Banthai Beach Resort & Spa
Ranked #27 of 331 Hotels in Patong
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 4, 2014

After the usual hot,sweaty trip from the airport the "Banthai" was a bit like the proverbial "Oasis". We had a very friendly welcome, quick and efficient registration, escort to our room and a cold drink and towel.
The room was excellent, air-conditioning was great: had a great nights sleep: then in the morning renovations above us. Management immediately moved us to another room only downer the AC did not work quite as well.
Breakfast was include in tariff. Very good selection with an entertaining chef "the Eggman" who did some great frypan tricks to wake you up. Bonus - excellent Espresso coffee machine for single order coffee unlike the stewed coffee you get most other places.
One small criticism, 3 of our party wanted to extend their stay and unfortunately it was at full retail and the staff had NO discretion to apply original discount: this is a bit hard to fathom in low season with around 40 percent occupancy.
Generally the hotel was very clean and the staff okay but once again could do with some better English skills at reception.
Food and beverages were moderately priced for a "Resort" hotel. Good stay and would use again

This our 2nd visit to the BanThai and we love it, we have stayed in a few places around Patong but find ourselves returning here. It is central to all the action, beach is across the street, pools are great, service is excellent, included breakfast is better than most other resorts thanks to Mr Egg. We look forward to returning to the BanThai again next year.

Just return form 2 weeks at the Banthai. Great hotel. We have been visiting Thailand for the last 5 years and this was our first time at the Banthai and we will be returning back to this hotel. Great location. We had a pool access room in block 2, room was spacious and very private. All staff were very friendly and helpful . Great choices available for breakfast and the barista bar was good as well. The gym was also well equipt. Would highly recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Block 2 is the non smoking rooms however smoking allowed on the patio and around the pool area. Room...

We had a deluxe pool room where you stepped off the patio and slipped into the pool with your own private steps and spa bench. Huge deep bath with two different shower heads to use. Comfortable bed. So relaxing yet so close to everything. We had daily buffet breakfast which was delicious with a good range of food types and loved the egg man who cooked it however you wanted it. Lovely friendly staff. Down a private driveway with security staff who saluted us each time. Jack and Tim in the pool bars were such great fun with the best advice on where to eat and what was and was not worth seeing. Jack even organized a trip for the boys to the boxing with ring side seats cheaper than anyone else could. Easy walking distance to the best restaurant in Patong - Sabai Sabai, Bangla Road and the major shopping centre Jungceyclon. Lovely friendly Thai people selling everything in the streets but definitely worth checking everyones prices and bartering as there is a huge variance in prices for the same items. One guy wanted 500 baht for 1 pair of boardies and the next guy wanted 200 baht for the exact same shorts - then made them even cheaper when we bought 5 pairs. We went back the next day and bought some more and he still gave us the same price. The Banthai is a great location. We had a 90 minute massage at the resort (you get 10% off when staying there) and it was amazing. The only disappointment was after we had checked out and were sitting in another room with our daughter who was staying longer, they accused us of stealing a pillow. We walked straight back into the room which gave them a fright and then they changed their minds and said we had 3 soft and 1 hard pillow so we must have swapped pillows with another room? We stayed in there until the house manager came and confirmed there had been a mix up.This was the only sour note of the entire trip so really unsure exactly what they were trying to do. I believe they were going to try and charge us for a pillow thinking we had already checked out as they certainly got a fright when they realized we were still in the resort. I would suggest you call them to the room to check everything, walk out with them and then hand them the key to your room. Other than that, a fantastic place to stay.

We had a very pleasant stay at this beach resort , it has a perfect location very close to everything in Patong 5 mins walk from bangla road where most of the bars and pubs are located 7 mins Walk from the shopping mall , services and food were excellent , staff are very welcoming and helpful . Rooms are tidy and nicely decorated . If you are ever wondering where to stay and have a very convenient location this hotel is undoubtedly excellent, despite of its busy lobby this place has a nice vibe and the pool bar is a nice place to chill at

I recently stayed at the Ban Thai with my partner and family. We had four deluxe pool rooms. This was my second stay at the Ban Thai and I could not fault it. The rooms are great and have everything you need. The location is ideal, walking distance to restaurants, night clubs, shops and the beach. The highlight of the Ban Thai was the service from the front office and rooms division staff. We had to cut our trip short as there was a death in the family back in Australia and the staff were so understanding and accomodating and showed that they really care about their guests. I would recommend the Ban Thai to anyone as it is the perfect place to stay in Patong.

Great first impression upon checkin. Greeted with cold face towels and drinks.
Our room was great, you opened the door and the pool was almost at your feet.
The wonderful bar staff always make sure you had some complimentary fruit or popcorn, and the swim up bar was also great. Some of the best cocktails I've ever had.
A stand out was Jack, one of the incredible staff members. He was a highlight to our trip and a favourite amongst everyone staying at the ban Thai.
He always entertained us at the pool bar, with games and stories, and gave such great advice about what to do and see. On many occasions he pointed is in the right direction and helped us to organized day trips.
We went with a big group of friends, and at the end we all came together and gave him a large tip and thank you card.
That in itself speaks volumes about just how great he made our experience.
The room was also lovely and modern, had great aircon, and was always cleaned and replenished with fresh towels.
It was also in the perfect location. Close enough to Bangla road, but far enough way that you couldn't hear all of the mayhem going on there at night.
I would HIGHLY recommend staying here. LOVED it!
