Phuket Hotels & Resorts

No matter what kind of accommodation you're looking for, you're spoiled for choice in Phuket. Even the rich and famous - or those just pretending to be - have several places to choose from.

To help narrow down your choices, in addition to price you will want to consider the location and type of place where you want to stay. Those interested in nightlife as well as sun and sea will want to consider staying in the area of Patong Beach, the island's most developed area. Kata Beach to the south is a bit more intimate. Bang Tao bay is home to the integrated resorts of Laguna Phuket, which features a half-dozen properties catering to different clientèle, from the family oriented Laguna Beach Club to the mid-range Dusit and Sheraton resorts and on up to the luxurious Banyan Tree resort and spa.

The list below shows some of the best we know of. Families should have a look at the Allamanda, which has two bedroom townhomes as well as regular hotel rooms. If you aren't satisfied with our selections, you can search the entire database of hotels on Phuket.
