  • 10 Reasons to Stay at Amari Phuket

    We loved it and here's why

    Amari Phuket is a long-established property (opened in 1984) located at the southern end of the prime destination in Phuket - Patong Beach. The whole resort went through a complete refurbishment in 2013 and a new stylish wing – Ocean Wing – opened in June 2015, making the total number of rooms available 380, many of them with partial or complete sea views.

    Stylish yet unpretentious, this four-and-a-half-star resort has always been among the favourite accommodation choices of vacationers looking for a Phuket hotel offering a relaxing atmosphere, modern furnishings and amenities, good facilities, and easy access to all that Patong Beach has to offer regarding nightlife entertainment. Amari Phuket Resort is just the right place to meet these demands.

    Quiet location right next to Patong’s buzz
    Quiet location right next to Patong’s buzz

    Amati Phuket Resort could not be better situated: set on the headland marking the southern end of Patong Beach, it gives the impression of being at the same time very close of the hustle and bustle of the renowned resort town and, due to its tranquil ambiance, very far from it. It is therefore the right choice for those who’d like to get the best of two different worlds. The resort also has its own private beach.

    High-end suites in the Ocean Wing

    Opened in 2015, Amari Phuket’s Ocean Wing offers exclusive accommodation style to Patong vacationers. Featuring 183 ocean-view suites, all of them designed in a classy contemporary style and fitted with high-end amenities, the Ocean Wing is a class-act almost independent from the Amari’s main wing. It features its own restaurant, bar and swimming pool - The Club House - that can only be accessed by the guests residing in some specific suite-types.


    La Gritta Italian Restaurant is the flagship Amari Phuket restaurant. Featuring three sections – a cosy air-conditioned dining room, a rooftop lounge bar, and an outdoor terrace overlooking Patong Bay - La Gritta is the perfect place for a romantic dinner under the stars. Chef Patrizia Battolu runs the restaurant’s kitchen with talent, and brings her own twist to the classics of Italian cuisine. Read More...

    Exclusive Breeze Spa

    Situated in a lush environment toward the southern end of the resort, Breeze Spa is a haven of peacefulness. Featuring only four teakwood massage salas offering stunning views over Patong Bay, Breeze Spa’s therapists perform delightful treatments and massages, including aromatherapy, Thai and oil massages, body polishes, and more. A well thought-out questionnaire allows guests to specify their expectations regarding the massage/treatment they are going to enjoy, allowing the therapist to tailor their treatment accordingly.

    Three swimming pools

    The main wing of Amari Phuket Resort has two swimming pools: the main pool (aka Rim Talay pool) is the largest and features an adjacent children’s basin. The second pool is right behind La Gritta. The third pool is set on the hillside as part of the Ocean Wing. The three pools enjoys the presence of a nearby bar at which guests can get all-day drinks and snacks.

    Private snorkelling spot at the jetty
    The Jetty

    Amari Phuket hosts its own private snorkelling spot off the end of a jetty situated at the southern end of the resort. Before being renamed to Amari Phuket, the resort was known as Amari Coral Beach, and it is easy to understand why when you see the quality of this snorkelling spot that hosts impressive colourful marine life. The jetty also hosts a bar at which guests can indulge themselves with a hearty choice of sandwiches, salads, and cocktails.

    World-class service

    With daily shuttle-buses to Jungceylon (the largest shopping mall in Patong Beach) and to Kata Beach, Amari Phuket is definitely not a ‘gilded prison’. Electric carts are available all day long at reception for people staying on the hillside at the Ocean Wing, and from the gardeners to waitresses to the different section managers, the whole staff is always on call to assist you if need be.

    Leisure activities for the whole family

    The resort features a wide range of leisure facilities and equipment for all ages. From the kid’s club and its charming team to the fitness room to the tour desk to the independent scuba diving centre, there is no way that any member of a family can get bored at Amari Phuket. A few hundred metres from the resort, the beach of Patong itself also has a good choice of thrilling water sports and activities.

    First-rate amenities in every room

    Whether they are in the Superior and Deluxe Wing or in the Ocean Wing, the 380 rooms and suites of the Amari Phuket come in a warm and chic contemporary-style décor. All of them are provided with extra-comfortable plush beds (one king size or two twin beds), flat-screen television showing 40 channels, DVD player, tea and coffee facilities, free Wi-Fi, and more.


    Amari Phuket is the perfect venue to tie the knot in style. The resort has four wedding packages available, and a great choice of spaces in which the ceremony, reception and dinner can be organised. Thai-style weddings include the blessing of the monks while western-style weddings have a secular celebrant, different options regarding the ceremony, floral decoration and settings can be arranged.
