DoubleTree Resort Phuket By Hilton in Surin Beach is a child-friendly place to the point of being almost child-specific. Its range of features especially appeal to family holidays, which is something none of the other big-name hotels around it on Surin Beach can claim.
That does not make it a destination exclusively for children though. The 250 rooms each have the comfort and sophistication you would expect from a hotel operated by the Hilton and the tropical surroundings with nearby shopping, entertainment, water sports and a buzzing nightlife make the resort as fun for adults as it is for children. If that all sounds like too much work, then the first-class service, on-site spa and the beautiful Surin Beach nearby will make sure that you have a relaxing stay.
Amongst our 10 reasons why you need to stay at the DoubleTree Resort Phuket, there are major innovations as well as the little personal touches which can help to make your holiday really special.
Kids up to 12 years old go free for everything
Three swimming pools, two water slides, a two-story kid's club equipped with movie room, video games, ball-pit castle and activities area... the resort is Family-Friendly with a capital F. Daily activities are offered to children and adults alike so everyday can be made of fun and entertainment!
Eight-screen sports bar with denim napkins
Wipe away the crumbs of an American bar meal with a jeans-style napkin at Champions Bar & Grill. Found just past the lobby, it has comfortable seating, air conditioning, great drinks offers and large television screens showing the latest sporting action.
Two fun water slides
Both splashing down into one of the two main swimming pools, the long slides are reached by outdoor steps and, beginning up high, spiral down through twists and turns to their watery conclusion. This fun-themed pool also has a space for water polo, complete with nets.
Complimentary warm cookie and juice when checking-in
You’ve travelled a long way - now it’s time to relax. That starts right from the moment you reach the check-in desk, when you get a taste of things to come. Feel all warm and cosy with a chocolate chip cookie, and then get a taste of the tropics with a glass of fresh juice.
The most convenient of convenience stores is in the lobby
After seeing their guests walking down to the nearest convenience store for a budget snack, DoubleTree Resort Phuket decided to save you the walk. Get a selection of baked pastries, homemade sandwiches, salads and hot and cold drinks – as well as more of the scrumptious cookies you had when you arrived – at bargain rates from The Food Store in the lobby, which is open from 07:00 to 21:00.
Great value rooms with Hilton quality
With garden views from the private balcony of every room – except on the ground floor, where you have direct pool access instead – and all of the comfort you would naturally expect from the world-famous brand, the low prices on offer will blow your mind. You just won’t believe the value for money!
Scheduled activities for kids and adults
Many hotels have a schedule of activities especially for the kids and DoubleTree Resort Phuket is no exception, with a full list shown in the two-storey kid’s corner building which contains a creative room, ball pit, computer games and more. However, not so many places also have a list of activities for teens and adults, which is pinned up in the also two-storey 24-hour fitness centre.
Crabtree & Evelyn bath products
A hot shower or bath is a fantastic way to unwind, but adding top-class toiletries can make the experience complete. You’ll be more tempted than ever to slip the CITRON Honey & Coriander products from Crabtree & Evelyn into your suitcase as you leave.
Authentic wood-fired pizza at Asia Alive
A little incongruous, having a pizza oven in an Asian cuisine restaurant, but it is a sign of the ongoing adaptations the resort is going through as they continually strive to keep their service second to none. Serving fantastic fresh pizzas, the restaurant is also home to the buffet breakfasts and an innovative menu of local and international dishes.
Special shallow and shaded pool for toddlers
There is a third swimming pool specifically set aside for use by parents with small children. Only 55cm at its greatest depth, with a gently sloping sandwash ramp, it is shaded from the sun and comes with a supply of floating toys providing a fun and safe environment for those most vulnerable.
