Where to Stay in Mai Khao Beach?
Mai Khao Beach hotels situation
Most of the hotels are 5-stars, and as you can expect, they come with a price, but also with fantastic service, features and rooms. If you are on a tighter budget, there are a couple of options. Note also that because those hotels are in a national park, they are required to be a few meters away from the sand. You need to cross a hundred meter of grass to reach the beach itself, which is not much but it changes the perception a little. There are also no beach chairs and just a couple of bars and restaurants on the beach.
Sala Phuket is a little different from any other hotel in Mai Khao. The main feature is the pool villas with total privacy. Each villa features a oversized pool, larger than the bedroom itself, which is not often the case when you book a pool villa. The bathtub and entire bathroom are outdoors, making it a fun experience. Sala also has a beautiful spa with a program for couples. Restaurants, bar and main pool, are close to the sea with just 50 m of lawn to cross to be on the beach. A very relaxing place to hide away with your loved one. Read more here or see the Rates for Sala Phuket
