(Last Updated On: March 5, 2018)

The mountainous province of Phuket is one of Thailand’s most visited places and it’s easy to see why. It’s incredibly picturesque with gorgeous beaches framed by green hills, blue waters and a rich marine life. Perhaps it’s this blend of surf and forests that has made it such a huge hit among travelers. You can hike, explore rainforests, play water sports and just bum around at the beach. It really is the life!

 

 

It’s not a stretch of the imagination to say that Phuket is like a mini paradise. Long stretches of clean white sand, palm trees swaying lazily and warm sunshine lull you into a dream that you don’t want to escape from. For those who love to be surrounded by green, national parks offer some of the best nature experiences. And, those who love the thrill of nighttime excitement need only head to one of the many bars and nightclubs to get their pulses racing.

Phuket really has it all and we don’t just mean tourist attractions. If you love living in the lap of luxury you can find numerous resorts and villas that have all the trimmings. They exude class and elegance and promise the best comfort. Yet while upscale resorts dot the region, it also has many budget accommodations that beautifully blend affordability with style and modern amenities. So, no matter what lifestyle is you’ll find villas, apartments and studios that perfectly meet it.

Here’s a look at our top picks of luxury and budget accommodations in beautiful Phuket!

From infinity pools and private beaches to villa staff and chefs – these grand abodes will make your holiday even more memorable. We’ve picked four that you’d love to stay at. Check them out!

1) Opulence Meets Quiet Refuge at Villa Atika
