This secluded five-star beach escape is close to all the vibrant energy of Patong and Phuket Old Town, while still being far enough away to enjoy some uninterrupted peace and tranquillity.

Discover your own piece of paradise tucked away in lively Patong, one of Phuket’s most vibrant areas. The four-star Patong Merlin Hotel is just across the road from the beach, and a short walk away from infamous party-central Bangla Road. Enjoy four swimming pools, a spa, scenic dining options overlooking the ocean, and a Kids Club too. For a feast of local eats, head to Banzaan Food Market nearby.

Phuket Graceland Resort & Spa

This one is for the whole family! Located on beautiful Patong Beach, it offers plenty of opportunities for seaside fun. Back at the resort, excitement abounds with a bowling alley, four big swimming pools, a health club, and more. Kids can also go wild at the Kids Club, while you sip cocktails at the ocean-view bar, enjoy a pamper-filled spa session or take a Thai cooking class. Take a trip to the fantastic UpsideDown House nearby where the rooms are turned on their heads and in-room puzzles will challenge the whole family.
