Travel Tips to find the Best Hotel in Phuket

Finding the right Phuket Thailand Hotels and Resorts to suit your holiday is easy with our travel tips, reviews and recommendations.

Many years ago on our first holiday to Phuket, we stayed at the Holiday Inn at Patong Beach.

Back then there was not nearly as many places to stay as there is today.

Today you will find a large selection of accommodation from hostels, guesthouses, cheap hotels and luxury five star resorts.


The perfect location in Phuket, isn't always the most popular tourist destination.


Patong is still the main travel destination for many tourists visiting Phuket.

However there are many other beautiful beaches around the island that offer a selection of wonderful hotels and resort to stay.

To really enjoy your holiday vacation in Phuket, finding the best hotel or resort can make a huge difference.

Choosing the right place to stay will make your holiday a fun and memorable experience.

Choose the wrong one and it could be a downright disaster!



Travelling with Kids

If your travelling with kids you need to look for a family friendly resort that caters well for families.

When picking a family friendly resort ensure there is a good swimming pool, especially if you are planning your holiday during the monsoon season when the beaches can be too dangerous to go swimming.

Look for a resort that has a kids club to allow yourself some much needed time to relax.

As well as a good range of activities that your kids will enjoy as well as activities that you will also enjoy.

You will find most resorts offer complimentary inclusions, check before booking that they offer everything you are looking for.

While on the subject of fun activities for kids, have a look at some of the activities that the kids might enjoy during their stay in Phuket.


All Inclusive Resorts

Maybe you would prefer to stay in an all inclusive resort that has everything at your doorstep.

Club Med at Kata Beach is an all inclusive resort, and is a great spot to stay.

If you do decide to stay in an all inclusive resort, just beware that these packages will tend to tie you down to eating all your meals at the hotel.

To really experience your Thailand holiday, you shouldn't tie yourself down to eating every meal at your resort as there is a fantastic choice of restaurants and places to eat around the island.

When looking for Phuket Thailand Hotels it is best to read hotel  reviews before booking, so you can see what other travelers have to say about their stay.


Absolute Beachfront Resorts

Do you have your heart set on staying directly on the beach in a beachfront resort just steps away from the ocean?

If so take a look at our list of absolute beachfront hotels and resorts.


Hotels in Phuket Town

Many visitors also like to explore Phuket Town and take in the cultural side of the island.

While other travellers need a hotel in town on a stopover on their way to Koh Phi Phi or other offshore islands.




Tips to Booking your Phuket Thailand Hotels


  • Always check the location of your hotel or resort to see if it is close to the beach, shopping etc. As walking around in the heat can get tiring and the cost of Tuk Tuk’s in Phuket even for short trips can quickly add up

  • If you are traveling in the high season book your rooms early as Phuket is very busy from December to January

  • When travelling in the low season you can always look at booking a room for your first couple of nights and then search out a better deal direct with some of the hotels or guesthouses

  • Never ask a taxi driver or tuk-tuk driver for their recommendation on where to stay, as they will take you somewhere that pays them a commission

We use Agoda to search for current room rates and to book our accommodation as they have a great selection of Phuket Thailand hotels and resorts with guest reviews and location maps.
