Thailand’s islands will always be a limelight-stealer, and among them, Phuket still reigns as the one that has something for everyone. Its famous Andaman side may have been well and truly discovered by jet-setting nomads already, but the legendary beaches have certainly not lost their allure.
For a stay that’s central to many of the west coast’s attractions, park yourself halfway down in the resort town of Patong. It’s home to one of the island’s largest and most popular stretches of sand, as well as a raucous nightlife scene, if that’s your cup of tea. The Lunar Patong puts you at the edge of the action – close enough for nocturnal creatures and perfectly quiet for those who are not – and offers simple, clean-lined rooms that are ideal for a fly-and-flop break.
With a multitude of restaurants around and the seashore only minutes away, this mid-sized hotel is a savvy base for beach-goers. The modern restaurant and freeform infinity pool with mountain views are enough to inspire a few days of relaxation on-site, too.
How to Get There
Arriving the first night you have building going on until 9pm right outside your window, after complaining nothing is done.
Second night they still building at 9:30pm and you'll definitely be woken up on Sunday morning very early with the noise of them.
I don't recommend this hotel if your looking to rest.
We stayed at Lunar Patong Hotel during a great trip organized by Almusafer Travel Agency ALMUSAFER!
We really enjoyed accept a few communications issues at the beginning caused by miss informations concerning our prepaid reservations for the group!
Any way finaly they resolve out.
We really love the rooms are clean and spacious, the location is great and the buffet is good and enough.
The only little problems is communication due a basic level of ingles for some hotel staff
Any way the try to do the best most of the time
Many thanks to my friend Jihad ALMUSAFER for all his efforts to organise this lovely trip
We'll be back soon😉
Good location nearby Bangla road but not too close and walking distance to beach as well , staff are very accommodating and great massage place opposite hotel , only problem is the toilet roll which you have to keep calling reception if you run out.
We chose this hotel for our first day in Phuket as our flight arrives late in the night, we just needed a budget place to crash for the night before going to other resorts as well as it was near Patong beach and Bangla road if we decided to have a night out.
Arrived around 11pm local time and went to check in at the lobby, had a bit of a problem with their card readers not being able to charge us for the room despite using different cards and several attempts, we decided to pay in cash instead as it was around THB800+ only.
Got to our room and I can say it was clean and spacious enough, with a small private balcony, a clean toilet and shower, a queen size bed. We decided to cancel going out and stay in instead as it was pretty late and it was raining a bit.
The following day we checked the place and found they had a pool on the 2nd floor but we didn't take a dip as we went exploring the nearby establishments for brunch and bought some groceries to take along.
Checking out was fast and they had a separate taxi and tour attendant kiosk if ever you need one. Booked for a transpo after lunch to get to our other destination, the taxi we got was a private van and the price was good enough, was not charged more than expected.
A recommended place to stay for a budget traveller or if you plan to party in Patong or Bangla road.
Near to shopping and beach, just to 5 minute to Jungcylon , Patong beach Bangla Road. Easy to find local and nice restaurant near by the hotel. I like this hotel, suitable price clean room and nice services.
