We have been regularly travelling to Phuket since 1997 and have stayed at a large number of other resorts in the Patong beach area, including those ones which are most notably marketed to Australian travellers through travel agents. We chanced across the Salathai Resort several trips back and have now stayed there for the past 2 years. Without a doubt the Salathai is the best value resort in Phuket and we would never stay anywhere else now. It is not a 5 star luxury resort - but it has all the amenties which we need to make for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. There are only around 40 rooms which are spacious and comfortable and meticulously cleaned. There is just one pool with a children's pool section and a spa - but the pool is fine and you never need to fight for a pool bed. We never usually eat in our hotel because of the plethora of wonderful restaurants and street vendors in the Patong beach area to choose from - however since staying at the Salathai we eat regularly in the resort because the food is fantastic, there is such care and thought which go into the presentation and preparation, and it is so reasonably priced. It is always a really nice atmosphere around the resort with guests from all over the globe and because it is only a small resort, it is very friendly and personal. The staff at the Salathai are just amazing - there is nothing they won't do for you and always with a smile. The location of the Salathai is also great as it is easy walking distance to the entertainment precincts and just a very short stroll down to the beach. You don't walk straight out to the hustle and bustle and all the market stalls and touts. Excellent day spa facilities are available at the Salathai's sister resort (The Nap) and transfers provided. All in all the Salathai really is a hidden little gem and we cannot sing its praises lodd enough. Already booking again for April 2012.
