Beautiful Phuket will not disappoint.

The beautiful island of Phuket is located on the western coast of Thailand. Nestled in the Andaman Sea, this island is very closely connected to mainland Thailand. The island has a permanent population of approximately 600,000. The economy is mostly supported by rubber and palm oil plantations, which cover the majority of the island. The island is dotted with extraordinary examples of Buddhist history and Thai architecture. For example, the monument of the Two Heroines is a must-see. The Wat Chalong Buddhist Temple is a stunning place, dedicated to Luong Pho Cham, who helped end a Chinese rebellion in the late 19th century.

Visitors have a variety of options when booking Phuket accommodation through HomeAway. HomeAway offers over 1,000 rentals on the island of Phuket alone. These properties range from high-end villas in Phuket – ideally suited to large groups travelling together – to small Phuket apartments in the city centres, ideal for romantic getaway vacationers.

Things to do

Thailand National Museum:

The Thailand National Museum is the perfect place to learn about Thai National History. The legend of the two heroines is of particular interest. A 7.5ft-tall statue of Vishnu is the museum's prize possession, and dates back to the 9th century. It was discovered nearly 100 years ago in Takua Pa.

Khao Lak-Lam Ru National Park:

The Khao Lak-Lam Ru National park is an area filled with stunning landscapes and views. The mangroves, valleys, cliffs, and estuaries are home to native animals such as gibbons, hornbills, and Asiatic black bears. Guided tours are available, as are long-tail boat trips. Nearby deserted beaches are fun to visit on motorbikes.

John Gray's Seacanoe:

Visitors will enjoy John Gray's Seacanoe. Packages include activities such as kayaking, boat tours, and starlight tours. Located north of the town of Phuket, John Gray's Seacanoe now has several copycats on the island. However this family-run company is one of the most well reputed on the island.

Phuket Scuba Club:

Travellers will enjoy a unique travelling experience at the Phuket Scuba Club. Whether beginners or experts, the company is well versed in classes and tours for all levels of training. Two groups leave daily at 11am and 3pm for both Racha Yai and Racha Noi Shark Point. First time divers can swim with the fish.

Atsumi Healing:

Atsumi Healing Spa is a fasting and detox cleansing centre on Phuket. Water, juice, and herb fasting packages are available, as well as Thai and deep-tissue massages. Meditation and yoga classes are also available.

Sala Resort and Spa:

The Sala Resort and Spa is a modern full-service spa. Located on the grounds of a villa on Phuket, the art-deco style and Portuguese art create a hip atmosphere. Services like full body scrubs and aromatherapy massages are available, and the black granite infinity pool completes the experience.

Weather on Phuket

Phuket lies on the western side of Thailand, and hence has monsoon season from October to January. Vacations during this time are not recommended, as the rain is basically constant, and flooding can become somewhat problematic for visitors and locals alike. During the dry and cool season, in the earliest part of the calendar year, temperatures average 20-32°C.

Travel to Phuket

Travelling to Phuket is fairly uncomplicated. Flights arrive daily from the mainland at Phuket International Airport (HKT). From here, taxis are available across the entire island. Alternatively, the 402 Highway bridges Phuket to the mainland. Travellers can reach 402 by way of Highway 4, which spans east/west across Thailand. Various destinations, such as several secluded beaches, are only reachable by water taxi.

Their helper Ying was a fantastic cook and great with my 3 young boys. I really recommend this villa for a restful holiday and it is a beautiful location.

Not a thing to think about or a task to undertake. We all acknowledged the wonderful team and give thanks to them all anticipating our every need. Because of the care given to every detail, we were able to relax and enjoy each other’s company as a family and create some very special memories. So a big thankyou to everyone involved.
