Family Phuket Resort
Phuket Accommodation | Phuket family resort
Choosing the right family Phuket Resort makes the difference between those perfect times and the wrong kind of memories. There are many resorts on Phuket but not all are geared up for family time. See these family friendly resorts below to get the best of your time in Phuket.
Family Phuket Resorts need a few components to make it easy for the children to hang out with mum and day. The kids need good swimming pools to play in, an interesting layout of the pool area to explore and maybe some children friendly activities on the resort site. On top of that they need the sea close by so they can enjoy the tropical beach time. Finally they need to be kept entertained and have easy access to some tours to break up the stay a little.
In this article I have chosen 4 family Phuket Resort. The 3 star Merlin Beach Resort and The Front Village, the 5 star Laguna Beach Resort and the Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort, and the 4 star Phuket Graceland Resort And Spa. All of these resorts have differing make ups of room arrangements, entertainment and some are more suited to younger or older children.
Family Phuket Resort for young families
It is very different choosing a Phuket Resort for family with young kids than older ones. The needs are more about safety, control and entertainment. The Merlin Beach Resort and Laguna Beach Resort have great kid’s crèches so the adults can have some down time to relax. After the kids have settled into a routine with the carers the parents can feel free to take that massage or just chill out by the pool. In terms of seclusion, the Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort sits on it's own private beach and enjoys very good security.
Family Phuket Resort 8-12 years
The family Phuket Resort for this middle age, pre-pubescent is a time of action. The kids love the physical world and the mini water park and slides at the Laguna Beach Resort is a great pull. The beach at Bang Tao is a wonderful stretch of golden sand to enjoy the Indian Ocean (in high season). At a budget The Front Village gets you on Karon beach, another wide beach with daily beach volleyball games. There are plenty of activities and tours for this age group.
Family Phuket Resort for teenagers
When you have teenagers you need something more stimulating and so a good family Phuket Resort would be the Phuket Graceland Resort And Spa just on the northern side of Patong Beach. Here there are many amusements lifestyle to watch and the resort has a wonderful pool just 50 m from the famous Patong Beach and its stunning sunsets. My son and nephew got their PADI open water done at the Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort when they were 14 years old. The large 40 meter pools were used to do the confined water and that gave them the certification to dive on Phi Phi Island.
