When the locals say “mai pen rai” – no worries – they really mean it! Phuket is truly a place where you can cast off the cares of the world and indulge your senses in a vivid feast of sights, sounds and smells.
This compact island in the Andaman Sea off the southern coast of Thailand measures just 48 by 21 kilometres, yet it offers a diverse range of attractions and experiences. World-class restaurants compete for diners with street markets, secluded coves overlook busy water sports playgrounds, and high-rollers share the beach with gap year hippies.
The heart of the action can be found along the western shoreline, from the pulsating nightlife of Patong Beach to the family-friendly Kamala Beach, one of the best spots on the island for safe, year-round swimming. Hire a snorkel to make the most of the crystal-clear, calm waters just off the coast, or ride the waves on a bodyboard or jet ski.
The cluster of six Phi Phi Islands provide spectacular natural sights, with towering cliffs, dense forest and deep turquoise sea. Rent a kayak to explore some of the more remote islands independently, or take a guided boat tour around Ao Phang Nga National Park to view the striking limestone formations of “James Bond Island”, where The Man with the Golden Gun was filmed.
Many of Phuket’s prettiest beaches have escaped development altogether, thanks to their remote locations off the tourist track. Laem Singh Beach has retained its unspoilt appearance despite being discovered by the international jet set; even the celebrity hangout Laem Singh Lounge Bar is built in the traditional style and carefully concealed behind the trees. For the ultimate in unwinding, it’s hard to imagine anywhere more perfect than Kata Noi Beach, which offers beachside massages and panoramic fine dining.
The sacred sites of the Big Buddha and the Samnak Song Monastery in the hills behind Nai Harn Beach offer a privileged glimpse into the spiritual side of island life. For local colour, you can’t beat the street markets, where you can pick up some beautiful traditional handicrafts.
The climate in Phuket is hot and humid, and the high season is in the cooler months from November to May. The best way to get around is by taxi or tuk-tuk, or hire a bicycle for maximum flexibility. Car parking spaces are limited, especially at peak times and popular sites.
Huge rooms, great food, very affordable, place is a little far from Phuket, but we wanted that.

Hotel kids friendly with pool slide. Relaxing stay with options of Thai restaurants nearby the hotel.
A wonderful stay for 10 days with my husband and two toddlers in both a beachside double suite and a family garden villa. Would recommend the family garden villa hands down as the beachside suite is directly on the beach road. Great location for small toddlers to discover caterpillars, and lizards ...
Friendly staff, excellent beach, love the place coz it is good for relaxation!! Awesome sunset .... it so beautiful.
My room was spacious and well equipped. There are a lot of steps. So not appropriate for anyone with limited mobility. The resorts swimming pools are lovely. I treated myself to a three day spa and the staff were excellent and managed to cure my sore back. The food was good but for me not real Thai ...
