An island of luxury and simple pleasures, extreme sports and relaxing spas, delectable and unique-tasting foods, ancient and modern architecture, frenzied and tranquil beaches, Phuket Island is, in every aspect, a land of contradicting elements. Yet, when these elements are joined together, it comes together as one word, pleasure.
Choosing the best Phuket island resort for your holidays can be tedious if you only use travel guides and recommendations from local communities. You might end up doing the same thing most tourists do prior to arriving at the island: spend too much time Internet research because there are hundreds of Phuket beach hotels and Phuket holiday villas scattered all over the island.
If you want a shortcut to finding the very best Phuket island resort and hotels, the first thing you need to do is filter your search using certain categories.
Location and atmosphere
Phuket houses some of the rowdiest and quietest resorts in Thailand. Lively Phuket beach hotels and resorts are mostly found in Phuket’s west coast, while quieter Phuket holiday villas and resorts are predominant in the east coast and the neighboring islands between Krabi and Phuket. The east coast also offers some of the most exclusive Phuket holiday villa and resorts, which can mostly be found near the Phang Nga Bay National Park and surrounding islets.
