Swissôtel Resort Phuket Review


Swissôtel Resort Phuket Patong Beach is a great hotel in a great location if you can’t afford a hotel on the beach. This rather large resort is only 200 metres from the beach and at a comfortable walking distance to the Bangla Walking Street. It has a lot to offer travellers who want the best of everything without spending a fortune and driving!

The Location

So what makes Swissôtel Patong Beach a great choice? If Patong Beach is your choice, this superb resort is within walking distance from the beach, from the heart of Patong nightlife with the famous Bangla road and the immense shopping and entertainment centre of Jungceylon Shopping Mall.

OTOP Night Market in Patong Beach

And if this was not enough, just next to it, you will find the large OTOP night market with tons of tiny shops to browse and thousands of items to bargain for (lots of copies here, obviously). This night market is also famous for having lots of seafood and many tiny but friendly bars that play sports channels on large screens.


The Hotel

That’s for the location, but the most important is still the hotel. What impressed us a lot, and what guests will probably remember most, is the staff. Friendly, always attentive with that lovely smile so natural in Thailand. They seem to be always ready to help and have a familiar word or just ‘Wai’ at you (Wai is an excellent way Thai people put their hands together to greet you). In Thailand, ‘hotel hospitality’ means something; try this in your own country!

When you step inside Hotel Swissôtel Resort Phuket Patong Beach, the hotel appears instantly young and designed with a warm and dynamic style. At the very entrance, an impressive design bar captures your attention.

The hotel had everything we needed for our intensive photo exploration: a massive breakfast buffet to get ready for an active day and a rooftop pool to refresh at the end of the day (there are two other pools on other floors, but we can’t resist a rooftop). Then the absolute must: a spa with excellent therapists, friendly and efficient, who could spot the sore muscles and work them out so we could go out there the next day and do it all over again.

The Rooms

The rooms at Hotel Swissôtel Resort Phuket Patong Beach are large and designed for the new generation of travellers. They are bright with plenty of working space and most important: a lot of plugs to charge all our photo equipment, mobile and computer devices.

Flavours Restaurants

Flavours is a large, well-designed restaurant with a comfortable feel, smartly using warm colours and table setups. This restaurant, the only one in the hotel, serves a superb breakfast buffet in the morning.

The Kids Club

We stopped by the kids club and were genuinely impressed by its size of it and the quality and creativity of the layout. Kids love a place like this: large, colourful and well-decorated, with plenty of fun features designed uniquely for kids. We just loved it. The team was friendly, and we ended up having fun and spending a lot of time taking photos of the kids club.

Hard Rock Cafe and Hooters

Hotel Swissôtel Resort Phuket Patong Beach is now known for two unique venues that don’t need to be introduced: Hard Rock Cafe and Hooters. It might not be in everyone’s mind when visiting Thailand to sit in an American restaurant, but it is a way for many to get a homelike meal. Many would disagree, but after seeing Hooters with some good friends, I did understand. Hooters was fun, and Hard Rock Cafe singers and musicians were surprisingly good! If you love live music, you should try it a try, it’s worth it, and both places are so iconic!

Conclusion

Hotel Swissôtel Resort Phuket Patong Beach was a great base for our Phuket exploration: we love the nightlife, the beach, and shopping. From this hotel, we could walk or drive in any direction. Most of all, we love a friendly hotel with a friendly crew to relax at the end of the day.
