6 BEST HOTELS IN MAI KHAO BEACH 🧳 Where to stay in Maikhao?

Where to Stay on Mai Khao Beach?

Hotels in Mai Khao Beach benefit from a unique location in Phuket, a perfect place if you prefer to stay away from the crowd. The beach is part of a protected national park; you will meet almost no one on the beach past the Phuket airport area.

If you are after an isolated romantic escape, Mai Khao Beach could be your place. Enjoy magnificent sunset and long walks on the beach with only the sound of the waves as a background.

The Geography of Mai Khao Beach

Mai Khao Beach is 11 kilometres long. Most of the hotels are 5-star, and as you can expect, they come with a price and fantastic service, features, and rooms. There are a couple of options if you are on a tighter budget.

Note also that those hotels are in a national park, so they must be a few meters away from the sand. You need to cross a hundred meters of grass to reach the beach, which is not much, but it changes the perception slightly. There are also no beach chairs and just a couple of bars and restaurants on the beach.

The bathtub and entire bathroom are outdoors, making it a fun experience.

Sala also has a beautiful spa with a program for couples. The restaurants, bars and the main pool area are close to the sea with just 50 m of lawn to cross on the beach—a very relaxing place to hide away from your loved one. Read more

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early until I settled in Phuket in 1994. For the past 30 years, my passion for photography and my curiosity have taken me to every corner of Phuket, Bangkok and everywhere I could go in Thailand. My goal is to share my discoveries, photos and tips to help travellers plan their holidays by making Phuket 101 as easy as possible to use for everyone!
