Seeking advice on where to stay in Phuket

Hi, I am planning to spend 4 nights in Phuket along with my partner and 5 yr old kid. I have been reading the travel forums and am a bit confused on where to stay in Phuket. Patong, kata, Kamala,......???? We would not necessarily want to stay near an area having a hectic nightlife...preference will be to stay somewhere in quiet but with a great natural surrounding. Grateful for any suggestions. Thanks, cheers, vicks

WE have opted to split out trip Grant Centara Karon. THis portion is all about pleasing and entertaining our child (4 years old) lazy river pool, water slides, on the beach lots for a kid to do. Towards to the end of our trip we are wanting something different more for us adults- have yet to decide.

Front runner and recommended by others is Koh Racha a small island just off Phuket -35 min boat ride. Looks like it would fit your natural setting request

Hope this helps. Previous to our child we stayed at the Le Meridien Phuket resort. It is just out of town with its own private beach and also has goofd facilities for adults and kids but again not close to natural setting.

The Katathani, which is directly on the beach would be a good option but there's only a few restaurants within walking distance outside the hotel so you would need to get a taxi or tuk tuk to Kata or Patong in the evening for a better choice.

Hi I looked at Tropica hotel (Patong) and the setting are very nice they are located on the beach road so you just need to cross the road to go to the beach, they rates aren't bad 3,500 -3,900 per room, the setting is beautiful once inside it doesn't look like bangla road is just behind it, it's a bit noisy in the night time when outside if the room, but inside with doors and windows closed I couldn't hear a thing.

I'm staying at Nanai road, I rented a house with flipkey but will definitely book Tropica next year:)

I would recommend Centara Grand Beach Resort in Karon. The resort is family oriented, direct access to Karon beach and close proximity to Karon Town.
