We struggled to find a hotel on Patong Beach that had a swim-up pool bar, until we came across the Banthai Beach Resort & Spa. With 3 pools all with swim-up pool bars, it was just what we were looking for. The service was brilliant. We were checked in fast and efficiently, given cool towels and a drink on arrival then shown to our rooms with a complete run-through of everything in our rooms (eg: electronic switchboard control of lights, air-con, alarm etc. We were very impressed from the moment we arrived.
The pool bar staff were very friendly and fed us free snacks and played Jenga and Connect 4 with us to keep us entertained. The cocktails didn't go astray either :) (recommend the Bananrama) The hotel was very quiet considering we were on the main street.
The location was absolutely perfect as were wanting to be in the heart of things without having to catch a Tuk Tuk everywhere we went. With Starbucks, a Tailor, Pizza & Pasta restaurant and a cocktail bar at the entrance of the hotel, what more could you want? Hungry Jacks, Subway and McDonalds plus many roadside food stalls are all within 2 mins of the hotel if you're wanting a snack.
I highly recommend a restaurant called Sweet which is in a small shopping mall 2 streets to the right when you leave the hotel. The thai food was amazing! Thai Green Curry was our favourite - but other meals we had were also very, very nice - not to mention CHEAP!! The Curry cost us about AUD$3 (75 baht)!!!!!
We did miss the lagoon style pool that resorts usually have, however the pools were nice and there weren't too many people around as they were spread over the 3 different wings with individual pools - which was great.
Overall this was a great hotel and we would definitely stay there again.
