Maikhao Dream Villa was a truly tranquil and luxurious choice for a family getaway. The decadent yet cozy villas are owned by the Centara Group and offer all the comfort and world class service you would expect from the trustworthy five star brand. Our two bedroom pool villa featured two spacious en-suite bedrooms, an open lounge, dining area, and kitchen, and a large outdoor space complete with jacuzzi and swimming pool. We were treated to breakfasts in bed, poolside lunches, dreamy sunsets, and friendly service throughout our stay. You have all you need to isolate and relax but a pristine beach and all of Phuket’s sights are also on your front step. We highly recommend this property for families who are in search of a home away from home while visiting idyllic Phuket.

We are always looking for luxurious accommodation that is also functional and suitable for those travelling with young children. Having travelled with Ever and River since they were babies we know the importance of luxury fused with comfort and TwinPalms always ticks these boxes. We absolutely love their property adjacent to Surin Beach so decided to check out Twinpalms Montazure during our time in Phuket. Set on picturesque Kamala Beach we were treated to stunning sunsets, crystal blue waves, and a beautiful long sandy stretch on our doorstep. The two bedroom beachfront suite is one of the biggest we’ve seen with two spacious en-suite bedrooms, a large open dining and lounge area, and stunning sea views. We had large dressing rooms to store the many suitcases and a deep bath that was perfectly indulgent after a day at the beach. The highlight was our sprawling private outdoor area encompassing a dining table and refreshing pool. We felt complete seclusion and tranquility but had direct access to the main resort pool and beach. Families will be happy to hear there are two large resort pools for guests, and a stylish beachfront restaurant ideal for leisurely breakfasts and cozy dinners. The staff are consistently kind and accommodating ensuring we felt right at home throughout out stay. A highly recommended choice for a family getaway or even long term stays.

This was our second visit to The Slate Phuket and we were lucky enough to check out their incredible pool villas during this stay. The luxurious five star villas are some of the most decadent in Phuket and perfect if you are craving privacy and tranquility. The secure gate opens to a tropical oasis meticulously designed and maintained. I loved the mix of usable indoor and outdoor areas and the insanely decadent private pool which was a true highlight of our holiday. The master bedroom is housed separately in a quiet and ambient space. You are treated to an indulgent king size bed, huge jacuzzi bath, and stylish interiors. There’s plenty of space to unwind and relax and even add extra beds if you’re travelling with kids. The indoor lounge area is a cozy and elegant space for evening drinks or in-villa dinners. You also have the benefit of an in-villa massage room and relaxing sauna and steam room. Much of my time was spent soaking up the sunshine on the plush couches and we delved into mouthwatering breakfasts and hearty lunches underneath the trees beside our own pool.

There aren’t many reasons to leave your villa, especially as your butler will ensure everything you need is delivered in a timely manner, but The Slate is also a world class resort. Check out their award winning restaurants and five star spa or take a plunge in one of the main resort pools. Tour the grounds and be captivated by the impressive Bill Bensley designed architecture and walk a few steps to Nai Yang Beach to sample a few local street food stands or try the many watersports they have on offer. All of Phuket’s sights, shops, and eateries are only a short drive away and you’ll find yourself right at home when you return to the sanctuary of your villa. If you are craving a luxury getaway in a unique Phuket property, The Slate will ensure you have a trip to remember.

We were instantly charmed by the sophisticated lounge, stylish and decadent room and the sprawling swimming pool set right on Kamala Beach. Our spacious balcony overlooked sweeping views of the Andaman Sea and we were able to catch the picturesque sunset each evening. Our children loved going from pool to beach and partaking in engaging activities at the welcoming Kids Corner. Dining was a true highlight of our stay with mouthwatering breakfasts, a delectable Sunday Brunch, and high quality vibrant dishes at Pine Beach Bar. The staff were helpful, accommodating, and always remembered personal preferences while ensuring we had a comfortable five star experience.

We couldn’t resist returning to The Racha, one of the dreamiest islands we’ve stayed while traveling around Thailand. Only a short boat ride from the center of Phuket and you’ll step into an idyllic paradise. We are always in awe of the turquoise clear waters, abundance of sea life, and luxurious five star facilities. Families will feel right at home in the two bedroom pool villa where you’ll have plenty of space to unwind and relax. Days were spent hopping from the picturesque resort pools to the white sand beach and then to the privacy of our own infinity pool. The Racha will go out of their way to set up special dining experiences and personalized days to ensure you have an unforgettable stay. If you’re visiting Phuket, a few nights at The Racha is a must to see one of the island’s most beautiful destinations.

