Bottom Line

The 180-room Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, Nai Yang Beach is a luxury family-friendly property with a peaceful location a 10-minute drive from Phuket International Airport. Although it sits on a wide stretch of beach, long low tides mean the ocean is often far back from the resort. Nevertheless, a well-sized outdoor pool and separate kiddy pool provide spots for a dip, and many rooms have direct access to the pool. Rooms are generic but handsome, all with furnished outdoor spaces, flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, sleek showers, and separate tubs. Upgraded rooms have beach views, sofas, and/or plunge pools. Three on-site restaurants include an all-day Thai eatery, poolside seafood spot and bar, and a casual international restaurant; food is tasty across the board. Ample features include a full-service spa with treatments for couples and kids, a kids' club, daily schedule of activities (most for a fee), and a modern fitness center. Travelers wanting even more features should consider the JW Marriott Phuket Resort and Spa.

Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, Nai Yang Beach

Scene

Relaxed family-friendly resort with contemporary design near Phuket International Airport

The 2016-opened Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, Nai Yang Beach provides a relaxing oceanfront getaway with some options for recreation -- both for kids and adults. Its setting near the airport is convenient but not too close to cause noise disturbances, and guests can walk to restaurants and bars along the beach during low tide. The downside of this is that the ocean is at low tide for a good part of the day, pushing the water line far back from the resort. Because of this, guests split their time lounging on a beachfront chair or taking a dip in the well-sized outdoor pool, which snakes around the resort and can be accessed directly from some rooms. Like most Marriott properties in Phuket, the design here is contemporary and elegant, but subdued in terms of local flair. Lily ponds, open-air Thai-style structures, and a gong at the entrance are atmospheric. 

A kids' club and daily schedule of activities such as yoga, lead painting, and Thai dessert making provide some entertainment, but overall, the hotel is quiet and best suited to those looking to relax. For a bit more activity, consider the JW Marriott Phuket Resort and Spa or Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort.

Location

Along Nai Yang Beach, a 10-minute drive from Phuket International Airport

The Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa sits on a quiet stretch of Nai Yang Beach, adjacent to a large forested area. The secluded location means beach vendors are largely absent, though guests can walk to restaurants and bars along the sand during low tide. A huge perk is that Phuket International Airport is a quick 10-minute drive away, yet airplane noise is not really an issue. On the downside, there are limited dining and shopping options in the immediate surrounds, and the bustling area of Patong is a 45-minute drive away.

Rooms

Handsome but bland rooms with terraces, tubs and showers, and flat-screen TVs

Several room categories are available here, but all units are largely decorated in the same sophisticated but uninspired design. Expect wood furniture, furniture, and wall panels, neutral fabrics, and little more than a tropical wall hanging and vibrant throw pillow for decoration. All rooms have furnished balconies or terraces, with upgrades offering direct access to the pool, beach views, or private plunge pools (villas only). Bathrooms are a highlight, with sleek showers and separate mosaic-tiled bathtubs, plus hairdryers and a full range of toiletries. Large closets house robes, slippers, beach bags, ironing equipment, and electronic safes. Also standard are seating areas, dining tables, flat-screen TVs, minibars, coffee- and tea-making facilities, desks, and free Wi-Fi. 

Suites have living spaces with sofas, while villas have impressive outdoor terraces with plunge pools.

Features

Well-sized outdoor pool, sunbed-lined beach, kids' club, and spa with variety of treatments

Unlike many Phuket resorts, this Marriott offers umbrella-shaded lounge chairs directly next to the ocean. Unfortunately, the long low tides mean that the ocean is often far from the resort. Because of this, most guests wanting to take a dip head to the main pool, which faves the ocean. There's a separate kiddy pool and the water snakes around the resort, in front of room buildings. The surrounding deck is lined with loungers, but they're limited in number and guests may struggle to find one in their preferred sun or shade. Colorful bean bags on a grassy lawn between the beach and pool provide more lounge space. Water sports are available at the beach during high tide.

The full-service Quan Spa is upscale, offering an extensive menu of treatments such as couples' massages, mani/pedis, body scrubs, and kid-specific therapies. A 24-hour fitness center has modern cardio and strength-training equipment. The kids' club provides games and toys, plus a packed schedule of activities such as necklace making and bag painting (many require a fee). Yoga, Thai boxing lessons, and bike rentals are also available for a fee.

Wi-Fi and parking are both free.
