Amari Phuket

Jan 3, 2014

The distant coasts and relatively serene corners of Phuket continue to draw sun-worshippers seeking solace from busy urban life. For those looking for a slightly more uptempo vacation though, Amari Phuket is in a prime location to dive into the island’s thriving and famously flashy nightlife. Situated a mere five minutes from Patong Beach by foot, the hotel is ideal for visitors looking to check out the nearby shopping and dining options, not to mention the area’s distinctive entertainment options. Thankfully, the hotel itself is fairly peaceful, with a lazy, beachy vibe suitable for families. The on-site restaurants serve up popular Italian, international and Thai dishes.
