Located on a hillside toward the northern end of Patong beach (the quieter end), this resort offers most of the facilities of a top-end hotel at midrange prices. Bright, tiled rooms all have balconies, most with views of the bay, and stylish furnishings are complemented by murals depicting Thai temples and scenery. There are plenty of facilities to keep guests entertained and well-fed, include several restaurants and bars, a three-tiered swimming pool, muay thai lessons for kids and adults, and a tour desk where you can plan tailor-made adventures. Service is smooth and efficient.
