Pullman Phuket Arcadia Naithon Beach Review
Pullman Phuket Arcadia Naithon Beach is a superb resort located on the still peaceful Naithon beach, a surprisingly beautiful beach away from any main road on the upper west coast of Phuket. The hotel is far from the usual crowds but not isolated and near a less known local life, making it an exciting starting point to enjoy what Phuket offers if you are not a partygoer.

At first impression, the size of Pullman Phuket Arcadia Naithon Beach isn’t evident as rooms and villas built on the hillside blend well in the natural environment. However, 277 rooms is a large resort. Everything is more extensive than in most resorts, from the rooms to the swimming pools, outlets and public areas, but it is so well designed, it never feels overwhelming. It instantly appears that architects made excellent use of the space, and walking from one outlet to another is easy.
The immense infinity pool overlooking the sandy beach of Naithon down below is a treat to the eyes. If you don’t feel like going to the beach today, this pool is a great place to spend the hot hours in loungers in the water. Even better: if you change your mind, you can easily walk from the pool down to that beach! (Direct beach access is a rare treat in Phuket hotels).
From the lobby, don’t miss the three circular sofas embedded in a water pond just above the pool and below that, once again, Naithon Beach. No doubt this is where everyone wants to sit for a cocktail at the end of the day, the perfect holiday picture that will make all your friends jealous.
The Rooms and Villas
Pullman Phuket Arcadia Naithon is a 277 rooms resort distributed in Deluxe, Grand Deluxe, Family Deluxe, Grand Ocean Suites and, best of all: fantastic pool villas. Our room was a Grand Ocean room, which certainly deserved its name: superb bedroom, large and extremely well-designed, with a sinfully comfy sea-facing bed.
A real treat in the morning. In front of the bed are a large sofa and a lovely balcony high above the sea. As Pullman Phuket Arcadis is a modern resort, guests will have the luxury of a comfortable working station, big flat TV and, most importantly, plenty of international plugs for modern travellers. No need to specify it comes with high-speed WiFi. The bathroom is also large, with a great bathtub and premium amenities.
Restaurants and Dining
The resort features three beautifully decorated restaurants with the right amount of contemporary and classic design.
Elements serve all-day dining in a vast restaurant with floor-to-ceiling windows and a huge terrace with stunning views. The most impressive is undoubtedly their breakfast buffet: Immense and varied with quality products, it makes your first meal a happy starting point, and you certainly don’t want to miss this!
Vero Trattoria & Wine Bar
We tried Vero Trattoria & Wine Bar in the evening, the Italian restaurant above Elements. It was a real treat, both sophisticated and casual at the same time, perfect for a romantic dinner with a sunset. Most guests prefer to eat outdoors to enjoy the stunning views of the Andaman Sea, but as the heat can be relatively high in May, we chose to enjoy the decor and comfort of the aircon room.
If you are too lazy to walk down the stairs, then walk to the centre of Naithon beach; Pullman Phuket Arcadia Naithon Beach provides a free shuttle every 30 mn or every hour depending on the time of the day. For further exploration, renting a car is a great option. Naithon Beach is small, which is good, but you’ll find a few bars and restaurants, a convenience store and the most beautiful fruit displays on the island of Phuket!
Note that the resort is on a hillside with plenty of stairs and is a little challenging for those with limited mobility. However, there are buggies to get to your room. Most villas are not very far and can be quite a climb, but going back to the hotel’s central area using the stairs is pretty easy and fast.
Pullman Phuket Arcadia Naithon Beach is an oasis of affordable luxury for those who like Phuket the way it used to be when it was just a small village. It’s very close to the airport, so there’s no long drive to start your holiday (not too near either, so you won’t hear planes). With its excellent restaurants, fitness, kids club and spa, Pullman Naithon is the perfect escape for those who prefer Phuket the way it used to be.
