5 Activities to Spend Your Time and Money on Your Next Luxury Escape to Phuket

A slice of paradise worth discovering, the island of Phuket in Thailand offers holidays full of adventure and beachside bliss. Here are some things well worth spending on or just trying out.


Spending Time at Patong Beach

It goes without saying that beaches are plentiful in Phuket and you have lots of chances to enjoy a fun filled day in the sun, sand and surf. The longest beach on the island, Patong Beach is a great place to just soak up the laidback coastal vibe while engaging in some people watching too. Yes, the beach can get crowded at times, but it still offers a seaside charm worth experiencing while on holiday. Added to this, is the fact that there is water sports, shopping, dining and nightlife as well, so you can look forward to an unforgettable day and night out in the area.


Exploring Rawai Village

For a chance to get a different perspective of Phuket plan to visit and explore Rawai Village. This idyllic village is where you will find the Moken tribe and can learn more about their traditional way of life. Fishing is a livelihood here that has been passed down from one generation to the next, while some fisher folk now even act as guides and will offer you trips out to sea. The area itself is quite picturesque set amidst a backdrop of a palm fringed beach and a scenic fishing harbour. It is also a great place to set out on expeditions to nearby offshore islands.


Enjoy Spa Indulgence

While staying in luxurious pool villas Phuket has to offer presents its own unique indulgence, there is nothing like enjoying some pampering at a spa. Resorts such as Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas have their own spas which offer a range of treatments and therapies that will help you find that inner bliss. Relaxing massages, revitalising scrubs and rejuvenating facials are just some of the spa treatments one can look forward to trying. Some spas even have separate treatment rooms for couples, offering more privacy and a chance to embark on a wellness journey with that special someone.



Just as captivating as what is on offer on land is what one will find in the ocean waters surrounding Phuket. There is much coral and marine life to be discovered here and those going on diving excursions can witness the beauty that lies beneath the waves. If you do not have the needed diving certification you can easily find dive centres in Phuket that provide the needed courses and training to get PADI certification. Sites such as the Similan Islands National Park offer unforgettable diving adventures where you can witness a breathtaking underwater world and the denizens of the deep that call this place home, swimming wild and free.


Elephant Trekking

A wonderful way to explore Phuket, elephant trekking gives you the chance to get up close with gentle giants and embark on a unique excursion. A special experience awaits as you ride atop these elephants who take you through exotic jungles, past enchanting waterfalls and to some stunning sites of rich natural beauty.
