Phuket + The Islands

Hotels in Phuket + The Islands

For its first Phuket property, Anantara eschewed bare-bones minimalism in favor of a fresh take on classic Thai aesthetics.

An elegant property that welcomes children, on the secluded Mai Khao Beach; the 3 restaurants were renovated in 2009. 

Samui's top wellness retreat sits on nine gorgeously lush acres on the tranquil southern coast.

The perfect hotel for a Lao Liang islands getaway.

Phuket Island’s northwestern coast is home to this villa resort near Bang Tao Bay. Small-scale, modern buildings influenced by local architecture make up the accommodations.

Beachside resort with lagoon-style pools and a shuttle to Patong Beach. 

Room to Book: Deluxe Ocean View rooms have private balconies.

Doubles from $344.

With 70 expansive two-, three- and four-bedroom bi-level villas outfitted with lustrous wood furnishings, the lushly landscaped property is a bit like bunking at a second home. Naturally, creature comforts include Wi-Fi, a ceramic cooktop, and a washer—but why waste your days doing laundry?

Phuket's Amanpuri is the very first Amanresorts property and, perhaps, the loveliest. Guests may book one of 40 rooms or 30 villas and dine in either of the 2 restaurants before hitting the property's bar. Villas come with a private pool, a driver, a gardener and two maids.

106-room waterfront property with lots of activities (including sailing on Bophut Bay and Thai language lessons), on Phuket’s longest beach.

Room to Book: Deluxe rooms are on the second or third floor feature terrazzo tubs for two.

Doubles from $310.
