The Kee Resort is probably one of the best located hotel in Patong Beach if you want to be in the very heart of the action. Its unique location at the end of Soi Seadragon makes if the perfect place for guests who plan to be on the beach during the day and party at night. The hotel is well designed and equipped with all the facilities you can expect from a 4 star hotel. Rates are very affordable for such convenience and service is very friendly.
With 244 rooms and 6 room types, The Kee Resort is quite large but designed in a smart compact way with a modern style. The pool is clearly addressing to the young generation with an massive pool bar playing club music all day and very skilled bar tenders. Next to the pool is a superb spa with many beautiful private rooms and outdoor Jacuzzi, the perfect way to cure a hangover.
The Kee Resort features two restaurants: The Kee Kitchen on the ground floor next to the pool serving all day dining as well as a good breakfast buffet, and the highlight of the hotel: the amazing Kee Sky Lounge rooftop. Located on the 7th floor, this huge terrace is built on two levels, the first one with a circular bar and great sofas to enjoy the music played by the DJ. This is an absolute must at the end of the day when the sun sets… go up there, order a drink with some food from the menu and get a unique viewpoint of the bay of Patong on one side, and the city on the other. It might just be 7 floors but the sunsets photos you get from the top are amazing!
The resort consists on 6 room types and mine was a convenient Deluxe Pool View. Not very large but really modern and well appointed with a large bathtub, comfortable sofa, terrace with table above the pool (you can hear a bit the music from up there so if you are after total silence, this might not be a hotel for you) and most important a pretty fast free WiFi internet connection.
My room had a good desk and thankfully plenty of plugs as it should be nowadays. I also had a glimpse at the suite rooms on the top floors, they are much larger with a bedroom, a living room and a good balcony fit with a double daybed.
The KEE Sky Lounge rooftop bar got a makeover and now looks like the deck of a cruise ship! It’s fun and offers amazing sunsets and cocktails! Read more
All around the hotel, and actually part of the hotel is a modern shopping arcade selling all the classics items you can expect to find in Patong: Tee shirts, beach sandals, beach toys and of course the compulsory tailors. Note that there are two ways to reach the Kee, one through Soi Seadragon via Bangla Road, and one that leads to the beach in less that 3 minutes. The hotel also is lucky to have a large parking, a rare thing in the heart of Patong!
So just as planned, I went to party (let’s say I mostly took nightlife photos) and this was definitely the best hotel choice. I went back to my room at 4 am without having to drive or ride a Tuk Tuk, I just walked back to your room without any stress or worries.
