Phuket Old Town, The Memory On On Hotel.

Made famous in 2000 by its appearance in the opening scenes of the Leonardo Di Caprio cult film The Beach, is The Memory at On On Hotel on Phang Nga Road in Phuket Old Town.

Formerly known simply as On On Hotel, which in Chinese means ‘happiness for all visitors’, it was designed and constructed by Penang craftsmen in 1929. With distinct Sino-Portuguese architecture, the 2-storey building has been styled to include exposed brick walls, intricate details above the main entrance and handcrafted window shutters. Having gone through numerous renovations, today it is a charming and chic establishment that barely resembles the hotel that featured in the film.

The On On’s location is ideal for anyone interested in exploring Phuket’s Old Town and its current pricing marks it as an affordable and charming option. It is perfect for an immersive and stylish stay in the Old Town.
