Amari Phuket Resort Review

Amari Phuket is a resort with a unique location on Patong Beach. The hotel has a private beach, a fantastic view of the entire bay, and most rooms face the sea! This 5-star resort is at the southern end of Patong past the bridge, making it the perfect hotel if you want to enjoy the best of both worlds. Amari Phuket is close enough to the fun of Patong and still offers the peace of the ocean and green surroundings, making it one of the best hotels in Phuket.

Amari Phuket resort has two wings: the original seafront wing and the new luxurious hillside ‘Club Suites,’ offering a total of 380 superbly appointed rooms with sea views. Guests can enjoy three restaurants, three large swimming pools, a beautiful spa with private sea-view massage rooms, and even a fancy jetty to suntan like a movie star.

Dining and Restaurants

La Gritta

La Gritta at Amari Phuket

La Gritta, the now trendy Italian restaurant overlooking the sea, is one of the most romantic restaurants in Phuket. Not only is the food fantastic, but Chef Patrizia’s dedication to Italian cuisine is evident. She cooks with love and ensures each customer is having a great time. Above the restaurant is a beautiful seafront bar with comfortable sofas facing the sea. Holiday selfies can’t get any better! Read more about La Gritta.


Rim Talay Restaurant

Rim Talay Restaurant at Amari Resort Phuket

Also near the sea, Rim Talay is where you will most probably enjoy a superb buffet breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In front of Rim Talay is a large outdoor sitting area with an open bar where having a cocktail or two is a perfect treat.

The Club Lounge

Club Suite Restaurant at the top of the hill

If you are lucky enough to stay in a Club Suite up the hill, you will enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner with panoramic views from the Club lounge. Since it is just next to your villa, you will probably spend a lot of time by the pool or terrace. Large infinity pool, again with panoramic views of the bay, a large panoramic terrace to enjoy one more holiday drink and a small restaurant for any meal but mostly convenient for breakfast. As the rooms are on the hillside, you can call a buggy to pick you up anytime to take you to the lobby or parking.

The Jetty

The Jetty at Amari Phuket

Not to miss is a walk through the hotel jungle to ‘The ‘Jetty’ where you also can spend a nice peaceful day in one of the nice loungers and enjoy a drink from the bar. A great place to do snorkelling as well! The fitness room is well equipped for those who want to keep in shape, and tennis courts are available.

The Club Suite Room

Amari Phuket Club Suite

We stayed in an exclusive Club Suite at the very top of the hill, a beautifully designed apartment with a high ceiling, large balconies, and floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning views of the bay of Patong. With a large and well-appointed cooking station, a central island and a large dining area, the two-bedroom villa is a perfect place to stay with a small family.

The balcony is immense with sun loungers and great for sitting with a glass of wine, admiring the clouds drifting above hectic Patong.


The Lobby at Amari Phuket

Amari Phuket offers a luxurious beachfront location with stunning ocean views and modern amenities with a range of dining options and bars. The resort features two swimming pools and a spa, while families can enjoy the kids’ club. Overall, Amari Phuket offers a perfect blend of luxury and convenience by the sea and at a short distance to the Patong entertainment district, making it an excellent choice for travellers visiting Phuket. A special mention should also be made about the entire crew and the management. Their well-known attention to small details and their permanent effort make everyone feel at home.

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early and never stopped until I settled in Thailand in 1994. Then for the past 27 years, my passion for photography and my natural curiosity has taken me to every corner of Thailand, jumping frequently between Bangkok and Phuket and basically everywhere I could go. I run and manage large international online travel guides.
