The establishment is located on the Bay of Bangtao, also called Laguna Beach. It is approximately fourty minutes away from the airport by car. To get to Phuket Town, you should expect a half an hour ride to cover the 15.5 miles that separate the hotel from the town.
There are 243 rooms distributed in two different ways. The first set are gathered in two units and only one level, the second set are scattered in the garden, as small traditional Thai pavilions. The decor here is rather simple, but it still remains elegant. The walls and the white floor make a good contrast with the furniture and the clear wood ornaments. They all have a spacious balcony or a terrace for those on the ground floor. Amenities: television, air conditioning, safe, mini-bar with tea and coffee set, direct international line and room service from 10.30 am to 10 pm. As for the bathroom, there are no surprises but here, cleanliness is respected. A hair dryer, robes and welcoming products are available.
The Bangtao Beach Resort needs a slight renovation but the reception here is very warm. The external concrete facade is not very neat. The entrance hall is already nicer because it is very spacious even if it lacks some cheerfulness. Three lounge areas are located in front of the reception with maroon wicker sofas, adorned with orange cushions. The reception is built-in on the wall, behind a clear wooden counter. The establishment has two rather nice pools. There are dolphin shaped fountains arranged around. You can also see drawings of dolphins on the floor of the pool. The place is nice, however it is a bit kitsch. The Bangtao has a spa which belongs the Thai Chakras Spa chain. Four massage rooms are gathered in a calm and gentle location. A small boutique allows you to take with you the products used by the masseuses. You can especially enjoy the pleasures of the traditional thai massage!
Food and drink
The Bagtao Beach Resort has two restaurants. The Jumba is a restaurant a la carte for lunch and dinner. It offers international cuisine, Thai cuisine, barbecue or even seafood. The furniture is wooden, placed under a pergola. The place is nice but it can be noisy sometimes. There is no special decoration. The Beach Restaurant serves the three meals of the day but this time as a buffet. Additionally, it is located inside the room open to the outside. It has a beautiful view of the sea, however it is rather dull. Finally, in case of thirst, come to the Lobby Bar from 4 pm to 1 am.
Even if the wooden deckchairs are not placed right on the sand, the hotel is located right in front of the beach. The deckchairs are placed on the grass of the hotel but it seems like their number is a bit short for the number of guests in the hotel. The beach is slightly crowded but it is not very noisy. It is covered with sand and the water is not dirty but a bit cloudy. On the other hand, the bay is sheltered and the current is not strong.
The Bangtao Beach Resort and Spa belongs to the Best Western Premier hotel chain. You will find a variety of shops located in the surroundings of the hotel. The hotel does not have an boat club but you will find some near the beach. It offers a variety of activities and especially sailing and kayaking.
Luxury, isolation, exclusivity: in an exceptional environment, the Chedi interprets a high standard partition which makes it one of the most beautiful hotels in Phuket. After the tidal wave that affected Phuket on 26th December 2004, the Chedi suffers minimum damages on a few bungalows and the beach restaurant, but the hotel works normally.
The Laguna Beach Resort is a beautiful and big infrastructure built in the splendid setting of Phuket lagoon. It has an impeccable comfort and all equipment and services necessary for a nice stay. Couples or families, the satisfaction is guaranteed.
The Sheraton is the biggest infrastructure in Phuket. This hotel has impressive dimension and is located in the Phuket lagoon. It combines a lot of comfort, luxury, equipment and quality of the services.
Just like its twin establishments, the Kamala Beach and the Patong Beach, the Courtyard Phuket at Surin Beach is definitively a family hotel. The children's club is a true paradise for kids: it's built on several levels and offers all sorts of activities. Located at the heart of the hotel, parents are never far. Bought in 2008 by the Marriott group, this is a well kept establishment despite having been around for a long time. However, the lack of facilities will prove disappointing to sports enthusiasts. The hotel isn't exactly a seaside establishment, but the beach is relatively close.
The Courtyard Phuket at Kamala Beach is perfect for families, as seen in the facilities its children's club has to offer. Different areas have been set up to cater to several age categories and the workshops on offer are sure to delight children and adults alike. As for comfort, the hotel has also risen to the challenge: all of the rooms are suites. However, the beach is some 400m from the hotel and the path leading to it runs parallel to the road. Plus, the fact that guests have to pay to use the deckchairs is regrettable.
It is difficult if not impossible not to be charmed by this calm and relaxing place. The Manathai is a superb boutique hotel, open since 2006. Its unique decoration is much more refined than in certain grand palaces. However, you do not come here for the organised activities, as there are not any. Nevertheless, couples will be delighted to stay there. A beautiful success!
Located near Karon beach, the Woraburi is a small comfortable town hotel with no facilities other than a pool and a restaurant. Nonetheless, it is still an ideal departure point for exploring the town on foot. There are lots of shops next to the hotel, but if shopping isn't your thing and you prefer to laze around on the beach, there is a public beach that you can go to but you will have to walk across the road to get to it, as is the case with all the beaches in Thailand. Moreover, there are no deck chairs or parasols set up for the hotel guests on the beach.
The Karon Beach has the major advantage of being built directly on Karon beach itself. Its small size is another advantage, given that it only has 80 rooms, although these are unfortunately a little on the small side. You will also be pleased to hear that the restaurant serves delicious food and offers magnificent views.
With incontestable features - a golf course, a very high level of service, accommodation of very high category - , the Banyan Tree imposes itself without difficulty as one of the most luxurious establishments in Phuket.
The Anantara Phuket Villas boasts truly peaceful, serene surroundings, and is the kind of place you'd come solely to relax. It consists of a series of villas with a private pool; you really would be hard-pressed to find a better place to get away from it all. The staff is also very attentive and the service personalised. Although the majority of the clientele is made up of couples, children are also welcome; there is even a special club for them. The complex faces northwest, so you'll get to enjoy some beautiful sunsets...
Here is the kind of hotel where you think to spend peaceful holidays, quietly sat on your terrace or on the beach with a good book... The Trisara opened in November 2004. It is then a beautiful hotel, isolated from the rest of the island but especially from the rest of the world...
Opened since 2002, the Evason Phuket is a quality establishment. The hotel extends on a property of 158 acres. Families will be happy to know that the hotel offers a children club. And couples will have space for their privacy...
The Sala Phuket was definitely one of our favourite hotels in Phuket. This splendid establishment is a true haven of peace, both in terms of its architectural qualities and in terms of the tranquillity it offers. It's the perfect love nest for couples, but the hotel also welcomes children, although there is no entertainment on offer. The standard rooms, called the Balcony Rooms, intentionally come in limited numbers. This is for good reason, as it would be a shame to come here without enjoying the superb villas with their private pools. The Sala Phuket opened in 2008 and has many successful years to look forward to!
The Movenpick Karon Beach of Phuket is open since 20th July 2007. It is
the former Crown Plaza. The establishment is composed of big living spaces
where guests are not crammed. It has the biggest children
club on Phuket island: families will be seduced!
The JW Marriot hotel is one of the biggest infrastructures in Phuket. This luxurious hotel combines a big quantity of equipment, quality services and impeccable comfort in a nice well-ventilated setting.
