Things to do
We’re here to show you some of the best places to visit in Phuket, where the locals go to surf, eat and party until dawn. Zoom across warm waters or explore the island on two wheels. Phuket can be as chilled or wild as you like.
At the Resort
The resort hub keeps you energised, with a pool for laps, Jacuzzi to chill, and gym to pump iron. The facilities at Anantara Mai Khao next door are also yours to enjoy, with Muay Thai, tennis, yoga, Thai cooking classes and a dreamy spa.
There’s the usual jet skiing and banana boating. Then there’s epic kitesurfing and diving. The best winds are on our side of the island, and dive sites like the Similans are to the west, easily reached by dayboat and ready to blow your mind.
Charter a speedboat or join one of the many cruises across beautiful Phang Nga Bay. With its IG-able limestone karsts and coves just waiting to be explored, pack a picnic and snorkel kit and get ready for adventure.
Did you know Phuket has over a dozen world-class golf courses? Tee up at the nearby Blue Canyon Country Club, with two championship courses spread over 700 acres. We’ll take care of all the arrangements.
Exploring Phuket Town
Phuket is a melting pot of cultures, architectures and cuisines. Stop at cool cafés, hole-in-the-wall roti stores and classic Sino-Thai restaurants. Come sunset, hit the retro shophouse bars, and the Sunday walking street with food trucks, quirky crafts and street performances.
Learn more about the life of the turtle at our turtle sanctuary just down the beach. The Mai Khao Marine Turtle Foundation has been helping protect and rejuvenate the turtle population for more than 20 years. Visit at the right time of year and you may even see the cute little hatchlings make their first journey to the sea.
Just for Kids
Beware never seeing your young ones this holiday, with an action-packed kids’ club, dedicated teen zone, rock climbing wall, pizza-making classes and even a visit to the turtle sanctuary down the beach just waiting to keep them entertained.
