Some places I go to I have a really hard time sleeping because I can’t wait to wake up in the morning, just like my kids on Christmas Eve! Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort is definitely one of these places.
Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort is the perfect choice if you are looking for a large resort with a private long stretch of white sandy beach on the Andaman Sea plus plenty of amenities and day-trip excursions available to choose from. This is definitely a family hotel with excellent entertainment and dining options. The resort has 10 restaurants and bars including Japanese Teppanyaki, Thai specialties, an Italian trattoria, seafood, pizza and a poolside restaurant with nightly themed dinners.
I must say the pools are quite impressive as it occupies a plentiful portion of the hotel. The grounds of Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort are relatively large and lush compared to other hotels I have stayed at in Phuket. It takes about 20-minutes to take a stroll from one end to the other, you will notice the main restaurant area by the pool, beach restaurants and bars, cabanas, and beautiful palm trees hanging over the water for the perfect photo op along with thoughtful treats and perks, such as water sports, hidden bar with drinks, coconut stands, and lounge chairs throughout the beach.
We chose to stay in this resort over Christmas to learn more about this side of the island since the other half was spent at the Rosewood Phuket located in Tri Trang Beach. Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort is a true oceanfront hotel and extremely secluded. Hotel guests get to enjoy a range of facilities and recreational activities such as fitness club, an archery range, a ball court, a spa with relaxing treatments, mini-golf, and a driving range, tennis and squash courts, Thai cooking classes and art classes. Scroll down to see a few tips I’ve reserved to get the best of your stay in Phuket.
