Phuket resorts and hotels come in all different sizes, types and price ranges. Some are small, some are on the beach and others are budgeted for the backpacker type. If you’re searching for a resort that’s highly rated, part of a major resort chain, offers access to dozens of amenity options, and is suitable for romantic couples, business personal and families, then you’ll find that the options dwindle down quicker than you may like.
With that said, you’ll be very happy to find that the JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa is exactly what you’re looking for. A rather large resort with 265 rooms to choose from, 14 different dining and drink options, and a vast array of activities to enjoy on-site and in the nearby area, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better value. That’s because you can get all this starting off at only US$225 per night for two people.
A room at the JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa (taxes and fees extra) per night for two people.
Available only through Agoda, this nightly rate is for the month of January, with rate increases possible during other portions of the year. With this rate, you’ll get access to a 5-star rated room, lots of dining options (including a few bars), 3 swimming pools, a jogging trail, a full service spa and close access to numerous local activities, including golf and snorkeling.
Large 5-star rooms with top amenities
All together there are 7 different room types to select from. This particular January rate is for the Deluxe Garden room. In this room you’ll find wood floors, a mini bar for those nights in, a TV and DVD player to enjoy, a safe, an iron if your clothes become wrinkled during travel, a robe and slippers, and a hairdryer. You’ll also find large bathrooms with an oversized soaking tub and a separate shower.
If you hate the thought of being without internet during your travels, you’ll be delighted to hear that the rooms also feature high-speed internet access.
Several swimming pools, dining options, and a spa
One of the biggest appeals of this resort are the 3 different swimming pools on-site. But those are the only thing to look forward to. You’ll also find lots of different dining options right on-site, making the need to venture out for dinner completely unnecessary. You can even opt for a private romantic dinner right on Mai Khao Beach. Continuing the romance is the Mandara Spa complex. Here you’ll find 16 private double treatment suites offering a variety of treatments and massages as well as a full service beauty salon.
If your idea of a good time includes a few ocean and land activities, you’ll find both at this resort. In the ocean you’ll have the chance to snorkel, scuba dive, sail and kayak. Back on land you’ll find tennis, volleyball and table tennis. There are also lots of great things to do nearby, including golf.
