On the quieter northern end of Phuket’s Patong party beach, this hotel is the bottle-service-club alternative to area hotels with a more frat-like atmosphere. At night, the angular slate-gray exterior glows; the windows of 123 guest rooms are illuminated in jewel tones like yellow, purple, and blue. Interiors have low-slung beds and Eames chairs. Most first-floor rooms offer direct access to the pool, while upstairs suites overlook the Andaman Sea.

Cost: From $107.

Don’t Miss: There are four on-site bars, and Saturday brunch gets the party started early with oysters, grilled seafood, and a free bottle of wine served amid fluorescent street-art-style murals.
