Awake to Luxury – Phuket Hotels Top Picks

Gosh, where to start? There is, as you can imagine, a vast array of accommodation options in Phuket. Depending on what type of holiday you are planning, there is definitely an option for all occasions and budgets. Here is my top three choices for residing in luxury, but do check out hotels in Phuket for a wider selection of hotels.

Banyan Tree, Phuket

1. Radisson Blu Plaza Resort

Situated on Phuket’s south east coast in a beautiful beachfront location, you’ll find this stylish hotel. The hotel is decorated in a contemporary Thai style with each room boasting a gorgeous balcony with spectacular views of the Andaman Sea. You’ll find it impossible not to relax here; not only will you be surrounded by stylish decors and comfort, the beautiful Talay Spa village offers every treatment thinkable at reasonable prices. One reason people choose to travel to Thailand is for the guaranteed sunshine and whist you’re working up a swat sipping cocktails and getting pampered, you’ll be comforted to know that there are three freeform pools to cool off in and plenty of luxurious space to relax by the pools. For those of you who prefer the sea, the Panwa Beach waters are calm and shallow – perfect for that afternoon paddle.


2. Banyan Tree

Understated luxury is the theme of this hotel; you’ll find the most peaceful, design-led, secluded yet spacious setting at Banyan Tree resort set on the Bang Tao Bay around a lagoon. For those wishing to combine relaxation with activity, there are unparalleled leisure facilities including 3 tennis courts, non-motorised water sports, a lap and freeform pool and the Laguna Phuket Golf Club is also close by. If you’re lucky enough to be staying in the Pool Villas in the Banyan Tree Spa Sanctuary,, you won’t tire of being able to step from you bed to your very own private pool in the morning. Furthermore, not only are these villas much larger, your ‘floating’ bedroom will be hard to leave as you gently float on a lily pond in excluded tranquillity.


3. Dusit Thani Laguna

Nestled within a white sandy beach against acres of tropical gardens, this hidden gem affords ultimate luxury and an unforgettable culinary experience. You’ll reside in a traditional Thai surrounds and sample the finest Thai cuisine in one of five restaurants. This place is good for the soul, mind and body as you have the option of using a state of the art fitness centre, tennis courts, a jogging track and a large pool. This hotel is a must if you are wishing to combine a well-being break with an authentic Thailand experience.
