The convenience of the Thong Ta Resort cannot be underestimated. Being literally a stone throw away from the Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, Thailand, it makes the perfect transit resort to spend a night or two in the fine confines of a neat and tidy accommodation at a budget price.
The Shuttle Bus
Getting to the resort from the Suvarnabhumi Airport is as simple as riding a bike. Once you make your way out of customs, make your way to gate 3 to 4, and in-between you will see bunch of guys carrying signs to certain hotels. Find the sign that says Thong Ta Resort and in a moment, you are in a shuttle bus and five-minutes later you are at the resort.
Even better, upon your return to the airport, the same shuttle bus will return you to the airport free of charge, it is as simple as that. The buses leave the resort every half hour throughout the day or night.
The Thong Ta Resort has the basic facilities but at the price you could let it pass for luxury. It is surrounded with lovely gardens, decorated artwork throughout the grounds of the resort, a neat restaurant which serves daily breakfast, a spa centre and a souvenir store to buy that little piece of Thailand.
Thee rooms are spacious; the beds are comfortable and each room comes with a balcony to peek at what’s around you (sorry no big city views). Whether you are after a single, double or triple room, you will find whatever you are after for any number of travellers. If you do need an extra room, at least it won’t break the bank.
Inside the room, is tea and coffee amenities, air conditioner, television with about a hundred cable channels, a private bathroom, slippers and dressing gown to rug up in the evening and even a quick and easy room service, with a decent menu. It is hard to believe these rooms are only around thirty bucks a night.
Around the Resort
Even though the resort is still a little way from the action of the city, there is still plenty of life going on around the resort. There is an abundance of food stalls, drinking bars and restaurants in the area, as well as massage parlours and market stalls in the area, so you can still rush around and grab your souvenir of Thailand.
Even if you do want to make it to the heart ofBangkok, and time allows it, grab a city tour through the resort and enjoy the hustle and bustle of the big city lights.
It is the perfect transit resort, simple as that, and even if you are seeking a few nights stay in Bangkok, you won’t go wrong at the Thong Ta Resort. It is clean, convenient and most of all, a very affordable resort.
