Phuket is one of the most popular destinations in Thailand, thanks to the white sand beaches edged with palm trees and turquoise waters. A place where you can experience luxury without spending a fortune. An affordable luxury that allows you to do a "grandiose" holiday without the need to "taking a loan". Also as far as the stay is concerned, the hotels are a real dream, it is actually quite difficult to choose between such beauty as they are all offering a very good value for the price when compared to Hotels in other parts of the globe.

Below are some suggestions keeping in mind that you are traveling to Phuket with children.

Centara Grand Beach Resort KARON

Centara Hotels and Resorts are notoriously among the best hotels to choose when traveling with family and kids as they offer great outdoor pools and activities that keep the children busy and make them enjoy the stay at best. This resort is located at the end of the quiet northern area of ​​Karon Beach. A place that immediately evokes relaxation. The structure is luxurious and is particularly striking for its position, supported by beautiful hills. It also has a bar with a spectacular view and wonderful cocktails.

There's a water park, there's a spa, a fitness club, several pools (including a separate pool for the kids) and the excellent Cove Restaurant, which serves Asian and international cuisine. There is also a miniclub for the little ones.

Ratana Hill

Ratana Hill Hotel Phuket

Located in Patong Beach, the most touristic beach on the island and also the busiest. It is ideal for those looking for fun, comfort and mixing in the confusion of the streets of Patong at night for a local Market bargain but make no mistake it is not recommended if you are looking for a quiet hangout.

If you are in for beach sports however, then here you can do all the many sport related to sea including Surfing, scuba diving, windsurfing, snorkeling, seakayak, kite surfing and so on. The social life of the area is concentrated on the Bangla, the main street of shops and nightclubs, please be reminded that this is conveniently located but not suggested if you are traveling with small children (night time the noises could be going until late).

So, if you are traveling with let's say, over 8 year old kids and wants to enjoy both the Thai city life, the beach sports and a great hotel at a good price this could be your place.
