Good points about the Paripas Patong Resort
There are several reasons why Paripas Patong Resort is a good choice for people holidaying in Phuket. The first is this hotel is great value for money. The Paripas Patong Resort is competitively priced. Patong, and Phuket in general, is relatively expensive for Thailand in terms of restaurants, transport and hotels. The Paripas Patong Resort is considerably cheaper than other similar nearby hotels, particularly the better known branded hotels.
Paripas Patong Resort also has a good location. It’s a 5 minute walk to Patong Beach and a 10 minute walk along the road to the famous Patong Walking Street which is the focal point of nightlife in Patong. There are also some nearby restaurants and convenience stores.
The service at Paripas Patong Resort is both efficient and friendly. Additional services are also reasonably priced. The in house laundry service, for example, costs 50 THB per kilo of laundry which is the same price as charged by nearby independent laundry services.
Rooms at the Paripas Patong Resort
Standard rooms at the Paripas Patong Resort are a reasonable size and nicely decorated. The double beds are king sized and can comfortably accommodate two people. The bed linen is good and the mattresses are reasonably soft. We slept well in our double room.
The bathrooms at the Paripas Patong Resort are notably good. The shower was separated from the rest of the bathroom by a glass screen and the water in the shower was properly hot. The sink and mirror arrangement in the other half of the bathroom was well thought out.
Standard rooms at the Paripas Patong Resort feature an in room safe, a small fridge and a kettle. The fridge is not a minibar although the hotel does provide two bottles of water a day and tea and coffee. Our only criticism of the in room facilities was the poor range of channels on the TV. There were English language sports channels and a single English language news channel but no film channels.
All rooms at the Paripas Patong Resort feature a balcony with two chairs. Smoking is permitted on the balconies. Some of the balconies face onto the main room, but most face towards the side of the hotel and the rear, which allows for more privacy.
Overall the rooms at the Paripas Patong Resort are perfectly adequate and just as good as much more expensive hotels in the same area.
Facilities at the Paripas Patong Resort
On the ground floor of the Paripas Patong Resort there is a large lobby area, a breakfast room and large pool area. We recommend booking the breakfast in advance as it’s good value for money.
There is a small air-conditioned gym on the second floor of the Paripas Patong Resort. There is a small selection of free weights and some cardio machines. The facility is good enough for a light work out. Serious fitness enthusiasts, however, will want to find a private gym to work out in.
There is also a roof top swimming pool and bar area at the Paripas Patong Resort. This an under used facility. The views from the roof top are good and there are plenty of sun loungers.
For the room price, the facilities at the Paripas Patong Resort are good. The hotel doesn’t have a spa or a full service restaurant. Given the large number of spas and restaurants nearby, however, it’s not a problem.
