Amari Phuket: Review

Combine sophisticated luxury with the convenience of easy access to Phuket’s party town, Patong Beach. Take the free shuttle into town to enjoy the famous beach and retail therapy then retreat to the resort when the sun goes down.

Stroll along the area’s only private jetty with a glass of bubbly and soak up magical sunsets. Celebrate the love in your life with a romantic beachfront dinner. Return to your room via an on-demand buggy service.

Upgrade for exclusive access to the Clubhouse which features a gym, swimming pool, sundeck and restaurant. Enjoy complimentary evening cocktails and canapes with unparalleled views of Patong Bay.
