Phuket is one of the most popular destinations in Thailand, and with good reason. White sandy beaches meet a turquoise sea. Once the sun goes down, beach-side bars, clubs and restaurants pulse into action.

There are endless activities and things to do in Phuket, and a huge choice of places to stay. Take the pressure off your choice with our list of the best resorts in Phuket under US$150 per night.

1. Indulge In Luxury: Beyond Resort Kata

True to its name, this sprawling resort set on Kata Beach’s golden sands goes above and beyond. If you get bored of swimming in the warm, shallow sea you can relax with a cocktail at the swim-up bar.

Rooms with balconies facing the ocean can enjoy their own private sunsets over the water with uninterrupted views to the horizon. There’s a kids’ club for travellers with young children, and an indulgent on-site spa to while away the days. It’s the perfect place to recuperate and relax.

2. For All The Family: Katathani Beach Resort

A kids’ pool with shooting jets of water will keep kids cool on hot days, and families travelling with very young children can take advantage of the on-site creche. Though it’s set away from the hustle and bustle of Phuket’s main towns, there are six restaurants within the resort to choose from serving international cuisine, so even the fussiest of young eaters will find something to satisfy their taste buds.

3. Beachfront Fantasy: Thavorn Palm Beach Resort

With a tiki-style swim-up bar, daybeds shaded by palm roofs, and the constant sound of the sea just metres from your room, there’s no doubt that you’re staying at the beach at Thavorn Palm Resort. Lush, tropical gardens filled with quirky statues of rabbits, crocodiles and elephants lead you to the caster-sugar fine sand of Karon Beach.

Should you grow tired of relaxing on the beach, or at one of the four swimming pools, it’s just a fifteen-minute drive to the buzzing nightlife and local restaurants of Patong Beach. Stay here for the best of both worlds.

4. Where The Action Is: Impiana Resort Patong

Set directly on the sands of Patong Beach, you can enjoy your days relaxing on the beach and nights on the town. This is one of the few truly beachfront resorts in Patong and is within walking distance of the buzzing bars and restaurants of this party town without the noise at night.

Patong Beach can get crowded during the day, but with a stay at Impiana Resort you can enjoy the sun, sea and sand from the hotel’s pool area, overlooking the ocean.

Set on the peaceful East Coast of Phuket at Cape Panwa, away from the party towns and crowded beaches, Amatara Wellness Resort is where you’ll find serenity. Wake up with restorative morning yoga over the lotus pond and a full on-site spa.

This resort is in the middle of nowhere, but with world-class food in the restaurants and an infinity pool overlooking the sea to while away the days in, there’s no need to leave the premises. After days with personal trainers, you can do a Thai cooking class or just relax with a sundowner on your private balcony overlooking the ocean.

8. Surrounded By Nature: Baan Krating Resort

Sure, the main attraction of Phuket are the inviting sweeps of soft sand and clear waters, but Baan Krating Resort offers something a bit different. Set above the rocky shores of the South Coast at Ao Sane Beach, this jungle retreat is the ideal place to get in touch with nature.

Natural-looking swimming pools are surrounded by lush jungle trees, and rooms are set high into the forested hills. Peering through the trees you’ll catch a glimpse of tiny secluded bays below, deserted like your own private hide-away. At night, the trees click with the sound of frogs and insects. Stay here for a unique mix of jungle retreat and secret beaches.
