Featured Phuket Hotels

Visiting Phuket – A City Guide
Phuket is ringed by more than 30 white sandy beaches, lapped by the clear waters of the Andaman Sea. But Thailand’s largest island is much more than a sun-seeker’s paradise. It also has its own rainforest, and the lively main settlement – Phuket City – has a rich cultural history.

Phuket: city layout and top attractions
Phuket’s biggest draws are its long beaches and warm sea, ideal for sunbathing, swimming or snorkelling. Along the coast, many bathing areas are fringed by casuarina trees that act as natural sunshades. Inland, the island is filled with forested hills and limestone cliffs.

Most hotels in Phuket are found in the largest and most popular resorts – such as Patong and Kata – in the south and west. Beaches further to the north such as Mai Khao are often more tranquil and laid back. Phuket City occupies the southeast corner of the island.

A world away from the bustling resorts, you can commune with nature in Khao Phra Thaeo National Park, a rainforest reserve in northeast Phuket.

The concierge recommends…

  • Booking a boat trip to gaze up at the dramatic limestone karst cliffs of James Bond Island in Phang-Nga National Park.
  • Taking in the panoramic views from the Big Buddha statue, which looks out over Phuket from atop Mount Nak-Kerd in the south of the island.
  • Soaking up the past by strolling among the restored colonial-style buildings in Phuket City’s historic Old Town district.

Eating Out in Phuket
Phuket has restaurants for every taste, serving Western and local food. You can eat lunch at a noodle stall, and order dinner with fine wines at one of Patong’s sophisticated air-conditioned restaurants. Whether you opt for soup, salad or curry, every Thai meal is freshly prepared with aromatic herbs and hot spices, and invariably delicious.

The emphasis is on seafood, including fresh lobster and crab, at the outdoor beachside restaurants found in every resort. You’ll find the highest concentration in Patong.

Patong’s night market is a good place to sample local Thai cuisine in more informal surrounds. Just pick the stalls that smell the tastiest.

For regional island specialities, try the markets and restaurants in Phuket City.

The chef recommends...

  • Pad Thai – fried noodles with beansprouts, onion and egg, garnished with fish sauce, chilli and ground peanuts.
  • Khao phad gai – fried rice with chicken, egg and onion, typically served with a lime wedge and cucumber slices.
  • Por Pia – spring rolls stuffed with pork or shrimp and lettuce, deep fried then dipped in sweet apricot sauce.
  • Khanom Jeen Phuket – a popular local breakfast of curry, raw and pickled vegetables, anchovies and egg, served over rice noodles.

Shopping in Phuket
Phuket’s shops and markets sell everything from clothing and food to luxury silks and souvenirs. Popular local handicrafts include lacquerware, ceramics, and items made from beachcombed seashells. Haggling in markets is expected; prices in shopping malls and department stores are fixed.

While most resorts have some shops and market stalls, you’ll find the widest choice in Patong and Phuket City. There are several shopping malls in both, including Jungceylon in Patong and Central Festival Phuket in Phuket City.

Best night markets in Phuket

  • Phuket Weekend Market (Naka Market) – the island’s biggest market, held on Saturdays and Sundays on Phuket City’s Chao Fa West Road, with hundreds of stalls selling clothing, souvenirs and local food.
  • Phuket Walking Street – held every Sunday on Thalang Road in Phuket City’s Old Town. The colonial-style houses lining the road are colourfully lit at night, while outdoor stalls sell food, handicrafts and clothing. Buskers provide entertainment as you browse.
  • Royal Paradise Night Market – bustling indoor/outdoor market in central Patong, with more than 100 stalls selling clothing and souvenirs at bargain prices. It was founded as a denim market, and many stalls still specialise in jeans.

Culture & Nightlife in Phuket
As befits a resort island, Phuket’s cultural distractions range from chic cocktail lounges and nightclubs to hedonistic bars and Thai cultural shows. Beach clubs are a popular local phenomenon, usually consisting of a modern restaurant and bar by the sea, serving sunset cocktails with a musical soundtrack.

Patong is the island’s main nightlife hub, with many clubs, bars and discos. Bangla Road is the place to head for the biggest and liveliest. Bars along Beach Road often host live bands.

Top beach clubs in Phuket

  • Bliss – a family-friendly club on Bang Tao Beach, featuring a play area to keep children entertained while you enjoy the DJs and live music.
  • RE KÁ TA – a trendy club and restaurant on Kata Beach, serving freshly prepared, preservative-free food aimed at the health-conscious, with a reputation for playing some of the island’s best music.
  • Xana – a laid-back nightspot on Bang Tao Beach, decked out in relaxing white with a large terrace for watching the sun go down. Its large pool features a swim-up bar, and the evening soundtrack is provided by resident DJs.

Leisure in Phuket
Phuket’s tropical seas are paradise for beach lovers and watersports enthusiasts. But there are also plenty of alternatives, from forest walks to a cultural tour of Phuket City.

For a break from the beach, make a day trip to Khao Phra Thaeo National Park. You can marvel at the beauty of Ton Sai and Bang Pae waterfalls, or stretch yourself by hiking an eight-kilometre rainforest trail.
Beside Bang Pae falls is the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project, where abandoned pet apes are returned to the wild.

Take to the water in Phuket

  • The island’s warm clear waters are perfect for scuba diving. You can rent equipment and take lessons in all the major resorts, or simply snorkel directly off the beach.
  • Paddle yourself in a rented canoe or kayak. If you’re feeling lazy, you can also rent jet skis and motorboats.
  • Enjoy a boat trip to nearby Phi Phi Island. Hotels and resorts here make the most of the stunning tropical scenery and sandy beaches.

Decent Value for money
By CBHighlander
The Holiday Inn Express is reasonably good value for money and in a good location if being close to the beach is important. I have no strong feelings about this hotel one way or the other. I would [More] neither dissuade somone from staying there nor recommend it. I would not be likely to stay there again, but that is not a reflection of the hotel;it is simply not my type of place. It's clean and comfortable and the staff seem eager to please. The bed was comfortable, room clean, etc. I can not comment on the breakfast because I didn't sample it. My only real complaint was the slow internet speed, but that is common in many hotels. I tried to watch sports playoffs but was unable to because the video kept stalling. [Less]
Affordable & Amazing Hotel”
By Vaniessa
Amazing and friendly staff (kudos to Cinta)! The rooms are clean and spacious with all the basic amenities equipped. All rooms come with free breakfast with simple selection, enough to fill you up [More] but don't expect anything fancy. We arrived early & cinta was kind enough to allow us to check in early, and what I the most is they give you luggage tags with numbers when you store your luggage in the store room. A staff will follow you when you collect your luggage from the room to ensure the security and safety of other travelers luggage as well, which is good. The hotel is close to 7-11 and Family Mart, and you can get all the things you need. The beach is within walking distance however to go to Bangla Road, you need to walk for at least 10 minutes however there are lots of things to see along the way. On a side note, i requested for a quick room touch up in the evening. The housekeeping staff came immediately and did all the necessary stuff. However what surprised me was 10 minutes later on, i received a call from maybe the housekeeping supervisor who just asked me 'is my staff in your room?' which i think is quite rude. You don't just call a guest's room and just ask that question without even saying sorry to disturb you or hello can i please know if my staff in your room. Overall it was a pleasant experience of course, i will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone :) [Less]
