Hotels in Phuket

There’s no shortage of hotels in Phuket, whether you’re looking for beaches, privacy, amenities, and – it’s okay to admit it even on vacation – WiFi. For family-friendly boarding, Trisara is one of the best hotels in Phuket. From individual rooms to six-bed residences, in addition to infinity pools and a separate kids pavilion, there’s something at this resort for everyone. For a boutique-style stay, the Aleenta Report & Spa is just 20 minutes from the Phuket International Airport. It’s one of the hotels in Phuket that can boast about being a short trip away from the Blue Canyon Golf Course and ever-beautiful Phang Nga Bay. The accommodations are top tier and include luxurious private spaces and beachfront views. Anantara Si Kao Resort & Spa is certainly one of the hotels in Phuket that doesn’t hold back. If you’re traveling with one or seven, the resort offers pool suites, family rooms, restaurants, a private island beach, a kids’ club, and excursions to nearby islands.

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 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.

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

While “Destination weddings” are held all around the world, this resort on the Andaman Sea aims to provide a uniquely Phuket destination where couples can tie the knot against a tropical backdrop.

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.

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.

Indigo Pearl’s rough-hewn aesthetic was inspired by its past: architect Bill Bensley (who also worked on the Four Seasons Koh Samui, left) played upon the site’s history as a tin mine when he retrofitted the 277-room property with polished-concrete floors, steel beams, and machinery-inspired scul

While the adults soak in infinity pools overlooking the Andaman Sea, the kids take advantage of the Trisara Kids pavilion. Thirty-nine accommodations make up this resort, ranging from individual rooms to a six-bedroom residence.

Southern Phuket’s Rawai Beach is alive with fishing boats, catamarans, and seafood vendors, and the 78-suite Outrigger Serenity Terraces Resort is the ideal place to watch the bustling scene.

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

Most of Phuket's high-end properties are hermetically sealed temples to luxury, tucked behind gates with little daily interaction with non-guests.  That's what makes the Dusit Thani so refreshing.

Destination Spa Spa-obsessed jet-setters, take note: Six Senses has brought the best of Southeast Asia’s healing arts to a speck of land off Phuket’s eastern coast. A 26-acre retreat houses four individual spas—yes, four—each dedicated to Chinese, Indian, Indonesian, or Thai traditions.
