Plan your holiday in PhuketA coveted Southeast Asian treasure, Phuket is Thailand’s only island province and its most frequented beach destination and as such there is a big choice of accommodation of all styles, qualities and experience. Secret Retreats has curated a shortlist of Phuket boutique hotels on the beach and hotels on islands near Phuket where you can be assured of wonderful experiences and excellent hospitality in unique properties. All Secret Retreats member hotels are privately owned, and independent properties united with a passion for Asia both in their support of sustainable and responsible tourism within their destinations, and in their hospitality styles and the local experiences they offer. Luxury boutique hotel Phuket style, the perfect combination.
Phuket is an island, a province, and very much a region of contrasts. Blessed with a rich variety of natural beauty it is a great region to explore, from the tranquil turquoise waters, white sandy beaches, and world-renowned diving sites, to the soaring limestone cliffs and iconic karst limestone scenery within the surrounding seascapes and the lush tropical forests. Head to Phuket’s ‘Old Town’ in the east of the island and take in the century-old Sino-Portuguese architecture, or head to Phuket’s revered landmark Big Buddha and on to Promthep Cape for its famed sunset views. And don’t miss Wat Chalong to experience a range of cultural highlights. Delightful cuisines and numerous annual festivals, including Loi Krathong, Songkran and the astonishing Phuket Vegetarian Festival, all form part of the unique, fascinating and rich variety that makes up the Phuket experience.
Popular watersports in Phuket include deep sea fishing, jet skiing, parasailing, windsurfing, sailing, sea kayaking through caves and whitewater rafting. Land activities also abound. In addition to enjoying three world class golf courses, travellers can ride an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) through plantations and forest, hike along one of the many jungle trails, or wind it all down a little and take a Thai cooking class.
Your enticing journey to the “Pearl of the Andaman” awaits...

It is a resort that welcomes the world which is why when looking for serenity and seclusion local knowledge goes a long way, this is where the Secret Retreats concierge team can help you to find the best boutique hotels in Phuket or the best area to stay in Phuket for couples or families or even help you plan a Phang Nga or Ao Nang cruise.
Boutique hotels in Phuket dot the island and can be found in the nightlife destination of Patong, on the family-friendly beaches of Kata, the lagoon resorts of Bangtao Beach, in the Old Town and everywhere in between. The island is well prepared for travellers of all types and you’ll be spoilt for choice. If you’re looking for a quiet beach resort in Phuket then Mai Khao Beach may be a good choice.

Best resorts near PhuketIf you’re looking for the best resorts near Phuket that offer the non-touristy Phuket, the places where nature is still unspoilt and you’re far from the crowds, you might be interested in getting away from the main island itself and heading up the coast a little to Phang Nga or to one of the quiet islands off Phuket.
Since most visitors opt to stay at a beachfront hotel in Phuket, the hotels on islands near Phuket offer far more tranquillity and privacy. While some are popular with day-trippers, even the busiest ones like Raya or Koh Yao Yai and Koh Yao Noi clear out in the evenings, becoming tranquil havens.
North of Phuket, Thailand you’ll find the serene island of Koh Phra Thong. Discover the Golden Buddha Beach Resort, one of the best island resorts near Phuket. Surrounded by nothing but coconut groves, nature and turquoise waters, this is one of the best areas to stay in Phuket for couples that want to get away from it all, as well as one of the best areas to stay in Phuket for families. Small and large bungalows dotted along the 12-kilometre stretch of otherwise uninhabited beach offer plenty of privacy but a clubhouse, spa and restaurant are available to cater to your every need.
