For some people going to a tropical
island for vacation requires staying where there is a view of the
sea or being right on the sea. Otherwise, why go? Phuket won't
disappoint you! The resorts and hotels on this page are all absolute
beachfront with direct access to the sand and water.
LeMeridien is a one of a kind resort -
sitting on its own beach. It also has a first class spa - one of the best
on the island. I had a "lymph draining" massage there a few years ago -
and as weird as it sounds - it was great! And reasonably priced. I was a
This resort is great for people who want
to be close to the night life action of Patong - but still be away from
the noise and bustle. You'll find the little canyon the resort sits in
very relaxing. I think it is a first class resort - and quite a good
bargain for the price.

The location is quite convenient. The drive to
Patong will be about 5 minutes, to Karon about 5 minutes, and to Kata
Beach about ten minutes.
Kata Beach is the best
beach on the island. It is a
must visit when relatives and friends come to the island. And many
of the resident foreigners consider it THE beach when it comes time for
sun bathing or just enjoying the sea. Kata Beach Resort has one of the best breakfast
buffets on the island - another local favorite mine. The resort is set so
that almost all the rooms have great views of the sea.
Kata Beach still retains the flavor of
the early days of Phuket - small shops - and quite a few great
restaurants. The drive to Patong will be about 15 minutes.

beach - with good views from most rooms is the Bang Tao Beach
Resort and Spa. When you can catch a special - this resort is a very good
value (check the Best Western lowest rate guarantee at the bottom left of
this page). One of the best features here - is the variety of
restaurants up and down Bang Tao Beach.
Actually, the restaurant
at the hotel is great - but we all like a little variety - and if you
cruise Bang Tao Beach from one end to the other - you'll find many great
restaurants - right on the sea.
At night you can hear the sea breaking -
a soothing way to lull to sleep. The drive to Patong
Beach for night life fans - will be about 35 minutes.
A great value and often
overlooked, the Kamala Beach Resort sits right at the center of Kamala
Beach, an easy walk into town to the south, and lots of great beach shack
restaurants line the beach just to the north. Location, location,

With 170 meters of virtually
private beach front at Tri-Trang Beach, the
Merlin Beach Resort is a
favorite for people who want to be close in to Patong, but still far
enough away for a peaceful and relaxing stay.
The Merlin sits on the peninsula
at the south end of Patong Bay, and he newly accessible Paradise Beach,
farther down the newly opened road is rapidly becoming a favorite of those
in the know.
Phuket is all about the sea - find a nice
setting and your vacation will be greatly enhanced.
