When the tropical sun heats up Patong and you're not on the beach or out exploring, chances are you are in the resort pool. If so, the last thing you need is having to leave the sanctuary of the water to order a cocktail. You are on an idyllic island break after all and allowed to be lazy this way. We therefore suggest you think ahead and book your accommodation at one of our hotels in Patong with a swim-up bar.
Not only will you have this spoiling treat at your disposal, but our resorts have been chosen for their outstanding locations which will answer to all requirements. Some are in the centre of the action, there are hotels near nightlife steps from pulsating Bangla Road, some are on or near the beach, others in quieter spots to the northern end of Patong Beach and a few offer breathtaking views from hillside locations.
Below we offer a short description for each of the options so you can quickly identify which will suite your preferences best. When you click the check price tab you will find a more detailed rendition of each detailing all their other facilities. Please note that you will find many hotels online offering poolside bars, meaning it is a few steps away from the pool and therefore not the same as the swim up bars we list below.
