A 5-Star Resort on a Private Beach

Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort has the rare privilege to be the only hotel to have access to Karon Noi Beach, one of the most desirable beaches of Phuket, just next to Patong Beach. It happens to have the most beautiful sand and most amazing blue sea on the island, but since only the hotel guests have access, it’s not well known from most tourists. With 470 rooms and suites, Le Meridien Phuket is enormous, however, the hotel is well designed and has some great features and outlets.

The beach

Tucked in a cove between Patong and Karon Beach, Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort found this little paradise long ago. While there are legally no private beaches in Phuket, you can own the land around it and restrict the access. The only way to enjoy this be is to be a guest at the hotel. Read more

The rooms

There are 12 room types to choose from and all the rooms come with amazing sea views.  sea view and several restaurants to choose from. It used to feature one of the few Jim Thompson Silk shops found on the island, but Jim Thompson is now everywhere.


There are 7 restaurants to choose from, some of which have gained a great reputation along the years: Portofino is an Italian award-winning restaurant. Ariake serves authentic Japanese cuisine and Wang Warin specialises in Thai cuisine. The resort also serves a beach lunch barbecue, probably the best way to enjoy your tropical holiday with a perfect tropical background.

Relax Beach Bar

Relax Beach Bar at Le Meridien Phuket

Relax beach bar is the perfect place to end the day right on the beach, with a softer background music than other beach clubs of Phuket. The venue hosts occasional dinners and buffet and promotional cocktail specialities. Outside guests are welcome.


Apart from the fantastic beach, Le Meridien is known for having the largest swimming pool on the island with a total water surface of 4,700 sqm, the largest on the island!

Water sports are also the prominent features at Le Meridien Phuket, with Hobbie Cats, kayaks and windsurfing available all day long. Some annoying jet skis also stand by for guests, but the beach is vast, so it won’t disturb you much. If you are active but prefer to land activities, try archery, it is fun, even for beginners. Their fitness is one of the largest and best equipped in Phuket. We did play in their squash courts, one of the very few found on the island, but despite the air-con, it can get seriously hot. You might consider trying tennis on their four outdoor courts.

Karon Noi Beach

Le Meridien Phuket, of course, does have a very large spa, but which hotel in Phuket doesn’t have one nowadays. Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort is also a good resort for families and great for conventions and special events. Its location near Patong makes it the ideal choice if you want to get access to nightlife, then enjoy the quietest beach on the island during the day!
