Introducing Four Points by Sheraton Phuket Patong Beach Resort — Phuket’s latest upscale destination for anything from family-friendly getaways, to stress-free business stays and unforgettable beachside parties.
With the perfect balance between spacious, family-friendly resorts and a pretty lucrative nightlife scene, not to mention a number of absolutely breathtaking beaches, Phuket hits that sweet spot for a wide and diverse group of holidaymakers looking to get themselves a touch of island fun. In recent years, the island has also been welcoming a more stylish, urban approach to hospitality, and among the most recent openings, is Four Points by Sheraton Phuket Patong Beach Resort.
Overlooking Patong Beach and the surrounding Andaman Sea, this snazzy new venue offers a blend of contemporary design styles and unique cultural heritage, and truly caters to anyone and everyone — think couples, families, friends, or even large-scale company excursions. With everything from grand function spaces to dedicated rooms for kids, there seems to be plenty going on here to satisfy any visitor. What to really expect, however, from this new opening? Here’s our verdict.
While ready to accommodate a diverse clientele, if we were to pinpoint a segment that Four Points by Sheraton caters to best, it would be the Bleisure Traveller. Bringing together the best of business travel and leisure travel — or, Bleisure, so to speak — Four Points by Sheraton Phuket Patong Beach Resort takes this up a notch by delivering it all against the backdrop of a stress-free, tropical haven, complete with dedicated service and amenities.
While decor here is sleek and contemporary, the space is brought to life by frequent nods to local craftsmanship, from vibrant murals on the walls, to subtle elements found throughout the hotel. We particularly love the murals — there is something rather joyful about wandering across a property, and having a beautiful work of art take you by surprise.
The Suites & Facilities
With 600 rooms, guests at the hotel are pretty spoiled for choice, as far as accommodation goes. Visitors can choose Pool Access Rooms, Deluxe Rooms, as well as Ocean View and Family Suites.
While the ocean view is a must for those looking to get some R&R, we’ve got a soft spot for the Family Suites. These come equipped with special kids rooms, which feel almost like a wholly different world of their own — with bright illustrations splashed against the walls, miniature furniture, and beds shaped like boats to help you rock the young ones to sleep.
Facilities-wise, the property is ready for anything. On the health and wellbeing front, expect a fitness centre — open 24 hours — and three outdoor pools, including a saltwater lagoon pool and one especially for children. Guests even have the option of morning yoga sessions, circuit trainings, or a series of other activities.
The highlight here, however, is hands down the function spaces, which spans up to 1,200 square metres. You’ve got the massive Ocean View Akara Grand Ballroom with ceilings that rise seven metres high, complemented by two ballrooms, eight additional meeting rooms for smaller groups, and multiple breakout options. Outside, hotel guests can opt to plan their own bespoke events against the backdrop of breathtaking ocean views, choosing between the vast Sunset Deck — a great spot for sun downers and wedding receptions — to the more intimate Garden Terrace.
Interesting fact: the hotel has a Best Brews Program, thanks to a partnership with Full Moon Brewworks — Phuket’s first and only craft beer microbrewery. What this means, essentially, is that you can expect some pretty great beer during your stay.
Food-wise, there are five restaurants and bars on-site. If you’re a meat-lover, we recommend Sears & Co, which serves up delectable prime meats and fresh seafood from its beachfront location.
If you’re more of an all-day dining person, Chao Leh Kitchen has you covered, with pan-Asian delicacies and Western classics served throughout the day. You can also drop by the Lobby Bar for a freshly brewed cuppa, and a quick bite to takeaway.
Conveniently located near both the local airport and Phuket’s Old Town, there’s a lot to see and do around the hotel. While the day away on the white sands of Patong Beach, or head over to the Old Town to stroll amidst the Sino-Portuguese styled buildings. While most hype around Phuket is centered around its beaches and natural wonders, the island is also moving towards more urban offerings, with chic new cafes opening across town, and a pretty exciting cocktail bar scene. While nightlife has been quieter lately due to the pandemic, it offers a good opportunity to really see Phuket in all its glory — beautiful, serene, and yet to be overrun with tourists. This sense of peace won’t last forever though, so better get your travel plans together before it’s gone.
