Grand Mercure Phuket Patong is on the west coast of Phuket Island. This thoroughly modern luxury hotel was built to meet UNESCO’s Sustainable Property standards. These standards were created by the UN to help ensure that development doesn’t erode the environment or local economies.
The Grand Mercure has taken great care to craft a unified design across its rooms, suites and even poolside villas. The rooms feature neutral, welcoming colours with occasional dark woods. There are also splashes of the vivid colours that you can find when exploring Patong.
If you want to eat in, then you can enjoy Thai food in the restaurant, French pastries and tea in the deli shop, or drinks in the lounge or bar. You can take cooking lessons to take Thai dining home with you. But if you must work, try spicing up your meetings with the hotel’s themed coffee breaks.
But the life of Patong will undoubtedly call you outside to a dazzling array of options. There are many restaurants around the town. Beaches. Beaches with elephants. A tiger park. Speedboat cruises. Swimming. Snorkelling. Inland you can find jungles. Ziplines through the jungle. Waterfalls. Whatever you love, there’s little chance of you being bored.
