Here are some noteworthy recommendations for your stay at our iCheck inn properties in Phuket:

Hat Bang Tao

Stretching for 8 kilometers, Hat Bang Tao stands as one of Phuket’s longest and most idyllic beaches. Featuring midrange bungalows at the south end and luxury resorts, including the Laguna Phuket complex, in the middle, this pearlescent expanse invites relaxation. Beach clubs adorn its southern and northern tips, with the protected northern corner, Hat Layan, offering blonde sands framed by pines, an offshore islet, and a beach club.

Big Buddha

Perched atop the Nakkerd Hills, the 45-meter-high Big Buddha, crafted from Burmese alabaster, commands a grand presence on Phuket’s finest viewpoint. While slightly touristy, the site emanates an energetic aura with tinkling bells and fluttering flags. Visitors can pay their respects at the golden shrine and ascend to the glorious plateau, enjoying panoramic views of Kata’s bay, Karon’s golden sands, and the channel islands of Ao Chalong to the southeast.

Soi Romanee

Nestled in the heart of the Old Town, Soi Romanee is a vibrant street showcasing beautifully restored Sino-Portuguese architecture. Once a hub for brothels and dens, it now hosts boutique cafes and guesthouses, creating a charming atmosphere, particularly enchanting when illuminated by Chinese lanterns at night.

Laem Phromthep

Journey to the southernmost point of the island to witness the glittering Andaman Sea embracing Phuket. Crowned by a modern lighthouse and an evocative elephant shrine, the cape offers a serene setting. For privacy, arrive before sunset or follow a fisherfolk’s trail downhill to a rocky peninsula extending into the ocean.

Hat Nai Harn

Favored by locals and expats alike, Hat Nai Harn boasts a beautifully curved golden-white crescent with turquoise waters on the west side of Laem Phromthep. Backed by casuarinas and a seafront temple, it remains a cherished spot for swimming and sun-soaking, though caution is advised during low-season rip tides.

Patong Beach

Patong Beach, with its 3-kilometer stretch of golden sand, stands as one of Phuket’s most popular beaches. Offering a range of water activities, beachside vendors, and massage parlors, it is lined with coconut and palm trees providing shade. The northern part features a shallow sandy creek, while the southern part leads to a river mouth and a fishing village. iCheck inn Chill, Central, and Residence Patong are conveniently located 15 minutes from Patong Beach. The ideal time to visit is between November and April when the sea is calm, while caution is advised during May to October due to large waves and dangerous swells. Always heed red warning flags for safety.
