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, cruise to more idyllic islands, go party if you want, have a candlelight dinner right on the beach, and the list goes on and on. We wrote a few 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.

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 on a hill at the south end of the superb Kata Beach, and from up there, every Sky Villa offers impressive views of 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 a long time to experience it, but the day finally arrived. Read more

Pretty much everything:

  • Beautiful design
  • Attention to every single detail

7. 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 resort’s name is a little confusing: it’s called ‘The Surin’ but is on the next beach, Pansea Beach. We don’t know why; however, this is one of the best places in Phuket to escape your busy life! Read more

Location: Pansea Beach next to Surin Beach

Hotel Summary & Guests Score
