The majority of the hotel managers has that kind of “no ladyboys policy”, because they know that there is a higher risk for problems (stealing, arguing about the price etc.) compared to the girls.
That might be true for the freelance prostitutes on the Beach Promenade or Bangla Road in Patong, but if you meet a “normal” ladyboy by using a popular dating site like Thai Friendly, then it can be really frustrating when the hotel staff refuse her entry.
If that happens, you have only 2 choices: You can either tell her mai bpenrai and goodbye, or you can take her to a short time hotel. These are plentiful in Phuket’s beach towns, but of course you will need to pay for the room rental – usually 350 Baht for 2 hours.
I assume you want to avoid all that, and that’s why it’s so important to choose a “ladyboy-friendly” hotel in the first place. In this little post today I will try to help you with that.
It’s not really difficult to find a hotel in Phuket that offers a good value for money – there are hundreds of hotels in all price ranges and the high competition ensures that there are fair prices and good promotions all the time.
However, what’s a little bit more difficult when choosing a hotel are 2 things: First, you need to find a hotel in a good location. Good location doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s within 5 minutes walking distance to the beach, but rather that it’s located near all the ladyboy hot spots. If you don’t know where those are, you can check out my guide to the best places to meet ladyboys in Phuket for more info.
And then, you should obviously make sure that your preferred hotel allows you to invite ladyboys to your room. I have already written a guide to the girl friendly hotels in Phuket, so this one here will focus on the shemale-friendly accommodations. And since Patong Beach is by far the best place in Phuket to find ladyboys, all of the following 5 hotels are located in Patong.
Note that because all these hotels are quite popular – not just because they are ladyboy friendly, but also because of their great value for money and location – it’s not unlikely that they are fully booked when you inquire. So just click through the different hotels and check their availability on Agoda, and always read their latest reviews before you book a room.
