Located on Mai Khao Beach with superb views of the Andaman Sea, the JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa is full of Thai charm and personality, and its three expansive pools cater to kids and couples alike. Guestrooms have polished hardwood or tile floors, plush bedding and marble baths stocked with high-end toiletries, while suites have private Thai Salas and endless sea views. Of the property’s 11 dining and bar venues, Cucina has been touted as the spot for the country’s best Italian fare, serving palate-pleasing meals like handmade gnocchi pasta with braised lamb shank ragout, lemon skin and rosemary oil. Most restaurants and bars are open late, but 24-hour room service means midnight snacks are welcome, too. Don’t skip the top-rated Mandara Spa, where guests are pampered with treatments such as the “four hand” signature massage blending Japanese Shiatsu, Hawaiian Lomi-Lomi other techniques from Thailand, Sweden and Bali.
In the Area
Families will find plenty of onsite activities with circus and trapeze training, Batik painting, Thai dancing and movie screenings, while Thai Ginja cooking courses are a full-day diversion for all ages. Beyond the resort, Phuket ranks as a top snorkel and dive destination, so hit the water on a guided tour; your concierge can arrange a bespoke full- or half-day excursion. Among the must-sees, visit the Phi Phi Islands for a scenic photo-op, or check out the Similan Islands, one of Phuket’s best-known attractions. Phuket’s largest Buddhist temple, Wat Chalong, is also worth a visit, and nearby Patong Beach offers ample shopping and nightlife along a lively swath of shoreline.
How to Get There
We had an amazing 4 day stay at this hotel and our room was the Best room i’ve ever stayed in. A very relaxing atmosphere. The hotel alone is like a whole day adventure for the family. They have kids facilities, Gym facilities, 1.5hr free bike rent, They have the main pool which is really big and the north and south pool. And just a minute walk to the beach from the pools. It’s just disappointing that we couldn’t really enjoy the beach because of strong wave and jellyfish warning but that is not the hotels fault. Receptionist are very helpfull and friendly.
They even sent us a complimentary chicken soup and a congee for our 1.5yo daughter when the manager discovered my daughter has diarrhea.
That was so sweet of the manager.
We just have 1 complaint. There was this time when we approached 2 of their staffs(a gay and a lady)in front of Siam Deli who were just chit-chatting,
we politely said “excuse me” when we are about to speak, the gay staff holds his hand in our face and said “1 min pls” ,and then continue telling the lady something. i said to myself , that was a little rude. The lady may have noticed our reactions and told us, “yes sir how may i help you?” . When i was about to speak again, this gay staff took her attention and continued chatting with her. That is truly rude.
That’s the moment we just left. We were going to ask about the dinner buffet.
So we just head outside the hotel to eat dinner.
Other than that, it was a great experience.
We had a lovely stay at the JW Marriott in Phuket. The staff is extremely warm, welcoming and very professional. A special shout out to Jojo and Yaya who went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. We got an upgrade to a suite with a spectacular oceanfront setting. The furnishings, toiletries, and other amenities were excellent. The housekeeping staff kept the room in pristine condition. The food options are plentiful and very tasty. We tried Cucina for delicious Italian, the Andaman Grill for wonderful fresh fish, the Siam grill, vast breakfast buffets at the Marriott Cafe, the poolside bars, and interesting cocktails at the Sala Sawasdee lounge bar. There was a very talented duo that sang every evening. There are lots of activities to keep kids and adults engaged including tennis, crafts, and yoga. The resort also has an interesting array of events for Marriott elite members. We enjoyed the resort cocktails where we had great conversations about ancient Thai cooking with executive chef Dietmar, the spa director Linda, and met other guests at the hotel. All in all a delightful stay and we very much look forward to our next visit.
The chef from Italian restaurant, Andrea Genio is absolutely fantastic making our family dinner as always left with a good taste to remember😍with a quality food and good atmosphere Not mentioned the team keeping food always a high standard. They always make sure we got what we need. Thank you for making our holiday with your food memorable especially with the flying Pizza 🍕 ... good job 👏 see you again next year with porcini truffle!
Apart from the great beach and pool area as well as good food for kids and adults, it is the kids club that stands out the most and their exceptional staff ( Nui, Nicky, Meji, Benz, June, Nan, Boom), who are so attentive and engaged with the children. Thanks!
our family was here for 3 nights. Relatively old place. The room had fungus smell probably due to humid weather. A lot of mosquito bites. Maybe it is unavoidable, but that is clearly one distraction we had. Excellent breakfast, good Italian restaurant. Staffs were very friendly and helpful.
