5 star resorts with pool access rooms

We are seeking pool access rooms in a 5 star resort in Phuket for October this year. Preferably a beach resort. Any help would be appreciated.

Have you found any?

What area do you want to be in or is pool access on the beach paramount?

Hi Avidtraveller

Phuket is the Island, and within it are areas.

The most popular are

Patong, also the busiest and most viberant, many say its sleazy, but really there is only one rd like like. I am in my 50s female and dont frequent Bangla but love Patong, as you have so many choices all within easy walking distance

Kata, and Karon are south of Patong, and much quiter, whilst still have shopping and plenty of choices for eating and drinking, not as much as Patong, and more spread out.

Kamala is north of Patong, again much quiter than Patong, and probably Kata and Karon as well.

There are many hotels to choose from in all locations, most will have pool access rooms. Most are not really 5 star, but you will find them very good none the less.

If you want beautiful and relaxed and not in the thick of it, I suggest looking At Mom Tri Villa Royal at Kata Noi (next to Kata) absolutely stunning, but not sure thet have pool access

Merlin Beach Resort about 10 min Tuk Tuk to Patong

The Mecure Grand has just opened in Patong, this may suit you.

Any way there is a start, think about which area you want, and come back to us

Hi avidtraveller,

I can recommend our Pool Access Villas at Thavorn Beach Village & Spa.

Our resort has a private beach and is located at a quite secluded bay in between Patong Beach and Kamala Beach.

Please see our TripAdvisor page at the link below.


We hope to welcome you to our resort in October.

Kind Regards,

Roger Gibson
