At the northern end of Patong Beach, the B-Lay Tong is a fun five-star beachfront retreat. The exterior is made up of minimalist modern blocks interspersed with bright multicolored glass walls and circular windows, and the awesome see-through infinity pool features partially submerged loungers and a swim-up cocktail and smoothie bar. The bright and breezy guestrooms are decorated in the four different element colors (red, blue, green and yellow), in keeping with feng shui principles. Bold local artworks adorn the walls (there’s also an in-house art gallery), and all rooms come with rainfall showers and a private balcony. Romantics should splurge on a Grand Deluxe Room, which has an outdoor hot tub and a love seat. Evenings are best spent in the 198 Lobby Bar watching the sun set over the Andaman Sea, or at the B-Hive Gallery BaRestaurant; try the signature honey cocktail and dine on Asian and international fare.
In the Area
The hotel is at the quieter northern end of Patong Beach but within easy reach of the area’s legendary party scene. It’s a 20-minute walk from Bangla Road, which has enough bars, clubs and revelers to keep you busy until the small hours. To the north of Patong Bay is Kamala beach and Phuket FantaSea, an evening theme and cultural park with nightly shows. There are also plenty of outdoor activities on offer across the island, from beach massages and elephant rides to canoeing and golf. If you’re looking to sample some local cuisine, take a cab to Baan Noy, near the south coast, for some of the best seafood on Phuket.
How to Get There
I will never stay here again and I will actively tell my friends to avoid this property. I live in Bangkok, travel a lot, and have lots of friends who travel. You can forget all of our business. So, I hope your berating a potential repeat customer over a $4 hand towel (or a $1 bottle of bleach...) was worth it....
Everything was great, until I checked out. I've never been subject to an intentional attempt at humiliating a guest by hotel staff, until that day. The morning I checked out, I accidentally spilt tea on a hand towel. Although I apologized and said it was an accident, the hotel staff demanded I pay. (We are not talking about high-end silk here....) I politely refused, explaining that it was an accident. (Note, I left a tip for the housekeeper in my room -- if the hotel, for whatever reason, was so adamant about me paying, than they had plenty of money to pay for it.) Hotel staff followed me to my taxi, confronting me with the tea-stained hand towel. I don't blame the staff -- I assume they were just doing their job as they were trained -- but Is this really how you train your staff to treat guests???
I cannot imagine being treated that way at a Novotel, Intercontinental, or Marriott property. I hate saying this, but I will think twice next time about booking a local hotel, and will likely stick with an internationally recognized brand where I know guests are treated with respect.
First of all, I would like to address to the Mr. Daow Sittichan - the Resident Manager of the hotel. I have read all you respond to the previous guest in Tripadvisor and I found that you're never done what you promise and I guess it's came worse and the following experience would like to share to everyone whom may book your hotel.....trust me...DO NOT STAY IN THIS GUEST HOUSE!
1. My family and I stayed in your hotel from 28 July - 03 Aug 2018 and room No. 214, 215, 217 & 218 (US$ 160 per room per nights).... first-night power was broken down (All Building) and asking the manager at the front desk...he said, not only your room every room is same don't be surprised.... it always happens....speechless(><)...the disappointed things is he never ask do we have any assistance needed.
2. No toothpaste and toothbrush provided unless you request ...Four Star Hotel?
3. Very poor lighting around the hotel.
4.WiFi is terrible always log out automatically
5.Tiles falling off in the pool & poor water quality
6. No lifeguard on duty at the swimming pool.
7. Dirty & damage bath towl (See attached photos)
8. Breakfast is expected simple and no too much variety, they provide a fire egg station but if you order boil egg.....fire egg will be served..
9. The dining room is no airconditioning provide and there has a huge number of mosquito all around you so, you better eat cup noddle in the room.
10. The outdoor swimming pool has a lot of broken tiles, one day my daughter's leg was getting cut when she swimming (bleeding) and asking for First AID box for assistance, SORRY ....no such items.
Finally, our holiday is wasted and I don't believe the Reseident Manager will improve as he was promised many time in TripAdvisor therefore, please don't stay there....
From Hong Kong - Man Ieong & Family's
It is just next to Patong beach, one of the most famous beach in Phuket.
When me and my friend arrived at the hotel, we were so hungry (almost midnight)
We decided to order Room service.
Phad Thai, Honey Citrus Salad and Penne Pomodoro!
the Food were so great.
Breakfast was awosome!! (The dimsum and Eggs)
also the quality of bed.... GREAT! I wanted to stick on the bed all day long,
from the Pool, the view is also good. you guys can see the Beach without any obstacles.
Love to stay there again once i go to Phuket again!
Just returned a few days ago from an amazing holiday . My husband and i were celebrating our silver wedding anniversary away without the children . This hotel was amazing and ticked all the boxes for us including, the pool and pool bar, amazing views from the pool, the friendly staff i could go on and on.
The complimentary minibar was a lovely surprise. The rooms were light ,large and cleaned daily.
Breakfast was buffet style offering breads, fruits, eggs, pancakes, french toast, cereals and Thai Style breakfast, far too much to choose from.
We had a lovely room overlooking the pool and beach, room 542. This room is on the 4th floor. There is a lift to each level and the stairs are not too bad to walk up either.
11am every day you are able to get on the free hotel bus to the shopping mall , but it is only one way.
Thursday nights are B Lay Tong night market nights where a few stall offering various gifts to buy.
We ordered food round the pool a couple of times which was stunning. Pool music suited the time of day and the type of people around the pool at the time , and always played the best playlist during sunset.
Yes there are a few tiles loose or missing in the pool but did not compromised safety in any way .
We left our room for 2 days and 1 night while we were away on the Phi Phi Islands. On our return he room and belongings was how we left it.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday and we would love to return one day.
We’ve just come to the end of our 2 week stay at the B-Lay Tong in Phuket and I can’t praise this hotel enough! From the moment we arrived the staff have been incredible! After a long flight we where directed to our room 544 and what a great room balcony over looking the pool with views of the beach and the jungle it was perfect. Huge bed really comfortable great tv to chill with of a night and tea and coffee and water provided every day. This hotel is in a prime location just over Road from beach but at a quiet end of the resort only 15 minute stroll into the resort centre. Breakfast was wonderful an abundance of choice so much to choose from full English down to full Thai plenty of fruit cereal and one mean omelette!! The attention to detail is second to none and I can’t wait to return! Would 100% recommend to any travellers
