Views from Phuket

The view from Kata Rocks

The view from Kata Rocks

Lately we've been searching high and low for wedding venues. Luckily, Phuket has dozens of incredible hotels with views that make the rest of the world melt away. Since we've seen pretty much every place on the island (not really, but it sure feels like it), we thought we would share of the hotels with the best views in Phuket. Here are a few of our favorites:

Kata Rocks

We stopped at Kata Rocks (pictured above) for Sunday lunch. The staff was great, the food was delicious and the poolside view is spectacular on a sunny day. Be sure to try the hot chocolate cake and the delicious Gaeng phoo bai cha plu, a southern-style (Southern Thailand, that is) crab curry dish very different from what you'll find in Bangkok. Spending a few hours here definitely staved off the Sunday Blues.

Nook Dee / Foto Hotel

Located up the hill from Kata Rocks in Kata, Nook-Dee and Foto Hotel have a fantastic view. Be sure to check out Nook-Dee's out-of-the-way rooftop area for a more private and panoramic view of the nearby beaches.

The Naka

The Naka Phuket place is stunning. The best view of the hotel is from the lobby which is perched above this gorgeous scene. It feels like something out of a movie (and actually, we hear Blake Lively filmed here). On a little side note, we were less than impressed with the wedding staff, who quickly talked us out of any reason to choose this as our wedding venue.

Anantara Layan

Nestled within a protected national park, Anantara Layan has some great views and beach front. Take a glimpse from the tiny wedding chapel at the top in particular.

Private Villas

Another great way to enjoy Phuket is to rent a private villa, some with views like this one! If you're traveling with a group of friends there's no better way to enjoy Phuket than with your own cook, butler and these kinds of views.
