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.

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

This tropical resort on the Andaman Sea is about as far “away from it all” as possible, with 64 acres and a private island. 260 rooms make up the location, from small studios to a two-bedroom suite on Andaman Cove.
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?
