What are the best hotels with Kid’s Clubs in Phuket


Finding the right family resort in Phuket is as challenging as it is important. Phuket has a great range of hotels that appeal to families, from cosy guesthouses with local charm to sprawling luxury resorts. Whether searching for a beachfront resort with massive swimming pools, a quiet retreat with comfy guest rooms, or a place offering fun-filled sports, art and cultural activities for the kids, a hotel in Phuket will cater to your needs.

Here are 13 of the best family hotels in Phuket, listed in no particular order.

1. Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort

Le Meridien Phuket

This 400-room luxury resort is in a coveted location, set on 40 acres in a cove between Karon and Patong beaches, with a beautiful white-sand beach at its doorstep. While “private” beaches are not allowed in Phuket, the beach here is essentially private since the resort takes up most of the land approaching it.

The bay is a lovely spot to swim, and Le Meridien offers a big range of family activities, including tennis and squash, Hobie cat sailing, a climbing wall and scuba diving lessons. Two large swimming pools with sea views and a kids’ pool offer plenty of space for children to splash around. Read more

4. Novotel Phuket Surin Beach Resort

Novotel Phuket Surin Beach Resort

This resort has changed brand names a few times over the years, and it’s now operating under the Novotel banner.

They have a kids’ club, a cinema and arcade games room, and an ice cream shop. Swimmers are spoilt for choice with three swimming pools, two waterslides and a separate children’s pool.

The resort is not directly on Surin Beach, but it’s a short walk away. The beach is beautiful, and the sands are great for sandcastle-building, but families must be cautious about swimming here with the strong currents.

The resort’s many family features are a kids’ club, movie room, Xbox 360s, and activities like Muay Thai classes and umbrella painting. It has six – yes, six! – Swimming pools on-site, including a kids’ pool with a mini-slide. The Holiday Inn is more than 30 years old, but frequent renovations keep it looking fresh. Read more
