Thailand is a country known for its paradisiacal islands, and when you pay a visit to Phuket you’ll see why so many before you have fallen in love. The largest, most mountainous island in Thailand, Phuket is best thought of as a province; one with its own collection of cities, islands, beaches and natural areas, as well as an endless variety of activities and attractions. Phuket is also a fantastic spot for accommodation, offering everything from cheap backpacker hotels to luxury five-star resorts.
When deciding where to stay, keep in mind that the central western coast is the most famous and popular region, with much of the action centred around Patong. Head here if you’re looking for the liveliest atmosphere, night life and a solid selection of cheap hotels.
For beach resorts that boast a slightly quieter vibe, venture north to Naithon or south to Kata. Otherwise, you can make your way to the island capital of Phuket Town. Here you’ll encounter a pleasing blend of culture, art and history; the colourful buildings, family-run restaurants and arty café scene provide a refreshing contrast to the major beach resorts. As for hotels, Phuket Town is an area where you’ll find an assortment of affordable two and three-star accommodation.
If you’re seeking a truly relaxed getaway, look into booking a hotel on one of Phuket’s smaller coastal islands. Koh Maphrao (also known as Coconut Island), Koh Lon, Koh Naka Yai and Koh He are all home to luxury hotel resorts boasting facilities such as private villas, swimming pools and beaches, hotel restaurants and bars, and spa complexes.
Phuket’s islands are also easily accessed for day trip visits; from the eastern coast of the main island, Koh Maphrao can be reached by boat in just five minutes.
If you’re visiting Phuket for a golfing holiday, you’ll find that there are several excellent hotels to choose from. There are fabulous golf courses all over the island, with the Blue Canyon Country Club in the north and Laguna Golf Phuket on the western coast. Most, however, can be found in the centre of the island, between Phuket Town and Patong. A number of resorts and hotels are situated close to these courses, and many of the courses offer accommodation, too.
For travellers keen to see the sights while they're on Phuket, there are plenty of hotel options available. Stay in Kata and you’ll be close to the Big Buddha, a religious landmark that provides spectacular views of the surrounding region. Stay on Phuket’s southern tip in Rawai and you’ll be close to Promthep Cape, a glorious place to watch the sunset. For temples and museums, you’ll want to find a hotel in Phuket Town, but if it’s natural areas you’re keen to explore, beautiful Sirinat National Park is the place for you.
