Situated at the Southern end of Patong beach, this hotel offers a bit of a reprieve from the crowds. The Avantika Boutique prides itself on its refined attitude and has 31 rooms, each with a view of Patong and the Andaman Sea. From the moment you’re picked up at the airport until the time you’re ready to check out, the staff is always helpful and eager to please. But ultimately the Avantika is all about location. The combination of peace and quiet just five minutes from all the action is the top reason to consider a stay at this hotel.
