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.

Latest Phuket Hotel Reviews


Excellent stay
By Pri:)
I stayed 5 nights and really enjoyed staying at Holiday Inn Phi Phi Islands. Staff at this hotel are outstanding. Special thanks to Kuk working in the food and bev department, she was very attentive [More] and nice, always there helping us. Also Lily, one of the chefs, was always coming to say hi to us and checking if we were enjoying our food. The band is great too! I really enjoyed my room and the bed is very comfortable. The beach and the pool were great, we were lucky to get good weather. The gym could improve, only had one treadmil and it was broken. [Less]
Best Honeymoon Ever
By Mick
Everything about this resort was amazing and we had the best time. If We get a chance we will be returning. [Less]
Very nice location
By KA53
I have being comming back to Holiday Inn Phi Phi Resort for around 10 times during the last 20 years. For me it is still one of the best places to spend my Holliday. However - many things has [More] changed since the first time I came to this place. For many years the staff was wearing thupical Thai clothing and the service from the staff was better than today. For me the clothing used today is too much the American style which I do not like. The quality of the food is after my opinion not as good as earlier years and especially this year the quality was even more down as before. Having said that - I will come back again because my general impression of the place is very good. [Less]
Relaxed stat
By Harry Yin
This is my first time in Phuket and I choose this hotel as my first station. I like the environment here, quiet and really beach side. My kid swim in the pool in the whole morning and in the sea [More] for the afternoon. My family are very enjoyed. All the hotel staff are friendly , always smile and very positive to support. [Less]
Great resort for family with kids!
By Mr.Ron
This is a great place for families with kids... Lots of facilities for kids such as the playroom and also a huge shallow pool, even the main restaurant has a dedicated area for kids with small tables [More] and chairs. The property is large and almost fully booked when we were there but it is well designed that you will not feel crowded at all. The staff is all great, friendly with good service mind. One recommendation: if you are an early-to-sleep person, you may need a room that is far from the beachside bar ('Pesto'), because the music is quite loud and your balcony doors will not be able to stop it! [Less]
Beyond expectations
By Indigolover
Haven't stayed in a holiday inn for a long time as they are usually terrible. The reviews for this were OK, but the price in points was too good to miss. Better than some crown plazas and service [More] better than some ICs. Would recommend anyone worried about it being a holiday inn not to worry, the kids suites are fantastic, room so clean and modern, location good for getting out and eating locally. Gym good - although kids were allowed in to just mess around and hog equipment - more an issue with parents then the hotel. Kids club OK for younger ones only, but decent library of PS3 games for the room. [Less]
Great Place to Stay
By EM12
Overall this is a great hotel - close to the beach and a short walk to the nightlife on Bangla Street and Jungceylon Mall. Breakfast is good and they have diversified it for the broad client base. [Less]
Breakfast can be improved
By Lance

Pleasantly surprised
