Sunwing Resort is a full-service four-star family resort just outside of Phuket. Located just steps away from Bangtao Beach, and 20-25 minutes from most of Phuket’s popular attractions, Sunwing is a great escape for families looking for fun and relaxation.

Bring The Kids!

Sunwing Resort - Kids

The resort caters to families with small children, and serves a predominantly Scandinavian, and Western European client base. With seven large swimming pools, evening concerts for children, a children’s play area, child care services, and kid-friendly dining options, Sunwing Resort is one of the best kid-friendly resorts in Phuket. The hotel is located just five minutes away from Phuket FantaSea, one of Thailand’s best theme parks.

Swimming Pools Are The Selling Point

With seven gorgeous swimming pools, and two water slides, the pool area is always busy, but never feels crowded. The hotel staff does a great job of maintaining the pools, and the beach front, while keeping the children safe. Adults can belly up to the pool bar or get a cheap massage on the beach, while the kids can roam the resort grounds and make new friends.

Dining Options

The resort has two restaurants, La Tasca, and Fino. Fino is the resort’s fine dining option, and has some quality cuts of steak, and a classy ambiance. La Tasca is the resort’s staple, serving up food very quickly, and catering to families with small children. Traditional Thai food and international choices are available, and are sure to satisfy just about any palate.

Breakfast and lunch can get a little hectic. With children running around, and busy waitresses often serving more tables than they’re capable of, the service can be occasionally lacking. Prices around the resort are a little steep compared to what you’ll pay in central Phuket. While Bangtao Beach isn’t the most developed beach in Phuket, there are several quality local food options available on the beach.

Choose the ground-floor Royal Suites

Rooms are clean, modern, and spacious. All rooms are air-conditioned rooms and include a refrigerator, microwave, and cutlery. A Tesco supermarket is just a 15-minute walk, or a short 100-baht Tuk Tuk ride away, so you can easily pick up some groceries before your stay. Request a ground floor “Royal Suite”. You’ll be just a short walk from the beach, and have easy access to any of the seven pools. Family suites offer wo bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a spacious balcony.

Sunwing Resort - Phuket


Located 25 minutes from the airport, shuttles are available for a quick trip to the resort. Patong Beach and Phuket are about 20 minutes away. Sunwing Resort gives you a very small view of Thailand, and the resort’s accommodations and customer service make it easy to never leave the resort.
