What Are Phuket Best Hotels?

Here are 22 amazing hotels we tried in Phuket. We stayed and enjoyed all these resorts in person, and would recommend any without hesitation. Staying at a hotel is entirely part of your holiday, so it should be an experience and a memory in itself, a memory you will bring back home as much as the sea or the beach. These hotels might not appear cheap, but all have personality, and all were a great experience. The hotels below are not the only ones we tried, of course, we sure tried many (and we mean many!), but we started with the resorts we liked most and sorted them by alphabetical order for now 🙂

Amari Phuket

Patong Beach

Amari Phuket Resort

Amari Phuket is one of those rare resorts in Phuket having a unique location on Patong Beach while having their small sandy cove and a unique view of the entire bay with all sea facing rooms! Read more

Banyan Tree Resort

Bang Tao Beach

Banyan Tree Phuket on Bangtao beach is the most luxurious of the five resorts nestled in the Laguna Complex. Open since almost two decades; Banyan Tree is still one of the ultimate resort experience in Asia. Read more

Kalima Resort

Kalim Beach near Patong

Kalima Resort is a hotel with a fantastic panoramic view of the immense bay of Patong Beach, built on a green hill near Kalim Beach in Phuket. With such unique location, guests can enjoy the sights but also a strategic location within minutes to Patong Beach without any of the traffic inconvenience or when driving north, reach the beautiful Kamala, Laem Singh and Surin Beach. Read more

Katathani Beach Resort

Kata Noi Beach

Katathani Phuket Beach Resort is a great and yet affordable hotel located on Kata Noi, one of the most beautiful beaches in the south of Phuket. Built along a 450 meters sandy beach, this large but very well designed hotel can afford to offer a surprisingly large amount of rooms with real sea views. Read more

Kata Rocks

Kata Beach

Kata Rock Phuket

Kata Rocks is changing the face of luxury accommodation in Phuket and is probably raising the bar for the whole of Thailand hotel industry. With their fantastic Sky Villas and fantastic sea views, Kata Rocks is in a league on their own. Located on a hill at the very south of the superb Kata Beach, every single suite or apartment is incredible. Read more

Holiday Inn Phuket Resort

Patong Beach

Holiday Inn Phuket is a success story since a very long time, and their team makes sure it stays this way. Many might not associate the brand ‘Holiday Inn’ with ‘Luxury Island Resort’, so you might be in for a surprise. The location is excellent if you want to get the best of both faces of Patong: the beach and the city with its shopping and famous nightlife. And yet once in the resort, it is surprisingly quiet. Read more

Hyatt Regency Phuket

Kamala Beach

Hyatt Regency Phuket

Hyatt Regency Phuket is a superb 5-star resort recently built on a hillside of Kamala, overlooking Rayee Beach which is just a little south of the main Kamala beach, and therefore far from any crowd. This exclusive 190 rooms resort offers splendid sea views from almost every balcony and naturally the higher the room, the better the view! Read more

Le Meridien Phuket Resort

Karon Noi Beach

Part of the “Best Beaches of Phuket‘ collection, here is one more inaccessible beach only for the use of a hotel’s guests. Not well known from most tourists, it happens to have the most beautiful sand and most amazing blue sea on the island, and it is not even far Patong Beach. Karon Noi Beach is the nest of Le Meridien Phuket. Read more

Maikhao Dream Resort

Mai Khao Beach

Best Hotels in Phuket

Maikhao Dream Resort is one of the great hotels we experienced in Phuket. However, Maikhao Dream is not a resort for everyone. It is in the north part of the island where the beach is all yours; it is very exclusive which makes it rather expensive and it comes only with 2 or 3 bedroom villas. Maikhao Dream Resort is the perfect hideaway for a group of friends or 3 couples who want to travel together and share their holiday in style. Read more

Novotel Phuket Resort

Patong Beach

Novotel Phuket Resort at the northern end of Patong Beach offers sea views not many hotels in Patong can afford. Novotel Phuket Resort design comes with typical Thai roofs over an impressive lobby, palm trees and greenery everywhere around three cascading pools. The resort is a small Thai oasis in a frantic town. Read more

Phuket Marriott Nai Yang Resort

Nai Yang Beach

Phuket Marriott Resort Nai Yang

Phuket Marriott Resort Nai Yang is a new hotel in a unique place on the northwest coast of Phuket near the Sirinath National Park. The hotel has a lot of great features and qualities, we had a lot to enjoy and discover during our 3-day stay. Read more

