Where to stay in Phuket

Knowing where to stay in Phuket is essential to shaping your holiday experience. Stay in Phuket Town itself and enjoy close access to the cultural highlights of the region. Alternatively, you can get away from it all by relaxing at an exclusive hotel on one of the smaller islands. Your vacation can even change depending on which beach you stay at. After all, there are places where people party until dawn and places that are more secluded and romantic.

Patong Beach

The attraction of Patong Beach is its vibrant social scene, so you can expect to find lots of hotel options. The price points can vary, so it's worth shopping around. More opulent hotels can be found along Beach Road; otherwise, many accommodation options have positioned themselves closer to all the action near Bangla Road.

Kata Beach

Soak up the Phuket nightlife without having to stay up until the sun rises by booking your time at Kata Beach. The long stretch of sand is separated by a headland into Kata Yai and Kata Noi, so people are more spread out for a less-crowded feel. Many hotels and nearby businesses also offer different activities like surfing and paddle boarding.

Karon Beach

If you love the beach but want a bit of distance from the high tide, try Karon Beach. This place strikes a good balance between lively and tranquil, as Patong and its nightlife are close by. There's a good snorkelling spot towards the southern end of the beach, too. Be sure to visit Wat Karon where a market is held twice a week.

Kamala Beach

If you're seeking total relaxation then Kamala Beach is one of the best places to stay when holidaying in Phuket. This location has a lot of affordable hotels, meaning you can spend more of your holiday budget at one of the many day spas. Be sure to indulge in a traditional Thai massage after swimming in the sea and give yourself time to refresh your mind, body, and spirit.

Phuket Town

When you want to immerse yourself in history and culture, stay in Phuket Town. The hotels here are small but full of character. Many are budget-friendly and close to the town centre or the historic Old Town district. Be sure to check out the museums, shop in the small boutiques, and eat at the bustling restaurants during your stay.

Surin Beach

If you want luxury, Surin Beach is the best area to stay at in Phuket. Millionaire mansions and exclusive hotels tastefully line this beautiful beach. Spend your days swimming or snorkelling in the clear waters, and when the sun goes down enjoy a relaxing massage and delicious dinner at your hotel.
