Phuket Hotel Recommendations

On Jamie's Phuket Blog over the years I have added some recommended hotels on the 3 main beaches (Patong, Karon and Kata) and also hotels away from the crowds in quieter areas of Phuket. Yes, there are lots of quiet areas .. it's kind of the point of this blog to show that there's more to Phuket than just a few busy beaches! Phuket is a big island (bigger than many people realise), and it's worth spending some time to research the best hotels and the right location for you. I've been in Phuket since 1999, so I hope the Phuket hotel info on the blog is useful for you :)

Phuket Hotels - Where to Book Online

I recommend looking for information and checking for available Phuket hotels at Agoda.com or Booking.com. There are thousands of hotel reviews and the websites are very easy to use. I have used Agoda for our holiday hotel bookings and for lots of hotel information. If you book and pay for your hotel with Agoda or Booking.com you can leave reviews. I trust these reviews more than TripAdvisor where anyone can review a hotel or attraction (even if they have not been there!).

Phuket Town

Not next to the beach, but if you want a taste of the real Phuket or want to see some of Phuket's biggest festivals, or like a bit of history and culture, then Phuket Town is worth a look for a hotel - maybe not for your whole holiday, but for a bit of balance. I like Phuket Town .. actually it's my favourite part of Phuket!

Khao Lak Hotels

While Khao Lak is not part of Phuket (it's in Phang Nga province), it's not far away, about 70km north of Phuket airport, which is the nearest airport to Khao Lak, so basically we can consider Khao Lak hotels as being part of "greater" Phuket, since the whole region is serviced by Phuket Airport. Khao Lak is very quiet, there are a lot of very nice hotels on the beach, there is very little in the way of nightlife, a good place to just relax. It's also within easy reach of Khao Sok national park and Phang Nga Bay.

More Phuket hotel suggestions to be blogged as time goes by... Please note that this is a blog, and some of the hotel reviews were made years ago - things can change. For most hotels you can find hundreds of new guest reviews at the Agoda site made by people who have stayed at these hotels recently, well worth checking the reviews! If you have a question about Phuket hotels, please do ask on my Phuket Blog Facebook Page. I will try to answer! See you in Phuket!
