Despite being well-developed, Phuket offers a surprising number of hidden retreats
Is Phuket too busy and crowded with tourists to have many secretive, little-seen beach retreats? Far from it. This is a big island, 50 kilometres from top to bottom, with scores of different beaches and different atmospheres. While Phuket’s most famous beaches, Patong, Karon and Kata certainly do get crowded in peak season from mid December to March, there are many other stretches of sand on the island that remain tranquil, with few visitors at all.
Here we give a Top 10 list of the more interesting true beachfront getaways, including modest but comfortable, 3-star accommodations like the hard-to-find Baan Krating to super luxurious villas like those in the secretive Trisara. These peaceful retreats are found on all corners of Phuket, from the far southeast to the far northwest. One on a close-by island is also included. The writer has not slept in all of them, but has been familiar with them all over many years, and has shot photos of each on multiple occasions over the years.
Note that more hidden secrets on Phuket can be found on a separate page called Phuket’s Top 10 Most Romantic Beachfront Resorts . Some on this ‘most romantic’ page are also remote hideaways, but not all, because some romantic couples also like to be closer to the busier areas with more activities.
