Accommodation in Phuket

Phuket offers a wide variety of accommodations, rates start at around 50 Baht for a bed in a dormitory, guesthouses from 250 Baht per night, up to 20,000 Baht and more per night for a luxury suite in a big 5 star hotel or a small boutique hotel.

The top end among the luxury resorts is Amanpuri and The Chedi on Panasea beach. The elegant thatched suite huts and exclusive setting will impress even the worldliest connoisseur. If you can afford it. Rates starts from 750 US$ up to 18000 US$/night for a 6 bedroom pool villa with ocean view.

Rates differ between the seasons and you will most probably get big discounts during the monsoon season (April-November).

It's impossible for us (or anyone else) to do a listing of all that's available, so we would like to provide selected friendly accommodation along with some useful links where you can look for (and book) suitable accommodation.

WiFi and Internet access

WiFi and Internet Connection is available in many hotels. Some hotels like Connect give this service for free while other charge 200 up to 800 THB per day

Gay accommodation

Be aware that not all hotels are gay friendly and they will charge extra if you want to have an overnight visitor.

If you want a genuinely gay holiday there is only one place to stay: Patong Beach. There are many Gay-owned Hotels and Guesthouses in the Paradise Complex area, which is also where you find the gay nightlife. Room rates here range from 200 to 18000 Baht/night.

If you stay in the Paradise Complex area you have walking distance to over 20 gay venues. Staying outside this area means you have to arrange with transport to get to the gay area.

  • Seven Suns – Successor to the original Chiang Mai Connections and Lemongrass Boutique Guesthouse.

    Located within the old city walls of historic Chiang Mai. Walk to shopping malls, theatres, temples and the renowned Chiang Mai Night Bazaar, a definite shopper’s delight.
    The premises have undergone extensive renovations, the finishing touches to these should be completed shortly.
    The accommodation now boasts 12 rooms, all with air conditioning, new beds (either large or twin), fridge and television. Shortly IDD telephones will be installed in each room. All have been freshly painted, and have new wardrobes and other furniture. The restaurant has been completely reworked, and now provides extensive Thai and international cuisine at very affordable prices. Breakfast is available all day. The bar is well stocked. There is an indoor restaurant, and outdoor terrace cafe.
    Satellite television is available. Conference room facilities are being completed as we speak. Travel arrangements can be made on behalf of our guests, and personalised tours can be organised using our trained and registered tour guide staff for one or more days at an attractive rate.
    The staff are fluent in English, and are very keen to ensure that each and every guest thoroughly enjoys their stay in the north of Thailand.
    Our rates are currently starting at 600 baht per room per night. Those booking early have views to the picturesque Doi Sutep, the mountain under which we nestle, and King Menrai’s centuries old Wat (temple). And we are within fifteen minutes of airport, long-haul bus stations and railway station for day-trains or overnight sleepers to all points south.
