Top tips for booking Phuket resorts for families 

Here are a few TOP TIPS and things to watch out for with Phuket hotels and resorts:

  • Book Phuket resorts for families early to avoid disappointment. Some of the more popular resorts book up months in advance – especially in high season. Get in there early.
  • Several hotels and resorts in Phuket are pinned in the wrong location on Google Maps. Watch out for this – use our map to help you find the right hotel!
  • Many hotels in Phuket have very similar names so it can be confusing. We have tried to let you know in this article where there may be confusion due to hotels with similar names. To avoid mistakes use our links and map. 
  • Phuket is bigger than it looks on a map(!) Travelling up and down Phuket can take several hours and actually costs quite a bit. Work out what you want to see and do in Phuket and pick a location that works with your itinerary. In General, there is more to do in the south of Phuket. 
  • Don’t presume that every beach in Phuket is amazing. Just because your resort is near a beach this does not guarantee soft, clean golden sands and crystal clear waters. We have made a super helpful guide on the BEST Phuket Beaches for families
  • Always choose a fully refundable policy – this is especially important with the uncertainty of travel at present. Ideally the later they allow cancellations the better. 
  • Not all facilities and services will necessarily be available to every room type. So you can end up booking a room and then be told you cannot use a facility or service. This can feel very frustrating – so if there is a facility that attracts you (e.g. an infinity pool or members lounge) – check with the hotel that it is included with your room type. 
  • Not all of the booking options include breakfast – if you want breakfast to be included with your booking, make sure this is listed on the option that you pay for.

What are the best areas to stay in Phuket for families?

Things to do in Phuket with kids

The best areas to stay depend on what you are looking for. Here is a general guide to the best areas for different types of activities:

Watersports, beaches and trekkingKata, Nai Harn and Rawai
Culture, temples and local lifeChalong, Kathu, Phuket town and Old town
Adventure activities and outdoor pursuitsKathu and Kata

You will notice several of our Phuket family resorts are located in Bang Tao and at Mai Khao (northwest Phuket). Bang Tao is not really a Phuket town but is more of a complex of resorts and inland lakes. It is not a great spot for local food and bars. There are not many activities in these areas of Phuket. If you are staying in Bang Tao or Mai Khao either pick a resort that you plan to mostly stay at or consider car rental.

There is also a children’s menu available. 

Negatives: The location of the resort is quite remote and the shuttle bus doesn’t go far. We recommend renting a car if you are planning to stay here. Also, with some much amazing local food available in Phuket, personally we wouldn’t find the kitchen much use. 

Nearby attractions: Bang Tao beach, Surin Beach and Kamala bay are all relatively close. You can also visit Blue tree Lagoon and Adventure Village nearby. Banana beach and the Ton Sai waterfall are not too far from this resort. 

9 Pullman Phuket Resort (Panwa Beach) 

The Pullman Phuket Resort is a top pick Phuket resort for families offering access to quiet, clean and calm beaches. Seriously, check out their incredible beach front pool villa – it’s worth a look even if you don’t plan to stay here!

Important: Don’t confuse this hotel with the Phuket Pullman Arcadia on Naithon Beach. We’re talking about the one on the Panwa Cape in the southeast of Phuket.

Negatives: The food is on the expensive side for what you get

Nearby attractions: Ao Yon beach (one of our favourite beaches for families in Phuket), The Phuket Aquarium, Phuket old town, Monkey Hill and Rang hill are all relatively nearby. 

10 Angsana Laguna Resort (Bang Tao)

The Angsana Laguna Resort is one of the most prominent resorts in the Bang Tao bay. Close to the beach and surrounded by a lake, this resort is not short of spectacular views. A long lazy river pool winds around the stylish Angsana resort. The spacious rooms feature abstract artwork and modern Thai decor. The luxurious Angsana Spa offers Thai therapies and massage.

They offer more than sixty educational classes, activities and games from treasure hunt and face painting to cooking classes. Angsana Resort also has three different playgrounds to cater for children of different ages. 

Negatives: Being located in Bang Tao means there are not many bars, restaurants and local food in the area. So you will be dependent on what the resort has to offer (and the resort prices) unless you’re set up with a car rental. 

Nearby attractions: Bang Tao beach, Surin Beach and Kamala bay are all relatively close. You can also easily get to the epic Blue tree Lagoon and Adventure Village nearby. Banana beach and the Ton Sai waterfall are not too far from this resort.

Activities vary from day to day and include arts, craft, games, face painting and sports activities. Children under 4 years old must be supervised. Mövenpick also offers a baby sitting service for an additional fee. This is one of the most unique Phuket resorts for families. 

Important: There is also a Mövenpick Resort in Bang Tao. We’re recommending the one in Karon bay for families.

Negatives: Karon bay doesn’t have the same buzz as Patong or Kata bay nearby. It is very hard to find anything negative about this place. As an older resort it may not have the fresh feel of some of the newer resorts. But overall this place is stunning and remarkable. 

