Overview

Family-friendly Mai Khao Beach resort with three pools, 11 restaurants and bars and an award-winning spa

The Lowdown

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.
