Patong Beach hotels come in many prices, sizes and locations so finding the hotel that will please both your budget and your need for the best place can be really tricky. Many readers ask for our suggestions but there is no such thing as ‘One Patong Hotel Fits All’.
Basically everyone wants for the same things:
Please recommend a hotel in Patong Beach:
- right on the beach
- close to nightlife
- and it must be a quiet
- and romantic hotel
- Oh, and it must be cheap!
Sorry to be the one to bring the bad news but that hotel doesn’t really exist. However some hotels can come quite close, but these won’t come cheap, unless you come during low season. To help you picking the right hotel in Patong beach, remember that the price of hotel decreases with the distance from the beach and from the centre. Patong consists on 4 roads parallel to the beach. Each road further back to the hill gets cheaper accommodation…
Once again, we stayed or personally visited all the hotels listed here and we would recommend them to our own friends
Hotels close to the beach, but not as close to Bangla:
1. Amari Phuket
Amari Phuket is one of these rare resorts in Phuket having a very unique location on Patong Beach. Blessed with its own small sandy cove and a unique view on the entire bay, all the rooms at Amari Phuket are facing the sea!This four star resort is located at the southern end on Patong, just past the large bridge… It is quite a large hotel and despite a slightly dated architecture, the renovated design, two large pools and one of the most romantic restaurants in Patong, makes Amari Coral Beach a long time winner.

Holiday Inn Phuket is a success story since a very long time, and their team makes sure it stays this way. Many might not associate the brand ‘Holiday Inn’ with ‘Luxury Island Resort‘, so you might be in for a surprise. The location is great if you want to get the best of both faces of Patong: the beach and the city with its shopping and famous nightlife. And yet once in the resort, it is surprisingly quiet. But it takes more than a good location to get it right: many resorts along the beach road don’t get that popular. So let me just list what’s good and what’s not. Read more…
Novotel Phuket Resort at the northern end of Patong Beach offers sea views not many hotels in Patong can afford. Designed with typical Thai roofs over an imposing lobby, palm trees and greenery everywhere around three huge cascading pools, the resort is a small Thai oasis in a frantic town. You can choose to laze around the pools or walk down to the beach just across the road. This part of the beach is less crowded and often nicer than other parts, and you can enjoy beach activities or beach massage. Read more…

Le Meridien Phuket has become an iconic hotel of Phuket, for it’s amazing huge pool and most of all, one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Part of the ‘Best Beaches of Phuket‘ collection, ‘Relax beach’ or ‘Karon Noi beach’ is a only accessible by the guests of Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort. Not well known from most tourists, it happens to have the nicest sand and most amazing blue sea on the island, and it is not far Patong Beach.
With no less than 470 rooms, Le Meridien might be one of the first and largest resorts open in Phuket but it has not lost its charm and never feels overwhelmingly big. The hotel features some excellent restaurants such as Ariake (Japanese), Portofino (Italian), Wang Warin (Thai) and several great beachfront dining, we even come here to treat visiting guests. The spa deserves a special mention and the fitness room is one if the largest we’ve seen in Phuket. Read more…
Centrally located and still close to the Beach
The Kee Resort is one of the best located hotel in Patong Beach for those of you who want to enjoy everything Patong is famous for: fun nightlife, very close to the beach, not far from shopping and not even expensive! Its unique location at the end of Soi Seadragon makes if the perfect place for guests who plan to party but also enjoy well designed hotels equipped with all the facilities you can expect from a 4 star hotel with a good and very friendly service.

Millennium Resort is another large resort with a lot of qualities for those who want to get the best of Patong. Best of all it is located above the very popular Jungceylon shopping mall with dozens restaurants, shops, cinemas and other entertainment venues but it is just across the street from Bangla Road (Patong beach ‘Party Central’). In addition, the beach is at walking distance. Millennium Resort features 2 large pools but they can get busy at some time of the day.

This 184 rooms hotel located just opposite the famous Holiday Inn Resort is really well designed and has been success since its opening.
Burasari features a Thai restaurant called Kantok, a bar (Misty Bar) and most important a pool bar. The hotel also has a spa with a lot of fancy treatments (which resort doesn’t have a spa in Phuket nowadays). The hotel rooms are of a good size, well designed and with balconies. The swimming pool area is very popular with a lot of greenery but what made the success of the Burasari is the staff kindness and efficiency. Read more…
Then there are tons of other hotels worth checking, but we didn’t personally stay in these hotels but we inspected them and reviews are very positive.
11. Sleep with Me
Sleep with me is a well priced hotel in a good strategic location if you want to be close to the nightlife, the shopping, not too far from the beach AND you don’t want to pay a fortune for it. Simple but with a young modern design Sleep With Me is a name that you won’t forget. We always wonder how much it contributed to the success of the hotel. One of the nice feature is the rooftop bar and swimming pool. They are not large but it’s a nice place to hang at the end of the day. Read more…
Great hotel for families with a very large pools and plenty of pool access rooms and a superb pool bar. Located on the second road of Patong, it’s not far from the beach and at walking distance from Jungceylon shopping mall. The road in front is very busy but the resort is an oasis of peace.
