Swissôtel Resort Phuket Patong Beach
s variant on Einstein’s famous equation linking matter and energy has a totally contemporary application here in Phuket when used to describe the
recently-opened Swissôtel Resort Phuket Patong Beach .
In the new equation above, ‘E’ stands for energy,excitement, edginess, eccentricity and excellence…… and then the equation works perfectly!
The Swissôtel Resort Phuket Patong Beach is a funky, chic outpost of good taste and good times, in the heart of the southernmost fringe of Patong.
In fact this southern environs is fast becoming a happening lifestyle center all of its own with Hooters, Hard Rock Café and the recently-opened Irish pub The Drunken Leprechaun all part of the expanding Swissôtel Resort Phuket Patong Beach complex.
The graceful colonnaded entrance of the Swissôtel Resort Phuket Patong Beach immediately strikes you as being indicative of a chic bastion amidst the Patong clutter and so it proves as you enter the cool, modern portico to be greeted in the main lobby by the ceiling high illuminated glass bottle-tower of Dbar, the resort’s uber-fashionable cocktail bar.
You wander over to the reception area to be greeted by the smiling faces of reception staff…. and you will quickly discover that smiling faces and helpful service are another signature motif of this treasure of a resort.
The resort and its rooms are decorated with warm vibrant colors with contemporary Thai design flourishes ,and all are spacious and feature large work areas and high speed internet access.
Swissôtel Resort Phuket Patong Beach is an ideal haven for young couples, singles and families alike offering terrific all-day dining at Flavours Restaurant, or the pavement-side Grab N’ Go coffee shop with its fabulous fresh pastries. Or wander into the Nest Executive Lounge on the 7th Floor for all day nibbles, tea, coffee and evening cocktails, beers and wines.
Then there’s the two levels of outdoor swimming pool to enjoy plus fitness and business centers, a spa and a Kid’s world which boggles the mind with the huge array of distractions and daily program of events and activities offered by the trained staff.
It almost made me want to become a kid again….. although as an adult there was the temptations of the swim-up pool bar to compensate and the evening’s first Flaming Lamborghini cocktail made by Dbar’s expert mixologist was being an adult the right option for me after all!
Walk outside the Swissôtel Resort Phuket Patong Beach and turn left and you’ll be confronted by a happy gaggle of green-suited little people, the eponymous ‘leprechauns’ of the newly-opened Drunken Leprechaun Irish Pub. Here it’s all about nightly live music, draught Guinness and signature Leprechaun Ale, fabulous homemade Gaelic food and pub grub classics and the energetic cultural fusion of enjoying the Irish Craic mixed with Thai Sanuk and all to the rhythms of a Dolly Parton track belted out by the on-stage duo!
Eccentric or What ??
Turn right out of the Swissôtel Resort Phuket Patong Beach and you’ll immediately come to Hard Rock Café live music club, shop and restaurant and the adjacent Hooters Bar and Restaurant with its gorgeous waitresses.
To cap it all, Phuket’s most exotic rooftop “On Top Beach Club” will be opening on top of the Swissôtel Resort Phuket Patong Beach later this year, with bikini brunches, mermaids and foam extravaganzas to look forward to!
Truly, Swissôtel Resort Phuket Patong Beach equals energy, excitement, edginess, eccentricity and excellence and Einstein would have loved it!!
