Where To Stay In Phuket Thailand

Hi Guys,
So sorry for the hold up in getting out my Thailand where to stay travel guide to you all. It’s been two weeks since I got back from Thailand but it feels as if I just got back. It left such a beautiful impact on my travel life and I cannot begin to express how amazing the trip was.
So, for those of you that follow me on Instagram would know that we (my fiance + I) stayed in Phuket. We spent six (6) nights and my goodness, it was not enough. We needed at least 10 days to really dive into a lot of what Phuket has to offer.

For the six nights we stayed at three hotels so that we could experience different service and so I’m writing this review of each hotel just in case you guys are planning a trip to Phuket, Thailand anytime soon. I’ll do a another post next week of what I wore and what I did while I was there so stay tuned.
The first two nights we stayed at Baba Beach Club. This hotel was a dream. The property was so clean, relaxing, and luxurious. Baba Beach club offers resort style living but with maximum privacy and personal staffing. It’s also a music lovers hotel as they often have weekly live performances and they play music throughout the hotel. We even cozied up in bed while listening to some dope beats. They also have their own private beach just steps from the hotel property. That’s where I shot this epic drone shot. Literally, no one was on the beach but us. We especially enjoyed the main pool swimming and just lounging, lazily. Our villa came with its own private attendant who was absolutely amazing, his name is Fluke and he took such good care of us. I mean, at the drop of a call he was there. Fluke ran me the most amazing bath after a long day of relaxing and swimming (sounds stressful right?) ha! He even packed our suitcases before we left. He folded everything so well I was afraid to take anything out of my suitcase. Talk about luxury service. They have additional amenities such as restaurants, gold course, and bikes to ride around. We took a quick bike ride up to a bridge on our last day and it was fun.
Let’s talk about our villa. It was beyond beautiful. It smelled like essential oil heaven, stocked complimentary pantry, and it opened right to the main pool. It’s two floors, downstairs on the main floor was the living room and kitchen area and upstairs we had a one bedroom, beautiful en-suite bathroom and closet. All facing the main pool. I especially loved the decor of this hotel. The pillows and sheets were soft and comfortable. It was PERFECT! The staff was AHHHMAZING, beyond warm and welcoming and super attentive. I cannot begin to explain the service we received and how incomparable it was. My fiance and I loved Baba Beach and we’re definitely going back.
Next we stayed at Movenpick Bangtao Hotel & Resort. A complete different vibe from the first hotel but beautiful and exclusive in its own right. This was definitely a much bigger resort and definitely had a more family vibe. There were plenty of families vacationing with their kids and it made for fun spot for everyone.
The room was beautiful and exclusive. We had our own private pool which we absolutely enjoyed, a beautiful living room, kitchen, a massive room and en-suite bathroom. The room also had an off deck, the perfect spot for watching the sunset. The food was immaculate-both breakfast and restaurant dining. I have to say they served the best food. What was cool is that we learned Muy Thai (Thai Boxing) while we were there. We took an hour class that kicked our butts but was so much fun. So happy we did it! This hotel also has beach access just across the street, easy peasy!
The third and final hotel we stayed at was Thavorn Palm Beach Resort. Thavorn was pretty cozy and unique. It had Thai exterior design with colonial interior decor in the rooms. I loved the cute sleek colonial details and the infusion of both styles. That was genius architectural design. This resort also boasts a lovely family resort option. It has a few beautiful gardens and lots of fun and gorgeous animals-parrots, turtles...I watched as the kids beamed and lit up interacting with the animals. I loved strolling the property, all the gardens and lush beauty. It is painted all white which made for perfect color among the lush tropics.
We had a beautiful romantic sunset dinner dinner at Old Siam Thai restaurant and it was everything. They had both buffet and menu options. We opted for seafood buffet and it did not disappoint.
Thavorn Palm Beach Resort also has the cutest coffee and ice cream shop on their property and we had to indulge. Man, it was yummy!

I hope the review of these three hotels will help you in your decision on where to stay in Phuket. Option one (Baba Beach)  is definitely for the hot, sexy, fun, and luxury traveler. Yes, kids are also welcome. Option two (Movenpick Bangtao) is definitely family friendly yet attracts singles and couples easily. Option three (Thavorn Palm Beach Resort) definitely is most family friendly as there's so much to do with the kids there. I also love that this hotel was closest to local town that’s within walking distance but more on that in follow-up post.
If you head over to my Instagram page, you can check out my "Thailand highlights" tab for all the fun video snaps including a tour of each hotel room.

Let me know if you have any questions at all on these three hotels especially if you’re making a decision on where to stay based on your needs. Leave me a comment below or email me at styleweekender@gmail.com. I’m happy to help.
