Find the Best Family Hotel in Phuket

Traveling to Phuket with a family can be a hugely enriching experience, but it is one that needs some planning and preparation. From finding the best family hotel in Phuket to figuring out how to spend your days and where to eat, you’ll need to do a little research before you land.

As much as relaxing on the beach or beside the pool all day long might sound great for mum and dad, kids will quickly get bored and yearn for a change of scenery. Don’t panic; Phuket offers a wealth of fun activities for children young and old.

Come mealtimes, avoid any battles, and have a list of kid-friendly eateries at hand to choose from. From burger joints and ice cream parlors to pizza havens and steak houses, we’ll list out the best places to feed hungry children.

And lastly, you’ll want to pick a hotel that offers excellent on-site amenities and services, but also provides easy access to nearby shops, parks, cafes, restaurants, and attractions. As a great as a secluded resort is for honeymooners, it might not be the most practical thing for a busy family.

And so, this article presents you with everything you need to know about Phuket if you are planning a family holiday here. We’ve broken our information up into three useful sections: Play, Eat, and Stay.


Phuket is an excellent destination for children; there are plenty of things to see and do for kids of all ages, from toddlers through to teenagers. Best of all, there is a great deal of variety on offer to ensure that there is something for nearly every taste and budget.

So, let’s jump on it and look at the top ten activities guaranteed to have your kids clambering to return to Phuket year after year!

  • Zobring at Rollerball

Phuket is a very family-friendly destination; Thai people are renowned for their love of children, and this extends to foreign ones as well. You will find a friendly smile and warm greeting at all manner of cafes, restaurants and roadside stalls across the island. However, there are certain establishments that we feel are more ideal than others, in terms of their suitability for younger diners. Therefore, the following list details what we consider to be the best restaurants for families in Phuket, in terms of taste, value-for-money, service (can they adapt to picky eaters!), menu offerings, amenities (highchairs) and general ambiance.
