Sea Views and Soft Sand between your toes
Four of Phuket Laguna Resorts sit absolute beach front on Bang Tao Bay
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.
Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort – Patong Beach
Le Meridien 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 new man.
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 of 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.
Best Western Bang Tao Beach Resort – Bang Tao Beach
Sitting right on Bang Tao Beach, my favorite 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. One of the best features here is the variety of beach shack 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.
Kamala Beach Resort – Kamala Beach
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, location.
Merlin Beach Resort – Patong
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.
