Recommended Family Hotels
Holiday Inn Phuket Resort (luxury) – Patong
The most family-friendly hotel in Patong. Great kids club, 3 swimming pools (2 that are very kid-friendly), a play area, and a water slide. Just across from the beach and perfect location for shopping the Patong malls and markets.

Patong Merlin Hotel Phuket (moderate) – Patong
4 beautiful swimming pools. Good sized family rooms (which are 2 connecting rooms). Great location close to the shops and restaurants of Patong – but also right on the beach.

Siam Palm Apartments (moderate) – Patong
2 bedroom apartments are spacious and have fully equipped kitchens. Pool area has lots of shade (maybe too much if you’re really looking for sun but perfect for kids). Good location for restaurants.

Andaman Seaview Hotel (moderate) – Karon
Large rooms (though a little dated), 2 beautiful pools, and across the street from an idyllic stretch of beach. Great breakfast.

Bauman Casa Resort (moderate) – Karon
A simple clean budget hotel that’s good for families. Nice pool. Quiet location. Not a lot of character but good value. Free wifi.

Katathani Phuket Beach Resort (luxury) – Kata
Large resort with 6 swimming pools and 6 restaurants. Interconnecting junior suites are available for large groups. Awesome beach in front of the hotel. The kids’ club is fun.

Boathouse on Kata Beach (luxury) – Kata

Centara Kata Resort Phuket (moderate) – Kata
Family suites are huge (1 king bed and 3 singles) and have a kitchenette. Kids club is nice for kids younger than 7 or 8. There are 3 pools (one is an adult pool, another has water slides). Free shuttle to the beach but the walk isn’t far.

Banyan Tree Phuket (luxury) – Bang Thao
Huge 2-bedroom villas (some with private pool). Great if you’re after a semi-secluded family getaway. Far from Phuket’s touristy spots in the south (which may be good or bad). Bicycles available and several restaurants and beach bars are within an easy walk or cycle. The beach here is wonderful. Great kid-friendly pool.

Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket (luxury) – Bang Thao
One bedroom suites and two-bedroom villas (with private pool) are both good for families. A couple of baby elephants roam along the beach (usually in the morning). Pool is huge and kid-friendly.

JW Marriott Resort & Spa (luxury) – Mai Khao
One-bedroom suites are large. There’s a babysitting service and a top-notch kids’ club (with lots to do). The beach is quiet and secluded. 3 pools – one of which is adults only.

Centara West Sands Resort (moderate) – Mai Khao
Suites are huge and have full kitchens. Free access to the fantastic water park Splash Jungle which is part of the resort. There’s not a lot nearby so I wouldn’t stay here for longer than 2 or 3 days but the water slides make it a very fun treat for the kids.
