11 Best Muay Thai Camps in Phuket

What are the best Muay Thai gyms in Phuket?

Several Muay Thai training camps have opened in Phuket, with thousands of people arriving on the island every year to learn this ancient martial art form and get fit while enjoying beach time.

Muay Thai kickboxing has been practised in Thailand for centuries, and over the past decade, it’s become a world-famous sport along with the explosion of mixed martial arts (MMA).

Each Muay Thai camp is a bit different in focus and offerings, but most have weekly and monthly programmes and the chance for intensive training sessions with champion Muay Thai boxers. If you’re unsure which Phuket Muay Thai gym is best for you, try one class or get a day pass to get a feel of the place before committing to a full training programme.

Here are some of the top Muay Thai camps in Phuket that’ll get you into fighting shape, some of which also do MMA and other fitness training. Several are on the now-famous Soi Ta-Iad, also known as Soi Fitness, not far from Wat Chalong.
