“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

I booked the room through Agoda at quite reasonable prices. The resort is located north side of Pating beach. It is about 10 minutes walk to Jungceylon Shopping Mall, 6 minutes to Soi Bangla, 3 minutes to the beach and 3 minutes to the nearest 7-11 shop. The hotel provide standard American breakfast. Local dishes such as PadThai or other noodles are available at about 90baht onwards. The room is clean especially the bathroom, with basic amenities provided as well. Swimming pool and jacuzzi are also available. The front desk officers are very helpful and always with a big smile. The best experience was provision of umbrella and also helping with luggage from our room when we were about to check-out. If you need a massage, there is a few located within 10metres from the resort but I personally recommend Anitha Message.

Room Tip: Ask for room further away from the main road to have a good quiet sleep.

6 days into our 1st Thai holiday, came here with friends on their recommendation, what a fantastic place. Fabulous caring, friendly staff, great food, clean and comfortable rooms, walking distance from beach with all it's activities and walking distance from Bangla walking street, looking forward to Thai cooking lesson, catamaran excursion, shooting range and shopping for the next few days....watch this space for updates

Just spent 9 days at Salathai. An excellent location in the centre of Patong yet extremely quiet. Loved the pool. Staff were always friendly. Downside was mattress very hard. Heard at end of stay that you can get a mattress topper. Bathroom was a bit small with shower so close to toilet definitely needs an upgrade. However would still stay again.

Room Tip: A ground floor room overlooking pool

Booked into Salathai resort and were very pleased with decision. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Great location just off the main drag but close enough to walk to everything. Hotel gounds were very nice and well kept. Room was a bit dated but still nice and comfortable. When back in Patong will definately stay again. Think by the look they are renovating some rooms now in low season so might have to see next year.

Room Tip: we asked for room on ground floor near pool. room had two king single beds instead of queen or king...

The Location of Salathai in Patong is awesome. within walking distance of everything, but just out far enough that you get a sense of peacefulness while in the resort. You can hear some noise of an evening from some nearby bars if you stand outside your room but once you close your room door, you cant hear anything from outside. The pool and pool area is a great size and the pool is very clean and refreshing. The service and extras that you get make you feel really welcome and like you are getting awesome value for money. There are complimentary soft drinks and water in your fridge, which I thought were a welcoming once off, but they refilled them every day. There is also very good free wifi throughout the resort and all the rooms all the time. The staff are fantastic and very friendly. As the previous review said there was a problem with the hot water as we were there at the same time, but it was only for 3 days not 6, and it broke on a Friday so they couldn't get parts until Monday. The cold water was not freezing anyway and after 5 minutes in the shower it felt warm. Would definitely be back here. Beds could have been a lot softer, but we found out near the end of our stay that they could provide mattress toppers if we had asked. will know for next time.

Room Tip: room 103 seemed to have a quieter air con than others

Just returned from staying at several different places around Thailand. Salithai was the last for our final 4 nights. We honestly could not fault this place. Re the comment before me, we had no problems with hot water or cold drinks. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is lovely and fresh. Hotel grounds and rooms are kept very clean. We liked the fact that this hotel has the amenities of larger hotels but still feels smaller enough to remain personal and homely. Even though the streets outside are bustling, the rooms are quiet for sleeping.
We had an early flight out and were provided with a travel pack breakfast which we thought was a nice touch. All in all, I highly recommend this resort.
Tip. The italian restaurant directly across the road serves beautiful cheap Thai and Italian food!
