Phuket is one of Thailand’s dreamiest destinations – think palm-fringed white sand beaches, turquoise waters and oodles of sunshine. So, unsurprisingly, it’s somewhere you can enjoy well enough without treating yourself to a stay in a lavish hotel – but where’s the fun in that?
Personally, I think if you really want to make the most of a setting like this, you should go all out. And with that in mind, I’ve put together a list of the most luxurious resorts and hotels in Phuket you can stay in – get ready to start daydreaming…
Angsana Laguna Phuket
Best for: Families
Where: The Laguna enclave on the north-west coast of Phuket
This beautiful resort has an amazing location, from where you can enjoy the absolutely stunning Bang Tao Bay. The lagoons and sandy beaches here are to die for, while the complex itself has heaps of great facilities, including an 18-hole golf course, spa, freshwater swimming pool and kids’ club.
What I think is fantastic about this place is that it balances what it has to offer children and adults really well. So, coming here doesn’t feel like you’re compromising luxury for the sake of staying somewhere family-friendly.
And, while both kids and adults will find plenty in the way of entertainment, families are also well looked after in terms of accommodation. There are several types of rooms/suites you can choose from, but the one and two-bedroom lofts are generally considered best for families.
Now, while I’ve said it’s ideal for parents and kids, I don’t really think anyone can go too far wrong by staying here. So, if you’re planning to travel with your partner or friends, there’s no need torule this hotel out.
