“Location Location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

The Banthai was just what we wanted for our holiday in Phuket. The room we had was a good size with a king bed. We had the superior room which overlooks the pool. The alcohol in the mini bar was very affordable and was cheaper than purchasing at the swim up bar. The swim up bar was a great feature and the pool areas were perfect. We did notice the lack of young children at the resort which was exactly what a young couple like ourselves wanted. The hotel is located on the main beach front but down a small alley which is great as it eliminates the noise at night time but you are still right in the mix of everything and walking distance to just about everything. We didnt use a taxi or tuk tuk once. The breakfast was great with a mix of foods from all over the world to suit all travellers.. feeding the cats too was a bonus :) The only downside to the stay here was that the reception staff were very limited with their english speaking which made communication hard sometimes.

Loved this place! I came a day later than friends and managed to by pass the over priced cabs at the airport by sharing with some other people. Of course we each got dropped off and I secrectly I wished I was the first to get dropped off (I was the last) just so everyone could see where I was staying! I was soo disappointed at all of their places and was hoping mine was not lying from the pictures!

Fortunately pics were correct it was SO nice! Grand entrance, everywhere very stylish and clean, loved the various pools and the bar girls were fab, asking to take pics with us loved them! It was nicely tucked back from the main road so not loud at all and w/o the litter that filled the main road so alot of spots too take pics for fb or insta ;) Plus was SO near to the strip of clubs which we took full advantage of !!!

Room was fine there were three of us so one slept on the sofa bed (opposite, just under the TV). The cleaning ladies were also fabulous! I'm a clean freak and the room was impeccable. I sometimes felt bad as being all girls, choosing outfits, hair and makeup in one room = a state but when we returned after long days of site seeing, eating and drinking it was always pristine with clothes folded :) Plus it was my freinds birthday so we informed the desk and she was suprised with a complementary cake and candles brought to the room and cute decoration spread on her bed! Also the gym was great! (had to keep up the bikini bods) wish the jacuzzi was cleaner however as would have loved to use it!

I would recommend not going to the lady in the lobby for day trips etc as there are always other people you can them from for much cheaper! One guy drove us to animal kingdom, and another place where we rode elephants, he waited for us to finish and drove us back for a v.cheap price (can't quite remember but was cheap!) And the taxi home was through him at a cheaper price than the hotel. But of course be careful who you are trusting!

Also if you need to make a phone call I was told at recepetion the room's phone wouldn't charge but it DID. Use the desk one I witnessed a man use it the day before but the lady I asked did not let me.

Will def be back but next time with the boyfriend x

Room Tip: Two single beds and a sofa-bed under TV. Was perfect for us 3 girls, however we did all have large s...

My partner and I stayed here for 7 nights (last week actually). Great location. Close to the major shopping center: Jungcyclon, Big C (supermarket) and Robinsons. Bangla Rd is a short stroll away. And cross the road after you walk out of the hotel is Patong Beach.

Staff were very helpful. Especially the white English speaking chap. Didn't get his name unfortunately. But he pointed out a couple of beaches and shopping centers to visit as they were of interest to us.

The toilet water levels were quite higher than Western ones. I learned that you need to flush twice in a row. Otherwise when you go to the toilet again its as if you never flushed the first time around!!

Overall, a great stay due to location and staff service levels. Couldn't fault anything else really.

We stayed at the resort for 7 nights, the staff on arrival were welcoming and we were given a drink while we organised check-in. We upgraded to a pool room which was on the ground floor, overlooking the pool. The rooms were ok but were a bit smaller than we were expecting. There were 3 swim up pool bars and the bar staff were awesome. The breakfast was amazing and the staff were friendly. The gym was good, although it was a little warm in there (that was before the workout). The location was great, and there were restaurants and shops within the resort. Overall it was a great hotel.

Stayed here in April, 2014 had a very nice time. Staff were more than helpful, room clean every day with fresh flowers. Breakfast was just fantastic with everything you could ask for and wonderful service. Room service was fast. Pool area clean and swim up pool is stocked well. Would highly recommend Banthai.
Thank you Simone and Michael K

Room Tip: A room on the ground floor leading out to the pool

Highly recommend BanThai Beach Resort & Spa for its lovely kind & welcoming staff, enjoyed the swim-up bars inside the pool, bar staff were very funny too.
Rooms were ideal & breakfast had a large variety & it has a beautiful lobby entrance.
Location was amazing, directly across the road from the beach & walking distance to dozens of surrounding restaurants & shopping at your door step, don't let that deter you thou as the hotel is hidden down a laneway guarded by security, so noise from surrounding nightlife is not heard.
i look forward to returning to Banthai in the future :)

We experienced an awesome 12 night holiday at The Banthai Beach Resort with four other family's.

On arrival we were greeted with friendly staff who checked us all in without any problems. Once check in was completed we were walked to our room by a staff member. Our room was on the ground floor, we had a Deluxe Twin. it was beautiful, we had the room service daily and turn down service which was lovely, the lady's making up the rooms were very friendly too.

All the staff we dealt with were very hospitable, especially Coco, Jump Jump and all the other bar and breakfast staff . The staff made sure there were pool activities, which was fantastic. All the older kids had a ball with being able to play volleyball in the pool.

Coco also went to extremes, we told him what we wanted to do and he organised our taxi pickup with (Charlie) who was awesome too. He also organised us to be picked up for the No. 6 Restaurant up the hills, which was a fantastic night.... It's a must experience the trip and the food was fantastic too.

Overall our experience at the Banthai Beach Resort was awesome and we would definitely stay here again and we highly recommend the BANTHAI BEACH RESORT!!!!!!!
