Four Tips for Booking Family-Friendly Phuket Accommodations
It is fair to say that there are few places in Thailand and, indeed, all of Southeast Asia which are more desirable as a vacation destination than Phuket. For the longest time, Phuket was nevertheless one of the best kept secrets in the area so far as American tourists were concerned. So great is the impact of Bangkok upon the world stage that for decades, for Americans, it was the only game in town as far as Thailand was concerned.
With the Internet and travel articles exposing more and more people to this lovely Thai island paradise, however, that is beginning to change fast.
With Phuket’s profile among American tourists and, indeed, those around the world, it should come as no surprise that it is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination for families.
To that end, here are a few things you’ll want to consider when searching for a top-quality family accommodation in Phuket.
One of the most important things to look for when searching for family accommodations for your stay in Phuket is a hotel which exudes a sense of family-friendliness. You don’t want to find yourself looking at places which are dull for the kids or too childish for the adults, and you certainly don’t want to stay in a place which is engaged in “adult entertainment.” The best places for family accommodations in Phuket are bright, colorful, and feature a family vibe from one end of the premises to the other.
Big Enough for the Whole Family
What’s more, these places offer family-sized rooms. If that sounds like a little thing, chances are you’ve never known the struggle of squeezing into the same room or even the same bed with family members, sharing supplies of which you’re already running short, because the hotel room simply isn’t equipped for two, let alone a whole family. On the contrary, the best family hotels in Phuket feature spacious rooms and special family suites. In addition, these rooms feature bright, welcoming, family-friendly décor.
Family Pool Areas
One of the great entertainment options for any hotel is, of course, the pool area. This is especially true when it comes to tropical islands such as Phuket, which feature so many fantastic spas and resorts. That being said, for as fun as a spa resort may be, you’re going to want to look for a hotel that features a nice family-friendly pool area in which kids and adults alike can swim together. Even with the overall family-friendly vibe, however, there’s nothing wrong with seeking out a poolside cocktail bar or cabana.
Special Family Discounts
Traveling can be expensive, especially when you’re traveling as a family to places as exotic as Phuket. That’s why you’ll want to be on the lookout for hotels which offer special family discounts. These packages can make a big difference in making your stay that much more affordable.
With these tips and tricks in mind, you’ll be able to book a lovely trip for the whole family to Phuket.