Nearby attractions: Nearby you can visit Patong, Kata bay – great for watersports and surfing, Black Rock (trekking) and the Karon viewpoint.

12 Ozo Phuket (Kata Bay)

The Ozo Phuket does family without compromising style and luxury. Kata beach is the best surf beach in Phuket. The Ozo Phuket is ideal for an adventurous family. They offer a range of packages and experiences to help families connect with Phuket and have a fun adventure-filled holiday. You must be itching to know how much it costs to stay at such an epic hotel?

Ozo Phuket family resort

The resort has 3 swimming pools including a large waterslide and a kids pool with water play and a smaller waterslide. The rooms at Ozo Phuket are comfortable, stylish and baby friendly with excellent blinds and environmental control to get the temperature and light levels perfect. Their restaurant is also excellent with high chairs, kids options and super tasty Asian and Western choices. Here is a FULL review of Ozo Phuket.

Negatives: It’s hard to find a negative with such an epic hotel – the reviews speak for themselves. The main pool is large but relatively shallow at 1.2m.

Nearby attractions: Kata beach (great for surfing and watersports), The Big Buddha (you can trek from Kata), Karon view point and Black Rock (great trekking spot) are all nearby. The Ozo is also not to far from Nai Harn Beach (a top pick for families) and Rawai. 

13 Anantara Vacation Club Mai Khao Phuket (Mai Khao) 

The Anantara Vacation Club has everything you could expect and want in a 5 star luxury family resort. Their facilities are excellent with various play spaces dedicated to children. The stylish resort is a warm asian style with a spash of art deco. There is a range of dining options including western and Asian food.

They also have an impressive program of activities at their Kids Club – complementary for children aged 4-12 years old from 9am – 6pm.

Important: This one can be a little confusing. There is also an Antara Mai Khao Villas resort nearby. There is also an Antara Layan resort further south in Phuket.

Negatives: Mai Khao is in the north tip of Phuket and is a long way from many of the activities and attractions in Phuket. 

Nearby attractions: Mai Khao beach and Sirinat National Park.

14 Centara Grand Beach Resort (Karon bay)

Grand is the right word to capture this impressive resort. This beautiful 5 star resort is perfect for a luxurious family holiday. The Centara Grand resort is stylish and spacious with beautiful decor. It has 4 outdoor swimming pools and 7 dining options. Centara Grand also has excellent provision for kids and families – don’t miss the Kids Club with a program of engaging activities for children.

15 Trisara Villas (Nai Thon Beach)

trisara villas Phuket holiday

A superlative of luxury and decadence, the Trisara Villas are discreetly located in the jungle north of Bang Tao beach. The Trisara Villas are the most expensive of the Phuket resorts for families that we recommend. But even at these high prices you will be amazed how far your money can go in Thailand. I bet you’re curious to find out the latest prices at the Trisara Villas now. Check out their Oceanfront Residence with a private infinity pool to see what we mean! The villas are designed to help you feel intimately immersed in nature, whilst being entirely rested in luxurious comfort.

The kid’s clubhouse, open every day 8.30am – 5.30pm and staffed by childcare professionals. They offer an engaging range of games, arts and crafts, outdoor activities, computer learning, reading and video libraries.

Negatives: If you are keen to do lots of activities in the south of Phuket, Trisara is a little out of the way – you would need a rental car to explore. However, if you’re staying on a resort like this you probably wont want to leave!

Nearby attractions: Bang Tao Beach, Banana Beach and waterfall. Blue Tree lagoon and adventure village is located in the Bang Tao area. Ton Sai waterfall is not too far away.

Honourable mentions

We wanted to give a couple of honourable mentions. Both of these places have been noted for their great family activities and facilities. But sadly neither of these resorts makes the list for the BEST Phuket Resorts for families:

Splash Beach Resort (Maikhao Phuket)

You may see that some guides recommend the Splash Beach Resort for families. And we can see why. It is pretty awesome. But we don’t think this compares with the other resorts in this article. Splash beach can be noisy due to the airport. It may be novel to have planes flying so nearby – but this could also detract from guests’ experience. Also, despite advertising the amazing Splash Jungle water park they do not include complimentary water park entry for guests. So if you’re interested in the waterpark you may as well stay at your preferred accommodation and take a day trip here. 

Graceland Resort and Spa (Patong)

Again this is a great 5 star resort for families which even includes a bowling alley (this is totally unique in Phuket as far as we can tell). Located in Patong this is a top location in Phuket for nightlife and good vibes. However, due to the popular location this resort can get busy and intense at times. Also some guests have reported rude treatment from the staff and staff not understanding English fully. So saldy, although this is a great choice for families, Graceland hasn’t quite made the list for us. 

We will only recommend resorts and hotels which are genuinely excellent. We’re totally open to things changing over time so if you’re looking for Phuket Resorts for families keep an eye on these guys too.
