10 AMAZING Phuket Hotels with Private Pools 2024

Here are the BEST Phuket Hotels with Private Pools in 2024. Each of these hotels offers suites (rooms or villas) with a swimming pool that is for your private use only. No sharing with other guests and no restricted hours. 

For each hotel we recommend the BEST suite that includes a private pool. All of the suites we recommend are suitable for at least two adults sharing. Most of these Phuket hotels with private pools also have larger suites that can  accommodate families or groups.

Super important: Most of the Phuket hotels with private pools that we recommend in this article ALSO have cheaper room options that do not include a private pool. So, if you only want a private pool you will need to book the specific suites that we recommend OR check carefully that your choice does include a private pool. 

One more thing – if you are looking for Phuket hotels with private pools, there are many single villa properties that offer private pools. However these options tend to lack the service and benefits of larger hotels so we have focussed on actual hotels here. We have included a few single villa properties at the end of this article for those who may be interested.

Why is it so hard to find Phuket hotels with private pools? 

Phuket holiday sunset

Many hotels advertise “private pools” but this just means that the pool is reserved for hotel guests. But this isn’t really private as you inevitably end up sharing the pool with other hotel guests and hotel swimming pools can get quite crowded. What’s more you may only be allowed to use the pool between certain hours. In this article we share the best Phuket hotels with private pools that are only for your personal use. 

Many of the pools have views of the ocean, jungles or beaches. All of the private pools are outdoor swimming pools – ideal in the tropical Phuket climate. In some cases the private pools are pretty big and may include private areas for sunbathing around your pool. The prices are higher than standard hotels and the suites are normally impressive, decadent and luxurious.

We use affiliate links which means we earn a small commission if you book using our link. However there will be no extra cost for you. If you are booking a hotel – please do use our links so we can keep making awesome travel content.

A note on prices: We have listed hotels in order of roughly increasing prices. We have based our price estimates based on two adults sharing, for the pool suite that we recommend. But prices may vary depending on the season and demand.

Here are a few things to consider when booking Phuket hotels with private pools:

  • Book refundable options uncase your plans change
  • Make sure the pool is genuinely for your private use exclusively (all of our recommended hotels are)
  • Check whether free airport transfer is included with your booking
