170, 170/1 Thaweewong Road, Patong Beach, Phuket 83150, Thailand.
Good clean hotel in an excellent location. Straight across the road from the beach and 5 minutes walk from the busy night life of Bang la Road. Very friendly and helpful staff. Unfortunately they have followed several other hotels in the practice of charging for bringing an "extra guest "back to the hotel.

Potentially a great resort but our stay was spoilt by a couple of things which I have explained to the front desk clerk ...so hopefully my feedback will get through. The Deluxe room was great...good size bathroom, clean towels everyday, good free wifi reception. The only problem...the bed was rock hard and the bedding smelt of musty mouldy smell every day even though the sheets were clean and changed ...maybe the mattress. Anyway made sleeping impossible and then the smell was horrid. There are 2 great swimming pools and Happy Hour Cocktail bars where the price is 100 bt and we enjoyed those. The breakfast in the morning was basic compared to the previous hotel we stayed in on Chaweng Beach. The food in the baine marie was luke warm on both days so just went to the egg station and had a cooked egg and croissant which was nice. We ate at the front restaurant for dinner on our last night and they had a great couple performing ballads. The food was nice there. You could select the fresh seafood on display and have it cooked the way you wanted. Would go back if the problems were rectified as the location is great. Just on the main Patong strip, but you would never know it as once you stepped inside the grounds it was a lovely oasis.

Thara Patong Beach Resort & Spa (Formerly Swiss-Belhotel Thara Patong Resort & Spa) is located in the heart of Patong Beach and is set back off the beachfront road, affording easy access to Patong's bustling street life as well as it's long white beach. Only a short 30 to 40 minutes away from Phuket's international airport and about 15 mins from Phuket town.
