Below we offer a Phuket hotel and resort location map to assist you with determining where on the island your chosen accommodation is based. The island is located just off Thailand's west coat in the Andaman Ocean. It is accessible via both international and domestic flights aswell as by road via the Sarason Bridge. It is surrounded by many smaller islands including Phi Phi and Koh Lanta.
In the protected waters of Phang-Nga Bay of the eastern shore small islands with untouched nature, pristine beaches and spectacular scenery dot an exotic lanscape allowing you to escape the crowds and commercial activity for an authentic and tranquil lifestyle experience. These include Koh Yao Noi featuring places like Six Senses, sister island Yao Yai featuring the amazing Santhiya Resort, Koh Bon and Koh Racha.
The majority of the best beaches to stay in Phuket are located on its western shore. Of course, all these host a plethora of hotel accommodation in Phuket ranging from 5 star luxury hotels, more budget savvy places and cheap, yet comfortable and clean options. To the northern tip of the island are secluded beaches like Nai Yang and Mai Khao featuring the luxury Sala resort and spa and Indigo Pearl. South from here is Bangtao with its 8 kilometer stretch of pristine beach and home to the five star Laguna holiday complex.
Bangtao is followed by Surin and Kamala Beaches. Surin feature top end accommodation lending it the nickname millionaires row and south of Surin Kamala Beach is relaxed, clean and quaint with easy access to other areas. Following our map south from Surin you will notice the location of Patong Beach right in the centre of the west coast. It offers an electrifying nightlife, exiting beach activities, an endless array of restaurants, bars, go-go bars, markets and a modern shopping mall.
Top hotels in Phuket's Patong area include B-Lay Tong, Amari, The Kee, Kalima Patong, Avista Hideaway, Grand Mercure and Graceland Resort among others. Patong is followed by Karon featuring a long swath of perfect beach favoured by families and romantic couples alike. It is only a quick hop from Patong, but its own array of attractions will eliminate the need to visit the Patong area too often.
Further down towards the southern tip is Kata beach. It is probably the best combination of scenic beauty and tranquility. If you want luxury hotels in Phuket directly on the beach in a sought after location, Kata is your place. On the southern tip and on the east coast, much quieter areas like Nai Harn and Rawai are found. Many boat charters depart from here to smaller nearby islands.
