Phuket Accommodation Tips

  1. There is usually plenty of accommodation available in Phuket, although if you are planning your holiday in the high season around December or January it is advisable to book your accommodation well in advance.

  2. When looking for budget hotels in Phuket outside of the peak season you should have no problems finding accommodation on arrival, although we always have the first couple of nights pre booked so that when we arrive we don't have the worry of finding accommodation straight away.

  3. When holidaying with children or staying in a Five Star Resort or upmarket hotel we recommend that you book your accommodation in advance.

  4. We have found that the room rates are much cheaper when booked by internet booking agencies than if you walk in off the street.

  5. Room rates across the Island differ greatly between seasons; there are great discounts on room rates during the low season months from May through to October.

  6. If you are planning to travel to Phuket during the low season months from May through to October ensure that your Phuket accommodation has a swimming pool, as the beaches during these months can be far too dangerous to go swimming.

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

  8. When choosing your Phuket accommodation, keep in mind that transport on the island is not that cheap and the island is not small, and to get from one beach area to another can add up over the duration of your stay.
