How is Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort?
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 from most tourists. The hotel conveniently hides in a green hill just 3 kilometres south of Patong Beach and 3 km north of Karon Beach.
With 470 rooms and suites and such a location, Le Meridien Phuket will please all travellers, especially couples and families. The hotel is well designed and with many award-winning outlets and has some great features, making it one of the best hotels in Phuket.
A long, 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 while there are no private beaches in Phuket, the hotel owns the entire land around it. Read more
Le Meridien has 470 rooms and suites divided into 12 room types, and 316 rooms come with fantastic sea views.
Dining, Restaurants and Bars
There are seven restaurants to choose from, some of which have gained an excellent reputation along 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, seafood on the beach, probably the best way to enjoy your holiday with a perfect tropical background.
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 other beach clubs of Phuket. The venue hosts occasional dinners and buffet and promotional cocktail specialities. Outside guests are welcome the beach club. Read more
Activities at Le Meridien Phuket
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 that 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 hot. You might consider trying tennis on their four outdoor courts.
Le Meridien Phuket, of course, does have an extensive spa, but which hotel in Phuket doesn’t have one nowadays. The 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!
