Hilton Garden Inn Phuket

Hilton Garden Inn Phuket Review

Hilton Garden Inn Phuket is a well-designed contemporary 4-star hotel in Laguna Complex in Bang Tao, an area growing in popularity with travellers preferring a more relaxed and refined holiday than in the crowded beaches of the south of the island. The hotel will please budget travellers who need the convenience of a modern hotel at a fair price.

Hilton Garden Inn Phuket Bang Tao

Most of the hotels in Bang Tao are 5-star, and Hilton Garden Inn Bang Tao offers a good compromise, located at a short distance from the beach and near the trendy (but affordable) Boat Avenue. You first see the wide-open lobby and reception area as you arrive. The team greets you warmly, and the check-in goes smoothly and in good English.

The rooms

Hilton Garden Inn Phuket is relatively small, with 177 rooms (23 to 28 sqm) in a 7-storey building divided into 4 room categories: Guest Rooms, Deluxe Rooms, Premium Rooms and Accessible Rooms (Laguna views and Garden views)

We stayed in a premium room facing the lagoon and manicured lawns Laguna Complex is famous for, with many coconut trees everywhere. The room is 28 sqm, which could appear small, but it is bright and well designed, with a small balcony, a good working station and a very comfortable large bed with great pillows that help for a great sleep. We sometimes wish we could buy those pillows at home!

The bathroom has a large shower with almost instant hot water and products by Crabtree and Evelyn. There are bathrobes, slippers, a safe deposit box, an iron, a mini fridge with only water, and a water boiler (no coffee machine).

In addition to the comfortable working station, we were impressed by the many USB plugs available around the room, no less than six. There are also a surprisingly large amount of international electric plugs everywhere! This came as peace of mind in a world where everyone carries laptops, phones, power banks, watches, and electronic devices. The hotel also provides free Wi-Fi.

The restaurant

Hilton Garden Inn Phuket has a large restaurant on the ground floor, and The Garden Grille & Bar serves excellent food. From past experiences around the island, 4-star hotels often serve a decent but not impressive cuisine, but The Garden Grille & Bar proved us wrong.

hilton garden inn phad thai

We tried their Phad Thai, and not only was it beautifully presented but also truly delicious; it was served with extra large prawns, so the price was a little high (330 baht). The popular mango sticky rice is also an all-time favourite, and here it is served with ice cream (220 baht).

The Thai dishes on the menu are appetizing: Phad Kapraow, pork or chicken with holy basil, served with jasmine rice and fried egg (205 baht). Khao Phad: pork, chicken or beef served with fried rice and vegetables (205 to 320 baht). Tom Kha Gai: Spiced coconut broth, chicken, and galangal served with rice (260 baht) and the famous Tom Yam Goong (290 baht).

The menu also serves classic Western dishes: soups, steaks and pasta. The wine list, beers and cocktails are just the right size and decently priced (210 baht for a glass of Sauvignon Blanc or Merlot from Chile).

hilton garden inn breakfast buffet

The breakfast buffet was surprisingly large and well presented, serving a good choice of favourite dishes all prepared with quality ingredients and excellent overall. Guests can choose to eat indoors or in the small open-air area.

Facilities

The rooftop

hilton garden inn rooftop swimming pool

The rooftop with two open-air swimming pools is the main feature of the Hilton Garden Inn Phuket. One is an infinity pool facing the lagoon on one side and loungers with umbrellas on the other. Since water is naturally warm all year round, this is attractive and is a perfect place to spend some time in the sun, especially since there is a bar up there too!

Other features

Since Hilton Garden Inn Phuket is not exactly next to the beach, you can ask for the shuttle to drop you there or pick you up anytime. Borrowing bicycles is also a fun option because the road around the Laguna Complex is safe to ride on. The same thing would not apply outside Laguna: riding a bicycle on Thai roads is known to be dangerous.

hilton garden inn shuttle

The fitness room is small, but the equipment from LifeFitness is modern, with machines, treadmills, bikes and free weights facing floor-to-ceiling immense windows. There is a small working station next to the lobby if you feel like working outside your room.

The Beach of Bang Tao

Bang Tao Beach is a kilometre from the hotel. The beach is immense with soft sand, and the sea is clear and calm during the high season (December to April) but can be rough during the rainy season. There are many bars and small restaurants on the beach for everyone to enjoy lunch or dinner. This is pretty unique and enjoying Thai food and local beers with your feet in the sand is a lovely experience. Read more

A low-rise shopping mall is next to it called Porto de Phuket. Best of all, there is a Friday night market called Fun Friday Avenue Market.
