This family-friendly resort on Bo Phut Beach is perfect for a laid-back break.

One of our favourite resorts, we think you’ll love the welcoming, relaxing vibe here at the Bandara Resort & Spa. Bo Phut Beach has a gentler pace than many of the other beaches on the island, which makes it an ideal location if you’re planning to really unwind. The hotel’s grounds are a point of pride and it’s hard to beat the shade of a cabana beside the main pool for relaxing in the day. It’s one of the largest freshwater pools on the island with a real wow-factor design. For a change of scenery, find a quiet spot by the beachfront pool and enjoy picture-postcard views over the Gulf of Thailand.

Mealtimes at Bandara are equally chilled out. For beautiful sea views and international cuisine, the Chom Dao Restaurant is a great spot to enjoy relaxed meals. For a range of local dining options, the charming Fisherman’s Village is just a short walk away.

Choose from the Deluxe Rooms around the main pool, or enjoy peace of mind in a Family Room where you’re just a sliding door away from the kids in their own fun space complete with a bunk bed. For more privacy, the spacious Villas have their own plunge pool and are more secluded. We recommend the luxurious Pool Villa Suites, which come with plenty of additional space, extra privacy and a private pool.
