Bottom Line

The upscale Banthai Beach Resort & Spa caters to vacationers who want to be in the center of the Patong action, but not at the expense of peace and quiet. Although it's just a few minutes' walk from Patong Beach and Bangla Road nightlife, the property is calm, and offers three pools with swim-up bars. The 290 guest rooms have minibars, wood flooring, and lovely balconies with wood furnishings. Tropical plants and palms grow throughout the property, and interiors have a slightly edgy, modern elegance. Other pluses include a spa with an outdoor hot tub, large outdoor dining terraces, and a free buffet breakfast. While the property is quiet during the day, nighttime can be a bit noisy due to live music and bustling street life. Wi-Fi is only free in some rooms.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Resort hotel with big pool scene and edgy, modern interiors 

The Banthai Beach Resort & Spa consists of four-story white buildings with wood roofs surrounding three separate pools -- appropriately, guests include tourists seeking a mix of downtime and nightlife and honeymooners ready to relax. The grounds are laced with tropical plants and palm trees, which contribute to a secluded vibe, despite the property's close proximity to vibrant street life. The three pools are basically identical, with clay tile decks lined with bright blue lounge chairs and umbrellas; each has a simple swim-up bar. Other outdoor spaces include the Port Restaurant terrace, with wood flooring and bright blue chairs. An outdoor stage hosts live music nightly. Inside, a modern, minimal aesthetic pervades, with edgy furnishings, pops of bright color, and loads of natural light. The lobby bar is long and white, and set off by wood flooring and long couches with turquoise plexiglass backing. The Port Restaurant is a mostly simple space, other than a few bright-red tree decorations lining one wall. Spa treatment rooms are likewise modern and have bold elements, such as a bright red, rounded wall cutouts. 

Location

Minutes from the beach and nightlife on Bangla Road

This ideally situated property is just a few minutes' walk from both Patong Beach and the nightlife epicenter Bangla Road, which is lined with clubs and bars. The streets immediately surrounding the hotel are busy, with plenty of shops and eateries, but the property is set far enough off the street to remain reasonably quiet during the day. The Junceylon Shopping Center is about 15 minutes away on foot. Phuket's International Airport is a 40-minute drive. 

Rooms

Clean, modern rooms with balconies or terraces with pool views

All of the rooms have either terraces or balconies with wooden furniture and look out onto one of the three pools. All rooms are air-conditioned and come with safes, flat-screen TVs, and minibars. Decor is clean and modern. Superior Rooms, the most affordable option, have richly hued wood flooring and built-in bench seating, dark-wood trim, and blinds on the glass balcony doors, white walls and bedding, and brightly colored throws and pillows. There's a fee to use Wi-Fi in Superior Rooms. Deluxe Room terraces are just four meters from the pool, and these rooms include free Wi-Fi. Superior Suites also have whirlpool tubs. Bathrooms have shower/tub combos, and include beach towels, bathrobes, slippers, and hairdryers. 

Features

Three pools with swim-up bars, free buffet breakfast, and spa

The three pools all have swim-up bars, and there are two additional interior bar areas -- a gong is sounded every evening to denote the beginning of happy hour. The on-site Port Restaurant serves a free buffet breakfast daily, which includes hot and cold items, smoothies, and iced coffee drinks that receive great guest reviews. The spa offers massages and beauty treatments and has its own outdoor hot tub. The business center has four computers for guest use. A fitness center with lots of windows offers a pleasant setting in which to use cardio and weight machines.
