If there is one thing Phuket is famous for, it’s the beautiful beach-front resorts that line the shores. The island is one of the most famous and most-visited holiday destinations in Asia. There are so many wonderful hotels located right on the beach, ranging from five-star luxury resorts to more affordable hotel accommodations. Regardless of where tourists choose to stay, a holiday in one of Phuket’s beach hotels will not disappoint.
Most of the beach-front resorts and hotels are located along the western coastline of Phuket, where a majority of the island’s beach destinations can be found. There are also some very beautiful hotels to explore on the quieter eastern side of the island.
Not far from the airport in the north-western part of Phuket, there are several famous beaches and beach-front resorts. Spots like Nai Thon and Nai Yang are home to some great hotels, including Adamas Resort and Spa and the Angel of Naithon. Just to the south is Bang Tao, where one of the longest beaches in Phuket is located. Here, guests can find some of the most exclusive beach-front hotels, including the luxurious Banyan Tree Resort, Laguna Resort complex, and Sheraton Grande.
Kata and Karon Beaches are famous holiday spots, but few hotels are actually located on the beach itself. The Kata Beach Hotel is one of the only resorts sitting right on the beachfront. Another is the splendid, five-star Katathani Resort.
The south and southeast part of the island are not as well-known, but still boast some great resorts right on the beach. The Royal Phuket Yacht Club is a high-end option on Nai Han Beach, while a much cheaper but still gorgeous resort is Ao Sane Bungalows. At the beautiful Cape Panwa area, there is a much quieter spot with small beach coves, offering a very private experience. Novotel Cape Panwa is part of the prestigious Accor chain, and even though it has a rocky beach, it is still a spectacular spot. Other popular locations are the Cape Panwa Hotel and Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel.
