9 Most Romantic Hotels 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 actually 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 an amazing destination for a couple 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 candle light 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 amazing villas to enjoy. We spent some weekends at all the hotels listed on this page, and will definitely spend some more! Here is the list of our favourite romantic hotels in Phuket.

1. Trisara Villas

(Location: Naithon Beach)

Secluded and luxurious, Trisara is known to be one of the ultimate romantic resorts in Phuket.

Why we like it:

  • Very large villas with superb infinity pools and ocean views
  • Almost complete privacy (not 100% in all villas)
  • Incredible villa design, some even have in-house spa table
  • Staff is extremely well trained
  • Excellent restaurants with superb sunset view
  • Atmosphere feels very exclusive

What you should know:

  • Trisara is quite isolated (45 mn from the famous Patong/Kata/Karon beaches)
  • Beach is small
  • Price is obviously high

2. Kata Rocks

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 located on a hill at the south end of the superb Kata Beach and from up there every Sky Villa offers amazing 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.

What we loved

Pretty much everything:

  • Very attractive 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.
  • Obviously the price tag is very high
  • Kata Beach is a little far

3. Sala Phuket Resort

( location Mai Khao Beach)

Sala Phuket Resort on Mai Khao Beach is one of our favourite escape on the island. It really is a romantic resort entirely designed for couples.  It does not come cheap but can be relatively affordable if you wait for special offers.

What we love:

  • 100 % privacy in your villa
  • Very large pool with own garden and sun loungers
  • Fancy outdoor bathroom with huge open air bath tub and sofas.
  • Villa nicely designed with very high ceilings
  • The hotel is on a superb 11 km deserted beach
  • Very large common pool and restaurant near the beach

What you should know:

  • Pool can be cold in low season!
  • The villas are surrounded by high walls for a total privacy so don’t expect any views
  • Mai Khao is a little far from everything (which can be a positive point when on a romantic break)

4. The Shore at Katathani

(location: Kata Noi beach)

The Shore at Katathani

The Shore at Katathani is one of the most exclusive villas resort on Phuket. The hotel combines effortlessly all the ingredients for a perfect escape: a location right on a beach, villas with jaw dropping views, genuinely caring staff, an excellent restaurant, a good spa and countless small details that makes the difference between just a regular ‘hotel stay’ and a truly unforgettable holiday.

What we love:

  • Superb villa design with incredible views of Kata Noi Beach right from your bed!
  • Good size private infinity pool with embedded Sala and loungers. You can walk from your bed to the pool
  • Set above one of the most beautiful beaches of Phuket, great for swimming and snorkeling
  • Large common pool and restaurant above the beach
  • Overall the hotel has beautiful setting.

What you should know:

  • The private pools are not 100% private so naked swimming is not recommended 😉
  • The villas are on a hillside so if you are not fit, you will need to call a buggy (which is actually ok)
  • Plan long in advance, the resort is often fully booked

5. Six Senses Hideway Yao Noi

(Location: Koh Yao Noi)

evason-koh-yao-phuket

Six Senses Hideaway Yao Noi on Koh Yao Island is not your usual ‘Phuket Resort’, it is a destination in itself. Designed for  couples in search of an escape from the stress of the big city, this is a perfect hideaway for a romantic holiday…

What we loved

  • Unique setting on a remote luxuriant island with striking views of Phang Nga Bay
  • Villas are build entirely with natural materials
  • Beautifully designed rooms with large wooden terraces and private pool surrounded by foliage
  • Superb restaurants
  • Private transfers by boat from Phuket island are a cool way to immerse you into your romantic holiday
  • Very large and excellent spa

What you should know

  • No real beach, just a small sandy area
  • Not much to do around so you probably will spend most of your time in the resort
  • The photos used by the hotel to advertise are shot from the very expensive top floor suite. The view from your room will probably be a lot more limited

6. The Surin

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 built on the next beach called Pansea Beach‘. I forgot to ask why, however, this is one of the best place in Phuket to escape your busy life! Read more


7. Banyan Tree Phuket

(location: Bangtao Beach)

Banyan Tree Phuket

Banyan Tree Phuket on Bangtao Beach is one the most luxurious of the five resorts in the Laguna Complex. Open since almost two decades, Banyan Tree is still recognized as one of the ultimate resort experience in Asia.

What we loved

  • 100% privacy in your villa
  • Great selection of  villas to choose from, all with very large pools
  • Recognized to have the best spa on the island
  • Beautiful Thai architecture. If you came to experience Thailand, this is your place
  • Excellent restaurants

What you should know

  • Of course it’s not cheap!
  • No direct beach: the beach is on the other side on the road and it can be quite a walk

8. The Nai Harn

(location: Nai Harn Beach)

The Nai Harn Phuket

The Nai Harn Phuket is in such a unique location and a classic timeless design, the resort is extremely popular. Build on the hillside of Nai Harn Beach, it is the only resort having such a unique view on this fabulous bay. The hotel might not be exactly on the beach, but a short path will take you to it in just a minute… and what beach! A large strip of white and powdery sand ending in a turquoise blue bay.

What you will like:

  • Amazing views on Nai Harn Bay from every room
  • Rooms are well designed with a large terrace and an immense day bed
  • Several great restaurants to hang at any time of the day
  • Immense rooftop with striking views
  • One of the best beaches in Phuket with great snorkeling

What you should know

  • Rooms don’t have private pools and terraces don’t offer much privacy
  • Pool and sun loungers area is quite small

9. The Racha Resort

(location: Racha Island)

racha

The Racha is a small luxury hideaway on an island near another island, twelve miles south of Phuket to be exact. Once in a while, even people living in Phuket need to get away from it all and find another little piece of paradise.

What we loved

  • Wonderful escape on a paradise island
  • Large minimalist rooms
  • Superb beach and great snorkeling
  • Good facilities

What you should know

  • Activities are limited (it’s really a tiny island)
  • The beach can get quite busy during the day as speedboats and dive boat anchor in the bay
