhouse was the best dining experience we have ever had!! Great location, we hardly left the resort!!

Room Tip: Busakorn Wing Pool Villa, no children allowed, free minibar restock every day, quieter private pool...

My husband and I recently returned home from our fourth trip to Phuket in seven years and once again we stayed in a studio room in the Busakorn wing. We really enjoy this hotel, all the staff are wonderful, the pool is fantastic, the room is very comfortable and breakfast is delicious. There is no longer happy hour at the swim up bar but there is happy hour from 5.00 till 8.00 at The Bar in the main wing. We had a fabulous stay and the only negative comment I can make is that there was a connecting door between our room and the room next door. This let in a lot of sound and we could clearly hear our neighbours talking and were woken up in the morning by their alarm going off.

Overall we love this hotel and will return if we go back to Phuket.
