An excellent resort in a picturesque setting. Convenient to Patong. Highly recommended. The Merlin Beach Resort is a low-rise building on the beach and is situated on 12 acres of swaying coconut palms and tropical gardens. NOTE: The beach at this resort is not well suited to swimming as it is very tidal and has large patches of coral and rock in the bay. Located on the secluded Tri-Trang Beach, only 3kms from Patong Beach. The hotel is 46kms from Phuket Airport and 16kms from Phuket town.
