Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort Review

Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort is a luxury resort with a unique location in Phuket, as it has private access to Karon Noi Beach. This beach is one of the loveliest beaches in Phuket and has the most beautiful sand and amazing blue sea. Only the hotel guests have access; it’s not well-known to most tourists. The hotel conveniently hides on a green hill just 3 kilometres south of Patong Beach and 3 km north of Karon Beach.

With 470 rooms, suites, and an amazing location, Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort will please all travellers, especially couples and families. The hotel is well-designed, has many award-winning outlets, and has some great features, making it one of the best hotels in Phuket.

The Beach

A long time ago, Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort found the hidden Karon Noi; a little paradise tucked between Patong and Karon Beach. The only way to enjoy this beach is to be a hotel guest because there are no private beaches in Phuket; the hotel owns the entire land. Read more

The Rooms

Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort has 470 rooms and suites divided into 12 room types, and 316 rooms come with fantastic sea views.

Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort Restaurants and Bars

There are seven restaurants to choose from, some of which have gained an excellent reputation over the years.

  • Portofino: an award-winning Italian restaurant
  • Ariake: serves authentic Japanese cuisine
  • Wang Warin: specialises in Thai cuisine
  • Pakarang Restaurant: International buffet-style dining for breakfast and dinner
  • Tonson Restaurant & Bar: International lunch, dinner and cocktails by the pool and the beach
  • La Fiamma: beach restaurant serving Italian pizza for lunch
  • Beach Barbecue: grilled meats, and seafood on the beach, are probably the best way to enjoy your holiday with a perfect tropical background.

Relax Beach Bar

Relax beach bar is the perfect place to end the day right on the beach in front of the hotel, with background music played softer than in other beach clubs in Phuket. The venue hosts occasional dinners and buffets, and promotional cocktail specialities. Outside guests are welcome to the beach club. Read more

Relax Beach Bar at Le Meridien Phuket



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

Karon Noi Beach

Of course, Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort has an extensive spa, but which hotel in Phuket doesn’t have one nowadays? The resort is also good for families and conventions, and special events. Its location near Patong makes it the ideal choice if you want access to nightlife and enjoy the quietest beach on the island during the day!
