Honeymoon hotel in Phuket

Can someone recommend a luxury hotel for us to stay during our honeymoon? We do not want to stay in Pudong as it sounds too lively. However, we would like to be close enough so that we can go there for a day trip or visit at night.

We want to stay somewhere where we can walk right on the beach within a minute. We would like the hotel to have all the 5-star amenities and service and the hotel room and bathroom to be spacious. Ideally, we would be within 15 minutes away from nice shopping and restaurants. The beach should not be too crowded, but offer enough water activities.

Are there any locations and hotels that fit this description?

Thank you in advance for your help and recommendations!

Sounds like you're looking for the Sala Phuket.

It's up in the northern part of the island, very new, very nice, huge bathrooms, huge pools (many) right on the beach (although it's not a good swimming beach as it gets deep rather quickly i believe)

Check it out. Expensive but first class all the way.

I think they are rated on the "Trip Advisor" Hotel list.

Have a look at

http://www.phuket.com/sheraton/index.htm

Friends stayed, said it was fantastic, but it is more than 15 minutes from Patong.

Really, if you stayed at the north end of Patong beach, you would get the best of both worlds.

see

or

check latestays.com for pricing

or look at Kata or Karon.

We're heading to phuket for our honeymoon oct/nov and decided on 3 nights at mom tri's villa royale and then 5 nights at the JW marriot. we figured 3 nights on kata beach would give us enough 'action' and then we would spend the next 5 nights doing a whole lot of nothing at the JW.

There are plenty of luxury places ideal for a honeymoon, Mom Tri's is a nice idea, also Sala Phuket. Adamas is another idea, perhaps Trisara.

You can try from a top 20 selection:

www.phuket-luxury-hotels.com/top-20.html

There are also some very romantic pool suites at many of the resorts

www.phuket-luxury-hotels.com/pool-villas.html gives some ideas.

Kata beach does sound though the most ideal for you as enough without being too much.

yonder,

I understand that the JW Marriott is next to the SALA Phuket. Can I ask if you considered the SALA Phuket and if so, why you decided to go with JW Marriott instead?

Thanks!

Hey - we are honeymooning in Phuket in October and are staying at the Chedi. Its not your typical luxery hotel, but I can't imagine a more romantic setting. It is a community of huts connected by walkways, has a beautiful private beach and a great pool. it can be pricey depending on when you go, teh fall is quite afordable.

Good luck and congratulations!

My wife to be has stayed in different JW Marriots around the world, so this was a no brainer for her and I know better than to argue!
