Looking for recommendations for resorts

Recommended Posts

Howdy expats! Well I have some family coming to visit and they will be bringing some family in their young 20s and they have got the idea of a thai resort sounds like a dream holiday and well when they heard their uncle lived here it was a done deal

 

I have never gone to a resort so can anyone give me some recommendations I just dont trust the online reviews on their sites because you get a lot of fake reviews hopefully some one here can point me in the right direction

The resort would be in or near Phuket patong or rawai area is good

Thanks very much in advance guys!!!

When are they coming and whats the nightly budget for a room?

In the fall and around $100 a night is ok but could go higher if it was worth it

Hotels offer low season prices until around mid-November, so they should be able to get a great four star or even a five star hotel for between $50-$100.

 

They should probably stay in Patong if they enjoy walking distance to lots of nightlife and a big selection of restaurants, with the occasional short drive to karon or kamala for beach swimming days. 

 

Look at the following good ones in Patong: Millennium Patong, Adaman Embrace, Indigo Hotel, Swisshotel Patong, Duangitt Hotel. 

 

If they want to be near to a good swimmable beach, but not too far from Patong nightlife, consider the Sunwing Hotel in Kamala, or Kamala Regent condo rental in Kamala, or the Movenpick Karon or Novotel Karon.

Closed a year ago! And was very run down!

 

OP, you'll probably find that, like you, most expats rarely go to resorts in Phuket as we live here!

 

Come before November 1st and you'll find bargain prices at many resorts. Look at the reviews on Booking.com rather than Tripadvisor; you can't post reviews unless you've stayed there. Personally I think they should decide where in Phuket they want to stay first.

The one on Booking.com is a different place. The original Little Mermaid, with a pool, changed its name to Kata Resort or something like that, and closed over a year ago. The one on Booking.com is a guesthouse in a different location; definitely not a resort!

little mermaid was never what i'd call a resort

Just look at agoda, plug in ur area and price range read the reviews.  As to place a comment u need to have stayed there, so MUCH better than TA> and you wont get 15 year out of date comments like from KC 🙂

Holiday inn and Merlin always are top rated

 

those of us that live here dont go to resorts as we know you never get what ur paying for..

Its empty now on the island, so great deals can be had
