11 Great Hotels on islands near Phuket 🏝️

Where to stay on islands near Phuket?

Staying in a hotel on an island near Phuket seems to be a strange idea at first, but if you know Phuket or if you have been here many times, an escape to a remote island offers something unique, a tropical charm you won’t find in Phuket. Phuket is relatively large and has grown a lot, and fast. The larger roads, the many buildings and the frequent traffic congestion in the south of the island have somehow affected the island feel. Here is a list of popular hotels on islands near Phuket.

Hotel Summary
The BeachThe beach is fantastic, superb blue water and powedery sand.
The Hotel5-star resort with private villas, some with pools.
The Facilities1 swimming pool, 2 restaurants and 2 bars. Fitness and great spa.
What's Around?A few seaside bar and restaurants only but very relaxing. Because Koh Racha is an island, don't expect to go around Phuket Island: you would have to book a daytrip for the Big Buddha and Old Streets of Phuket Town.
Who is it for?Travellers who want an island experience away from the bustle of Phuket.
Worth Noticing The beach can be busy with daytrippers during the day, but it will be all yours after 4 or 5 pm!
PriceHigh because of popularity. Book early in high season (December to April)
