Salathai Resort

Reviewed 8 August 2008

Hubby is the one who is very eager to go to Thailand. His colleagues, who are Arabs like him, keep on raving about the beauty of the country so off we go.

We did not want to spend a big chunk of our travel budget on the hotel so after reading the positive reviews on Salathai, we decided to give it a go.

Details of our experience are as follows:

Pick up from the airport to the hotel and back - The hotel charges around 500 baht higher than the average taxi but we never regret requesting for this service. It's wonderful not to worry about finding a ride and know where your hotel is located. We just sat in the car, relaxed and enjoyed the greenery.

Hotel staff - They are all nice and accommodating. Always smiling.

Food and beverage - Loved the fresh juice. The breakfast is not excellent but for the price we paid for the hotel, we cannot complain. The only thing I noticed is that the amount of bacon/sausages that they cook for people staying in superior room is a lot less (2 pcs only) than the others - no idea if people who are staying in the deluxe room were given more or only the same as ours.

Location - Just perfect. It's around 5 mins away from the party scene in Bangla road and you can walk towards Phuket beach in 2 minutes. It's a pretty quiet hotel - you can almost feel that you are detached from the rest of the world.

Pool - Not that big but we enjoyed the dip because there were only few of us in it.

Shower - The water pressure is very strong, you would never want to leave the bathroom again.

Our room at the 3rd floor - We liked the view from the top. This is a big challenge for those who do not like to exercise because you have to take a flight of stairs all the way from the ground floor.

Ants - yes, there are ants in the room. For some reason, they refuse to leave despite my husband's attempts to annihilate them. Apart from the bacon/sausages issue, this is the only thing that we did not like in our 7 day stay at the hotel.

Over all - Highly recommended. Worth giving it a try. Whether you are a budget traveller or someone who wants to experience a luxurious holiday. Who needs to stay in a very fancy resort anyway when you can find everything in Salathai?

I stayed for 10 days in a Junior Suite Room, the size of the room was ok, the furniture are very old and some of it damaged (the hotel is very old and not in a good condition), the room was full of ants and I asked to be changed but the other rooms had the same problem, I was promised that the room will be sprayed but nothing happened, so I bought insect spray and sprayed the room daily. The hotel have no elevator so it is hard for older people to stay in the top floors, most of the rooms are located near the street so it is noisy and the noise from the near by bars will keep you awake tell 3 am, the staff were very friendly.

Great stay at the Salathai. Clean rooms and lovely pool. But breakfast are very minimal. You will need to order the eggs, bacon, ham or sausage on your own and servings are of average portion. Good for normal eater. e.g 1 cocktail sausage, 2 bacons n 2 eggs are served. If possible, get the deluxe room as they hav bigger bathroom with tubs and more space. Probably the superior is around 24sqm while the deluxe is at 30sqm. For triple sharing, best to get the deluxe room. Bonus for deluxe room as it's on the ground floor so no climbing on stairs n direct access to the lovely pool. Overall a lovely stay for it's convenient locations, close to the beach, lovely rooms and pool, and friendly staffs.

I spent a week in patong beach staying 4 nights at salathai and 2 nights at patong resort. Salathai resort has absolutely fantastic staff!!! Everyone was very friendly and helpfull, a real plus for the resort. The room was nice and for the price I paid, I got what I expected, not luxury but everything I needed. The bathroom was a bit overdone with the blue tiles but still practical. I did have some small ants in my room for 2 days but only a few and it didn't bother me. I had a deluxe room on the ground floor that opens onto the pool, definatly the way to go. Pool is nice. I felt there wasn't a great deal of privacy as it was a small hotel and all rooms face the middle of the complex. They do not charge to bring a girl back with you either. All up a good resort that is not top of the range but not a high price so you get what you pay for. I would definatly stay there again.

Stayed at the Salathai for 6 nights while touring south east asia

Went a bit over budget in Singapore so decided to book somewhere cheaper for my stay in Phuket (the room was less than £30/night).

Got a free transfer from the airport (about 45 minutes). The resort is fairly basic, the rooms all have AC but everywhere else (reception, restaurant) is out in the open. There is a small pool in the centre with grassed areas around it.

Check in was very efficient and I had a room on the second (top) floor. The room was of a good size with a balcony overlooking the pool. The room itself was clean and tidy but there was mould on the tiling in the bathroom, which detracted from the overall appearance.

The Salathai is ideally located about 100m from the Beach and about 400m from the nightlife in Bangla road. The only drawback is the amount of street vendors who try to sell you something on the way.

The hotel is exactly look same like the photo that share by other traveller. Very well maintance, clean and nice. It located close everything but it is so quiet when u step in the resort. It have a very nice pool, from morning to evening. The spacious deluxe room is enough for me, very clean and nice for everything. The food is ok too. It only 3 mins to go for the beach. So not to be worry. It very near. this is located at the north part of patong beach. South part ( the pub road) will be more happening. But it just need to walk around 10 mins to reach for everything.
