Grand Mercure Phuket Patong is a recent addition (opened in April 2014) to Patong Beach’s buzzing accommodation scene. Joining the high-end hotel choices of the ever-popular prime resort town on Phuket’s west coast, this five-star resort harbour - in a chic, contemporary-styled complex – has all the assets required for a memorable holiday in southern Thailand.
With 300 rooms and, unique in Patong Beach, 14 private pool villas, the resort is like a village inside a city. Each of the two accommodation wings has its own swimming pool with pool access rooms, and the general layout of the compound is designed around a central pool with sunbathing desk, and Bubbles, the signature restaurant and its cool poolside terrace. Dressed up in warm beige and grey with spots of green from the tropical vegetation ornamenting the alleys and corners, Grand Mercure Phuket Patong gives a feeling of peace and comfort.

Located near the central area of Patong Beach, Grand Mercure Phuket Patong gives easy access to all that the favourite destinations of Phuket’s west coast has to offer. The beach is a five-minute walk away while Jungceylon (the largest shopping and dining mall in Patong) and Bangla Road (the centre of nightlife entertainment in Patong) are a mere 10 minutes’ walk from the resort.
Part of the Accor Group of Hotels, Grand Mercure Phuket Patong offers its guests the long experience in hospitality it has learnt in its 40 years of existence. The resort has an efficient Public Relations team which includes people fluent in English, French, Russian, Chinese (Mandarin), and –obviously – Thai.
Grand Mercure Phuket Patong is the only resort in Patong Beach to feature private pool villas. Available in two types (with one or two bedrooms), they offer their tenants an exclusive independent feel, and all the top-of-the-range amenities (Wi-Fi, video games on television, and much more) necessary for a comfortable stay.
Bubbles is the signature restaurant at Grand Mercure Phuket Patong. Situated on the main poolside and featuring indoor and outdoor dining areas, this excellent restaurant serves, in a sumptuous décor, a selection of dishes ranging from Mediterranean starters to Oriental kebabs to Asian specialties to more traditional Thai recipes to western favourites.
The choice of leisure activities available in or nearby the resort is simply first rate and could please anyone. On site, the three swimming pools (with adjacent children’s pool), the well-appointed fitness centre, the kid’s club, and the bicycle rental service offer a great choice of pastimes. Nearby, the resort’s team can arrange tennis and golf lessons, as well as a myriad of sightseeing tours and activities.
Craft Beer Lounge is a themed bar boasting the largest selection of draught and bottled beers on the island, with over 120 different labels from all around the world to choose from. Craft also features a large LCD screen television broadcasting major international sports events, a pool table and other table-top games.
Five chic outlets are located right next to the lobby and offer guests on-site shopping. The venue that stands out the most is Chou Chou Deli Shop, a trendy coffee-shop serving delicious signature Choux & Éclairs (French pastries); an art gallery, a beachwear store, a souvenirs shop (selling resort’s pillows, cushions and towels), and a convenience store are the four other outlets.
Ryn Spa is the perfect place for guests to benefit from a selection of over 20 relaxing or revitalising massages and body treatments. The peculiarity of the treatments is that they are based on the birth date of the guests, which defines the type of oil used for the massages. Earth, fire, water, and wind oils are concocted with ingredients that best suit each guest.
Grand Mercure Phuket Patong’s compound and rooms have been designed to offer convenient access to people with reduced mobility: ramp access, wheelchair accessible bathrooms, visual alarms and knock light for the hearing-impaired; everything has been thought out to offer a comfortable stay to everyone.
The construction of Grand Mercure Phuket Patong has taken into consideration all potential security matters, even the less probable. The resort has been built two metres above the ground using antiseismic technologies, and features all the equipment and alarms necessary for its guests to remain safe in the unlikely event of a natural disaster.