Pullman Arcadia Naithon

Nai Thon Beach

Pullman Arcadia Naithon Resort

Pullman Phuket Arcadia Naithon is a superb new resort located on the still peaceful Naithon beach, a surprisingly beautiful beach away from any main road on the upper west coast of Phuket. The hotel is far from the usual crowds but not isolated and near local life, making it an interesting starting point to enjoy what Phuket has to offer if you are not a party goer. Read more

Renaissance Phuket

Mai Khao Beach

Forget crowded beaches and tourist frenzy! Despite the common belief that Phuket is a busy tourist island, there are some stunning beaches you won’t have to share with anyone but your own shadow! Among the best hotels in Phuket is the superb Renaissance Phuket on Mai Khao beach. Read more

Sala Phuket Resort

Mai Khao Beach

Sala Phuket Resort on Mai Khao Beach is one of our favourite resorts in Phuket, but it is not a hotel to please everyone. Sala Phuket is really a romantic resort for couples, and it does not come cheap either but still is affordable. Read more

Six Senses Hideaway Yao Noi

Koh Yao Noi


Six Senses Hideaway Yao Noi on Koh Yao Island is not your usual ‘Phuket Resort’, it is a destination in itself. Specially designed for romantic couples in search of an escape from the stress of the big city, this is a perfect hideaway to spend a few days before moving to the fun of Phuket Island. Read more

The Nai Harn

Nai Harn Beach

The Nai Harn Phuket

The Nai Harn Phuket is in such a unique location and a classic, timeless design; the resort is top-rated. Build on the hillside of Nai Harn Beach; it is the only resort having such a unique view of this fabulous bay. The hotel might not be precisely on the beach, but a short path will take you to it in just a minute, and what beach! A large strip of white and powdery sand ending in a turquoise blue bay (well, during the high season at least). Read more

The Shore at Katathani

Kata Noi Beach

The Shore at Katathani

The Shore at Katathani is one of the most exclusive hotels on Phuket, probably one of our best experience on the island. The hotel combines all the ingredients effortlessly for a perfect escape: a location right on a beach, villas with jaw-dropping views, genuinely caring staff, an excellent restaurant, a good spa and countless small details that make the difference between just a regular ‘hotel stay’ and a truly unforgettable holiday. The location is what impresses first, right on and above the secluded beach of Kata Noi, a superb white sandy bay that has remained unspoiled because it’s not on any main road. Read more

The Surin

Pansea Beach

The Surin Resort

The Surin is a beautifully designed hotel with a long history and a fantastic location on Pansea beach in Phuket. It’s also one of the first luxury hotels on the island. The name of the resort is a little confusing: it’s called ‘The Surin’ but is on the next beach called Pansea Beach‘. I forgot to ask why, however, this is one of the best places in Phuket to escape your busy life! Read more

The Racha Resort

Racha Island


The Racha is a small luxury hideaway on an island near another island, twelve miles south of Phuket to be exact. Once in a while, even people living in Phuket need to get away from it all and find another little piece of paradise. Read more

Trisara Villas

near Naithon Beach

Secluded and luxurious, Trisara is one of the ultimate romantic resorts and best hotel in Phuket. We know, we mostly have romantic retreats in our blog, but isn’t it one of the best way to enjoy such a tropical paradise? Read more

Twinpalms Phuket

Surin Beach

Not many hotels in Phuket have set the trend for other hotels to follow, but Twinpalms is one of them. Creative and original in many ways, Twinpalms doesn’t have beachfront access, doesn’t have sea view and is not cheap either. But from the opening day, it was an instant success. Read more

Villa Royale

Kata Noi Beach


We stayed several times at unique Villa Royale in Kata Noi Beach. The concept is very original as part of the hotel was a privately owned house, and each suite is different. One even comes with its wine cellar. Also, Villa Royale features one of the best and Most Romantic Restaurants in Phuket. Read more

Westin Siray Bay Resort

Koh Sirey

I never thought I would be standing in a trendy beach resort of Phuket while looking at Phuket Island. Westin Siray Bay Resort is a new hotel built on a hillside of Koh Sirey, a tiny island on the east coast of Phuket. From your balcony, at night you will be surprised how close the city lights of Phuket Town are! Read more
