I lived in Phuket for about a year and I think I have a good feel for the place. I took the island for what it is and never felt too depressed about the state of development because I had never seen the island before the hotels went up. People often complain about what has happened to Phuket, but I honestly believe that it’s still a great island and I’d recommend any of my friends to visit. One thing I’m often asked about is the state of Phuket hotels and how much they cost.

While I haven’t stayed in many Phuket hotels, I did write some articles and update some guides with regards to the cost of a hotel room in Phuket. The scene is much the same as Bangkok. There are Phuket hotel rooms to cover a wide range of budgets. There are spots for backpackers, digs for people with a little more to spend and luxurious pads for the rich and famous.

Phuket is a large island. If I only had a week to stay there, I’d choose the location of my hotel carefully. Let’s say I was after a wild weekend of drinking and late-night partying. For that, I may as well stay in Patong where the majority of the bars and clubs are. Patong is a lively area that you will either love or hate. I never had a problem with it, although I wouldn’t want to live there.

I once rented a Phuket hotel room in Phuket Town. It was a simple place, the name of which escapes me, but it was much the same as the majority of the cheap Phuket hotels in Phuket Town. It was pleasant, the room was comfortable and there was hot water. I couldn’t complain.

If I had the money, there are a few Phuket hotels that I would go for every time. One of those is the Indigo Pearl resort in Nai Yang. When you stay somewhere such as Nai Yang, Mai Khao or Cape Panwa, you know that you’re going to be away from the masses of tourists who flock to Patong, Kata and Karon. I stayed at Indigo Pearl a few times and I loved it.

Another place that springs to mind when thinking of quality Phuket resorts is Sri Panwa at Cape Panwa. It’s more of a small community of villas than a resort. It epitomizes luxury and has the price tag to match. But still, some day I may have the money for such a splurge.

Travel around Phuket isn’t especially easy, so if I were traveling to the island I’d make it a point not to stay anywhere too remote. The first thing to do when you arrive is to get some transport, either in the form of a motorbike or car.

I’ve never booked Phuket hotels online, although I have used Agoda and Hotel Travel to book Bangkok hotels. The number of booking agents available makes it easy enough to compare prices.

Overall, I think Phuket has about as diverse a range of hotels as you are likely to find outside of Bangkok. If you’re into spas then, wow, Phuket will be like heaven. There’s definitely something for every when it comes to Phuket hotels.

  1. Easy on the SEO! The trick is to make it look less obvious :)

    In all seriousness, nothing wrong with what you're doing – I'd just make it look a bit more natural.
