This is still the best gay guest house in Patong. It has a great location as itis in the Paradise complex where all the nightlife was located.

The biggest draw for me is the bars are on the next street, so if you are out every night like I do nothing is better than a quick 30 second walk back to your room. Trust me boys, stay here in Paradise Complex you will have a ball.

The room is clean, has TV, DVD player, a bed, air conditioning that worked well as I requested, a well stocked mini bar and all the basics amenities.

Breakfast food  menu is nice ( scramble or fried eggs, ham, sausages, tea or coffee, orange juice, yogurts and fruits).

La Flora is a nice little boutique hotel right in the middle of it all in Patong. Room was very nice and the pool was very clean and convenient, although a bit small. The breakfast buffet was very good as well. The beach is literally steps away as is plenty of shopping, restaurants, and night life.

La Flora’s unique selling point is its location. Walk out the front door you are 60 seconds away from Bangla Road, walk out the back door you are straight onto Patong beach, walk out of your room and providing you choose appropriately it’s straight into one of two 40 metre pools and an Oasis of calm normality.

Small and charming but luxury enough without overwhelming the guests. Spacious rooms , excellent bed and mattress, excellent feather pillows , excellent new towels and fantastic amenities . Large screen tv , large balconies overlooking the beach , excellent beach beds and umbrellas, soft beach towels, and service .

The breakfast is amazing with wide selection that you will not find even in other best 5 star hotels.

The day starts with an extensive breakfast buffet supplemented by an egg station and the kitchen if you have any special requests. Coffee as you like it, a range of juices and varied pastries.

The hotel Spa offers a more professional and up market alternative to the somewhat less intimate alternatives which surround you and there’s no risk of a “happy ending”. If that’s what you’re after then take your pick out on the streets of Patong.
