10 Most Romantic Hotels in Phuket We Actually Tried

Best Hotels for Honeymoon in Phuket

What are the most romantic hotels in Phuket? This is another frequent question we are happy to answer. Here are the best hotels we experienced in Phuket. We know there are more, but we only write about places we personally stayed at, so watch this page as it grows.

Phuket is a fantastic destination for couples and has so much to offer. You can stay in one of the most exclusive villas on the island, take a cruise to more idyllic islands, go party if you want to, have a candlelight dinner right on the beach, and the list goes on and on. We wrote a couple of pages about romance in Phuket and the most romantic restaurants in Phuket. But most of all, you need the right hotel and Phuket certainly has some fantastic villas to enjoy. We spent some weekends at all the hotels listed on this page, and will spend some more! Here is the list of our favourite romantic hotels in Phuket.

1. Trisara Villas

Naithon Beach

Secluded and luxurious, Trisara is known to be one of the ultimate romantic resorts in Phuket, one of the best ways to enjoy this tropical paradise island. All 39 villas at Trisara are designed to surround you with such comfort you will want to stay and enjoy every minute of your stay. Large rooms with oversized beds, bright and large bathrooms, expect to find all the features of a five-star resort and a lot more! Best of all, each villa comes with a fantastic infinity pool.

2. Kata Rocks

Kata Beach

Kata Rocks

Kata Rocks is changing the face of luxury accommodation in Phuket: more than just a hotel stay, it’s an unforgettable holiday experience. The hotel is on a hill at the south end of the superb Kata Beach, and from up there every Sky Villa offers impressive views on the Andaman Sea. Kata Rocks is so beautifully designed; it’s a real photo playground, especially the famous umbrellas in the infinity pool. And because the resort has become so popular, we had to wait for a long time to experience it, but the day had finally arrived. Read more

What we loved

Pretty much everything:

  • Beautiful design
  • Attention to every single detail
  • Superb infinity pools
  • Service second to none

What we didn’t like as much

  • The hillside makes it hard to go from your room to the main areas or to drive out to town. You pretty much need to call a buggy for any movement.
  • The price tag is very high
  • There is no beach, and Kata Beach is a little far

3. Sri Panwa

Cape Panwa

Sri Panwa Phuket Pool Villa

Sri Panwa is one of Phuket most exclusive hotels. Everyone we know heard of it, but not many actually stayed there, and we finally did. This resort is built on a hillside of the remote Cape Panwa and is best known for its incredible rooftop bar called Baba Nest. The pool villas are vast and with a large infinity pool in front of the bedroom. It is simply jaw-dropping. Read more

Why we like it:

  • The villas are fantastic! you will not want to leave them
  • The views are superb
  • The rooftop bar is amazing (but hard to book)
  • The staff is as good as it gets!
  • Five great restaurants are excellent
  • The hotel is on an isolated cape on the south-east of the island of Phuket, far from any crowd

What you should know:

  • The beach is tiny and almost disappears at high tide
  • The hotel is on an isolated cape on the south-east of the island of Phuket, far from everything

4. The Shore at Katathani

 Kata Noi Beach

The Shore at Katathani

The Shore at Katathani is one of the most exclusive villas resort on Phuket.

What you should know:

7. The Surin

Pansea Beach next to Surin Beach

The Surin Resort

The Surin is a beautifully designed hotel with a long history and an amazing location on Pansea beach in Phuket. It’s also one of the first luxury hotels on the island. The name of the resort is a little confusing: it’s called ‘The Surin’ but is on the next beach called Pansea Beach‘. I forgot to ask why, however, this is one of the best places in Phuket to escape your busy life!
