On the pretty northwest coast of Phuket, the Pullman Arcadia is a hillside hideaway at the corner of Naithon Beach, one of the island’s prettiest stretches of sand. The design is French flair meets feng shui, with shimmering infinity pools and sunken sofas, cascading waterfalls crisscrossing cuboid buildings, and curvaceous pavilions built around giant 100-year-old banyan trees. The sea views are spectacular and the sunsets even more so.
Bed and Bath
This is a large property, with nearly 300 rooms, but the clever jungle-clad layout means it never feels impersonal or overwhelming. Most of the rooms are housed in three-story buildings overlooking either the gardens or the Andaman Sea, and they’re decked out in a soothing blend of bleached wood tones, whites and grays. For the full tropical island experience, splurge on one of the ocean view rooms and wake up to the rhythmic sound of the sea.
A substantial breakfast spread is laid out in a sunny indoor/outdoor pavilion, and there’s a Bloody Mary bar for boozy brunches. Find a spot on the terrace, by the pool or at the garden deli for lunch. And book a table on the swoon-worthy terrace at the Vero Italian restaurant for some top alfresco dining. In need of some peaceful pampering? Slip away for a Payot facial or jasmine-scented massage at the Dhatri spa, or bag a spot on a secret terrace with just the sound of crickets, cicadas and frogs for company.
In the Area
Naithon Beach is a stone’s throw from the hotel. It has a cute village with a handful of natty bars and restaurants, massage studios and shops selling wooden elephants and giant rubber rings. For a change of beach scene, take a 10-minute taxi ride to Banana Beach. Its pearly white sands, emerald seas and towering palm trees are the stuff that Instagram Likes are made of. If you’re feeling adventurous, head north to the rain forests, limestone mountains and enormous lakes of Khao Sok National Park, where you can trek, hike, climb and kayak to your heart’s content.
How to Get There
This is the second time we rented a villa away this hotel and I honestly hope we come back.
Pong the restaurant manager is so friendly and helpful. Roberto the head chef at the same restaurant taking to us about how to properly make the amazing carbonara. That my sister had every night she was here.
The Villa hosts so willing and able to help with so many different requests. The communication between their housekeeping is top notch.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we will see you soon.
Pullman Phuket Arcadia hotel is already on the list of my favorite hotel in Thailand. The unbeatable location where you never worry about travel time between airport and hotel (just 15 minutes from airport by car). The breathtaking view toward Naitorn beach and Andaman ocean would impress you as soon as you enter the lobby. Staff are also the strength here. You could feel their willingness to assist your needs. A special shout-out to Khun LookMoo and Khun Sea(FO director) who made my stay incredibly fun and special. The ocean deluxe room and the pool villa are located at the very front to the ocean. You would love the ocean sound which is so relaxing especially when you are sleeping. The main pool was huge and the sunset view here was beautiful. Breakfast was also amazing. The variety of foods and drinks is on the top rank, I would say. Overall, I highly recommend Pullman Phuket Arcadia. If you are looking for a hotel in Phuket, put this hotel in your list. I would guarantee that you will love this hotel as I do. I will be back to stay there again for sure.

The restaurants are fabulous , sunset drinks are gorgeous overlooking the sea and the Thai hospitality clearly on show ! A credit to the GM Mr B Wilson for creating such a lasting and amazing experience for our family holiday from the time we arrived throughout . His attention to detail is evident in all areas of this resort ! A visit to the spa a must for even the most discerning ... we will be back & would thoroughly recommend ....
This hotel has the most friendly staff and the best pool to beach views! We spent 2 weeks here for our wedding anniversary and loved it. But this is in a quite part of Phuket so if you want the lively side this is not for you unless you are happy to get taxis. But apart from that I cannot fault this hotel. Loved it. Xx
