Stayed at ban thai for 7 days stayed in a deluxe room 1109. The room was spotless,plenty of room for us and all my wifes shopping. The pool was gorgeous, always clean. The breakfast was fantastic changing everyday, the staff were helpful and Jai the pool bartender was great! The resort is central to everything and only a few minutes walk to Bangla Road, close enough to stagger home. Cant fault this resort at all and cant wait to go back!!!

Hi
Just back from Banthai. Found the hotel very ordinary considering a 4 star property. Stayed in superior room which was small. The wash basin was not in bathroom but rather outside the bathroom in the room. The bathroom also had a sewrage type smell.....Staff on reception limited english, difficult to communicate. Being 4 star l would expect their english be better considering amount of tourists. Nothing about the hotel made me feel like l was in thailand. I believe lacked any Thailand type ambience
Hotel good location, nice breafast.

A nice hotel, reasonably maintained and in an excellent location. Easy access to beach and shops. Great pool and amenities. Room was good but starting to show some wear. Design is elegant and modern. A great value for money choice in Phuket.

My wife and I have just returned after 9 nights staying at the Banthai. We had a ground floor Deluxe Room and it was great, only about 5 metres to a lovely clean pool with swim up bar. The rooms are not overly big but are more than suitable for two adults. Rooms were clean and tidy and maintained every day by the caring staff, a nice touch is the turning down of the sheets and putting a flower on the bed each evening.

The location is beyond anything in the area, it is set within 100m of Patong beach and all the shopping and street sellers are 75 metres away. We enjoyed many a night at the Port Bar which is part of the resort, they had great meals and the entertainment by "Manilla Machine" and the other band were great.

Staff at the Hotel were all helpfull and nothing was any trouble - I have noted on other reviews this has not been the case. (I think some are hard to please). So if you an easy going aussie I would recommend the Banthai without doubt.

I stayed at Banthai for 4 nights on my back to Australia from Cambodia. I chose a pool access room which, apart from the musty smell, was well appointed with free wi-fi access and all the inclusions you might expect. The breakfast is good. I found some of the reception staff to be not particularly helpful. The checkout procedure seems to take forever.

You could be very unlucky with your choice of room. The whole of Patong Beach is crawling with young, loud Aussies and Brits looking to get wasted. My room, 2117 was quiet but you could score a room near the pool bars which would be fatal. Ask for a room in one of the blocks away from what seems to be the main pool area to the right of reception.

Patong Beach is unbelievably ghastly with fat middle-aged male sex tourists trawling through the streets with young Thai girls by heir side. The beach is not that great and the shopping is focused on t-shirts, fake Calvin Klein underwear and sarongs.

I would still recommend the hotel as it seems one of the best ones in Patong but would urge discerning visitors to Phuket to consider an alternative area in which to stay. I certainly don't recommend Patong for families. Each to their own - Phuket is just not for me I discovered; others may find it differently.

Location excellent. Right in the centre of Patong yet you feel as if you are miles away once you walk down the access lane to the hotel. Right opposite the beach, easy walk to markets, Jungceylon and Bangla Rd. Loved the pool access rooms (you don't need to pay extra for the direct access rooms, these are practically direct access anyway and much more private. Swim up bar is great and found the staff and service excellent. As for the chef who cooks the eggs at breakfast.....yum!

This is a beautiful resort, central to Patong Beach but they are the only positive points. We stayed in two connecting superior rooms for 10nights. On arrival we had to wait over two hours for our rooms. The reception staff are not very helpful and need further communication/hospitality training. The walls,doors and floors in the rooms were dirty, though the beds/linens were clean! The first night we woke to guests swearing and fighting at 4am. Several times in the pool, we had to leave or go to another pool, because of drunk guests swearing loudly from 10am onwards...so beware if you have children. Breakfast were decent, room service was good.
