52 Thaweewong Road, Patong, Phuket, Thailand
Why this hotel: Across from the beach. Excellent facilities & service.
This resort complex is just a few steps away from the southern end of Patong Beach. The Holiday Inn offers comfortable rooms, a good buffet breakfast and great service. We particularly like the newer suites and villas in the Busakorn Wing which has its own pool and jacuzzi exclusively for Busakorn Wing guests.
The gay section of Patong Beach is just a 10-minute walk from the resort. The nightlife in the Paradise Complex is about a 15-minute walk (although there are always a huge number of pickup taxis available if you don’t want to walk). Very close to the excellent gay-owned Sea Hag Restaurant.