We had such an amazing time on our 2nd visit to Marriott Nai Yang. The last time we visited River was only a baby so we loved reminiscing about the previous trip as well as make new memories as a family. The staff were welcoming as always ensuring we felt right at home and always supplied everything we needed throughout our stay. As we were travelling during the pandemic we were grateful for all the safety and hygiene measures as well as the staff setting up private kids activities for Ever and River in the comfort of our villa. Our stunning Beachfront Villa was ideal for families with two huge en-suite bedrooms, a cozy lounge, tons of outdoor space, a private pool, and direct access to child friendly Nai Yang Beach. No visit to Phuket is complete without dinner at Big Fish and we are happy to report the food was even better than our last visit.

You’ll be spoilt for choice with things to do, complimentary watersports, huge resort pools, games for the kids, and a relaxing spa for the parents to indulge. If you are in search of a family friendly beach destination with world class facilities and service, you and your family will have an unforgettable time at Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, Nai Yang Beach.

What a vibrant family friendly resort boasting direct access to stunning Kamala Beach. Novotel is always great if you’re traveling with little ones and Novotel Phuket Kamala Beach was no exception. Our suite featured a separate room great for creating an extra bed for young children and they were kindly greeted with a plethora of games and toys to keep them happy and occupied throughout our stay. We loved going from beach to pool each day and dining at the relaxed all day dining restaurant which served some of the best comfort food on the island. On The Roof, their rooftop eatery, was a memorable spot to enjoy picturesque sunsets and every member of staff went out of their way to ensure all our requests were met. If you are looking for affordable family rooms, trusted service, and prime location at the end of one of Phuket’s most popular beaches you can’t go wrong with Novotel Phuket Kamala Beach.

We felt right at home the minute we walked into Diamond Cliff Resort’s stunning two bedroom pool villa. The fusion of traditional Thai architecture alongside grand European accents made for a stylish yet rustic ambiance. We fully made use of having two large separate bedrooms, a sprawling lounge and dining area overlooking sea views and especially the fully equipped kitchen. Decadent details included the insanely deep jacuzzi bath, in villa sauna, and of course the beautiful private infinity pool perched above Patong.

If you can manage to pull yourself away from the luxurious villa the resort offers so much for your family. From mouthwatering dining destinations and two resort pools, to a fully staffed Kids Club and even the opportunity to dress in traditional Thai dress for an unforgettable photo opportunity. Not only will you be staying in the lap of luxury you’ll find it easy to explore Phuket right from your front step. I truly loved how the resort and staff integrated Thai culture throughout the property ensuring you enjoy a culturally rich and indulgent five star stay.

Travel has changed a lot in the past year and many of us who crave holidays and luxury trips now also value privacy and isolation alongside incredible service. Banyan Tree’s Double Pool Villas offer the ultimate private villa experience while still benefiting from the perks of staying in a five star resort at the heart of Phuket. As soon as you set foot through the grand entrance of the sprawling two bedroom Double Pool Villa, you know you’ll find it hard to leave. Located on the picture perfect lake you are treated to a long private pool complete with jacuzzi and beds for lounging in the sun. The vast villa boasts two large ensuite bedrooms, a separate lounge and dining area, a variety of usable outdoor spaces to relax and dine, and even a fully equipped kitchen if you feel like preparing your own meals. The grand master bedroom is surrounded by it’s own tranquil pool creating a calm oasis for rest and slumber. A small lounge area off the second bedroom is easily transformed into an office or kids play area and beautifully designed spaces allow in plenty of light and air creating a sense of grandeur. If you are looking to indulge within your villa staff can set up decadent afternoon teas and mouthwatering in villa bbqs complete with private chef. No request went unanswered and although we were within minutes of Phuket’s popular beaches, restaurants and shopping we found it hard to want to depart the comfort of our home away from home. For world class luxury and beautiful design in one of Phuket’s most well loved resorts there’s not much else that can beat a stay at a Double Pool Villa at Banyan Tree Phuket.
