I went to the Banthai with 2 of my best friends for 9 nights and we LOVED it. It was my first overseas trip, so had certain expectations, and was not disappointed at all. I would go again and have recommended this hotel to a couple I know who are going to Patong! We arrived close to midnight, but staff were there ready to greet us with the famous Thai hospitality. We were treated so wonderfully.
My only minor annoyance was that we asked for a room with 2 queen/double beds, as we had 3 people in the room, but we ended up with 2 single beds and a sofa type bed. We went to speak to reception about it before we unpacked anything and they said that WAS the 3 person room. They couldnt get us into another room as requested, a minor annoyance but it didnt stop or ruin the holiday at all.
The room was clean and modern, a little small for 3 people but honestly we didnt spend alot of time in the room, so it wasnt an issue. Our room had a view looking over 1 of the 3 pools, below us was a pool access room. I cant rave about the swim up bar enough! The staff were so friendly and funny, they make the best cocktails. The pool was rather quiet and relaxing, the busiest it got was about 20 or so people. No kids either. We did go in the low season so maybe that had something to do with it. The gym was great, sadly didnt try the spa services, but it looked beautiful!
The buffet breakfast was always very good, the egg chef who makes your eggs exactly how you want them was great. Fresh fruit, smoothies, juice, bacon eggs and even mashed potatos and stor fry lol. I loved breakfast. We never ate lunch or dinner at the buffet so I cant comment on that, we tried the restaurants around Patong.
The location was just perfect. Right in the centre of Patong, stumbling distance to the nightlife area of Bangla Rd. Very close to other great restaurants and bars, you dont need a tuk tuk, its all within walking distance.
I loved my stay here and will go again in a heart beat. I read some reviews here before I left and was worried as some didnt paint a nice picture, was VERY relieved to find it wasnt the case at all. Loved it.
