Royal Phuket Yacht Club Hotel

Great service and modest rates with an ideal beachfront location

With 110 guest rooms and suites and a beachfront location near the southern tip of Phuket, the Royal Phuket Yacht Club Hotel is an ideal choice for those seeking great service and a beachfront location at a reasonable price. It’s family friendly, with a kids pool and many water sports activities in addition to the beach itself, and it’s a short walk from many nearby restaurants and shops, so guests can choose whatever they are in the mood for at any time.

The service here is definitely 5-star, and though this is not one of the newest luxury hotels on Phuket, it’s well maintained and the rooms are loaded with high-end amenities. The Naiham Beach location is also fairly close to a broader range of restaurants, bars, and shops in a short ride, and the nightlife and choices of Patong Beach are within an easy taxi ride as well. Particularly in the low season but also during the winter months, the Royal Phuket Yacht Club Hotel is one of the best value of all 5-star beach hotels on Phuket.

What the reviews say

Reviews for the Royal Phuket Yacht Club Hotel are very good to excellent, almost universally, which is a pleasant surprise considering the modest prices for its beachfront location. Nearly everyone is quite happy with the large and spotless rooms, but most of all the scenic views and direct beach access. Guests are also very pleased with the fact that there are several other restaurants within a very short walk, so there are always options in various price ranges.

The few complaints aren’t really so much complaints as guests acknowledging that parts of the facility are looking a bit worn, which may or may not bother you. It’s also mentioned that there are many stairs to climb for most guests, especially those staying on the top few floors as there are 9 levels but the lift only goes up to 6. Overall, the guest reviews are very positive and very encouraging for a beach resort in Phuket in this price category.
