Generally speaking, well known hotels &  resorts in the Patong are welcoming towards all LGBTQ couples and most of the 4 & 5* hotels are gay friendly hotels Patong beach.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people in Thailand may face legal challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents.Both male and female same-sex sexual activity are legal in Thailand, but same-sex couples and households headed by same-sex couples are not eligible for the same legal protections available to opposite-sex couples.

For pure satisfaction and relaxation, the venues at X2 Vibe Phuket Patong feature the finest, most comfortable atmosphere on the island.

The lounge/lobby area is very relaxing and the receptionists checked us in very smoothly as we arrived around 11pm and took us straight to our rooms. The rooms are very comfy and clean, and the workers did a great job cleaning everyday and providing clean towels. Bed is huge and plenty of wardrobe space and a safe. Bathroom is also very nice layout and I’d say has a romantic setting – shower was excellent. Mini-fridge is stocked and we were told it was free to have which was a nice touch, kettle with tea/coffee provided. Television has variety of all channels. Balcony was spacious and has a very nice view of beach, tropical trees and the ocean – nice to sit there in the mornings and just gaze.

WIFI is excellent throughout the hotel. It is very close to all the shops, restaurants, bars, currency exchange, and has in house excursion planner but there are plenty on the street. Beach is also literally 2 minute walk if that. The area is multicultural so if you’re Muslim or Hindu they are plenty of halal, fish and vegan options nearby. Outside the hotel you’ll get offered tuktuk, they always say 200bht, tell them 50bht and walk away as it’s a rip off and see if they change their mind. There is a place next door that dry cleans your clothes for like 50 baht which is so cheap. You can also hire scooters from them so if you’re brave enough then do it as it’s best and cheapest mode of transport. Bangla Road is 10-15 mins walk away. The Jungceylon is 20 mins walk and has recognisable western brands. There is loads of massage places near the hotel you can always haggle but they are already cheap enough £5 for an hours massage.

Hotel itself has a nice compact gym for those into weight training there is a cable machine and few barbells and dumbbells. Swimming Pool is very nice and relaxed. We booked our excursions through the travel rep at the hotel and found him good but haggled to get a good price as it was cheaper elsewhere. Can’t comment on breakfast as we bought milk and cereal from 7/11 two minutes down the hotel and ate out rest of the time so many restaurants and food is cheap and fresh. At night the hotel is very peaceful and got a great night’s sleep, the a/c works very well and is quiet. We stayed in the Day Dream Deluxe and I’d recommend those rooms as the minimum.

Simply arriving to the resort was a breath of fresh air. we were greet at the door as happy stewards took our bags, then we were sat down on beautiful benches in the lobby provided with cold towels and juice. the staff came to us to fill out all the paperwork, and moments later we were escorted to our honeymoon sweet. What you see from the website gallery was not stock photos. Everything was exactly as pictured.

From the accent wall, to the soaking tube (with flowers and lemongrass). every luxury was provided. The Staff at this resort was always happy and hospitable. Gang the bartender of the pool side bar was always a cheerful and helpful face. Always making sure we were happy and content. the pools were nothing short of amazing, always clean and with several happy guests. the kantok restaurant, bar, and spa was on a completely different level than anywhere else in town we found.

This hotel is right in the heart of Patong, a few steps away from all the action., but when you step through your door into this resort you are in a blissful haven. Relaxing, trendy, beautiful food, beautiful cocktails & fantastic service! Cannot recommend this resort enough! Pay the little extra for your swim out room & enjoy serenity & privacy & bliss.

We upgraded to an elite room because we like to have a balcony to sit out on, and were very glad we did this as the elite room was absolutely beautiful, well fitted out and always kept clean and tidy by the housekeeping staff. The minibar is a real bonus and refilled each day. The breakfast buffet dishes were always kept filled and no-one would go hungry with the variety they had. The egg station was especially nice. The grounds and pools were kept well maintained and we utilised the pools and bars quite often. The location is good, being close to the beach and markets etc.. We enjoyed going for a long walk each day, and loved returning to the peace and quiet at the hotel. Would recommend to others

The Burasari is a wonderful hotel with everything you could ever need to relax & enjoy. So close to everything in Patong – the beach, Bangla Rd, the Otop markets, restaurants & bars.
The rooms have free mini bar, air conditioning, big bathrooms & a real comfy bed, big screen TV and are nice & clean. Stay in a pool access room and swim down to the bar for awesome cocktails with my favourite bartenders, Noom & Gang. Enjoy the amazing breakfast with Zim & the always smiling brekky crew.

Fantastic resort tucked away in the middle of busy Patong Beach. Facilities were first class and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was beautifully furnished and located with a view of the pool. Unlimited access to mini bar and extra towels and toiletries were an excellent addition. The Thai cooking class with Amm was brilliant and highly recommend. Breakfast selection was fantastic.

3. Aquarius Gay Guesthouse and Sauna 3* – Gay Hotel Patong Beach

Aquarius Gay Guesthouse and Sauna
Aquarius Gay Guesthouse and Sauna

Aquarius just received TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence 2012 and is very proud of that.Aquarius is the only “men only” Guesthouse in Phuket. We are located in a very quiet walking street right in the middle of the Royal Paradise complex, Patong gay area.Just 5 minutes walk to the beach and to the main shopping centers,cinemas and bowling center. Only 30 meters away from Patong gay nightlife.Aquarius offers an “all under one roof concept” including a guesthouse with 30 rooms and luxury suites for everybody’s budget, a sauna, a fitness center, massage services for men by men and a quiet hassle-free bar.

Again a good stay at Aquarius, located at Paradise Area famous for gay nightlife. Also easy to walk to beach and shopping centers. The hotel has a sauna, swimming pool and a top roof for sunbathing.

The fact is that the rate is inexpensive and you do get what you pay for. Room is comfortable. AC and water heating work very well. Staff are friendly and polite. Location is perfect. Can be a bit noisy after 12 am. It was not a big issue for me but just in case. Breakfast was basic but nice. Service was 2nd to none. And the sauna is small but everything worked well. Most importantly was meeting lovely lads there.

Our room was on the 1st floor above reception and despite it being over the market lane outside it was very quiet. It is aptly named as a Guest House – the room we stayed in was reasonably small but had all the basic amenities we needed. Good bathroom, bed was comfortable and the housekeeping very good. Felt secure in the room and it had a safe for valuables. Meals were good – western style suite our needs (breakfast included in room cost). Unlimited Wifi in room cost was reliable. Staff were attentive and we were able to book sightseeing trips and pay on our hotel bill.The Sauna and Pool facilities were clean and we found the Jacuzzi and deck chairs on the roof and chilled out with the a local brew (normally Singha) in the moonlight at nights.

The gym facilities were good. Only 5 minutes walk to Patong Street where all the general main action is but the Gay activities are just around the corner in the next lane from the Guest House. Plenty of Spa and male massage places in the lane and next lane down also. Aquarius is not a 5 star palace but Paul and his team do an excellent job making the stay enjoyable – we will be back.

Yes the rooms could do with improving, but this is a very reasonable property at a great price. Plus you get a sauna/steam/swimming area indoors and a small rooftop sun & jacuzzi area. Also on-site (decent quality) massage and a friendly staff team..

I booked a jacuzzi room which was about the same price as a basic room at the larger 4 star hotels nearby. It was definitely the right choice .. we got a large room on the top floor and we enjoyed our jacuzzi. We also liked the great location that was so close to nightlife and not far from Patong beach. The included Breakfast was great and we did have dinner there one night as well. The staff were very friendly both for check-in and meal service as well.
